Pamela Lutrell in fall clothing for 2020

It’s Friday, and the day we discuss cultivating everyday elegance.  Today, I want to focus on Joyful dressing and the role textures play.

I find it interesting that the majority of women most of us consider to be elegant rarely smile.

They are dressed in the most fabulous clothing, but most often look pensive or even dour. 

For me, elegance must include wearing clothing that makes you smile and happy about your appearance.

That can be done on any budget.

Pamela Lutrell in Eileen Fisher jacket and top for a fall style 2020

This outfit makes me smile.  I love my new JJill Leggings with this Eileen Fisher jacket and sleeveless top…along with my Rockport Tessie Zipper Booties.

When I went to my favorite style book, The Truth About Style by Stacy London, I found out why I might like it so much.

Pamela Lutrell dresses with textures in mind for fall 2020

Stacy has a whole chapter on joyful dressing.  She believes joyful dressing includes color, pattern, texture, and shine. I do love the textures in this outfit. 

I can wear this almost anywhere and feel quite elegant in it.

Of course, I would not have worn the leggings to the office before now, but my home office allows it!  Such freedom!

I looked at the textures on these two pieces, hesitated a moment and then thought, I believe it works well!

Stacy London Quote on Over 50 Feeling 40

I really think elegant women do this…they seem to just know what to do and when to experiment.  I hope to develop that part of elegance going forward.

But, when I wear something I love…my face will show it!!

Next Friday, I have another elegant woman to introduce to you.  She has inspired me for years. 

 Now, do you ever dress with color, pattern, texture and shine in mind?  Do you believe elegant women are joyful dressers?

SILVER LININGS

Leigh Anne on Every day Elegance

Leigh Ann has been with family all week…a new grandson came to visit, but I wanted to end the week with her silver linings!

We are both in our 60s and both were laid off over the summer by well-known San Antonio organizations.   

Despite that, we share the belief of taking one day at a time with an optimistic outlook.

LEIGH ANN’S SILVER LININGS:

  1. Enjoying home cooked, leisurely dinners on our screened in patio practically every evening.
  2. Our fabulous monarch butterfly migration season in San Antonio.  (Her husband has planted the flowers that attract them!) This is from her backyard!

  1. Tennis, a passion, and the opportunity to play 3-5 times a week now. 

She has been a silver lining for me…so nice to have someone helping me with the blog.  We are enjoying much fun when we go out and about to create blog content!

What are your silver linings today?
