Chicos Fall 2016: Jackets, Jackets, Jackets

It's been so great to have some fall breezes begin to blow this week, and I was ready with the jackets I purchased over the summer at Chico's.

I highly recommend that if you are not already a Passport Chico's Customer to sign up for it...completely free and will give you added savings.  Also, watch your emails for the one day pop up sales.  That is how I buy most of my nicer jackets at 50% off.

This one has a touch of faux suede to it and I love it with the THE JULIET PANT!  A perfect look for work.

Now here are my favorite jackets currently at Chicos...there are some beauties!!

Keep Smiling!

Products for Women Over 50: My Recommendations

We may be over 50, but we are all WONDER WOMEN...and acknowledge it takes the right products to help us feel that way.  Recently, I had a woman I really trust tell me about some great hair products...and she was right, the products are amazing. However, she was purchasing them at a salon for a big price.  I wanted to use them, but not at that price...so, I discovered them on Amazon for much less.  So, if you have hair which needs some taming like mine often does, I highly recommend Keratase...



Excellent products!

Also, it is that time of year when I wear tights and hosiery often. I am very impressed with these Berkshire Tights for flattering fit and style.  Your will like the FIRM ALL THE WAY TIGHTS and the EASY ON TIGHTS for a cooling fit...fun colors and styles.
Also, remember how much I love this neck tightening cream...it has made such a difference in my neck...thanks STRIVECTIN NECK TIGHTENING CREAM

I hope this helps...I have tested these products and think they are worth every penny to help us feel like the WONDER WOMEN we are !

Happy Tuesday!

Hit Your Style Sweet Spot: Another Fall Trend for Women Over 50 and A Link Up

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

Fall is finally here!  I am so excited to wear different clothing and have new fun.  When I began the blog ten years ago, it was clear most of you wanted to discuss fashion more than anything.  So I became a student of the industry...reading many books and even taking an online course in fashion merchandising.  There were alot of terms I did not know at that time, so I believe some of you may be in the same position. Today's fall trend is called "mixed media."

Mixed media garments are ones which mix different textures, materials, and details in one piece.  Textures are found visually or in the feel of fabric. 

I purchased this mixed media jacket this past summer on sale at CHICO'S and I really like it.  However, I do want share with you a couple of things I learned when first styling it...

Overall, remember LESS IS MORE.
Mixed media has so much going on, it would be easy to over accessorize.  So just let the statement garment speak alone.
Also, one of the fabrics here  is a faux leather...and, it really does not look good with the same on the bottom in a skirt or pant...too much of a good thing! 

However, I love it with this skirt and then with black denim for a fun time out.  Sure it is a trend, but one that stays around and works really well...it is also a fun trend.

Now, this week's collaboration with JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE is so much fun.  I want you to go to her SITE and see what she is modeling for a fall trend.  But, on either of our blogs you can join in if you are another blogger.  Just link in and show us how you are hitting your style sweet spot lately...we would love to see!


Then have a wonderful week!!
