Fashion Over Fifty: Wearing All White?

I wore an all-white outfit (well, it was all-white except for the shoes, and until I took my coat off) when I was in Boulder last month.  And I believe other than my wedding day, it was the first time in my life I wore all-white.  I'm not sure my husband liked it, because he kept asking me when I was going to take my coat off so he could get some color in the photographs.  I said, "When it warms up!", but eventually I just unzipped the coat, and un-tucked my shirt to appease him.  "See!  Here's the color!"

 The Colorado sun's intense rays kept me in my white hat from JCP all day.  The coat and cross-body bag are from Wilson's Leather, the skinny jeans are by a.n.a (JCP), and the navy blue shoes are from Payless.
 I was excited to see a Free People store on Pearl St.  I have only seen their clothes on their website and I subscribe to their blog, so it was fun to actually be able to see and touch their clothes in person.  Although I love their style, I didn't buy anything because they are a bit above my price range.  This is the type of company I get ideas from, then go look somewhere else for something similar:  like Francesca's, or Forever 21.
 Well now the temps have warmed up so you can see what is under my jacket.  Just a striped shirt by Stylus (JCP), and a lime tank.  For jewelry I wore a white broken shell necklace and a white beaded bracelet.
 I usually don't like pictures where blogger's look down at the sidewalk, so I thought it was funny to see this shot in my collection.  The sun was just so intense I couldn't look at the camera for long.  I just think it's an odd way to pose, I mean, what is so interesting about a sidewalk that one would be intensely looking at it?
So what about you?  Have you ever worn all-white before?

Have a great day!  Amy

  1. You pull off the all-white look perfectly Amy. I have definitely worn all-white before and loved it. Love this whole white look (even without seeing the striped shirt underneath it). I do like that you kept the flats black though. That jacket is beautiful and the fun hat looks lovely on you. =)

    Enjoy the weekend! Ada. =)

  2. Wearing all white is such a chic look. You look fabulous. I also love that stripped blouse you had under the jacket - great colors!

  7. Hi Amy, you look again very nice all in white. But I want to be honest to you, I prefer white or blue shoes instead the black. The head is Great!

  8. Thanks Ageeth, but the shoes are navy blue. They just appear black in the picture.
