Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I trust you all had a nice weekend and were able to relax or do something fun and exciting or both!  I wasn’t able to clean out my closets but I did have a busy fun filled weekend which started with the honor of being chosen, “Top Blogger of the Week” by Sverve.  I was in a fantastic mood as I headed out leaving my men doing yard work which wasn’t what my sons had planned for their weekend.  While in town I stopped at my favorite lunch spot, The Java House Cafe where they were hosting a book signing by Christian author Richelle Rodgers.  Her book, Forever Growing A Journey of Trust is a motivational book on empowerment and growing your relationship with God.  Richelle is a retired Army Vet who remains very active in supporting other female vets and is currently working on a Women Veterans Leadership Awards Symposium to be held in DC this fall.

Today, The Java House Cafe hosted another book signing by author, Jacqueline Charmane, her 5th book, They Raped Me Once Over and Over Again, is a true story based on her life.  She spoke briefly about some of the heart breaking events in her life including the emotional and physical abuse by both her rapist and husband as well as the the kidnapping of her son. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to speak with each author after the events, purchased an autographed copy of the books, and took pictures which I will post later this week.

Today, was a bright and sunny day, a little cool but I had just purchased this Printed Cold Shoulder Dress from Avon and wanted to wear it to church.

It reminds me of a 70’s retro dress with the slit sleeves, do you remember Julie from The Mod Squad?

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday – on this the beginning of a new week I hope your day is going well.

Saturday was an eventful day but the most memorable event was the sunset that occurred around 4:45 pm, unfortunately I delayed and missed getting a few shots.  However, if you look closely at these pictures you can catch a glimpse of it over my shoulder in the far background.

ImageI was leaving to accompany my girlfriend who was going to Lewes, DE for a “Passion Party”  She is a consultant and asked if I could ride with her because of the distance.  Driving down wasn’t bad but coming back the fog was so thick it made for a slow return home.

Hello friends, I hope today, the beginning of your new week was a blessed one. I was tired this morning but vowed to get to church and thankfully I did. Service was good but it was “Harvey Day” so it was a bit more crowded and lasted a lot longer, ending at 2:00. I would have stayed for dinner but needed to go grocery shopping so I rushed home, changed clothes and headed to Costco and Safeway.

Traffic on 95 was horrendous, took the exit ramp into the mall only to realize that the traffic lights were out and all the stores in the mall and Costco were closing. We didn’t wait to find out why there was a power outage just quickly turned around and headed back south to Safeway.

I wore a sleeveless dress to church, thrifted from Goodwill covered with a 3/4 sleeve jacket that belonged to my grandmother (RIP Mama). My Mossimo heels from Target, clutch from DSW and “lap cover” scarf from Boscov’s.

After church it was still warm so I threw on a pair of shorts also thrifted from Goodwill, top from Walmart, loafers thrifted from Salvation Army and a belt from my closet.

I hope you have a fantabulous evening!

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!!

Sunny Sunday heading to the Shore…sike…heading to the grocery shore. I am no longer a shore or beach person as we call it here in Delaware. Driving for hours to lay on hot sand surrounded by a lot of people is no longer my cup of tea. Now if that beach is covered in white sand and deep blue water in the Carribbean I might change my mind…naw!

During my high school and college years I spent practically every weekend down at Rehoboth Beach, DE. My cousin Belinda and I would lay out from sun up to sun down covered in baby oil. My beloved Belinda is resting in heaven after being taken by Melenoma cancer at the age of 29, in 1993. To this day, just the thought of laying out in the sun with no protection all day on the beach is cause for major anxiety. I like to hang by the pool but now I am covered in a high SPF spray or lotion.
