keeping it real and fashion Wednesday


Some weeks I just don't feel like.......
you fill in the blank.

For me this week it was getting dressed.  I have been fighting a sinus infection, it has been unseasonably warm, I watched my grand boys quite a bit and I finally finished making my studio into what I dreamed it should be.  

In keeping it real, I just didn't feel like fixing up.  So unless you want to see me in my favorite (read well worn) PJ's with no make up or the same pair of jeans and comfy t-shirt, we will be having ourselves a mini pinterest fest here today for fashion Wednesday.

Here are a few of my favorite looks right now.

I adore this pink lace top.   It is on my short list of things to find.  And those!

What a cute look this is.  I really like the casual jeans and sweater with the blazer and nude pumps.

More lace here.  So pretty and feminine and you know how I feel about it!

I was never the biggest fan of grey but this year I am really liking it.  What a classic yet casual look this is.

I know it's not anywhere near sandal weather for a lot of you but I love these black sandals with the skinny jeans and floral shirt.  Perfect spring look, don't you think?

Don't worry mom, there are no ripped jeans in my future but I do like this coral blouse and floral scarf with skinny jeans.  And more yummy sandals.

Another staple look for me.  Jeans and a black tee.  Love the simple jewelry.  Not sure I could pull off the hat but it looks adorable on her.

And finally this blue lace dress...I adore it!  It has been years since I wore a dress but this spring I feel one coming on.  What about you?  Do you wear dresses?  Do you go bare legged or wear tights?  I think this is definitely a mature woman issue we need to address more in another post.

So there you have it, kind of a preview of coming weeks.  I think I'll try to recreate each of these looks for us 50 somethings and beyond.  Which is your favorite?

Happy hump day!

  1. Patty, I love mustard color too. I wish I could wear some of those sweet heels....but I have too much pain in my ankles now for them. I honestly think any age can wear those skinny jeans...if only in black or dark rips for me either. Hope you start to feel better, cause I like for you to model for us. :) Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. I have been in jammies and leggings this week too (we're sinus infection friends this week as you know) so seeing all these lovely pinterest pics made me excited to get dressed again!

  3. I haven't liked my gray jeans all season, but that outfit makes me swoon! Hope you are feeling better soon. BTW I am in hot pink velour sweat pants and a top I pulled out of the hamper lol, so you're not alone :)

  4. Oh man my sinuses have been awful. I finally had to go to the doc last week. These winds and the dry air is killing me.

  5. It sounds like you got a lot done (the studio) in spite of feeling yucky, I can't wait to see the studio reveal! I totally related to having days when I don't feel like getting spiffed up. Heavy work days are like that. I do love the looks you are showing. I have always needed help with fashion, thank goodness for Pinterest. Feel better soon!

  6. Oh, and regarding dresses, I have gotten away from wearing them but I have really been wanting to get back to them for Spring. For the most part I am just not comfortable without hose of some sort. I feel that they really hide the imperfections in more mature legs and I still like that!

  7. My favorites are the mustard sweater & the dress. I bought a dress for an event last fall & went with sheer hose. I plan on wearing it again this weekend and wearing black hose and a little black cardigan. I'm not a fan of skinny jeans; I do like some of the new trouser style jeans. Love your ideas!

  8. Great fashion show ..thanks .. but of course nothing beats a pair of loved pjs.
    I've had to put away my heels for now as I have sprained the MCL in my knee. I have resorted to my flat heeled boots. Hoping by the time spring arrives I can hop into the heels again .
