fashion flash logoThis week Josephine of Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash.  Not ony does  she have a great eye for true  style, she is  that rare fashion expert  who recognizes the impact of weather on what we wear. For example in the past few weeks  she has  offered a series of blog posts for  packing and wearing clothes on a summer vacation.  I LOVED  her tips on adding   glamour with a gorgeous  beach bag  and gold sandals.  Her lovely lightweght print dresses  as well as  filmy tops paired with linen pants   were a welcome antidote to the crop top/ cutoff short that  some  many style bloggers are recommending for sunny days.  In winter,  she recommended wearing  heavy tights and boots under a dress– a … Continue Reading…
