    Casual. I have nothing to dress up for!! Although sometimes I dress up just ’cause I get tired of being casual ALL the time.

    And then the next day, when my feet are screaming at me for wearing heels all blessed day, I wonder what the heck I was thinking of!!!

    I rarely wear a tie. If I do its rarely with a jacket. If I wear a tie and a jacket its usually with blue jeans and my ostrich and eel doable boots. Suits are usually for funerals. But not always.

    I hate dressing up! Even when I absolutely have to, I do it grudgingly. Mostly I avoid going places where I would have to dress up.

    That’s one thing that bugged me about that cruise. There were at least two dinners where we were supposed to dress up. And most of the people (even kids and babies) were really, really fancy. I’m like, how many bags did these people bring? Not that I even own clothes like that, and I certainly wouldn’t go buy them for a cruise where I don’t know anyone! I was happy to learn that there was one restaurant (the 24/7 buffet place) where you didn’t have to dress up. That was where we ate for almost the entire cruise.

      I hated that portion of our cruise too! I skipped one as I flat out refused to wear anything but sandals and shorts. Coming from an incredibly snowy and bitterly cold (quite a few days of -40 and colder) cold winter…I was determined to soak up my precious little time I had to wear sandals and shorts. I purposefully did not bring dress clothes.
      Our waiter told me to come next time, don’t worry about what I was wearing, he didn’t want me to miss out. So I did. I was surrounded by a bunch of country bumpkins who didn’t care anyways.

        I didn’t enjoy the restaurant meals. It was all mystery stuff so we ordered five different meals each time and nobody liked most of it. What a waste. Plus our waiter seemed to think we were not posh enough or something. Excuuuuse me! And if we wanted any drinks other than soda (which we don’t drink), we had to order from the bar and pay separately. And they were on a strict schedule – if you got there at the wrong time, someone else had the table and we were invited to come back in the middle of the night. No thanks! All I can say is I wish I had discovered the buffet place sooner.

          Oh no! That doesn’t sound like fun at all.
          Our waiter was great! I think he was on a high. We were his last trip before going home to see his family for 1 month. He had been away from home for 9 months already.
          The food was all awesome. He would even order 2 plates all at once, as sometimes i couldn’t decide. The food was excellent. Except for one meal. But then you can expect to get something you don’t like once in a while.
          We definetly wern’t posh, and our waiter i think enjoyed it!!

      Haha… this reminds me of the one time my mom dragged my dad on a cruise ship. He swore that he’d *never* go, that he’d spent enough time on a “cruise” when he had to serve in the Korean War!! But they wanted to go to Alaska, and had heard wonderful things about the Alaskan Cruises. So they booked it, and then my dad found out that they had to wear a coat and tie!! Oh, lord almighty, the weepin’ and wailin’!! I think Mom finally bought him a suit coat, although he threatened to wear the crushed black velvet one that he wore back in the ’60’s when my brothers were in HS, and that was their Orchestra Uniform!!

      It all turned out well. They took the Alaskan Cruise (made it the third leg of their trip… fly out, bus/train for the land portion, then cruise the Inside Passage back to WA), and had a wonderful time. He didn’t even complain about having to dress up.

    Casual ALL the way. Not sloppy casual…just no slacks! And definitely not a tie and sport jacket!
    I am thankful my industry has changed and casual /hip casual is in.

    casual…can pj’s be an option?

    Casual, but I do like dressing up occasionally. It’s always fun to put a cute dress on and get all dolled up. It’s work though, so I wouldn’t want to do that every day! Like, twice a year maybe! lol

  7. Joy says:

    I save dress up clothes for weddings and funerals.

    I HATE to get dressed up.

  8. Karen Joy says:

    I hate dressing up.Casual for me.

    Casual. Getting dressed up usually ends up in a big stressful mess for me! Something that fit nice when I bought it, all of a sudden looks horrid and then you’ve got nothing to wear and you can’t find the right shoes, your hair won’t do a thing, you haven’t slept well so you look like death!

      That’s so funny Sue that sounds just like somthing I would say about dressing up to go some where. I thought I was the only one who had melt downs trying to put somthing together to go out. Some times you can find the perfect out fit but no shoes to go with it or visa versa. I’d say I dress mainly causal occasionally I dress up. This part of Montana is very casual you have a few choices jeans, jeans or jeans.
