Chambray Shirt, Floral Midi, Snake Booties

April 28, 2020

Dressing up for … nothing at all.  But some days it really lifts my spirits and that’s hey, that’s not nothing!

outfit ideas for spring for women over 50


Shop this look:

I was super excited when I found this Topshop skirt (currently on sale) since black and white goes with everything in my wardrobe, and I loved the length, and the fact that there was no slit.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not totally against the slit, but I find a lot of cute midi skirts have such a high and revealing slit!  But anyway, this one was perfect and I was looking forward to wearing it for teaching, for weekends, and for date nights as well.   Of course, all plans changed with the Covid crisis and I haven’t worn the skirt as much as I had planned. But I still love it and am still looking for reasons to wear it. And I’m looking forward to wearing it in the summer and into the fall!

I had planned other footwear with this look, but I loved the snake booties with the floral skirt.  I feel like the snake added a bit of edge to the look, which is something I always love.  And every wardrobe needs a chambray shirt, and probably both a short sleeve and a long sleeve one. What do you think?

So, I hope maybe this gives you an outfit idea for this week, Ladies: take one floral skirt, add a chambray shirt, and some booties with an edge! And even if you’re only going into the living room, enjoy wearing it anyway!

Hope you’re all healthy and well and staying sane!  I have to admit that the beautiful spring weather has me restless, but other than that, I’m hanging in there!
