Blue Bottle Coffee Meet Up

April 27, 2023

Not many things that I enjoy more than a yummy iced coffee and some quality girl time! I got to have both recently with Kim of Northern California Style.

Shop the Look:

My friendship with Kim predates the blogging years … actually predates a lot of things. We met during our college years when we both were “Cosmo Girls” (cosmetics sales people).  She’s one of those friends I can not see for awhile, but when we do get together, it’s like no time has passed at all!

Kim is not only a good old friend, but also an inspiration! Check out her blog, Northern California Style, for style tips, along with travel, decor, and entertaining.

For this little get together, I wore my favorite Ruti skirt. I always get compliments when I wear this unique piece and I can’t get over how comfortable and versatile it is.  I paired it with my Converse sneakers and a plain V-neck tee for a casual spring look. The denim jacket is also Ruti, and I love the mixed blue and black denim and the fact that it’s stretchy!  These statement earrings are from Kendra Scott and they could be my new obsession!  Oh and I added my Alexander Wang bucket bag, a splurge from years ago that I still absolutely adore!

Fun & Fashion,

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.

    I love your skirt. Would you mind saying what size you are wearing? I need a frame of reference to order it online. Thank you

      Sure! This skirt is size M/L and I’m usually a size 10/12. Hope that helps! I LOVE this skirt and get so many compliments when I wear it.
