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!

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.

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!

This weekend I had such a fun time at the blogger event at the Pala Resort and Casino in Southern California!  There will be a post all about that, but in the meantime, let’s talk outfits …

I’m loving this cool henna-inspired pattern on this pretty maxi dress!

Dress and earrings were given to me by Chico’s, bag, shoes and sunglasses were given to me by Soft Surroundings … all opinions are my own as always.

Tie-Dye Maxi Dress with Pockets!

June 4, 2017

Summer time dressing … easy breezy, cool and relaxed.  But it can be a challenge too. We want to look pulled together and most of us don’t want to show as much skin as we used to. A comfy maxi dress is one fab choice!

Resort Wear Over 40 – Souvenirs

March 5, 2017

Part of the fun of vacation is shopping for souvenirs, at least it is for me (I think my husband might disagree).  In the past, I’ve brought home my share of clothing and jewelry that I never end up wearing, so I’ve learned the hard way what to buy and what to pass by.
