50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO EASILY CHANGE YOUR LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 Joe wants to close the swimming pool in the worst way. He is tired of the leaves falling in the pool, and he is threatening my trees with bodily harm. Lol! I expect a trim is heading the trees way, but I have threatened him with bodily harm if he kills my trees. I only have two big trees close to the pool, but they both have bunches of leaves that get in the pool daily. One is a beautiful Weeping Willow, and one is a River Birch, and they are both huge and gorgeous.
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO EASILY CHANGE YOUR LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 Men don’t get how women can be attached to trees and plants. The Weeping Willow tree is one that has special meaning to me. When we first moved to our house, we needed to clean the lot since it was terribly overgrown. In the backyard was a huge pile of bushes and brush, but my sister-in-law pointed out to me that a Weeping Willow tree used to be in this backyard, but it had been struck by lightning and died. We were pretty sure that some of the sprouts in the middle of the brush were part of the Weeping Willow tree that was coming from the old roots. So, I cleared away all of the brush and left the largest sprout that I could find. The sprout was only about 3 feet tall and probably no more than two or three inches in circumference. This is what the Willow looks like now.

50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO EASILY CHANGE YOUR LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 On Tuesday, I showed you an effortless outfit with this same shirt and jeans. (HERE) Today, I am going to show you how to wear the same clothing items, but make it look completely different with just a few changes. The first thing that I did was untie the button-down shirt, and I tucked it into my jeans instead. I do not wear a “tuck-in” shirt often because I have more tummy than I want to show. Then, to hide any bumps and bulges that I have on my sides, I added a linen jacket in a neutral color. The rolled-up sleeve gives this a casual look, and the blue of the shirt has a small peek-a-boo show. The linen jacket is old, but you can find similar ones like the ones below.

50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO EASILY CHANGE YOUR LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 I changed from wearing a pair of burgundy flats to wearing a cute taupe-colored pair of ankle booties. The boots have a stacked chunky heel, and the heel is 3.5″ tall. It is amazing to me when you look at how different the pants appear by simply changing your shoe style. When you are ready to leave your house to go out, try on several shoes to see which one will give you the effect that you are wanting. Here is the link to these boots.
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO EASILY CHANGE YOUR LOOK | FASHION OVER 40 Skinny jeans are a great jean for fall. They look awesome with ankle boots, and they are perfect for wearing with knee boots. I like that you don’t have to wrap and try to tuck a lot of extra fabric into the boots when you are wearing skinny jeans. The pair that I have on are by Kut From The Kloth in the style called, Diana. Here is a link for the misses size, and here is the link for the plus size.

      I used to garden a lot, but not anymore. I just don’t have time.

  1. LOVE this look! So classy and a great color combination. And you can easily change it up with a different blouse, blazer or booties. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Alison, this is a perfect example of how easily we can shop our closet.

      It is an easy one to copy, Ann! I am glad that you like the look.

  2. I bought 2 new blazers for Fall and I’m excited to copy this look!

      I am surprised how much I like the shorter look of my hair. I have a full face, so short hair doesn’t always look great on me.

  3. I am loving this series. you’ve given me so many ideas on how to “expand” my wardrobe by just mixing things up a bit!

    Love this look. I also loved that you showed how to change it up from a casual look to this. It really looks so different! I was surprised. You have inspired me to try new looks with what I already have! That will be a good thing as we have two growing teenagers who keep growing out of clothes at home right now! Thanks!

      We have more in our closets than we think. I am as guilty as anyone else for saying I have nothing to wear. What I mean is that I do not want to branch outside of what I usually wear.

  5. I know what you mean about loving your willow tree. My grandmother had a willow. My mom says that’s how I learned to walk…grabbing the tree fronds and walking around the tree. ❤️
