Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence!
The trees in my front yard prove white shows up about now every year! Fashion media may tell you wearing black and white is a seasonal trend, but really it is always appropriate wear…always chic…always classic…always clean…and always works when you don’t know what to do. It has a timeless allure.
I know if you are a regular reader of this blog, you are also aware I wear black and white often. Today I am wearing a tunic design from SOFT SURROUNGINGS. I do not believe the top is currently available online…but originally came in several colors. What is great about this top is I wear it as a jacket or a tunic and some might wear it as a dress with sandals ….and of course, with a slip underneath. It works all year for me as a top.
This is how I might look heading out to business meetings during the week. The pants are the most popular pant at Soft Surroundings called THE METRO LEGGINGS…it fits like a pant and not like a legging! I have them in blue, white and black because it is a great fit and comfortable denim pant. With the right fit in a pant, wearing white is slimming and does not make you look larger as some will say. It is all about the fit…not the white.
I love to pop color with accessories. This bag is larger and perfect for work as I can carry my IPAD and calendar in it. It even holds a file folder or two.
My bushes like to pop a little red as well!
Can you tell I often gain inspiration from nature!
For the style above, I am wearing this necklace designed and created with hand blown beads from SUSAN BUTLER. The picture here is from when I wore it last week as well…I love this necklace!
There are so many styles we can do with black and white…it works all year long!
