I was recently out to dinner and saw a beautiful woman dining with her husband and grown children. I was smitten with her sense of style and commented to a friend that she looked chic, classic, and age appropriate. I know I am often guilty of buying pieces that are trendy and “of the moment”. I love wearing them once or twice but often regret seeing them in my closet the next season. Following trends is fun but as I head into my 40s I am really working on creating a wardrobe that is simple, classic and ladylike. Below is my take on a classic summer combo – quite similar to what this elegant lady had on the other night. Clothes worth the investment.
