Welcome to the one year anniversary of the My Refined Style a special 40+ style blogger monthly link up party!
When Shellie asked if I would like to be a co-host for this special anniversary celebration I couldn’t have been more thrilled or honored.
To celebrate with all you incredibly (refined) women is just that . . . AN HONOR
With that being said, for this special occasion each of us as hostesses were asked to show an outfit that expressed our signature style and how it reflects and/or defines our refined style. This particular look truly defines my style, as I have matured (ok, aged a bit) my refined style has gravitated towards comfort first. I like to start my outfit with a comfy classy foundation and then add some unique layering that says “Trina”. This outfit does just that, I began with this comfy bohemian style dress which I layered over a peasant top and then paired with the lace up flats (also for comfort). If you follow me, you know I’m a lover of hats and will add them whenever possible.
I also feel the true meaning of being refined is really being confident in your own skin. The best part of being in a 40+ (and for myself 50+) group is that we’ve reached that confidence level where we can each have a unique signature style that reflects who we are and be truly happy with it!
How do you define your signature style? We would love to see and hear your story and style . . . so join in and check out all the other fabulous ladies as they share their refined styles.
As always my friends thanks for dropping by. Have a fabulous day!
Monthly Fashion Over-40 Linkup.
This month, the My Refined Style Linkup celebrates our one-year anniversary! We wanted to do a little something special, so we are each sharing the elements that refine and define our own personal styles! We are also happy to welcome a new host, Trina from Tea Time With Trina.
How Our Hosts Refine Their Style

I am a major fan of black, not because it’s easy, but because it’s honestly one of my most flattering colors. I prefer classic lines, but I like to mix things up with interesting textures and details. Then, I like to add just a touch of edginess to my outfits to keep things fresh and current.
Here is an outfit that best describes my personal style. I love color, and feminine styles. The shape of this dress is fitted, I love a vintage inspired look with the color and v back. Dressing for my shape is part of my style as well as wearing shoes that are comfortable and stylish. The block heel, vintage inspired, is a versatile shoe! I do love my floral patterns as well!
I think this look reflects my personal style. Here I’m wearing all my favorite things: flared jeans, cool shades, and kick a** boots! I’m also loving revisiting the deep burgundy lipstick shades and black chokers of the 90’s!
Here is a recent picture that I thinks expresses features of My Refined Style. I like to mix dressy with casual, have a fun and funky piece as the eye-catcher, and use jewelry to help define the look. I always want my shoes to have a little personality, like these black booties. And I like to incorporate trends (e.g., cropped trousers) with classic silhouettes.
Trina’s Style (Our new co-host)
This bohemian style dress, which I’ve layered over a peasant blouse, and paired with lace up flats definitely defines my everyday style. I’m not afraid to layer, I feel comfortable running around in flats (even at my wonderful height of 5’3″) I am more likely to throw on a dress on any given day for just about any given occasion because it makes me happy! I feel truly confident in this little number and just a bit unique which is what makes us all that much more refined.
This monthly Linkup goes live on the first Thursday (12:00am ET) of every month on 7 blogs and runs for one week.
