Follow Fashion Friday

I am currently prepping for two weeks of Spring Break with my young son. Watching the seemingly continuous rain. Contemplating how I will replace my Google Reader before July. And thinking about introducing you to 3 more style blogs that I love. This month all my links seem to have a vintage/thrifted feel to them. […]

My regular followers will notice I have made a few changes to the Fashion Forward 40 layout.  This also now includes a Link page in the top navigation.  I have always been selective on who I link to, as I see it as a personal recommendation. So I have always written about why I follow […]


It has been a long time since I've done a Fashion Follow Friday.  But I've been getting questions from friends about blogs that I read regularly and felt it was about time I wrote about them here.   Many, but not all, are fabulously stylish bloggers over 40 club.  Thanks to Sylvia at 40+ Style and  Citizen […]


I've been following The Closet Coach as she posts The 5 levels of a Working Mom Outfits.   Today my outfit is from Level 3, which she calls Casual Friday or "everyday" working uniform for those of us in more laid-back work situations. On this day the weather report was sketchy and I had errands to […]

I haven't done a Fashion Follow Friday in a long time. So I thought I'd make a few suggestions based on designs I saw at Spend on Trend last weekend. I love Spend on Trend as it brings such a unique mix of  local designers and artisans in one place. There were some old favourites […]


Happy Easter and Earth Day!  If you are looking for eco-fashion content, check out my guest blog at yummy mummy club.  Now onto Follow Fashion  Friday... I recently discovered a new style blog that I love.  I only like to add blogs I truly love and follow regularly to my blogroll.  And then of course, […]

A few weeks back the lovely Harriet at See Theo Run gave me a Stylish Blogger Award.  She included me with 5 other fantastic blogging ladies.  I think I might have been the literal addition, since I blog about style.  But I have to thank Harriet for not only the award, but also being my […]


I've been following Solo Lisa for quite some time now. She is a local Vancouver fashion blogger and I really love her posts.  Yes, she is a younger blogger. But she blogs great ideas that work for women at any age.  Recently she started a new job and blogged about easy outfit solutions for early commuters.  […]

Over the past year I have discovered several fantastic local boutiques in Vancouver.  I still love my big stores and chains.   But I have a special spot in my heart for the local independent retailer.  I love independent boutiques with a unique approach to style.   And ones that stock quality investment pieces at prices that won't equal your house payment.  Here, in […]


I don't talk a lot about my son in my blog.  Frankly because this is one of the few spaces in my life that is not about him.  But my having a pre-school aged boy feeds into almost every decision I make about fashion.   This morning I wore my new Green Sapphire necklace. It is made of coconut, tree […]
