My Fashion Style

Source: via Susan on Pinterest

I wear classic styles and rarely go the trendy route.  Oh, I may buy a trendy
accessory to add a bit of pop to an outfit, but I never go out on an edge.
I keep clothes for years.  You can still find corduroy Bermuda shorts hanging
in my closet.

I love polo shirts and have them in all colors ~ especially pink.
They are an essential of my daily "uniform" and if I want to dress the look
up I just add a simple strand of pearls or a pretty ribbon belt.

I don't like to wear lots of jewelry.  I wear my Tiffany white gold bracelet,
my watch, my engagement, wedding and anniversary band and simple
diamond studs and that's it.  Sometimes I will add that simple strand of pearls
or a fun little bracelet like this one.  My jewelry box is sparse and has not
changed over the years.

I love my LL Bean Camp Mocs and have worn them for years.  In my mind,
they never go out of style.  I still have a pair of Bass Weejun penny loafers in
my closet too.  Told you ~ my closet is like an antique store :D

Ballet flats are a favorite of mine.  I wear them with skirts, jeans and
shorts too.  Everyone plie!

Boat totes are something we buy in several colors.  LL Bean totes last
forever and we have some relics of those too that have been toted around
the country for years and have spent lots of time in the washing machine.
I can toss in items from the market or books from the library and still have
room for my wallet and keys.

But I can't bring a boat tote to a dinner party or a wedding ~ so that's when
a cute little clutch bag is the perfect addition.

I like the stripes and would wear this look, but the dress would have to be
a couple of inches longer!

And of course ~ there is always more than one little black dress
in my closet!

A simple Bob with bangs is my favorite hairstyle.
I wear my hair like this but  longer.  It skims my shoulders
so that I can easily change it to this style ...

I just pull it back into a ponytail and go.   Well, that's it ~ my
fashion style.  I have not changed it much over the years.  It may be
predictable, but I sure do get a lot of mileage out of my wardrobe!

  1. I think I have a good vision of how you look now! I love the classics but I do buy fun things once in awhile. And they grow old, I can't throw anything out!!

    Have a wonderful weekend, Susan!


  2. Looks like it works well for you. I have reached an age where comfort is very important. I look back on those high heels and wonder how I did it :)

  3. I like all your samples. I have pair of those white culotte pants and a stripe t shirt too.

    3 little black dresses- just in case.

    its good to be ready when an occasion arises so we dont have to drive ourselves crazy with , " what am I gonna wear??" lol

  11. You and I like a lot of the same things. Lots of blue and white striped knit tees in my closet, and yes, there is a pair of Bass weejuns from the 70s that I still wear. I've had the souls replaced twice, but the leather is still great. Perfect winter shoes! ;-) Afraid my wardrobe stays the same year after year. Lots of linen for the summer months. Happy Pink Saturday.......Sarah
