What I Wore ~ Fashion over 40

I remember when ankle boots first came out.  I thought they were the strangest things ever…

But, I guess after seeing thousands of outfits with them, I began to get used to their look, and decided I’d jump right in ~ with both feet!  (pun intended!)

I researched and researched “how to wear ankle boots”.  I discovered they are most often worn with skinny legged jeans or even dresses and skirts.

I’m into jeans these days, so that’s what I wear them with.   Simple and comfortable ~ that’s key for me.

I’ve also learned through my foray into fashion research that “half tucking” your shirt is the thing to do these days…

I’m trying to like it.  Really, I am.  But, in reality, I think it feels strange and it lasts about 3 seconds flat…

So, tell me, what kind of outfits are you enjoying these days?  Better yet, set up your tripod and take a picture of it and send it my way!

And, could you please pass on your secrets of how to take good pictures of yourself?  I find it incredibly tricky ~ especially in the focus department.  Yikes!  Maybe someday I should do a post on the “outtakes”…

Have a great day, Pretty Ladies!

  1. I’m with you, I had the hardest time getting used to the ankle boots. But now I really like them! This is a lovely outfit on you and I like the pattern mixing. Taking pictures is the hardest part – yours look great!
