Sometimes simple really is best!

 Shop the Look:

For a Starbucks run and errands with the hubby, I wore this simple summer outfit that I could live in. These black gauze pants and slouchy tee make a great basic look and I could walk all day in these versatile Tiana sandals from Jambu. I added some fun statement earrings for a little pizazz!

What summer basics are must-haves for you?  For me, I need to have comfy lightweight pants, jeans, a white V-neck tee, a black tank, a cute sundress, a straw carry-everything tote, and sandals that I can just slip on and walk in all day long.

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.

    Hi, great outfit. What sizes are you wearing? So hard to figure out Everlane sizing , especially, without a frame of reference. Love your bog

      I’m wearing an Everlane M in the tee. They run true to size. I’m usually about an 8 on top and a 10/12 on the bottom. Medium tops fit great.
