Janis Joplin

April 16, 2019

To be honest, I didn’t plan on making a blog post about this outfit, but I had so many DMs about my Janis Joplin tee that I thought I’d go ahead and do an outfit post!

Years ago somewhere along the way, probably in a used bookstore, I picked up a biography about Janis Joplin and found her fascinating. I don’t pretend to be a super fan or an expert, but I do feel an affinity to anything that revolves around Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco in the late 60’s. I was born there in 1966. My parents weren’t hippies, being a little older and not so into youth culture, but somehow something in the air must’ve seeped into my collective consciousness because I’ve always loved the music and message.

Which is just a really wordy way of saying, I think Janis Joplin is cool and I liked this t-shirt!

Along with the retro rock tee, I’m wearing I’m Frame cropped flare jeans, Kendra Scott earrings, and a crochet cardigan and Mephisto sandals that I’ve had for years. I’ve had a million (okay okay, maybe 7) requests to link this straw bag, but it’s from several seasons ago. I will link some cute options though for sure.

When my husband and I decided to go to San Francisco for the day, I switched from sandals to booties and a warmer cardi. It was a gorgeous spring day, but always a little cooler in SF than in San Jose.

Also on the blog lately, a review of the Sands Hotel Spa and a few more cute spring looks (Silver Sandals, My Fav New Blouse, Classic Chic.)

And if you’re tired of the California vibe, you might just love my next outfit … very New York city chic! Stay posted .. and as always thanks for coming along on my fashion journey with me!

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 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!
