Layering

Morning my friends! I love to layer and fall/winter is the easiest time to do this, but I don’t just mean “layers” as in coat, sweater, scarf; I mean layers as in textures, shine, shapes, patterns, and colors. This morning I really wanted to wear my burgundy beanie with the pink poof. I’ve really been…

Fashion Fits

Hello all! I’m in such a cheery mood, even though this will post on Monday (it’s a couple of days before Halloween) and I just love Halloween! So even on a Monday I am happy! I love Fall, love all the holidays, (only tolerate the snow, except on Christmas Day), and I love to decorate…

You CAN Go Go

Oh my goodness! Who else is getting on this white booties look?? The white bootie reminds me of a go go boot that I could wear with my Halloween (70’s costume) only prettier cause I’ve seen it with every day/work/evening outfits. Some might think this is a young trend and something you can’t do…I guess…

Bright colors=Big Fun

Hello all, There are some bright colors that are very trendy this season (it could be these colors are trendy every fall/winter;) Burgundy and deep dark bottom of the ocean blue are so rich and just draw my attention. That’s what I felt like wearing today; bright colors! I have a flannel plaid shirt (really I’m…

Joys of Age

Happy Weekend All! I’ve been thinking a lot the last couple days about the benefits of aging. I think media, culture, old beliefs give us a skewed perspective about aging. I think younger women have this (fear? Is that it?) about aging that I don’t think is reasonable. Plastic surgeons make truckloads of money encouraging people (mostly…

Fashion and Age Questions

I’ve had people ask me questions before such as: “Does this make me look fat?”, “Does this look too young for me?”, “Is this too trendy for me”? or statements such as “I could never wear that”. I don’t think these are helpful questions or statements. I think women my age or approaching my age…

Embroidered Style

Happy Hump Day everyone! Wednesday is that day where I think to myself, “I can do this, I’ve got through three days, I can get through to Friday”! I encourage myself like that and it works most times. 🙂 Friday makes me happy, in addition, you all know that I feel happy when I think…

How to wear Leopard

Hey all, I have such a love of leopard print and it’s really trendy right now, even for women my age/older so I thought I would take some time and explain how you can use leopard print in your wardrobe! Leopard is very versatile; it can exist as a neutral (dominating your outfit) or a…

Princess Shoes!

Hello! My work week is almost over and I’m super excited, but more excited to share with you my princess shoes! That might sound funny as I’m 53 years old, but let me explain 🙂 A couple of weeks ago I got to go to two of my grandchildren’s birthday party! The six year old…

Pink got me like….

Sometimes a color just grabs hold of me and I love to wear it with everything! Pink is like that for me! I’ve never had pink pants before but once I got these darling ones from Old Navy, they are so flattering and I just love the pop of color (ok it’s more than a pop,…
