Birthday Celebration!

The new website has been published! 
Please visit me at http://susanafter60.com/.

Mr. Mickey treated me to a wonderful weekend away at the Westglow Resort and Spa to celebrate my 60th birthday. I wore a tank top and jeans with flat shoes for traveling. 

The Westglow is situated on the top of a hill overlooking fabulous mountain ranges from every angle.

We stayed in the Grand Master Suite during this visit. Every elegant room in the mansion is decorated with different fabulous antiques.

I turned 60 this year. When I was much younger, I would have considered that a depressing thought. Now that I have arrived, I feel as if my life is just beginning. The difficult training part has been successfully completed, and now I am ready to start enjoying my life.

I found the white linen-like jacket on a sidewalk sale rack at Stein Mart last month. It is by Calvin Klein. The Michael Kors jeans were also purchased at Stein Mart last year.

The gray tank top is a couple of years old from Chico's. The scarf is by Halston Classic, and I think I got that one at Nordstrom. It is a large chiffon square which I folded on the diagonal to form a long thin scarf. I just draped it around my neck for a pop of color and pattern.

The bag was from Express last year. The shoes are by Circa Joan & David via Saks Off 5th.

When I purchase simple basics in solid colors, I find that I can wear them in a variety of ways, and for years to come.

This may be the final post on this Fifty, not Frumpy blog site. My webmaster has created a fabulous new website. Included is a shopping cart here where I have added a few items from my closet at a fraction of their original cost, some never used or worn, some gently worn and well cared for. The classic basics in a comfortable crepe fabric are now on sale at the new site and there is a vast selection of scarves.

Some women have written to say that they resent me telling them what to wear or how to live. That isn't the case at all. I am merely sharing what has worked so well for me. Several women have also written to say I look a lot older than fifty. Hopefully the new site, SusanAfter60.com will help to clear things up a little. Please visit me there.

I freely share what I have learned in the hopes that you will benefit from my experience.

Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are indeed the best!
