Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!
Last week after reading a post on the Fabulous after Forty blog, Palazzo Pants – How to Wear Them with Pizazz, I wondered if they are still a popular style for women over 50, because they certainly are for me.
I have several but this particular pair was purchased a few years ago from Ross and are great to wear to work on Casual Fridays.
I remember wearing wide-leg or “elephant” leg pants with platform shoes back in elementary school in the 70’s. I also remember almost falling and breaking my neck walking along a stone wall after my shoe got caught inside that big a$$ pant leg!
Now here I am over 40 years later wearing almost the same style, thankfully the legs aren’t as wide but my question is, “are Palazzo pants still popular or have they played out?”
I’ve worn these pants in previous OOTD posts, but this is the first time they are paired with this thrifted top from Goodwill.
The watch and ring/bracelet are Mark/Avon.
The cut-out sandals are also from Avon, they have really stepped up their shoe game over the years.
So what do you think, are Palazzo Pants still popular or are they Played Out?

Hello Friends, are you having a fun day!
Do you remember as a child spending hours outside running and playing games all day long? Laughing, yelling, sweating and imagining, making up the rules as you went along, just plain fun. What were some of your favorite games, I remember some of mine were:
Red Light Green Light 1 2 3
Chinese Jump Rope
But my all time – #1 favorite game was “That’s My Car”…which I’m still playing today!
This Mercedes belongs to a friend…but last week it was “my car!”
A girl can dream can’t she?
Now go outside and play – Smooches!
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday
‘Ole Man Winter is finally giving up with temps rising every day this week, by Good Friday all the snow should be melted. Yesterday schools dismissed early so kids in the neighborhood had a chance to play in the snow, 1 house even made a family of snow people including a dog, it was so cute.
I miss not having little guys anymore and hate to see kids that are too attached to electronics. I’ve seen toddlers in grocery carts playing with their parent’s iPhones or iPads. I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to go outside and play! Growing up we were up and out early riding bikes, jumping Double Dutch, playing Jacks, BoxBall, Hop Scotch, Red Light Green Light 1-2-3, Freeze Tag, all kinds of outside games.
I truly miss those times – what were some of your favorite childhood games?
Top – Boscov’s // Khaki Skirt – GW Boutique (Goodwill) // Christian Siriano for Payless pumps // bracelet, earrings and necklace – jewelry box
Melting snow should be gone by Friday

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!
JC Penney was the place to shop when I was in High School, but that was the late ’70’s, now most people think of JCP as a place to shop for bedroom slippers, nightgowns or bedding. So last month when I went to the Exton Mall and by chance walked through I was surprised by what I saw. Of course it was the $3/$5 and $10 clearance racks that initially caught my attention (remember this post) but as I looked around I was impressed by other areas including the lingerie, active wear, accessories, and jewelry departments. Since then I’ve read posts by other bloggers who have had similar experiences mostly positive, and that got me thinking about how we could collectively inform others of the changes at JCPenney.
Unfortunately, we have been reading about their struggle in attracting consumers, the disastrous marketing campaigns and the loss of value in their stocks. I have to admit that I personally don’t like the “us-vs-them” approach because it seems negative and negativity is too prevalent in today’s society. JCPenney was established in 1902, and is a company that should be able to weather this storm, I hope their new CEO can create a positive approach in attracting customers back into the stores.
To assist in this endeavor I am starting a #B4JCP Campaign – (Bloggers for JCPenney). This Facebook page and Twitter account will be a catalyst for bloggers to collectively showcase their fashion finds by posting pictures or just writing about their experiences in the store.
In my opinion JCPenney has evolved to become a more trendy and fashionable place to shop, the store’s layout is boutique-like, pleasant, and not intimidating regardless of your price point. The layout and flow is comfortable and inviting, not cramped or overwhelming and they have the latest fashions for everyone.
Friday a new line was introduced, Joe Fresh Clothing by Canadian designer Joe Mimran. There are high hopes that this will help turn JCPenney around, it may, however, I think the current in-store enhancements will assist in that endeavor – they just need to be discovered.
I look forward to reading your posts and seeing your outfits on the Bloggers4JCPenney Facebook page – have fun!
Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Delaware dodged the snowstorm bullet yesterday, we only got a little rain and heavy winds and today the sun is shining with temps hovering above the 40 degree mark. Next week’s forecast call for highs in the 50’s to low 60’s, Spring is right around the corner, and more sunlight with the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday – don’t forget to “Spring Forward”.
Today’s outfit includes the color turquoise, a color that I like in clothing but not in jewelry. Turquoise, The Gem of Native Americans was very popular in the 60’s and early ’70’s, it seemed as though everyone had a big Turquoise ring or necklace, both men and women. Sapphire Green is supposed to be the “it” color for Spring, but Royal and Cobalt blues are my favorites as well as the lighter shades like turquoise because of their calming effects.
Calm, cool and collected – ready to take on the day!
How does your favorite color make you feel?
Blazer – GW Boutique (Goodwill) // Pencil Skirt – Mossimo via Target
Necklace & Ring – jewelry box // watch – Avon
