Linking Up With The Pleated Poppy - Week 2

It's What I Wore Wednesday over at The Pleated Poppy, so I'm linking up with Lindsay and the rest of her peeps.  Someone has to represent fashion for the over 50 crowd, and it might as well be me.


I'm going to breakfast with a friend this morning and I'm taking advantage of my last few chances to wear sweaters.  I never know what to wear in Spring weather, do you?  It starts out cold, and before you know it, it's roasting hot outside.   No matter, I can always change, can't I?


Picked up the pink cardigan last week while I was in  Arizona --  H&M for $15.00!  Do they have great deals or what!  Top is from Down East Basics -- I think it was on sale for about $20.00.   


There is so much going on with the top, that I didn't want to add too much as  far as jewelry.  So, I used a vintage pin on the sweater, and whipped up a fairly neutral chandelier necklace and a pair of neutral earrings that I'll be listing in my shop this weekend (in case you want one of your own.)




(Why do my eyes always look like I'm insane when I take self photos?  Kind of embarrassing.  I promise, I'm only a little bit insane.)


Last, but not least, my favorite Target high heel shoes -- $18.00.  My family was shocked when they saw me wearing these for the first time.   I never wear anything but flats.




And that, my friends, is what I am wearing today -- at least for a little while.  I might have to throw on a t-shirt this afternoon for my an appointment with the vacuum.

You look adorable! I had no idea you are 50. You look much younger.

I am almost 53 and I love seeing women my age on here. One of these days I am going to jump in myself, lol!

BTW, I have a three pairs of converse, I believe, and I wear them all!

I have those Target shoes too and always get a range of comments. They are actually surprisingly comfortable except one little spot on my right big toe. Time to pull 'em out!
