On our way to the Splash Park, I took a photo of us and put it in a family Snapchat that includes my sister, brother, and mother. I captioned it, “on our way to play.” My mother commented back, “wish I was there…NOT.”
We all got a big chuckle out of her statement. But, after spending the day in the blazing sun, dodging the HUGE crowds, standing in loooong lines, and walking miles and miles, I understand her comment a little better. Was it fun, maybe, but I’m glad it will be another year before we do it again. Thursday was Dollywood Day, and when they pulled out of the driveway, I said, “I wish I was going…NOT!” Lol! I took a raincheck until this fall; I needed a day to recover. Hahaha!
Over 50 Casual Style / White Tank
This will be a long weekend for many of you as you celebrate the 4th of July. It isn’t going to be scorching hot here this weekend, but it will still be warm. Today, I’m taking everyone swimming, and then we are having ribs for supper. This Friday, I’ll probably be in a wet swimsuit until later in the afternoon, and then I’ll change into an outfit like the one I am styling today.
I started this outfit with a Pima Rounded V-Neck Tank. I’ve been buying a lot of slub tanks lately, but this Pima cotton one is special. I love the fabric, it is incredibly soft, and it has plenty of give to it. The fabric is heavier, so it isn’t see-through and feels luxurious and high-end. I wear tanks all year round, so I like one that is thicker and more durable. I’m wearing a medium, and I think it fits great. The armholes and straps don’t show my bra, so this tank gets a gold star!
Over 50 Casual Style / Olive Drawstring Jacket
I styled this jacket when I did a Try-On Haul with Loft a couple of weeks ago. My daughter always tells me I don’t “need” more clothing, so I left the store without this jacket. BUT, what she doesn’t know won’t hurt her, and she doesn’t know that I ordered the jacket online once I got back home. Lol! I kept thinking about it, which is a sure sign that I really wanted it. This Drawstring Utility Jacket in Soft Moss is so soft, and it almost feels silky.
I love the style, the color, and the pockets of the jacket. It will be great for the rest of the summer and perfect for fall. This is the type of item I wear when we are transitioning into fall, but I’m not ready for a heavy outfit that would be too hot. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits great.
Over 50 Casual Style / Casual Jewelry
If my outfit is casual, I’ll keep my jewelry casual too. I always wear my 18Kt. Gold Vermeil Cross Necklace and the large Statement Hoop Earrings are my favorite. I don’t always add a bracelet to my looks, but the Riveria Bracelet is neutral and looks great with everything. I’m wearing three of them to get the look I wanted. They are also available in silver, which will go with everything, and both are on sale for BOGO 50% off.
Over 50 Casual Style / High Rise Jeans
The High-Rise Fringed Hem Jeans are in the color Block Island Wash. They are a little darker than they look in this picture; I think the bright sun makes them look lighter. A relaxed fit is still trending, and I like the straight-fit leg of these jeans. Come fall, the fringe hem and ankle-length of these jeans will look great with ankle boots. I’m always thinking of more ways to wear clothing, so you get your money’s worth when you make a purchase. These run TTS, and I’m wearing a size 8.
Over 50 Casual Style / Slide Sandals
I have resisted the toe ring sandals, but when researching the Foot Issues post, I decided to order these Cole Haan Slides, and I’m glad I did. These are surprisingly comfortable, and the toe ring helps hold them on your foot. I don’t like some slides since they can go flying across the room when you walk. Lol! These are on sale, 40% off, and I’m going to order the Ivory color, which is 50% off. I always have trouble finding white/ivory sandals that I like for summer, and I think these will be perfect.
