Today, Monday is starting out cold with some snow and ice on the ground but sunny skies. It is supposed to reach about 47 F this afternoon then go below freezing tonight.
I am a retired elementary school teacher and DH is retired, so casual.
DH likes for us to go someplace each day. Often watching the grandchildren who are toddlers is another daily activity. This all means I need to be ready to go at a moments notice and be ready and able to crawl on the floor. Today we will probably go to a medical lecture on heart valve replacement.
Despite a casual life, I like a dressy style.
Other clothing rules are no sandals or heels and easy, quick access to my stomach for insulin injections 4 times a day. I also need a bag big enough to tote medical supplies and emergency food, a shopping bag ( area stores expect you to bring your own), and the usual purse stuff. I try to be minimal but usually need at least a satchel.
I am 72 years old, grey hair, and 5’3” tall,
small boned, a rectangle with definite apple tendencies.
Today’s outfit is quite “me” because I like to mix in thrift, consignment, and low end with pricier items. Here the jacket and trousers are thrifted, the tee is Ted Baker and I used my red Kate Spade bag. The trousers are probably the only pair I have, are wool, lined, and side zip Dana Bucanan... a brand from the past. I wore red coral dangly earrings Do you have any ideas for improving the outfit? Your thoughts and comments are welcomed. I will add outfits to this thread this week.
