Age is an attitude. That has been my mantra since I started this blog. It is easy to fall into the old and frumpy trap once you reach a certain age. I had a friend whose mother-in-law dropped by her work one day and I thought the woman was at least 10 to 15 years older than she was. She dressed old, her posture was old, and she just looked like she didn’t care. In other words, her attitude was old. Why is it that some people just give up? Since you are reading this, I know that “you” have not given up, I know that “you” want to be the best that you can be. I am not the Army, but I want all of us to at least TRY, to at least CARE, and to at least have some ATTITUDE and CONFIDENCE.Take today for example, do you notice anything different? It doesn’t look like a huge difference in the pictures but in person, my hair looked remarkably different. I decided not to part my hair on the side like I normally do and instead to keep the hair parted more toward the middle. The bangs were worn straight across my forehead. I kept thinking that this style looked like someone I had seen before but I couldn’t place who. Joe came through and immediately said that my hair looked like Leslie Stahl from 60 minutes. 😆 Yep, I had to admit that he was right. Lol! It really doesn’t matter if it looked good or not, what mattered was that I tried something new. I stepped outside my comfort zone, that little safe and tried area that we all have, and it was fun! I had attitude! I had confidence! I have on a little sassy velvet cropped blazer from Cato Fashions. Cato calls this the “Socialite Blazer” and they paired it with a sequin tank top. This is the cutest little jacket, it reminds me of the victorian jackets from long ago. It has four tiny little buttons that are incredibly had to fasten and just as hard to unfasten. It looks great buttoned or worn open which is how I wore it most of the day. I don’t normally wear a blazer buttoned, it just feels too “stuffy” for me. The jacket is on sale for 21.99 and this would look great at a New Year’s Eve party.I wore my favorite silver earrings from Plunder, the Mason. These little beauties are only 10.00. I keep a couple of these on hand to have as gifts for emergencies. They feel and look expensive, only you will know they are not. HahaThe long necklace is the Joey and the short necklace is the Annie. I wish you could see the sparkle of these necklaces, they really looked good with the blazer. Speaking of sparkle, I have on three very sparkly bracelets also. The Hugo, the Gage, and the Kylie. I ordered the Ezra bracelet on Monday and I received it on Wednesday. WOW! Plunder must have really been working overtime to get everything out for people to have by Christmas.I will admit that I really love this purse. ❤️ It has an attitude all by itself. It is by GILI and I bought it at the overstock outlet in town. The style and the long tassel is what I love.
My silver gray crinkle camisole is from Maurices. They have the best camisoles around. Can you see what screams attitude and confidence is this picture? Could it be the bright red booties? LOL! The Claudia bootie by Bellini add a little sass to this outfit. These booties are the perfect color red, they have a 3 1/2 inch heel, zipper accents, and are micro suede material. I wore them last year (here) with a similar outfit, I liked my hair better in the older picture.
I’ll tell you a little secret. This blog has helped my confidence tremendously. I always had attitude, but not confidence. Putting myself out “there” has not been easy. Letting strangers (now you are more like friends) tell me what they thought about my outfit has not been easy. Appearing without makeup and with wet hair has not been easy. But I have learned a lot about myself in the process. I have learned to trust my instinct. I have learned to not be afraid of trying something new. I have learned that I am stronger than I thought. I have learned that I can’t please everybody. I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin. And thanks to Rodan and Fields, my skin now “glows!” Lol! Who knows, I may just appear without makeup again……
What have you learned from this blog? Please don’t say, “What Not To Wear!” Hahaha!
