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.

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.

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.

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.

Check One Off The Bucket List

Hello friends!

Warning: Today’s post is long on photos and short on words.

Why? Because, on a recent business trip to Las Vegas last month, we took a couple days for a few side trips. And the most amazing of all was our helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. The beauty and majesty of the landscape for me was breathtaking! A picture is worth a thousand words. So, I am going to let my photos speak for me today.
