How To Hide A Tummy Over 40

July 27th, 2023 by

The only time I truly loved my tummy was when I was pregnant. Then, there was a beautiful reason for the roundness. The rest of my life, I just kind of tolerated it. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t flat, either. And then menopause hit. And while I’m still slim, my waistline has expanded and […]

Plus Size Style Principles

July 24th, 2023 by

Ugh. The challenges of shopping as a woman in 2023 are too real. We have more choices than ever before, almost too many, but the options still seem limited. This is especially true of those of us outside of standard size ranges. Try finding a petite top in 2023. It’s harder than ever. The same […]

How To Choose Dresses For Your Personal Style

July 11th, 2023 by

A dress is an instant outfit. And, because it doesn’t need to mix and match with anything else in your wardrobe (except accessories, of course), dresses give us the opportunity to try colors and trends and styles that intrigue us, without going all in.

What I’m Packing For Europe

July 6th, 2023 by

Sometimes, life just throws a lot your way. This week we had a family birthday, Independence Day (I hosted), a root canal, and other assorted challenges and hiccups, but the most significant is the fact that we would LIKE to go to Europe next week and my older daughter’s passport has yet to arrive.

6 closet personalities & what it means to your style

June 26th, 2023 by

Style starts in your closet. As much as we like to think it starts on a Pinterest Board or in a department store, it doesn’t. It starts where our outfits take shape, and that is in the sanctity of the closet. It’s also where certain style dreams go to die. Remember that orange phase? Or […]

The Age-Defying Wardrobe | Quiet Luxury

June 22nd, 2023 by

I did not set out to create a quiet luxury video. The point of this video was really to talk about pieces that transcend age, and that can elevate our style whether we are in our 40s or our 80s. They work for every woman at nearly every age. They also happen to have that […]

Real Life Closet Edit Over 40

January 2nd, 2023 by

The media wants us to believe that every woman has a closet the size of a gymnasium filled with designer clothes, artfully displayed like a museum collection. For most of us, however, our real-life closets reflect our real lives and this includes dealing with limited closet space in smaller or older homes (like mine! we […]

Brands You Should Be Shopping Over 40

December 29th, 2022 by

Ruts happen. It’s easy to get stuck in the same old same old. Wearing the same styles in the same ways and the same colors and shopping at the same stores. It happens to all of us. Whether it’s out of habit or comfort or laziness, it can be easy to wake up one day […]

10-item Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe | Winter Wardrobe Essentials | Outfit Ideas

December 22nd, 2022 by

I kind of consider myself a late bloomer in many areas. I didn’t have my “growth spurt” until college, when I shot up a quarter inch to a towering 5’21/4″. I didn’t have my first real boyfriend until after college. And I didn’t learn to fall in love with basic pieces, like cashmere sweaters and […]
