I am always on the lookout for pretty gray separates.  At my age, a column of color or neutral is more flattering than a lot of pattern.  Heather gray always compliments gray hair if you are a member of the gray camp. Emmy Lou Harris knows how to rock an all-gray look.  You rarely see her in much pattern.

Clockwise from left to right.  Peruvian Connection makes the best layering t-neck (the extreme t-neck) in my mind.   It isn’t too thin, has just the right amount of stretch and way outlasts any other I have found and it comes in six colors! I love the Madewell Medium Transport Tote, it is simple, has a crossbody strap and is big enough to hold your laptop. This sweater from Banana is soft as cashmere and has a flattering fit. I am a big fan of the j crew stretch perfect shirt.  It can be tucked in jeans without looking sloppy.  I love This VSR necklace and earrings.  The necklace can be worn with an open neck or with a sweater and looks great.  The cross earrings add a little bit of sparkle.  These J Crew velvet toothpick jeans can be dressed up or down a must for the upcoming holiday season. Another J Crew fav is these leopard smoking slippers.

I was noticing how many images on my Fashion Over 50 fall winter board are of women my age in all black.  I know, I know some of you are over it but it is still classic and sharp. The always chic Linda Wright whose shop Crimson Paris is a much-loved Parisian favorite steps it up a notch with her signature style.  Click here to shop at Crimson.

From clockwise left I bought a poncho similar to this last year and wear it all the time.  It is more of an investment piece but if you consider the number of wearings not so much.  I included a more price friendly one in the shop the look widget below.  You can’t go wrong with these classic wayfarers.  They are always in style.  I love these Spanx faux leather leggings they literally hold in all your assets. The leopard J Crew bag is a classic as well while the tortoise earrings are more trendy but fun. I am coveting these riding boots from Seychelles.  I have had good luck with them and they seem to be pretty price friendly and comfortable.  Top it off with a great cashmere & wool scarf and the extreme t neck from Peruvian Connection.

How do you feel about Mules? Love them or hate them?  At first, I thought they were a silly fad for women our age.  Then I realized if you have foot issues (ie bunions) they are a fashionable alternative that can actually work. Granted you can’t tromp around in them all day, and they are definitely trendy.  I put together a list of some fun ones that are on sale or not pricey, to begin with. FYI the red ones are actually Naturalizer and they come in black and wide yippee!!

    Wonderful suggestions and I love the “VSR” cross earrings and necklace, but there was no link when I clicked on the photos and a Google search didn’t turn up anything for VSR Jewelry. Help???

    I love Linda Wright’s style. I had lost the link to her and I’m so happy you provided that. She has an updated but timeless look and her various pieces are classic.
    I truly look forward to your posts on fashion, thank you.

    What fabulous and deliscious post. I no sooner finished with grey, when suddenly it was black and then the mules. You are good Cindy, really good. Love your posts!

    I adore those velvet mules. I also love ponchos. I have to look and see what color I have. Who can remember from one winter to another. Anyway. Great post with so many goodies.

    Cindy, you knocked it out of the park again! I have already bought a few of the mules you suggested and I’m loving the gray and the black pieces. I have my whole fall wardrobe planned and getting ready to order now. Thanks to you for he inspiration.
