I know we’ve been over-taxed with articles and books about How French Women Dress (perfectly, it seems). But forgive me one more descriptor: this is my French-Girl Look. Simple and relaxed and neutral, with red lips.

Welcome to an exciting link-up for us over-40 fashion lovers: My Refined Style, created by the lovely Shellie of The FABulous Journey. We’re hosting a link-up once a month, that all you 40+ beauties can participate in, and share the love. All you have to do is leave a link below, using the ever-familiar InLinkz tool, and mention My Refined Style in your post. Your link-up will be shared over seven fab blogs, and Vogue magazine (kidding, for now, about that last thing).

My Refined Style isn’t refined in the sense of shopping at only the priciest boutiques. It’s refined down to what I love to wear, what speaks to me from my closet, and what fits me comfortably. Like this graphic tee (sim) with just the right shape, my favorite boyfriend jeans (sim), and my Sofft booties (sim). I’m wearing a slim bracelet and a big faux ring (sim), and that’s it.  Ready for cafe and croissants.


The wind was blowing as you can see, but I don’t mind it; the gorgeous ocean is just yards away. I am a very fortunate Not Dead Yet Woman.

Monthly Fashion Over-40 Linkup
Women shouldn’t have to follow a set of rules once they reach a certain age. However, the over-40 woman does develop the confidence to refine her own personal style and that’s what My Refined Style is all about!
This monthly Linkup goes live on the first Thursday of every month on 7 blogs and runs for one week.

  1. That top is so cute! I love your casual relaxed styling. It’s a delight to be hosting MRS with you Patti!

  2. Great description of being refined, it truly is about comfort and what we love to wear, especially at our age. This casual look is the perfect example, it’s simple and chic.

  3. Ah the French…I was disappointed with what I saw the last time I was in Nice, I fear globalization has infiltrated their chic style and turned them into North Americans. Thank heavens there is always Paris which seems to be mostly uncorrupted.

    I love this chic look. And who doesn’t like a petit chien?
