We’ve all said it: “I wish my style were like [fill in the blank].” Common names that my clients fill in are Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington (more specifically her character Olivia Pope from Scandal), and Meryl Streep. So what is it about these women and other over 40 style muses that we want to emulate? […]
Spring Break is America’s casual cousin to Europe’s resort season. Women venture off to a new locale for much deserved R&R. Whether it’s a sunny beach, an island cruise, or mountain ski resort, we still want to look our best with minimal effort. These three lookbooks have something for every budget. Feel free to make comments, […]
Who vacations in NYC in January? ME! My honey surprised me with a birthday weekend trip (he’s the best). And what a trip it was. We hit fancy French restaurants, visited the Jacqueline de Ribes couture dress exhibit, and strolled through Central Park as kids sledded past screaming joyfully. I’ve lived in Texas weather so long (it’s 70 […]
Most New Year resolutions focus on goals or activities designed to make us look and feel better about ourselves. And no wonder! There are a lot of impossible standards that women (especially #over40) feel the need to conquer. But there’s no need to turn to risky procedures or money-wasting trends and gimmicks. Below are the […]
Are you in a “black rut” when it comes to party dresses? If so, you’re not the only one. It’s the #1 complaint from my clients. My friend Rosy, a self-proclaimed black clothing addict, jumped out of her comfort zone and wore a flattering blue floral dress and purple pashmina to her office holiday party. She received a shower of […]

A term for architecture stripped down to its essential quality and simplicity, minimalism can be a tool for getting “centered” in mind and spirit. Here are a few tips […]
My friend Natalie at Reset Retreat and I were talking about the power of “resetting” your life. This quote from her web site really struck me: “Our program has been developed to include a personality assessment and daily life coaching sessions to deepen your relationship with yourself. Understanding your natural tendencies and patterns will allow […]
As you know, I have a beef with yoga pants. Sure, there are women who can rock them, but I see too many yoga pants fails on a daily basis to brave them except to yoga class– and then only with serious strategizing. My favorite alternative?? The ActiveWear Dress The activewear dress is a […]
I may be #Over40, but my knees and feet are #Over70. Years of high heels, running on pavement and jumping up and down at concerts = daily joint and foot pain. Sad, but inevitable for this former athlete. After two “misses” with running shoe choices (I won’t name brands), it seems I finally have a […]
I could just say “pack black” and be done with this whole post. But that just wouldn’t be my style, literally and figuratively. I own one casual black dress and one black cocktail dress and reserve them for cool weather nights. Black isn’t my daytime neutral, and it absorbs the Texas heat like an egg […]
