Guest Posting for "Styled By" Nancysfashionstyle

How Do I Define My Style?

I'm honored today to be guest posting for the "Styled By" series offered by Nancy of nancysfashionstyle blog. When I received the word about her series, which focuses on the individual's unique styles of dressing, I just knew I had to join in! Many thanks for her kindness in allowing me!

I think if I were to choose one word that defines my sense of style, the word would be "eclectic."  I enjoy wearing all types of clothing from blue jeans and leggings to skirts and dresses to formal gowns. I enjoy deriving my style from a broad range of sources.

My sense of style began early in life when, as a three year old, I would clomp about the house wearing my mother's high heeled shoes. I loved playing dress up!

In my twenties and thirties, my style was much more formal with business like dresses and suits. Although I still enjoy this look and occasionally still wear this style, my tastes have changed somewhat as I have aged.

I can now be seen sporting flowing scarf tops with brighter colors that reflect a more confident personality as I enjoy being a festive fifty something. 

As an eclectic dresser, I enjoy comfortable clothing, colors that I love and feel beautiful wearing....

And adding a great pair of shoes and a little bling never hurts! Even in my eclectic style I am truly a "little bit of this and that!"

Until Next Time,

This is such an interesting topic, and one I'll spend more time pondering. I am a classic dresser and probably always will be, but lately have been thinking more about a casual wardrobe. I have to dress in business attire for work, but I am also thinking ahead to retirement. When I saw the dress in your 4th picture, I felt like I had to have that!! I'm going to give this post more thought though, because I want to stay true to who I am, but still be flexible and have fun with fashion.

You're sweet Karen! Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I still love the classic style, also, but also enjoy the casual. Now that I'm retired, I won't have much need to dress up, but I still want to stay stylish. Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

Hi Deborah, I liked reading about your eclectic wardrobe, and think fashion should show our personalities too. Love the cobalt blue on you and the black and white floral skirt!
