I am celebrating today because it is July 1, and I thought I would begin with how I wear a white jacket and with my blogoversary celebration!  On July 1, 2010, I officially became a blogger.  I did this in order to write and share with you all I learned when I went through my reinvention at age 50.  I did not desire to be a model…or an influencer…or famous.  I just wanted to help others with information I had to discover on my own.  I found such joy during and after the reinvention and I wanted that joy to be shared.  Life after 50 is a great time of life!

The real mission and purpose of this blog has always been to inspire readers to look and feel their best over 50.  I always wanted to inspire with words and not images, but actually, learning some about photography for the blog has given me a new love of photography.  The blog has provided friends, passion, fun, and learning for the last nine years of my life.

Yes, it has inspired me as well.  The ability to earn an income has just been icing on the cake, but never the real purpose for being here.  I am rarely as polished as those over 50 models.  In fact, I had to laugh when I saw these pictures and noticed the necklace is askew…never perfection here.

I love to wear my white jacket with black pants…it is such a chic and classic look.  I recently found this hot pink tank at a Chico’s sale…which is still happening..look at the slideshow below.  It is a beautiful color with a silky feel to it and makes this look complete as far as I am concerned.

My new James Avery Beaded Cuff Bracelet helps to make this a perfect, classic look for work and one I could also wear with denim on the weekends.  My goal is to get several of their silver bracelets to wear at once.  I love that look….and have loved James Avery Jewelry for the past 30 years.

July is full of reasons to celebrate, so stay tuned for more.  It is my favorite summer month!

If I could send all of you a bouquet of flowers I would.  They would be delivered with this note:

Thank you so much for reading and supporting this blog!

Your friendship has meant the world and I so appreciate the support and encouragement.

I wish joy for each and every one of you

Keep Smiling!
