I’m really looking forward to a family reunion this week! Both of my brothers live on Vancouver Island, so we don’t get to see each other nearly enough. Life on the island is relaxed and casual, just the way I like it.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pamela Lutrell from Over 50 Feeling 40!
You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best. Last week Pam and I shared how dress for a coffee date. This week we’re showing family reunion style.
I want to look stylish, but be very comfortable so I can relax and enjoy myself.
Humor is a huge part of our family dynamics. My Dad was hilarious in a snide sort of way. He passed that on to my brothers and I. Sharing laughs with them is precious to me. My parents are both gone but inspired us to cherish our special sibling relationship. Fashion and style mean little to them, but I need to look my best for me.
I love the graphic stripe of this cold shoulder top. Black and white is classic and adds polish to a very casual knit top. I initially thought adding a necklace would destroy the lines of the top. But once I added this long necklace, I realized it narrowed the look of my shoulders by drawing the eye vertically. It created a V-neck where one didn’t exist!
My height usually prevents me from wearing cropped pants, but these were so comfortable I couldn’t resist. I wore them with a black wedge to balance my short height.
Are your family reunions a version of the Hatfields and McCoys? Or a total delight?? I’ve had both in my life. Luckily this week, it’s all fun.
Now let’s go over and see how Pam hits her Style Sweet Spot.
Have a great week!
