Fashion over 50: Summer Casual White Jeans

Hey, friends, this time of year is about staying cool in this hot Georgia heat.  The temps are way up and the humidity is even higher, making it feel like you’re just going to melt out there. So, my solution is to dress casually yet comfortably cool.  I tend to wear my white jeans a lot during summer even though they can be a little bit hot, Mark and I had a date night out to one of our favorite Thai/sushi places last weekend, Thai Coon, on the Marietta Square and I wore this light casual top I got from thredUP (affiliate link) recently.

This is a very lightweight and sheer top from DKNY I found on there and it was sheer enough I layred it over a spandex white camisole.

It’s in a pretty coral and white print and I liked the pattern. And it’s longer in the back than the front.

I just added my gold sandals from Target that I’ve had for awhile and a new purse I found at TJ Maxx recently.

Turquoise goes so well with coral and I tend to mix those up a lot.

I have plenty of turquoise and coral jewelry and they add a lot to an outfit.

My hair is definitely feeling the humdity that summer brings, although I had just gotten a keratin treatment that day and it had just rained. We will see if it helps in the long run, it’s been a couple of years since I’ve gotten one and they usually help with the frizzies and limp hair.  But with the humidity we have here in Georgia, it’s hard to combat that.  I’m hoping this keratin treatment helps more!

That’s it for today, hope you have a great week!

I did find a couple of new things I wanted to share with y’all.  I tried out a new bra that I really love. Found it at Walmart and the brand is Warner’s, Blissfull Benefits.  I was so tired of underwire bras and determined to find something that wasn’t so hot and binding for summer.  This one is very stretchy and has lots of spandex and no underwire.  If you are big chested, this might not be the bra for you, but for me (not big), it works great.  I’m linking it below if you’re interested!

I also tried out a fiber mascara by Loreal that I like so I’m linking it too, Voluminous Superstar. Made my lashes much longer than normal, it has a primer on one end and mascara on the other end.  Just be careful on the bottom lashes, because I got a little raccoon eyes going on under my eyes after wearing it for a few hours.  It might be the heat!

Loft has a great 40% off everything sale right now and I’ve added a few things from there that caught my eye:

    Your outfit is very summery and casual, and it looks very cool in the heat. I love the mix of coral and turquoise, summer colours that go beautifully together and also add a touch of fun elegance to the outfit. Your makeup is perfect, too, and the coral lipstick looks like it was made with the top in mind.

      Thank you, Carolyn, we have to stay cool during the summer heat. I do love those colors together.

    Very Cute! Be careful with L’Oréal mascara as I am allegoric to something in their mascaras. Back in the 90’s I used some & my eyes got all puffy and red . I think at times the simpler the better with mascara for me. Some of those fiber things hurt my eyes also. Waterproof works for me as a contact wearer for upclose vision. Let us know if you like the Keratin treatment & if it helping with humidity. Mississippi is hot and humid too. I love your outfit and it look great on you!

    Rhoda, I have never commented on your blog that I remember, but I just want to tell you how much I enjoy your blog! I look forward each morning to reading what you have to say. I feel like I know you and your sweet family! Your blog is the most balanced helpful blog that I read. You always are thrifty with your suggestions which I like. Keep up the good work! Melba

      Hi, Melba, thank you so much for commenting and letting me know that! I have no idea who all out there is reading along until you comment, so I love to hear from all of you. I really try to keep things balanced on here and sharing real life is just the way I like to blog, so I’m happy it resonates with my readers.

    I look forward to your Fashion over 50 each week. I love high/low tops and the coral color looks great on you. I will definitively try out the bra as I wear a B cup and am wearing out my expensive underwire bras washing them so much this summer.

    About the mascara, I have deep set eyes and oily skin. I struggled finding a mascara that didn’t give me raccoon eyes. I don’t like using makeup remover so waterproof mascara isn’t for me. I finally tried CoverGirl Professional Remarkable Washable Waterproof Mascara. It washes off with soap and water and it doesn’t smudge my skin.

