And just like that, it’s Monday! How was your weekend? For the first time in weeks, I had a light schedule to finally regroup and recharge. There’s nothing better than a little me time to charge my batteries. I had a massage, went to Orange Theory, watered my plants, and filled the bird feeders. I even squeezed in a date… Yep, this 65-year-old is back in the dating world with all of its highs and lows. And speaking of dating, have you seen the new reality show Golden Bachelor? The star of the show is 71-year-old Gerry, who hails from Indiana. All of the bachelorettes range in age from 60 to 75. Wow! It’s never too late to find love, although finding it on a reality show might be challenging. I actually interviewed for the show, speaking to the associate producer and producer in two separate interviews. Ultimately, I decided a reality show wasn’t up my alley and politely bowed out. But I hosted a Golden Bachelor premier party at home with a few of my besties on hand. It was unanimous that I made the right decision as none of us could envision me alongside the Bachelorettes. So today, I have a recap of our Golden Bachelor watch party.

Per usual, I have white and red wine on hand for my guests and a few appetizers. I like to keep things simple because the whole point of a get-together is spending time with friends. Right?! Give me any excuse to throw a soiree as I love, love, love my friends and family. And since this was a low-key affair, I chose a comfy yet cute outfit from Haven Well Within. A lavender mockneck sweater (lavender sold out similar here and here) and matching pintuck joggers fit the bill and I added a pair of metallic ballet flats.
Style tip: metallics act as a neutral. Whenever you’re stumped for footwear metallics are a simple solution.
Let me know if you’re watching the Golden Bachelor and who you’re rooting for! I’m happy to see that men and women of a certain age are starting to make an impact. And why not? We’re just getting started.
