I keep repeating to myself…”50 is not old, 50 is not old,” but my feet are saying that they feel like they are at least ninety-two years old. I have done a ton of walking, but this year I was smart enough to come prepared. I have blister bandaids packed, and I have been wearing comfortable flat shoes. Even with all of that, my feet are swelling from the heat and the sheer amount of walking. I like looking for the silver lining and the rainbow amid rain showers, so I am grateful that this convention center is tall instead of long. I have gotten to ride a lot of escalators this year, instead of walking for miles to get to the other side of the center. It is all about perspective!
Today is the last day of the convention, and tonight I will be getting all dressed up for a gala event. I have a long gown to wear to the gala, and I hope to get a picture before the night is over. We have dinner reservations for after the party, but they are not until 10:00 pm. I will be dragging my tracks, but I am sure that I will be having a blast. Lol! When we were young, it didn’t matter how tired you were; you just wanted to have fun. I am trying to recapture some of my youth by reminding myself that life is short; we need to remember to smell the roses whenever we can. Here is another outfit from the capsule wardrobe. This outfit is about as simple and easy as it gets. I am wearing a beautiful bright blue swing dress that I bought from Old Navy. This dress is the short sleeve version, but they are available in sleeveless and long sleeves also. I find the swing dress flattering, but if you are bigger chested, you might not like this style. My daughter thinks that the swing dress looks like a tent on her, but I like this style because it hides my tummy. You need to try on all kinds of styles to find out what works best for your body type. I am wearing a large in this dress, and it has plenty of room. Here is the link to the swing dresses.
My fawn-colored booties are also from Old Navy. These are a pair that I have had for a couple of years, and I still find myself reaching for them over and over again. They are comfortable as well as stylish, and that is two of my must-haves when it comes to shoes. These are on sale for 30.00, so be sure to grab a pair for yourself while you can. I am wearing my usual size, so they run true to size. Here is the link to the booties.
Oh my goodness, I just realized that my denim jacket is from Old Navy also. I am going to have to make sure that I tag them on Instagram. Head to toe look by Old Navy!!! My jacket is what I call a medium color; it is not too light and not too dark. I love a cute jean jacket, it goes with almost anything, and you can wear them all year around. Here is the link for the medium colored jacket, and here is the link for the dark version.
