Happy Friday ladies. It is not an understatement to say that yesterday’s comments brought me to tears. Sort of sloppy, almost blubbering tears. I can’t tell you how very thankful I am for all of you. Thank you so much for being here. Together, we have made this a supportive community that I am so proud of. I feel truly blessed.
Kevin and I have a grand total of 1, holiday party to attend this year. Yippee! Knowing me, I will pull out something to wear that I’ve had for years that’s velvet, perhaps subtly sparkly, or potentially fuzzy. For Thanksgiving, I’ll be sitting around a lot, wearing an apron, and eating more than I intend to, so comfort will be the name of the game.
I found this tunic at J. Jill last week and am impressed that it’s embroidered rather than stamped. I appreciate that kind of quality because so many brands are cutting corners these days. It comes in misses, petite, womens, and tall. I’m wearing a regular in small. I opted for regular over the petite because I hate having my backside show in leggings 🙂 In fact, I wrote a whole post about The Modern Way To Wear Leggings over 50 here.
I love that these leggings have a “tuxedo stripe” of faux leather running down the side. These kinds of stripes down the side of pants and leggings are very slimming. Plus, this touch of vegan leather updates the look without feeling as warm as solid faux leather leggings. Faux leather doesn’t “breathe” so they can be hot when you’re cooking all day:)
These come in sizes XS-XL in misses, petite, women, and tall. I am wearing a regular in small so they run true to size. Leggings can be tricky, but when I stick to good-quality ponte fabric, I am always happy with their look. The necklace was my mom’s, and the earrings were a Christmas gift from my daughter Vanessa, which you see me wear. All. The. Time. The booties are old, similar here.
These booties aren’t super similar, but I just found and ordered them because they come in narrow, medium, and wide with a lower, more comfy heel than mine:) The older I get the less happy my feet are so I jump on shoes that are comfortable, and Rockports are great:)
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
