Tie-Dye Midi & Edgy Sweatshirt

November 5, 2019

Loving the outfit I’m wearing here … so many of my favorites in one outfit: a cool edgy and comfortable sweatshirt, an A-line midi skirt (tie-dye to boot!) … speaking of boots, my new Ash combat boots … a big tote and add a floppy hat and it’s a fabulous chic and wearable fall outfit!

The Pieces

The Sweatshirt

This super cool and unique top is the Evelyn Crop Top Black Turtleneck by Tina Givens from I Love Retail Therapy (c/o), a fabulously chic boutique in Lansing, Michigan.  As my readers know, I love supporting unique designers and I’ve been moving toward more sustainable and ethical fashion.  I’m really starting to pick and choose my items more carefully and I have a feeling that I’ll be wearing this top A LOT!  I love the heavy and soft high quality fabric and the luxury construction.  The unusual shape and lines will turn heads.  Do yourself a favor and check out the artisan crafted fashion at I Love Retail Therapy.

The Skirt 

The Love, Fire Tie-dye Midi Skirt is easy to wear.  I’m liking the neutral tie-dye for fall.  My one complaint is that the skirt feels very thin, more like a summer skirt.

The Boots

My Ash Razor Combat Boots from Neiman Marcus Last Call get another spin with this outfit.  Loving this trend … anything that looks cool and edgy AND is comfortable is a thumbs up in my book.

The Hat

I’ve had this hat for so many years that I don’t even remember where I got it, but I like this one from Macy’s.

The Bag

My favorite bag that I use ALL the time, the Botkier Soho Leather Tote!

The Sunglasses

The sunglasses were my fun little cheap Amazon find. You might remember them from this outfit.

Also on the blog lately: the Ruti Fashion Show, 

Anne Klein Ventura Snake Sandals,  and Chunky Skechers Sneakers for Fall.

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.
