Well I did it, I finally cleaned out my walk in closet…well at least the the top right half of it…don’t judge, I’m getting there! Anywho, in doing so I realized that I don’t have as many long sleeve dresses as I need for Autumn, but instead of buying or thrifting more, I am going to simply wear a sweater or in this case a denim jacket over them.
It was the first day of the work week so I grabbed this denim jacket which has been hanging in my coat closet for over 5 years to wear over this cap sleeve blue dress. This was one of the summer dresses that I had purchased from Ross, do you remember? You know the saying, “everything old is new again”, well you can definitely say that about this jacket as evidenced by the animal print around the collar and sleeves.
So along with my standby animal print peep-toe shoes which was an obvious choice they made the outfit complete, what do you think? Oh, and the necklace was also thrifted new from Goodwill.
On Casual Friday, which as you know is the only day that I wear pants or jeans to work also included denim, or Chambray as some may call it. This chambray shirt has Avon embroidered on it, so I covered it with this long duster which was thrifted from Goodwill a few years ago. Wearing it along with my black jegging jeans from Walmart and clunky shoes from Kmart, I was comfy casual on a Friday.
Do you any denim clothing other than jeans? I have a few more denim shirts so you will see them in another outfit of the day post.
These clunky, chunky shoes are so comfy – what do you think?
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?
Oh, did you get a chance to listen to my Podcast on Sunday? If not, the link is below and I hope that you will get a chance to tune in next Sunday because I have started the Basic Blogging series and I would love for you to call in and join the conversation.
Have a wonderful Wednesday and I’ll see ya on Friday.
Hello friends and welcome to another episode of Stylin Sunday Roundup! It’s funny because I always think about a rodeo when I type the title of this post.
The weather ’round here parts has been unpredictable which is evidenced by these three outfits. The temps have been up and down with damp and dry conditions in between and soon I’ll have to put on some tights.
This first outfit is titled Stripes and Such
Stripes and Such is a mix of patterns with the leopard print booties that were purchased from the Deb Shop in the Exton Mall a few years back. The grey skirt has black side panels so I chose this thrifted top as a complimentary accent.
What do you think?
I do love my cardigan sweaters especially those that fall below my hips.
This is my Polka Dot and Beads outfit. The sweater is a recent purchase from Burlington Coat Factory, the House of Dereon purse was also purchased from BCF but that was several years ago. My favorite “Betty Boop” polka dot shoes, beaded necklace and silver accessories completes the look.
This last outfit is entitled “Goodwill Goodie” and not because of the outfit but because of the leather bag which I purchased for my son for $8.00. He wanted his father’s leather bag but we had donated it to Goodwill last year, so I was on the hunt for another one and this was perfect.
I love thrifting at the Goodwill in Smyrna, DE. Speaking of Goodwill, I will once again be a Stylist for the 2015 Goodwill Runway Show and I am looking forward to working with the group again.
On this “no-work day casual Friday” I’m wearing leggings under a leopard print dress and leopard print flats from Citi Trends. You may remember that I wore this same outfit 2 years ago on Thanksgiving, it’s one of my casual favs. Brass earrings and bangle with a black band watch from Avon completes the look.
So which outfit did you like best?
I hope you had a wonderful weekend and will also have a fantabulous week ahead.

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend!
Today is my 53rd Birthday and later on I will be celebrating it with my hubby and son with a dinner down at the Christiana Riverfront.
In the meantime, I thought I would post a few summer outfits that didn’t quite make it to the blog. However, if you follow me on Instagram you might remember seeing some of them in a “Fashion after Fifty” post.
You know how much I love black and white polka dots, so with this outfit I accented it with gold accessories. Both the top and pants are thrifted, the purse is quite old as are the sandals. The bracelet was purchased at the QVC Outlet in Frazer, PA, Avon watch and the ring is from Old Navy.
This was another Casual Friday with white jeans and sequins top which I had never worn during the day, but hey, YOLO and I’m over 50! The purse was found at Charmingly Linda’s Consignment Shop in West Chester, PA and the studded sandals are staples in my closet.
This was another fun outfit, with the pink lace top, pink gingham shoes from Rugged Wearhouse and multi-color purse from Ross. I chose to anchor the outfit with a black pencil skirt.
