    I am very excited about this site, since I feel like it was written for me! My style is very classic and sometimes it seems like there are just a few of us left. I very much enjoyed what I’ve read so far and look forward to the posts. Kudos to Janis Lyn Johnson!

        Can you suggest a classic wallet to invest in? Color and style..

        Reply
        • JLJ
          February 28, 2016 at 1:27 pm (9 months ago)

          Adine, I apologize for taking so very long to get back to you! I have always gravitated toward a smaller, or French-style wallet, rather than a continental (longer) one, for everyday use. I like the smaller size because it can easily fit into both small and larger handbags. I also don’t tend to spend much more than $100 on this wallet, because I use it so much that it would bother me how worn the edges are getting if I knew I had spent a lot on it (but that’s just me). I don’t mind folding my bills, not having room for a checkbook, or having fewer card slots, because I don’t carry a lot of cards or a checkbook. My favorite wallet so far has been one I bought about five years ago. It’s a wine-color, crocodile-embossed patent-leather French wallet by Brighton, with a classic silver horizontal bar (which I prefer), rather than their more usual heart, on the closure snap. (I don’t see any exactly like it at their site on line, but they do have one sort of similar in chocolate black with a heart–here). I do have some playful-print, coated-canvas and faux-leather wallets I sometimes use in my summer wardrobe. But for constant, year-round use I really do like my more serious and understated Brighton wallet. As for recommendations, I would say to choose one that fits your typical purse size and color scheme. Classic neutrals, such as wine, black, beige, or chocolate brown work well with almost everything. Hope that answers your question, at least. Thank you for reading my blog and commenting!

            Adine, Here is a photograph of my current (5-year-old) wallet by Brighton. I think it’s in really good shape, considering how much it gets used. I like that the design and materials keep it looking new. ~Janis

    Hi: I’m so glad that Sylvia from 40 Plus style had an interview with you in today’s post. I love the classic with a little jazzed up look and the Florida lifestyle (lived in Boca when I was a child) and am hoping to relocate in Hobe Sound – and I don’t want to look like someone from the tri-statie area trying too hard to look like a Floridian. So glad I found your blog and very much looking forward to getting your posts, seeing your outfits and getting dressing tips. Trish

    Hi Janis,
    I have just recently discovered your blog and YouTube site, I love your Vlogs especially.
    It’s so refreshing to see someone similar to my age on here!
    The gorgeous weather in Florida is a bonus because I live on the South Coast of England and we are only just hitting Spring and can you believe we had a snow shower yesterday?!?
    Totally unheard of at this time of year in the UK!
    Catching glimpses of your weather and local area, flowering trees, shops etc, is pure delight. I loved the way you showed us the food in your local health food store too, probably seems odd to you, but it’s just a lovely change for us in the UK to see something different to anything available here.
    A mini holiday break!
    Keep up the good work,

    Marina πŸ™‚

      Marina, how exciting that you are from the South Coast of England! I can’t believe you just had snow. I don’t think it’s odd at all that you like seeing the food offered in our local stores. I’m the same way. I love seeing the shops and markets in other countries. I also feel it’s a mini holiday break–without having to do all the packing and traveling by airplane! I’m so happy you like my vlogs. Thank you for watching them, and for the kind compliment. ~Janis

    Not sure of your name yet. I just stumbled on your youtube channel last night by accident. Let me tell you, I love this! I am 49 will be 50 at the end of the year. You have really inspired me. I have always been a girly-girl to love class, in everything I do, including but not limited to what I watch. I was feeling like I was at the endby getting older. Watching you with your beautiful natural hair, and all your class has put life back into me. You look great! I love the tea outing, and just everything! Thank you so much for this. I feel like I can still be me as I get older. Thank you!!

      Hi Lady in Pink! (I love your name.) I know how you were feeling like you were at “the end”, by getting older. I felt the same way! I had let myself actually begin to believe the negative messages about women our age that are so prevalent in our media. But no more, thank you very much! I’m so glad you are refusing to believe it, too. Cheers! ~Janis

    I canNOT tell you how much this blog means to me. You helped me discover my “style” going forward for my 60s and beyond. There is no one else that I’ve discovered that is doing this so well and simply. Your taste is exquisite and you know what they say, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!”
    Talbots, Sperry and Brooks Brothers should love you from all the $$$ I’ve spent since discovering your videos! Please keep them coming.

    Quick question…what do you use as a moisturizer under your makeup? I’m finding that both coconut oil and Nourish are just too moist to wear under my makeup.

    I love your emphasis on being as careful with what you put onto your skin as you are with what put into your body. Keep it coming..you can see from all the positive “comments” that you are definitely doing a great service for us all.

    I was so happy to find your blog. I love to wear timeless classics and give them my own special little twists with a great piece of jewelry or a fun bag. I am going to be 68 in February and just couldn’t seem to find anyone who wanted to talk about wanting to look and feel your best when you are not a teenager or twenty-something. I love my life. I also love classic understated clothes, home decor and makeup. Thanks for sharing. I’m looking forward to seeing more from you.
