Age: 54

Occupation: President/owner of Patterson Legal Nurse Consulting.

Signature style: "Classic and natural. I love to look put-together, but I have to be comfortable. My go-to outfit: jeans or slacks with a white shirt, cardigan, flats and my favorite hoop earrings."

Best finds: "A knit print dress from Ross, black patent Mary Jane flats from Famous Footwear. I also bought some great denim trousers last year at an Ann Taylor outlet for $4.88."

Fashion weakness: "Can I have three? Purses, comfy PJs and cowboy boots."

Favorite stores: "J.Jill, Ann Taylor, Marshalls and Ross."

Fashion inspiration: "My daughters: Emily, 23, and Meredith, 20. They each have their own wonderful sense of style. They've taught me to try on things I never would have thought to even take off the rack, and to mix and match with confidence. They help keep me looking my best — I text pictures of clothes and shoes to them frequently, just to be sure."

Pet peeve: "Cheap shoes — blame that on my poor nurse's feet!"

Best fashion compliment: "There's no way you're in your 50s."
