A New Me

Hi everyone! I'm starting this little blog in hopes of jump starting my much-needed fashion makeover. I love clothes and have a tendency towards lace and pink, but I'm trying to expand my horizons while still keeping that romantic touch.
I'm linking up with Patti from Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.
  I know this is a really plain outfit ~ pink tee and a gray maxi skirt.  The last few years I've been going through a lace and frills phase, so  this is such a refreshing change. I have a birthday coming up this month and I decided to celebrate with a new look.  I'm also celebrating the fact that I'm officially in menopause ~ yep, it's now been over a year since my last visitor and aside from the hot flashes I couldn't be happier.
Love my leopard flats!
I have to figure out how to get better pictures.  All I have is a rinky~dink camera, and  myself to take photos.

  1. Welcome to Visible Monday, Laurie! I like your simple, pretty outfit and chic flats. Please come again, and have a wonderful week.

  2. Congratulations on this new journey and phase of life! Have fun with it! Love the soft shades and leopard anything rocks in my book!

  3. So nice to meet you, Laurie! You'll find lots of support among the Visible Monday crowd. I think pastels really suit your skin tone and your face reminds me of Helen Mirren - a great beauty at any age. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog ;-)


  4. Hey Laurie,

    I´m very thankfull, that I can be a part of Pattis Visible Monday just like you and all the beautifull stylish ladies.
    Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comment.
    I love pastels like you. The skirt is wonderful. Your animal print flats are very cute. You have a very attractive smile :)

  5. So nice to meet you! You've come to exactly the right place to show up and out (just a little!) on Mondays! You have the figure to wear anything you want, so you should have quite a lot of fun. Transitioning to a little bit of minimalism? Me, too, so I'll follow your progress with interest.
    How long has it been since anyone told you that you look like a young Helen Mirren? (That bodes well for your future!)
    Simple pink and gray on a blonde ... lovely!
