One of the reasons I started blogging was to help women figure out how to dress your age but not frumpy. Many women, including myself in this group, put our time and efforts into raising our children, and “we” got put on the back burner. Then the kiddos left, and you might have been left wondering what to do with your time. When you put yourself on the back burner, it is hard to prioritize again, and you might not even know where to start.
Fashions can change so fast, and it is hard to keep up with all of the styles. Rules that we grew up with have been thrown out the window, and women are realizing that they don’t have to look “a certain way” once they pass the 40-year-old mark. When I first started the website, it asked me for my tagline, and I chose; “Age Is An Attitude, Keep Yours Young.” Someone asked the other day what that meant, so here is what it means to me. I’ve known women who were in their 30s, and they looked like an older woman. I’ve also known women in their 80s who looked youthful and vibrant. The only difference between these women was their attitudes. It was not a financial issue or even a lack of knowledge on how to dress; it was a mindset. One thought that she was getting older and that it was not “appropriate” for her to dress in a way that made her look younger. The other thought that she WAS young and vibrant and didn’t let the number of years since she was born to change her way of thinking.
Normally, Tuesday is my try-on day, but the clothing only arrived today, so it will be Thursday before I do the try-on haul this week. Instead, today I am bringing you a beautiful, edgy, and chic look that includes faux-leather pants. More about the pants later; for now, let’s talk about this gorgeous tank top and matching jacket cardigan.
I LOVE the length of the tank and the longer cardigan. This length hides my tummy, my hiney, and any other problem area that I might have. I think it also lengthens my torso, which helps me to look taller and thinner. Woohoo! That is a big plus in my book. I can see wearing this matching set with jeans for Thanksgiving or wearing them with leggings for a casual get together with friends. I am wearing a size 1 in both of these items, but the tank is very limited in sizes. The Petite version has all sizes available, and that might be something to consider. I sometimes buy Petites in tops, but never pants, and I don’t usually have any issues, especially since the tank is longer in length.
This geometric pattern is such a dramatic pattern, and it demands attention. The colors are black, white, and a gold/brown color, and there is a slight metallic look to them. The pattern seems to glow, but I can’t explain what I mean by that. Lol! I’ll show you a close up of the pattern down below.
This photo still doesn’t do the colors of the tank justice.
How many of you are open-minded when it comes to earing faux-leather pants? I saw a friend of mine post a question on Facebook asking if a 38-year-old could wear faux-leather pants. 🤦♀️ OF COURSE, YOU CAN, and so can you!!! I was impressed by these pants and found them to be very comfortable. If I had read the description, I would have realized they would be comfortable since they are made of a Ponte fabric with a faux-leather coating. Ponte knit pants are one of my favorite styles of pants, and they are a great alternative for jeans or leggings. These faux-leather slim pants are chic looking, edgy looking, and can be worn in so many ways. They create a wonderful long thin silhouette and give you legs for days. I am wearing a size 1 in these pants because I was afraid the “slim” description would make them run small; however, I could have easily worn my usual size .5 in these.
Whoops, I almost forgot to mention my pearl jewelry. You have probably already seen me wear this necklace more times than you can count, but that is how I am when I find something that I really like. The multi-strand pearl necklace does all of the hard work of layering for you. However, if you don’t want to wear all three layers, you can unhook one or two layers because of the unique clasp on the necklace. I love how versatile this necklace is and how many ways I can find to wear it. The earrings are a pair of large pearl studs that I’ve had for ages, and the pearl elastic strand bracelet is one that I found from Lilly Pulitzer and has been discontinued.
You have noticed that some of my photos show me wearing pointy-toe black block heel pumps, and some have me wearing red stiletto heel pumps. It all depends on the look that you want to create. The black heels blend in more, and the red pumps are more dramatic. There is no right or wrong choice; it is all a matter of preference and taste.
A huge part of looking younger also comes down to skincare. Since I started using Rodan and Fields, I am more confident in my skin and how I look. I love my skincare, and I hope that you love what you use also. But, if not, then keep reading. After I started blogging, I looked at some of my photos and was not happy with what I saw. I decided to try a new skincare product that I had heard about, and since it had a money-back guarantee, I felt like I had nothing to lose. I started using Reverse, which was the product for sun damage to help with dark marks and dullness, and I started to see my face brighten (and so did lots of my readers), then I added Redefine to help with fine lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness. I have consistently used the Redefine products for four years, and I am flabbergasted at how the years have rolled off my face. Do I look 20? NO! Instead of keeping on the path that I was on, I am literally turning back the hands of time.
Notice how my eyes are much more opened…this is because of the Redefine Eye Cream!!! I use several products 2X a day, including the Redefine regimen and eye cream, and I never miss using them!
