These Boots Were Made For Walking

Here are some more shots of Carol Olten in La Jolla, CA . Check out her amazing sunglasses and boots! I’m out the door to meet with our favorite 100 year old Ruth, so expect some new photos very soon.

  • She's an artist all the way!! So glad you captured a closeup of the pattern on her coat!! Boots are very similar to Fluvogs!! Love her style!! Good for her!!

    She looks amazing. Love it all. The sunnies. The coat. The bag. And of course she is totally rocking those fabulous boots xoxo

  • Oh man!! I have to have her coat. Carol, if you're reading this please hook me up with the details! I'm a word artist so it's right up my ally.

    Carol is a noted journalist and historian. As well as looking cool, she is cool.

    Ari, I feel that your blog would be even more inspirational if you mentioned the achievements of interests of some more of your elders. I know you can't do it for them all, especially those you just come upon.

  • OMG! That is such a fabulous coat, and the boots are gorgeous. I love her entire look. She is style personified!

  • I echo Suella's comment; I would love to know more about her. Her style is outstanding and I suspect it's a reflection of her persona. She's fascinating and I'd like to know more!



  • Wow, Love everything she's wearing. It saddens me when I see young women dressing like clones. Take a chance, young ladies!

  • Asombrosa y bella, saludos desde

  • It is unbelievable how a woman of her age can still strike poses in a gorgeous ensemble the way she does. I'm just like "wow"! She looks great. Very admirable!

  • This is such a unique blog; I'm so glad I stumbled across this. Definitely following you on Bloglovin' now!

    At age 62, THIS is the kind of inspiration I am looking for! While the people you photograph are always well-dressed, and sometimes very artistically dressed, there are very few totally cool dressers. This woman is one of them! (And I agree that you should mention her achievements.)(And tell us where she got the coat.)

  • She would be a head turner at any age! What great style.

  • She looks amazing! Aaaaah!!!
