HOW TO DRESS AS YOUNG AS YOU FEEL

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old keeps looking young with a moto jacket and distressed jeans

Vroom, vroom, vroom.

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die
Born to be wild

Now that I’ve got you in the mood to go out on the open road and feel the breeze in your hair, I’ll give you the details of my outfit. BUT FIRST, let me tell you what my husband did the other day. I haven’t told a good “Joe” story in a while, and I thought that you might enjoy this one. If you have been following me for a while, then you probably already know that I love Longaberger baskets and that I have Boo-Koos of them. I like to use them for everyday things, such as placing my salt and pepper shaker in them. It looks so much nicer than having the shakers out on the counter.

Last night, I looked up, and on the top of my cabinets was a tiny Longaberger basket. I was confused and wondered how in the world that basket got on top of my cabinets. Then, I looked down at my stovetop, and I noticed that the salt and pepper shakers were sitting out and not in their basket. I asked Joe if he “threw” my basket on top of my cabinets. “I sure did,” was all he said. Apparently, he found it too much trouble to pick the shaker up out of the basket and wants them to sit on the stove without the basket instead. (Insert eye roll) This is the same man that thinks “guest towels” are ridiculous and hates pillows on the bed. We have guest towels and pillows on the bed, so I guess I’ll let him have his way with the salt shakers. Lol!

Do I look like a Biker Chick in this Faux-Leather Moto Jacket? This jacket looks really nice in person, and the silvertone zippers and pulls are nice and heavy. The jacket gives you that edgy look and speaks to the inner rebel in all of us. I realize that not everyone wants to purchase leather, which is a great alternative if you still want to look cool like the Fonz. (the younger generation probably doesn’t even know who I am referring to) And, another great thing about this jacket is that it is machine washable. I have learned to size up with this style of jackets, so I am wearing a large, which fits me great.

I’ve worn a faux-leather moto jacket a couple of times before. Both of those posts showed how to wear the moto jacket dressier than the way that I am showing it today. Hey, a girl has to have options, right?  Here is the post showing a brown faux-suede jacket, and here is the post showing a cream faux -leather jacket.

You know that I love distressed jeans, and they go great with this moto jacket. Tattered and torn, and of course, faded, and you have yourself a great pair of jeans. Lol! The crop flare jean or pant is hard for some to know what shoe to wear with them. I struggle when it comes to shoes with any outfit; they are my Achilles Heel. (pun intended) I think that the higher shaft ankle boots look great with this style of jeans. These distressed jeans are by Sofia Vergara, and I am wearing a size 10 in these, and they fit perfectly. I’ll link to more jeans without distressing for those of you who don’t like distressing.

These are my kind of boots! I love the black and white snake print of these boots. They make a statement, and they are the perfect choice to go with the moto jacket. These boots are chic, edgy, and fashionable, all at the same time. These boots are by Scoop, but this style is no longer available. However, this pair by Scoop is almost identical; the heel is just a little different.

No self-respecting “Fonz” would leave the house without a white t-shirt. The one that I am wearing today has a v-neck, which is my all-time favorite neckline. I usually try to buy some “throw-away” t-shirts every year because I tend to get them dirty. What I mean by “throw-away” is that they aren’t expensive, and I don’t freak out if I drop spaghetti sauce down the front of one. I usually order a large in t-shirts just in case they shrink, and that works out great most of the time. Here is a two-pack, and it is only $11.00.

I hope that you enjoyed this Born To Be Wild inspired outfit. This might not be what you envisioned wearing when you turned 40, 50, 60, 70+ years old, but dang, if it isn’t fun! DO NOT let the number of years that you’ve lived take the life out of you. Forget the voice in your head, probably from your mother or grandmother, that says, “act your age.” Instead, remember that age is an attitude, and we want to keep our attitude YOUNG!

    The “Joe story” was hilarious. He’s certainly got a sense of humor.

    Love the Joe story, too funny! So glad you styled the snake booties as I found some very similar on major sale at Nordstrom Rack a few months back and wasn’t sure how I would style them or if I could pull them off at my ripe age of 59. But I have to say you have inspired me to wear them. Plus, I have all the pieces of this outfit. I like how you kept it simple with the white tee but still edgy and fun. Thank you!

      It is a simple t-shirt, jeans, and a pair of boots. But, the whole thing looks modern and edgy.

    My Joe does things like that ALL the time, so I have to choose my battles, like every day. He’s rearranging my spice cabinet, as I type, and I’m pretty organized. Maybe I can send my Joe to live with your Joe.

      Oh, no!!! I don’t need Joe to want me to organize anything more.

    I bought a faux leather moto jacket recently (still too hot to wear it here in Texas). If anyone looks at me funny, I’m going to send them to you.

    I have a whole lot of Longaberger baskets also. I even went to Dresden Ohio on a bus tour with my sister, who also collects Longaberger baskets. I lived in Ohio at the time. I moved to Georgia last year. My husband complained about me having totes full of baskets. But they all made it to my new house. A lot of them ended up in storage. We downsized and I don’t have room. I never thought to put one on my stove. Great idea. Love the moto jacket. And the snakeskin boots. I need something in snakeskin.
