Jodie/ 50+ / Real Style 👠  It’s never too late to look great! Denver's real women, real style. 👠👢👡are my passion. 2 rescued 🐱& I knit www.jtouchofstyle.com. Shop my IG below.

I think this is my least favorite outfit for this #thriftedchicstylechallenge. Not the best way to end the #stylechallenge, but it's reality, right? I thought it'd be perfect for that transition time since it's a heavier dress yet doesn't cover everything.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The dress is from one of my favorite thrifting haunts in Denver @dejabluecherrycreek. It's perfect for the summer to fall weather since it's a sweater material, yet it's sleeveless. And I love that it's longer in the back than in the front.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The problem is it's not a great color on me and it's not very flattering. If anyone wants it, I'd be happy to send it to you. It's a small and DM me if you're interested and live in the US. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I tried to get creative by adding in a totally different color scheme with the turquoise. This fun necklace is from @trendzboutiquecolorado on their $5 clearance sale. It probably cost less than the dress. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How do you try to make clothing work for you, when you know it's not flattering on you?? Or are you good at purging?

Print mixing on our forth day of the #thriftedchicstylechallenge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I purposely bought this #thrifted gingham blouse because it should be easy to mix with other prints. But it's taken me awhile to get it right. I tried this blouse with another pair of printed pants last summer, but it wasn't great. I think the prints were too much the same size.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whereas with these pants, the gingham almost looks like a solid. Don't you think, or am I just talking crazy?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And let me give credit where credit is due. Thanks to @chicover50 for the inspiration for this outfit from last year in LA. She's got amazing taste, and maybe one of these days, I'll start to pick it up. That LA trip was when I bought these @lovechicos pants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me point out one more thing. These fabulous @jjillstyle pink mules that are almost like a neutral. I have been wearing them ALL the time, and they are the perfect transition to fall. And that clear purse hiding behind me?? It's my fave of the summer from @trendzboutiquecolorado.

I was so lucky to attend @goodwilldenver shop and save event this last weekend. Isn't that a perfect way to celebrate Day 3 of our #thriftedchicstylechallenge? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The best part about this event was twofold. Meeting other wonderful thrifters in the Denver area and learning more about @goodwillintl and the Denver Branch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you didn't realize, Goodwill is celebrating their 100th birthday and they are more than just a thrift store. They support many Coloradans in need through the #powerofwork and serves many at risk students every year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's just another good reason to shop local, shop thrifty, and shop period!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For our #stylechallenge, I wore my new favorite #secondhand yellow leather jacket and #thrifted bright orange earrings. Color is my language of love, I guess you could say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What do you wear to transition to fall? Since it's our second day of the #thriftedchicstylechallenge, I went with a lightweight but long sleeve blouse. This was a sale item at my favorite local boutique, @trendzboutiquecolorado, and I almost talked myself out of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The #alreadyworn things are the purse, shoes, and necklace. I'm so much better at checking out everything lately when I go #thrifting. I used to only look at the clothing. Which is silly.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The purse may be a little busy for this outfit, but I needed a big purse to hold the camera. Definitely an advantage to a bigger purse. Maybe I look like Mary Poppins? I could pull a coat rack out of this one...ha ha!!

The first day of our #thriftedchicstylechallenge and I'm sporting my favorite color.....YELLOW!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This yellow plaid jacket is a hand me down from my cousin, @joiler_dealer and I actually think it was her daughter's. Ha...that's me, wearing teenager's clothes. But seriously. You could never tell, right?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The grey pants are also #secondhandclothing from a local shop. I always think of them as cold weather pants which is silly because they are lightweight and cropped. I need to get that certain color for certain season out of my brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My favorite part of this outfit is the addition of pink with the yellow. It's not a color combination I'd normally combine, but I think it's super fun!! Anything to keep summer in my heart!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Would you wear teenager's clothes? I'm sure Stacy and Clinton from What Not to Wear wouldn't have approved....

Our Ageless Style group came up with a theme about the power of cardigans. And it's true. I don't think I know a woman who doesn't have one (or a hundred) in her closet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lately I've been buying more long cardigans and trying to steer away from the short ones.You know, that idea to stop buying things you already have a ton of? Or am I the only one who has this bad habit?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Needless to say these longer cardigans really float my boat. For some reason they seem more sophisticated and almost elegant. Crazy??
And doesn't everyone take photos next to the sheep statue?

#ad You may think that I'm the health nut and twisted my husband's arm to take supplements. Well I admit to being the health nut (in moderation), but it's Rob who started me on the supplement train.

He's been taking Saw Palmetto ever since I met him 15 years ago. It's really because his father passed away from prostrate cancer that he became more concerned with doing the extras to take care of himself. And this is one easy step for his health.

As for the fact that he dresses so fabulously now?? That's all me!! :) Puritan's Pride is offering my readers a fantastic discount of BUY 1 GET 2 FREE on Puritan's Pride brand products.

Meeting other women has been the best part of this new career. I met @stacytaubman through @lisa_loyet_schmitz who is my contact with @walkingcradles which you'll hear more about on the blog soon! Phew...did you follow all that?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyways, Stacy is the founder of @risecollaborativeworkspace and is looking to start up the same concept in Denver soon! I'll be interested to be part of their social members to hopefully learn, grow and meet others.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And don't you think everyone has such an interesting story?? It's always so educational to hear other women's journeys. Stacy started out as a math teacher. And now she's an entrepreneur. I was a cosmetic dentist and now I'm a fashion blogger. What about you??

This is not a photo you'll see on the blog. For one thing it isn't even in focus. And my husband hated this shot. It just goes to show how many "bad" photos we really take when we are out shooting for the blog.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As for the clothes, we were able to shop the "Retail Therapy" section of @joan_vass where the items are marked down depending what kind of item it is. Isn't that a great concept? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have to admit that I'm a sale girl through and through. I'm sure that's why I love thrifting too. And if you ever #secondhandshop, then you should join our #thriftedchicstylechallenge that starts Sept. 17. It's a fun way to get inspired and you could win a prize from our sponsor.

For all of you who love black, then you'll love this post. We styled black with our camo pieces, yet I tried to add in some feminine elements too. If you're interested, you can see the details on the blog or even on You-Tube. We created a video talking about the extra details of these outfits.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you tell that we try to have fun when out and about? We found this cool plane outside a restaurant/bar that is close to Nancy's new place. So we got up close and personal to see how it was all put together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you really think about flying, doesn't it amaze you that these pieces of metal can carry us from place to place. In one piece??? .

Happy Labor Day. Since the summer is winding down, the best way to celebrate is with ice cream, right?
Not only do I love shopping local, but my husband and I love eating local too!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We were introduced to @highpointcreamery with their ice cream truck last summer, and were so excited to experience it again at a local park. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know that ice cream is my husband's favorite food (along with pizza) don't you? Heck, when he turned 50 many years ago, he got 50 days of ice cream. Truth be told he applied for an extension for another 10 days...ha ha!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's you favorite food? Would you eat it for 50 days straight??
