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.

Tunic Dress With 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.

Begining the week with a million things on the neverending to-do-list? Well, that’s the way things roll. So come on Monday, let’s get a head start the on the week and stay on target.

And so, here I go keeping my ootd simple. I’m wearing my denim jeans and a white tee. Then, layering one of my latest Target finds. It’s an olive green military style jacket by Mossimo Supply Co. In preparation for a long day of errands, I am wearing my new easy on my feet black mules from Target.

It’s just that kind of day and I am on right target!

One of my latest Target finds is this versatile Military  Style Jacket from Mossimo Supply Co.

This jacket is great for layering over T-shirts, tops or dresses. Plus, it’s lightweight enough for our Florida temperatures.

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.

Carry On Luggage And Traveling Light

Leaving On A Jet Plane

 Today’s the day for a new adventure!

Actually, for the remainder of this week I’m heading off to California, Los Angles to be exact!

Definitely, excited for sure! And I’m packing light with carry on luggage for my four days of California sunshine. Checking bags when you travel can be a formula for disaster and a time waster when in a hurry.  In any case, I’m keeping life simple.  I am traveling light with a carry on and tote.

Dressing For Fall

Hello October – Goodbye September

It’s Time To Start Dressing For Fall

Dressing for fall

Happy Fall!

It’s October 1st and the autumn has definitely arrived! And it’s time to change up the colors in my wardrobe… start dressing for fall. I absolutely love this time of year. Now, that the humidity is beginning to subside, you can find me right here on the front porch waiting for my ride. Here’s how it works at my house, “Call me when you come into the neighborhood and I meet you outside.”  No, I’m not nuts! Remember those two Shelties like nothing better that to greet guests at the front door and many times the Grandkids are in the car. “Keep it simple”, that’s  my motto.

A White Shirt Is The Perfect Basic Top

 Outfit Of The Day

The Simple White Shirt

white shirt

I am an avid fan of a white shirt or blouse. For me it is one of the easiest ways to put together a basic classic outfit. The idea that you can dress it up or down depending on your choice of pants or skirt is a total thumbs up.

Most days find me in a rush about town. Consequently, so far this month has been no exception. Starting the month of September with the Labor Day Holiday, my brother’s and grandson’s birthdays and a visit from Hurricane Irma this week, I can say things have been hectic. Nevertheless, when given the invitation for an impromptu birthday lunch for a dear friend, I can be ready in a flash! However, I will note Irma was still three days away from us when I had my luncheon last week. Needless to say, hurricane preparedness was our main topic of conversation.

Summer Fashion Transforming Into Fall

It’s Coverup! No It’s A Casual Wrap!

Summer Fashion Or Fall Fashion?

Are you ready to go from the beach and to step into the fall season? As hard as it is to believe the Labor Day weekend is fast approaching. And my thoughts and style choices are starting to turn toward the fall season. Fortunately, many of  my summer fashion pieces will transition right into fall.

summer-fashion

Case in point, today’s outfit is simple, and relaxed. By simply taking pair of dark jeans plus a white camisole and adding a colorful summer beach wrap, I’ve stepped a little closer to the fall season. All the while, I am remaining cool and comfortable in today’s temperatures.

This multiway wrap is a custom made and hand dyed by a local artist. You can visit her Instagram page @island_dreaming_sg. It consists of one buttery soft, long length of material. When tied at the back of neck it makes a one of kind flowing vest.

And so, do you have any special pieces from summer that you are planning on changing up a bit for fall?

I’ll say good bye for now.

Thanks for dropping by!

Enjoy the Labor Day weekend!

How To Dress In August

Along Comes August

dress-august

Mantra For August Is “Keep It Casual And Cool”

Here comes August and bringing with it is 31 days of sunshine, high temperapture plus plenty of humidity. Aside from the weather, the first half of August here in central Florida is filled with full-fledged summer activies. And then as if by magic the mindset changes to thoughts of fall. Come mid-August the schools are back in session. And, when you live in a college town the community begins to buzz with activity and excitement.  Football fever is in the air. That’s not to say that it won’t still be summertime. But definitely,  the slide into Labor Day is underway.

And so end-of-summer outfits need to be dominated by lightweight fabrics. Thankfully, by adding some seasonal colors with current classics we can easily sail right on through the cusp of seasonal dressing.
