Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘pants

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!  You know the days when you put on your clothes and something just doesn’t fit right, or in my case fits too tightly, well that was how my morning started.  As you know on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week but today it was a “pull from the closet” morning.  I put on and then changed 3 skirts, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of capris and 2 tops because none of them fit right…all too tight!! Not enough “labor” over the holiday, too many Michelobs and Seagrams so now it’s back to the elliptical with a vengeance and summer indulgences are a distant memory!!

After all those changes this is what I ended up wearing, an outfit that is color blocked with my Sorority colors Royal Blue and Gold, (ΣΓΡ ~ Sigma Gamma Rho), and hubby’s Fraternity colors Purple and Gold, (ΩΨΦ ~ Omega Psi Phi).

Top – Goodwill// Skirt – Old Navy// Belt – Rainbow Shops// Wedges – Marshalls

Bangles (separated ) by a large bracelet – Rainbow Shops// White Stone Ring – Avon // Earrings – Samsbeauty.com

I think I hid those extra pounds nicely!!

My co-worker knows that I love thrifting, she and I have even gone to Goodwill together during a lunch break.  She knows there is no shame in my game when it comes to thrifting clothes especially for my sons.  Last week she had a bag of clothes in her car that her son had outgrown, and asked if I wanted them.  I could sense she was a little hesitant with the offer because she followed up with,  “if you can’t use them, you can donate them to Goodwill”.   Of course, I said, “yes”.  Later in the day she put the bag into my car so I didn’t see the contents until I got home that evening.  This bag contained some great stuff for my son who will be starting back to school next week!

The shopping bag was filled with shirts, pants, shorts and jeans, all in excellent condition and smelling freshly laundered.  The name brand items included Old Navy, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, JC Penney’s and The Gap.  My sons were thrilled with the haul and each went through the items designating which ones they wanted.  The pants fit nicely around the waist, but hubby will need to alter the length because my co-worker’s son stands 6 ‘ 8″, taller than anyone in my house!   This was my first FREE thrifted haul ever!!!

Run don’t walk to Boscov’s for their latest “DoorBuster” deals!!!  One of the many featured items are ladies maxi and knee length dresses for $19.99,  and the selection is huge!!  Also featured are select Preswick & Moore Separates for $6.99 each, this collection is versatile and is perfect for the workplace.  There’s a large selection of  summer shoes and sandals on sale as well as racks and racks of clearance merchandise marked 50-75% off.  I purposely did not get a cart and could have spent all afternoon shopping but chose to use restraint and purchased only a few items which I will post later.  On my way home I may stop at the Boscov’s in the Concord Mall but I prefer Exton because they have such nice cashiers, especially Edwin.  This definitely was a great way to start the weekend and I hope you are having a wonderful FRI-YAY!!

I purchased this hi-low dress to wear to dinner in celebration of our 22nd Wedding Anniversary tomorrow

Here it is in pink

Definitely can be worn into the fall

Really nice asymmetrical design

So many colors and styles

I love this color combination

Can you believe it – $6.99 for these skirts, pants, blouses

and cardigans!

Thursday is the horizon to the weekend…it’s all downhill from here.  Today is gloomy and overcast after last evening’s showers and thunderstorms that broke the heatwave.  My goal this week was to wear a dress a day and barring any major downpours tomorrow I will have succeeded.  I remember when girls/women only wore dresses and in Junior High I would hide pants under my skirts because my grandmother didn’t allow us to wear them.   My sister and I had a job at Arthur Treachers Fish & Chips and we had to ask permission from our Pastor to wear the uniform because it had pants.  Now here it is 37 years later and I prefer to wear dresses on the daily and hubby seems to enjoy it as well (side eye wink wink).

This Polka Dot dress was featured in my June post, here, but I decided to mix the polka dots with my green, patterned wedges from Ross.

 

WEEKEND IS COMING!
