Ask MSL | Summer Capsule Wardrobe for 60+

Q: I just turned 60 and am having trouble finding cute summer styles that are age appropriate and petite, yet still fun and hip. I'd love any suggestions you have. -- Susan R. We firmly believe that age is just a number and when shopping for new wardrobe additions -- no matter what our age -- we need to factor in our style, what cuts are the most flattering on us, and what makes us feel comfortable and, well, great! Of course, realistically for most of us as we age, we prefer to be a little more covered up (i.e., slightly longer shorts, skirts and maybe sleeves too). Let's face it our skin doesn't look as smooth as it ...Read more.

.....Does anyone else find it challenging to get dressed up in the heat of summer? Hot outside, freezing inside from the A/C. Loose and flowy kaftans are great for a beach vacay, but not so much for meetings or special events. This Gucci-inspired, lace top not only looks chic and professional, but it also works in the warm weather -- or year-round for that matter, just add a jacket. Plus, it's as pretty from the front, as it is in the back. I love, LOVE the ribbon detail! I paired it here with a flirty skirt, but I also wore it the other day with some cropped navy pants -- super cute. You could also layer this top over ...Read more.

Travel | Kid-Friendly Fun in San Francisco

San Francisco is a terrific place to take your kids! From the cable cars to the museums and bay cruises, there is a lot to do. The City by the Bay has a super unique personality too, which makes it a fascinating place to soak up a different city culture, while still in the US. I used to live in the Bay Area in the early 1990s and spent a lot of time in San Fran, but I hadn't been in several years, nor had we taken Christina to one of our favorite US cities. We decided to stay at the Fairmont on Nob Hill, which is fabulous and top-notch with terrific bay and city views, plus you can walk out the door and catch a ...Read more.

Antica Farmacista is known for their luxurious scents and one of their latest takes me back to my last Hawaiian vacay... so dreamy. Hana Lei combines the scents of tuberose, gardenia and jasmine to produce the most heavenly aroma in the form of a candle and home fragrance diffuser. The elegant packaging makes this home fragrance set ideal for gifting (or self-gifting!). The duo adds the perfect touch of luxury to any room -- I have the pair in my office. The aroma from the fragrance diffuser is subtly there all the time, and when I want more I light the candle too. The scent is in the background and not ...Read more.
