dressing up everyday fashion

1/22/16

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

  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.

  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.
