THE AGELESS STYLE LINKUP

Hi, welcome to the Ageless Style Linkup. The linkup runs the first Tuesday of each month and features 10 women over the age of 40 styling an outfit based on one theme, and, because we’re all so different, each theme interpretation is different. Each month, one of the co-hosts invites a guest co-host to join us for the linkup. Our goal is to show you that style is ageless…

This month’s theme is: “Flower Power” and was chosen by me. I chose this theme because I’ve been seeing dark florals everywhere and I’m loving it {although I have seen some folks say some of the patterns look suspiciously like Grandma’s sofa from the seventies}. I don’t care.

MY LOOK

I know people say they hate Walmart, but lemme tell you, they’re really stepping up their clothing game. I found this sweet little top there and had to scoop it up. I like the details:

  • the barely there ruffled neckline
  • the embroidery along the wrists
  • the delicate lace trim

It’s all so good. And, since it’s olive, it can be worn with anything.

About a month ago, I came home from my first library conference declaring that I needed a backpack. So I asked my Facebook friends to help me pick one out. A few them had great suggestions, but then a couple of friends suggested I go with a tote instead. So I researched several and chose this zip top tote by Madewell. I’m still trying it out to see if it works for me or not, so be prepared for a review.

I’m a big fan of Old Navy’s Pixie Pants. They’re the only pants that fit me no matter what my weight fluctuations. And the patterns are so whimsical. When I first saw these dark floral Pixie Pants, I wasn’t sure what I’d wear them with, but I knew I had to have them. While I like them with this top, I think they’d also work with a mustard cardigan or a pretty pink pullover. And a black turtleneck with a leopard pump would be smashing, don’t you think?

Do you wear florals? I’d love to know how you plan to style this trend for the fall.
