Note from Pauline Durban, President and Founder of Covered Perfectly - This is the second time Jennifer has done a review on the Fit and Flare, it's one of her favorite tops from us and she really does it justice. Royal blue is a great color on so many skin tones. Jennifer wore it while she was house hunting, see how her adventure went.
Over to Jennifer...
We’ve been thinking about moving ever since my husband retired, and just recently it’s feeling more like a possibility. The San Francisco Bay area is a very
expensive place to live. Now that we don’t need to be in commuting distance to Silicon Valley, it seems crazy to pay a premium to live here.
I’d like to live in more natural surroundings. Closer to the ocean, mountains, lake, river or a forest. It’s not that we live in an urban jungle, but it’s getting very crowded here and I’m longing for a quieter space. Many of our friends have moved to an active retirement community about an hour from our home so last weekend we headed out for a look.
The weather was iffy, gray and threatening rain so I wore riding boots, leggings and my Fit and Flare top by Covered Perfectly. I like how this blue pairs with black. My raincoat is old as the hills but a favorite for its fun texture and swingy feel. It ended up hailing so I’m very glad I wore boots!
The model homes were predictably gorgeous, but the lots felt crammed together. The club house was very luxurious and everyone we met seemed thrilled to live there. But something just felt off. There was no ocean, mountain or forest nearby and so it seemed bleak to me. Our hunt has just begun but our itchy feet have us considering all options.
This fit and flare top is long enough to be tunic length on me. I love its coverage over tight leggings.
The gorgeous kitchens had me really loving these homes but I know the most important thing is location, location, location, so we will keep looking.
Are you planning to move to a less expensive location when you retire?
