How to wear faux-leather leggings…make sweet potatoes…and save on beautiful gifts

Fall clothing Inspiration on over 50 Feeling 40

One silver lining from spending time on the Internet is to discover new inspiration for styling, cooking and shopping. 

Today, I want to show you how I was inspired to wear a different look with my faux leather leggings, make sweet potatoes (with bourbon!) a new way,  and save on quality gifts!

Also, extra savings just for readers of this blog!!

How to wear faux leather leggings on over 50 Feeling 40

I follow a couple of Australian ladies (Linda & Leanne) on Instagram called ThiswithThis.  I screenshot the look when first shown some time ago and put it in my INSPIRATION FOR FALL folder on my computer.

When I saw this look, I immediately thought…I can do that…right now…with pieces I already own.  I love to be inspired by others!!

My only regret here is that I am missing the touch of olive green she is wearing…but I like this and after I put it together, I wore it out.  Here are my details and I have owned all of these for awhile:

The topper and faux leather leggings are both originally from Soft Surroundings.

Black V-neck top is JJill

The necklace is from Chico’s

The leather sneakers are from Rockport. 

It is worth the time to look around at other women in search of ideas to style pieces we already own… Pinterest is perfect for that!

INSPIRATION FOR AN EASY THANKSGIVING DISH

Sweet Potato Dish on over 50 Feeling 40

 

Perhaps you are looking for inspiration for a new way to serve Sweet Potatoes over the holidays.  Leigh Ann sent along her family-favorite Special Bourbon Sweet Potatoes.

Ingredients:

2 Cans  (1 lb 13 oz each) sweet potatoes, drained (I cook mine, but it is easy to make that adjustment)

1/2 cup melted butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup orange juice

1 egg

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup bourbon of choice (might I recommend the Texas bourbons, such as Rebecca Creek!)

Topping:

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup light brown sugar

Instructions:

Beat drained sweet potatoes until fluffly.  Beat in remaining ingredients.  Place in an oven-proof casserole.  Mix pecans and brown sugar and spread over the top. 

Bake at 350 Degrees for 30-40 minutes until completely heated.

  1. I do like how you styled your leggings. I don’t know what it is about leather leggings…maybe their edginess…but I love them! It seems if you search for outfit components or certain styles, Pinterest has a wealth of information! I use it frequently when I am looking for new ways to wear what I have, or to find inspiration for a specific event. Your topper is beautiful! I like that it is sheer. The sweet potatoes sound delicious! The addition of the bourbon and nuts would really make them special. Thank you for sharing recipes…I’m saving some of these ideas!

  2. You look fantastic in the outfit you pulled together from your closet! I love that you found things you already had in your collection and made it work so beautifully.
    The sweet potato casserole sounds like it will be the hit of the meal! Happy Thanksgiving to your and yours.

  3. Your inspired outfit looks great, Pam! I’ve been similarly inspired by some of the bloggers I follow and photos I’ve found on Pinterest. In fact, just this morning I combined two pieces from my closet for the first time after seeing a similar outfit on one of my favourite blogs. Women inspiring women! I love it!

  4. I love what you put together and your inspiration! I have a similar outfit in navy and I just ordered a dress in a dark green and navy print I plan to wear like your inspiration! Love your ideas!!
