Mash-up; Mix-up





I'm making this post SPECIAL for Visible Monday!  I've missed all my over 40 blogger friends due to my hiatus from blogging and had to just stop by to say "Hi"!~

In the meantime, I have been posting pictures on Instagram, which is great as it is so easy but I am probably the only one over-50 posting  OOTD photos.  And consequently, I am totally invisible.  Or if I get attention, it may not be positive. (Like the young boy that jokingly said, "look what I found".....  Hmmm.)

Onto my outfits.  My theme for the week was mixing patterns; something that I did get away from over the summer. (I just stuck to bright colors then.)  I've found that graphic prints work best for me.  The last combo was a suggestion from Lucky Mag, to combine like patterns.

For the future, I would like to have a blog-azine type blog for all of us over fifty!  See you soon~

  2. It's so good to see you blogging again. You look terrific, but I especially like the photo in the orange-y red (may be my computer monitor) jacket and gladiator-style sandals. You are a 15 on a 10 scale :) I'll be 50 in 3 months!

      that jacket is orange; a pleather jacket and loved it so much I bought another one. (Nordstrom Rack; $45.00)

  5. Cant wait to hear about the blogazine. I definitely fit the over 50 age category and your photos on this post have inspired me to get back into some photo posts. Your bogazine sounds like a great inspirational tool. What I have found is my looks are great for running around town and getting compliments bur do not come across as editorial when I take my photo. I barely can take time to do it with my tripod just in my living room let alone think I am going to run all over town trying to capture interesting shots. I need much more practice taking my photos and much more inspiration than just posting it on my blog. Does this make sense?

    1. Absolutley! Exactly what I am thinking; an inspirational tool.

      There are lots of apps to make your photos more fun, if you are taking them with your iphone, which i find is sooo much more fun. I bought an adaptor for my tripod for my phone too!

      I know what you mean tho, about finding the right spot for pics. I got so sick of taking photos of myself. And I was doing it before work and rushing. I'm taking them after work now.

      so check back tomorrow--blogazine's first appearance!
