We often go to Ming’s Asian Cuisine for sushi on Sunday afternoon.
This past Sunday, the weather was starting to get colder so I wore layers, which can make me look like the Michelin Man if I am not careful. It is always a good idea for me to wear slim-fitting pants with shorter boots. Continuing a narrow line from mid-thigh to the toes gives the illusion that what is underneath might not be as large as the top half suggests.
When I wear short booties or any closed-toe shoes, I do wear the same color hose or crew socks as pants. I know it is the trend to skip hosiery, but I am sixty years old. That means my muscle tone is not so great no matter how much I exercise and there are lots of blue veins showing through my white skin so no matter what the trend is, I am going to cover my ankles and legs if what I am wearing shows them. In summer, I skip socks because I am usually wearing open toe shoes but I make sure I always have a fresh pedicure and I do not wear capri pants or shorts.
The gray cable poncho is from Foxcroft last year. The plain gray sweater underneath is a couple of years old from Chico’s. The black ankle-length pants are also old from Chico’s. The bag is old by Calvin Klein via T.J.Maxx.
The boots are by Gianni Bini via Dillard’s and they are also old.
You have likely noticed a pattern in the way I dress. I love to wear classic pieces that fit and flatter my shape. I can mix and match them and wear them for years to come. I hope that sharing my little tips and outfit ideas helps you to put together your own winning combinations.
