Monthly Style Guide for Women Over 50





Welcome to the new first Friday event for women over fifty.  Jennifer Connolly of A Well Styled Life and Pamela Lutrell of Over 50 Feeling 40 will bring you, all the amazing women over fifty, their best style tip to kick off a new month.  It’s all about confidence, ladies, so look for these guides on the first Friday of every month to bring some ideas for 30-31 days of great, head-turning style.


Flowers are blooming and the sun is beaming down on South Texas....so in the first week of May, I am thinking heat...how to look my best as the temps go up and up and up.
When looking for ways to ditch the jackets and cardigans, think kimonos!  I have found them to be totally accepted in the workplace and a way to bring a touch of creativity to your style. 
This short kimono is the AUTUMN BLOSSOM KIMONO from Chico's ...I purchased it on sale and it is still on sale.  I like to have several different lengths in my closet.  Styling with a kimono in place of a more traditional piece adds a touch of creativity and fun to fashion...not to mention they are much, much cooler to wear.


I am wearing it with my favorite French Kande necklace...this stunning Marie Antoinette medallion!

My first Monthly Style Guide is one word: Kimono...for creativity...cool breezes...and fun!

Now let's hop over to JENNIFER AT A WELL STYLED LIFE to see what her monthly guide is!






Have a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!

  2. Please consider offering door-to-door services for those of us who spend most of our lives in PJs and slippers working at home, then suddenly find ourselves in need of real clothes (ensembles if you will) for events. :)

    1. How much fun would that be...to just go visiting door to door! I hope for now some of what Jennifer and I are doing will help and inspire you to leave the PJs behind! Always send your suggestions...we need them!
