They are savvy, stylish, and successful, funny, passionate, and compassionate. They are Fab over 50!
Geri Brin, a journalist, author, and former publishing executive, is the founder of the website Fab Over Fifty.
I guess she caught wind of my quiet little 50th birthday last summer. Geri invited me to stop by to see what it was all about. I was impressed! I began reading her blog and "meeting" some really remarkable women.

They got excited and then on February 18th, 2010, the Fab Over 50 website launched as "the go-to site for women of style and substance over 50."
"We're the most self-assured generation of women in the history of women. We've been married and divorced. We've raised children, and now they have children. We're nurturers, entrepreneurs, and caregivers to aging parents. We're sisters, aunts, and cousins. We've worked on teams within corporations and started businesses of our own." Geri Brin
Cathie Black, President of Hearst Magazines is Fab Over 50.
Author, Suzy Welch is Fab Over 50.
Travel expert & best-selling author, Marybeth Bond is Fab Over 50.
Geri Brin has talked to hundreds of accomplished women Over 50 to find out their secret must-haves. She is giving a voice to what these fabulous women are thinking, feeling, wearing, longing for and buying.
A while back, I got an email from Sara Wald, an editorial assistant at Fab Over 50. She said that they enjoyed reading TLPC and wanted to do a feature on me in Lexington!
I hope you will take the time to stop by and join the Fab Over 50 Community. You just might run into a few of your friends. I did!
There is nothing that says summer like straw. Especially when it comes to hats!
I love straw hats & I live in them all summer long. It's so easy to grab a hat & scarf as I head out the door.
We always have an assortment on hand to choose from. I just like how they look all lined up together like these. That must be the favorite on the bench.
How "beachy". She likes her straw hats so much, they have their own sunny spot.
Many have long lives and wonderful stories to tell.
This hat must belong to an artist or writer. Someone who enjoys long leisurely walks on the beach or through the garden.
How romantic. This beauty seems to be flirting with the breeze.
In case you haven't noticed I am a hat kind of girl. Straw for beach and garden, a cap for tennis & little league. And I love big sturdy hooks! I have these all over my house. Found one at Restoration Hardware, and the rest at Home Goods! Have you been to Home Goods lately?
This wonderful assortment appears to belong to the adventurous couple.
Simple & fresh. Perfect for the farmer's market.
Crisp & casual, probably a designers place at the beach. She certainly likes her slipcovers, sisal & straw. Reminds me of someone...in Texas.
When Victoria Amory entertains at home by the pool, she provides her guests in the sun with beautiful hats that compliment her table setting. I love that Victoria!
To me, there is nothing better than sitting on the beach, toes buried in the sand, hat pulled down low, a good book in hand.
For more splendid straw, join my good friend cotyfarquhar by the sea....
A little cleaning tip for light or white straw hats. 1 glass of water and juice of 1 lemon.
Combine water & lemon in a spray bottle. Spray or lightly brush your hat, inside & out.
Leave to take effect for a few minutes, then rinse with clean water.
