My Refined Style: How To Mix Three Prints

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!

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.
