if you can believe it, ladies, december arrives on our doorstep this saturday. this saturday. where has november disappeared? it seems like only yesterday mr. style and i were having a ball on our caribbean cruise. now we’re decking the halls with boughs of holly. forgive me for sounding like a broken record because i say this every year but 2018 flew by in a nano-second. here at the blog, we’re already planning content for 2019. it’s crazy but it’s true. but i’m going to slow down as much as possible and enjoy every minute of the holiday season that’s in full swing.
november was a whirlwind of activity on the blog. but i’ve rounded up your top five favorite posts. are you ready for the reveal? drumroll, please.
it comes as no surprise that the top post for november was all about winter. in this sunday brief, i talked about cashmere sweaters and statement coats. ten items that will keep you warm and stylish ‘cuz baby it’s cold outside. read the full post 10 winter wardrobe essentials.

coming in second place was how to wear double denim. sometimes, the simpler the outfit, the better. and what’s easier to throw together than a pair of blue jeans, a sweater, and a jean jacket? it’s my kind of casual chic as i’m a blue jean mama from way back when.
the third most popular post of november focused on my fitness plan that i achieve with the help of Faster Way to Fat Loss a six-week online program that will empower you to transform your life through simple, effective, cutting-edge fitness and nutrition strategies. read the full post here. i know, i just know that many of you will be asking about Faster Way to Fat Loss come january. currently, i am a VIP member which helps keep me on track with my fitness journey i embarked on at the beginning of 2018. guess what? i set new goals for myself come 2019. you heard it here first. this year was all about getting back into shape and losing those lbs that had piled on since our move to georgia. next year i’m determined to lose ten pounds and get back to my fighting weight before menopause rolled into town. wish me luck!
i was surprised and delighted to find that Home for the holidays was a reader favorite this month! thank you! on thanksgiving day Style at a Certain Age released their first eMagazine created with you in mind. it’s full of tips to make your life a little less stressful this holiday season. there’s recipes, cocktails, tablescapes, makeup tips, and outfit suggestions. all of the elements that form the foundation of a memorable celebration. buy now – Home for the holidays 2018
rounding out the top five posts, was one of my favorite outfits – a cashmere turtleneck dress featured in how to wear a monochromatic outfit. this post surprised me too, landing in the top five posts of the month. there’s always a vibrant discussion on skirt and dress lengths when it comes to a certain age. many of you have firm attitudes about covering your knees. but if you’ve followed the blog for any length of time you know, i’m not much of a rule follower. horizontal stripes? why not? skirts above the knee? yes, please. if there’s one thing i know getting dressed in the morning should be fun! not a drudge. because if you love what you’re wearing, you’re going to feel good inside all day. right? who made the style rules anyway? sometimes, rules are meant to be broken to usher in a new way of thinking. otherwise, we’d still be wearing corsets or hoop skirts.
don’t forget to purchase your copy of Home for the holidays 2018 – an eMagazine created with my readers in mind.
all right, gang, it’s time to get it in gear. wishing you a very happy wednesday!
