Plus Size Fashion After 50 – Casual Weekend Style & A Jord Watch


You never know what we’ll decide to do on a Saturday.  Sometimes we stay home to do projects, but other times we just feel like getting out of the house for a while with no specific agenda in mind. The outfit that I’m sharing with you today is perfect for that no agenda sort of day.

This time of year, I prefer to dress in layers.  It allows me to slip off my jacket if I’m feeling a little too warm.  This cute little pink number by Jones of NY is perfect for that.  It is made of a soft, but substantial weight knit, has a zippered front and pockets and pairs perfectly with a pair of jeans.

I had Pookie snap a couple of shots so that you could get a good look at this gorgeous Jord watch.  Oh my – I am in love with this watch.  When I first spotted one of these, I knew that I really wanted one!  I’m so grateful to Jord for sending me one to review for you.

The wooden wristband is to die for.  Yum and yum.  One of the really nice things about ordering a watch from Jord is that they have many styles for both men and women.  When you place your order, you give them your wrist size so that when you receive your watch, it’s sized to fit you.


Look no further than Jord if you're looking for a statement watch that is both stylish and well made. You'll love the many style and color choices for both men and women.Pin


Of course, the packaging is an added bonus!  I felt like I was opening a very special gift when it arrived.  How adorable is the wooden box that it arrives in and the cute pillow holding the watch.

I kept my other jewelry simple for this casual outfit.  A pair of fushia colored multi hoop earrings plus just a little bit of sparkle with some bracelets from Walmart.

How is your journey to healthier living going?  I’ll admit that I’m struggling to stay active and to eat only healthy foods.  This recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken from The Little Kitchen has helped me a lot though.


Whole Chicken In A Slow CookerPin


I’ve made many, many baked chickens over the years, but this has to be the best and most flavorful one.  The chicken is delicious on its own and the leftovers are great for adding to dishes the following night.  On the last occasion that I prepared this chicken, I used the leftovers for my yummy Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie.


So for this month’s challenge, I’m going to continue to focus on becoming more active.  Fun short-clip Zumba videos from YouTube like this one are great for getting yourself moving and can be done right in your own home.

  1. Love your outfit. Have you noticed that there are few flattering jeans for plus size women? I don’t have skinny legs so why are there only skinny jeans in most stores for plus sizes? Shiver! Anyway, I couldn’t get the links to work and I need those jeans and jacket! And thank you bundles for showing plus size outfits!

    1. Hi Debra. The links should be fine now. I’m sorry they weren’t working earlier. You’re so right about finding good fitting and flattering jeans in plus sizes! I don’t have skinny legs either, but I’ve found that these Rider brand jeans fit me well.

  2. I also could not get the links for the jacket or shirt to work. I have a casual birthday luncheon to attend soon and wanted to consider those as a possible outfit. You look fabulous in the ensemble you put together and that watch is gorgeous.

    1. Hi Dorene. Awww…you’re so sweet! The links should be working fine now. I’m sorry for the aggravation! Yes, I absolutely love that watch!

  3. Suzy, you look comfortable and classy and lovely! Have a wonderful weekend!
    love and blessings~

    1. Thank you, Lynda. I hope you have a wonderful weekend too! It’s going to be a chilly and rainy one here.

  4. Love the jacket! The pink looks really good on you! I have been struggling with the healthy eating part but actually doing great with exercise! I am walking five miles a day almost every day…it’s a great way to learn my new home town and meet people! Might have to get that pink stripe jacket for the cooler weather!

    1. Hi Amy. Wow – you’re literally miles ahead of me (pun intended!) in the exercise department! And what a great way to meet neighbors. So glad you like the pink! Please note that the link for the jacket is one that is similar to mine. I couldn’t find one exactly like it.

  5. You look so put together! That pink looks wonderful on you! I need more put together looks myself….keep ’em coming! 😉

    1. Thank you, Donnamae! I need put together inspiration too because I’m the world’s worst for going around in yoga pants if I’m not going anywhere. lol

    I enjoyed this post so much. Love the outfit and the watch is fabulous. I did a “70’s” style post today. I’ve tried to do that now and again because there aren’t many doing posts for over 70 “real” women.:-) I can never find jeans that fit! I am short with short chubbilicious legs and it is next to impossible. I love Soft Surroundings. It’s based in St Louis so sort of local. Anyhoo…I was browsing the website and saw leggings in denim and decided to give them a try. They are pull on, come in petite and plus size is available. This is not a paid endorsement, it is just another of my places I like and I pass the word. You might check them out. I haven’t worn jeans in years and years until this Fall. I bought two pairs of these leggings and I’m wearing them in the post I have up today. So very comfortable! I can even cuff these leggings and no one would ever know they aren’t regular jeans. Can you tell I am happy about finding these things?LOL They might be an answer for folks looking for jeans that fit.

    1. Hi Pat. I’m so glad you enjoyed the post! I have chubbilicious legs too, except that mine are long so I always struggle to find pants that are long enough. I’ve never purchased anything from Soft Surroundings. I’ll make sure to check them out. I gotta try those leggings! Thank you for the tips.

  7. Okay… so I really like this post. I’ve been following you for the last 4-6 months and haven’t seen anything like this. Would love to see more fashion posts and challenges to stay healthy (*raises hand* over fifty and plus size).

    1. Hi Julie. It’s a time availability problem that has kept me from doing more fashion posts. I honestly think it would work best as a whole second blog that isn’t related to home decor. I just need to clone myself! 😀 Maybe one of these days….

      1. Totally understand! I don’t know how you all do it with what you already have on your plate! 😉 But, I SURE enjoy it all!
