Fashion over 50: Dressing for Spring

Hey friends,welcome to another Fashion over 50! Today I’m dressing a little more spring-like, since the temps and weather are finally cooperating here in ATL. We’ve gotten some really nice weather lately and so the spring colors are coming out.

I went shopping this week at Ross Stores and found some cute things that I brought home, so I’ll be sharing those soon. They are not all springy, but more black and white things that I couldn’t resist. They have an annual dress event which just started I think, so if you’re in the market for some spring/summer dresses, stop by and check them out. I bought 5 things for around $130 and they are all cute (including a jumpsuit!), can’t wait to share them with you. I will be taking some of them on our cruise in about a month, which I’m SO excited for!

I got out my winter white cotton cropped pants from Banana Republic that I’ve had for several years and mixed it with a pretty coral and white top and a coral cardigan. I got this cardigan at thredUP (affiliate link) and have found a lot of great things at that online consignment store.

The cardigan is Eileen fisher and is the perfect weight for spring fashion when you need just a little something on the arms. It seems that we go so fast into summer than I don’t have a lot of time to wear spring cardigans like this, only a month or 2.

I like this one because it’s lower in the back and gives a nice clean look to my outfit. Those booties I’ve had for a few years too, from TJ Maxx. My feet aren’t ready for spring yet, but it’s time very soon to get a pedicure and get them ready for sandals.

I hope you got a few ideas on ways you can put Spring items together in your closet. I hardly ever wear the same things together more than once or twice and enjoy mixing things around using what I have.

Coral is definitely my color, as is turquoise, so when I can find that color, I grab it.

Here are a few things from thredUP I saw that you might like (affiliate links used). Some good buys on booties right now at end of season and I’ve added a few spring things below too that caught my eye:

  1. That is definitely your color! Great look. Yesterday I wore a hot pink boyfriend cardigan, white tee, and jeans out to some appointments, accessorized with a turquoise scarf trimmed with the same pink ball fringe. I got compliments everywhere I went (which at 66 I’m happy to take!). I really think the pink color just made people happy after all the gray, rainy days.

  2. That color looks gorgeous on you! Perfect for spring.

  3. Happy Spring Rhoda…to you and your family!…YES, time for brighter colors. I like your idea of choosing bright colors that complement our hair and complexion…You’re an inspiration to your readers!…Sue Fox

    Enjoy your cruise. Every time I say the word to my husband, I get a silent eye roll and grunt – his way of saying ‘not in his lifetime.’ You will be perfectly outfitted and ready to go! These colors look good on you.
