The Best of Everlane for Fall 22

October 24, 2022

Everlane is THE place for modern basics, made sustainably. Some of my favorite high-quality and versatile wardrobe pieces are from Everlane.

I thought it would be fun to take a look at Everlane’s Fall 22 offerings. Here’s what I’m loving at Everlane this season!

 

 

 

Modern classics are the backbone of my closet, the pieces I reach for again and again!

What is the main ingredient in your wardrobe mix?  Let us know in the comments below!

Also on the blog lately, the fuzzy slipper/sandals that you’ll want to live in and styling my new zebra blouse for a coffee date.

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

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!

Boho Vibe with High-Waist Wide-Leg Jeans

August 11, 2022

This week I’m immersed in my back-to-school teacher life, but last week I was enjoying my last week of freedom with some quality girl time with Cathy of Bay Area Fashionista and this is what I wore.

High-waisted wide-leg jeans are so in right now that I wanted to try styling mine in a new way.  These are The Baggy Jean from Everlane, but I decided to crop them to an ankle length myself, which of course is really easy these days with the raw edge trend.

NYDJ for the Holidays!

November 24, 2021

I love dressing for the holidays!  But I seldom have an invitation that requires an evening dress.  Most of my events are pretty casual: family meet ups, lunch with friends, the teacher holiday get-together.  So this season I decided to pick out pieces that would look fabulous for these types of events and then after the holidays, I could wear each piece again and again.

Crisp White Shirt & Wide Leg Jeans

November 5, 2021

I’ve challenged myself to try to share more outfits with wardrobe staples that I’ve had in my closet, rather than just showing new things  … though let’s face it, that’s really fun too!

Everlane Rigid Slouch Jeans & Leather Loafers

October 24, 2021

This simple outfit is giving me all the 90s vibes!  I spent most of the 90s in mom jeans, turtlenecks, loafers, hoop earrings, and red lipstick!
