The Dream Pant & One Year Gray-aversary!

December 22, 2020

Hey Friends!  I know it’s only been a couple of weeks but I missed everyone and the blog already!  The break is just what I needed to focus on the end of the school semester, as well as just some self-care!  But I had to pop up to share some great pants and to celebrate my one year dye-free anniversary!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!

Winter Everlane Outfit

November 19, 2020

It’s finally looking and feeling like fall in California!  And even though it will be a quiet Thanksgiving, I’m still looking forward to it.  Actually, I’m especially looking forward to it!  It will be just the hubby and me and a smoked turkey we ordered.  And of course I’ll still want to wear something cute and cozy. I have three new pieces from Everlane that I’m LOVING and planning to wear for the special day (and many days after as well).

Ready for some holiday sparkle? Holiday parties might be via Zoom or Face Time this season and that’s just one more reason to bring the bling!  Make a statement with earrings or a necklace that glimmer through the internet!  Kendra Scott hooked me up with two hero pieces that bring all the glam to the party, these Jack Silver Statement Earrings and Jack Silver Multi Strand necklace!
