When it comes to style, Billy Baldwin may have said it best: “Be faithful to your own taste because nothing you really like is ever out of style.”
I think this quote speaks to us as women over 60. In this season of our lives, it’s not always about keeping up with the latest trends, but rather, knowing ourselves and what we like and feel confident in.
I’ve shared the story before about how, several years ago, I hosted a small group of women – all over 60 – at my home and was shocked to discover that many of them felt that, with age, they had become ‘invisible.’
2018 is upon us. The New Year brings to our minds personalized thoughts, especially the ones about turning over a new leaf. We are determined to be resolute in our new resolutions. I think it is far wiser to take time to revel in positivity and to look within yourself and value the “you in you.”
Today I wanted to share some fashion faux pas for women over 60 but in a little different way. This list of fashion no-nos that I have put together is based on one overarching theme.
I think it is the biggest faux pas of all, and therefore worth mentioning before we go any further. And that is, thinking that being fashionable when you’re over 60 is synonymous with looking younger.
I truly do not know how to live in the past, save for my loving and happy memories and the lessons I learned along the way. I review these in my mind when I am reminded. Other than that, I have no time to waste on the past.
Women should dress their age. Children should be seen and not heard. And men should bring home the bacon.
More women than not, in their 60s and beyond, wholeheartedly embrace life.
Because of my lifestyle, I have met hundreds of women in their 60s, 70s and beyond who I notice are enjoying life, even those living under unpleasant circumstances.
There are two types of change – those changes thrust upon us, leaving us no choice, and those that we make by choice – both with either a positive or negative outcome.
I have, as have you, no doubt, been faced with many mountainous, thrust-upon-me kind of life changes.
