Cranberry Season!

Cranberries are so good for you! Did you know they have Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Iron, Vitamin B-6, and Magnesium? The moment I saw this cranberry colored cardigan, I knew it would be good for me too!





I have to admit I have gone a little crazy for J.Jill items lately. Their December collection includes so many items that fit with my personal style.






I have already worn this cardigan a couple of times. The color is so rich and the fabrication is very elegant. I can literally wear it with almost everything in my wardrobe.






It is shown on the J.Jill site with a turtleneck in the same color, but I love the fact that it looks good with almost every top I own. They have a 25% off sale going on right now so I think I'll go back for this in black also!

Angel Cardigan

Sometimes leggings, a cardigan, and a tank are all you need to look polished and put together on a busy morning.





Connie Smith owns the website BodyLanguageByConnie with her husband. They just launched the new site this past summer. When she contacted me about showing items from their new site, I declined because all their items seemed way too youthful looking for me. She convinced me to try these two items and I am so glad she did.






The leggings are made from a thick supportive dense knit and they have a shaping waistband that I love. I wear them often for these reasons.




The cardigan has a great shape and texture. I received many compliments on this look and it was very comfortable all day.




The cuff is from my own company. The necklace is by Erica Lyons from Belk. The tank is from Stein Mart by Peck and Peck. The bag is by Ralph Lauren via T.J.Maxx. The shoes are by Gianni Bini from Dillard's.






I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

A Regal Cardigan

The comfort and warmth of wearing flattering lightweight layers in the colder months works well for most of us.



I am always happy to find a new source for stylish elements that add a different silhouette to my wardrobe.




When the Project Manager for the designer, Ronen Chen contacted me about featuring one of his pieces I found it difficult to choose. All of his items are so elegant and timeless.




When this cardigan arrived I knew right away that it was going to be worn many times. The details, the neutral plum color, and the perfect fit make it a great choice for staying warm in style.




I love the back and the intricate details.




When I wear leggings I always wear a sweater or jacket that falls below my bottom. This Amber Knit Cardigan fits the requirement perfectly. 



A special "Fifty, Not Frumpy" promo code is now live: Use   NOTFRUMPY30  at checkout on http://ronenchen.com/us/ to get $30 off your order. The code will be valid through December 31, 2014. The code is also valid on some of the holiday sales and on the sale section. Ronen Chen has superb discounted pieces and it's a great chance to snag a designer item for less.

A Week of Sweaters

Our evening temperatures are now dipping into the low sixties, so I am starting to see women wearing jackets and sweaters when I run early morning errands.



I love the look of light weight layers whenever possible. Summer clearance racks are a great place to find those feather weight sweaters that can be worn almost all year round. Add cute shoes, a scarf or long pendant necklace, sunglasses and a nice bag to look great for any errand even if you start out with a tank top and jeans or khaki pants.

This week I had the last of my summer Doctor appointments. I get all the tests we should have done at this stage of life in July because any other time of the year I am too busy to sit still that long. As I was waiting my turn in each office, I kept looking up to see women studying me. I noticed that almost all the women I saw in the near sixty age group wore a "uniform" of Mom-jeans, a dull colored tee shirt and shoe muffins (tennis shoes). I was wearing the first outfit idea above yesterday. I will be turning 57 next month but I refuse to ever wear the "uniform"!
