My Favorite Over 40 Fashion Blogs

Blogging Fashion By Decade

After my post about MORE Magazine I started thinking about the inspiration I find on the Internet. While I don’t think blogs are a worthy replacement to a quality magazine, I find my regular style inspiration comes from my peers. Inspiration doesn’t have to come from someone your same age, but as we age our tastes do change and it’s wonderful to see fellow women on the other side of…

Capsule Wardrobe: Business Casual for a Teacher

Capsule Wardrobe Corporate Fashion Fashion Advice Fashion By Decade

I love your capsule wardrobes- I am trying to construct one for myself right now and I find it challenging. I work in a school with a ‘business casual’-type dress expectation, but I teach special education preschoolers.
