Soft Surroundings Spring 2013 Plus a Giveaway

Thank you, ladies, for yesterday’s discussion!  I love it when we can bring all sides to an issue.  I post almost every comment unless it is inappropriate, crude, or a personal attack.  This is how we learn from one another, and, I believe, it is important to hear from everyone.   (Of course, this is the journalism teacher speaking!)

My main point is that women of all ages, sizes, and incomes deserve to look and feel amazing no matter their circumstances.  You do not have to spend big dollars to do just that.  There are too many other ways to avoid the moo-moos.  I can take the same amount of money on yesterday’s flyer and put that woman who might be a shut in, in a nursing home, or overweight in something fabulous and functional,  and help her feel better about herself.    This blog has been about the power proper clothing, daily beauty care, and a healthy lifestyle can bring to your personal contentment.   Clothing is NOT where our inward joy comes from…but it definitely helps!

Soft Surroundings is one retailer which exists to help the woman 50+ look and feel her best.  They give us the feeling of high price point fashion for a mid-range price.  The spring line is joyful as the season itself, and celebrates getting out and looking amazing for warm weather functions.  I still like the fact that you will find stylish, chic, flirty, feminine, and bohemian all in one store or catalog.  Here are a few of my favorite prints this year, but you really must see everything.  Of course, Gigi goes crazy over their gorgeous maxi-skirts. Make sure you register below to win the fun topper!!
Solano Top
Tropical Tunic
Cote d Azur Tunic
To win the beautiful topper I am modeling, you must be a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment here or on my Facebook page and tell me your favorite look from the spring line.  Also, remember Mother's Day is not too far away, this topper would be a great gift!  A winner will be selected on April 3!!  If you want extra entries, then I will give you one per additional promotion of the contest through FB or Twitter or on your own blog!!
Now, have a wonderful Monday and make sure you visit the stylish bloggers of VISIBLE MONDAY and WE ARE BEAUTIFUL and MONDAY BLOOM!! and MONDAY MINGLE!!




 Your "living-like-you-feel-40" tip of the day:  Make time and have fun with girlfriends...no matter your ages!  Even if it is through a fun blog hop!!

  1. I love the topper you are wearing with the look they provide on their website. It's shown with shelf bra cami (needed!) and Restell Pants. I also love the double wrap belt with the Althea Sandal. A winning combination! Thanks for always making me think more about pulling outfits together instead of purchasing separate pieces that don't go with anything in my wardrobe. http://www.softsurroundings.com/outfit/bistro/

  4. This was such a hard decision for me because everything in the Soft Surroundings catalog is literally to die for! I think I am going to choose the Tropical Tunic because we are going to Sanibel Island at the end of next month and this would be the perfect choice for an evening out on the town (or as the case may be, island!)

  5. I don't think there are any Soft Surroundings shops in Los Angeles but I sure do love the bottom top, Cote de Azure. It would look great with one of the bracelets also shown on your post. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I love that topper, Pam! Those are definitely my colors! I'm not sure it'll look as good on me as it does on you, but I may get a chance to find out.
    Thanks for focusing on an alternative to the "Flu Moo" for those of us that may have physical or circumstantial limitations. :-)

  13. I love looking at the soft surroundings catalog. I first heard of them through your blog. Could wear anything in that catalog! I can only afford maybe one piece at a time but it is worth the investment since it would be a "go to" pice in my wardrobe. I love the last one, the cote azure tunic. It is beautiful! The topper you have on is gorgeous! It really brightens your face! Lovely!

  35. You always look chic in your outfits and are definitely a strong voice for getting older with style!! I'm amazed at the flyer you showed in the last post. It looks like a joke in this day and age. Then again, there are a lot of clothes out there that are pretty hilarious.. To each their own, I guess. I think the Soft Surroundings styles are pretty and look comfortable. They look great on you, too.
