What I Wore On Casual Friday

I love Friday’s!

Friday is the only day that I wear pants to work and since I don’t have many pairs you’ll probably remember these.  As a matter of fact you will probably remember the entire outfit as I have worn the same Ballerina Slippers and sleeveless tank top with them. 

However, if you are one of my new recent followers then it’s all new to you and welcome to my world!

Tomorrow is the first day of Autumn and the summer sun is quickly fading, but I am sure that we will have a few more warm days before the end of the month. 

I celebrated my 55th Birthday yesterday and although I didn’t reach my weight loss goal, I haven’t given up and will be adding a bit more exercise to my daily regiment.

A recent report showed that Americans over the age of 50 are not getting enough exercise which can lead to several diseases including an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer. 

Unfortunately, I spend too much time sitting in the car and at my desk but not enough time walking or exercising so I have decided to get in at least 30 minutes before going to bed.

Do you get enough daily exercise?

 I like these tie-dye palazzo pants because they are uber comfortable and are forgiving to flatter any figure.  I chose to carry this purse because of the mixed pattern and I think it gave the outfit a bit of a lift – what do you think?

Maxi Dress and More in Store for the Delaware Blogger

Wow, the weather this evening has really cooled down, as a matter of fact I might have to turn off the AC and open up the windows.

Saturday as I was clearing the pool deck in preparation to closing it for the season I started getting sad because I am going to miss the heat of the summer.

However, I am looking forward to less humid days and wearing maxi dresses like these will become a bit more regular.

This is one of my favorites because I can change out the gladiator sandals for a pair of flats or booties and just throw on a cardigan if there’s a nip in the air.

I wasn’t going to post today because I was a bit behind with my posts and not feeling up to writing yesterday because my first radio broadcast on AAU Teen Talk Radio didn’t turn out as well as I wanted.

fashion after fifty

I did well, but my headphones cut out a few times which cause dead air while live broadcasting and although I haven’t listened to the replay, I am disappointed.  Hubby said, it was the first one and not to be too upset as did our Executive Producer Chevona, but still I am a bit upset.

Did you listen in?  If not, I hope next Sunday you will have an opportunity to do so because the subject will be “Social Media Etiquette for Boomers”.  Yesterday’s show was “Social Media Etiquette for Students” and my special guest was Lisa Bryant, who wrote a great blog post on social media and Greeks in College.

Well this too shall pass and I know that the broadcasts will get better, so it’s onward and upward, but right now, I heading upwards to bed as this is going to be a busy week.

Today was a busy day as I covered an event for AARPDelaware, and if you check my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages you’ll see some highlights from the “Adopt-A-Room” event held at the Ronald McDonald House.  I will be writing a blog post about the Ronald McDonald House, so stay tuned, as the tour was very inspirational.

Oh, I forgot to ask, how was your weekend?

What I Wore Last Week – Part 2

Happy Thankful Thursday!

I’m back with another work wear OOTD and this time it’s my second favorite color combination – black and yellow or as I like to call it my “Bumble Bee” combination.

I think I may have posted this dress before, but since I liked it so much I decided to give it another a second post.  However, this time I chose to wear my black sandals from Sears as opposed to the yellow wedge sandals that I wore from Avon.

dressing for less from Ross

The purse however, is from Avon and the necklace was a gift that I received from the crew in California from the Depend Commercial Photo Shoot.  Do you remember that post?  If not, relive it here!  The bangle bracelets were purchased from Burlington which I wore to the Wilmington White Party.

I love this dress from Ross and might have to check back to see if they have it in another color – I think it would be great in green, what do you think?

Well tomorrow is the last day of posts from this week’s “What I Wore Last Week” and it will actually be a two-fer.

Remember When the Summer was Longer?

Whoa, what happened to the summer of 2016?  It seems as though we were just getting ready for Memorial Day and then the 4th of July and now on Monday it will be Labor Day.

What happened to the summer of 2016?

Do you remember when it felt like summer lasted a lot longer than 93 days?  Now it seems like winter lasts longer than 180 days!  I have a Yard Sale scheduled for Saturday but because I was so busy during the season this is the only one I have planned.  Perhaps I will have an opportunity to de-clutter more of the house including my closets to have another one in the fall.

casual summer outfit

Anywho, today’s outfit is actually a throwback from two  summers ago. The Tie Dye top and Canvas Sneakers was created specifically to wear to A Radiant Orchid Summer Party, which was a blogger event sponsored by Rit Dye.  If you don’t remember the event or didn’t have an opportunity to see the post – click here to revisit it or see it for the first time.

I bought several bottles of fabric dye afterwards but never had an opportunity to create any other outfits.  I am, however, thinking about refashioning these white jeans with a bottle of black dye to wear in the winter so you may be seeing them again in a different color.

Now that summer is fading into the background, I hope to accomplish a few more outdoor activities.  How about you, were there any summer activities that you planned but never got around to doing?

Did the summer fly by or was it just me?

Mark your calendar because there is one reason to look forward to the fall and that is my new AAU Talk Radio Program: “Social Media Sunday with the Delaware Blogger”
