Lynn Ritchie for Fall 2017 (& Link Up!)

August 10, 2017

Lynn Ritchie does it again this fall with another collection of sophisticated designs and bold prints.

cold shoulder top, slimming pants

Lynn Ritchie sent me this outfit to review. All opinions are all my own as always.

Cold Shoulder Mock Neck Tunic

This cold shoulder top is made of viscose and rayon stretch crepe, such a pretty fabric and the perfect weight for early fall.  It has a mock turtleneck with cold shoulder cut-outs that can easily be worn with a regular bra.  And the top is tunic length which is always versatile.

Mini Dart Slimming Pants

I don’t usually think of a print or pattern when I think of slimming pants, but I couldn’t say no to this cool graphic black, white, gray and red print. And they really are slimming!  Made of nylon, rayon, and spandex, they hold their shape and feel comfortable. And very best of all, they have a slimming panel in the tummy/muffin-top areas.  As I age and my body changes, this little trick is getting to be a favorite of mine!

Also Wearing

With my fab new Lynn Ritchie pieces, I’m wearing my funky new boots from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They’re sold out, but fingers crossed they come back in stock because … well duh, they’re fabulous!  (ETA: Back in stock!!) I’m also wearing Illesteva sunglasses, silver hoop earrings, and carrying an old red tote (love this pretty option).

Lynn Ritchie review, fall style for women over 40

Versatile Separates

As always, every piece of Lynn Ritchie clothing is high quality, well-made, and versatile.  I plan on wearing this tunic with other pants and skirts and even with some funky raw edge jeans.  And the pants can be worn with a casual t-shirt and loafers or dressed up for work with a blouse and jacket.

The Date Night Look

I thought it would be fun to wear these flattering print pants for a date night out, so I added an off-the-shoulder top and some strappy sandals (option), along with my Rebecca Minkoff cross-body bag.

For my pick from last week’s link up, I’m going with Susan of  High Heels in the Wilderness!

Not only does she look great, her “The Death of Skinny Jeans” blog post made me laugh out loud!


It’s been a super busy first week of school for this teacher, Dolls.  I’m really looking forward to relaxing a bit this weekend with a nice cup of coffee and checking out your latest posts!

    Fabulous pants! I love them with the cold shoulder top and the fabulous boots. And they look also fantastic with the OTS top and the strappy sandals.

    I hope your first week back went well! Have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

    You have an amazing sense of style which clearly shows in your choice of boots as well as the second “dressier” option for the pants. Thanks for sharing that genius and for hosting. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    This is such a fabulous look! I love those booties!

    You’ve certainly found some fab new pieces to see you into fall, dearest Dawn!! Those new patterned pants are way cool – is that a slit hem detail I spy? – while the tunic adds the perfect amount of edge thanks to those, ahem, “cold shoulders”. And don’t even get me started on the rockstar-worthy studded booties!! Of course the date night look is divine, too; I wish I could wear an off-the-shoulder top with your panache, ’cause it sure makes for a pretty picture!! P.S. How was your first week back in the classroom?? Here in Canada, school doesn’t start until after Labour Day…so I’ve still got a few weeks to go before the traffic chaos starts up again!! 😀

    I love this post and those booties are so cute for Fall. Just found your post through the ‘How I Wear My’ – I was obsessed with your cocoon dress! 🙂

    Hope your first week went well. Can’t believe it’s already back to school time. 🙂

    What a fun pair of slacks. You’ve inspired me to pull out my one pair of printed slacks. Oh wait! I have a camo pair as well. Two pairs. Two pairs of interesting pants in my closet. I should go wear them! 😉 Love the booties as well!! Thank you for hosting, Dawn Lucy.
