Ripped & Red

Today (actually Memorial Day) I wore a very casual outfit. I wanted to be extra comfortable for hanging around the house and running errands in to town. So I wore a t-shirt and ripped jeans. Some have commented that they think women my age are too old for ripped jeans but my rule for dressing goes into play here. If I wore it when I was younger, I can wear it now (Remember however, I never wore bikinis, hot pants or mini skirts, they just weren't my style. They looked great on other women, just not me!) But I did wear ripped jeans, I didn't buy them that way I was just a tomboy and rough on my jeans. We lived in the country with horses, cats, dogs and goats, I was outside all the time, climbing apple and pear trees when I needed a snack, crossing creeks and climbing windmills. Naturally my jeans ripped! So I will wear them today and proudly do so.  But the real star of my outfit are the shoes. I think you can wear anything and kick up the chic with the right shoes. I LOVE theses shoes! NO REALLY, LOVE THEM!

What do you use to add chic to your casual?

Stop by my Boutique and Chatter page for exact outfit details.

If you follow me on Instagram @northwestmountainliving you would have seen the cake I made last week. It is an Oatmeal cake but way more chic than that sounds. When I want a cake that feels like comfort food but has style, I make this cake. It has a toasted walnut, coconut topping that is heaven.
