happy wednesday, gang! we’re easing into spring step by step, even if April throws a few snow showers your way. hangeth thou in there! spring always arrives sooner or later, sometimes much later, depending on your geographical location.
today, i wanted to thank you for all of the lovely comments and love you send my way. truly, i have the best readership EVER! as hard as i try, a comment or two slips through the cracks and remains unanswered. but please know how much your support means to me. this blog continues to be dedicated to aging with grace, strength, and beauty. even though the clock is ticking in our lives, it hasn’t expired. more than ever, over fifty women are interested in staying modern, fresh, and relevant. it isn’t always about looking as young as we can for as long as we can. living life to the fullest is being the best version of ourselves, wrinkles and all. we’re interested in exercise, healthy recipes, beauty, makeup, skincare, redefining and reorganizing our empty nests, travel, work, and just plain figuring out the next chapter or two of our lives. am i right?! ladies, Style at a Certain Age is here for you because style encompasses so much more than putting an outfit together. true style is the embodiment of how we live our lives each and every day.
today’s ootd is all about spring stripes! what would spring be without a stripe or two? once i spied this adorable striped shirt from Anthropologie, i knew it was coming home with me. this shirt is casual chic at its best. from the different combinations of stripes to the relaxed fit and the special attention to details like buttons on the sides, this shirt is destined to get lots of action all spring and summer. this striped shirt will look terrific with jeans or shorts, but today it’s paired with white chinos from Talbots (old, similar here). last week the temps were in the 80s, which meant it was time to slip into sandals. metallic sandals are always sitting in my closet as they act as neutrals. when in doubt, gold or silver shoes will come to your rescue! once summer arrives, i love to wear gold, whether it’s a pair of gold sandals from Banana Republic (old, similar here and here), gold bangles, or gold earrings. one of my favorite color combos is gold and orange! it’s a match made in heaven. so i couldn’t resist grabbing my orange tote from Mark and Graham to add a hint of summery fun to this outfit.
