Comfort Fashion Over 50 for fun Grandmother Style

My grandsons are in town!  In fact, their family is living with us for about one month.  At ages 3 and 20 months, they are one active bunch of boys...and we have already been playing dinosaurs, tickle games, chase, and cars all over the house.
I want to look youthful and fun when I take them out, but flexible comfort is key.  So for me, I go for leggings and a topper in knit. I am more mobile in a legging than jeans...though jeans are great for getting in the dirt!  We have many plans while they are here, so my causal wear will get a workout!  This reversible knit poncho is one I picked up last winter in Stein Mart and I really like it...perfect for when the weather is cool, but not really cold.

But, for now, there is a firetruck on the floor calling my name!  

Have a joyous day! Keep Smiling!
Linking up with FUN FASHION FRIDAY


  1. How fun!! Being with kids definitely makes you feel more like one!!
    And leggings are certainly great for crawling around on the floor!!

  2. I'm a grandma too and know what you mean about looking youthful but still being comfortable. I've been told a lot that I don't look like a Grandma, I guess that means I got the balance right. I feel there is a fine line between comfortable and sloppy. I love what you picked it's perfect for a fall weekend.

  3. Thank you for your kind comments on my recent blog post. I am now back in London and looking forward to seeing my 3 small grandsons this week-end.

  4. The perfect outfit for playing with your grandsons. I love the comfort of leggings too. You look like one chic grandmother!

  5. It is so awesome when you get to spend time with the grands...I love mine...2 are in my town and 3 are in Vermont...Have a wonderful time,,,

  6. Sounds like SO much fun. Your outfit is perfect for the occasion!


  7. Love the look! I discovered leggings last year, and I am hooked!

  8. there's nothing more comfortable than leggings. There is a plus for jeans, though--pockets. not just for the cell phone but that rogue piece of lego. Wish someone would design leggings with a deep pocket.
    enjoy your grandkids. what a delightful age they are.

  9. How fun!!! You're certainly proof that being comfy doesn't mean being sloppy. Enjoy your family time, they grow up so quickly xo

    I'm talking about legacy on the blog currently. What it means to me. How I want the world to remember me. That and my weekly Project Sister Act Link-Up is currently live, and will be up until next Thursday, and I would so love for you to come over and join in xoxo
