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.
That’s right…my 2017 style tip discussion begins with a pile of clothes…and the pile grew that day as I pulled more and more from my closet. Cleaning the closet is refreshing…like a cleanse…or vacation…it is invigorating to me …not to mention, inspiring. On Friday, I began this discussion HERE with encouragement to refresh your style in 2017 with a closet cleanse and a challenge to wear your current garments in different ways.
After my closet cleanse, I decided to try another mix up outfit. I took my Eileen Fisher knit dress, and wore it with a kimono and oriental-inspired necklace. I have never thought to do this before and I liked the look.
Sometimes all we need are fresh eyes and to remember pieces we forgot we owned. As you clean or re-organize the closet, think about different ways you can put pieces together which you have never worn together before. It ‘s fun… a new fresh and free way to mix things up a bit. ( I do apologize for the dark pictures…it was too cold outside for my family photographers!)
I also took a huge bag to Goodwill after I turned the closet upside down. I understand my style more today than ever before and have worked hard to build a wardrobe which communicates the messages I desire to send with my appearance. Everything not sending those messages went in the donation bag. Great way to begin a new year.
I hope all of you who try a new way to wear your current garments will share here what you did and how it worked. We would love to hear your ideas.
Now, for another style tip, let’s go over to my friend JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE and see what she has for us today.
Linking up with VISIBLE MONDAY…
