I was reading More magazine last week and the Letter from the Editor caught my attention. What to really wear at 30-40-50-60. Recently I had decided to be more choosy about what I was buying and not just buy white tops, and things that go with everything since I am not working in an office environment anymore. I also wanted to buy more interesting clothing. The paragraph titled “You Don’t Need Any More Basics” hit it for me. It was exactly what I was thinking. The paragraph titled “Step Away From Cheap Clothes” also affirmed what I had decided-buy less but buy better. Take the time to read the page, it made lots of good points.
This shell is one of my favorites though it isn’t new. It drapes nicely, and irons nicely also. I think taking selfies in the mirror takes practice. I have stepped out of my box by not having a jacket on but it wouldn’t show the shell had I had something on. The last paragraph of the Editor article says “Don’t Cover Up As You Get Older”. I took that advice. But afterwards I did put a jacket on, it’s chilly today.
I love this denim jacket. I did buy it a size larger because I may wear something bulky under it. I am very uncomfortable with clothing that is tight across the upper back and arms. This jacket is just the right weight for all temps.
Keep checking back as I will add more treasures as I find them.
I recently found a new top that has become a favorite. I like the way it feels and the swishyness. The colors are perfect and tie dye is making a great comeback.
My silk ribbon bracelet goes perfect with my new T. I found it at the Indiana Artisan Show and it is made by D2E Gallery in Crown Point Indiana.
This was taken in July of 2015. This blouse has become a favorite because of the little bit of blue and blue green among the predominately black and white color scheme.
