Simple Spring Style After 50


By Susan "Honey" Good

 “One should either be a work of art, or wear a work of art.” ― Oscar Wilde

How would you define your personal style, dear readers? Is style something that matters to you at this point in your life?

I've been considering these two questions and trying to define what the answers are for me. How would I define my personal style? I believe I would say that I like to combine pieces that are timeless and sophisticated in ways that are new and unexpected.

My "outer" style reflects the inner me. I like to think of it as elegant and confident with a generous serving of joy and joie de vivre!


Does style matter to me? You bet! I spend the majority of my time working on my "inner" beauty but I do believe that it's OK and even desirable for my "outer" beauty to reflect the hard work I've done to become the woman I now I am.

What do you think? Where do you shop? What looks do you love? I wish we could sit down and have coffee and "girl talk." And maybe one day we will...but for now please chime in via the comment section below or head over to social media and tell me what you think about style!


On a somewhat unrelated note, I've recently redone the dining room in my Chicago home, pictured here. The "style" now feels more authentic, the bright poppy tone of the below painting replaced two stoic paintings that didn't feel right. What do you think?

I'd like to invite you to take a tour of my home, virtually. On June 13, I'll be going "LIVE" on Facebook, welcoming you, dear readers, into my home and answering your questions via Facebook Live.

Would you like to attend? If so, please save the date for the morning of June 13 and I'll share all of the details and a proper invitation here, on the blog, this Monday -- so stay tuned!
