Welcome to a new collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us…the grandmothers, the professionals, the retirees, the volunteers… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be and we hope to encourage you with specific, step-by-step guidelines right here every Sunday. We would like to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence!
Each Sunday, we will bring to you a scenario we face each week and show you our step-by-step process as we decide what to wear…you will see on our individual blogs how we handle the challenge and seek our personal sweet spot for the day!
I love brunch...don't you...especially on the weekend! Some of the photos I will feature today are actually about EASTER BRUNCH...but more about that at the end.
We are discussing what to wear to Saturday brunch which is often more casual than Sunday or holiday brunch. I have seen some ladies come on Saturday looking as though they just rolled out of bed. I am familiar with that style...I honestly used to do it. I would dress my precious children so nicely, but not leave time or care for myself. So, now, though it is Saturday, I take time to look my best!
Plus we enjoy the meal and the company more when we are confident and can enter the room with a smile.
The bracelet is also from SOFT SURROUNDINGS JEWELRY ON SALE.. And I selected my black ballet flats...which I love for casual style.
If I take the time to look my best on a Saturday, then brunch may easily be at the SWEETFIRE KITCHEN AT THE LA CANTERA RESORT. And not at a pancake house. Why not eat in a special place when I am dressed for special time with family or friends? (And the food is so delicious there!)
THE SUNSET TOPPER is lightweight and designed for confidence with a flattering fit...in fact is great to wear for shopping after brunch. Much better than going home in an old tee shirt or sweat shirt. Good to have a Soft Surroundings nearby in THE SHOPS OF LA CANTERA.
