BTW I'm using these pug pics because they're adorable and it was nearly impossible to find a photo that fit my blog post's aspect ratio.

Summer is still here, but it’s that time of year when we’re starting to think about… and hope for… our first, crisp fall morning. While brick and mortar and online stores have their summer sales going, designers are tantalizing us with glimpses of their Fall 2019 trends, and I’m excited to say they’re feminine.

One of the fashion magazines is even using a term I use all the time, “elevated casual.”

Most of us aren’t tall and lean and built like a supermodel, plus if we’re over 50, we may have gained a few pounds… in all the wrong places. We may also find shopping for clothes that flatter our figure has become more difficult. If you’re nodding in agreement, take heart.  

I have some suggestions that will work together to give you the illusion of a longer, leaner silhouette.

After a sunny carefree weekend in the Hamptons I’m off to hop on the Jitney and return to the hustle and bustle of the city. Most of you know me as the “silver-haired girl on the go,” and nowhere is that truer than when I’m in the city. Even I find it to be a bit of a challenge to look pulled together when I’m going from Ubers, to the subway or walking endless city blocks in 90 degree heat. And this time of year… when the fashion powers that be throw around the term “hottest trend”… 

I want to run for the hills.

A great way to build a wardrobe is when you’re buying new clothes, think about how you can mix and match with the clothes you already have. Imagine most of the pieces I’m showing you today with the same black top or pullover sweater, a great necklace and sandals, or boots, when the weather gets cooler.

I’m stepping outside of my neutral color palette. Would you believe I bought a taxicab yellow, leopard print skirt and a pair of coral pants?

My first pair of espadrilles were Calvin Klein, navy blue canvas with a jute rope wedge and thin rubber soles, and I wore them everywhere, including to a fire. In the middle of the night we got a call that my first husband’s company was on fire. We leapt out of bed and raced to the fire. I was wearing my espadrilles and a pair of bellbottom jeans… So ’70s! After the fire was extinguished we followed the firemen into the building. My shoes and jeans wicked up the black sooty water and were ruined. For years afterward I couldn’t find another pair of espadrilles.

Perhaps that’s why now I treat every pair like they may be my last.

Darlings, do you remember the days of laying out in the summer sun in your string bikini, covering every inch of exposed skin with a thick coating of suntan oil? In those days it was all about the tan. The only sunblock around was zinc oxide, and If you weren’t a lifeguard, chances are you never used the stuff.

Last week I met Diana Ross at her 75th Diamond Jubilee Birthday concert at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. Twice during the concert she took two fingers to her eyes and then pointed them at me in an “I see you” gesture. I was in the fifth row center, end seat and was standing and singing most of the time, so I’m not surprised she could see me. Toward the end of the concert she answered a couple of questions from the audience, and then motioned for me to come up to the edge of the stage. 

Over the microphone Diana Ross said to me, “Did you see me looking at you? I like your dress.”

I’ve discovered Zara, and I love their clothes. This surprises me for two reasons: It’s fast fashion plus the fabrics are poly blends. I will still buy an occasional investment piece, but for fashionable seasonable clothes, I’m having fun shopping online with Zara. While these outfits may not hold up a few years from now…

Over the short pull I’m getting chic designer looking clothes for a fraction of the price.
