Welcome to the Style Your Way to Success Blog!

Linda WaldonI hope you find my blog a great resource!

It’s not enough to be smart and talented. Now you have to create a brand image and broadcast it all over social media. At ANY age, this is not an easy thing to do. But after turning fifty, it can feel like a challenge. This is not bad news. It’s just reality. What I’ve learned over the past seven years as a personal stylist is ANYONE can walk into a room and OWN it when you release self doubt and body image hatred, and dress in the colors and style that express all your gifts.

Your Feedback
I love hearing from you! You are welcome to write comments, email me with suggestions for future articles, or collaborate with me.

This blog is dedicated to helping you look put-together, feel confident and create your most passionate life. Please join me, and the “I AM VISIBLE” tribe of beautiful women over fifty reinventing our second act!

At a Fourth of July celebration over the weekend I was talking to a wonderful artist friend who reads my blog about the topic of confidence, a subject about which I often write.

She asked me, “Linda, when do you feel the most confident?” I told her I feel the most confident when I am fully present in a situation and

Easy Going Summer Looks

June 16th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized|

I work in a beautiful clothing consignment store and many women over fifty come in looking for a summer dress. They want easy going, relaxed fit but not completely shapeless, with some sort of sleeve (do we ALL dislike our arms?), easy care, and NOT made of polyester or other sweaty synthetic material. That sounds good to me, too!

Have you looked at your bras lately? If you’re like me, I aged out of push-up padded bras decades ago (not that I ever needed the padding), and I seem to want much more practical functionality and comfort from my bra these days. Are you able to find pretty, feminine,

Diane Von Furstenberg Style

I’ve been observing stylish people for years. Stylish women have something in common. They consistently leave the house looking effortlessly put-together.
