Affordable Fashion for Every Day

Basic

Honesty moment: There are days when I just don’t know what to write. I realize this isn’t a terribly exciting, but it’s nice and basic. I wore this outfit to work, but it would also work for running errands or even a casual dinner. My kind of ensemble, to be sure.

I love all your comments, so please keep them coming!

If you have a minute, would you swing on over and check out my new music site? http://www.reverbnation.com/loriyeary

What I wore:

Navy striped 3/4 sleeve t-shirt: H&M
Pixie skinny ankle pants: Old Navy (You can find them here and they’re on sale!)
Aerosoles brown wedge sandals: DSW

Frugally yours,

Lori

  1. Sometimes nice and basic is just what’s needed. You add some nice accessories and you’re good to go! Love the wedge sandals!

    I’d love to hear how you organize your clothes, shoes, and accessories. I wear a lot of suits to work and have read I should hang the jackets with other jackets, the skirts with skirts, and the pants with pants.

    • Hi Kathleen, I organize my clothes by type and then color. I do separate suit pieces (I don’t have many now) so that I think “outside” the box and don’t get stuck in a rut. When I change out my clothes for a new season, I put all out of season clothes in another closet, then turn my hangars backwards as I put the current season clothes on the rods. This way, at the end of a season anything I haven’t worn is reevaluated to see if I still really need/want it. I hope this helps!

  3. I love stripes because they add interest to an outfit without all the trouble! I absolutely love your hair style. I’m dying to see the back. Is it layered?

    • Thanks, Melody! I’ll try to get a good photo of the back of my hair the next time I get it trimmed. It is in longer layers – which really helps since my hair is very thick and a bit coarse in texture. I have it thinned as well. I wrestled with getting bangs cut last fall and I’m so glad I did! I think they frame my face much better and give it a little more interest. I’ve had fun playing with different styles, so I love the flexibility!

  4. Love the wedges. I’m not a huge fan of khaki or tan pants. Perhaps it’s my love of color that makes those colors seem so uniform.

    What are you thoughts on options other than skinny jeans. I have heavy thighs so skinny is bad for me but that is all I am finding in the stores. Am I stuck with thrift store shopping for relaxed fit?

  5. Hi Lori! Just found your blog and am happy to find a fashion blog for women over fifty. I’m 55, and run like you. I also quilt and paddleboard. Check out my blog at http://www.rachelmhblog.blogspot.com. We seem to have a lot in common. I’m sure I can get some fashion advice from you. Thanks!

    • Hi Rachel! Thanks so much for reading the blog! I checked out your blog and you look as active as I am – which is great for keeping us young. I am a quilter as well (my mom-in-love taught me how to hand quilt years ago), but haven’t done any lately. Maybe you’ll inspire me to pick it up again this winter!
