How do you react when someone starts a conversation with, “This is what you should do…”? Deep sigh, eye rolls, and ‘unfriending’ often follow. We are free to make our own choices. Examples are so much better than just telling you what you should eat, wear, or do. I share my best life lessons with you because I wish I had known all these things when I was much younger. When I find clothing combos or a routine that makes life easier, I feel compelled to share that good news with my friends.
Everyone learns in different ways. My most effective learning comes from watching something being done well. Observing the women I admire has been a beneficial exercise throughout my life. I may see a woman who has a very flattering hairstyle or someone wearing shoes that look comfortable but not frumpy, or perhaps it is a jacket with great lines. That doesn’t mean I have to know every detail and then go out and buy that exact thing. I look for something similar in my price range, knowing in advance how it looked on someone similar to myself in age, size, and shape. The best thing about reading blogs is that we get to peek into someone else’s life, closet, or kitchen to observe what works for them.
Today I am showing you one of my favorite new tops for the spring season. It is a Clara Sunwoo tunic in size medium, and the color is called Dazzling Blue from My Fair Lady. The dazzling blue and the little ruffle detail at the end of the sleeves are delightful. I can wear this top with white or black smooth front dressy pants. I would never leave the house in a smooth fitting top like this without my Shapeez Ultimate bra. It smooths and supports me from shoulders to hip while being very comfortable. Never ignore the importance of proper foundations.
I am wearing the top with crepe pants. These pants are so much more comfortable and flattering than leggings since they skim the body rather than showing every bump. The handbag is old. The VANELi Aliz Slingback Pumps are old from Nordstrom. I invested in the shoes because this style can be worn with dressy looks right on down to cropped faded jeans. They are comfortable, stylish, and the heel isn’t too high. The inspiration comes from a Chanel two-tone shoe that remains a classic.
