Urban Combat

January 9, 2020

I’m the last person you would ever find hunting, and I can’t ever image myself in the military, but give me some camouflage pants and combat boots and I feel ready to be chic in the urban jungle!

The sweatshirt you might remember from this post.  It’s from the fabulous and eco-friendly I Love Retail Therapy

If you’ve been around here awhile, you know I’ve been blathering on about these pants for over a year!  Because as a pear shape with generous hips and thighs, print pants aren’t always the best choice for me. However, these camo pants with just the right amount of stretch and the subtle camo pattern are super flattering. So much so that I bought a second pair!  Now on sale for $30!

The boots are Ash and are sold out.  If you’re looking to add a combat boots to your wardrobe that will be versatile enough to wear for years, you really can’t go wrong with classic Docs.

The pretty new filigree hoop earrings were a Xmas gift (thanks, Lynn!) and I’ve been wearing them  every couple of days.

ICYMI, here’s my blog post about our Rock Star weekend in LA, along with my gray hair journey (so far)!

Fun & Fashion,

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.
