You hear me preach all of the time about getting outside your comfort zone. However, I don’t seem willing to try a change in a few areas of my life. It isn’t that I am stubborn or even unwilling; I haven’t found anything better. One of those areas is with my hair. I’ve cut it in many different ways, but I always end up styling it in the same way. Ruffles are another “comfort zone” item for me…am I too old to wear ruffles?
Even though you probably can’t see the difference in my hair, I have moved the part more toward the center. I am not willing to do a middle part just yet, but I am getting closer. It is funny that just moving my part about an inch toward the middle changed my looks. Maybe this isn’t visible to you, but it is a huge difference to me.
So, I am challenging each of you to try one small change today. Something that you would ordinarily not do and see if anyone even notices. Maybe it is to wear lipstick or change the color of your lipstick. You could wear a color that you NEVER wear and see if someone notices. Or, maybe you style your hair just a tiny bit different like me. I can’t wait to hear what you are going to do today that is different.
Ruffles are another one of those things that I would never wear before, and it had nothing to do with age. There was something about them that I didn’t like about me, but I loved them on others. Somewhere along the journey, a switch has been flipped, and I am now embracing ruffles. I love the feminine look, and I love looking gurlie. So, to answer my own question, I am NOT too old to wear anything that I want, and that goes for ruffles too.
This pale lilac v-neck shell has ruffles galore, and I love them!!! The ruffles are soft and seem to cascade down the neck and sleeves. I started to put on a blazer, but I couldn’t bring myself to cover up the ruffles on the sleeve. For those who don’t like your arms to show, a blazer would be an option. I am wearing a medium in this top, and it fits me great. Also, this is your lucky day because it is actually IN STOCK, plenty of sizes, and is on sale for 50% off!!! Use the code CYBER.
I am still loving my Isla Michael Kors tote. This cotton canvas tote has leather trim and rope handles. I love the casual style of the handbag, and I think it will be a great bag for spring and summer.
I never thought that I would say this… but I love the wide-leg jeans trend. This trend is way more flattering than I thought that it would be. This look is especially flattering for those who need to balance their bottom halves, such as those with broad shoulders or thick waists.
This is a pair by NYDJ, and I wore these earlier when I talked about how to style this trend. Did y’all buy all of these jeans because the website is now all sold out except for a few size 0 and a few size 18? I searched all over the web and found several brands that offer these jeans, but each retailer only had a size or two available. I’ll find some alternatives for you instead.
I added my Michael Kors zip platform espadrilles to my look this time since the last time I wore flats. The flats made the jeans too long, and I think the platform on these wedges makes the jeans too short. Lol! It looks like the perfect shoe will be a wedge or heel, but without a platform.
But, these wedge espadrilles are a favorite of mine, and I love wearing them in the summer. They are a great neutral, and for their height, they are extremely comfortable. I have several shoes by Michael Kors, and they are comfortable, so I keep buying more of them. Lol!
