Hit Your Style Sweet Spot: Women Over 50 Wear for Summer Outings
Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence.
Summer is full of so many fun activities...sightseeing, traveling, festivals, and, on this day, lunch with my girlfriends at La Madeleine!
The reason this outfit works for me is.....
1. The Chico's poncho is light, airy, and flattering with the diagonal stripes. It can go to any summer outing and I feel very confident.
This is the PAULA DIAGONAL STRIPED PONCHO AT CHICOS
2. I prefer these METRO DENIM CROPS FROM SOFT SURROUNDINGS to shorts. I just feel confident wearing them and they are very comfortable, flattering, and not hot to wear.
Stripes are everywhere right now and do approach with caution. Horizontal stripes will add the appearance of weight and make us curvy, busty ladies look larger. These diagonals trick the eye into following a more flattering fit.
Underneath the poncho is one of my many CHICO"S TANKS. I have several colors and wear them often....highly recommend. The one I am wearing here is blue.
I am going to enjoy a summer outing much more if I am not overheated and this is why I tend to prefer the light, breezy tunics. Also, on my feet are my FIT FLOP METALLIC SANDALS...they are the most comfortable sandals I own and I wear them often....especially when I am going to be walking many places. They also come in a variety of fun styles.
Finally, I am wearing for makeup Bobbi Brown Long Wear Collection...it is designed to stay on in Summer Heat...I particularly love the long wear cream eye shadow!
Typically, this type of look might be what I wear for summer sightseeing or going out...what do you like to wear when sight seeing or a summer lunch with friends??
Let's go see what JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE has to say about this!
