I STILL LOVE MY SKINNY JEANS

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a beautiful floral print top, skinny jeans, and mules by Steve Madden

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend and that you found time to relax and enjoy yourself. Joe and I were out of town for a few days, so I am all refreshed and raring to go. The weekend was beautiful and sunny, and the sunshine always makes me feel alive.

There have been times when I would walk out on my patio on a sunny day and just lie down on the bricks to absorb the heat. I can feel the sun beating down on me and the vitamin D finding its way into my system. As uncomfortable as it is to lie on bricks, it still manages to make me feel better. UNTIL… it comes time to get back up. Do you know how hard it is to go from a prone position to sitting on rock-hard bricks? Lol! I am sure that it would be a funny sight watching me struggle to get up.

Even though the sun was out, the weather was still chilly, so a long-sleeved top was perfect. This beautiful watercolor floral top by Caslon makes me smile. I was immediately impressed with the top the minute that I took it out of the bag. The beautiful print might have been the first thing that I noticed, but the soft and silky material was the next.

You will hear me talk a lot about the feel of what I am wearing. I want things that are next to my skin to be soft, silky, and cozy. If I go into a store, I will walk down the racks feeling on the clothing. I don’t care how pretty something is; if it isn’t soft against my skin, then it stays in the store. The top runs a tad large, so I ordered a medium, and I think it is the perfect size for me.

The light blue magnesite huggie earrings are so cute with their little dangles. These earrings also come in Papaya Mother of pearl if you would rather have that color instead of the light blue. I added the matching charm necklace, which fits perfectly in the v-neck of the top. Finally, I added the Natalie filigree hinged bangle bracelet and the Rebecca stretch bracelet in white Howlite and Varigated Turquoise.

I still love skinny jeans, so I am not giving those up just yet. Life is usually give and take and finding a good balance. So, I am adding a few straight-leg loose-fit jeans to my wardrobe, but I am not throwing out my skinny jeans anytime soon.

This pair is by Joe’s Jeans, a brand that I have come to love. I do like the name of the jeans, but that is why I like them. Jeans that fit well are not easy to find, so when you find a few brands that do, you need to keep buying them repeatedly. This is the Icon Mid-RIse jean, and I am wearing a size 31 instead of my usual 30. I have found that I need to size up in this brand to get the fit I want. Since I had been wearing loose-fit jeans that last few times, these skinny jeans felt really tight on my legs. After I had worn them for about an hour, they felt normal.

My dome satchel in ivory is a great size, and I love the lighter color for spring. This leather satchel is one that I just bought, but this color has already sold out. If you would like a lighter handbag for summer too, then here are a few that you might like.

I’ve done a half-tuck with the top in this photo, and I love the look since it allows you to see my brown leather belt. I usually don’t like bringing attention to my waist, but since the top is flowy and not fully tucked in, I like the effect.

I am really trying to get used to mules, but I am struggling. My sister-in-law says that she loves mules because of the ease of wearing them. I can see how they would be much easier to put on and take off, but I have a big foot, and I feel like they look like boats on me. Lol!

This pair by Steve Madden is one that I’ve had for a while, and they must be sold out since I couldn’t find this exact pair. But, I did find several that were similar and will give you the same look.

    Skinny jeans won’t be leaving my closet any time soon. I still prefer them over boot cut and I definitely can’t get into the wide leg look going around right now. Oh well, I know that if the skinny jeans go out if style, they’ll eventually come back!

    I have always felt that my legs are too big for skinny jeans, which is why I have always gravitated to loose fitting jeans. I love the top and this outfit looks great on you.

    Just wanted to say that I REALLY enjoy your blog and I love your fashion style and styling information. I’m a school teacher but I have the staff fooled about my age. 😊
    I’m 63, 5’ 2”, 132lbs and wear 6 or 8 depending on the style of jeans. I have applied your styling tips many times.
    My only problem is that I can’t wear the cute shoes that you model. I have plantar fasciitis and have to wear shoes with good support. Could you please find some cute shoes that also have support? Thanks! Betsy G.

      Try Vionic since they have cute flats with arch supports. Fit Flop brand is also good for plantar fasciitis (which I also have). I have a pair of Vionic flats in silver and another in leopard and I “luv em!”

    I used to wear mules, but a bunion makes it Impossible now. Over the years I’ve incorporated satchels in rotation of purses. I think they can dress up an outfit.

    I can no longer wear mules. I walk right out of them. They look lovely on others, however. Love the blue and white print of the shirt. Also, your Sunday blog was so true. I think we have all felt like that, but “He is risen” is the wonderful three words we love to hear.

    I like the look and ease of mules but I have skinny feet at the instep arch and they are wide at the ball of the foot. Every pair I have bought has been too wide at the top of the shoe and impossible to walk in – with every step I have to be really careful not to kick them off into my path in front of me. Funny that a shoe like a flip flop with a thong doesn’t do that. I had the idea to buy some stretchy sport tape to wrap the foot first.

    I’ve given up on buying them. I’ll keep on working on the ones I have.

    I do love that shirt though. Our weather has been so weird that I’m back in sleeves after three days in the high 80s we are now cloudy and have furnace on. Of course if I buy more long sleeve tops it will be hot again LOL.

    I like the outfit as well. I wish my legs liked skinny jeans and that my waist liked mid-rise jeans. 😫 You look great as always!

    This is a beautiful outfit!! I too think mules make my feet look bigger than they are, so those would be a no for me. I love the look on others though.

    I am glad you and Joe got to recharge.

    Beautiful detail on the blouse. I remain a skinny jean devotee but have picked up a couple girlfriend jeans as an option. Trying to be open-minded. I am not a slides fan. Several years ago we were at the start of a UK vaca. My slide slid off as we were exiting a train and I sprained my ankle. The rest of the trip was by cab or staying on the hop on/hop off bus. I’ve sworn them off ever since. I wear a 6.5 and feel as you do, they add length in my mind’s eye. I have friends that love them. Gratefully, in fashion we can follow the trends that suit us best.
