So I’ve decided to call of you fabulous friends out there….MY TRIBE! Yes, that’s what I’m calling you from now on! There was a quote I ran across the other day from another feed (posted on Instagram) that goes like this……..
Huge BIG LOVE to my TRIBE!
It just struck me because this blog has truly become my support. All of my friends (tribe) here really do give me a reason some days. I’m not even kidding. My best friends have come in to my life, through Chic Over 50!!!! Life can get so challenging at times! Through this blog I feel needed, I feel I have a voice, and I feel VALUED. I don’t feel those things in many arenas in my life, so THANK YOU!
Now….on to FASHION! Do you feel this time of year like you have to hurry and wear your summer stuff before it’s fall? There’s huge sales right now, for new fall merchandise as well as stores clearing out their summer goods to make room for new. I realize it’s only mid-July, but it’s everywhere….the excitement for “cool-weather” fashion is on! And I would tell you that IF you’re buying, buy things that will work in to fall. Would you say THIS outfit does? How would you take it in to fall? I think it totally can be styled a different way, and both top and bottom can be considered “transition” pieces!
I would wear the top with a long cardigan sweater or with some sort of jean jacket or leather bomber over the top. Or you could wear the top with some heavy tweed pants! The polkadot pants I would wear with a thick loose weave sweater, and booties! Have you noticed how many WHITE shoes and booties are everywhere right now, and styled for fall? These pants would be SO CUTE with white booties! Pick a pinkish sweater in the same hue as the pants for a monochromatic look and that would look beautiful for fall! My exact look here is completely sold out (so sorry), but I’ve linked similar looks below!
Anyway “TRIBE”….have a great weekend, and remember all the fab sales going on! Anthropologie is offering a 20% discount through the weekend. Chicos has a great one as well….I’ve shopped there too! And the Nordstrom sale is alive and well! Great value on SO MANY THINGS! Take advantage!
