Scalloped Shorts + Lace-Up Top (& Ageless Style Linkup)

Happy Independence Day to my US readers! It's time for the monthly Ageless Style Linkup! Each month, one of the over-40 bloggers in our group chooses a theme and we all show different ways to wear it. This month Jennie, from A Pocketful of Polka Dots, chose the theme Shorts! 

There are plenty of articles out there saying that women over a certain age should not wear shorts, however, I completely disagree. Shorts are a summer staple and with the variety of lengths and styles available, you can still rock a pair of shorts no matter what your age! Make sure you stop by all of these lovely bloggers in our group to see how they are styling their summer shorts!

#CreateYourSunshine #WetSkinIsBestSkin #CollectiveBias


I swim several days a week, and with that, my skin always feels parched and damaged from the chlorine. Even after I shower my skin still feels dry, so I moisturize my body religiously. It's no secret that I have pale skin but gone are the days where I will sit outside and bake in the sun. Now, I'm more careful, and want to slow down the wrinkles and stop the skin damage. So once summer hits, I also use a self tanner to get my skin summer ready. I've used Jergens® Natural Glow® products for the past several years.

What to Wear with Mint Jeans (& Ageless Style Linkup)

I'm excited to be joining the lovely ladies of the monthly Ageless Style Linkup! Each month, one of the over-40 bloggers in our group chooses a theme and we all show different ways to wear it. This month Daenel, from Living Outside the Stacks, chose the theme Pastels.

The timing could not have been more perfect because I have been on the hunt for mint colored jeans for almost two years. I finally came across this pair at Old Navy! They are slightly distressed, have some stretch to them and are really comfy.

When I first put this outfit together, I had layered my navy sweater over a white button down, accessorized with a neck scarf and was considering oxfords for a more preppy look. My outfit took a 180 degree turn and I paired the sweater with a mint striped scarf and my leopard slip-ons for a fun weekend look. I think these mint jeans will also look great with a coral top as the weather warms up. I can see lots of styling options and they'll definitely be on repeat all spring and summer!
