Hello! For this week's Fashion Over Fifty Post I have a fun scarf to show you that brings some color to an otherwise bland outfit.
Have you ever gone shopping and you were just drawn to something that was a little unusual for you, but you just had to have it? This pink zebra scarf was it for me. I was shopping at Charming Charlies in Wheaton, Illinois and I saw this scarf on clearance. I immediately admired it, but I thought it was just too 'different' for someone over fifty to wear, so I immediately dismissed it. But as I kept shopping at the store, I couldn't stop thinking about that scarf; I really liked it, and it was a great price! Then I saw a 'young' sales associate wearing it; and she was dressed very 'goth'-like, and I really admired it on her, but again, I thought, 'I'm too old for that scarf; it's obviously a hipper/trendier scarf for the younger generation'. Finally, I just thought 'Amy, your being ridiculous. You love the scarf, BUY IT!' So I did, and I am so happy I did because it went perfectly with the outfit I have on below. My outfit would have been so conservative and color-less if I didn't have this fun scarf on. It not only adds some much needed color, but it 'relaxes' an other wise 'stuffy' ensemble.
Please ignore my giant hands in the picture below. I assure you, my hands are not that big in real life. Something about the camera angle made my hands appear super large! So funny.
I wore a metallic faux leather silvery/white jacket that my dear husband bought me for my birthday last year as my outerwear.Ann Taylor. I wore a simple white tank underneath to keep from getting too bulky and warm. I added a slim black belt to my waist to help give me more of a figure. The cross body bag is from J.C. Penny (similar), and my only jewelry is a black and white bangle.
(similar), that have a fun buckle on top. My husband thought that it was so funny that I wanted a picture of my feet taken on top of the mossy rocks. I said 'I love moss! It's pretty and it will make an interesting back drop.'
Have a great day! Amy
