At the end of a very long Yard Sale day, we joined dear friends for a wonderful meal at Gourmet & Company.
The wind was blowing another storm our way so we had to hurry the photo session.
This is me with four hours sleep.
Not a pretty sight.
I receive some comments so often, I thought I would address them here today.
1. "I can't afford to buy that."
What I show you was often bought from a sale rack at the end of the season. This is a great way to expand your basic wardrobe without breaking the bank. I show you general suggestions for what to wear to certain events and how to put together a look from items you may already have in your closet. If not, you can keep the ideas for the next trip to the store you do like to shop in.
2. "What if I am 68...72... whatever age?"
In my opinion, the looks I show you are timeless and can work for women of any age with a little tweaking to show your own style.
3. "I can't wear heels."
This is an easy fix. Just wear a heel height that is comfortable for you in a similar style.
For example, this would be a good alternative for the look I wore above. Ellen Tracy wedge.
4. "What do I wear to a summer wedding?"
The look above is great for any warm weather evening event. The jacket gives some coverage and style without making you feel too hot. Look for similar styles that are open weave designs, sheer mesh or some other vented fabric that adds style and coverage but not weight. You can wear these toppers over tank dresses or tank tops with a skirt or pants to give your look a bit more polish.
I hope my tips are helpful to you. The items I am wearing today are all old from Chico's.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
