Birthday Ready with Ageless Style

It's the third Thursday of the month and time for another ageless style challenge.  This month Marsha picked Birthday Party Attire in honor of her birthday.  I thought that sounded like such a fun and easy prompt!

I decided not to overthink it and just wear an outfit I would wear to a birthday party.  In our family, parties aren't a huge deal and we often just have a small get together at the house.  We are a pretty casual family so we don't dress up. 


This time of year I'd normally wear a sweater with some jeans so that's what I did.  I paired this new black sweater I had gotten over the summer with an old pair of jeans and some new black boots. 




Here is a photo of an actual outfit I wore in August to my mother in law's birthday party.. even then I was wearing a sweater and jeans!

  3. You did what I almost did, then I switched it at the last minute. Birthday parties aren't a big deal for us either, so I normally just wear regular clothes. You look very cozy and ready for fall.

  4. That's us too. We keep it pretty casual, especially when it's home based. That black sweater is going to be a work horse for you, I am sure. Lots of ways to wear it. Have a nice weekend ahead.

  5. What a great spot for pictures! We don't do much for birthdays anymore, but we do eat well and have some gifts. I like to wear something colorful for birthdays most of the time. This sweater is going to be so versatile this winter. I would work great with those skirts you need to pull back out!

  16. Perfect. Jeans and a sweater would work for most anything we do. I did look back and for the granddaughters' birthdays, I have dressed up a little but not always. Kind of depends where we are going and what we are doing at the party. I am thinking the 75th bday party we are attending next week might be a little fancier. Need to talk with the other gals to see what they are wearing.

    Love the top you wore to your MIL's bday celebration.

    1. I often see what others are planning on wearing too so I'm not over or under dressed.

  17. I think that jeans and a sweater are timeless. And they look good on you, too

  18. A sweater and jeans is such a solid, classic outfit Joanne! I think small, family gatherings are the best way to celebrate!
