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.
We know it is a week late…but Jennifer and I took the first Friday of the month off…so here we are today on the second Friday to bring you our best style tip for the month of July.
Mine is about shopping all the great July sales…clearance time for winter, spring and summer. There are amazing finds out there…however, proceed with caution!
I added this white sleeveless tunic to my wardrobe in a sale find from Macy’s and the sandals from Stein Mart…in both places I was provided a 20% off coupon. Here is my July sale shopping tips:
1. Make sure you are getting pieces which fit within your current wardrobe and can give you some mileage. That is why I love separates! I needed a sleeveless white top with a collar…I actually prefer more structured pieces on me for work.
2. Always try garments on and walk out to stand in front of the three way mirror. It is your best friend.
3. Ask yourself in the dressing room…what does the garment communicate about you. Does it send messages which put a confident smile on your face. A great price doesn’t mean a thing if you end up not wearing it or donating it in a few months. Take time in the dressing room and evaluate what it says.
4. Finally, I know the heat in some places would melt rocks, but consider looking over the off season clearance racks as well. I just purchased two beautiful fall/winter jackets…great fit…unique for my wardrobe…and very low priced. At one time, both were over $100 each…..I got them for 60%.
Let us know if you have scored a major find this month! I love to hear what others take home. Then go see what JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE has for a July style guide.
