I always say that when you look good , you feel good and life is so much more fun! And don’t we all want more fun in our lives?
Tamera Beardsley thinks so! She’s a great example of a woman who is having a ball with fashion!
Tamera writes a personal style blog that I first heard about when she submitted some photos that I ended up featuring on my How to Wear the Color Linen post.
I immediately fell in love with Tamera’s unique, eclectic style. She’s got that fun, artsy look that many women over 40 are searching for.
Tamera, who is also a jewelry designer, is a natural at putting together playful, creative outfits that reveal her joyful spirit. I asked her to share her fashion philosophy with us because She’s Got the Look!
Deb: Tamera – How would you describe your style of dressing and how has it evolved?
My personal style is made up of chic sportswear with a heavy dose of fun and dramatic accessories. As I have gotten older, I have become just as interested in fun and energizing clothes as those that I feel and look good in.
Deb: Tell us a bit about the 3 looks you sent in and where you wore them?
|Look # 1 – Daily Uniform
I have several versions of this daytime ensemble. Living in southern California, this denim tunic and white jeans have been my go-to pieces for years.
They let me get done what I need to at home and in the studio as well as leave the house in style.
I always have a daily outfit and a collection of accessories (hat, sunglasses, scarf, jewelry, a bag, and a fun, walkable shoe) at the ready so that I can leave the house in style.
|Look #2 – Shopping and Cocktails
I wore this bold stripe on stripe maxi dress to Laguna Beach for a day of shopping and sunset cocktails on the beach.
The brooch necklace is a piece I made using flea market finds and some childhood keepsakes. It’s a fun project to make out of varying collections. You can find a DIY tutorial for the necklace on my blog.
|Look # 3 – Altitude Design Summit Mini Parties
The Summit is a very creative crowd. Wearing this particular outfit made it one of the most favorite ensembles ever!
I bought the tulle skirt in Paris with these parties in mind. I grounded the outfit with jeans as a base. I loved the juxtaposition of the elements!
Deb: What’s the best style tip you’ve ever received?
“Life is too short to wear boring clothes.” Researching the quote, I found no definitive source to attribute it to. I first heard it from my therapist when I complimented his shirt. Obviously, he turned out to be the perfect therapist for me.
