Do you wear pants or dresses more often? Most women I see are in pants during the day. You can count me into that group because I have a hard time finding casual dresses that are effortless and easy to wear. I like wearing dresses because they bypass that all important middle section of my body.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pamela Lutrell from Over 50 Feeling 40.
You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best. Last week we shared how we dump the frumpy grandmother stereotype. This week we’re showing how we like to dress to celebrate with girlfriends.
I love how it hides lumps without being bulky. It’s fitted silhouette slims my waist then flows gently into a flared skirt that stops just below my knees. You saw me wear this same special fabric in Carol Turner’s Asymmetrical Tunic, here and her Basic Tank dress here. Obviously, I adore it!
This steel-blue feels casual to me and is soft on my complexion. I wanted to get totally away from black in this outfit so chose chocolate knee-high boots and a scarf that tied the dress and boots together.
The sleeves are gently flared and bracelet length on me with the same lettuce edging as the hemline. If you are tall, the sleeves would be 3/4 length.
Carol Turner designs clothes for women that are comfortable, sophisticated and easy to wear. This fabric travels like a dream. It comes out of the suitcase looking as fabulous as it did going in.
We finally got rain this week which is a wonderful thing to celebrate in Northern California!
Let’s pop over to see how Pam hit’s her Style Sweet Spot.
