You all know I love a good bargain and when I go into my local Goodwill I can’t help but browse through the home section and also a few clothes. Something things jump out at me and I end up taking a few things home. I was in there last week and found this cute faux fur jacket that will be fun and casual for this time of year. Of course, our weather is all over the place. One weekend we have snow and ice and the next weekend it’s 70 degrees! Welcome to the South!
I paired it with my new Old Navy Rockstar jeans (affiliate link). By the way I found out after digging that Old Navy Rockstar jeans come in Tall and Long. Their regular length is 32″ (which is what I ended up getting to wear with booties and flats, so you have to be aware of that when you’re ordering. Although when I measured these they are not 32″ long, they are only about 30″ so you have to watch the lengths at Old Navy. Mine have been all over the place. I’d like to get a pair that is actually 32″ long. Longs are 34″ and Talls are 36″.
This top is one I got from Glamour Farms back in the Fall, so I don’t think it’s available anymore. Booties I got in the fall too from TJ Maxx.
This cute caramel faux fur jacket was less than $5 at Goodwill and I happen to shop on Senior day. Being a senior does have its advantages some days.
It will be a fun little jacket to have in my closet for a cool day.
That’s one of my finds this week! I’ve bought a few tops that I’ll share with you later too. Thank you as always for stopping by Fashion over 50. I love to mix up my wardrobe and add a few things from thrifting.
Hi, everyone! It's been a slow week for me, trying to wind down the year this week after Christmas and get geared up for a brand New Year jus around the corner. This time of year I tend to be a little melancholy and a tad lazy, getting my Christmas decorations put away and getting the house back to normal. I do like to start the New Year off with a little bit of cleaning and organizing, … Read More»
It's the end of the year again! How did that happen so fast?! As I've been doing since 2008, I'm hosting my end of the year Top Projects of 2016 party, where I'm sharing what I got accomplished at my house this year and I encourage other bloggers to link up and share their successes. It's always fun to look back and see how far we've come. As I look back at 4 years in my house now, it's … Read More»
It's so hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone this year! I seems to arrive before we know it and it's over before we can blink. This year I was determined to slow down and really enjoy the season and I accomplished that, taking time off and not getting into the hustle and bustle of busyness. It was a peaceful week before Christmas and our family enjoyed a wonderful day together on … Read More»
Last year, my friend Tammy brought these cookies to my house and I loved them. Chocolate chip cookies are always a favorite of mine and I have variations on chocolate chip/oatmeal cookies that I've made for years. I decided to try a batch of these this year and they really are delicious.
I made 2 batches and the second one was better than the first. I can't say I'm an experienced baker and … Read More»
I mentioned to y'all that Mark and I went to a fun Marietta Square Gala the weekend before my birthday. It was Black Tie which meant I needed a long dress. I have a few ankle length black dresses, but decided to shop online and see what I could find. I ordered 2 dresses from Macy's and one of them I fell in love with and kept. I felt so good in it and it will be a dress that I can wear for … Read More»
The weekend before my birthday kicked off the Christmas season for me. Mark and I went to a Black Tie Gala in conjunction with the Marietta Pilgrimage tour (I'll be sharing my formal dress that I wore tomorrow!), which celebrated its 30th year this year. I haven't always gone to the Christmas tour of homes, but have been going for several years now. Driving around the streets of Old Marietta … Read More»
This will be my last room tour for Christmas this year. Instead of putting it all in one Christmas home tour post, I thought it would be more fun to spread out the Holiday cheer with one room at a time. I always use silver in my dining room and it mixes so well in there.
Now we are counting down the days until the big day arrives. I'll be spending time with my family and loved ones this week … Read More»
