Sweet Parrish Place Style {Vol. 35}

Real Life fashion inspiration for women over 40

Hey all! Welcome to my weekly style post!   Every week, I take pictures of my outfits and join other bloggers around blog land who do the same. These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion. I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways. I wear the clothes I own forever, but I usually don’t wear any item in the exact same way more than once or twice.  As a middle school counselor, I am always looking for inspiration, and ways to be stylish, professional, and age appropriate, and I hope to provide inspiration to other women and mothers in similar professions or lifestyles to shop their won closets.  You don’t always have to buy something new! 


I have a special style post today with pictures my daughter and I took on our recent vacation to Charleston, SC.  We were just using an iPhone, but we had fun taking pictures using some beautiful scenery, I hope you enjoy it!  This first dress is on clearance right now for $39.88, so if you like it, snatch it up!  I love it, and it was perfect to wear to Magnolia Plantation!

I wore this navy maxi dress to stroll around the city one evening.  And I love this fringe cross body bag for travel.  I also took it to Las Vegas in May, and Delaney took it to Sweden for three weeks in June.

Delaney bought this adorable linen dress at Marshall’s.  I am not sure what brand it is, but I will source it if possible at a later date.  She bought the sandals at Marshall’s as well.

I was thrilled to find this white ruffled tankini top at Walmart for only $15.96.  Sadly though, it is currently sold out.  But I love the fit and it will go with any bottom I want to pair it with.  I am wearing it with this bottom from Loft right now, but you can’t see it very well.

You have seen me wear this same tank in red and white stripes before.  I loved it so much, that when they went on sale, I bought the grey as well, and I just checked and they are sold out.  And the cut off white shorts I cut off myself from a pair of old bermuda shorts.  The color block sandals are from Urban Outfitters a couple of years ago.

The skirt Delaney is wearing in these next few pictures is vintage.

And that wraps up the pictures we took on vacation, the rest of my style post today were taken before we went on vacation.  I wore this skirt outfit out to run some errands one day.  I bought the mid skirt on clearance for a total steal, under $10!

This green dress was purchased years ago at Loft, and I still am as happy wearing it as the first time I bought it!  Love this dress!  I don’t have a link back to anything similar for you, but you can borrow it if you like it!  Winking smile  The sandals are a few years old too, but very comfy and have memory foam foot beds.  I wore this outfit to go get a pedicure with my girlfriend before I left for Haven Conference.

I bought this vintage dress at a vintage store in Philadelphia last summer.  I paired it with this denim vest that I DIY’d myself.  It used to be a jacket, but I cut off the sleeves!  It was so simple and a cheap way to get a denim vest if you want one and can’t afford a new one.  I love the floral pattern on this dress.  Isn’t it funny how these types of florals are back in now?
