around the house, faded or stained shorts and t-shirts in summer. Jeans, sweatshirts in winter, again stained and/or faded.

I save my new, non faded,unstained for going out in public.

My retirement togs are 100% focused on comfort. T-shirt, gym shorts, and sandals work. In retirement, I spend almost nothing on clothing.

When I had to wear a tie for a wedding, I actually had to refer to a U-Tube site to recall how to tie a tie.

I still make the effort, nice top with shorts or croppies. In the colder months, leggings. I don't care for the stiffness of jeans. I'm out in public every day walking and shopping.

When it's warm and it's almost always warm, shorts & a tank top or camisole and barefoot. When it's cool here, like 30 days out of the year, I wear leggings or sweat pants, camisole and lightweight jacket or sweater with socks.

Tee shirt and shorts twice a day in summer when I garden in the humidity. Jeans/capris and long sleeved knit shirts for cooler weather, light fleece jacket rarely. Sandals or closed-toed sandals and rarely flip flops or shoes.

Since retiring, on 99.99% of the days I wear gym short on hot days and long workout pants on cold days. A t-shirt or "cool" workout shirt. In the spring and fall I wear a baseball jersey over top. In winter, I wear a hoodie over top. Sneakers underneath, ball cap topping it all.

In all that time, the only time I can think of that I was not "super casual" was to attend two funerals.

Usually it is light T shirts, tank tops, shorts, capris, and sandals in the summer. Then it is a bathing suit for lap swimming.

On the occasional cooler days in the winter, I'll wear long pants, T shirt, socks and shoes. If we get a few colder days, I'll bring out the jacket and long sleeves.
