Fuchsia Sweater & Black Straight Leg Jeans

July 16, 2019

Okay Friends, I know it’s super frustrating that the exact Nordstrom Anniversary Sale top and jeans in my last post were all sold out.  (Fingers crossed for restocking!).

As of right this minute, THIS fabulous sweater and cool pair of straight leg jeans are still available!  And I’m loving them both!

Topshop Oversize V-Neck Sweater

A fabulous chunky shaker knit, V-neck, short length (but not cropped … no belly showing!). I’m wearing this pretty fuchsia (they call it Purple) and it’s also available in Oatmeal, a great fall neutral. True to size for an oversized look, but size down if you want more of a fitted look.

Topshop High Waist Spilt Hem Straight Leg Jeans 

Super versatile and cool faded black jeans.  Way more flattering than I expected them to be.  If you’re between sizes, definitely size up.  I’m wearing a US 6.  These are pear-shaped approved!  (I don’t say that about just any pair of jeans.)

I’m keeping this super simple and short today. Seriously I feel like if I take my time writing this post, by time I post it these items will be sold out.  LOL.

In case you missed it, be sure to check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dressing Room Diaries … the photos are bad, the lighting is hideous … BUT you get the full scoop on how things look, feel, and fit IRL!

No Nordstrom card? Don’t forget you can shop starting Friday!

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!

    You are totally rocking with this outfit. I love the addition of a v-neck sweater with jeans. This look is perfect for work and day out. I got some great ideas from your article. I can’t wait to try this style. Thanks for sharing. https://www.hancockssignetrings.com/signet-rings/cushion/18ct-yellow-gold-cushion-signet-ring
