Mixing Warm & Cool Tones

December 1, 2022

I love rich fall colors, like rust, caramel, and pumpkin!  But with pink undertones in my skin and ash tones in my hair, cooler colors look better on me.  Adding a charcoal gray turtleneck (one of my best colors) to this outfit makes it work for me, I think!

Gift Ideas for HIM

 

Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me 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. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, 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!

Rock Black Friday!

November 24, 2022

I added some rocker edge to my casual Thanksgiving weekend look, with my band tee, studded boots, and this cool edgy denim jacket.  Now read on for tips on how to ROCK Black Friday this year!

Shop the Look:

Shopping Tips

1.You no longer need to go shopping in person to get all the deals and you don’t need to wait until “Cyber Monday” to shop.  Ninety percent of the deals are online starting on Thanksgiving Day!

2.Don’t buy it just because it’s on sale. A good price on something you don’t really want will never be a good deal.

3.Comparison shop. If you have your eye on something that will be available several places, be sure to check the price on all the sites. Sometimes it’s surprising where the  lowest price actually shows up!

4.If you really want it, GRAB it!  Things do sell out. And if it does get further reduced many places will do a price adjustment for you if you ask nicely.

The BEST of Black Friday Sales!

Camel Cardigan & Striped Top

November 17, 2022

There’s something about the color camel that just makes me think of a luxe fall outfit!  Recently I saw a camel coat paired with a black and white stripe sweater and it just looked so chic that I had to try a little version of it myself.

Basic Cardigans for Fall/Winter

November 14, 2022

Cardigans aren’t usually hero pieces. They don’t catch our eye and let’s face it, they’re not too sexy!  BUT, I love cardigans and wear them ALL the time!  They are cozy, comfortable, and an easy way to layer.  I was looking for some wardrobe staple cardigans to put on my Santa list and thought you might enjoy taking a look as well.

Which do you like best?  I still haven’t sent Santa my pick yet because they are so many good ones available right now!

Also on the blog lately, a way to style a riding vest for fall, along with my top choices of boots for the season.

When I picked out this Banana Republic Riding Vest, I pictured it with a turtleneck and wide leg jeans. Now that the weather is finally cooling off, here is the look.  It gives me Charlie’s Angels vibes for some reason!
