Summer Fashion Looks From My Favorite Fashion Bloggers
One of my most popular posts to date is Lessons Learned From My Favorite Fashion Bloggers. No matter what age we are, we love looking at beautiful fashion and thinking about how we can recreate those looks. I follow the blogs of midlife fashion bloggers – women from 40-70+, who embrace their age and their bodies. These women dress in a way that is appealing to THEM. Their independent spirit, confidence, and fashion sense inspire me. Here are three ways they styled some classic fashion looks for Summer.

The White Blouse
Jennifer Connolly – A Well Styled Life. Jennifer styled a white cotton voile shirt. Since Jennifer is an inverted triangle shape, she wears one or two sizes larger on top than on the bottom. She wore this semi-shear top over a V-neck tank . She prefers the V-neck because her shoulders are broad. Then she tied it at the waist which she says gives her waist definition and hides any “muffin top” action!

Shellie Bowdoin – The FABulous Journey. Do you wear shorts? You can still wear shorts in midlife – you just have to find the right fit and length. Bermuda is Shellie’s favorite length. She says, “When choosing Bermuda shorts, pay close attention to the taper at the knee. If the bottom hem is too wide, the shorts can make your legs look shorter. Sometimes I have my shorts altered to taper them in gradually from mid-thigh to the knee…The most flattering hemline should hit above the knee cap.” Shellie also goes for the monochromatic look in this outfit, which pulls everything all together and lends an air of sophistication.
