Mod Chic & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

May 28, 2015

Loving this new top from Showinbuy!  The bold geometric design and boxy fit make me think of a mod 1960s look. 

mod chic over 40

First I styled it dressy with a skirt (Kasper) and heels (Kohls).  I always love my red bag (London Fog) with black and white.

Then I thought, who am I trying to kid that I’ll be comfortable teaching all day in a skirt and high heels?  I changed to skinny jeans (Gap) and flats (Seychelles). I really liked both outfits. 

60s mod, mod look, style over 40
My favs from last week ….

Katherine Eldridge is looking chic and on point in this great ensemble.

I  never would’ve thought to put these pieces together, but how cool does Monika of Style is my Pudding look in this chic combo? Fabulous!

Happy 30th to Rachel of Garay Treasures!  Isn’t she looking totally adorable?

Link up, link back, visit, comment, and have a blast!

And hey, have you entered this giveaway yet?

Linking up!  Charming Friday! Passion 4 Fashion!
