A Week of Sweaters

Our evening temperatures are now dipping into the low sixties, so I am starting to see women wearing jackets and sweaters when I run early morning errands.



I love the look of light weight layers whenever possible. Summer clearance racks are a great place to find those feather weight sweaters that can be worn almost all year round. Add cute shoes, a scarf or long pendant necklace, sunglasses and a nice bag to look great for any errand even if you start out with a tank top and jeans or khaki pants.

This week I had the last of my summer Doctor appointments. I get all the tests we should have done at this stage of life in July because any other time of the year I am too busy to sit still that long. As I was waiting my turn in each office, I kept looking up to see women studying me. I noticed that almost all the women I saw in the near sixty age group wore a "uniform" of Mom-jeans, a dull colored tee shirt and shoe muffins (tennis shoes). I was wearing the first outfit idea above yesterday. I will be turning 57 next month but I refuse to ever wear the "uniform"!

Great outfits, but pleae, some sympathy for women in "mom" jeans. The only jeans I've found that aren't mom jeans OR low cut ones appropriate for the under-35 set are Not Your Daughter's Jeans. That's what I wear,but I imagine they're behind many women's budgets. How about a post on lower priced, age appropriate, not so expensive jeans?

Target!! I found some really cute skinny jeans there and they were by Mossimo. Also LA Idol has cute jeans if you like bling, but they aren't as expensive and not as tight as Miss Me.
