Welcome to the age of 40!  I am now 43 and still feel like I am in my 20’s.  I certainly hope you do too! I wanted to write this post about Style Tips for Women Over 40 because I believe it is partially about what you wear but mostly about how you wear it. I hope you do not think that there should be a drastic change in how you dress when you enter your 40’s, 50’s, or 60 because that is just not true. I wear some of the same things I wore in my 20’s and 30’s, I just wear them differently!  Just because you turn 40 doesn’t mean everything immediately changes. The further you get into your 40’s than we can…

Spring was predicted to come early this year.  Personally, I am looking forward to it and I hope you are too.  Spring Essentials You Need for 2020 will help you create a good foundational wardrobe for the spring season. You may already own what I suggest or you will be able to see what pieces you might be missing. Essential items in your wardrobe are “essential” for you to build a long lasting wardrobe and are the foundation for you to add your own personal style items to.  Essentials will last the longest in your wardrobe and rarely go out of style. Some will even be worn year round.   These essentials are also for any age. They are basic enough that anyone over 40, 50…

Every season I look forward to seeing what trends will be popular for mainstream shoppers like me. Not everything that is seen at NY Fashion Week is the end-all be-all for trends. The big wigs set the stage for what we might see in retail stores and the styles are not as extravagant. I don’t know about you, but after seeing some of the designers creations I am glad this is the case. After culling through the numerous trends from the runway shows, I wanted to present to you the spring 2020 trends that any woman can wear. Whether you are in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s or 50+ you can wear these 5 trends. Trends Any Woman Can Wear Tie Dye  Tie dye has to…

The biggest question I get when helping clients put outfits together is “How do I dress in between season’s?”  This is the hardest time of year to figure out what to wear because the weather just doesn’t cooperate. Also, transitioning a wardrobe into spring seems a lot harder for people than transitioning into fall. There are a few tips I always give that seem to help in what I call the “transitional season”. In a couple of months this will become the dilemma of us all, so here I will show and tell you how to style transitional outfits for spring. Tips for Styling Your Outfits Wear items that are for cooler weather but are spring colors. Use items from fall to layer over…

Why am I writing about tie dye you might ask?! Well, I purchased the cutest tie dye sweatshirt at TJMaxx and noticed that tie dye prints were going to be a fun trend for this spring/summer season. This is a trend I think any age can wear so I think it’s worth talking about. I really like fun pieces you can add into your existing wardrobe without it getting too complicated. Tie dye is just that! Tie dye clothing became popular in the 1960’s and 70’s.  I personally recall tie dye being popular again in the 90’s along with the frizzy hair and parachute pants!  I will welcome back tie dye over the other two any day! Not all trends that come back are even…

Are you ready for Spring/Summer 2020?!! I am not ready for it to get hot outside but I am certainly ready for a change in my wardrobe!! When you take a look at these amazing spring/summer colors below you will be dreaming of the season to come! I might say this every year, but the Pantone Colors for Spring/Summer 2020 are so stinkin fabulous and the best yet! The Pantone Colors of the Season are chosen by the Pantone Color Institute.  Each season 12 colors and 4 neutrals are chosen based on the top colors that New York fashion week designers will be showing in their runway shows. The colors represented each season trickle down into mainstream everyday fashion that we will be purchasing in…

Hey there! I hope you are making some good headway on your Christmas shopping!  If you are in need of some creative small gifts or just some fun last minute things you will want to read further! Some of these gifts were chosen because I feel like they will continue to “give” happiness to the person throughout the year.  Who doesn’t want that, right? Chick-Fil-A Gift Card I am under the impression that there are not many people in this world who have had Chick-Fil-A that don’t love it! Especially if they have children. That’s why this is at the very top of my list. A gift card from Chick-Fil-A will keep on giving great meals to friends, family members, teachers or just someone in…
