Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is looking modern and stylish in this navy sweaters with white anchors, white ankle pants, and navy flats

I resolved for 2021 to try new retailers, so when Appleseeds reached out to me, I was eager to give them a try. It is funny that today’s “new” retailer is actually turning 75 years old!  I am thrilled to introduce you to this new/old retailer, and I can’t wait to hear what you think about this outfit.

You don’t endure that long as an apparel retailer without having quality clothing that women love. Appleseeds has branched out from one store in Massachusetts to a thriving e-commerce business. They blend timeless tailoring with modern fabrics to deliver classic styles that are perfect for today’s modern woman.

This Anchors Aweigh V-Neck Sweater is exactly what I need for spring weather. I love the anchor motif, and it makes me think of sailing with a warm breeze and calm blue waters. The bright white anchors pop off of the deep navy background and look perfect with my white pants. The v-neck, cuffs, and hemline are all finished with ribbed trim, and the sweater has small side slits for ease of movement.

When this sweater arrived, I was immediately impressed with the quality of the sweater. I thought for a minute that the sweater was reversible since it is double layered. This is a wonderful example of the quality of the sweater. Since I wasn’t sure of the sizing, I ordered a large in the sweater. I would rather something be a little big on me, as too small. I probably could have worn a medium, but I like the larger size since I will also be able to wear a button-up shirt under it if I choose to.

I love the look of the Dennisport stretch twill pants. Twill pants are trending, and so are straight-leg pants, so these are a win, win in my book. This is an updated version of the classic twill pants, and I only have good things to say about them.

I wasn’t sure about sizing, so I ordered a size 8 and a size 10 to be sure that I would get one to fit. The 10 ended up fitting me perfectly, and I think that the 30″ inseam is perfect to wear with my summer flats. These have a zip fly and sit at your natural waist for a comfortable fit.

The pants come in several colors, including a beautiful buttercup yellow pair that is high on my radar.

You know that I have been trying to wear more flats lately, so these Bandolino navy flats were the perfect choice for this outfit. The shoes are crafted of leather, suede, or gorgeous patterned fabrics (there are lots of choices in this flat), and they feature a 1/2 heel. I know that you ladies who love low heels will love this shoe.

This stylish pair of flats will look great with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, and cropped pants. They are very versatile and a classic design that won’t go out of style any time soon. I am wearing my usual size 9, and these fit me great.

  1. This outfit is so cute. I’ve been getting Appleseed’s catalog for years. Their products are really nice but limited in sizing. Being plus size does not allow for getting most things. Forgive me Tania but your early comments sound like they were written by Appleseed’s for a commercial.. Luv your blogs.

  2. I’ve just started seeing some advertising for Appleseeds and wondered about them …Outfit is a winner – great choice…..

  3. Phyllis R. says:

    I love Appleseeds, their clothes are classic and good quality. Not at all dowdy in my opinion.

  4. Gina Ryals says:

    I’ve never heard of that company but love the outfit today.

  5. I have never heard of them. Thank you for introducing me to something new. Love the outfit.

  6. Appleseed’s quality clothing is generously cut, I would suggest going down a size (medium) for tops so that the shoulder seams fall properly. As I mentioned in a previous comment (2/23) and several readers have also noted, their clothing looks rather stoic (dowdy) in their catalog (or website), but when styled and presented in a modern way, it can be very attractive as you have shown here!.

    PS Medium (2-2 1/2″) platform wedges are a great alternative to flats. They have the advantage of “no heel”, but still provide the slimming effect of added height.

  7. Never heard of them before, I will have to check them out!

  8. Navy and white is such a classic, spring look

  9. Diane Hartford-Schulert says:

    Wow,I would be excited to see those yellow pants you talked about! Again, you look fabulous lady! And, last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JOE!

  10. Donna Clopton says:

    I’ve never heard of this new/old business but I will definitely be checking it out! Thanks for highlighting businesses that are the “usual” places we shop!

  11. Cute, crisp and classy! Love it!

  12. Looks like Appleseed’s has some nice things.
    The outfit looks great on you!
    I’m not big on the anchor motif though.
    The pants are nice and the choice of shoes is terrific.

  13. The Nautical look is great for spring!

  14. Michelle L Comerford says:

    I Love this look – very classic and fresh looking. I had forgotten about Appleseeds – I will definitely be taking a look.

  15. Perfect outfit for when you want to acknowledge that it is spring but it is still cool. We usually end up having a lot of days like that in Kentucky.

  16. Sue Epling says:

    Such a cute sweater, I LOVE the anchor motif! You look adorable ❤

  17. Never heard of that company. I’ll have to go look. I like the idea of white twill pants since that would be so much cooler than jeans.

