 Blazer Tunic Faux Leather Leggings {living outside the stacks}


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: “Accessories” and was chosen by Lisa from Coast to Coast.  Scroll to the bottom of the post to meet our guest cohost, Jo-Lynn, from Everyday Style for the Modern Woman. Then make sure you visit my cohosts to see how they styled this oh so romantic color.

Y’all, this week has been a doozy. I participated in my first Dragon Boat Race on Saturday and my arms and sides are still sore. I told everyone on Instagram that I’d share a post about the event and – I promise – I will. I think I’ll do a little video, since I need to practice my video editing skills. So stay tuned for that…

Up until a few years ago, my favorite accessory was a pair of gold hoop earrings. I wore them with everything and then I saw a pair of Nickel and Suede Leather Earring on Instagram and was like “Yes, please!” I just totally fell for them because they’re so funky and versatile. I mean, they can go either boho or edgy, depending upon the color and the texture. So far, I have about 9 pairs. I generally buy the earring of the month because it’s a little bit cheaper at $18 versus the regular price of $22.

Recently, I was asked if I’d ever wear leather leggings to work. My answer was a resounding yes! Because I have. In fact, I wore this very outfit. During the day, I kept the blazer on, but for running errands after work, I went without…

I’ve wanted a pair of faux leather leggings for-ever. But I didn’t want a pair that looked chintzy. I mean, I’m a big girl, so I had to make sure whatever pair I bought had some heft to them. So after 2 YEARS of hemming and hawing, I finally bit the bullet and bought a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings. Yes, they’re expensive, but they are so worth it. I was worried about them showing “stuff” or thinning at the seams, but there is none of that. And I feel like they can be worn as leggings or as tights under skirts/dresses.

Don’t you just love Jo-Lynn’s sunglasses? I’m not gonna lie, I’m envious of anyone who can wear sunnies. I can no longer wear my contacts. Dry eyes. Boo. Hiss. Hiss. So I’m stuck wearing glasses with those stupid tinted lenses. That being said, I do spend a lot of money on eyeglasses that y’all don’t see because I almost never take pictures wearing them… Anyway, back to Jo-Lynn. I’m also digging that pale blue cardi – so very pretty. Make sure you head over to her blog and show her some love!
