Ann from the USA shares her style:
I'm mostly a stay at home artist except when I'm giving art classes. I would call my style smart casual.
At home it's jeans and a a top with some embellishment on it like embroidery or lace and when I'm teaching I throw on a jacket. I don't have much occasion for fancy going out wear. I do enjoy walking and sketching in the many parks in our area. I'm somewhat of a naturalist, and at these times it's jeans, t shirts and gym shoes.
Pamela says: The bold and colorful glasses frames are very much part of Ann's style.

"My style is a classy sophisticated look. I like designers like Channel and St. John"
This is me in my garden wearing the easy sort of clothes I feel comfortable in.
I don't really do fussy or prints because I like clean lines - that's possibly because I'm only 5ft 2in and too much detail appears to swamp me.
I wear trousers or jeans most of the time since I retired from fulltime work, although I enjoy wearing dresses in the warmer weather. I find that trousers or dresses make it easier for me to create the longer line I need for my petite pear shape rather than skirts.
