I am usually here on the first Friday of the month with a monthly style tip for women over 50. I know today is the last Friday of the month of March, but if I wait a week for the first Friday...we are already a week into April. So let's have fun now!In case you are a long time reader of this blog, then you are not seeing a mistake...this is me wearing polka dots and loving it. I have said several times I do not wear polka dots because they make me feel older. Well, obviously I had just not found the right polka dot! No one is paying me to try them out...I took this plunge on my own.
I loved the structure of this jacket; the pockets; the fun, creative, springtime vibe; and I always like a collared look. It works perfect for several occasions...including work. I feel younger in it...not older. I actually wear it with another top button unbuttoned and like that openness better...do not know why I did not do that for these pictures.
So my monthly style tip is to try things on before condemning them. I almost walked by this jacket, but it was the structure and fabric which convinced me to try it on. There are many trends in spring I have walked by in the past: lace, pastel colors, sleeveless garments...and now that polka dots have me, I am going to be more open to trying on the others when something catches my
Second tip? That is a bright pink on my nails. I usually do not wear it that vibrant...but also decided to go for something new. It has been fun to wear. Here is how Texas dresses in the spring,,,
The jacket I am wearing is with others from Chico's in the pictures below! You will see the comments are good on this one...others like it as much as I do.
