I Don't Want To Be Famous I Just Want Out of My Pajamas

Why is it so difficult for a woman over 40, well okay if you're going to be picky, over 50 to find an article on fashion that's suitable?  

To be honest I'm getting stuck in a rut.  I don't go as much as I used to and I'm finding myself a lot more comfortable in my pajamas than clothes.  How do you still look good at home?  Do you have a fashion style at home?  Would you be embarrassed to have a neighbor pop over?  

For the past, I don't know how many years, we have remodeled the house, landscaped the yard and anything nice or at least decent I didn't want to wear around here and ruin.  Now I've gained weight and need new clothes.  How can I dress comfortable with out going to the old ladies department or the Blair catalog (no offense if you shop there).  All I want to wear is elastic waist bands, at least at home.  I also want it loose and comfy but am tired of not looking put together anymore.  So if you have tips or want to share, I sure would like to hear how you deal with it.

I did think this was a cute and cool (as in weather wise) dress.  I'm not sure where I found this one.
I swear it seems like it's been as close to impossible to find what I want when I go on the search engines.  I always end up being there forever.  My actual request was just to find, wear around the house and errand clothing.  Yeah, these shorts are a little short for me.  And even that's getting difficult because I'm petite and look really short in long shorts but at 50 plus you don't want to be out in really short ones.

   I believe I got the next two on Newport News or maybe Talbots but I'm not sure.
I love this pop of color with the khaki.  The next pair of shorts look like just the right length. But to be honest I could only wear that coral top if I was going to be in a/c all day.  Way to hot here to wear much more than tanks and tees here in Florida.  Which leads back to the question, how do you look pulled together when you have to keep clothing to a minimum.
This last outfit is one I put together myself at the Target website.  I just found that.  It's so cool!  It lets you put your own outfits together.  You pick the top and bottom (or dress), shoes and accessories. And then you save it to their page and you can share it with others by putting it on facebook or your blog.  You can even view what everyone else puts together. What a great way to shop! 


 Ya'll have a beautiful, cheery day.
Hugs...Tracy :)


  1. I am all about dresses in the summertime... so easy to throw on with flip flops or wedges. My go-to look even when i don't need to look put together.
    Cool feature at Target-- I'll have to check it out! xoxo

  2. I prefer looking nice every day whether in jeans, slacks or whatever. I sleep in nightgowns & dress immediately upon rising. Sandals in the summer. I don't wear the old lady clothes by a long shot. The younger attire has more color, better designs & prettier clothes ... love style.

    Have a beautiful week ~
