Between the Lines: Week 2 and My Casual Vibe

Be sure to read to the bottom of this post for week two of the Between the Lines Series on women bloggers over 50.

Over the weekend I packed up a bunch of bags and headed down to my daughter's apartment to do a quickie photo shoot. I stopped at my younger daughter's first to get my make up done, then drove another 25 minutes to connect up with the other daughter. This was the outfit I wore that day, as we were going to go to lunch and a movie after the shoot.

I love my jeans. They are my go to for casual and even sometimes for dressy. These are Rock and Republic brand from Kohl's. They are now my faves. They are more expensive, by my thrift store spending standards, but they are worth it. The tee shirt is older and probably from Kohl's as well and so is the cardi. I like the fly away style of the cardi and it is the perfect weight for spring and summer. You can't see my necklace real well, but it is a long silver chain with a teal colored stone hanging on the end. Once again, I'm in my comfy, but sparkly Keds.

I wanted to show a dressier way to wear jeans, so I put this Vera Wang dress over the top. This was a last minute thought, so I would have dressed it up with other jewelry and maybe a pair of heels. I wore my sparkly thong sandals that I got last year. I also would have added a bag and maybe a shrug or scarf with white or purple to tie in with the flowers on the dress.

This was a last minute idea, so I'm not sure how I feel about it. What do you think? Jeans with a dress? Who knows maybe I'll start a new trend. I can remember when I was in elementary school my mother always wanted me to wear dresses to school, even through our Buffalo, NY winters. But, she would let me wear pants underneath to ride the bus or to go out for recess. You never know the pants with dress trend may come back. Ha, ha.
