Hit Your Style Sweet Spot: How Women 50+ Can Look Cool in Summer Heat

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 past week has been our hottest week this summer…really hot …over 100! Jennifer and I discovered in a phone conversation that California and Texas were under a similiar heat wave…thus the topic was born. It is always a challenge to look professional and not sweat at the same time.  So, I was so excited to find this new TRAVELERS KNIT JACKET AT CHICOS!

I was shocked when I touched it…the knit is so lightweight!  Yet, it looks heavier.  It will be a great transition piece into fall.  For a very hot day, I can wear it with a pencil skirt.  But, I really like it with the SO SLIMMING PANT, also at Chico’s.

I added my new BALLET FLAT EXCLUSIVE TO MACYS from Anne Klein at Macy’s. 

Fabrics make all the difference when it’s hot outside…and this is a new one for me in the summer…but I really like it!

Now let’s go see what JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE is wearing to stay cool…and look cool.


SO SLIMMING ANKLE PANT (only petites left online)


Have a wonderful start to your week!



  1. That's an awesome looking jacket! It looks like a cozy, warm fabric. What a pleasant surprise to learn it's multi seasonal. I'm really looking forward fall clothes and weather. This has been a real scorcher. I need to get in and see the new Chico's fall line! It looks amazing. Those so slimming pants are my favorite!!

  2. I was shocked when I touched it…so light…it is perfect for my climate and you are right that it is multi-seasonal. The website pictures it with a turtleneck! I will probably do that later. Thanks Jennifer!

  3. That's a fabulous look, Pam! What a great black & white jacket! You'll get so much wear out of it!

    I saw some fabulous black & white palazzo pants at Chico's before our trip, but sadly they didn't have them in my size anymore. Black & white is such a great combo!
