Tutti Frutti ~

Hello friends!

I hope you don’t mind my calling you friends?

First, I want to thank you all for your thoughtful and sweet comments on the last post “Am I wrong?”  Hubby and I’ve been in discussion for the past few days on this subject…well one sided discussion really…me talking and him grinning.  I know he’s just trying to rile me, and I thank him for it because it lead to a healthy discussion for us mature gals.

In conclusion, I’m too old to stress over the appropriateness of my wardrobe.  I promise not to show too much skin or dress too trashy.  I hope you’ll be honest, and let me know if you think I’ve crossed the line.  That’s what friends are for, right?

Here’s one of my weekend outfits I promised.  Quite colorful…don’t you think?  Reminds me of a fruit plate. 🙂

My Tobi!  He’s so wonderful!

Thank you so much for visiting!!

Jacket: La Via 18               Skirt & Top: BCBGMaxAzria

  1. You always look amazing, classy and chic. You’re the only blogger I have found around my age that looks fabulous, totally inspiring! I think it has a lot to do with staying in shape, you can’t be out of shape or “pudgy” and look great when dressing youthfully. You have to dress for your shape not your age.

    • Oh wow! Thanks Jr!!
      I’m so flattered! I find it more difficult to stay in shape as we age…I do try to eat healthy & exercise (when I can). Hopefully, I can stay fit as long as my body will let me. 🙂

  2. Phenomenal outfit! Truly, it is just SO beautiful, so graceful & feminine, and ultra-chic!! I love the colour combination – that shade of orange in the jacket is gorgeous with your skin tone & features, & works wonderfully against the soft yellow top!! Beautiful 🙂 And Tobi is such a cutie, he’s so adorable – those big brown eyes are making my heart melt!! xoxo

    • Thank you so much!!
      And all I could think of for this outfit was that it looked like a fruit plate! Again, you have an amazing way of describing an outfit! It’s like poetry…at least to me! 🙂

  3. I am craving a scoop or two of sherbet after seeing your bright lemon and tangerine outfit. I know, I am a dork.

    Re: dressing for your age. I do not think you ever, ever cross the line into inappropriate. I have seen women who do and let me tell you, it’s not even debatable that they are dressing way too young and/or way too trashy. I know someone who is 52, wears too tight dresses that barely cover her rear with 4″ pumps and bare legs. That, in my opinion, is inappropriate (maybe even for a 25 year old).

    You are sometimes classic and conservative and sometimes playful but never dress too young or inappropriate.

    Sorry that I have not been by to visit you in some time. Life has been getting in the way of my favorite pastime these days but it’s starting to settle down.

    xoxo, A

    • Hey Adrienne!
      Yes, I’d like some of what you’re having…two scoops please!
      Thank you for your sweet assurance. Maybe I’m thinking too much, which isn’t good. 🙂
      I’ve ventured out a bit since blogging…trying new styles that I would normally shy away from.
      As many ladies have said, life is too short…eat fruit? 🙂
      Glad things are slowing down for you. Have a super week!

  4. Hi Jeannie! Love the outfit, I think orange looks great on you. I am also enjoying watching your yard evolve from winter to spring. Everything is starting to bloom!



  5. I love the combo of orange and yellow, and I think you dress perfectly – and that while age is something to consider when choosing an outfit, it’s not the ultimate deciding factor. You need to wear clothes that make you feel your best!

    • Thanks lyddiegal!
      I could give myself an ulcer if I had to think too hard about being appropriate every time I dressed…I’ve decided it’s not worth the stress. It’s a fine line tho…
      Thanks for visiting and your comment! 🙂

  6. Pretty as always! I love brights with black…which is good because I have sooo much black!!!! Baby Tobi is the perfect satement piece!

  7. I love the lines of the long black skirt. It looks great and I’ve decided there’s not a color that doesn’t look good on you. And it’s nice to see your little buddy out playing with you too. Nothing like the love of our dogs. Have a blessed day!

  8. Nothing age inappropriate about this outfit ! The colors look good with your complexion. A shorter skirt or even slacks would look great.

  9. I love putting pops of color with black…especially since I wear so much of it (black) and it tends to make me a cooler shade of death–in fact, I think I have seen dead people in better form. Having beautiful color around the face does anyone a world of good. ~~Bliss (dead people as in at a funeral not like walking around, living under my bed and such–in today’s world, I think it is best to clarify these things).

  10. A proposal very nice, funny and cool. A beautiful composition. The skirt is gorgeous. The way you wear the shirt is the best. I think you have not crossed any lines. That every day you teach your friends is the beauty, simplicity and elegance of a woman delightfully mature. I hope not to bother you with my definition.

    • Thanks Terri!
      It reminds me of GA Tech Yellow Jackets! My brother’s alma mater…he has so much yellow & black stuff! I figure black goes with pretty much any color, so, why not yellow? 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
