ways to cover arms

Happy Thursday, everyone!  I am back with 5 Ways to cover arms over 50, and #2 is Linen Cardigan!

We began this series on Tuesday with shirtdresses.  My desire is to give you some thoughtful ideas of how to cover your arms with third pieces of different types.

I know my look today originally from Chico’s is a bright one…but remember, I am a vibrant color person and this cherry pop cardigan and tank from the spring collection certainly fits the bill.

I am not proposing a look like this for everyone, but I do like it for me…I especially am fond of the new kimono sleeve designs.

What is important for you is to remember linen cardigans come in all sizes and colors, and can be worn by many of you most of the summer.

Also, at the end of the post, I help another reader interpret her style adjectives!

You might remember this JJILL linen cardigan from my past.  It was originally soft pink.

When I discovered that I am a vibrant autumn, I died it!   I used this easy, easy Dylon Machine Fabric Dye in Rosewood Red.  

You just toss the Dylon Egg in a front loading machine with the garment…and Viola!

Now, I can easily wear my linen cardigan all year long.

I love how linen cardigans breathe, and I am never over heated in mine.  They work really well in a warm climate.

Here are a few more, I found online:

While I cannot link to this fun Chico’s bracelet, I can link to the necklace I am wearing in the top image, THE SEEDBEAD FRINGE NECKLACE.

And, I am really enjoying my UGG Teague Leather Sandals.

Today, I am assisting Natalie.  

She sent me this message:

“Pamela, I am enjoying your posts immensely!!! I was taught to have three words when studying in college, so I love the freedom of your five words.  My words are elegant, classic, glamorous, relaxed, polished.  My colors are soft yellow, salmon, watermelon, peach, coral, peachy-pink, periwinkle, turquoise, medium purple!!! My basic colors are off-white, cram, rust, navy, and charcoal grey!!!  I only wear skirts that are long, but all different kinds and I must wear flats!!! I’m disable so I’m on a walker.  Would you consider doing me?! I would be so very happy if you did!!! I have a little below the should length warm brown hair, deep blue eyes and fair why skin!!! Thank you for really considering!!!

Natalie, of course, I am happy to help any way that I can.  I selected tops only that I believe communicate your casual chic adjectives.

These tops would look amazing with white or cream colors of bottoms.  

I will confess with your adjectives and colors and the time of year, this one was more of a challenge.  Also, if I selected sleeveless tops, it was with a lovely topper of some kind in mind.

I really believe you need an off white tweed jacket!  And there are some lovely jackets on sale right now.

This exercise is to inspire you and get you thinking of different ways to communicate what you want to say with Natalie-style!  And you are an obviously classy lady!

Here are the tops:


I look forward to hearing from you Natalie!  Now, back to ways to cover arms over 50…how do you feel about linen cardigans….fans or not??  Just let me know and I return tomorrow with look #3!
