Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

It has finally happened, Winter is officially over and based upon the temps for the next few days so is Spring!  If you live in the MidAtlantic area you know that we went from the cold-in-the-low 50’s on Saturday to the hot-in-the-mid 80’s today, all I can say is “bring it on”!  I love the warmer temps, not intense heat but warm enough to wear only one layer of clothing and a wrap dress is perfect.  If you follow me on Instagram you know that I twisted my knee doing Zumba and haven’t been able to wear heels, needless to say, I’m not happy.  I did pose in them this morning but had to go straight to the flats to lessen the pain.

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday.  Today’s outfit is a dress that was previously worn in August, also on a Tuesday (here).  Transitioning it from summer to autumn by adding a faux leather jacket and peep toe shoes replaced with leather pumps.  The jacket was thrifted from Goodwill and the pumps are Carlos Santana, which I didn’t realize when I found them at The Salvation Army.  These pumps are classic, timeless and very comfortable.

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48) you know that I’m participating in #pinkfor31days, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are wearing pink nail polish for the month of October and I started with Revlon’s Fuchsia Fever.  I’ve lost 2 cousins and an aunt to this deadly disease and have 5 cousins who are breast cancer survivors.  A co-worker is now fighting her second bout after being in remission for over 10 years!  If  you are over 40 and haven’t scheduled your annual mammogram yet, please do so today, I’m scheduled for next week.

 

Have a fantabulous day and don’t forget to schedule your mammogram appointment – Smooches!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday, a day that we’ve never seen before nor will we ever see again so make the most of it!

Remember when I purchased this dress from Avon (here), well the miracle is, I had to exchange the large for a medium and it fits!  I can’t wait to order it in red for the holidays…may opt for a large if it’s after Thanksgiving!  This evening I am attending a Financial Seminar which was postponed from last week because of the tornado watch.  I wanted to wear something comfortable and wrinkle resistant to stand up for 12 hours and this definitely fits the bill.

Left the house at 8:00 am and won’t be returning until 9:00 pm – long day!

Have a fantabulous evening!

Today this morning it was brisk, bright and cloudless, eerily similar to the morning of 9.11.01

RIP to all those who were tragically lost on that day – our Angels forever

Day 2 of skirt week is completely thrift-free which for me is a feat!  In June, I purchased this Valerie Bertinelli skirt  (worn here) at Marshalls, I didn’t want to pay full price but I also didn’t want to wait for it to be marked down.  The top was either purchased at Marshalls, TJ Maxx or Ross, as they all have similar clothing items.

Wishing you a wonderful evening.

Last week I saw a post on the GoodwillDE Facebook page that featured items from their Kirkwood Highway store, I’ve never been to that location and wanted to check it out.  So on Friday I rode with Tayair to Newark where he  attended a picnic sponsored by The Community Connectors and then I drove to Goodwill (saving gas) to shop.  Malik returns to school on the 28th and I found him some new shirts and polos for $5.00 and $6.00 each.

On this trip I was only looking for fall and winter items because Goodwill is now selling their summer items at 50% every Tuesday.

100% Wool Argyle Sweater – $5.00

Short Sleeve Polo Shirts – $3.75 each

Perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Day at school

Sweater Vest which he likes to show off his muscular arms!! – $1.88

These 2 skirts made great additions to my fall wardrobe and I will wear them with tights and boots when the weather cools. – $6.00 each

This black mock neck sweater was a bit pricey at $8.00, but I liked the silver buckles across the front, I washed it in a lingerie bag on the hand wash cycle it came out perfectly.

These animal print pants was a last minute decision and I’m not sure if I will wear them, but if I do, it will be with a long sweater and boots -$3.75

.

Finally this sleeveless top is a transitional piece that I will wear now and then under a blazer in the fall and winter – $3.75

Thank Goodness It’s Tuesday – which is officially my Friday at least as far as work is concerned.  After today I will have the next 3 days off from work, no 3 hour daily commuting in rush hour traffic until Monday the 9th – oh happy day!

I plan on spending most of my staycation lounging poolside eating, drinking, and reading.  I’ll throw in a little housework, movie watching and napping to round things out – lol.

I hope you and yours have a fun-filled and safe 4th.

Unfortunately the poison ivy is spreading down my arm and I could not find the clear ointment. Today I am sporting a polka dot arm with my a polka dot dress – what a way to start the summer season!
