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’s September Issue (kidding, for now, about that last thing).
For my contribution, I chose a merry mix of colors and patterns. I am wearing a Karina Rita wrap dress in black and white – Karina dresses are my go-to pieces, always fresh looking and figure-flattering. I topped it with my Trina Turk coat-of-many-colors (similar), purchased via online consignment.
The vintage brass necklace (sim) was thrifted ages ago, and the funky Cydwoq booties (sim) are via eBay. I love the spiderweb pattern on the boots and the way it contrasts with the coat. A gorgeous vintage bracelet (sim) from Bella’s Etsy shop finishes the look. I have a slightly annoyed look on my face, like my coffee was served cold – but really, I am happy as a clam at high tide.
Now, let’s see what your style is today!
Please visit at least two other links and share the ♥ by leaving a comment.
Stay fabulous, and show us your refined style,

That is a wonderful coat! I would consider my style to be very “unrefined” 🙂

Lots of colour, lots of print, cool ankle boots and jewellery – this is why I could never adopt a minimalist style, I love everything going on in this outfit, Patti! xxx
this would look great on you too, C. – maybe with a fabulous beret. xox
I love you in print overload! That coat was such a great purchase.
thanks Suzanne. i do like the coat more all the time : >
First of all , I love the boots, what a cool style and a height I can wear. I have been boot obessing lately! Great matching of prints here and I love the style of the overcoat. I need to try pattern mixing.
thanks Jess. These are my favorite, funkiest boots, xox.
