I follow your blog all the time even though I’m well over 40, actually 67 but I like to be thought of as somewhat fabulous. I’d love some help with my upcoming 50th High School Reunion. Dress is “business casual”?
I sew and I made a jacket (reunion pic #5) for the occasion but I think it’s a little too much. So, I’ve been going through my closet to find something more comfortable and appropriate.
A fan, Leslie.
P.S. You have my permission to post my question and these photos on your site.
You are certainly fabulous and I’m happy to share your photos! I like your outfit #4 with the long grey sweater because it shows off your adorable figure and is the most youthful looking, but I also think you look stunning in the gold jacket and it would make you stand out in a crowd.
If you did go with the gold jacket, I think it needs a different shoe. The rounded toe seems a little too casual so maybe one with a little heel and more of a pointy toe. The long grey sweater looks chic, but the gold jacket is pure Glam! Either would look great.
As for the long black skirt in outfit #1, I suggest you retire that, as it is matronly compared to these other cute outfits. The white jacket in #5 – yes I agree, it’s too much. Also the jacket seems to make your arms look rather short and makes you look heavy up top, at least in this photo.
I also love the smart olive green jacket with the cuffs in outfit #3, but I wouldn’t wear it for the reunion – not enough color.
Leslie, you are beautiful and a real inspiration. Have fun and I hope I’ve helped.
