Work Wear for Women Over 50: All About Foundations


I thoroughly enjoyed our Blab discussion last Sunday on the power of neutrals with SUSAN OF UNE FEMME  and JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE. You can listen to the broadcast HERE.


My work wardrobe really functions on a foundation of neutrals.  I love neutral separates because they stretch the wardrobe and open so many possibilities. I try to select the night before what I am going to wear the next day...just keeps the morning more organized and on time.  I have this pencil skirt in three neutrals...and, good news, they are on sale PONTE KNIT PENCIL SKIRT BY JJILL.




Creative accessories and statement pieces will help to make a neutral wardrobe fun.

This necklace from CHICO'S and the Eileen Fisher jacket from DILLARDS were both purchased on sale.  I found the jacket on deep clearance out of season and it is just what I need now as things heat up...it is so lightweight...and worth the wait to wear.





News Flash...These TOTAL MOTION POINTED TOE SUEDE FLATS are on sale!  I love how chic and comfortable they are for work.  Highly recommend this new technology comfort collection at ROCKPORT.

Have a relaxing weekend! Keep Smiling!