    • Hi Susan…thanks for the suggestion of the Cover Girl mascara…I usually wear their Lash Blast mascaras but I want to give yours a try…I don’t remember seeing it but I will do a search.

  5. Hi Rhoda! I love your outfit! I have tried some things from Thread Up myself. Mostly I have been satisfied. I love the cute box they send my order in. I think you are right…your idea to wear turquoise with peach is just beautiful. Thanks for sharing your outfit with us.

    Thank you for the bra suggestion. I would appreciate more feed back on undergarments. I really appreciate that because I feel lost in the undergarment world.


    • http://Rhoda says

      Hey, Lynn, I feel lost sometimes too. Happy to share what I find that I like and that one is so reasonable and I’m really liking it for summer.

    New to your blog today. I just subscribed. Macon gal living in the L.A. area for almost 50 years. Love everything southern. The outfit is beautiful and very well put together. Curious where you purchased the necklace. I just love that. I am looking forward to future posts.
    Thank you.

    • http://Rhoda says

      HI, Connie, welcome and so glad you found me! That necklace was an online purchase from probably 3 or 4 years ago. A gal I know was doing a Facebook jewelry sales and she no longer does those.

    Dear Rhoda:: I understand the hair dilemma as I live in Virginia and we are hot and humid as well, tomorrow is suppose to be 95 (ugh). I use a leave in treatment called (10) , yes the numeral 10, and CVS, Harris Teeter grocery stores and some other places carry it. It is in a spray bright blue bottle and I think it works great, really controls the frizzies and keeps your hair smooth. If you can’t find it and are interested, let me know and I will send you a bottle to try. It is about $17.00 but worth every penny!

    • http://Debra says

      Just like Deborah, I live in Virginia and have fine straight hair. I love the It’s A 10 products…..they have one with Keratin. I get it at CVS, Ulta, or Walgreens with a coupon. Their volumizing shampoo is good too!

    • http://Rhoda says

      Thank you, Debra, the only one I’ve used is the creme from that line, so I’ll have to look at the rest.

    • http://Rhoda says

      Hi, Deborah, I’ve tried a lot of products but will have to look for that one. My stylist uses the It’s a 10 creme on my hair and I have that, but I don’t think it’s a miracle worker on my hair. Thanks!

  9. Oh, we were in the Gainsville area of Georgia week before last and it was hot and humid then but it’s the same way here in NE Louisiana. Your outfit is very cute and cool looking and I love the turquoise jewelry with it.

    Rhoda, love your outfit today! Glad you and Mark are out and about doing some fun things!
    Coincidentally, I found that same bra you mentioned at Wal-Mart a month or so ago, and it has become my favorite! (I’m a medium size.)

  11. http://Sandy says

    Rhoda, like you I have very curly hair. I live in Houston with unbelievable humidity. Just walking to my mailbox causes my hair to frizz. My hairdresser suggested the Brazilian Blowout over the Keratin because it handles the humidity better. Having tried both the Brazilian and the Keratin, I must say having had both…the Brazilian really does handle the humidity better for me.
    Love your outfit today. I always look forward to your fashion over 50. Enjoy your summer!

    • http://Rhoda says

      Hey, Sandy, I’ve heard of that, but thought it was about the same as a keratin treatment, so I’ll have to ask about that too.

  12. http://MARY-ANN%20(FROM%20CANADA!) says

    Such a cute outfit, Rhoda! You just look so pretty!

  13. http://Beth%20Guernsey says

    Very cute outfit, Rhoda! Thanks for sharing the bra information too. I would also like to know if you have any suggestions for a comfortable brand of undies as well!

    • http://Rhoda says

      HI, Beth, happy to pass that on, I love that bra. I have yet to find underwear that I’m wild about. I usually go to TJ Maxx and just look for different brands and styles and add to my underwear drawer that way. I’d love to find some tried and loved brands to share, but I haven’t found one yet. I don’t spent a ton on my undies.
