Hey everyone! Let me just say this blog will always be about fashion for women over 40 who have apple shapes. I was concerned I may have led you to believe on Monday that I was abandoning that aspect of the blog. No way! I love fashion and showing women how they can get that boost of confidence a good outfit can bring. That will always be my mission. I’m just trying to think of new ways to get that message out there to all the women who haven’t found this space yet.
So, with that in mind, I wanted to get your feedback. My dear friend Denise suggested I look into podcasting. This was also brought up at the blogging conference. I’m intrigued by it since I’ve just started listening to a couple of podcasts myself, plus I love pushing myself to learn something new.
What do you ladies think? Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones? What kind of topics would you want to hear about? I’m thinking it could be about fashion, midlife, empty-nesting, menopause, but I wonder if I’d have enough interesting ideas or guests to talk with to keep it sustained. I’d love to hear your ideas and input in the comments section.
Ok! Onto clothes…
You’ve seen these pants before, my “danger pants”, and I love wearing them in the spring and fall because the fabric is great for weather that can be cold one hour and hot the next. It’s a bit too chilly to have bare legs here, but I’m so ready to free my ankles for spring, so this length of pants works really well. They also have them in plus size in a pretty gray.
I like to balance out these pants with a more fitted, boxy top. As you know, I don’t want anything tight on top but if the top was flowey like the pants are, it would have a more relaxed, artistic look. That would be a nice look for a weekend or casual night out but to make this outfit a little more professional, or work appropriate, a boxier top was what I was looking for.
This jacket has structure with all the sewing, collars, zipper and buttons to make it a boxy fit but the fabric is light and has stretch (and zips!). This jacket will easily work into summer too.
I really love these shoes in the spring and fall too because it’s still covering my foot and keeping them warm but my toes are peeping out a bit and my foot is getting some exposure too. I like the beige color to lighten things up for warmer weather but they have the same shoe in black too.
And Monday’s post was so heartening to me since so many of you took the time to comment. I hope to always make you feel welcome to comment and to have dialogue with me and other readers. Thanks for that!
On a side note, you may be surprised to see all this greenery and flowers around me but that is because I am down in North Carolina again. The blogging conference I went to this weekend was down here which was one of the reasons I decided to do it. It had been four weeks since I saw my husband (and two of my cats! I know. two more!) so this worked out perfectly.
Ok, that’s it. I’d love to hear your thoughts about the podcasts so don’t forget to comment below.
See you Friday!
