A fall outfit you probably already own






Hey there.  It's gettin to be fall and all I can say is jeans, yes glorious jeans.  It's too hot here to wear jeans in the summer so I'm always happy when I get to start wearing them again.  I am going to be posting a lot more fashion stuff because I'm entering the 60+ fashion demographic and I couldn't be more excited. There is a freedom in getting older and I hope to embrace that. You've been warned:)









This outfit perfectly bridges summer and fall.  You can never go wrong with chambray, jeans and some wicker.












I personally think this outfit is timeless.  It'd look fab on an 8 year old or an 80 year old.   In case you are in need of this classic outfit here's how to get the look...

  2. Like Leslie, I am so thrilled that you post more frequently and diversely. I think I've already enthused about that but saying it multiple times isn't a bad thing.
    And I agree with you on both counts, it's great to be in jeans again and yes, there is a new freedom and vigour about dressing to please no one but yourself when you hit 60+. Heavens knows what will happen to me when I hit 70!! Hugs, x.

  6. Love this look! I wouldn't have thought to put the two denim looks together. But now I will! Going to look for chambray shirt. Classic
    And comfortable.

  7. Looks great on you! I just got a chambray shirt from Madewell's summer sale which I bought in a larger size so I can layer it over T's and tie it in front. I've been wearing it with khakis and maxi skirts, now looking forward to pairing it with my jeans when the cooler weather returns to the Northeast coast.

  9. Love that you are posting more! Yes there is some freedom in what to wear over 60, as I am too. I have decided some things I'll never wear again, like jeans - I just don't find them comfortable. Look forward to getting some more ideas from you.

  11. I can't tell you how happy I am to hear the age range you recommend for wearing jeans. They are my go to pants for running errands or anything casual. But I recently read that no one over 55 should wear them. I will be 72 in November, & I will never give them up...but it did cause me to think perhaps I should. Thank you for validating each of us & thank you for being such a cute role model.

    1. oh i hate those types of rules! i believe we get to do what we want and whatever makes us happy! x

  12. what? they're still pulling that old stuff???
    you have to give it up if you're over " 55 " or whatever?
    if it's done tastefully why do we have to give anything up?
    that's for the birds. as time gets shorter it should be MORE fun and less rules!
    even given that I tend to be classic and bland probably.
    it's maybe why I enjoy the daring people out there. :)

    1. Thank you Tammy! I agree, but that did get in my head. I have a "boy" figure, so I've always felt the most comfortable in jeans. I, too, tend toward classic & bland...denim, linen & lots of neutrals with a pop of color once in a while.

  13. We're the same age, Janet, but I would never guess it if I didn't know. You look great! I've always loved chambray shirts. Some things are just classics. I add my voice to those who are grateful that you are posting more!

  15. You (always) look fabulous! Thanks for posting the chambray and jeans together. I have always loved the look of this combo, but remember reading once about avoiding denim on top and bottom (it was called a Canadian tuxedo). Your post has given me permission to wear this again because it always felt right to me :)

  17. I have to admit I never gave up my Martha denim shirts with jeans. I've been in the 60 group for 4 years. It's funny I don't know that my style is all that different than when I was young. I don't mean I dress too young for my age I just kind of go with modern classics. Ralph Lauren white shirt and jeans. I have ventured into hats! They're so fun! Put on a hat and sunglasses and it just brightens your mood. You ALWAYS look fabulous!!!

  23. I am getting close to 70 and will never give up my jeans. I think it is essential to buy jeans that are a good fit and don't stretch out. Check out your butt in the mirror, the pocket placement and the amount of lycra can make all the difference. I also love the colored jeans, especially black. They are so great for travel. Don't listen to anyone who tells you that you can't wear jeans later in life. They probably dress like an old lady!
