It’s always hard to dress when the calendar says fall, your heart says fall, but the weather says summer! This was my dilemma dressing for a lunch with the fabulous Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista.

I decided to wear some fall pieces, like these green croc boots, but then I had to resort to a white tee and a sleeveless vest to stay weather-appropriate. This old Gap vest is getting a lot of wear right now. I’m so glad I never got rid of it! Utility vests and jackets are in style so don’t forget to see what you have in your closet before you go shopping. If you don’t have a utility vest or jacket, I would suggest adding one to your collection. It’s a classic that never goes out of style and comes really INTO style again and again. I added my fab fall Strathberry bag as well! The jeans were a Marshalls find. I like the look, though if I had to style it over again, I would’ve added a belt.
I apologize for the grainy photos. I just used my iphone, but usually they look better than this. Next time, back to my camera, promise!

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!
