How do you react when someone starts a conversation with, “This is what you should do…”? Deep sigh, eye rolls and ‘unfriending’ often follows. 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 works perfectly for me, I feel compelled to share that good news with my friends.
We all learn in different ways. My most effective learning comes from watching something being done well. Observing the women I admire has been a beneficial exercise as I progress through 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 that has 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 respectfully 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 Ruffle Cuff Angle Hem Tunic – TU824 in size medium and the color is called Dazzling Blue from My Fair Lady. My Coupon Code for My Fair Lady is (Spring18) and it is valid now thru April 30th for an additional 15% off. 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, front and back while being very comfortable. I never ignore the importance of proper foundations.
I am wearing the Clara Sunwoo top with the crepe pants (Style 709) in a size small from my site here. These pants are so much more comfortable and flattering than leggings since they skim the body rather than showing every bump. The handbag was also from my site. The necklace is from French Kande. My affiliate link for the necklace is here. The VANELi Aliz Slingback Pumps are also new 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 has remained a classic for many years.
