DRESS CODE: Business Travel Fall Wardrobe

What I Wore for a week of business travelI left sunny and warm Southern California at the crack of dawn a a few weeks ago for my usual week of business travel to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It’s always a little challenging packing for a week of work especially when you can’t wrap your head around the fact that it’s going to be cold. I made some good choices and once again learned a thing or two about packing for the week. Here’s what I wore.

DRESS CODE: Business Travel - Summer Fashion 50+

What I Wore July 2016-005In the past 13 months, I’ve traveled for business seven times. Each trip is a week long and I’ve documented a few of the trips in my Dress Code posts. I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a Senior Marketing Manager by day and blogger in the evenings and weekends. I’m lucky enough to work from home for my marketing job so I usually only dress up for work when I travel to the corporate office in Washington state.

DRESS CODE: Summer Lace Shorts & Accessories | 50+ Fashion

50  Fashion Summer Shorts and accessoriesIt’s officially summer and here in Southern California that means shorts and flip flops. Okay, we wear shorts and flip flops nearly year round but at a certain age, the shorts season starts getting shorter. Maybe as we age we get a little more cold blooded but I find myself only wearing shorts when it’s super hot.

DRESS CODE: Beautiful Bellevue & What I Wore

Beautiful Bellevue & What I Wore - homework (13)
Hello friends. I took my third business trip to Bellevue, Washington a few weeks ago and was in awe of the beautiful seasonal changes, the crisp air and the love the people of Washington have for their beloved Seattle Seahawks Football team.

It's a short flight from Los Angeles to Seattle and the company I work for always sends a town car to pick me up at the airport. It's such a treat and I love feeling so special. I snapped this picture of myself in the town car doing my best celebrity gaze impression.

DRESS CODE: Favorite Shorts for Women 50+

Old Navy Shorts-003I have a love / hate relationship with shorts. I live in Southern California. Shorts are a wardrobe staple at last six months out of the year. But at a certain age, it gets difficult to find shorts that aren’t ridiculous. There are the teeny tiny shorts designed for an 18-year old with an inseam of 3 inches – total fabric to sew these shorts is about a 1/4 yard. There are age-appropriate shorts that either need ironing or not as fashionable as I like, or elastic-waist granny shorts. But cue the music - I recently found a pair of shorts that I love and had to share them with you.

DRESS CODE: What I Wore {Business Travel Clothes for 50+}

What I Wore Business Travel 50+Today I’m sharing a really different post with you. I love fashion and accessories but I rarely post pictures of myself or share things that I wear. I recently was away for a week-long business trip for my day job as a senior marketing manager and documented my outfits. I work remotely from my home office and was traveling to the corporate office for the first time. I planned (shopped) for this trip for a long time because it was a packed schedule with meetings, dinners and more meetings.

As you can see from my post title, I’m in the 50+ age group (eeeep how did that happen?) so I don’t want to dress too young but I also don’t want to dress matronly. So here are the outfits I wore and a few tips that I learned for my next trip in a few months.

Homework ~ Extra Credit: Daily Deals

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ToAdorn. All opinions are 100% mine.
JULY184-554x372Friends, I have a new daily deal website to share with you. I love daily deals and this one is so fun. It’s called ToAdorn and it features fashion, accessories and home d├ęcor. The neat thing about ToAdorn is that they team up with some of the best sellers around and feature their products which of course, are usually the latest trends. While I was shopping on ToAdorn, I saw stamped metal, burlap, chevron and more. All the things we love and see on our favorite sites and blogs.

Little Crafts: paper dolls

Pin It

If you have a little girl crafter in your life, then this is a fun project you can do together.


Next time you see one of those fashion round ups in a magazine, tear it out to use for paper dolls.


Glue the fashion round up onto a piece of light weight card stock and cut out each top. I used a manila file folder and glue stick.


Search online for paper dolls – I used vintage paper dolls from the 1940’s. Print them out on cardstock and cut them out. You’ll need to do a few trial print runs to get the size right so the clothes fit properly.


My vintage girls needed a more modern look, so I made them each a pair of leggings. Use tracing paper over your paper doll to make a template and then use the pattern on black cardstock to make each pair of leggings.


Removable double-sided tape works well to stick on the clothes.
The girls are looking good in neutral t-shirts.


Bright red patterns, stripes and solids. The girl in the middle is showing some of her blue lingerie. Hmmmm….


Flowing, soft knit t-shirts look great with the black leggings!


School will be out soon and this project would make a great indoor activity for your little girl crafter! 

Have fun and thanks for visiting.

Carolyn
