Getting dressed each day is a chance to celebrate life and our style and to add joy to our surroundings. I don’t save things for someday, so I try to wear everything in rotation and enjoy the items even if I stay home for the day.
Saturday – We had nothing planned since it was raining and cold that day. Formula – Warm sweater or sweatshirt with soft knit pants. The half-zip sweatshirt from Banana Republic Factory is a few years old (similar sweatshirt here.) The short boots are also old, by Sam Edelman (similar booties here), and the knit pants are here.
We had Chicken soup for lunch, read books, and watched some of our favorite videos of people walking around Milan, Italy. I’m holding the book ‘The Great American House’ by Gil Schafer here. The videos are addictive if you love people-watching and fancy cars. Some of the videos are here – here and here.
Sunday – Church, brunch, and visiting my parents. Formula – Tweed jacket here– wool pants here – slim tank here – belt here – nude heels similar here – woven leather bag similar here.
Monday – Dermatology appointment followed by a visit to the grocery store. Formula – Cashmere sweater (similar here), black jeans (here), silk scarf (similar here), short boots (similar here), and simple bag (similar here and here).
I folded the fifty-one-inch square scarf in a triangle and placed it at my throat. Wrap the ends to the front and pull the fabric away from your chin.
Tuesday – Lunch with women friends. The jacket here is worn as a top, jeans here, similar heels here, and bag here.
Wednesday – Another rainy day, so I did chores and relaxed at home with a good book. This one is ‘Wear It Well’ by Allison Bornstein here. The cotton sweater is old (similar sweater here), the jeans are here, and similar short boots are here.
Thursday – Sunshine and warm weather mean I’m going for a long walk. The phone bag is here. All the other items are old, so I’ll share links to similar ones. Ball cap – Sweater – Tank – Leggings – Shoes.
Friday – Picking up prescriptions and running errands with Mr. Mickey. The flats are here, the sweater is here, the tank is here, the jeans are here, a similar belt is here, and a similar bag is here.
One of the best things about being in my late sixties is getting dressed to please myself as I enjoy day-to-day activities and carve out some self-care time. Caregiving and devoting ourselves to others’ needs without regard for ourselves can be completely draining, so make yourself a priority, too.
