The other day I got a comment on one of my social platforms from a woman who was not happy at all that I had posted a few items that were pictures from a website of young models. She thought since I was representing the 50+ year old women, that all my pictures should be that. But what she didn’t understand was that I don’t go out and buy everything I’m posting, but I DO post things that I would wear as an almost 58 year old. I never post anything that I wouldn’t wear myself. And these particular things that I had posted were really great pieces to transition in to spring fashion. They were on sale, and I thought a great price point and fun to have in your closet this time of year.
So, that being said…..I think camo can be one of those prints that women my age would steer away from, because they might think it looks too young, too trendy, or too hip. If you’re my age, what do you think? Do you think it’s TOO YOUNG looking? If anything, I think it can make someone older look very hip and with it, in a really up-to-date way! Remember that the way you may or may not pull off a trend, is how YOU STYLE IT! I LOVE camo and think it’s such a fun print to mix up with stripes and florals, OR wear just as is with denim, or any neutral. I’ve worn mine here with a feminine lace top! I LOVE the contrast between the two, a great juxtaposition! All of these white lacy tops I’m seeing a lot of lately, are MY FAVORITE thing right now! If I were in the market for just ONE thing, it would be one of these girly tops!!!
Linked here for you are some fun camo and lace options with some FABULOUS shoes too!!!

Maybe, maybe the lady who challenged you was just having a bad day! Pay no attention to the naysayers, Shauna! Rock on!
Hi Annie! A DollBaby…….my grandma used to call me Shauna Babydoll! Thank you for such a SWEET comment!!! XO
Shauna, You have inspired me to go and buy a nice camo t-shirt. I am also almost 58. I find myself stopping to look at clothing that has the camo print on it. I love it.
Hi Becky! Did you find some camo yet??? Thanks for stopping by! XO
68 and love my Chico’s camo ankle pants. So many options…can dress up or down. My pants were styled with a green metallic-ish eyelash poncho which has been super cute for Fall and Winter. As mentioned above, we are definitely NOT yesterday’s grandma!! 😉
Love the look! IS the lace top from Chicos?
