Reflections from 2016: Part 2 with Fashion Over 50

I worked with some incredible brands in 2016 with fashion for women over 50, and the first one really took me out of my comfort zone in good ways.





The talented, creative boutique designers featured by ARTFUL HOME are very unique and put a personal stamp on any woman's style. If you like wearable art...this is the place to shop.






I have worn CHICOS for almost 30 years, but this was my first year to join their blogging team.  Love the style, the looks, the ease, the prices, the fun!


Another favorite brand of mine is JJILL and this was my first year to work for them throughout the year.  They offer pieces which build  a cohesive wardrobe and make it easy for many women over 50.


I have also been a fan of the beautiful, soft styles of SOFT SURROUNDINGS for years, and was honored to represent them this year in beauty, fashion, and accessories!
This past year, I was introduced to two brands which impressed me so much with the quality and price!  CHADWICKS OF BOSTON and METROSTYLE bring affordable fashion our way.  I have really enjoyed this association and how it has enhanced my work wardrobe.
While there were many other brands I represented, these were all brands who returned to me throughout the year...because of you! Thank you for supporting them.  I truly bring to you clothing and products I believe will help you feel your confident best!  Here are a couple of accessory brands I have enjoyed sharing with you often:
ROCKPORT'S TOTAL MOTION footwear is the most stylish comfort line I have tried...they made my feet very happy...all year long.
I also was thrilled to support and meet local jewelry designer, SUSAN BUTLER.  She blows her own glass and makes stunning pieces. 

While I worked with many different brands, these were retailers who returned to me throughout the year in order to bring you their latest styles.  I believe what this blog brings to you is wearable fashion perfect for the different lifestyles women over 50 lead. 

Now...drumroll, please...my favorite new happening in my blog life from this past year were my collaborations and growing friendship with fellow blogger Jennifer Connolly of A WELL STYLED LIFE.  She has become a dear friend and we talk almost every day, and our features of Hit Your Style Sweet Spot and the Monthly Style Tip continue to meet the needs of many women over 50 seeking ideas and advice for their wardrobes.  We have more plans together for 2017 and we hope you will come along.

Of course, I completely reinvented my career in 2016 and became an editor for two magazines.  More about that later...

It was a great year and I am excited to see what discoveries await in 2017.  

Hope your New Year is full of Joy!
