I’m wearing the perfect plum color for Spring and I’m bringing you not one, but two fashion linkups in today’s post! Months ago I signed on to co-host Thursday Fashion Files and wouldn’t you know it…I picked the one Thursday in March where we also run My Refined Style.
Soooo, you can just count yourself doubly fortunate to have twice the fun this week! Make sure to scroll all the way down to catch all the fashion goodness I’ve got to share with you today in both linkups.
Spring is in the air and for some of you snow bunnies it’s not a minute too soon! This is that funny time of the year when you are itching to break out your warm weather clothes, but the elements don’t always want to cooperate. Plum is the perfect color for this time of the year because it has the depth of winter, but also the floral notes of Spring.
For this everyday casual look I chose a peter pan color top and dark washed denim “skinny” jeans. Here’s a tip for wearing skinny jeans over 40. Skinny jeans don’t have to cut off your circulation to be flattering. In fact, they are much more flattering when they don’t cut deep creases into your leg. Choose a light-weight fabric with some stretch that skims the body instead of clinging to it.
The accessories carry the plum notes throughout this outfit. You’ll notice that I’m wearing the same multi-colored belt that I wore in a post earlier this week. Do not be afraid to purchase vivid, multi-colored accessories. You will be surprised how easy they work with multiple outfits when your wardrobe pieces are kept classic.
It’s hard to believe we’ve already arrived at week six of the My Refined Style Fashion Over 40 Linkup…my how time flies when you’re having so much fun!
