Over 50 Fashion; One Tunic Two Ways

I just ordered this fabulous tunic from Artful Home.  I think it is one of the best additions to my wardrobe I have added recently.  It is a crinkly linen so it doesn’t wrinkle (very packable), the color is heavenly, and it can be worn multiple ways.  I have already worn it several times.

The Portofino Tunic from Carol Turner for Artful Home is pure heaven. The Melish Cloche Hat looks a lot like a much more expensive brand for a lot less.  The Hue Capri leggings are comfy and a great value.  If you are looking for a great beach read “Slightly South of Simple” hits the mark.  I love books about Southern Women and their relationships and there is a little surprise if you are of a certain age.  If you are looking for a flip flop with some arch support that doesn’t look clunky you will love the Olukai Ho Opio. They also come in every color imaginable.  I just ordered them and am planning to order in other colors as well. Love the pretty metallic beach bag from Anthropologie and who doesn’t love a great pair of Ray Bans.

By the way coming  late April Elizabeth and I will be beginning an every other month ageless style series featuring women with great style. In the meantime stop by Elizabeth’s blog.  It will bring a smile to your face. I may be out of the loop for a bit...hopefully I am getting my hip replaced tomorrow!!


  1. hip replaced? poor you cindy, may the pain be minimal.

    great look and love how you pull all elements together. speedy recovery!

  2. Cindy,

    Good luck with your surgery. I just spoke to a good friend that has had both done and said it was pretty smooth sailing and so worth it.

    Love your fashion series always. I'll look forward to the series.

  3. Hey Cindy - Good luck with your surgery! I had my left hip done the middle of December (my right was done a few years ago) and I cannot tell you how wonderful the change has been. A couple of tips - eventhough you might feel fabulous, do not over do it in the beginning, and do your physical therapy and recommended exercizes religiously! I'll be thinking of you.

  4. As I fell asleep I thought of YOU!All will be fine.....................YOUR CHEERING SQUAD IS HERE!
    As soon as you feel up to chatting give me a SIGN!
    Best of LUCK today.............XX

  5. It's ok to be hip. Will be thinking of you and wishing you all the best. We all know you look good and now we're glad you are on your way to feeling that way, too.

  6. Praying for you! Loved this post. I want everything.

  7. Good Luck, Cindy. I will keep you in my prayers.

  8. It doesn't seem fair that we are shopping for the cute things on your blog and you are having surgery. Bill and I are hoping and praying for smooth sailing and a fast turnaround.

  9. Cindy, you look gorgeous, and I am hoping you are recovering nicely without issue. Sending light as I type these words. Loving the neutral picks. These are the "colors" I'm most comfy in even though I look washed out! I need to buy some new things--those flip flops! Never met a pair I didn't like...I'm a beach girl all the way. xox

  10. Hi Everyone had the surgery this morning @7:39 so far so good. Walked down hall no pain only taking extra strength Tylenol!! I am sure tomorrow will be harder!!

  11. Congrtulations on a sucessful surgery!

  12. Glad to hear you are on the mend! Take it easy…..

  13. So happy to hear it went well, Cindy! You couldn't look more adorable in the tunic!
