Some days, I enjoy wearing bold colors and on other days I feel very subdued.
Sunday was a lazy, low-key, do nothing kind of day, so I chose to wear neutrals.
Napping, reading and going out for sushi was the most exciting things we did all day.
In Johnson City, our favorite place to get sushi is Ming's. It is near my house, family owned, always fresh and the service is great.
This Chico's white boat neck tee with buttons at the shoulders is probably five years old. I bought it in several solid colors and also stripes. When I find something timeless and of good quality that I know I will wear often, I buy every color that is right for me.
Olive is a color I could never wear close to my face, but I wanted a casual pair of neutral pants that were not denim, black or white. These are the NYDJ Marilyn Straight style, and they run very large and long. I am wearing a size two here. My seamstress is now hemming them to a thirty-one-inch inseam.
Knowing which styles, colors, and lengths work best for your body shape, makes shopping and getting dressed so much easier.
I have always enjoyed using a scarf to pull a look together. This scarf is several years old. It is a thirty-four inch square in a silky (probably polyester) fabric.
I folded the scarf in a triangle, then folded the point over about two inches and then repeated until it was one long band.
I tied the very ends together in a small knot and then wrapped it around twice to create an infinity scarf.
Put the scarf around your neck at the step above and then wrap over your head again and arrange loosely at your neckline, keeping the little tie inside and at the back.
This is one of my favorite ways to wear a scarf in warm weather because it adds detail and color without making you feel hotter.
There are many scarves to choose from on my shopping site here.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
