Feeling the Fashion
Earlier in my legal career, I was all about professional attire — suited up, dressed up, designer clothes — lots of dry cleaning. Later during the last few years as a corporate attorney, my fashion was slowly transformed into “business casual” which initially was an oxymoron to me but I slowly adjusted. Now that I am retired and living in Florida, my lifestyle is much more relaxed and fun even though I held on to a lot of the dresses and a few suits for occasions when they may be needed. I am adjusting to what is Florida casual but still with the style that I like. Even makeup can be difficult to pull off in this heat but I have always been comfortable au naturale or with minimal makeup. Don't get me wrong - there are still times when I glam it up with makeup and attire even when just stepping out to shop. Whether you shop at Target or Saks, Marshalls or Bloomingdales, DSW or Jimmy Choo – it's not about the cost, it’s about how it makes you look and feel to be the best you! In this section I want to share with you some looks that work for me and may give you ideas as well. I'm just feeling the fashion!
