I just told a friend on Instagram that I’m no longer reading articles about “what not to wear over (age here)“. As midlife and older women, we’ve earned the right to dress as we wish, sans “rules” written by 29 year-olds. In fact, my style sense has only flourished after age 50, as I now know myself, and dress authentically.

I’ve seen “no graphic tees” on lots of those lists of rules. Ha! They’re one of my most-loved pieces, to add personality and interest to outfits. My “petit chien” sweater (sim) is one of my favorites, and my 46 year-old kid sister always wants to borrow it. A ruffled and checked skirt (sim) is another fun piece.
I added a patterned Trina Turk blazer (thrifted, sim), because it might get down to 65 degrees today (don’t hate! Remember us in Florida when our humidity is 120%). Steve Madden Troopa boots keep the look casual and offbeat.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
