Just because I'm over 40, doesn't mean the "cool gene" has disappeared ;) Though my reading glasses aren't in the photo. It hopefully just means that I've found more balance. One of my fears used to be that the "youngun's" would snicker behind my back when I walked by in a trendy look. Now I have more confidence (thanks to all the wonderful blog-buddies I have out there :) ~ And I don't worry so much about what other's think of me. That seems to be a gift that has come with age ;)
It's also so funny that this fall, compared to one year ago, I might have been stumped on how to mix trends with my personal style. I was always ( well, usually ) blending into my go-to Bohemian style .......
But this year, while shopping my closet, I see so many more possibilities! I mix colors I otherwise wouldn't have considered. I'm not afraid of looking too "sexy" or out of place. ( that's saying a lot in a conservative city ;)
This outfit, though not colorful, is still fun and trendy.
Plus, budget-friendly :) ~ I don't feel out-of-order in this sweater dress (thrifted) paired with my Miley/Max $3.oo leggings. The all-black dress balances out the tie-dye. I feel all "Rocker Chic" in this .................
Plus, zippers on sleeves and funky heavy metal belt, giant earrings (to keep me in the mix) and the aviators give me a "tude" ;) ~ An " I'm a cool-ass" possible milf...............
That is if Kitty Mom's count ;) Tee, Hee, Just kidding ;)
