I want to tell you also that there is a great GIVEAWAY that I am a part of, along with other fashion bloggers, that will be LIVE at 4 AM EST. SO please come back and enter ! 🙂, Here we are another month, another My Refined Style Linkup! I hope you enjoyed the last post where we shared what makes up our Refined Style. I hope that I imparted how much I love color in my wardrobe. There was a time when I wore all black. ( Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) However, I always knew how much color affected me and how certain colors looked better with my skin tone. One such color I do not have much of in my closet, is Cobalt Blue. I don’t know why! However, as a jewel tone, it is one I am looking to add. Cobalt and Navy blue are also shown as colors for Fall, amongst the Spicy Mustard, Lush Meadow, Airy Blues and Potter’s Clay, to name a few. ** Image from Fashionisers***
There are many options to layer this dress in the colder months, with any of those aforementioned colors. Pairing navy and cobalt, mustard/cobalt, Lush Meadow ( which is like an emerald) with cobalt, all would look fantastic. Again, the weather is not there yet for me to do so much layering, but you will see this dress again! I will be taking this on our trip to Taos, which I will tell you about in the next post, as it won’t wrinkle and would make for a lovely dress for a lunch outing.
For this collaboration with Karina Dresses, I knew I wanted to try the Trudy Style. I love the bodice on this dress, and how it seems to accentuate the waist.
I am one of the inverted triangle shapes , as i have slightly broader shoulders and more narrow on the way down. Karina dresses provides you with a description of your shape, if you are wondering what dress might best fit you. If you click on the Karina dresses banner on the side, I am an Affiliate and would make a small commision for the website if you purchase. Here are some great FALL STYLES, and check out the FIT GUIDE.
I have a collection of Karina Dresses and I do love the fit! With the retro styling and vibe of the dress, I had to take out my vintage brooches and add a modern touch with my black leather booties. Now, if only I could style my hair in Vintage Rolls!

Women shouldn’t have to follow a set of rules once they reach a certain age. However, the over-40 woman does develop the confidence to refine her own personal style and that’s what My Refined Style is all about!
