We made it to Friday, woo-hoo! This has been the adjustment week for my blogging schedule. May 1st was my launch day, so my blog is just 5 weeks old this week. I decided that I have been a really tough boss on myself and that I am really hard to work for, LOL. So, I am changing to a new schedule of posting on just Monday, Wednesday and Friday instead of 6 days per week. This should be more comfortable for me and you will receive just three e-mails each week. During this adjustment, I also want to share more of my thoughts and feelings about being over 50 in addition to the focus being on fashion and beauty. I am wearing this dressy casual red, white and dark navy outfit today for shopping and lunch with my younger daughter — fingers crossed for no rain!
Dressy Casual Red, White, Dark Navy Blue
One more red, white and blue outfit cannot hurt anything, right? So, I decided to include this final set of images I already had on-hand to round out and finish up the series on wearing red, white and blue. If you missed the beginning of the series, you can find the previous five posts here:
This is another one of my ancient tops that I love and have been wearing for years, probably a Ross purchase. As far as print goes, this is about as crazy as I can go without it looking too busy. It works because it is somewhat muted and just two colors. It is a lightweight knit that is styled with a high-waisted wrap just under the bust line with a slight mandarin neckline. This is a flattering style that gives a taller, leaner appearance. I found similar options for you on Amazon here:
The dark navy pants are by Chaps and are a mid-weight stretchy poly-blend with no pockets, a side zipper, and a smooth wide elastic waist. Smooth with no details is essential to avoid a bulky puffy look that can make you look heavier. Navy is a versatile softer option to black for a foundation piece in your wardrobe. These are considered capri length, but fit me as a cropped pant due to my height.
Fun Jewelry with Red, White, Dark Navy Blue
I have worn the same jewelry and shoes in every red, white and blue post in this series to show how versatile these accessories can be. There is a description and close-up of the jewelry in a previous post here.
Dark Navy Capri Pants with Red Shoes
I chose to balance the red top with my red sandals. The dark navy pants bring out the navy in the tassel necklace so it doesn’t get lost in the printed top. I have had the red sandals for a couple of years, they are “Rayana” by Life Stride with light support. I found similar styles for you on Amazon:
