My Refined Style Celebrates One Year

Monthly Fashion Over-40 Linkup

This month, the My Refined Style Linkup celebrates our one-year anniversary! We wanted to do a little something special, so we are each sharing the elements that refine and define our own personal styles. We are also happy to welcome a new host, Trina from Tea Time With Trina.

Shellie’s Style

I am a major fan of black, not because it’s easy, but because it’s honestly one of my most flattering colors. I prefer classic lines, but I like to mix things up with interesting textures and details. Then, I like to add just a touch of edginess to my outfits to keep things fresh and current.

Jessica’s Style

Here is an outfit that best describes my personal style. I love color, and feminine styles. The shape of this dress is fitted, I love a vintage inspired look with the color and v back. Dressing for my shape is part of my style as well as wearing shoes that are comfortable and stylish. The block heel, vintage inspired, is a versatile shoe! I do love my floral patterns as well!


Elegantly Dressed And Stylish

Dawn’s Style

I think this look reflects my personal style. Here I’m wearing all my favorite things: flared jeans, cool shades, and kick a** boots! I’m also loving revisiting the deep burgundy lipstick shades and black chokers of the 90’s!

Patti’s Style

Here is a recent picture that I thinks expresses features of My Refined Style. I like to mix dressy with casual, have a fun and funky piece as the eye-catcher, and use jewelry to help define the look. I always want my shoes to have a little personality, like these black booties. And I like to incorporate trends (e.g., cropped trousers) with classic silhouettes.


Not Dead Yet Style

Cherie’s Style

This particular outfit I saw on Zara’s website and just knew I had to have it. It was just so different, but yet so elegant and sophisticated. I love to be comfortable in what I wear so this was right up my alley. Pairing it with metallic slippers or slides seemed to be the perfect mix. Casual elegance. I have a difficult time defining my style, but people have described it to me as just that, casual elegance.

Andrea’s Style

This look captures and defines my style which is often a blend of dressy with a casual piece mixed in or visa versa. There is something about mixing casual and more dressy pieces and soft fabrics that makes me feel polished yet more comfortable. For me, being refined means wearing things you love but always feeling like yourself and exuding confidence.

Trina’s Style (Our new co-host)

This bohemian style dress, which I’ve layered over a peasant blouse, and paired with lace up flats definitely defines my everyday style. I’m not afraid to layer, I feel comfortable running around in flats (even at my wonderful height of 5’3″) I am more likely to throw on a dress on any given day for just about any given occasion because it makes me happy! I feel truly confident in this little number and just a bit unique which is what makes us all that much more refined.

  1. Right now, what’s important is that you’ve identified a big idea that will help guide you through the process of finding your goal.

  2. Patti, you always look put together, stylish, and approachable. I bet you were excellent in your industry before retiring. I can’t help but notice your houseplant in the background! I recently inherited one that is in poor health compared to yours. It is from my husband’s office but I don’t know anything about it, including a name. Can you fill me in on your secrets? I am a long time fan of your blog, first time commenter!
