Jane's Jottings

Goodness, where did April go?! It's been a busy month.

It started with my 60th birthday. Hmmm...60, that number of years sound a bit surreal! Haha. I celebrated by upgrading my exercise pants to modern leggings (from looser fit pants)! And going away for a couple of days, with my husband, to a lovely hotel at Port Stephens (a few hours drive up the coast). This is what I wore for my birthday dinner:

I've also been busy with new and regular clients, doing Colour Analyses, Style Discoveries, Wardrobe Workouts and Seasonal Wardrobe Updates (Services & Workshops). As well as weekly shifts at the Decjuba Avalon women's clothing store.

This month I've answered a reader's question about covering upper arms in summer.

I'm now getting ready to head off to the UK and Europe for a couple of months. Watch out on Instagram or Facebook for posts of outfits from my travel wardrobe.

I'll be back at work on Monday 22nd July. However, if you want to send me a message before then, I will be periodically checking my emails (I won't have access to my phone).

Enjoy this month's Style Snippets. Yours in style

Q: How to hide upper arm flab in summer? from Rea of Philadelphia, PA, USA
I recently turned 75 and my upper arms are wrinkled and flabby despite using weights when I exercise. I have many summer dresses without sleeves. How can I wear them without feeling self-conscious?

A: This is a great question from Rea! Many women (including me) prefer to cover their upper arms, especially as they get older. I give some answers here.
