How To Personalize (Boring?) Basics. I’ve stumbled onto one of the best advantages about aging and style: boring no more! Two decades ago I would have worn an upscale gray skirt like the one I’m wearing here with a solid sweater, black tights and basic pumps. Maybe added a simple pendant. Age and style confidence lets us play with closet basics and make them personal, and fun.

“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

The sleepy foxes below are a personal touch that I’ve come to love: a tee or sweater with a positive message or image. This sweater is a lightweight cotton, purchased retail at J. Crew Factory. How I wish my cats would cuddle each other like these foxes. Instead, there’s a couple of hisses/growls, and they move along with tails swishing.
The button-front skirt has great lines, and feels like a fine wool blend. I thrifted it at the Greenwich Village Goodwill. Argyle tights are a playful touch (and it’s chilly in Florida today – 68 degrees!).
