Loving Life after 50

Pearls and Leopard

Mediums, patterns, doesn’t really matter what I touch lately I love mixing.  Give me a little leopard and inevitably lately I want to add pearls, then maybe some leather.  Biker chick meets Social Chic meets Jackie K’s clone ( ok not really but you get the picture right?)
Today I am flashing back to an outfit from last week I never got to show you, and thank heaven because this weekend I was a tad busy at #SparkSessions, a post or two that I will be working on for you.  Loved this conference and the opportunity to met some Canadian Bloggers and two of my dare I say it “over 40″blogging idols.
On the train back home I had a ton of ideas floating through my head of how to take you through the conference with me and I think I will run a little series on not just the conference but on all the wonderful sponsors. ( I will take you through the agenda and all the great events they had planned)
For today however you are stuck with me and my outfit of choice. I am not sure about the rest of you but me I sometimes have a hard time picking which shoes I want to wear…..and trust me with the excessive amount I own picking one can be a chore. I, for the record. have never been that gal that can take one pair of shoes away, not even just two most times.  I am proud of myself that I only took two pairs of boots to a Fashion Conference, can you imagine and then actually wore the same pair twice OOPS.
You may have seen this outfit on Instagram so you will know that I went with the black booties.  brown all the way next time, both pairs are from Forever 21.

Funny story I think the gentleman beside me thinks I am crazy as he has watched me edit pictures of myself during this train ride and scroll through every form of social media I have trying to catch up, follow new people and discover great new blogs from this weekend.  This blog world we live in sure is not understood by the outside world is it.
One of the two pleather jackets I found last week at Rue 21, buy one get one half price so Kent said get’em both, so score for me right.  I have been wanting a looser fitting moto jacket since Meagan at Because of Jackie started styling hers so much,  I had style envy no question.

Loved the leather piping down the leggings

leopard dress Old Navy
Dress has been with me for a few years, Old Navy never disappoints does it and the leggings were a steal of a deal from Target last year.  Pearls are two sets one from Go Jane and the shorter one from Forever 21.

necklace mixing, pearls
Tell me I am not the only one that layers necklaces?? I love the look you get when you pair them together but honestly all these pearls were a tad bit heavy. 

a ton of pearls

Previous wears:( these are awful because they are from when I first started blogging oops)
