Fashion over 50: Date Night Casual Jeans

Happy Wednesday! Time for another fashion over 50 and today’s post is an outfit I wore a couple of weeks ago to a dinner party at a friend’s house. It’s nice to get a little more fixed up than normal and it was a coolish spring evening so I had to have a little big of cover on my arms.

White shirt, jeans and flats were perfect for this outing and I topped it with my black and white houndstooth cape that I’ve had for a few years. It’s just the right amount of coverage this time of year.

Easy casual look, but cute too!

These jeans I got last year from Nordstrom Rack. I don’t see them anymore, but have linked a couple of pair below from the same brand. This blouse came from Cracker Barrel last year.

Those flats are from Goodwill that I shared before.

I got this jewelry a couple of years ago from a company and now I can’t remember the name, but I think it’s very pretty and dresses up this top.

Here are a few similar things to what I’m wearing (affiliate links below). I’ve bought some Spring sale things lately and have a lot of new things to share with you soon, so I’ll try those on and take pics as soon as I can. I’ve bought 2 more jumpsuits and a few other things too, so can’t wait to share those as well as the dresses I got from Ross.

This is one of the other jumpsuits I just bought, so I thought I’d share before I try them on for you all. I just got them and love the white jeans jacket too! This jumpsuit is a knit fabric and very comfy and easy to get on. I’m going to take these on my cruise! I think I got the mini Dalmation dot, there are a few fabric choices in this. I’ll wear this with black espadrilles.

Here are a few things from Macy’s that are similar and they are having sales!

  1. Love shopping Cracker Barrel for clothes. If Greg has to travel for work and stops at Cracker Barrel, he always finds me a top to bring home. Wink!!
    You look so classy in denim and white. Happy Wednesday!

  2. I love shopping in Cracker Barrel too. They always have cute blouses, holiday decorations, and chicken ‘n dumplings! Love your cape too.

    Love the whole “package” – stylish, youthful but also age appropriate all at the same time. Just what I look for even though I’m a number of years older than you. Also seems to be an outfit that can be but together on most budgets. I always enjoy your fashion post. Thanks

    • Thank you, Sherry, I’m glad you all like my fashion posts. I rarely wear things the same way when I pull them out of my closet so it’s nice to mix things around for different looks. And you know my fashion is budget friendly for sure.

  4. This is a great casual look on you, Rhoda! Oh my, I love that houndstooth cape. Beautiful!

  5. You look great, Rhoda! YOur hair is so cute with the flipped out side bangs. I have been meaning to ask you which way your husband likes your hair better or did you ask? I asked Johnny and he likes mine curly and so does my hair stylish but a lot of people like the straight bob too. I love those earrings! In the summer I love a great big pair of earrings and a cute top , especially white like yours with a fake tan, LOL! No sun after the money spent at the dermatologist to repair what I did years ago in my youth laying in the sun. Hope you enjoyed your night out and your look so happy nowadays!

    • Thank you, Bonnie, I hear you on the sun! I need to stay out of it too and only get a little bit each year. I’ve damaged a lot too. Mark says he likes my hair both ways which is good. I get tons of compliments on it when it’s curly from everyone on the web. My friends don’t say much either way but it’s nice to do it both ways. I usually straighten it half the week and wear it curly the other half, since I wash my hair twice a week now.


    Rhoda, you have so many cute outfits and always look so pretty in each of them! I love Cracker Barrel, too, and shop whenever we are at one. Unfortunately, there are none here in Canada where we live! Maybe that’s a good thing as I just love everything in their store and always find lots to bring home with me! I can only shop on-line now and have the items sent to a parcel holding place just across the border!

    Have a great day!

  7. Hi Rhoda!!

    You are one beautiful, radiant woman!! Love this outfit!! I can’t wait for the colours of Summer.

    Enjoy the rest of the week and then it’s off to the weekend!!

    I LOVE that cape!!!! You can’t go wrong w/black & white! Great outfit!

  9. Rhoda, My niece is getting married Nov. 1 near Atlanta. What is the weather like at that time of year. Coming from CT. so ideas on what to wear would be appreciated! I like your style and we are similar age and size. Thanks!

    • HI, Margot, November can be iffy, but it’s usually pretty mild that time of year, maybe in the 50’s. But definitely check ahead before you pack and come down here, since our weather patterns change frequently. It just depends on what’s going on and blowing in at any given time.

  10. I buy almost all my clothing at Goodwill, but I have never bought shoes there. I notice you mentioned your shoes in this post are from Goodwill. I am wondering if you know what is done or can be done to sanitize shoes. I often wear slip on shoes with a liner, but sometimes I’m lazy and just put them on with bare feet. I often see shoes I’d like to get, but the sanitation issue holds me back.

    • Hi, Jane, I’ve bought many shoes at Goodwill that look brand new. You can wipe them down with a sanitizing wipe inside to sanitize them. But I’ve never had any issues with my used shoes.

  11. That houndstooth cape!!!! I love it.
