Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope your day is going well and that it is productive and stress-free.  I overdid it with the outdoor activities and today I am paying the price, both my mind and body are tired!  Maintaining a pool is hard work and the older I get the less enjoyable it is.  Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy lounging poolside but the Spring setup takes a lot of time, just vacuuming takes over an hour.  I also have to do some comparison shopping for a new solar cover, think I’ll start with Daily Deal Superstore.

Today’s outfit is a mix of heavy and light because the temps were not expected to rise until later in the day.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

After a wonderfully warm weekend the temperatures have reversed course and fallen back into Autumn, dropping down into the 30’s and 40’s!  Yesterday I was in shorts preparing for the pool opening and today I am wearing fall clothing – this is crazy.  The forecast calls for 80 degrees by Thursday so  we will be going from sweaters to sleeveless tanks in less than a week, I don’t remember Spring temps being up and down like this – do you?

Beyonce lending voice to GW

Beyonce is Lending Her Voice for GOOD – WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-.

If you haven’t heard the news – “Lady B” aka Beyonce Knowles-Carter aka “Blue Ivy’s mommy” is lending her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work.  “Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives,” said Beyonce.

Beyonce is encouraging fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts beginning on Friday, June 28, at the Staples Center in LA. There will be a mobile donation centers onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The monies received from the the sales will benefit Goodwill agencies in their work to help people with disabilities and disadvantages, and anyone facing challenges to finding employment.

As you know, my sister before her untimely death was employed by Goodwill which is why I am such a big supporter of them.  I must admit that I am not a fan of Beyonce’s music but am definitely a fan of this endeavor.

What are your thoughts?

Monday Mingling with Tough Cookie Mommy – come on over and join the fun!

Hello friends and Happy Monday before Thanksgiving 2012!

Weekends seem to fly by and this one was no exception especially since I spent most of yesterday washing and pressing all of my thrifted Goodwill goodies.  Sometimes I wonder how a silk blouse or cute skirt could have been donated but then I think about all the items I’ve donated over the years and say, “yep, it was too small, too big or my closet is just too full!”

I simply adore these shoes and am amazed that I found them in blue as well – jackpot!

Black skirt was previously thrifted from Goodwill in Exton, PA and the belt was purchased back in the ’80’s

HAVE A FANTABULOUS AFTERNOON – SMOOCHES!

 

Let the countdown begin!

 

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.  I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend with a chance to relax.  If you follow me on Instagram or Foursquare you know that I spent mine cleaning out desk drawers, shopping at Costco, Walmart and upgrading my Blackberry to a Smartphone at Radio Shack.  This morning I spent way too much time trying to decide on a belt and eventually settled on one that I’ve had since college, sometimes it pays to keep things.

Remember when I purchased the the pencil skirt and top from Target (here).  The shoes and cami were purchased at Ross.
