How to Dress Over 40

Why I started this blog … or “how to dress over forty.”

As I was approaching my 40’s, I felt terrified of what to wear!  Would I be one of those middle-aged women who still try to look 18?  Or would I become frumpy and unstylish in my 40’s and beyond?  What was I supposed to wear? Where was I supposed to shop now? I scanned the internet for ideas and mostly found many lists and rules.

Over time, I learned to trust myself and my instincts more than lists.  We’re all so unique in our attitudes, our bodies, and our lifestyles that universal rules just don’t seem to fit.  Most importantly, I learned to relax and have fun with fashion!

This blog is a place for women, of all ages, but especially those in their middle years, to discuss and share ideas about fashion and style. My main philosophy is that fashion should be fun, for everyone, no matter their age, size, shape, or budget.  

I feel us women our in middle years especially deserve to take the time and care to express ourselves through style.  This is our time to shine, to explore, to create and recreate ourselves, and express who we are and who we are becoming.  

I invite you to take this journey with me as I explore fashion and style into my 40’s (currently 48, 49,  50!) and beyond. I hope that my outfits will give you some ideas and inspiration for putting together your own looks. And I hope my reviews will help introduce you to some cool new places to shop.  

My readers become friends along the way, and I truly enjoy and look forward to your comments and ideas!

    I agree!! the only rule for us women in our 40's and beyond is that there are NO RULES!! i have found that as i have gotten older, I have started to come out of my shell and wear what I want!
