What to Wear to All the Fall Events | Fall Outfit Formulas for Women Over 40

September 5th, 2022 by

I know you hipsters consider August 30 the (un)official start of fall, because that’s the day that Starbucks came out with the Pumpkin Spice Latte. But I don’t drink coffee. (Don’t unfollow me!). I’m a tea drinker. So I’m using the day after Labor Day, aka today. I’m traditional like that. I was so excited […]

Trends That Are Out Of Style + Trends I Refuse To Wear

September 1st, 2022 by

My daughter recently wore bike shorts with a sweatshirt to school and looked adorable. A-do-ra-ble. She is 16. And as much as I feel that age is not the main factor when I decide which trends to try and which to skip, it definitely plays a role. Or maybe I just don’t like bike shorts. […]

As I write this, the temperature here in Florida has plummeted to the 80s from the 90s, a sure sign of fall. 🙂 Seriously, though, even with temps still scorching here, I am ready for fall fashion.

7 Summer Essentials to Buy Now

July 25th, 2022 by

There are summer people and not-summer people. This summer, after years of pretending to be something I’m not, I’ve come down firmly on the side of being a “not summer” person. And this is at the tail end of an amazing summer, where we spent time with family and stayed in a castle in Scotland […]

Summer Trends: Splurge vs Steal

July 4th, 2022 by

You know that I believe that trends are essential. If we want to look fresh and modern, updating our wardrobes for the season can be a quick and helpful way to do that. But that doesn’t mean that we need to adopt every trend, and it definitely doesn’t mean that we need to overspend. I […]

Walmart Clothing Haul Over 40

June 14th, 2022 by

I’m not going to lie. I almost didn’t make this video. And it’s not because I’m a snob. After all, I have always believed that you can find great style almost anywhere, if you have a good eye and you are selective. Over the years, I have found some of my favorite pieces from Target, […]

I think sustainability will soon no longer be a niche category, and instead, will be the norm for many brands and many consumers. Fortunately, there have never been more options for sustainable style at every price point and for every personal style. This list is by no means exhaustive, and as soon as I was […]

Shopping Secrets Of A Stylist | Women Over 40

May 9th, 2022 by

I shop like it’s my actual job. Wait. It is my actual job. As a personal stylist (going on 15 years now!) I’ve successfully shopped for women of all sizes, ages, budgets, and nationalities. I have built wardrobes for women in Dubai and Hong Kong and Sweden and Australia. I have scoured websites in most […]

Sustainable Brands Over 40 For Every Style

May 5th, 2022 by

Back in the day, when someone would ask me about sustainable style, my answer was often something like this. “You can be stylish or you can be sustainable, but you can’t be both.” Sustainable style options were limited to shapeless and scratchy sackcloth dresses in hemp in shades ranging from beige to beiger, and unless […]

The Best Swimwear Trends (& Brands) Over 40

April 11th, 2022 by

Trends are fun and all, but if you don’t also have flattery, what’s the point? We deserve both. Bathing suits are especially tricky because we can feel overexposed and vulnerable. A well-made suit that holds everything in and up and helps you relax and enjoy outdoor summer fun is critical. The perfect bathing suit over […]
