In my late forties I suddenly became fashion challenged as I struggled to dress appropriately for midlife.
Honestly! Why did I even buy that top or skirt... much less put them together!
I was close to my heaviest here so wild prints and a gathered gauze skirt were the last things I should have been wearing.
This is my Queen Mum look. All that's missing is a pillbox hat.
This is another type of "What was I thinking?"
That five bedroom house and all that landscaping was way too much for me to maintain. I am so very glad I sold it earlier this year!
When Mr. Mickey and I first started dating I was forty-nine and wanted to dress appropriately for my age and circumstance but I had no idea what that meant. I was wearing a chartreuse green wool jacket from Talbots with a brown mock neck sweater AND a ribbed white sweater vest. What was I thinking? Green is a horrible color on me! My hair color didn't complement my skin tone either.
This was a sad attempt at casual attire gone woefully wrong. I put so many hours into my company during those years, I didn't take time to think about how I dressed anymore.
At last! I found my fashion voice and now feel comfortable in my skin and the clothes I wear at fifty-eight. I learned a lot in the last decade. Thank goodness! I was on the verge of frightening small children.
Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
