Fashion Resolution: Resolve to Always Look Your Best!

This is my last fashion resolution for the week…next week, I look forward to discussing personal resolutions which include annual goals for this blog!!
Today, I just want to encourage you to take time and look your best no matter where you are headed.  I have written before about the importance of fixing up for running errands.  Today, I want to encourage you to always look great for your significant other and take time to date!!  Despite all the chaos around us this month, Mr. B and I have made it to a Spurs NBA Game and to the opening day of Les Miserables.

This is one outfit I enjoyed when we were out and about.  It includes a tunic blouse from Lane Bryant with a touch of bling on the collar, and a Chicos Travelers pants and jacket…very comfortable for sitting in stands or theaters.
I hope all of you have a wonderful New Year’s weekend and ring in 2013 with laughter and joy.
This lovely couple…my son and his high school and college sweetheart…will be wed on Sunday, so the weekend is packed.  I will return next week, hopefully, with some fun pictures and new posts.  I look forward to seeing you then.
Happy New Year!


  1. I really like your casual look, Pam - that's a gorgeous top. And I'll be thinking of you this weekend, with your joyous occasion at hand! xoxoxo

  2. Pam, this is a wonderful example of a simple ensemble that still looks so elegant and put-together! I agree, we don't have to dress "to the nines" every day, but looking pulled together always IS do-able.

  3. And have fun at the wedding! You must be so excited!!

  4. I like just about everything in the first photo. The entrance looks inspiring and your outfit so smart esp the pants.This shape fits you greatly. Congratulations,for your son's wedding .It's so promising to see young couples start their common life journey!You must be so full of emotions.

  5. I agree, Pam that its important to always look your best even when just running a couple of quick errands. I notice that if I don't put any effort into my appearance, that I enjoy my time less, I avoid looking at people and interacting with them. If I don't make an effort to look nice, I'm in a hurry to get home and change my appearance. I don't want to do that! I want to be engaged in every moment of my life.

    1. You are so right Lisa! Thanks for putting my thoughts into the appropriate words. Happy New Year everyone!

  6. Gorgeous outfit! Love the blouse!
    Congrats on your son's upcoming wedding, and Happy New Year to you and yours!

  7. You look so cute. Trying to get hubby to go to Les Miserables but don't think it's going to happen. He is more of an action-hero kinda movie guy.

  8. Lovely simple outfit. You look very good. Enjoy the wedding celebrations.

  9. What a beautiful couple your son and future DIL make!
    You are right - it is important to always look one's best. Sometimes dressing up a bit gets me out of a funk.
    Enjoy the wedding! I am sure it will be a lovely event - and an unforgettably special day.

  10. Love Chico's Travelers. Versatile, comfortable, and easy to care for.

    Congrats on the upcoming festivities. How exciting! Enjoy every moment, and happy new year!

  11. Good reminder about making that little extra effort. I always feel better with at least a little make-up and a pair of earrings. I feel naked without earrings!

    I'm sure the wedding will be gorgeous, and you'll breathe a big sigh of relief when it's over! Enjoy!

  12. You look fabulous!!! Have much fun at the wedding!! Looking forward to pix!!!

  13. ha, you just reminded me that I have a blinged out collar shirt in my closet just waiting to be worn
    I hope all goes fabulously with the wedding this weekend

  14. Happy New Year, Pam! And all the very best for 2013.

  15. This is my absolute favorite outfit of yours. It's so simple yet chic and elegant. Gorgeous.
