I did a review of Modnique, a flash sale site, back in November and with the gift card I was given I purchased several items. One was a lovely blue cotton sweater that I’ve worn quite a bit since I received it. When I saw it I knew it would be a great piece for me as – all together now – I’m always cold and tend to wear sweaters later in the year than most. The pretty robin’s egg blue color would carry me well into what many consider to be the “warm” months. It’s not a piece I can wear in winter unless I layer because it is cotton and not wool but it is easily used as a layer because of the zipper front.
The hubby and I were heading into the “big city” and so I ah-hem, dressed up. Montana’s dress code is still flummoxing me but I figure I’ll get there just as I don’t need to know any longer. And at my age I figure as long as I’m happy and comfortable I just plain don’t care what anyone else thinks. The freedom that brings is heavenly. If only I had that when I was younger….
So I give you today my Going to Town outfit….
Simple, comfortable and most important – warm! The cotton zup up sweater can stand alone or work as a jacket. The jeans are from The Gap. I went in and asked for a pair with a higher rise – seriously people I’m 54! – and the delightful sales girl directed me to these 1969 boot cut jeans. They fit quite well and I liked the dark wash. Sadly they were the only pair in the store or I would have bought another. It’s hard to find jeans that fit AND that one likes. Isn’t it?

Since I about live in my cowboy boots I need my jeans a little bit longer and boot cut. The waistband sits just below my belly button and I can bend over without fear of blinding people.
The necklace was one of the first gifts my husband gave to me. It came to him from his mother. It’s Orrefors crystal and very few were made. His father worked for a company that imported it to this country. It is gorgeous in direct light – the crystal just glows and the cuts in the back cause it the sparkle like mad.
I was all set for my day in Missoula! I was warm and I didn’t smell like a goat – what more could any woman ask?
