Pam of Over 50 Feeling 40 is looking vibrant in her bright cobalt blouse and and red pants. She’s looking so patriotic!
Sacramento of Mis Papelicos is an expert pattern mixer as seen here with her retro beach print skirt and bold striped sweater.
Hang of POUM! La Mode shows us a lovely white summertime dress with just a touch of red.
Marina of Antares: Alpha Scorpii looks modern and sophisticated in stripes and bold red belt. Love the background on this photo, too.
Terri from Rags Against the Machine shows off a classic, sporty and somewhat preppy look in her plaid red, white and blue skirt and cable knit sweater.
Carrie of Expressive Style knows how to look patriotic and ever so cool at the same time.
Amy from LowcarbHighstyle has a fresh, crisp red,white and blue look. The white blouse with white jeans really works on Amy.
Tamera of Tamera Beardsley is looking as glamourous as always in red, white and blue with stripes. Her accessories, from her headband to her great bag, work so well together.
Jenn of Girl Defying Gravity is so stylish and on trend in a navy blue maxi and red cardigan. I love the idea of a cardigan tied at the waist. I may have to steal that idea from you, Jenn.
Finally, I am wearing blue and white on a weekend getaway to San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. I bought the nautical, striped, boatneck top in Portovenere, Italy last month. I wore it with white bootcut jeans and accessorized with navy wedges, cognac bag, cognac belt and a few leather bracelets.
A big thank you to all the participants in this month’s post. There are so many beautiful women and unique looks!
Next month, we are going to have a little Chanel party. August 19 is the birthday of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, who gave the fashion world so many timeless wardrobe staples—the little black dress, the cardigan jacket, black and white worn together, quilted bags, loads of costume jewelry, ropes of pearls (real and faux), and two-tone cap-toe shoes, to name a few.
Even if you don’t have a stitch of Chanel in your closet—and really, who can afford it – Jill and I just know you can put together an outfit using some of Chanel’s ideas of classic feminine style. So please join us on August 1 for “How I Wear My: Chanel-Inspired Outfit” by sending us a photo of you in your Coco-inspired outfit. Coco would want you to!
