Fashion Over 50-Khaki & Denim Fall Casual Part 1

I am sorry it has been so long since I have done a fashion post. I have been super busy with my real job and these fashion posts are time consuming. I don’t know about you but I love Khaki and Denim.  I love it even more when there is a little leopard thrown in.  Madewell and J Crew are my go to sources for casual wear.  Their clothes seem to consistently fit me properly.  If I want something interesting or special I head to Artful Home.  I will be posting about their exciting fall collection next month; you are going to love their new collection.
Here on the Central Coast we don’t really have a fall. I really miss that time of year. August, September, and October are our nicest months.  It does cool off in the evenings as the days get shorter so a jacket is sometimes in order. I love this Ruffle Chino Jacket  from J Crew.  It can be worn year round in our climate.  Add my favorite Long Sleeve Shine Crew Tee, from Michael Stars, that is just a little more polished looking than your average tee (a little pricier but much longer wearing) .  Pair them with (the splurge in this group) the Dl1961 Margaux Instasculpt Ankle Skinny Jeans, the inexpensive leopard print scarf from Sole Society, the BP Demi Slide (on sale), and Kate Spade’s Crossbody Bag.

It’s Not Your Mother’s Table Skirt

I was never a fan of the voluptuous table skirts of the past bearing heavy bullion fringe. They never seemed very sophisticated but rather a fill in for a nicer piece of furniture.   I am on board with the more current tailored look; that can blend with almost any style. An old piece of furniture can be upgraded with a pretty fabric and or a pretty trim. They can be covered in an indoor outdoor fabric for ease of care.I currently have a client that wants to keep her skirted table.  Here are some great examples that don’t shout granny.

In Living Color - Designer Anna Spiro

Brisbane based Anna Spiro of Black and Spiro is no stranger to color or pattern.  She is not afraid to layer multiple colors and patterns with antiques and modern art. Her attention to detail and love of the unique and unusual combine for a look that appears haphazard; but is actually carefully curated. Doesn't she look as chic as her interiors?
Anna Spiro, interior designer.
Here is a peek at some of her wonderful designs.
