Tweed Leggings and Riding Boots

Hello friends!  Are you feeling refreshed from the weekend and ready for a new week?

We enjoyed some beautiful late fall weather here over the weekend. Now is a favorite time of year for me in north Florida. When the temps start dropping along with the oak leaves, we get a chance to enjoy some fall fashion styles.

I know we are all feeling the anticipation of the coming holidays along with all the glitz and glamour that it brings. But, if you are like me you are also looking for outfits that have a pulled together, yet casual look.  Today, I wanted to share my look from over the weekend, tweed leggings and riding boots.

In today’s outfit, I’m working my style using neutrals and a hint of pattern.  My black cold shoulder top supplies the neutral element to this look with a hint of trending style.  Next, the addition of leggings that sport an interesting pattern of gray and black tweed. Then, I  finish off the look with black riding boots and gray handbag. Now, I’m ready to go wearing my late Florida fall outfit.

Since I purchased the  leggings and top at my local neighborhood boutique, I have found some online links for you.  Interested? Take a look below.

Black-Friday-Shopping

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I certainly did!

This year we have made the Thanksgiving holiday a weeklong celebration with the family. Luckily for me, I was a guest and not the cook. And so now I’m ready to get out and do some Black Friday shopping today.

Because I have been traveling this past week a soft, wrinkle-free black outfit was the choice for dining out yesterday.  Since I found this outfit to be so comfortable, I am sharing the shopping details below. Maybe you have a need for something similar for the upcoming holiday season. Black outfit for Black Friday… haha.

Baby Boomer Style For The Coming Holidays

Rosemary Davis

Calling All Baby Boomers With Style

Are You Stylin’ For The Holidays Yet!

 

Baby boomer style

 

 Hey, Boomers, it’s that time of year…the holiday season is now upon us. Now is the time for some Baby Boomer style!

So ready or not here we go!

November is well underway along with all the fun-filled events and outings. The time is here for family, friends, shopping, cooking, eating, you name it …. and I’ll be right there in the mix with you and enjoying every moment.

Of course, I am always on the hunt for comfortable and yet stylish outfits that can be worn in numerous ways. Just because I am of the baby boomer generation, and we have always liked to be on trend, I want to have outfits with a touch of class, a little edgy and looks that reflect that great baby Boomer Style.

The outfit that I am sharing today is one such combo. Simply because it can be styled casually as I am wearing it today with jeans and boots or I can change it up slacks and pumps for dressier occasions.

How To Wear A Tunic Dress With Leggings 

Tunic Dress and Leggings

TODAY’S OUTFIT

I am a huge fan of tunic dresses and tops. Since I am always looking for comfort along with style,  I was so happy when I discovered the tunic dress several seasons ago.  Before my recent trip to California, I found this tunic dress at my local boutique. It is soft and roomy and has the tailored classic look that I love. It is perfect as a top to wear with leggings and booties which I did in this outfit. Also, the deep blue color makes it a perfect match with skinny jeans. This is one of several tunic dress/tops I have right now but I am always on the lookout for more because they can to worn almost year round here in the south. As you can see here, for fall I have paired it with lightweight leggings and in winter I will add a long sleeve tee and skinny jeans, along with boots. And come our Florida spring I will just go with the dress and sandals. As for accessories, for me the simpler the better, long necklace, earrings and my handbag…ready to go!

HOW TO PUT THIS OUTFIT TOGETHER

My outfit today is entirely from my personal closet. But, if you like what you see and would like to copy some aspect of this outfit, I have posted several links below to give you an idea of where you might find comparable items. Finally, my handbag is one of those soft, inexpensive bags found in the hotel gift shop last year. When traveling and away from home, I always love treasure hunting in hotel gift shops. Luckily I always manage to find at least one unique treasure and it’s always better if it’s off-season and on sale.

Looking for comfort and style in footwear? Look no further, these backless Loafer Mules are the perfect slip on and go shoe. Styled with a rounded toe and metal detail – very chic.

A Good Read For October Is Faithful

Looking For A Good Read?

Try A Book Club

book-club-faithful

I belong to a neighborhood book club, and we celebrated our one-year anniversary this month.  Subsequently, during this past year, we have shared a dozen great books and as many fun-filled and thought-provoking evenings. Therefore, we are always searching for the next good read.

Since, being bitten by the love bug of reading for as long as I can remember, I am always hunting for the next good book.  Ultimately, the thrill of getting lost in the archives of new places and other’s lives makes reading good books one of my favorite pastimes. And, oh what fun it is to share the books that I have been found to be a good read!

After joining the book club, I realized that sharing is the best, the bomb!   While discussing and reviewing a shared book, the lightbulb moments start clicking. “I’ve never thought of it that way.” or “Oh, I missed that part.” are typical remarks throughout the evening. Without a doubt, a book club is a fantastic way meet new people with like interests and share the love of reading.

Faithful a good read

October’s reading selection was Faithful, by Alice Hoffman.

Faithful is a compelling novel which takes us on a journey of great tragedy and the losing of oneself in survivor’s remorse.  While she is driving on black ice, a tragic accident happens. Fortunately, Shelby is saved by a stranger and survives. Alas, her best friend Helene is now comatose for life. To this end, Shelby Richmond finds herself lost, isolated and forever changed. Upon our entering into Shelby’s world, we begin to examine the powers of fate, faith, family, and love, then the finding of redemption and love.

Faithful is a novel that explores the heavy burden of grief and guilt. At last, we witness how the faith, hope, and the support of her surrounding angels bring Shelby to the discovery of her calling and a better life.

After an evening of insightful discussion, our club gave Faithful a thumbs up!  Undoubtedly, Faithful is a club-worthy good read.

By the same token, if you are looking for a few more book recommendations, be sure and check out a couple previous posts here and here.
