New Year – New Basics

January 5, 2023

Starting the year off with an outfit full of basics I can live in!

What I Wearing

This soft and well-made Sanctuary cardigan was a Christmas present that I asked for.  It’s just the perfect basic cardigan!

The jeans were an after Christmas sale find at Nordstrom.  They’re Kut from the Kloth, a jean brand that I fell in love with this year when I purchased these jeans (sold out). This pair is so flattering and has lots of stretch. I got them in tall and they are perfect with heels, but too long for other shoes.  I’ll think about what I need the most and maybe cut them off myself. I love that about the raw hem trend. We can all chop our jeans to the perfect length at home with scissors!

The turtleneck is a classic from Everlane.  Also wearing these fun green boots that I’ve had for years, but I linked this similar pair here.

The fabulous bag is my Strathberry tote.  I LOVE this bag so much.  Strathberry is having some awesome sales, so if you were thinking of treating yourself to a heritage bag, this might be the time to do it!



These jeans are curvy girl/big butt approved!! 😉

Have you hit any after Christmas sales yet?  It’s a great time to pick up some fab pieces for less!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women 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. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including 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.
