These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

IMG_0606 (Custom) IMG_0609 (Custom) IMG_0614 IMG_0615   IMG_0627 (Custom) IMG_0631 (Custom) IMG_0629 (Custom) ( First line to be sung to, ” My Favorite Things” Melody”) 20’s hats and mulberry coats that are wa-arm, lovely lace vintage skirt that made me swa-arm, fleece lined boots, long black socks pa-ast my knees, cinnamon cardigan, hon, would you please?

This is the day before Thanksgiving and we are running around like a “turkey” (ahem) with its head cut off, we were able to get some shots at a lovely place that we go to near the lake when it is warmer. Today, Not so warm. But, as a waitress said after I had my hard boiled eggs benedict ( I like the eggs hard, and he doesn’t), ” I have never seen you in an outfit I didn’t like.” So, nice to hear from a stranger as it is not prompted by loved ones. That added fuel to the fire to get the shots taken, as it was getting colder here, and the wind was blowing, we found the spot appealing.. What I love about this skirt is the scalloped edges at the bottom, it looks vintage, and it has a peacock like pattern, with the grosgrain waist band it is win-win. I also don’t know what it is with me and hats lately. Granted I presently have 3, but I just love the 20’s flapper hats, via Gretchen Mol in Boardwalk Empire.

    Hi Jess,
    You look adorable in this outfit. I love the color on you, and your flaming red hair. I’m a huge fan of brighter colors on mature women because after 40 it is too easy to fall into a black rut. Good for you for having the confidence to pull this off. Cheers my fellow 40+ fashionista!

    Fabulous After 40

    I have almost exactly the same hat! I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to share here the post in which I wear it.

      I like your hat as well. I have another that looks from the 20’s era in grey. I picked it up in Asheville, NC. 🙂

      Thank you so much. Believe me, I try. I use hot rollers as my hair is poker straight, I saw the skirt in Ann Taylor and the owner knows me, ( ah oh) and knew it was my style, so it became mine. I will look at your site soon! You too

    Jessica your hair is absolutely breathtaking… and wow does the red look so fantastic with it! I love all hats, but cloches are especially stylish, and would you believe I don’t have one myself. Love all the details of your outfit: plus the skirt is soooo pretty!

    Oh and you should check out – she looks like your younger, just as gorgeous, sister. Tell her I said hi!

    Good luck with the blog, you’re off to a great start!
