Welcome to Visible Monday #12! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the simple how-to.
A frequent fashion question for the grown-up woman is: How much skin to show? We — most of us — want to look stylish, modern and appropriate for the given setting. But, it is called Visible Monday for a reason: we don’t want to fade away to invisibility just because we are 40-something, 50-something, or any given age/size/shape.
I’ve written before that I usually cover my upper arms at work. Even though it is a casual workplace, I feel better with that body part sheltered. With this outfit, I broke my rule and let my shoulders show, for some of the day at least. I did wear a little black linen jacket when seeing clients.
I think if the rest of the outfit is modest — in this case, a high neckline, body-skimming fit and midi length skirt — it is OK to show a little shoulder now and then. I love this recently thrifted floral blouse, especially next to my cool peacock bracelet from Forever21. The black knit skirt is an old favorite and sees a lot of rotation.
