Style For Women Over 50: It’s Child’s Play

Is there anything more special than spending the day with your grandchildren? Not for me. I still want to look stylish, even if we’re only going to the playground.

It’s been too long since I visited with my favorite fellow. Way too long! I’m excited to be heading there tomorrow and will have him all to myself! I wonder if I’ll spoil him 🙂

Playing at the park

My grandson will be 3 in October. He’s bright, inquisitive and very energetic. Oh sure, we spend time coloring, reading and doing puzzles, but for the most part, we’re on the go.

Just because I’m spending time with a 2 1/2 -year old, doesn’t mean I don’t take the time to ensure I look polished.

Denim jacket and jeans at the park

A hat is a must-have for me. Similar here. He loves to run off steam at the park where shade is rare.

Leopard flats and a hat add fun to simple jeans

A scarf, simple leopard flats, and bracelet take plain jeans up a notch. I add cushioned insoles for comfort while chasing him around.

I like how this scarf connects the pale wash of my denim jacket with the dark wash jeans. Since I’m wearing a scarf, I skipped adding a necklace.

Looking modern and stylish is key, being practical and comfortable is a must!

In case you missed my exciting news last week… I’ve been featured in Chico’s blog, here! I’d love you to pop over and leave me a comment there.

    your darling grandson is sweet and of course you will spoil him!

    I love your comment on the other site about getting comfy shoes that don’t look like they are for a gnome. Funny and true

      I’m always on the hunt for those shoes. They really don’t have to look hideous…it’s just a challenge to weed out the ugly ones.

    Love your look….lucky you that you’re not having miserably hot weather. We’re in the 90s so scarves, jewelry and enclosed shoes take a backseat in this weather. Grands are the best….we are blessed with six…six months to 11 years old and what a blessing. Thanks for your blog and love the dressing room diaries. Great idea and very brave of you…although you always look great. ????

    I wouldn’t have thought about adding a scarf to a jean jacket. I like the effect very much!
