My favorites for the Beach and Pool

Nicole Oswalt

I send a lot of time at our pool in the backyard and love to go to the beach when I can. All of the suits below I have either tried on or own. So they revery flattering. You can shop these Items by clicking on the pictures. I know finding the perfect suit as a mid-lifer can be. a real challenge. So I thought I would share a few of my favorite suits and accessories.I also thought you might like a few tips.

  1. You need a new suit at least every 2 years. The style change and wearing a suit that is not on trend can really age you.

  2. DON’T do matchy matchy with the cover up and swimsuit.

  3. A black chic suit with a great hat and cover up is always a safe bet.

  4. Big floral prints can me risky. They don’t work for everyone.

  5. A swim skirt is fine but you are way past the cheerleader days. So no big pleated skirts.

My Amazon Haul for May

Nicole Oswalt

Hi Y’all! I have linked all of these cute amazon items, I also want to share a few things about a few of the items. The Black top with flowers took about 3 weeks to get here but it was well worth it. The flowers are not embroidered like they appear in the ad but the shirt is adorable and well worth the money. The red striped to runs big so size down.. The red ruffle top and high low top run a little on the small size. I was please with everything on this haul except the pink dress with embroidery runs very small but it is cute. I will send it back. Also the kimono is cute but it has some words from another language on it. I still may keep it. I you would like to buy anything I would really appreciate you clicking on the picture and going through that Link. It will give me a small commission. Happy shopping!!

Vacation Looks from Pink Possum

Nicole Oswalt

If you haven’t checked out Pink Possum lately you are missing out!! I have always loved shopping there and this spring they are flat out KILLING IT. The first look is a romper. I know not all Rompers were made for all ages but this one is sexy and Soo flattering without baring it all. This color is chic and neutral. This next look would be so cute for Memorial Day. This striped dress has the cutest ties on the shoulders. It is flown and hits about 2 inches above the knee you could also wear it tunic style with white jeans. The last look is a beautiful midi dress. It is perfect for a cover up but the fabric is plenty thick enough to wear as a dress out to dinner. The print is so pretty and looks designer. You can Follow Pink Possum on Instagram and Facebook for new arrivals and shopping events. You can use my discount code Jane15 for 15% off.

Sephora Favorites

Nicole Oswalt

I have several must haves for Midlife ladies. My new Favorite is the Laura Mercia setting powder that DOES NOT settle into your lines… Un yes finally.. I have found a make up primer that BLURS your lines: it is a little pricey but can you really put a price on that. I love the Lancome Highlighter. I have heard many women my age say they can not use highlighter but I swear this on makes me look younger. My most common questions are about my tan. I spray tan in a booth or from Haylee but I keep it fresh an extend it with Tan Luxe Butter. It is the ONLY tan extender that truly does keep you tan and moisturized. It is crazy good. I also love this setting spray so much. I have linked them all below. Simply Click on the photos. My outfit is linked al my Liketoknowit page or you can click on the pick at the top of the Blog. The knew IT Foundation is a game changer. Last but not lest are the Tarte H2O lip glosses. They are so fabulous.

How to wear Cut Offs over the age of 35...

Nicole Oswalt

I believe we can wear MOST trends at any age as long as we know how to wear them and where to wear them. I buy my cut offs 1 or 2 sizes bigger and wear them down on my hips for a little more length and easier fit. I add a belt to hold them up. I like to cut about a 1 inch slit on the sides to make the leg opening wider and make the leg look a little slimmer. I am most comfortable adding a kimono or duster for a little more coverage. A blazer or chunky sweater can also balance the look. I prefer a chunky wedge for a boho look , block heel to dress it up, or a cute slide for a preppy look with a white button up. I use several products on my legs for extra coverage (linked below). I have linked some of my favorite shorts and things to go with them below. So scroll down and check them out. When you click the pictures below to shop I get a small commission so I really appreciate it when you do. Thank you so much for following me it means the world to me.

10 Reasons Ocean Springs MS and The Roost Should Be Your Next Getaway...

Nicole Oswalt

For the past 20 plus years I have visited the coast for work at least 8 times a year. It is a fabulous place. The food, shopping, and hospitality are unsurpassed.. Ocean Springs has over 100 restaurants and even more retailers. The downtown area is lined with cute shops, great places to dine, and after 5:00 some really good safe night life. It is no wonder it was named the # 1 Main Street in America. I was lucky enough to be a guest at The Roost this past week. I think the best way to encourage you to book your room NOW (because word is traveling fast about this beautiful place) is to give you 10 reasons you must go.

  1. Nothing is prettier or more romantic than a southern porch. The Roost has them everywhere you look. You can sip a cocktail, read a book, meet other guests , or simply reconnect with your significant other. There are fans and heaters to add to your comfort level.

  2. There is some type of event going on in Ocean Springs almost every weekend in the spring and summer. Downtown is a short stroll from The Roost. If you want to dress up for dinner you could Uber for $5.00.

  3. The Food in downtown Ocean Springs is absolutely the best. I ate at Eat drink Love Catering which is actually in The Roost. I had Turnip and Artichoke dip and a Blueberry Brie Bacon Burger with a Side Salad. I can tell you it was so good that it will be on the agenda every time I go to Ocean Springs from now on. That is a major compliment because there are many good dining options.

  4. The Wilbur Bar at the Roost has so many creative cocktails and a speak easy feel.

  5. The Wilbur Bar serves Dom Perignon Champagne by the glass (enough said).

  6. The people are proud of the details they put into your stay and go the extra mile to make sure your stay is one you will never forget.

  7. The rooms at the Roost are so beautifully decorated and they think of every detail. There is glass stemware in the room if you want to share a bottle of wine or champagne.

  8. The Ocean Springs Chamber assists over 600 guests a month. You can stop in and get a map of the boutiques and menus for the restaurants. They will also provide you with a calendar of events.

  9. The Beach is only a short walk from the Roost and Eat Drink Love Catering is happy to pack you a picnic lunch.

  10. Last but certainly not least is The Shopping and for that We will have another Blog Post.

Nicole Oswalt

Since I had soo many request for another amazon haul ask and you shall receive. I ordered a good bit and ended up keeping these three things and they are so good. The first item is this adorable T-shirt. It does run small I have on an extra large. I have paired it with pink jogger and you can find them on my Liketoknowit page or just click the pick at the top of the blog. Next is this cold shoulder gray blouse. I was blown away with the quality. This is beautiful for date night. I have paired it with black pants but it is also great with white jeans. Then this fabulous sweater dress. It is super light weight and perfect for my beach trip coming up. It would also be cute with a pair of flare jeans. It is a little thin so I have put a slip under it but you could get away without one. It is a great length. You may shop the bag and hat from my liketoknowit page. I always read the reviews with Amazon to decide what size to order and usually they are helpful. I have linked all of these items with the pictures below. Just click to order. Happy shopping…
