dressing up everyday fashion

January 22, 2016

It seems my everyday uniform hasn't changed much this week and it almost seemed silly to post pictures of more of the same, but then I got to thinking that your everyday clothes probably don't change much either.

The truth is that unless I am heading out to a party or special occasion, what I wear pretty much stays the same.  But here's the thing, that sameness can soon turn into a rut of not even trying if we don't find ways to add a bit of something to kind of spark up the everyday once in a while.

Take this outfit for example.  I love a pretty white blouse and blue jeans especially when the
blouse includes a bit of lace like this one I'm wearing from Loft does.  Because of the detail in the sleeve all I needed to add was something around my neck like a pretty statement necklace.  I found this pink one at a local thrift store for a couple of dollars and I think it adds just the right touch.  I could just as easily have added a colorful scarf for the same affect.

So even if I wear jeans and a top most everyday just adding a scarf, a necklace or a pretty sweater can take it from rut to razzle dazzle and I don't know about you, but at my age I'll take razzle dazzle anytime.

  1. Oh this looks so pretty on you! I ordered one of the lace tops from Loft a few weeks go but their Whisper White color doesn't look good on me. It looks great on you!

  2. I am enjoying your blogs. I like your other blog as well with so many different varieties in art, desserts and so forth. I have given your blog so others can see. Your a busy lady and that is good. Your blogs are great for age 40, 50 and over. I am 74 but I know my daughter would enjoy what you present. She loves to be a Madonna fashion lady ad the creativity you share. My blog is photography, digital art. My blog is Imagination. Carol Ann

  3. I love a white blouse too. Very cute outfit on a very pretty lady!

  4. Cute outfit! I can't believe you found the necklace at a thrift shop- good find! Sometimes I forget that I can add a fun necklace to something and go from everyday to feeling all stylish and put together.

  5. I too love the everyday comfort of denim, white, brown (khaki).
    It's like an old friend . . .

  6. For some reason, I always feel overdressed when I were jewelry unless I am really getting dressed up. You make it look so effortless. I am going to have to get out of my comfort zone and start adding more accessories to my outfits. It really adds some class. You look adorable.
