50 IS NOT OLD | OFFICIAL KICKOFF TO SUMMER | FASHION OVER 40I am ready for this coming weekend. This is the official kickoff for the summer, and it is time to get the grill cleaned up and ready for action. I am thrilled to be collaborating again with Walmart since I can get everything that I need there for all of my weekend festivities. Our favorite grill is a charcoal grill for the taste, but we now use a gas grill for the convenience and speed. I am looking forward to hamburgers, hotdogs, and maybe some grilled corn this weekend.
50 IS NOT OLD | OFFICIAL KICKOFF TO SUMMER | FASHION OVER 40We have an affinity for Weber grills. I think that we have owned four or five of them through the years. Our favorite was the one that looked like a gas grill but was charcoal instead. It featured an electric start to get the charcoal lit, so you didn’t have to have charcoal lighter. Before we got that grill, we would use a charcoal chimney to get the charcoal hot and ready. After the charcoal reaches the correct temperature, you pour it out onto the grill. The chimney made it much faster and more convenient.

50 IS NOT OLD | OFFICIAL KICKOFF TO SUMMER | FASHION OVER 40The weather has finally gotten warm enough to break out my shorts. These denim shorts by Levi’s are fabulous for any activity. They have the perfect amount of stretch for comfort when you have to bend and move. They are a mid-rise style, and if unrolled, they are a 7″ inseam. I am wearing the color, Middle Child, in size 30 waist. However, I needed a smaller size. Here is the link to the shorts. Here are a few other shorts that will be great for the upcoming summer months.

50 IS NOT OLD | OFFICIAL KICKOFF TO SUMMER | FASHION OVER 40I love this graphic t-shirt. (Get the play on words? Lol!) This tee is so soft, and it has a couple of features that I like. It doesn’t have a tag, so there is no irritating itchiness. And, I like that it has rayon and spandex mixed in with the polyester material, that is what gives it the softness that I already mentioned. I ordered a large in this tee, and that size fits me perfectly. The LOVE graphic can be worn at any time, but it will be perfect for Memorial Day and the 4th of July. This tee comes in several different colors, like indigo blue, gray, and also in a baseball style. Click here for the white tee that I have on, and look below for a couple of others that I like. BTW, I already bought the one with the stars so that I can have it ready for the 4th of July.

50 IS NOT OLD | OFFICIAL KICKOFF TO SUMMER | FASHION OVER 40For comfort, I added these White Mountain brown leather sandals. I like the easy slip-on style, but the braided leather straps are what made me order these. I loved the braids and the wide strap with the large antique buckle. These are very comfortable, probably because of the molded footbed that in on a genuine cork blended sole. The shoes come in several different colors; you can click here to see them all.

I appreciate Walmart allowing me to showcase a head to toe outfit from their We Dress America section. I took advantage of the easy 2-day shipping, and I got my items in very fast. When you live off the beaten path like me, 2-day shipping is huge!

          I hope your weather warms up before long for you. I would love to go to the south of France! That sounds like a lovely place to visit.

  2. I just purchased the sandals and that blue heart tee you had on earlier last week. So cute! It’ll be the perfect outfit for my trip to Byrdstown, TN this week. I’m ready for some fishing and grilling . : )

      Mary Lou, you are right that those would be perfect for a weekend fishing and grilling. I am going to be in Livingston this weekend, so maybe I will meet you at the Sunset Dock. That place is so nice!

      • We love Sunset Marina too! I hope we run into each other! We’re eating in Livingston on Friday night. Wish I could remember the name of the place. All I know is that my parents love it😋