  18. Very cute and “springy” outfit. Looks good on you. I like the sweater and will have to check out the company.

    1. You will love them, Janet.

  19. I’ve shopped Appleseeds for years as did my mom years ago. Their clothes are very good quality and wear well but I watch for their sales. Since they are in the Northeast, I feel the company has a “preppy” vibe which is classic. I bought a lined short coat years ago and I just saw it in the Appleseeds catalog…I probably would do well living in “preppy” country. lol

    1. I love hearing everyone’s experiences with this company. They do have that preppy and classic vibe.

  20. You look very “springy” in this outfit. Love the shoes and glad to hear about the quality of the items. I will check them out!

    1. I think that you will like everything, Deanna.

  21. Classy and classic look, Tania. Takes me back to my college preppy days. I’m going to check out the whole catalog 🙂

    1. Yes, I agree, Wendy. This is a very classic and preppy look.

  22. Love Love Love!!! Thank you for introducing me to a “new” retailer!

    1. Tasha, it had been my mission this year. Try new things, and getting out of my comfort zone.

  23. I love the look. I will check out this company. Thank you.

    1. Thanks, Rory. I loved the look also.

  24. This outfit is perfection! Thank you for introducing me to this company.

    1. I think that you will like this company a lot!

  25. I missed the scripture today 💕

    1. It will be back tomorrow.

  26. I just love seeing the white pants and nautical top. Gives us all hope that Spring and Summer are definitely coming. Great outfit!

    1. Judy, I think that it looks like spring also.

  27. The outfit you’re wearing from APPLESEED looks good on you, but in checking out their catalog, the clothes are pretty dowdy.

    1. Olivia, you have to look at each item in the way that you would wear it. What you might consider dowdy in the catalog, you might think looks awesome if you saw someone styling it. I have several more outfits upcoming with them, I think that you will see what I mean.

  28. Nancy Finney says:

    This is so cute. Love it with the navy flats! I’m a huge fan of white pants as long as they aren’t too thin and show through.

    1. The pants are lightweight, but I don’t consider them see-through.

  29. I will have to try this company- your outfit today is classic & cute & as usual, you look great!

    1. Yes, a classic style that I can wear for years to come.

  30. Love the outfit on you! I have not heard of this company I am going to check it out thank you! Birthday wish for Joe!

    1. I am sure that you will love them, LuAnn.

  31. This outfit really makes me miss cruising!! I have never heard of them but will definitely check them out.

    1. I thought about a cruise when I saw the sweater also. Lol!

  32. I have never heard of this company so will have to take a look around their site. I like the V neck of the sweater you have on.

    1. I am a huge fan of v-necks, and I can’t believe the quality of this sweater.

  33. I love the sweater. The whole outfit is great and really suits you .

    1. I loved the sweater also!

  34. I have never heard of them but the clothes are cute. I ordered a white denim jacket. Thanks!

    1. I think that you will love them. I got a red jacket from them.

  35. Anchors aren’t my thing but looks great on you! I have never heard of the company. Unfortunately living in Canada many of the clothes are not within my budget due to exchange rates/shipping costs/duties/ sales not offered in Canada. However I still enjoy you modelling the fashions.

    1. Lorie, anchors have become my thing this year. I understand that a lot of my Canadian readers have issues with the exchange rates/shipping costs/duties/

  36. Hi Tania,
    I’m delighted to see you feature Appleseed’s clothing this morning. I’ve been shopping with them for at least 25 years. They are my go-to for basics like tees and tanks, plus I’ve gotten several very nice sweaters, blazers and jean jackets as well. The customer service is also very good. I hope your readers will give them a try.

    1. Judy, that is awesome! I haven’t tried their tees, but I will put them on my things to try list.

  37. Thank you for trying them. I had heard from a friend about this company and just havent tried it yet.

    1. Patti, I am glad that I tried them. I have a couple of more outfits to show later in the month.

  38. Irene Ferrin says:

    Love the outfit!!

    1. Thanks! I love it too.

  39. Bev Martin says:

    I have been buying Appleseeds clothing for 10 years or more. I wait for the sales and get some good buys. Get their catalog so you know when the sales are available. Great quality clothing.

    1. Bev, that is wonderful to hear. How did I miss out on this company? The quality is great.

  40. I like the quality of this outfit. Anchors are not my thing but the rest of the sweater seems great, the v neck, the color, the proportions and quality. Seems like a good new/old company.

    1. I love the quality! Anchors are my thing this year, so I grabbed this sweater as soon as I saw it.
