Self-Care Quotes, Summer Fashion Over 50 Finds & Best of May is here in all its random glory because today we’re gonna party like it’s 2010. (Back then, blogging could be loose with mostly stream-of-consciousness commentary. In the 2020s, attention spans have dramatically shrunk, and visitors want quick answers and shopping sources.) Some things haven’t changed though. Sharing quotes that inspire, tickle, or spur us to think a bit deeper brings messages of encouragement, laughter, and wisdom to friends everywhere. Yet I require your help pinning them to Pinterest so they can gain traction and keep rippling! Thank you for your help and support along this journey with this conspiracy of lovely words.
Self-Care Quotes, Summer Fashion Over 50 & Best of May!
Summer Fashion Over 50
Here are some neutral pieces I love for this time of year, and most are a color that is easy to pair with just about everything: “safari” (which is a fancy version of khaki!).
I cannot recommend Jenni Kayne’s new line of organic skin care essentials enough! I was hesitant to spend so much, but it actually took weeks of waiting before the products were in stock again – they sell out because they are JUST THAT AMAZING.
I’m totally crushing on the mini raffia tote and shirt dress below!

Omg!!! THAT frolicking fox video is magical!! Especially since you rarely see foxes with their babies like this for THAT long! Loved when the one pounced on the other playfully! Such a delight to watch…thanks for sharing. We live out & I once caught a glimpse of a momma fox with two babies, but I was driving and it happened so fast…so I appreciated getting to watch this. Foxes are so cool! You never fail to add unexpected fun to your blog posts, which are always chock full of amazing inspiration of all sorts…thanks, Michele!
Thanks for watching my video, Amy. It was such a treat, and I loved sharing it with folks because it felt so special – I just love seeing one traipse through the yard, but 4 was quite the show!
