Happy March 2023!

March 2023! How’s your March going so far? We had another huge dirt storm yesterday. I had just cleaned up from the last one. I was so proud of myself, the day after our last one, I cleaned all our windows and dusted the shutters, furniture and mopped the kitchen floor AGAIN!. When we have dust storms our kitchen counters will have a layer of dirt and you know me, I can’t rest until I get them cleaned. I always wonder how much dirt we breathe in and get in our lungs. Oh, well, that’s something to think about later. All I know, my house is now clean again…except for the front porch…that’s for another day, too!

I wanted to touch base with you and tell you that I’m working on some fun ideas for my blog. I have all kinds of things I want to share with you. Things that the Lord has shown me BIG TIME the last couple of years. I’ve changed a lot in how I look at things and accept things. Our world has gone insane and it’s a real struggle to keep a positive attitude and continue to live life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest has always been my motto and I have learned that it is almost a fight to do so sometimes. So, I will be sharing some thoughts on that as well as I am finally getting back to my continuing series called “Women of Worth!” I know so many amazing ladies and there are so many stories, testimonies that make them who they are and I want to share them with you! Why? To encourage you. Iron sharpens iron and we all walk in different shoes, but, one thing we have in common, we need to be encouraged and know that we aren’t alone in our walk through this life on earth. So, stay tuned and I can’t wait to share some amazing ladies that I know. and meet regularly. I’ve always been one to think we should have friends and those that inspire us of all ages. This is a picture of a mom and daughter and I and these two have inspired me greatly. I hope to share more about them along with so many others in the future.

This photo was taken last summer…..and my hair has changed….was trying to grow out and I gave up….who knows if I will try again….when your hair is thick and likes to do it’s own thing…just take too long and too much work! Yes, we will be talking hair… coming up soon!

Do you enjoy reading magazines like I do? I read decorating, fashion, health and inspirational magazines. Well, that is how I hope my blog is for you. My dream is for it to be like a beautiful magazine filled with inspiration, encouragement and tips on how Beverly has made it to 63! Which brings me to another topic I’m working on and that is…aging! 61 hit me hard and I’ve learned many lessons to get my thinking back in check. I have so much to be thankful for and I’ll continue to share the things that I wish I would have known before the 60’s popped up so quickly!

I hope your weather is beautiful and calm as we welcome spring very soon. I have begun to get my closet switched over to spring/summer. I love fall winter clothes, so, spring takes me awhile to get going, but, I’m ready, I’m ready for beautiful weather (without the dirt) and green grass and flowers. Did you know that green is a huge color for the spring in our fashion choices… all shades….I love green!

I have shared with you something that my friend Shari Braendel and her team have designed and that is the Closet Outfit Planner. I purchase mine each season and they recently began a subscription plan which I have subscribed to. If you are interested, I’m going to share a link for you to go to so you can check it out and see if you would like to try it out. I just got mine today since it’s a subscription. (Subscribers get them early) When you click on the link you can read more about it.

Color Analysis (If you don’t know your color code, you will want to take a quick quiz to find out)

I will be back very soon and if you know anyone that you think needs some encouragement in being a woman of worth, a woman of faith or how about just a woman trying to stay positive and excited about life; share this blog with her and encourage her to subscribe so she won’t miss a thing.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Fashion Friday – Spring 2022 Closet Outfit Planner

Good news! The Spring 2022 Closet Outfit Planner is ready! Click here to read more about it. I have been getting one for each season and it’s always so helpful in putting outfits together for the new season. There are even links if you see something you would like to purchase, such as that perfect top that would go with the jacket you’ve struggled with finding. If you are like me, you have many items and you can use this as a guide to put your outfits together for something fresh and new.

With this planner you will receive a bonus guide on body shapes. You will be able to determine what your body shape is and from there you will find out a way to dress that will help conceal areas that need concealing. It’s called the bOd-X Shape System that Shari Braendel created many years ago that has been a huge success in dressing for the various body shapes. No longer trying to figure out if you are an apple or pear, this system is easy and practical.

If you decide you want to purchase the planner at $37.00, you will be asked which color code you need. Do you know your Color Code? There are five color codes and you are one of them; Soft, Warm, Clear, Light or Deep. You can take a quick little quiz to find out. You can click here for a free quiz to find out your Color Code. When you choose the planner for your Color Code, you will see all the new colors that are out for this season that will look perfect on you.

I have my planner and I’m working on my Spring Closet now. It will be a fun challenge to put some outfits together that I probably wouldn’t have thought of before. I’m a Soft Color Code and I love the colors for this season. When I am finished doing my closet inventory and setting up for Spring, I will share my closet completion.

By the way; what do you think of Pantone’s Color of the Year? Very Peri is a gorgeous purple and all Color Codes can wear various shades of this beautiful color.

Have a Fabulous Fashion Friday!

A Great Tool For Organizing Your Fashions

I have purchased the Closet Outfit Planner from Fashion Meets Faith since it was first designed as a new tool for women to have help in choosing their clothing for each new season. If you are familiar with the 27 Hangers program, this works perfectly with it. Imagine going into your closet each morning and you have 27 items that all coordinate together and you are able to make 30 plus outfits from those 27 pieces. Even more amazing is having all these pieces in your color code. My favorite part of the Closet Outfit Planner are the links with each item of clothing in order to purchase that item if needed. Otherwise, you can add your own pieces that are very similar to the recommended pieces.

An exciting announcement was made that for the first time we can now purchase a subscription to the Closet Outfit Planner. Which will be a bit of a discount if you purchased it separately. I’m excited to try it for the year and see how it goes. There are some extras that will be included with the subscription as well as receiving it 5 days earlier than those that purchase separately.

Here is the important part about this. The subscription offer ends on Friday. Yes, this Friday. Yes, Beverly is late posting this info! So, if you are interested, hurry over to the link I will provide at the end of this post.

Don’t worry if you can’t or don’t want to make that decision so fast. The Spring Closet Outfit Planner will be ready to purchase very soon.

Do you know your color code? I know I’ve talked about it many times, but, just in case you missed it. Here is a link to go to that you just answer a few easy questions and it will let you know what your color code is.
