Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘autumn

Hello friends and happy 1st day of Fall 2012, I hope your Saturday was a good one. My day started with my sons and later we met up with a girlfriend and her son in Dover. Malik drove and our first stop was at Spence’s Bazaar. I took my Clutch Purses down because Lolita had offered to sell them on consignment in her kiosk, God is good! We walked around taking in the sights of fall: pumpkins, gourds, mums, fresh veggies and fruits. I truly love this time of year, transitioning from the heat of summer to the crispness of fall, even though it was in the 80’s today.

Our next stop was Target, I purposely did not get a cart but in the shoe section I found yellow pumps, not the florescent ones which were so popular this summer for $8.98 a pair, and when I saw them in pink and teal I ran with a quickness to get a cart! The black patent leather and snakeskin pumps were 30% off, so I only got the black pair. I will probably go back for the snakeskin’s next week. The clearance racks were filled with some great items and I found two sheer tops which will be worn over camisoles and a Merona Pencil skirt on sale for $18.00.

My girlfriend and her son met us at Target and our next stop was Beauty Max the beauty supply store. The boys veered off into CitiTrends while she and I shopped for over an hour, found some nice units, nail polish and beauty supplies, we also took time to assist others. Using our “expertise” we helped an elderly women who is scheduled for surgery and a young lady preparing for a wedding in choosing just the right wigs.

Tired and hungry we drove to Pizzeria Uno for a late lunch. The food was excellent and the waiter was outstanding. It was a perfect start to the new season and I am looking forward to the rest of the year!

Have a fantabulous night!

Happy Tuesday my friends.

Today’s Autumn-like weather, which officially doesn’t start until Friday had me breaking out the sweater and umbrella.

Have a fantabulous day!

Happy Hump Day Wednesday, I hope you are having a peaceful yet productive day.  I am trying my hardest to wear as many summer outfits as possible before the cool days of Autumn arrive.  I have a feeling that like summer, the tempetures are going to be extreme but at the opposite end of the thermometer.  I haven’t worn this outfit (here) since the Spring when I was chosen “DC’s Friday Fashionista” (here).  It was after that post that I remembered the wheel in the garage, where it has been stored for over 20 years, guess it will soon become a yard sale item.  I vowed to include it if I ever wore the outfit again…and today is the day, it fits in with the Nautical Anchors Away theme.

This is also the first time wearing these wedge sandals, purchased online from Urbanog.com along with several other pairs in April (here).

Doesn’t the first shot look like I was saying, “don’t start nothing and there won’t be nothing!” – lol

Good Morning, I hope everyone is having a great day. Can you feel that Autumn is right around the corner? This morning I turned off the AC and opened up the kitchen windows allowing in some fresh air. Once the weather cools I will be able to transition this dress by adding a cardigan or blazer.

Happy Monday, I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable weekend. Hubby and I went to dinner at the Chesapeake Inn in Maryland to celebrate our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. The meal was delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant so we had a  nice evening as an old married couple sans our sons.

Today’s outfit is autumn-like in it’s coloring yet summer-like in it’s fabric and comfortable enough for today’s 87 degree weather.  The Octavia Thai Silk open-toe-pumps were on clearance for $12.97, and on the RocketDog website, they are listed for $59.95!
