Fashion Over 50: What to Wear Work Day to Casual Evening Out

Last week I faced one of those over 50 what-to-wear-dilemmas when I had to go from my professional setting to a casual evening night out.  We were honored to be asked to an intimate gathering to hear an on the rise to big fame, Nashville singer, JENNA PAULETTE. (who is super talented, by the way).

I chose to go with this Asian-inspired, peplum jacket from Chico’s.  It had a style I liked which worked well for work and for evening.  I could easily wear it with denim, but for the work day wore my So Slimming Chico’s pants.  

I did not wear a necklace underneath because the jacket had so much going on in the front.  So my bracelet from Soft Surroundings was my jewelry of choice.

I chose these Halogen flats I purchased a couple of years ago during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  The brown in these shoes matched the color of the Chicos tank I wore underneath the jacket.  

Usually I would wear jeans or black denim to such an event, but this worked well for both.  I have the jacket, pants and similar styles below…

And Jenna is amazing…I know we will see a lot more of her in the future.

Happy Weekend!
