Madewell High-Waisted Wide-Leg Jeans! (& Link Up!)

May 18, 2017

When Nordstrom had triple-point rewards at the beginning of the month, I wanted to treat myself to something a little different, so I thought I’d try this new high-waist wide-leg cropped silhouette! Well, I use the term “new” loosely of course … more of a 70’s throwback, right?

Groovy Kimono, Wearing Boho Over 40

April 30, 2017

This kimono!  OMG. Loving it.  I told my husband it looks like 70’s upholstery.  He said, “yes … you say that like it’s a good thing.”  Ha … It’s a fabulous thing!  So fun!  Several women asked me where I got it.  I guess I’m not the only one who likes putting some groovy into her wardrobe!

The Fab 40’s in White Lace

June 23, 2015
The Fab 40’s are at it again … this time around looking sweet and summery in the white lace trend. 

Here’s my take on it …

the fab 40s in white lace

When Dixie picked white lace for the theme this month, I knew I had to revive this outfit (also worn here).  It’s my perfect lacy summery look!  This time I added gold weave wedge sandals, a pretty wrap bracelet, and even curled my hard to curl hair to give it a bit more of a romantic look.
