The scene: A busy summer Saturday afternoon–could be errands, a flea market or farmer’s market
The outfit: Just an easy pair of shorts and t-shirt (Ann Taylor.com), but polished looking because of the neutral pallet and handsome accessories (Ralph Lauren sandals at Bloomingdales.com, Ralph Lauren belt at Nordstrom.com, hobo bag Michael Kors at Bloomindales.com, Juicy Couture earrings at Nordstrom.com)
Hint: These short are for those with good legs; longer shorts or a khaki skirt may be better for you. Make sure the fit of this outfit is generous, it’s an easy look–no tight clothing.
I believe that if we take good care of ourselves and put effort into our appearance, that we reach a place where our look is ageless. As in who cares how old she is, she looks great!
Helen Mirren pulls this off with understated, figure flattering clothes, a great hair cut and a twinkle in her eye. A role model we After 40’s can look up to.
The event: A semi-formal late afternoon summer wedding and an evening reception
The outfit: A lovely short dress by Etro in a subdued print (pricey, but on sale at Saks.com) paired with moderately priced silvery sandals (Ann Taylor.com), a berry clutch (Kooba at Bloomindales.com) and for this event, bring out the diamonds (or CZs at Eve’s Addiction.com)
