It’s the end of summer. I know for some of us the weather is still very warm. That said, we can add pieces to summer styles to take them into Fall.
For example – Hooded sweatshirts. My new favorite!
Long or cropped in length it all works.
This lightweight navy hoodie from Old Navy works well when the temps just begin to go down.
(on sale for $7.99)
So many different ways to wear one. Layered over a shirt like this one I saw in a Nordstrom ad.
(Hoodie from Mango $39.00)
(White button-down shirt)
This tunic length hoodie can be worn by itself or over something.
A younger me would have worn this!!
But now I would pick one of these options.
(Hoodie – H&M $24.99)
Or even layered under a denim jacket for cooler temperature times when you still don’t yet need a coat.
There are so many options to try.
Go see what you can come up with.
I would love to hear your ideas.
UNTIL NEXT TIME
It is finally that time of year when summer meets autumn. I love the fall. The colors are bright. The days are still warm but, the nights are beginning to cool down.
It’s a great time to take some summer fashions into fall. Everywhere you look styles are changing. But who wants to buy everything new?
While volunteering last week at Dress For Success I decided to try out a trend I have been noticing.
Wearing a crop top over a shirt.
All summer I saw cropped styled tops. I am so too old for them but…. I can always find a way!
What do you think?
It shows a new fun look. I got a lot of compliments from the other ladies. I’d say it was a good idea.
Here’s some more examples I found surfing through the fashion mags and on-line sites.
Now the crop top I am wearing is a type of corset top. Spandex and cotton.
Ready for this? I bought it at Forever 21 and it was only $5.00. I also bought this one (again $5).
It’s a knit material. Lightweight and comfortable.
It’s also a fun way to add to a plain white button-down shirt.

The versatility of this is how many combinations: slacks, jeans, and even skirts you can mix.
So whether you are going to work, going out for fun, on a date, or with friends you can style this trend.
Even us 40, 50, & 60’s group can.
