We had a slightly cool spell, so I took the opportunity to wear a bright cotton cardigan today. It was a find at the “new” JCPenney’s. Their monthly sales can be awesome, with markdowns as low as $4 — and that’s what I paid for this ruffled cardi!
I mixed it with an orangey-pinky floral skirt by Odille (some similar on eBay), thrifted for just a few dollars. A plain black camisole and my favorite black Sofft booties finished the look. Bare legs again, and leg grooming was required. I miss you, tights!

I’ve been doing two outfit posts per week for many months, one on Thursday and of course, one for Visible Monday. I’m thinking of reducing that to just Visible Monday. My closet clean-out and less-is-more philosophy are making “new” looks more challenging, and I don’t want to bore you with the same-olds. I am not at all bored, but I realize you can only view my black booties and full skirts so many times before you, well, yawn.
I still have plenty to say about style, beauty, aging, ageism, the meaning of life (it’s 42!) and general streams of consciousness. And I still love looking at your outfits when you post them. And, on the third hand, I might change my mind and post a boatload of outfit pics in two weeks. But I am taking a small photo break, and giving my handsome photographer a vacation too.
I wish you all a festive Friday!
