Stepping out to do a little shopping today and stepping out of my comfort zone again with a Friday Fashion and Beauty Over 50 post. Did you read THIS ONE that was my first fashion post, with a little beauty mixed in? With the fall weather on it's way here hopefully soon in South Florida and already in session in many places, it's time to bring out the jean jacket and booties. I'm not going to lie...when I'm home working I often am dressed in yoga pants with a tee shirt and flip flops, but when I go out I do enjoy putting on some layers and the make up. Comfort is key for me, so you won't find me in the gorgeous high pumps that some can wear. I'm over that and booties are such a fabulous look and feel for fall! I have a few pics to talk about today and a discount code unique to my blog, so read on for more!here.
FASHION OVER 50
My husband shot these images of me today as we were heading out, and he complimented me on the look. I'm dressed in a pretty feminine tunic top from GLAMOUR FARMS called The Cameron. I LOVE wearing tunic tops at this age because they help to hide what you may not want seen and most everyone who is over 50 has a little something/something that they didn't have at a younger age. Even my super fit husband who still wears the same size that he wore as a teenager!
The Cameron is lightweight and sleeveless, so it's perfect for layering and the coral color is so on trend for fall. It has ruffle trim with gathered detailing, ivory lace throughout, a scoop neckline and a back keyhole button closure. The fit is very generous and I'm wearing a size large (and normally wear a 10/12 and am around 5'6"). The price is under $40 and I have a discount code for you below.
The leggings are also from GLAMOUR FARMS and are something that I will be LIVING IN this fall and winter. They have a tummy tuck high waistband and are appropriately named the AHH-MAZING TUMMY TUCK ANKLE LEGGINGS. I have lots of leggings in my wardrobe from many different companies and at all price points, and I will have to count these in among my favorites for comfort and PRICE at just $27. They are a one size fits most from XS to XLG and they fit well and pull it all in ;-)) Ahh-mazing.
The jean jacket is my own and the handbag above is by Kate Spade (because I know you want to know). A great pair of booties like the MATISSE CAMILIA and you are set to go out for a fun and comfy day.
GLAMOUR FARMS has generously offered the SHABBYFUFU readers a one time discount code for $10 OFF on purchases over $20 (not including sale items). Just enter the code SHABBYFUFU258 at checkout. Maybe you want to try out those amazing leggings...they come in lots of colors and I really think that you'll be as happy as I am.
BEAUTY OVER 50Now on to beauty with some products that make a difference for me!
I feel like as one get's a little bit older that it's more important than ever to try and achieve beauty from the inside out. I go for my yearly check-ups, regular dental cleanings, and have been a user of bio-identical hormone therapy for sometime now. My last couple of bloodworks have indicated that I'm low on Vitamin D...as in VERY LOW. You wouldn't think so, since I live in South Florida and get PLENTY of sun...so strange. I was not able to easily digest the pill form of Vitamin D and my doctor wanted me on 50,000 mg a day, which is a lot. She actually suggested that I try liquid drops and I've been using the product above for about 6 months now. I am healthy and feel good and am curious to see how my next bloodwork comes out, but what I CAN say is that my fingernails have not been this healthy and strong in maybe EVER!! I have to say that it's the BLUEBONNET VITAMIN D DROPS and I'm recommending them today.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation is the best foundation that I have found for my skin. I have oily skin and live in a humid and hot climate and it does not melt or cake and has an SPF factor of 15. I can't say enough good things about this product from TARTE and although it's not the most inexpensive it lasts for a long, long time and I just LOVE it.
L'ANZA HEALING COLOR CARE TRAUMA TREATMENT after shampooing the condition of my hair is so much better than it used to be! You get what you pay for in hair products I've found and this can be used after shampooing and rinsed out or a dab on your hands massaged into the hair and left in.
I hope that you enjoyed the post and let me know if you have any questions about what I've shared today.
