Honey, You Are Never Too Old To Dress Up: How I Mixed And Matched My Monday Outfit!
 Ain't No Monday Blues Over Here Hunnay!
Although I am no fashionista, being in my forties has really shaken me and my style. What do I wear, how do I wear it and do I really look age appropriate in my choice of style?

Those are a few of the questions I ask myself daily since coming out of a long style rut. Sometimes, I just look in my closet and stare for a few minutes before trying on the same ole' thing over and over. Ha! I know I am not the only one. But, never fear I am here to share how I am mixing up my style with basic stuff I already have.

 So, today is Monday, and I wanted to dress like basic betty today. No, seriously, I was planning on wearing a pair of joggers and a t-shirt, yeah that basic. But then I realized that was my weekend wear and I needed to get up and fix myself up. Ugh, but it is Monday, who really cares on the first day of the week?  Yes, I really do talk to myself. I guess that comes with old age. :) That is what I heard from my elders.

 So, back to how I mixed up my Monday outfit. Since I have worn everything in my closet, I now need to find a sensible way to mix and match what I already have. So, I grabbed a dress I haven't worn in a while. Then I put on my same jacket paired with my Gianni boots, She In white handbag, and my 70s inspired earrings. Not only can I wear this look at my salon, but it is perfect for a movie date, brunch with my friends, and a meeting with my boss.

I am not a big fan of overdressing, but I am loving playing around with clothes I already have in my closet. Honestly, I know it is time to purge, but I have a lot of black items that can go with any accessories I buy in the future.

If I had one take away from today's look, it would be too stop over-analyzing the simplicity of dressing up.

I am not too old to style myself, and it is not that serious why I want to pile on the accessories.

Every woman's style will be different; that is why I am feeling confident in the way I am dressing now.

I finally realize if I love me and what I am wearing, then the people around me will also.

In conclusion: Being in a style rut is real for so many women, especially of a certain age. But, as I am getting older, it is becoming fun to play with patterns, textures by mixing and matching things up. At the end of the day, if dressing up makes a woman feel good about herself, then I say by all means "Dress Up Girl."

To many other people, it may not be serious, because it is only clothes. Who really cares anyway?

But, I would like to say, after working from 6am in the morning to 6pm at night Monday thru Friday. On my days off, I want to get up, dress up if only for a few hours of the day.
This year I've decided not to let my style go because I am a full-time mom, hairstylist, co-worker, wife, and 24-hour maid both in and out of the house.
Oh, and let's not forget I am running a side hustle. And to be fair, my life is mild compared to most of the women I know who are doing it without any help nor a spouse.

So, if a woman wants to dress up as she ages, I say go for it. Because, Honey, you are never too old to dress up.
