Fashion over 50: Date Night Dance

Hi, friends!  It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me and I’m heading out of town to Nashville (Franklin) this weekend, so I haven’t had too much time for wearing a lot of different fashions lately.  Mark and I are taking West Coast swing dance lessons right now and so we try to get to the Friday night dance as often as we can to practice our dance moves. It’s so fun and we are enjoying doing this together.  It’s so nice to be with a guy who loves to do different things and dance lessons was his idea. I was interested in learning different ballroom dances, but when I met him he was already taking dance classes so I joined him in those and we are continuing with more.  I love that this is something we can continue to do as we get older.

My top today is a new feature from Covered Perfectly, the online women’s clothing company that I work with on my blog.  I love when they add new fabrics and this black and cream Simple Comfort top is so pretty.  Soft, lightweight and 3/4 sleeves, it’s a great top alone or layered under a jacket.

You know my love for black and white and this one is another great top to add to my closet.

The pants are new too and I picked them up at Costco during the hearing aid visits.  The brand is Andrew Marc and they are soft and comfy ponte knit fabric.  They have a waistband with tabs and are regular pants, but very comfortable like leggings.  They were $15 at Costco and I really like the way they fit and I love that they are long enough for me.

The jewelry I picked up at the Atlanta mart this year is really versatile for a lot of my clothing, so I wore the sparkly necklace with this top.

This top makes a fun outfit for going out and I know it will be a favorite of mine. I can throw on a cute jacket to dress it up or down.

I also picked up a new pair of dancing shoes online.  These are A2 from Aerosoles and I’ve been looking for a pair of neutral heels that are comfortable and these fit the bill.  Two inch heels are perfect for me and they are comfortable too for an evening of dancing. This color shoes is so versatile with a lot of different clothes.

If you like these shoes, you’re in luck!  Aerosoles has them marked down to $29 and I paid $49 from another retailer.

    I love that you and your sweetheart dance together! That is amazing. I am sure he lives to show you off in your cute outfit and pretty smile!

  2. Rhoda, that is a really pretty top and heels! I have so wanted to take dancing lessons, but I can’t get my hubby interested! Maybe…eventually!

  3. Roxanne says:

    Reading about you and Mark makes my heart happy! And you make the simplest outfits look glamorous. Now that it has been awhile, how does your dad like his Costco hearing aids?

    • Roxanne, thank you! Dad is doing great with his hearing aids. I can really tell he is liking them, even if he doesn’t totally admit it. He’s wearing them all the time.

  4. Love this outfit on you! Now I’m off to Costco to find those pants!

  5. Awe…dancing sounds fun. Love the outfit. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. Nice outfit! Can you share where you are taking dance lessons? I live in the area, and am looking for a class.

    • Hi, Beth, sure we are taking lessons at Atlanta Dance on Roswell Road, Marietta. They have dances every Friday night too so it’s fun and an older crowd. We sometimes feel like the youngsters in there.

  7. How fun you two are taking lessons! Love that top on you.

  8. I ordered this top, which I love, plus two of the leisure suits and another top from Covered Perfectly and they are perfect! I love that all are made the USA, the shipping is free, and there is no tax on the purchase. I ordered one piece first, just to check quality and size. I was so pleased with the quality of the product- nice weight of fabric, good stitching and color fastness, that I ordered other things I liked. I am sure there will be future orders. Rhoda, thanks for endorsing a wonderful company!

  9. If men only knew how much women love a man who dances, they’d all be taking lessons!!! Love your outfit this week!

    • Haha, Jane, that’s so true. I’ve heard other women complain because their guys don’t want to dance.

  10. Rhoda I wish you could talk to this company about plus size clothes. I love what they offer but I wear plus size and would love tops that keep you covered.

    • We have recently added 1X to a number of styles and will continue to add them. Unfortunately there are no plans to add any larger sizes at this time. Hopefully you are a 1X 🙂

  11. Do the black pants come in petite? They look like exactly what I have been looking for. Love the shoes too, a 2 in. heel is all I can do now. Thanks for the info!

  12. I went to the Aerosoles site and the shoes are $59.00 now:(

  13. Mark is lucky!
