Well, here goes. I have finally decided to post pictures of what I am wearing.  I have followed style bloggers for years, and have had my own blog for some time, and what I like best about the blogs is being able to see what others are wearing.  So, I am sharing my style perspective from a blogger who is no longer in her twenties or thirties, but who has now entered her forties.  Hopefully those of you my age, and those younger and older can gather some inspiration from my style.

My sweet mom is helping me out as photographer.  (And, as all bloggers know - taking pictures is not an easy task - and given this was our first attempt and some camera issues - I think we did okay.)

I am a sale shopper.  Everything in this look I bought on sale - anywhere from 30-70% off.  I love finding great deals at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Piperlime, The Limited, etc.  I like to buy on sale, but I also like to invest in things that I will have for many seasons.  For this look, I layered a vest over a leather jacket, which is great because I can wear the vest and jacket separately or paired together and get three different looks out of it. (Also, this leather jacket is one of my favorites, so it will probably show up on its own in a future post.)

I hope you follow along as I post different things I am wearing over the next coming weeks / months  / years.  Plus, I am working on a new venture - which I will be talking more about in the coming months.
