Ageless Style Linkup: Keeping Cool in the Summer Heat

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: “Keeping Cool in the Summer Heat” and was chosen by Kellyann of This Blonde’s Shopping Bag. The guest co-host, also selected by Kellyann, is Cheryl from Northwest Mountain Living & Style.

MY LOOK

I wore this outfit to a going away dinner for The Hubs. We were at an outside bar and grill, so I wanted to wear something light and cool but kind of dressy as well. And I wanted to wear something out of my comfort zone.

Off-the-shoulder is definitely not a style that I wear often {although I do have a cute Laurie Felt top that I can’t wait to wear in an OTS style} because I have the absolute worst posture and I think OTS emphasizes it. I am working on it, but after years of slouching, it’s almost painful to rectify.

Anyway, I chose to wear a pair of light washed cuffed skinny jeans to keep things casual. I also think light wash just screams cool {on a whole lotta levels}.

And then there are the sandals…

Are these not the sexiest shoes ever? I also have the boot version, which you can see here. Can you tell I have a thing for back details?
