green is a neutral

green is a neutral

well, gang, it’s time to roll up my sleeves and get back to work. putting structure back into my life is part of the healing process and helps me deal with my loss. work is the greatest therapy. it keeps me busy, keeps me going and keeps me growing. there are so many good things to share with you in the coming months! many of which mr. style’s guiding hand put into motion which warms my heart and puts a smile on my face.

i wanted to take a moment and say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the love, thoughts, and prayers you’ve showered my family with the past few days. for the past several years there have been many discussions about the negative impact social media has had on society. what with cyberbullying, fomo (fear of missing out), and device addiction. but all of YOU have shown a positive and uplifting side of social media. and i thank you for that. thank you for following along with me on this journey called life. thank you for being there. and many of you will be pleased to know my youngest son is now the steady hand behind the camera. family is everything!

green is a neutral

today’s ootd harkens back to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. yes, this mammoth sale is still going strong. all the way through august 5th. this green skirt and striped tee were purchased on my dressing room diaries excursion with my daughter-in-law, kelly. if you missed that post you can read it here. i’m a big fan of having at least one green skirt and pant in my closet. why? because green is a neutral. honestly, it goes with just about everything. and this skirt will easily transition from summer to fall with ease.

today, i’m wearing a simple striped tee with a classic bateau neck, green cargo skirt, gold accessories and sandals. but in the video down below, i switched the gold accessories to brown and wore ballet flats to give you an example of how easy it is to transform your outfit with the aid of accessories. the Patricia Nash handbag (old, similar here and here) available at Macy’s and Dillard’s is the same in both photos and video.

many of you have written asking for affordable beauty products. and i’m listening. two weeks ago i shared a few of my must-have beauty items from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. read that post here. but Walmart has so many affordable goodies that i thought i’d add a few to today’s post.

Olay Regenerist is one of the best moisturizers i’ve used. but Olay offers more than just moisturizers. try their detoxifying facial scrub for a deep clean. or their cleansing infusion facial cleanser for everyday use. Neutrogena is a solid beauty brand that i trust. i couldn’t live without Neutrogena Cleansing Wipes. but i’m eager to try their Sheer Lip Smooch available in four shades. of course, i’m going for the wink and wave‘cuz it’s pink! Cetaphil can’t be beaten when it comes to sensitive skin. try their cleanser and lotion for a one-two punch. for a daily body lotion, i use Cetaphil Daily Hydration Lotion

i’ve had good luck with e.l.f Cosmetics. i religiously clean my makeup brushes with e.l.f. daily brush cleanser. if you are looking for an affordable brush set e.l.f. offers an 8 piece brush set for $17. now that’s a bargain! Revlon is a brand that harkens back to my youth. and i still love them just as much today. i can always count on Revlon for affordable lipsticks. one of my favorites is Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. but i also like their Colorburst Balm Stain. if you like pink then try sweetheart. don’t forget Revlon has affordable foundations too. try Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect or Revlon Age Defying Firming Lifting Makeup. last but not least, don’t leave home without mascara. and i’ve used Revlon Volumizing Mascara for years. it works!

now for some real fun! today, we’re introducing a new feature on the blog and YouTube. it’s called fashion flash. it’s a short sixty-second video that shows today’s ootd in motion! they say a picture’s worth a thousand words but a video is worth even more. let me know what you think.

makeup in the video: Dior Forever foundation, Nars Orgasm blush, Marc Jacobs glow stick. eye makeup: Urban Decay Rockstar, Urban Decay Backfire, Urban Decay Rockstar 24/7 glide-on eye pencil, Two Faced Better than Sex Mascara, Benefits 4.5 brow pencil. lipstick: Chanel La Fascinate.

happy wednesday, gang! time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.

    Welcome back, Beth!

    Another good drugstore body lotion: Curel hydrotherapy. I dislike body lotion, as it feels sticky & hot to me. This is the 1st lotion I’ve found that isn’t. You apply it in the shower and it practically disappears. No hot, sticky feeling.

    Welcome back…and thanks go out to your son for stepping up to do your photos. I remember when you first started your blog the horror your sons expressed at the quality of the photos, immediately going out and buying Mr. Style a lovely new quality digital camera. Well the son(s) now get to use that wonderful technology and I am sure Mr. Style is beaming. Green…though a neutral, just does not do it for me. But for many, I agree, it should be a staple.

    Posted 7.31.19
  32. I found work to be so helpful when I lost my Mom — especially work that could be done behind the scenes. So sweet that your son is now serving as your photographer — his Dad would be so thrilled I am sure. May the peace of God comfort you in the coming weeks and months as you navigate your new normal.

Today would be his birthday, and it’s hard to know we won’t be celebrating it together. There’s a large hole in my heart because we were married 53 years. I am grateful for my daughter, her husband, my son and two grandchildren as well as a network of friends who are providing prayer support, encouragement and kindness. Everything is overwhelming right now, and I will miss Alan for a long, long time.

    Cutie, don’t overdo it- see to yourself and accept all the love that comes your way.
    I know there is no comparison to your loss but I miss MrStyle. Isn’t the internet a crazy thing- someone you’ve never met and mainly just read about now and again leaves a big hole in life.

    Your hair is awesome today.

    Dear Beth, I am glad you are back but do take your time and do not push yourself. I love your new haircut and the olive green. I just received a long olive green sweater that I will find olive green pants to go with. A little something to have when the weather gets nippy. Love fall clothes. Take care sweet lady. May God bless you and give you peace.

    I hope your busy schedule will help you as you gradually move into your “new normal.” I’ve thought of you all the last few days and hope you are coping all right. It takes time, and it’s definitely a process. You look great–no one who didn’t know you would know you’re grieving and aching inside, but it’s difficult, we all know… How good of your son to pick up the mantle from here.

    I have green eyes, so I’ve always here and there liked kind of “sagey” greens in tops/pants/skirts, scarves, etc. I agree–this shade makes for a great and season-spanning neutral.

    Take good care, and good to have you back. Oh, and the video is terrific–I like online stores (such as Everlane) that use quick videos–it helps one see how clothing moves on a person, etc. Good for you, always changing and improving. Sending virtual hugs to your gang…

    Ahh, the green skirt sold out before I got one; however, I went to Talbots and purchased a similar bluejeans skirt.

    Your son did an amazing job of managing the lighting and photographing your segment, The video clip and setting are awesome; like how you included the movement of the fountain as well. And it let me know that yes, I could wear a skirt with a slit in the front like the one you modeled.

    Thanks for giving me a smile! I’m all dressed up and off to see Lion King with my daughter!

    It is so good to see you back here again! I can not imagine how difficult the last weeks and months must have been for you and your family. You are so lucky to have such a close knit family to share your grief and memories with. Unfortunately life does not stop even when we would like it to, so getting back to a routine and normalcy after a loss is good for the spirit. Your beauty, clothing, lifestyle and travel tips help us all so much and are so appreciated. It is not easy at A Certain Age to have visuals of appropriate clothing and make up to inspire us and you do it impeccably. Thank you so much for being here for us and I know I speak for all of the gals who follow you that we are so glad to be here for you too! I am so sorry for you loss and so impressed with your courage!

    My favorite drug store finds: Aveeno Skin Relief Hand Cream: Intense Moisture and Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Soap in the eucalyptus formula…it is gentle on the skin and makes my shower smell like a spa.
