Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘wedge sandals

Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?

Then do what I do, think of  your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?

Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue,  just sing quietly and chair dance!

This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.

Sundress – C.o.C.o Brown & The Phat Cat Players

Summertime – Will Smith

Under The Boardwalk – The Drifters

Celebration – Kool & The Gang

Hot Hot Hot – Buster Poindexter

Heatwave – Martha & The Vandellas

Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress.  This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.

Today is my “YAY-DAY” because tomorrow I’m off for a stay-ca-day to start the long Labor Day holiday weekend.  Today’s outfit is layered like the leaves on the lawn …. don’t go summer…please stay a wee bit longer (wiping away tears).  Not ready to put away the summer wear so I covered this spaghetti strap maxi with a front zip vest thrifted from Goodwill,  accented with a red belt from Ross.  Popping more of the red with earrings inherited from my lil sis who passed away in 1992, a bracelet from MizOutlet.com and covered one stone in my ring with red nail polish.  The polish is easily removed for a change of color to accent another outfit.  I thought about wearing red shoes but decided on these black and white stripped wedges from Marshalls.

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 Thursday, I hope your day is positive and productive.  Today is less stressful now that I am back in my own cubicle after only an hour and half commute which always starts with a prayer for safe travels.

The outfit of the day is a 70’s throwback, wide leg pants and wedge sandals which I wore in Junior High School.  The pants were purchased in May (here) and the sandals in June (here), but the patterns compliment each other – I love when that happens!  The mix of jewelry includes wood, glass, plastic, stone and metal another throwback to the fashions of the 60’s and 70’s.  Purse was purchased from TJ Maxx and is just large enough to carry all my daily essentials without being too bulky.  I wish my figure was a throwback to the 70’s, then perhaps the belt purchased from Goodwill would fit a little less snug!

I am giving my son a reprieve this week and have enlisted hubby to take my pics – unfortunately he is not as good but I’d never say that to him.  Instead I will set up the tripod that I purchased on Saturday and learn to use the  timer on my camera!!!

He did a little better on Saturday afternoon, I guess he’s not a morning photographer!

Today’s outfit of the day features a skirt hubby gave me last year for Eid al-Fitr, which is the Islamic holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan. In addition to this Kimono Skirt he also ordered for me a few other skirts and tunics from EastEssence.com all of which I love. This white, cotton, wrap skirt is very flattering and the hand-stitched embellishment, piping around the pockets and buttons really enhances the look. This is a large which is my normal size and it falls loosely over the hips and is not binding, I would have worn my shirt tucked in as shown on the website but you can see my underwear so I decided against it – hubby agreed!

Wrap Skirt – EastEssence.com// Top – closet staple// Bracelets – Burlington Coat Factory// Ring – Jewelrymax.net// Earrings – Fashion Bug// Watch – Avon// Wedge Sandals – Ross

At work – skirt has two side pockets

No not me…the necklace, even though I do feel chunky after having birthday cake and beer over the weekend.  Today I decided to wear this chunky necklace that I purchased from Avon months ago but never wore.  To my surprise I think it works well with this plain, white, scooped-neck shirt – what do you think?

oops, it got a little twisted…
