Fashion over 50: Covered Perfectly Vest

I’m back with another outfit for Fashion over 50 today and it’s a fun black and white vest from Covered Perfectly, a company I work with often.  They have great tops and vests, catering to women over 50, with longer tops and very nice material that keeps its shape and they are made in the USA, always a plus.

I’ve shared this particular vest before in another black and white print and it’s so cute and comfortable.It covers without being heavy at all and that lightweight chiffon fabric is lightweight and easy breezy for summer.  Black and white is always a favorite of mine and I love the combination in clothing and in home decor.  You can’t go wrong with black and white, always a classic!

This black and white cascading vest (affiliate link) from Covered Perfectly (new fabric offered) is versatile and so nice for summer, since it is very lightweight, but feels like it’s covering you up.

I’m also wearing their Simple Comfort white top (in Small), a versatile style top made in Micromodal and spandex fabric, with just enough stretch.

Those black pants are from Theory, from a shopping event I went to.  They gifted us with these pants and they are really nice, stretchy and form fitting.  But, as you probably know, I wouldn’t normally spend this much on pants, but I’m going to enjoy them. They are a little dressy in fabric with Elastane, very stretchy and comfortable.


So, that’s a fun look at this new vest black and white vest from Covered Perfectly.

Just wanted to mention that I will more than likely be skipping Fashion over 50 for the next couple of weeks.  It’s going to be a very busy time, with Haven coming up next week and the week after that, I’ll be heading to the beach for a few days with my boyfriend, Mark’s family.  They are going to St. George Island in Florida and I’m going to join them for a few days. I’m staying at a cute B&B in Apalachicola and I’ll share that with you all too.  Can’t wait for some beach time!

I’ll have lots to share when I return and in the meantime, I’m having some of my over 50 blog friends share some guest posts for me, so you’ll have plenty to read and I’ll do some posts in between.  There will be plenty going on here on the blog, so you’ll barely know I’m gone!

The Nordstrom big summer sale is still going on, so if you missed these picks of mine, below are some clothes I thought were really cute and I can see myself wearing any of these. The shorter dresses, I would wear with skinny pants or leggings for a fun look.

And a few shoes caught my eye too! These are similar to a few pair that I have and enjoy, so thought I’d pass these along. The sale is a great way to get some early Fall things and also summer items.

Have You Had Your Colonoscopy?


I hope that this subject won't cause my dear readers to completely lose it on me and not stop by to read today, but I thought the subject was important enough to talk about. The older I get, the more that aging and health issues become even more of a priority to me and my friends, so I figured it might be something you'd all be interested in as well. My real life friends and I talk about these … Read More»

Oh, the things you can do with a fresh homegrown tomato! Summer is in full swing here in Georgia and believe me, right about now we surely all feel the heat and humidity that this time year brings to the South.  Heat is really good for growing crops, as long as there is plenty of rain too and thankfully, we are getting those late afternoon thunder showers quite a bit this summer, so the gardens … Read More»

Fashion over 50: Black Pants and Ruffle Top

fashion over 50004

Today, I've only got one outfit to share and I've share the top before, but it's always nice to have another look at styling an outfit. This time I paired this top from Steinmart with black skinny pants that I found at Costco, by Calvin Klein.  This long tunic is perfect for skimming over the black pants and I added those black wedge shoes from Target as an accent. The top is gauzy material … Read More»

How to Make a Sewing Armoire

One of the things that Lauren has done at her house that I thought was really neat is to create a sewing armoire cabinet out of an armoire she bought on Craigslist.  She's an avid Craigslist shopper and has found some great things on there for her house. When Iris came and claimed her craft room, she moved it down to the small office space to the left of the front door coming in.  It's an open … Read More»

Feature Friday: Simple Nature Decor Blog


Today's Feature Friday is a great summer home! I love coastal homes and can just imagine how fun it would be to live near the water. The low-country of South Carolina with its marshland and beauty of the sea is a charming area.   Maria and her hubby built their dream home in South Carolina, a low-country home that just evokes so much Southern charm and coastal living.  I am not sure how far they … Read More»