And finally my all time favorite outfit of the season, mixing brown and blue with a studded top thrifted from Goodwill, faux Jimmy Choo purse and multiple bangles from Old Navy. The faux Snakeskin pumps from Target are a pair of my favorite pumps so they will be worn a lot this fall.
So what do you think, not bad for an old lady huh…?
Which outfit do you like best?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Today is the 2nd week of the #WWDParty, and the link will be live at 6:00 p.m. So after you get home and wind down, come back and share a link or two of any of your posts from the week.
One of my favorite fashion blogs is FreeUrCloset and this week Nensi featured “How to Layer Like a Pro” which I wanted to try but am by no means a Pro! I can’t wear a lot of layers because I’m warm by nature and menopause definitely doesn’t make it any better so this is what I came up with.
Layer 1 and 2 if you count the Infinity Scarf
Layer 3 is the vest. Believe it or not, this Cable Knit Sweater once belonged to Gloria, my sister so that makes it at least 25 years old!
Boots | Rugged Wearhouse // Handbag | Mark by Avon
Infinity Scarf | Burlington Coat Factory
Reversible Vest | Old Navy
So what do you think – semi-Pro?
Stay Blessed – No Stress in the New Year!
Hello Friends and Happy Veteran’s Day
I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and if you are off today honoring a Vet I do hope that you are enjoying the day, unfortunately for me I have to work.
Happy Veteran’s Day in our neighborhood.
The month is already flying by, can you believe that we have less than 18 days until it’s Thanksgiving 2013?
This is what I wore on the first casual Friday of the month which was by far the best beginning to November that I can remember. After an early morning mini downpour, the temps rose to 78 degrees with bright sunshine, it was almost summer like.
Do you remember this pink suede jacket that I thrifted last year from GW Boutique? The sleeveless tank was thrifted earlier in the year also at Goodwill.
I found these “pink bottom” loafers at Rugged Wearhouse – aren’t they cute?
Have you started planning your Turkey Day meal or will you be eating at a relative’s home instead?
We haven’t made any plans and I am not looking forward to asking hubby because it will be the first one without his mother….maybe we’ll just stay home and have a quiet dinner.
Thank You Vets for all you have done for this country – Stay Blessed!
Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!
Summer is is flying by so quickly can you believe tomorrow is the last day of July!
This outfit which I wore last Friday was totally thrifted from GW Boutique and was very comfortable for the weather. Last week there were several temperature fluctuations that ended with a torrential rain storm on Sunday. Motorist returning from the beach and shore were stranded on major highways for hours. This week we are in store for beautiful, low humidity days perfect for anyone taking a late vacation to the beach.
Top to Bottom thrifted from GW Boutique
Accessories (Watch, Necklace, Bracelet) – Avon

I am so ready for the weekend and tomorrow’s plans include clearing out my little garden because the mint has taken over! I want to add some basil, peppers and tomatos and get a few flowering baskets to hang around the deck.
It’s time to fire up the grill and spend evenings sitting outside, I love this time of the year!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
Well we made it through another week and for that I am thankful. It was a roller coaster of events with all the strange things happening in the world. I continue to pray for the 3 kidnapped victims in Cleveland and no matter what he did in his past, Charles Ramsey, you are definitely to be commended for being at the right place at the right time – thank you bro!
The heat is on so I chose to wear a skirt instead of jeans as I normally do on casual Fridays.
Maxi skirt – Old Navy (last season) // Top – Rugged Wearhouse
Gladiator Sandals – DSW
I hope the temps remain high as the pool is scheduled to be opened next week!
Watch – Avon // Ring & Bracelets – jewelry box // nails be be done this afternoon!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
I am so excited because tomorrow is the first Flea Market of the season at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown and I will be there bright and early! I love getting rid of unused household items and making extra cash while doing it. Yard Sales are also great ways to accomplish this but there is more foot traffic at Farmers’ Market and I look forward to seeing AND buying from the other vendors. This season in addition to the household items, books and of course shoes, I will also be selling wholesale costume jewelry and am anxious to see how it goes. I purchased necklaces, bracelets and rings from a wholesale dealer in anticipation of making a good profit – I hope it pans out – wish me luck!
Today is casual Friday so I’m wearing jeans, PINK jeans…I didn’t want it to be too much so decided to wear a long Tunic over them, what do you think?
Do you like Flea Markets and Yard Sales?
