My POV About Ageless Style From My Own Diaries!

My POV About Ageless Style From My Own Diaries!
My POV About Ageless Style From My Own Diaries! Oh, honey, you may not want to miss what I have to say on Today. Because oh my golly, I think I finally got it, and it took over 48 years to catch it with understanding. When I was younger, I knew one day I would get older, but as a teenager, I thought my style was going to be the same throughout my life. Not realizing with every number change on the calendar, my life was going to change. YIKES!

Every year that I turn another age, I started realizing my punky brewster style was also. Therefore I thought I would jump onto the blog and share my point of view straight from my ageless diaries.
My POV About Ageless Style From My Own Diaries!
To be clear, dressing up and being stylish is not a must-do for every woman. So, I am for women who don't really care about dressing up; I am cool with that. But, as for me, I am sharing my point of view when it came to me not taking care of myself. I think I took better care of my personal appearance when I was younger. So, why not take care of myself now that I am aging gracefully. Besides, I see nothing wrong with a woman getting all dolled up for herself. At the end of the day, I do not know one woman who doesn't want to feel good about the way she looks. 
My POV About Ageless Style From My Own Diaries!

Here's what I have learned just recently about ageless style.
1: my style is not about graduating to a look that other people like. It's about finding what looks and feels good on me. I have discovered no matter what I wear, it's my attitude that people love. If I feel good about what I am wearing, it will translate to the people around me.

2: Forget what the fashion influencers say. Honey, what looks good on the next gal may not look right on me. It's ok to love another woman and her style, but I had to learn what's my style. What do I love about my body and what looks good on my body? In other words, what I see online may not be for me. And sometimes that was a hard pill to swallow.

3: Understanding it's ok to try out a few different styles. Because at the end of the day, nothing goes out of style. For example, I hated bell bottom pants as a kid. Now I am on the hunt for a long flare pair.
At the end of the day, style is nothing more than how I feel about dressing my body. And that makes it 100% ageless in my eyes.

In conclusion: As of right now, I will no longer worry about my style or what I am wearing. Because I am choosing to wear what makes me feel ageless and confidant. I was told by someone from my old friend's group, that a woman of a certain age should not wear off the shoulder clothing.

But, I hear to say that it is far from the truth, and I am going to prove them wrong. So, if you are a woman of a certain age, I say gone brush those shoulders off and wear what you want.

No matter how old a woman becomes, I think wearing what she wants is the epitome of having an ageless style. 

I would love to hear your point of view, please leave me some comments below?

Until Next Time See You In A Bit!

A Yellow Midi Dress That Looks A Mess On Me: Please Judge My Style!

Have you ever tried on a dress and knew it wasn't your style? Well, that didn't happen for me while trying on this yellow midi dress pictured above. Yep, I bought a short dress that may or may not look a hot mess. Trust me, I tried it on with four different handbags, shoes, and accessories, and the look still did not make any sense to me at all. I guess it's true what my momma always says. What looks good on the mannequins may not look good on you. Or will it? You be the judge. There will be 3 looks, so let me know should I keep the yellow midi dress or pass it on to donations?
