Confidence with Trends

We don't have to let fashion trends cause us to grieve over low clothing budgets or get down on ourselves.  Sometimes participating in a trend is just a matter of updating or remixing garments we already own! No worries about lack of funds to buy something new.

I have seen turquoise and black everywhere this season!  So I just pulled together:
A fun animal striped DANA BUCHMAN poncho from Kohls...I think I have owned two years!

I feel fashion forward and confident!!

I topped it off with these fun flats I found a couple of years ago at Goodwill for $1.99...tags still on!  The little pointed embellishments were
on trend that year as well!

Next week, I will have a complete book review of

But, let me leave you with this quote from Tish:

"When we feel good about ourselves, we feel powerful, which in turn gives us confidence and, honestly, what is more alluring than a gorgeous facade bolstered by self assurance?"

Oui!  Go out today with confidence and have a fabulous Tuesday!


  1. Don't ya just love finding a new thrifted item that stays in style for years!

  2. Pam, you look smashing in tourquoise!

  3. Lovely outfit and wise words! Your outfit looks modern and current to my eye and truly reflective of your style as I understand it.

  4. I agree Pam...just look to your wardrobe and mix it all up a little and hey presto you have some new outfits :) I love the quote from Tish...very true!
    Have a lovely day. xx

  5. Great re-mix, Pam - it's so smart to check our closets before we shop! xo

  6. Great combination, dear pam.

  7. I love those shoes and the price you paid makes them even better because they come with a story!

  8. Great advice Pam!! Just a little trend goes a long way and makes us feel in tune with the times. Have a terrific day.

  9. You remind me how good it feels to get bolder with color, and turquoise is gorgeous with black - you're so right!

  10. I love trying to create a look I've seen on the street with things already in my closet. It's so much fun. Cute shoes. You have the best luck at Goodwill.

  11. Gorgeous color combo--and I LOVE the animal print drapey cardi-poncho!!
