If you are looking for the Ageless Style Link Up I regret to inform you that the ladies in the group decided to call it quits. I was not part of that decision and I was extremely disappointed the ladies did not want to do it anymore. I feel way too many link ups are ending and the reasons for them ending just make no sense at all to me. I was so excited to join the group, and I think I only participated in three challenges, and suddenly after years, they want to fold. It made me wonder "Was it me?". Oh well. I'd start my own link up but I always struggled with the link up codes. I just don't have the technical skills. But if there is any other over-40 fashion link up group that's wants a new blogger....I'm free!
I will be honest, ever since Covid, my fashion days came to an end. Because everything seems to be cancelled, other than grocery shopping and hiking, I mostly seem to be wearing activewear. I have not purchased one new piece of clothing in six months other than a $25.00 dress for a wedding and lots of face masks/neck gaiters. Since our activities are so limited now, my husband and I have been doing a lot of outdoor activities. I did have to buy new activewear when we had a sudden cold spell hit Wisconsin and got dumped with a record breaking six inches of snow. Due to this unexpected cold, I had to find activewear to keep me toasty warm while hiking. I tried Under Armour Cold Gear and just loved it! I hope to do an active wear fashion post soon.
In the meantime, I wanted to show you an outfit I wore to the Wisconsin Dells and a Dells Boat Tour the next day.
The evening before our boat ride it was a gorgeous, sunny, warm 65 degrees. We walked around the downtown Dells area and took these beautiful pictures as the sun set. It was so romantic.
I always check the weather and it was supposed to be warm all weekend, so I only brought this one outfit plus my active wear. Well, to our surprise (and everyone else's in the Dells area) the next day the temperatures never got out of the 40's so I was very ill-prepared for a Dells Boat tour.
On the sunny, warm day before the boat tour I was able to just wear a rust tee with a camel cardigan. The bottoms are jean leggings from Stitch Fix, and I wore camel booties on my feet. The camel infinity scarf is actually a neck gaiter to meet Covid restrictions. I am not one of those people who is terrified of getting Covid. I believe in the sovereignty of God and what will happen will happen. I trust Him for my protection and if He chooses to allow me to get the disease, I trust that is His will. For me, the neck gaiters work the best. I can wear it as a scarf around my neck, and they are easy peasy to pull up when I need to enter a building. So I have collected a lot of them, and when Covid ends, I can still use them as infinity scarves.
This is one of my favorite cardigans. I love thin knits that don't add a lot of bulk to my frame. The color works with so many of my outfits and I like the length.
As I said earlier, everything in this outfit is old as I'm not buying new clothes during Covid but I will link to something similar at the end of the post.
Because the next morning was so cold, I had to amend my outfit slightly. What I really needed was a parka, but unfortunately I didn't bring one. So to stay a little warmer I put my black activewear jacket on underneath my cardigan. It's so thin, it fit without looking bulky. Thankfully, I did have the foresight to bring a blanket scarf so I threw that over my shoulders. Scarves are such great additions when traveling. Always bring a scarf when you travel...they can be lifesavers if the weather changes suddenly, and they take up such little space in your luggage. In this picture, I left the scarf untied, but the wind from the boat kept blowing it off, so I eventually tied it in a knot in front as you will see in the next picture.
I'm still loving my brown hobo bag that was a present from my son. It's so big and roomy and the brown color is so fashionable right now.
Here is what the scarf looked like from the back. Yea, I know, you're probably all wondering what I'm looking at. But you'll have to wait till my next travel post to find out!

Have A Great Day! Amy
