Red Jacket Giveaway

I found this knit jacket at Nordstrom a few months ago. 



I love the way it jazzes up a pair of faded jeans.




After I wore it for a total of three hours, I found that I am allergic to the fabric. (Made from polyester, rayon and spandex in Mexico.) It has a decorative large brown button closure.



So this means I am giving it away! 
My loss your gain.




About the rest of this look: The brown long sleeve V neck tee is old from T.J.Maxx the faded jeans are from Chico's. The Vince Camuto boots are old from Nordstrom. Similar boots here.


 

If you would like to have this size medium red lightweight knit jacket, please send me an email with your name and address to Susan@FiftynotFrumpy.com
On Monday I will ask Mr. Mickey to choose a winner at random. 

Congratulations to Debbie Strickland! 
She is the winner of the jacket.


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

Minimalism Is In

Use discretion when adding jewelry and colors to your minimalist look.




In this case, I chose two colors and two pieces of jewelry. Normally my bag and shoes do not match but for this minimalist evening look they needed to.




The jacket, tank, and pants are all from Chico's.




Mr. Mickey took me out for dinner for our Wednesday date night.






The black satin evening shoes are my latest sale score. I visited Kohl's to buy underwear but of course I took a detour through the shoe department. These aren't even my size but I love them and they were the only pair in the store. I put two pairs of cushion pads in the toe box to make them work. They cost less than the underwear... $11.49!



I hope you find a treasure today!

The River Valley

On Sundays we leave behind our schedules and hectic lives to do something very peaceful or nothing at all. On this Sunday we took a drive down to the river valley. 


Our earlier plans of taking a drive upon the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday were abandoned because of fog which lasted until late in the morning. Instead we took a drive down to the Nolichucky River Valley as seen below from the Appalachian Trail.

This rich and verdant agricultural valley is where a lot of our local produce is grown. It is a summer tradition to drive down to the river to buy local fresh vegetables and fruit. 



On this day we found lots of pumpkins at our favorite vegetable stand along with tomatoes, plants, tree bark birdhouses and other local crafts. 

I am wearing a Chico's jacket, necklace, tank and khaki jeans. The Vince Camuto animal print flats are from Nordstrom


Thanks so much for reading my blog and for all your kind comments. I hope you have a lovely week.
