Denim jacket – The wardrobe staple

Denim jacket – The wardrobe staple

For me a denim jacket (or should I say denim jackets) is a wardrobe staple. This is the piece that I always pull out when spring is approaching – And I wear it through the summer and into fall.

A denim jacket is so versatile and it is one of those pieces that you can use with almost everything. As I´m a huge pants person I love to pair a denim jacket with pants of every color, but I also like to use it with dresses and skirts. One of the best things about denim jackets is the fact that you can dress it up or down.

Winter coats

Winter coats

I am not exaggerating when I say I´m absolutely obsessed with coats this winter. And maybe it is completely understandable as this winter is really a feast for the coat lovers. I mean the choices are endless and the variety is great. I just could keep on adding coats to my wardrobe… seriously!

What I love about the coats this season is the oversize look – it is super comfy. It also makes it so much easier to layer, and I certainly need to layer in wintertime as I´m always cold. So for me this trend is simply perfect.

Chasing waterfalls last summer

Chasing waterfalls last summer

I love to travel and always have, ever since I was a kid. I still remember how excited and lucky I felt the first time I travelled abroad.

This year I had some exciting and very special trips scheduled, and one in particular that I had been looking forward to for almost two years. But due to some tiny invisible virus everything was cancelled or put on hold.

So what do you do when you are trapped on an island in the north where it doesn´t even get that warm during the summer? Yes, you go chasing waterfalls! At least that was one of my hobbies last summer.

Beautiful hair after fifty

Beautiful hair after fifty

As we get older our hair changes and there is absolutely nothing we can do to reverse that change. But on the other hand, there are plenty of things we can do to work with these changes. With age the hair often gets both finer and thinner, but it can also get thicker in certain places and be extremely hard to manage. It is more common though that the hair gets thinner with age.

Loosing our hair can be a problem as we get older, or the hair gets too curly, too thin at the top, frizzy, lifeless or flat. It can also be a challenge when the hair starts to get grey. It can be really difficult to manage it as the greys usually feel drier, more coarse and wiry.

Spring 2020 styles

Spring 2020 styles

It is always refreshing when the spring collections arrive in stores. The brighter colours and thinner materials tell us that spring is just around the corner. And spring is such a wonderful season when everything is waking up and starting to blossom.

This spring we are seeing a lot of rose prints and bright and beautiful colours, which describes spring perfectly. The Pantone Color Institute has announced that its 2020 colour of the year is a Classic Blue, a deep blue shade that is comforting and relatable. I actually love all shades of blue as blue is my favourite colour.

So happy to be here

So happy to be here

I have been fascinated with fashion and style from a very young age. Therefore it is no wonder that one of my idols in life is the legendary Gabrielle Bonheur, better know as Coco Chanel.

The 50plus Girl blog will feature style and fashion along with my passion for travel and food. But I am a huge fan of travelling and seeing new things, towns, cities, countries and cultures. And I still have so many places on my bucket list.

With age I value even more being comfortable in what I am wearing and not accepting that beauty is pain. Chanel explained this so well when she said “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.” This is so true!

As an author of a book about menopause and the years after forty I will also be blogging about menopause, higher age, health and just about everything else associated with getting older.

I hope you will enjoy following me on my blogging journey here and my travels around the world.
