When we take photos of what I am wearing, I have no idea what I will discuss, but I know I need images to help me tell a story or make a point. In almost all cases, I am showing you what I wore for the day.
Today’s photos show what I wore on Wednesday to get my hair cut and run errands. I wore a jean jacket in the morning, but in the afternoon I switched to a lightweight sweater. By the time cousin Elizabeth stopped by after school to help me, it was 77°F.
In an earlier post, I told you that my pale pink summer sweater/jacket from J.Jill would go with all my pants except the Malibu Punch jeans. As you can see they do go with the sweater! The colors are in the same family.
I often tell Mr. Mickey we need to keep an open mind when starting on an adventure or when we are going to a new restaurant. As we get older, we sometimes become set in our ways and hesitant to try something new. With so much life experience it is easy to say, “That won’t work.” before we even try. That’s what happened with this outfit combination. I told you it wouldn’t work before I tried it.
I rarely shop or buy anything new these days. When I do make a purchase, I look for non-trendy items in solid colors that work well with the other things I own. That’s a workable plan when building a long term retirement wardrobe. I prefer to spend my available income on experiences rather than the latest trend or colorful print top I might wear only twice.
My bag in light fawn is by Kate Spade here. My watch is by Vincero. (Similar here.) My Malibu Punch colored ankle jeans are from Chico’s last year. (Similar jeans here) The white tank is also from Chico’s here. The cardigan is from J.Jill earlier this year. (Similar linen sweater here) The shoes are from last year by Marc Fisher. (Similar loafers here)
If you are one of the many new followers to the blog, you may not know that I do not do collaborations with brands. I do not accept products for review or allow popup advertising, nor do I create sponsored posts. What you see me wearing in photos was almost always purchased with my own money. If I do receive a gift from my friends who own design companies or boutiques, I will always tell you in the post. When I include a link to something similar to or the same as what I am wearing, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.
