Celebrating Blogging and 6 Ways To Shop Like A Parisian!

It is so appropriate that today's post about shopping with a French mindset runs on MIDLIFE BOULEVARD for many reasons.  They have been such a major part of my blogging journey over the last four years, and the post is about Tish Jett and her book...she is someone who I have followed for the last four years on my blog and as a reader.  She provides all of us so much valuable and enjoyable information!
I just want to take this opportunity on the actual anniversary day of over50feeling40 to say THANK YOU to everyone...readers, advertisers, sponsors, friends (new & old) who give support and encouragement...I am humbled by the response and want you to know how much joy all of you give to me! 

In my busy life as a blogger, writer, teacher, wife, mom, and grandmother, I fear that I do not say thank you often enough or reach out often enough. But, you all are amazing and hold places in my heart.

Now, back to the business of the day....The Joy Boutique.  We continue to delve into the fashion of French Women.  Today we will discuss what they keep in mind when shopping!  Just go HERE!!

Happy July 1st, everyone!


  1. I can't believe we started blogging just 3 days apart. Isn't that something! I look forward to even more years of blogging along side you in our wonderful blog world. Congratulations! I know what a big deal four years of blogging is!

  2. Thank you Pam!! Your site is an inspiration beyond to women of "our age group" which is forever young, thanks to the sharing of so many amazing ideas !

  3. Happy blogging. I'm just starting and gives me such a satisfaction, so I can imagine how you might feel after a couple of years! I'm with you :)

  4. As a recent reader to your blog, I have enjoyed reading your writing, especially your support of all women with your "I matter" profiles. My question to Tish Jett and to you concerns a neutral wardrobe: how many articles of clothing does the average woman need?

    1. Everyone seems to have a different answer to this! I read one book which said 10 staples in your closet are all you really need. The garments I wear the most are black pants, taupe pants; black, blue and white denim; a black pencil skirt; denim pencil skirt; khaki pants and skirt. These are the foundation pieces I wear the most. Then I have many different ways to do the top. I have a couple of dresses...but I prefer skirts and separates. I hope that helps. I will email Tish and ask her.

  5. Congratulations Pam! Well we sort of just met but the way we have interacted so far is just inspiring and a pleasure to have come across your blog. I look forward to sharing with you 4 more years. Sabina @Oceanblue Style
