Saying Goodbye to 2017 in Classic Style
With a Classic Tune
“Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne?”
Ready or not, we’re coming to the end of another year and soon we will be ringing in the new and singing along to the very familiar New Year’s Eve: “Auld Lang Syne.” While it’s a true classic few people know the meaning or the words. And so, we happily hum along after the first two lines.

Jazzed Up Jeans – The Series
Here we are gals, it’s Friday and finale of this week’s three-part series featuring jazzed-up jeans for holiday outfits and parties. Check out part one here and part two here.
In the beginning, I started closet shopping for holiday outfits with some pizzaz and easy to wear comfort too. Enter, my favorite jeans and a shimmery gold top. As the items came out of the closet, more than one choice began to emerge. And as they say, the rest is history. So let’s take a look and see what you think.
Second Holiday Outfit of the Week
JAZZED UP JEANS
Tweed & Jeans + Gold =Daytime Holiday Outfit
Here’s the jest, I am reviewing pictures from my previous post. And I realized that you all might like a look at all three combinations which I came up with while closet shopping for holiday outfits. Consequently, I decided to do a series featuring my denim jeans and gold shimmer top and show you all three looks. Today in the second part, I am wearing a tweed jacket, denim jeans and casual brown flats with a classic handbag. A perfect daytime holiday outfit for a luncheon with the girls!
Do You Incorporate Your Jeans Into Your Holiday Outfits?
Jeans With A Little Shimmer and Glimmer on Top
Jeans are one of today’s number one wardrobe stables. And so, it only stands to reason that we often find ourselves reaching for a pair of jeans even on festive occasions. Fortunately, it works! Just jazz them up with accessories and a little shimmer, and glimmer on the top.
A Late Fall Fashion Outfit
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.
Have an amazing week!
Are You Black Friday Shopper Too?
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.

Calling All Baby Boomers With Style
Are You Stylin’ For The Holidays Yet!
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 and Leggings
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.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed today’s post.
