Fashion Over 60 and Celebrating August
Hello everyone! I hope your week has gone well and you are eagerly anticipating an enjoyable weekend. Today, I want to share a little style with you under the heading of, "What I Really Wore." The pink sweater and blue top you see in the above pic is what I really wore to a doctor's appointment this morning.
I am a really big fan of classic sweaters. And I discovered they are hard to find!! So, when I found this classic style in various colors at a GREAT price, I stocked up! The soft, lightweight fabric and pearl buttons may say "old fashioned" to some. But, to me, this style is comfortable and can go well with so many outfits. I usually wear a sweater of some type as I like something on my arms and these sweaters are just perfect. If you are local, they still have these sweaters at Hamrick's.
I did not wear the jeans to the appointment, but changed into them when I got home. I wanted to share the jeans with you, however, because I am so pleased to have found this pair! You all know I enjoy thrifting and I found these jeans at a new place that I just love. It is the Humane Society Shop in our area! They just moved next to Mr. K's if you are local and trying to find the shop. They offer the BEST deals on books, household items and clothing and the proceeds go to support the animals. I am more than happy to support this store! On Wednesdays, they have 50% off all clothing. The jeans would have been $5 regularly but I got them for $2.50. Oh, how I love a good bargain!! I figured if they didn't fit I would only have been out $2.50 and it would have been for a good cause but they fit really well! I've bought a few pieces of clothing from this shop now and am quite happy with my purchases and with supporting the Humane Society.
And you know who this sweet girl is! Cassie wanted to say hello to all of you. She also would like you to know that she, too, supports the Humane Society!
Our cats are indoor cats only but The Mr. likes to bring Cassie out on the porch sometimes and let her see the outdoors. He holds her tightly when he does this. Of course, she loves sniffing the air and looking all around and then, when she is inside at the screen door and we are outside, she meows at us and tries to climb the screen door. I am not wholeheartedly in favor of bringing her outdoors to sniff the air. The Mr. and I sometimes disagree on cat parenting, lol!!
Reasons to Celebrate in August
This kind of quietly went unnoticed, mainly because I forgot myself, but the blog has entered into its sixth year. I can't believe that I have been blogging for six years! The pic you see above was taken six years ago when we were out west and I was contemplating starting a blog of my own after reading and enjoying other people's blogs for so long. I finally got brave and used another pic from this same trip on my very first post that went live on July 31st, 2015! I plan to write a longer post about the blog's birthday later this month but I didn't want this important date to go by without acknowledging it. Yes, officially July is the birthday month but July 31st is ALMOST August, right?!
I'm also celebrating each of you....my very dear readers...in this month of August. After all, even though Garden is an amazing blogging assistant, I still couldn't produce this wonderful blog if it wasn't for all of you who read it and leave comments and cheer me on!
And, I have something to ask of each of you, Ok? I would LOVE it if each reader would leave me a comment letting me know what you enjoy reading about on Debbie Styles Life and what you would like to see on the blog in the future. That will help me to plan posts in the next year.
Even if you have never left a comment before, I would like your input. If, for some reason, you don't want to leave a comment visible on the blog you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can't wait to hear from each of you!
Until Next Time,
