Join me on this video vlog as I go shopping at a large mall for Spring & Summer outfits and ideas. I'm looking for a jacket, top, purse, shoes & even pants. I wasn't sure what I was looking for but in the end I put together a outfit that I love using other clothes at home plus some accessories. Although our videos have views from many women over 50, this vlog could be of interest to a woman in her 30s or 40s too. Enjoy and thanks for tagging along!

Love everything about you . You are beautiful and carry yourself with elegance and class with just the right amount of silliness .😆 I love that you are a natural down to earth woman . Other fashion U-Tubers wish they had your charisma and grace.💝
When you were in “Free People”, I was looking at the clothes Bill was filming and I was all “try that on, no wait, try that on”.
I do not like the pastel from head to toe. It reminds me of a retirement community in Florida! Lol!
There is just enough shoulder padding to give the jacket structure, I like it.
When do we go shopping again??!! Lol!
Take care and many hugs - Barbara
I have the 5 outfits video using this jacket coming up this Friday. I thought they suited a jean look better so you'll see them on that video. We'll try to find the matching link but can't always, sorry about that.
Hurricane looks like he's saying "so what did you get me Mommy?". Lol! I love quarter sleeves. But shoulder pads make me look like a football player. Think I'll go purse hunting for Spring, even if my hubby says" Whaaat? Another purse?". Heather, Bill & Hurricane (((HUGS)))
Looks fabulous Heather, your new bag is sort of like a light rosegold colour, which I love, the shoes go fabulous with it as well. Don't think I will go back to the bell bottoms, with the 6 inch or 15cm platform heels? OMG what a nightmare, when you took your shoes off! Love your videos, , always so positive, which is what we all need! Take care Heather, Bill & little Hurricane. Love Debra xxx
Hello Ms Heather and Bill! I love these type of videos, its like we are on a field trip LOL. I so enjoy seeing all the variety of neat stores, ya'll have an AWESOME mall there LOL! I so lve that blue on ya Heather and the navy blue pants was an excellent choice, it goes with that color shirt so pretty and it also goes so good with your shoes and new purse! It looked like you had so much fun shopping and we were right there enjoying it with ya ! Tell Bill and Hurricane Hello!
Well, that was fun! Going shopping at the mall without the fatigue! LOL! Loved the outfit you put together and I do exactly the same thing.... putting a small purse inside a larger one, especially when I travel! Loved the gold color!
Your new outfit is really pretty. Love the new bag, shoes and jewelry pieces you chose for the look. You seem to be quite good at putting a look together. Thanks for sharing and letting us tag along with you to the mall. 💚💐
I LOVE Mall shopping, and this mall looks absolutely amazing 💖 Oh my gosh.....the light blue jacket and top to match look stunning on you, excellent choice here Heather, and your new purse is gorgeous, love the color and style, thank you for taking us along with you 👜 this was so much fun......wishing you and Bill a wonderful week-end take care 💕
Heather, I'm not into the monochromatic look, but I loved the look of the blue jacket with your white tank and jeans! You were rockin' it girl! 😉 The jacket fits you really well. I'll be looking forward to your video next week with the 5 looks with the jacket. With your youthful, upbeat personality and eye for fashion I think it would fun shopping with you. ❤️🌸🌷
Hi guys! Heather, I loved the powder blue blazer! Love how your accessories look with it too. I was saying out loud, "Oh get that blazer Heather!".... My husband said from the other room, " Who are you talking to?" Lol! Thanks so much for taking us with you. I could feel the endorphins when "we" walked into Nordstrom! ❤
That's so funny, but keep talking to me, I love it LOL!!! It's weird how you look at something and you know it has your name on it, I totally felt that way with the blazer. Can't wait til WE go shopping again!
The pale blue jacket and top look very pretty,
I remember the bell bottom trousers, and the brightly coloured ones called looms:)
I’m just getting used to the slimmer jeans😀
Thank-you for sharing,
Have a nice weekend.
I'm wearing the Estee Lauder all day foundation. The eyeshadow palette is from l'oreal and the mascara is Diorshow. I do have a lot of my favorite makeup items at www.Amazon.com/shop/awesomeover50 I hope that helps
I love this sort of jacket , I seem to be buying a few ie red , fawn , blush pink . I used to buy a lot of dresses but my shoes are almost flat now , foot trouble , oh how I miss my heels great vid thanks heather ❤️
Heather, what a great video!! The mall that you were shopping at is gorgeous!! I love the outfit that you picked, that powder blue is a beautiful color on you and with your hair. I love the purse that you picked and the tassle earrings!! How fun!! You have great taste!! It's always wonderful seeing that precious Hurricane too and I can't forget your hubby Bill who does an awesome job of all of your wonderful videos!!xoxoxo
Love your outfit! The blue looks so pretty on you. Love your purse too, the color is timeless. Wow, press passes to go the homeshow!
I ran across an awesome quote recently I'd like to share with you. "When you talk, you are only repeating what you know. But if you listen, you may learn something new." --Dalai Lama
Love and happiness from Teresa
The light blue top and jacket look fabulous on you!....they really bring out your beautiful eyes! I only do monochromatic in black....and I wear a black top almost every day because I love how black looks next to my silver hair lol.
It's just gorgeous, Heather. I love the sleeve length in the jacket; I always pull my sleeves up. I'm not fond of the full monochrome look either, especially in pastels - it can look a little 'mother-of-the-bride'. The colour is lovely on you, and the accessories are perfect, especially the purse. Really cool, and very stylish, yet easy to wear. Thank you both so much. Great video. Hugs to the sweet little one. Have a wonderful weekend. xoxo
Great outfit, I'll be interested in how you mix and match. I noticed those bell bottoms! I don't think I'll be purchasing any, but I remember looking good in them back in the day :). The Home Show is going to a wonderful video (videos?) Wish I could go with you!
The Home show was fun but my feet are sore from all the walking. 1st video should be out for that on Tuesday. I'll be sorting my clothes for the mix & match and that should be out Friday, thanks so much for watching!!
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
