Today's theme is denim. Luckily I have a couple of denim items in my wardrobe though, if you listened to some fashion pundits, I really shouldn't have. I am, after all, over 60 - and jeans aren't meant for over 60s are they?! I've already sinned once this week as I was wearing bright pink jeans yesterday, so here I go again wearing dark denim jeans on day 3.
I had to think carefully about what I was going to wear this morning. We had been contacted by a group of American musicians who wanted to visit Jumilla today, so I needed to be wearing warm and comfortable clothes for walking around town, but I also had to be dressed appropriately for lunch in a smart restaurant afterwards. Smart casual, therefore, is what was required and what is a safe bet for smart casual? Dark denim jeans, of course!
I wore a dressy top, some jewellery and a pair of flat shoes rather than trainers. The look I was aiming for was casual but stylish, which is my preferred way of dressing - though if I am totally honest, the emphasis is usually on the casual!
Do you agree that there shouldn't be an upper age limit for wearing denim? That it's ok for a 65 year old to carry on wearing jeans? After all we're not talking ripped jeans here, or denim mini skirts, just a classic pair of indigo jeans. I love mine as they are a flattering shape, comfortable to wear and with enough stretch that I could enjoy a huge, delicious lunch today without worrying about the waistband digging in! What's not to love?
