Colorful Resort Wear for Women over 50
There is much that could qualify for resort wear for women over 50. Each of us is styling an outfit that you would wear while on different kinds of vacations. And this week, it’s all about the beachy trip. I started with the time you might spend at the pool or beach. Now Charlotte is wearing something that you might need for a casual day around the resort. Or especially in my mom’s case, when your shopping on the trip, LOL!!
And then there’s the outfit for a sunset beach picnic too.
Quote of the day: “People used to talk about my legs as much as they did about my talent, but I was blind to my own beauty. My advice to women who worry about aging is to nurture gratitude for your life. Remember that true beauty comes from within, from the positive qualities of your heart and mind. And most of all, be kind. Kindness is beautiful. Out of that will come happiness. And happiness is sexy!” Tina Turner
Not only am I including Charlotte’s outfit as the idea behind the resort wear for women over 50, I thought I’d include a little personal tidbits from these types of vacations!!
My mom has never been a huge sunbather (thus the good skin at her age, I’m sure). Even when she went with a group to Hawaii, she doesn’t even remember going swimming.
One of the reasons is how easily she burns (and before the advent of sunscreen). Charlotte remembers working in the summers setting tomatoes. She would wear long sleeve gingham shirts and she would even get burned through the white parts of the material.

Colorful Resort Wear
It only seems fitting that when on a beachy vacation that your clothing is colorful and fun. My mom found this blue, playful jumpsuit that she had made years ago.
Now truthfully, she isn’t one that loves jumpsuits due to the bathroom issue. I feel like there’s a love/hate relationship with jumpsuits for most of us. They are wonderfully easy (one and done) to look great, yet the bathroom issue is always something in the back of our minds. It’s one of the reason I love my jumpsuit from my Fashom box since it has buttons down the front.
And voila, that’s how mom made this jumpsuit too!! It makes me question why in the world there would ever be a jumpsuit made with a zipper in the back? Can you say design flaw??
Ideas to make the bathroom issues easier?
How to Style Short Girls in Jumpsuits and the Tips to Make Issues Easier
A floral purse has the best kind of summer vibe. Do you take more than one on your vacations?? I have learned that it’s really not difficult if you take all different size ones. When you pack the others besides the one you take on the plane, just place one inside the other.
It’s always nice to have a large tote to accommodate the necessities when you are hanging around the resort for the day. Things like sunscreen, water and especially your wallet!!
The details are your jewelry and hat. Hats can be a lifesaver to keep the sun off your face and neck. I know many women hate the fact they mess up your hair. But on vacation, messy hair could be part of the vacation vibe, right?? Either that or just keep the hat on all day!!
As for the jewelry, white pieces have a very summery look and will go with everything!!
The truth is that these sandals are actually mine. I let my mom borrow them for the shoot because her bratty daughter (see personal story from yesterday’s post) didn’t like the pair that she had on originally!!
These are a pair I won in an Instagram giveaway from the company Naot. I absolutely love them and think that metallic sandals are perfect as part of resort wear for women over 50 because they go with everything.
I truly think it’s important to have comfortable sandals even at a resort. A day of exploring or shopping can be hard on the feet and the last thing you want on vacation is a blister or sore tootsies. These Naot have an anatomic cork foot bed that is very walkable. My mom wouldn’t totally agree since they are a half size smaller than what she wears (due to the bratty daughter), LOL!
And they have a velcro closure which I think is fabulous.
Insider tip: If you have a buckle ankle strap shoe, I have perfected how to change it over to velcro in a YouTube video. It’s easy and I’ve used it for over a dozen shoes.
Thank you for visiting my space on the internet. I like to showcase how it’s never too late to look great for women of any age, size or working with any budget.
I feel I’m here to help move beyond the fashion rules of yesterday and evolve. Style and clothes are made to give you joy. Not cause us stress because we are worried about what other’s think.
My hope is that you get ideas and inspirations from Charlotte, Lesley and myself. It’s not about copying what we wear, but about using what you already have and updating items along the way.
Most of all it’s getting us to think differently and dare I say, have fun?
