oh, say couple of decades? I feel as tho this outfit maybe a bit youthful for my age ~ can you hear the argument going on in my head? Too young! ~ live a little! ~ dress your age! ~ who cares? Well, the “live a little” side won out this time.
Lets just pretend I’m in my 30’s ~ okay?
I love menswear-inspired looks ~ so when I saw this pinstriped shirt and the tuxedo style vest, I knew it was meant for me! I could have paired it with a wide leg trouser or a pencil skirt for a more polished & mature look, but I didn’t…maybe next time.
If looks could kill…my “James Bond” moment.
The bag is a Christmas gift from hubby….love it so much!
And why is my shirt so wrinkled?… and where is the other half of my necklace?
And to bring a little smile to your day….
Please check out the lovely ladies at Visible Monday @ notdeadyetstyle blog, Monday Mingle @momtrends.com,

Love it all!
hmm … I am always agonizing over whether something that wear is too young for me … but this looks fine. I’d love to see it with trouser pants.
A pair of trousers would definitely change the vibe of the look….I’ll do it for another post.
Oh my, I LOVE your boots. I think you totally rock this look!
Thank you!!! 🙂
You not only turned back the clock, you broke it! You look fantastic! I still haven’t figured out what age-appropriate dressing means yet. If it looks good on you, that is all that matters. The necklace is fantastic and I love vests! This is a great outfit and completely something I would wear too.
Thanks for visiting my “Shoesday” post! I appreciate it!
Thank you so very much! We, shoe addicts, need to support each other!
Why do we need to pretend…first of all you LOOK 30 in this outfit..LOVE IT! Super chic…but regardless of your inner turmoil, this is totally appropriate and trendy for any age…you aren’t showing any scandalous skin or anything…just fitted to your body which is rocking!!!
Kudos, outfit well done.
Thank you Carly! It’s a good thing I haven’t worn anything too scanty in a while….it would be scandalous in this small town I live in. 🙂
Fun outfit! I love anything menswear inspired – and EBEW’s black and white challenge is definitely the perfect menswear challenge 😀 Thanks for visiting my blog ❤
You’re welcome! It was fun to check out all the ladies at the EBEW.
love the booties! they’re such a great color.
Love the outfit! Looking good! I have that argument in my head everyday. Gonna be 44… Only as young as I feel, so I am going for it!
You go girl!! 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!
Love the outfit!! You look great!
Thank you Alida! I see that you are in Belize…we were there on vacation last October and loved it! Totally understand what you’re going thru…empty nest is not pleasant! Not the first word that came to mind… Thanks for visiting!
I love the shoes and especially the pop of red of the bag against the neutral pieces!
Thank you Devorah! I do love adding colors using accessories.
popping over from EBEW
i don’t think this look is so young!!
i actually love it
i have a boston as well, her name is chester. lol
Hi Brett! Thanks for dropping by! Kisses to Chester!
Age is nothing but a number and you completely prove that. I love this look and think pairing it with the taupe boots is nothing short of brilliant.
Hi Gracey! Thank you so much for your visit and your sweet comment! I really like your name…my sister’s name is Grace and my blog title is Gracefully50! And of course, only by His Grace…
At first I thought that the boots were what were intended to make me smile. And they did!
(the photo of the dogs is cute too!)
Haha….good one! They make me smile, too!
You look amazingly beautiful. Your black and white ensemble is classy and stylish, and your acessories just right. well done! Age doesn’t matter when you have a great style.
Thank you so much!!!
You look absolutely fabulous … and I agree with the comments, you look age appropriate and you’re so vibrant that dowdy clothes simply would not suit you.
Oh my…thanks Wendy!
love your look! your bag and your shoes are really beautiful!!!!
Thanks V! Hope you had a wonderful time with your family! Would love to see what cool stuff you acquired on your shopping spree.
You look great in this outfit and totally appropriate for you. Love the booties too! When you actually don’t look like you’re 50, there really is no point dressing too old!
Thanks Sylvia! Nooo…don’t want to dress old…
You look like you’re in your thirties to me! Gorgeous look!
Wishful thinking…but thank you Kristin!
perfection! ‘nuf said!
Sweet! Thanks Tammy!
Think about it this way…how many people out in the world notice our age? Therefore, we are as young as we carry ourselves. I love the look!
Hmm…when you put it that way, guess I shouldn’t worry so much. The only opinion I really care about is my hubby’s, and he’d love me in a potato sack. Thanks!
Love your blog….I’m obsessed with fashion & style…I’m 50 also (man I can’t believe it)…You look great…the outfit is very appropriate…:)
Hi Cindy! Tell me about it. I used to think women in their 50’s were old and here I am. I’ve had a great life…no complaints here….just don’t feel like I should be in my 50’s yet. I appreciate your visit and hope you come back.
I say if you have it go ahead and flaunt it….and you definitely have it.
You look beautiful!
Haha! Thanks Bella! I’m gonna flaunt it, and it’s all your fault!
I love it so much on you. It looks good on you and I don’t know if it does look good on me I might try it next time had to find a vest and that look would be my inspiration, will see. And yes a 50F in Michigan in winter time is like a heat wave hehehe. Thanks for the visit. ^_^
I think you would great! Hope you can fine a vest. Let me know….I’d love to see it!
Looks perfectly age appropriate to me! Love it!
Thanks!! I’m pretending to be 30 something for a day!
Fantastic outfit. I love menswear inspired looks. Those boots are just rockin’!
Hi Debbie! Thank you! I like menswear look so much that I actually borrow hubs ties on a regular basis. He doesn’t mind at all, he hates ties.
This is a great outfit, I like the boots….You can turn back the time to 30!
Thanks Kim! If only I could….
Hey the outfit looks great!!! Not too young at ALL! And I LOVE your bag!!! What a great colour!!!
Hi Lady J! Wearing jeggings instead of a trouser had me question the choice…thanks for the thumbs up tho. Hubs did great with the gift…he knows me too well!
This look is completely appropriate — no need to question it, you look great! And I’m drooling over the boots. Lovely post today!
Thank you so much Laura! I’m afraid I question my choices all the time…
I have a huge soft spot for boots….well, really any kind of shoes. 🙂
Jeannie my dear, you look gorgeous as always…and …completely age appropriate…you are a beautiful, fit, vivacious women…and should dress accordingly…as you have so successfully done!
Kudos my friend!
Wow! Thank you so very much for your super kind words!! My ego thanks you, too!
You look amazing! Love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog…
Hi Jeanna! You’re so welcome, I love discovering great new blogs! Thank you for visiting and your sweet comment! Btw, I like you name! 🙂
I like this look and you absolutely look like you are in your 30s!! A look like this is timeless.
Hi Pam! I so appreciate the complement! To be in my 30’s again…kids, ball games, work, travel, no me time…yep, good times!
I think you dressed for your age here, because I think as long as something looks great on you then you’ve dressed for your age. You look great and I love those boots!
Thank you!!! I’m always having this battle of should I or shouldn’t I. Aging gracefully is not easy. I don’t even know what that mean sometimes. 😦
You look fabulous! And nice synchronicity with Patti’s look for Visible Monday.
Thank you Frances! And yes, I told Patti the same thing…great minds…:)
You rocked this outfit! Love the boots!
Thank you Daisha! I kinda love those boots, too. Have a great week!
First, you don’t look like you could be a day older than 38!! And second, as you said, who cares? : > This is a great look, and you wear it beautifully. Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday!
Wish I could be 38 again! Thank you for your sweet words!
