TWO WEEKEND FASHIONABLE OUTFITS FOR AN EASY GOING LOOK

I hope your weekend is off to a good start! Mine will be filled with family and lots of food and fun. Is there anything better than that??? Even though my dad protested heavily, we are still going to celebrate his birthday, even if HE doesn’t show up. Lol!

I’m the firstborn, and I know I’m his favorite, but let’s not tell my sister or brother because I wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings. Lol! I had FIVE years with him before that pesky sister of mine showed up, so we have a special bond. He serenaded me as we drove to school every day when I started first grade and even bought me a pony when I was young. I’m a daddy’s girl, and I can’t wait to celebrate his birthday.

Isn’t this the prettiest blouse? This Pintucked Flutter Sleeve Top is a gorgeous color and is feminine looking without looking girlie. I usually don’t pay attention to reviews unless they are talking about size, but I read several that mentioned the top being see-through. This top is lightweight, and I never considered it see-through until I read those reviews. I’m standing in bright light, and you can’t see the top of my jeans or bra. My suggestion to everyone is only to buy nude-colored bras; that way, they never stand out under your tops.

Another complaint (a reason I don’t read reviews) they had was about the arm holes being too big. Ummmm, these arm holes don’t look that big to me. Either way, this top is now hanging in my closet because I thought it was too cute to send back. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.

I love these Dangling Star Hoop Earrings. They create movement as I walk, drawing attention to your face. These come in a couple of different color variations, but I chose the mixed metals so I can wear them with any of my jewelry. When I went online looking for the link to the earrings, but I ended up buying myself a necklace. The Stretch Neutral Bracelets I wear all the time are on sale BOGO 50% off, so if you like this look, it is a great time to grab them now.

KS initial necklace

I purchased the Letter Initial Pendant in Iridescent Abalone. When I buy an initial necklace or bracelet, I’m never sure if I should choose a T or an S. Sometimes, I’ll select the S because I think my daughter or DILs could wear it if they wanted. But that never happened, so I went with the T this time. Lol!

I couldn’t resist this Straw Bucket Bag since it looked so good with this top. This isn’t a handbag that I would carry all of the time, but it adds a lot of flair to an outfit when you do. This is the bucket style, so there aren’t any compartments, which is one reason a bucket bag is not my favorite style of handbag. But, since I only intend to carry it occasionally, I can live with it.

If you are a size 27 in jeans, then you are in luck since that size is available in these Girlfriend Jeans. There are also a few extra sizes available in the Curvy Version, but not many. Since these aren’t available to most of you, I’ll see if I can find some similar ones for you. BTW, I’m wearing a size 29, and they have a relaxed fit.

These Studded Slide Sandals sure make a statement! I love the neutral color and how they can go with anything. What do you think about the studs? Are they too much for you, or do you like the youthful and modern style?

Here is a different version that isn’t so “in your face.” They still make a statement, but it is subtle. They are the same price too. They run true to size, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.

Now, for outfit number two. This is a similar outfit, but the style of the top is different, and I’m wearing olive-colored jeans instead of regular blue denim.

This Eyelet Ruffle Blouse is very similar to the first one, but I think this one is more girlie looking. I love the Fuschia color, but the top fits tighter through the chest than the other one. I’m wearing a medium, just like the other one, but this one is too tight and pulls across my chest.

Here is the length of the top. I suggest sizing up in the top; I think it runs small.

This is a cute little summer crossbody. I like the size of this bag, and it would be a great size for when you are out shopping or running errands. It should be able to carry everything you need for short trips, and the shoulder strap is comfortable. This mocha color is not available at the moment, but there is a version with a black handle and strap.

You probably already know that I’m olive-obsessed this year. Olive and Chocolate seem to be the two colors that I can’t get enough of, and you’ll be seeing me wear them a lot this coming fall. These Olive Crops Jeans are some of my favorite. The color is muted and subtle, I like the cropped length, and the denim stretch fabric is comfortable. I’m wearing size .5, and they fit me great.

The shoes I’m wearing are a pair of leather Cole Haan Toe Ring Sandals. I love this pecan color, and I liked the sandals so much I ordered another pair in ivory. It helped that they are on sale for under $50! They run TTS, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.

Which of these two outfits could you see yourself wearing? The pink with olive jeans, or the purple and girlfriend jeans?

    Love deep purple and olive green together! Also wanted to add that too large arm holes on tops are an issue if you have to go up in size to accommodate a generous bust, or tummy. The fashion industry seems to think if you are a size large or over you are at least 6ft tall!

    I don’t mean to get too personal, but what line/brand of bras do you wear? With getting older, I am finding that I need a more supportive foundation 😉 and am having a hard time finding a brand that works….

    Just want to add that I am with you about how helpful/unhelpful reviews are. Some companies even allow a person to post a review that has not purchased the item…for them it is just a forum to sound off and be opinionated. Sometimes I laugh out loud at the nonsense I read. Often people are not careful to read the specs of the item and then are disappointed when it is not what they wanted but is in fact exactly as described by the seller. I read reviews to get a VERY GENERAL idea about the item….and like you said mostly to get and idea about sizing.

    You look good in both. My favorite it the first outfit – purple top and blue jeans. The bag takes it to the next level for me. Not a fan of the Olive pants.

    Happy Birthday to your dad! I would choose the purple top and jeans outfit. Like you, the hobo style handbags aren’t my cup of tea, but carrying one occasionally is okay.

    I’d absolutely wear that first outfit! Love the purple top and the bag. Unfortunately the bag is out of stock apparently, but maybe I’ll go to my local store just in case they have one.

    I like both the this and that outfit. I would wear both outfits. Like you Tania I too have been wearing more of the olive colors recently and really loving the color. The two tops are so pretty.

  24. I really like them both but I see myself wearing the first one. I am not much for the cropped pants. I really like the purple top with the jeans and the bag is so cute!

    Actually, I would pair the first top with the olive crops. I think purple and olive are a better combo color and are a great transition into fall colors.

    The first outfit is my choice. I love the top . It’s a pretty shade of purple and I love that it isn’t too girly. My only tweaks would be no distressing on the jeans and I prefer the sandals in the second outfit. Enjoy your family celebration!

    Hi Tania,
    I love your posts and have followed you for a while now. While I’ve graduated from the 50’s club to the 60’s, I still want to be in style! What I’d like special help with now is how to soften my makeup for my age…I saw some older photos of you and you’ve done that beautifully. Any pointers would be welcomed. Thanks!

    Good morning. I prefer the this outfit. But I would probably buy the this jeans with the that too. Still getting used to square toe sandals. Not quite there yet. Love the that purse.

    I much prefer the darker blouse on you, it looks more polished and a great fit, the deeper colour suits you better.
    I love receiving your emails although here in England we can’t often access the same items, your outfits are inspiring. So please keep them coming xx
