Thank you ALL for the sweet birthday wishes and all the fun comments on my birthday post yesterday! I sat around in my pjs all day enjoying the rainy day and feeling happy and blessed. My mom and sister and I went to my mom’s church ladies Christmas party last night, so it’s been a celebratory birthday weekend.
Since it’s the Christmas season, I thought a fun red top would be in order, so I am partnering with Covered Perfectly on one of their festive red tops to share with you today.

This style Covered Perfectly top is called the Allyson keyhole and it’s a beautiful shade of red, perfect for Christmas.
I wore it with jewelry and with a scarf for a couple of different looks, both paired with my winter white skinny cords and a new pair of black booties I just got. These tops are made with that Micromodal and spandex, which is such a great fabric combo, so comfortable and soft and this one has a slight feminine flair.
The black, white and red plaid scarf adds a really fun look, I think, perfect for a December outing.
The monogrammed scarf came from my friend, Debbie’s shop, Miss Lucy’s Monograms last year. It’s nice to have a friend in the monogram business.
Topping off my red top is this black and white houndstooth cape I got last year too. I found one similar here (affiliate link), but looks like there’s only one. My brand is Capelli.
These skinny cords are from Kut from the Kloth (Diana), which I’ve shared before. They are a Winter White corduroy. Here they are from Amazon (affiliate link).
Now to the black booties! I seem to be adding more shoes and boots to my closet, but I just can’t help it. I have a taller pair of booties, but really don’t like a high heel very often, so looked for a pair with a shorter heel and this pair by my fave brand, Sam Edelman, is about 1 1/2″ tall and so far they are very comfortable. The leather is a pebbled leather and I can see wearing these with a lot of outfits. I wore my bootie socks with them and they were perfect too. By the way, the bootie socks washed up just fine, someone was asking me about those.

Hope this gave you some fun ideas and check out Covered Perfectly tops for flattering tops for women over 50! I am wondering if I need to change my Fashion over 50 to Fashion over 60, now that I’ve graduated to the next decade? What do you all think? I know Fashion over 50 pertains to any age over that, but it seems more in keeping with the truth if I start using Fashion over 60. I’ll definitely be tagging both in my social media posts! Thank you as always for stopping by today!
