Fall Trend Sleeveless Long Vest

A Fall Trend I love is the Sleeveless Long Vest!  A great piece to add to your wardrobe because of its versatility and ability to make the outfit.  Some styles are more casual than others but the long sleeveless vest’s versatility permits it to work over jeans and a t-shirt, leather leggings, a dress, dressy trousers, shorts and a skirt and top – you name it, it works with it!

I’ve selected various Sleeveless Long Vest style options and at different price points.  If interested in finding more information about the items click on the highlighted words above the photo.

Back to School 2015

Summer 2015 was fantastic but today the gang heads Back to School!!  Each year gets tougher for me.  This year my son (who will not let me post pics of him) graduates from High School, Liz heads into her sophomore year, Cate enters 8th grade and graduates Middle School and Ali, our youngest, goes into 5th grade – our last year as parents of an elementary schooler…seems surreal!  However, with Back to School comes Back to School fashion!

Here are a few photos of my girls and their choices for that all important first day back to school outfit.

Striped tee with white jeans 3 ways

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Shopping my closet,  playing around with pieces in my wardrobe and putting different outfits together is happy time for me.  For Women over 40 the loss of a defined waist starts to become a reality. So using techniques that do not draw attention to the middle, like leaving tops out and choosing jeans that have a high waist, are helpful in camouflaging that area.

Two very basic pieces – a Gap striped relaxed black and white t-shirt and Gap 1969 destructed resolution true-skinny high-rise jeans are combined to create three classic yet different black and white looks.

First is the casual outfit.  I turned up the jeans a bit to create a cuff and mixed the pieces with a black denim jacket, super comfortable Roxy Ventura Crochet slip-on sneakers, my silver Nantucket basket necklace, diamond studs and Chanel sunglasses.

Pulled hair back in an unfussy, low, casual pony tail that I don’t pull through all the way.

The second is a comfortable day out shopping outfit.  Worn with BP booties from Nordstrom, carrying a red tote from Zara with an Hermes red enamel H bracelet.  Bringing in the pops of red makes the outfit more fun.

Lastly, the dressiest outfit of the three.  Wearing platform heeled sandals by Vince Camuto…

One rainy day or any day, spend a little time picking out a few pieces and mix them with different shoes and accessories and see if you can create one outfit, 3 ways!
