(Video Chat & OOTD) Classic Fashion over 40-50: Pink and White Plaid Button Up, Cropped Skinny Jeans, Pink Nylon Tote, and Leather Sandals


(ABOVE) The weather has been in the mid to upper 70s, so I’m sticking with my go-to basics of skinny jeans and a button up for casual days.

Simple, Casual Jeans Outfit

Hi, everyone!

The day I filmed this, I had a lot of errands to run, and the temperature was in the mid-70s, so I kept my outfit simple and comfortable. (Our warm temperatures continue!)

These are the new skinny jeans I bought a few months ago, and I love the cropped length. I think that showing the narrowest part of my calf helps to elongate my legs and give the jeans a more feminine look–especially when worn with sandals that show a lot of skin.

I can’t believe it’s almost February!

P.S. My video and photographs were captured at Waterside Shops and California Pizza Kitchen, where I had lunch with my friend Gail. 










(ABOVE & BELOW) On my lips: Hemp Organics Rose Petal Lipstick and Rose Lip Tint . 

Although I’m wearing powder foundation, blush and the two lip colors, I’m not wearing mascara or eye shadow. This is a typical makeup look for me during casual days out with my husband or girlfriends.



(BELOW) The bag organizer I placed in my Longchamp tote to give it shape and provide organization. (Available in many colors.)

    I’m new to your social media channels and I just love everything you do. My taste is very similar to yours so it is a real pleasure to see all your fashion blogs. I have a question about your hair. Mine is very much like yours with the silver/white/gray and long and straight. Do you use anything to brighten those shades? Just curious about your hair routine. I apologize in advance if you have already covered this subject. If that’s the case please let me know. I’m a bit older than you (64) and I grew up in Hawaii and So Cal so I also have a deep love of water.

      Hi, Sue! Thank you so much! I did cover this subject in my blog a few months ago, and I’m sorry my site isn’t as easy to find things as I would like. The internet still has me baffled!!! 🙂 Here’s the post: http://jljbacktoclassic.com/archives/11677 I hope that helps to answer your question. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog — and to leave your question! Cheers ~ Janis

      Hi, Sweet Rose! These sandals are very comfortable, yes. I wear them a lot! Naples is a pretty place, and I do feel blessed to be able to live here and enjoy it. I definitely will be putting together a second Q&A video. I’m so happy to know you’d welcome seeing another one! Thank you for letting me know! ~ Janis

      Hi, Julian! I had so much fun visiting these YouTube channels. It’s interesting to know what people think my voice sounds like, so listening to another YouTube person who you say I sound like is fun! Now I know! Thank you for sharing the links! Cheers to you! ~ Janis
