What I'm Wearing This Summer/ Fashion Over 50

I'll be honest with you. I'm over 50 - way over.
It's hard to know what to wear. I don't want to dress like a teen but I don't want to dress frumpy either.
I've been saving a few summer outfit photos to show you.
Let me know what you are wearing in the comment section below.

The bag is the Multicolor Lodge P.M. by Louis Vuitton.
It is an older discontinued line. I'd always loved it but couldn't afford it new.
I've updated the style by adding a cross body strap.
The sandals are by Italian Shoemakers.
I actually bought them last summer but never wore them.

I've nearly worn them out this summer.
You can find similar shoes at DSW.

Blue jeans and a black tee shirt are a staple outfit for a cooler summer day.

I got this embroidered shirt out in East Texas at an outlet and I wore it to go eat for Bill's birthday.
I wore it with some Walmart jeggings.
The bag is a very vintage Christian Dior bag that I found it in an antique mall in East Texas.
I always dig through piles of old purses hoping to find a treasure.
The gold sandals are a few seasons old. The backs have the cutest chain detail.

I haven't really been wearing shorts this summer.
Little swing dresses have been my summer staple.

This sleeveless black one was a Walmart find. It is so comfortable.
It was under $15.00.

A black swing dress by Soprano came from Nordstrom Rack.
I love this one so much that I went and got another one.
It's been my "go to" staple for a quick dinner out or for errands on a hot day.

That is one of my favorite tips - buy multiples of a favorite item so that when one wears out, you have another in reserve.

It's great with leggings too.
I plan on wearing this outfit in France when we go next month.

I wore this dark chambray dress to church yesterday.
It also came from Walmart.

I'm not really a belt type of girl because I haven't had a waist since I was a teenager.
I cut the belt loops off of it which is another good tip for you.
The waist on a dress may not be in a flattering spot for your body type.

The little Gucci mini bag is another oldie. It was one of my first designer bag purchases off of eBay.
The Navy blue shoes are Ralph Lauren.
He makes some good and cute shoes. These were from DSW.
DSW or Nordstrom Rack are my favorite places to find shoes.

That's about it for me.
I'll be back later in the week with a trailer update and some late summer decorating.
Have a wonderful day.

I might be linking to these fun parties.

  6. I'm also way over 50! My "go to" this summer has been a pull-on jeans skirt (Macy's) and a rayon blend T. The one I wore yesterday is from Target. I liked the fabric---I love good fabric!--so much that I bought it in black and in white. My other summer favorite is a swing dress similar to yours. It also came from Macy's and I'm considering buying it in another color. Maybe I'll just get another black one instead! I seldom wear jeans or leggings in the summer--too hot! I's wearing a tunic and capri-length leggings today to take my husband to the Dr. I like to be stylish but age-appropriate and definitely not frumpy! I recently wore a dress from last summer that made me feel "old" so it's going in the give-away bag!
