It’s the start of something new and fun here on the Style Sisters…
FASHION FRIDAY’S for 50 something’s!
Since this blog is called The Style Sisters I figured why not share fashion too. I enjoy fashion but it can be frustrating to try to find clothes that are cute, modest and affordable and even if I do find all three of those things it still may not look so great on a 50 something gal…anybody else know what I am talking about? I’m going to be very honest… I have a round belly mixed with some lovely back fat and I am extremely short waisted so certain styles draw attention to those areas. I could end up looking like a round bellied Steve Urkel from Family Matters if I am not careful LOL .
First off I love COLOR I always have…it makes me feel happy. Here is a purple, turqoise, green and pink patterned sweater I found on clearance at Target and I paired it with a pink silky tank top from Banana Republic outlet that I found a few years ago..I love the combination! I left the bottom buttons unbuttoned to let the pink tank show thru and to help camoflouge the belly area. You can see the button is pulling a bit 🙁 but I am working out to loose a few inches..wish me luck.
I have very short hair so I like to wear dangling earrings….in fact when I got all ready my husband looked at me and said…”You have on your big winter boots and your blingy earrings??” I said “yes…that’s what all the winter mountain women are wearing these days” hehehe Really I just wanted to have some fun! Life is too short not to wear a little bling… Don’t you agree?
Here is the whole outfit…complete with granny glasses…anybody else’s eyes gone bad fast??? Sheesh I can’t take it! I had to laugh watching my sister who is almost 12 years younger than I am do the trombone move to try and read something…LOL that made feel better…I am not alone!
Well there you have it…my first Fashion Friday! I would love to know some of your secrets for camouflaging your problem areas so please leave a comment and share.
PS I will have better pics in the future…I am not so great at taking selfies..yet…LOL.
