Fashion over 50: Fresh Summer Color

Hey, friends!  It’s been a challenge to get dressed up this week, but I have one outfit to share.  So often during summer, I’m just trying to stay cool and if we don’t go anywhere important, it’s shorts and cool tops around the house for me.  August is my least favorite month, heat wise, and by now I’m just waiting for Fall to get here and the cooler temps that come with it.  Fall is one of my favorite seasons and it’s just around the corner!  I can see it coming.

In the meantime, I’m trying to stay cool and this outfit that I wore to lunch recently is a winner.  I love the colors of this top, my sister said it looks like sherbet and she’s right!  Fresh hues of coral and pink mixed together for a happy fun top.

I love to shop on thredUP (affiliate link) and had a credit to spend on there, so I found a few things and this top caught my eye with its beautiful fresh colors of pink and coral. These are always good colors for me and brighter colors make me happy too.  The brand is JM Collection, not one I’m familiar with, but I love the knit and stretchiness of this top and fabric.

Three quarter sleeves are a great sleeve for summer or fall and it’s easy to layer a jacket over this type sleeve.  I’m still going strong with my white jeans, those are staples for me and these from Target have been around for a few years.

I added a couple pieces of jewelry and that was it, simple and summery.  Bonus, I match my flowers in the pot!

This is a shorter top and not tunic length, but I like to have both in my closet.

This one is fun!  Stop by thredUP and see if you find anything, I always have good luck on there and their prices are SO good.  I found a few other things that I’ll share later on in the Fall when it gets cooler.

That’s it for today!  Hope you enjoyed and here’s to the rest of summer.  We’ve really enjoyed our summer, but definitely ready for some cooler temps and less humidity. It hits me every year about this time and I’m yearning for Fall.  Thanks as always for stopping by!
