Remixing some Fall Favs

October 22, 2020

There’s nothing here that you haven’t seen, Dear Readers, but I remixed some fall basics into this new look.

If you’ve been around here awhile, you’ve seen this plaid blazer a million times, and these wide leg jeans at least ten times!  I started this outfit thinking that the wide leg jeans might look cute with my new Jambu knee-high boots.  I was inspired by remembering wearing knee-high boots with my culottes as a little girl in the 70’s. Do you like it? I do! I added a basic gray turtleneck and my new special bag and Kendra Scott earrings and voila … new fall outfit.


fall outfit idea for women over 50


How are you dressing this fall, Ladies? I’d LOVE to know what kinds of outfits you all are wanting to see these days. Are you going into work, working from home. or retired? Are you going out and about or hunkering down at home? I know it’s different for everyone, depending where you are, your health and your risk tolerance level.  No judgment, just curious.  Most of you know I’m a bit of a nervous Nelly, so we’ve been careful. Even so, we go out for errands, coffee runs, to get take out, walks around the neighborhood, and little day trips … I’m spending a lot of time in athleisure and comfy cozy clothes, but I ‘m going out enough to want some more put together looks as well.  Let me know in the comments if you feel like sharing!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    My husband and I are Retired and we are enjoying time at home with our grandson, so I spend a lot of time in stretch pants and t-shirts. Any chance I get I like to dress in something casual but put together. I admired your camo pants and finally ordered them and I love them!! I also like your edgy style!

      Hi Sandy,

      Thanks so much for answering! I honestly can’t wait to be retired!! I love comfy clothes and even when I put myself together, I really like comfort! 😀 I’m glad you love the camo pants! I actually bought a second pair because I love them so much! Ha!

    Great styling !! Love it !! I like the idea of the cropped pants with boots. I was going to pack mine away for the season already. It’s to cold here to wear them with bare legs.
