We’re finally getting a bit of fall weather here in San Jose, off and on anyway!  I was excited to pull out some fall favorites and play with rich fall colors and textures in this outfit for a morning coffee with my buddy Lynn and a day of teaching.

Navy & Black

April 4, 2023

It’s always fun to break the fashion rules that most of us grew up with. If you’re my age or older, you grew up learning to never mix navy and black. Of course now the navy and black combination is not only okay, but it actually looks quite chic!

Basic Cardigans for Fall/Winter

November 14, 2022

Cardigans aren’t usually hero pieces. They don’t catch our eye and let’s face it, they’re not too sexy!  BUT, I love cardigans and wear them ALL the time!  They are cozy, comfortable, and an easy way to layer.  I was looking for some wardrobe staple cardigans to put on my Santa list and thought you might enjoy taking a look as well.

Which do you like best?  I still haven’t sent Santa my pick yet because they are so many good ones available right now!

Also on the blog lately, a way to style a riding vest for fall, along with my top choices of boots for the season.

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 our 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!
