How to dress up denim on Over 50 Feeling 40

With everyone thinking casual, at-home style lately, let’s discuss our jeans and how to dress them up when needed and add an exquisite touch of James Avery Craftsman jewelry!  I can remember years ago when jeans were the ultimate casual wear.  We would never have considered wearing them to work or out for a nice evening.  Jeans were around the house wear…in the garden wear…or camping clothes.  Then it seemed in the late 80s and early 90s, they began to appear on women with pearls and classic suit jackets…then the trouser jean hit the fashion scene and went to work…then they appeared at church and in evening wear…and now….jeans are in for every occasion and come in every color, shape and style!

I still have my outside-with-a-tee jeans, but I love wearing denim almost anywhere.  Today, I am wearing my white denim from Chico’s and being a little flashy with my recent on-sale-Dillards-purchase of this IC Collection poncho style top.  Jeans are great to wear in the summer and so many are available in lighter fabrics to withstand the heat.

I can do so much with a fun top like this and go almost anywhere…including a lovely summer wedding if I style it with nice black trousers or even a pencil skirt!  The only reason I am being a little sassy here and waving up my arm is to show you what this longer sleeve looks like.  Very pretty.  It is a sheet top, so it arrives with a black tank to wear underneath.  Sheer is a style trend for 2020…and we need a little fun this year…right?

One of the reasons I purchased this top is because of this necklace.  Mr. B brought it to me from a trip he took to Alaska to run a marathon. He returned with two necklaces and I love them both.  This one seems made for this top as it has all of the same colors in it!

I also want to introduce you to a new friend I have made in a Facebook group.  Her name is Kelly and she is a huge fan of Chico’s and mostly wears their clothing.  Her denim look also includes a sheer top, tank underneath and jeans… all from Chicos.  She looks great and is a perfect example of how to dress up your jeans!  She even has on the pearls.  But, speaking of timeless jewelry…..

Many of you already know that I am a brand ambassador for James Avery Craftsman Jewelry and I have worn and gifted their jewelry for over 35 years.  These are exquisite, timeless pieces that you will wear your whole life and even hand down to family.  I love every piece I own.  Today, for Mother’s Day consideration, I wanted to show you these beauties…as soon as my nails are done, I am wearing these out somewhere just to celebrate!

In Texas, we love our turquoise and wear it often!  I think that is why this Marjan Turquoise Ring is a new favorite of mine. It is a beauty with the subtle mixture of bronze and sterling silver.  That is why I am thrilled to wear it with the Multi-layered Cuff Bracelet which also features the mixture of bronze and sterling silver.  They look so lovely together….I will show you soon when I have pretty nails!  Right now James Avery is offering 20% off your order for Mother’s Day and free shipping.  There are so many pieces I could recommend…you really cannot go wrong and you will please any woman with what you select.

Now, have I completely dated myself by remembering jeans as yard-wear and not everywhere-wear?  Do you remember those days as well?  How do you like to wear your jeans?  

I have some fun selections in the Fabulous Finds slideshow today!  Thanks so much for being here!  Also, thanks to everyone who ordered GOLI APPLE CIDER CHEWIES yesterday…I think you will be pleased….remember when you are ready to place orders or re-oder, please use this link ORDER GOLI HERE.

Remember, in our social distancing world, your smile is the way you send hugs! 

KEEP SMILING and hugging…yes, even through the mask, our eyes tell a story!
