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.

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!

Vancouver & Secret Cove – What I Wore

July 8, 2022

Just got back from a very fun vacation! First we went to Vancouver, Canada and explored the beautiful city. We loved all the cool architecture (from classic to modern) and the huge mountains on the horzion! Lots to do in Vancouver: we checked out the lovely harbor to watch the boats, Stanley Park for a bit of nature, Robson Street for shopping, and Gastown for some history.

Here is one of my favorite travel outfits that I wore to explore Granville Island, a cute place for restaurants, shops, and a pretty harbor.

This is what I wore for a day of sightseeing in the city. I don’t usually think of wearing skirts when I travel, but a flowy skirt with sneakers, a tee and a denim jacket is actually a totally practical and comfy look for a day of exploring!

A few snaps from Vancouver!

After our “interesting” trip to Eleuthra Bahamas last summer, we were so grateful to just enjoy a wonderful vacation, with a nice balance of activity and rest and a nice balance of city and nature!

Where are you off to this summer? What will you be wearing? Let us know in the comments!

Also on the blog lately, comfortable sandals and a summer kimono with statement earrings.

March 10, 2022

Hi Dear Readers …

The outfit I had planned to share this week has been delayed in the mail, so I thought for something different I would just share some random outfit snaps from the last couple of weeks.  I’m starting off with this new dress I just purchased on Amazon.

Isn’t it cute for teaching?  True to size, nice material, and a price you can’t beat.  (I’m 5’7″ and wearing a Medium).

Winter Uniform & Curvy Jeans Review

January 14, 2022

Do you have a go-to look that you reach for again and again? For me that has to be bootcut jeans with a black turtleneck sweater.  I think it’s flattering on me and it’s warm.  It pretty much goes anywhere!

When things are busy or I’m just not feeling experimental, I turn to this look again and again.
