1. lose belly fat over 50 with FASTer Way to Fat Loss 

for the past fifty years, we’ve been told to cut calories and exercise more. right?! wrong. while exercise is key to staying active our diet is the most important factor to aging well.

if you want to lose belly fat over 50 there are a few things to consider. first, balance your macros. many of you might be wondering what macros are. they’re better known as carbohydrates, protein, and fat.

2. wide leg jean’s  | what’s on trend for fall

i have been shopping at Banana Republic for all things fall.   it’s been a minute since i’ve purchased anything from this iconic retailer that was a favorite of mine all through the nineties and into the twenty-first century. but in recent years Banana has been hit or miss for me.  but recently i went on a spree.

this shopping spree proved to be a success with several items landing in my shopping cart.  i’m sharing wide-leg jeans that are on-trend for fall. if you are looking to update your wardrobe in a jiff, look no further than an updated pair of blue jeans.

it’s an easy and inexpensive way to look modern and chic because we all know a great pair of denim will take you anywhere in style. personally, i’m loving wide-leg jeans and the high-waist. it’s a refreshing change from the skinny or straight jean.

4. first call for fall with Talbots 

it’s first call for fall with one of my favorite brands – Talbots. and let me be the first to say i wanted “one of everything, please,” from their new catalog. 

first call for fall with Talbots

while checks are on-trend this season and i chose a gorgeous check blazer with a muted color palette. there’s something to be said about a tried and true staple. like a pair of indigo navy pants that will serve me well season after season.

Talbots spoke to thousands of women and discovered that despite a closetful of options, women only wear the same six pairs of pants. again. and again. and i know why!

‘cuz when you find pants that fit you well you will buy them in every color under the sun. nine-in-10 (90%) women said that when buying a pair of pants, they care the most about comfort. and i quite agree!  read the entire post here to see why.

    Beth – I love love love almost everything you wear – i look forward to all of your posts. I’ve printed out many of your outfits and have them hanging on a bulletin board in my walk-in closet as inspiration when I get dressed! But oh how I dislike those bell bottom jeans (LOL)! I lived in them as a teen/young adult and I can’t imagine buying them now at 70+. Keep up the great work – you are awesome.
