005crI came across and started reading a few style blogs back in the springtime and over the following months discovered many more. These blogs are intended for women over 40 and 50. The first one I came across was 40+ Style and my other favourites, for a variety of different reasons, are Not Dead Yet Style, Bag and a Beret, The Rich Life On a Budget, Style Crone, Une Femme d’un Certain Age, A Colourful Canvas, and two recently discovered ones – You Look Fab and The Vivienne Files.

Much of my clothing over the past five years has been found in thrift shops but I’ve been trying to define my personal style a bit more as I’ve been picking up the occasional new retail piece and I’m trying to avoid spending money on too many thrifted items for the sake of adding to my mostly casual wardrobe. Finding these blogs coincided with this and I’m enjoying them and the sense of community they seem to inspire.

Anyways, today I decided I’d try an outfit of the day post and I’m linking up with Patti’s Visible Monday series at the already mentioned Not Dead Yet Style blog.
