Fashion Over Fifty: Faux Leather and Animal Prints

Hello!  I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.  I know I certainly did!  This year my 51st birthday fell on Thanksgiving Day and I was doubly blessed!  My husband and children surprised me with a beautiful birthday banner, flowers and presents when I woke up, and we had a wonderful meal together.  I am so thankful for the wonderful family the Lord has given me.  And I also want to thank everyone who did not shop on Thanksgiving Day and spent the Holiday with their family and in thankfulness, not greed, as it was created to be.  We are seeing a trend in retail where stores are opening earlier and earlier, and I fear the holiday will soon be a distant memory if this trend continues.  The only way to stop it is to pledge NOT TO SHOP on Thanksgiving Day.

Now for this week's Fashion Over Fifty post,  which is a neutral outfit of different shades of creams and browns, and lots of texture.  For my outerwear I wore a dark brown faux leather jacket by Guess and a cream colored chunky knit infinity scarf from Forever 21.
 I love scarves!  They not only provide the extra warmth I always seem to need, but they are my favorite fashion accessory as well.
 I found this pretty chiffon animal print shirt at Express just a few weeks ago.  I love it because it's loose fitting, so it hides all of my ever expanding midsection.  The tan pants are also from Express.
 For jewelry I wore a chunky gold chain necklace and some gold and black bangles.

 My footwear is a simple brown pair of pumps that I have had for years.  They have a very nice open trim detail on the top.
Have a great day!  Amy


  1. That chunky scarf is perfection! I've been wearing one of those every day this week. You just can't go wrong with animal print.

  2. Oh great ! Love clothes with animal print ! The scarf is superb, you're superb !

  3. You look fabulous Amy. Especially love that loose fitting animal prints shirt! Sadly about the holidays, I think the crowds spoke, and they will continue to start black friday on Thanksgiving. I know I woudn't shop on that day. Can't even bring myself to shop at all black friday weekend.
