Flying is one of my least favorite things, so I am using Mr. Mickey's beautiful daughter, Robin as an example for today's post.
Robin who is 51 lives in New York but was here for a funeral earlier this week. She is on her way to the airport in this photo.
Robin has a really great style of dressing all the time, but her airport style makes so much sense to me. She layers on very thin items that add no bulk but keep her warm/cool as she passes through different climates. Lightweight layers allow her to remove items as she needs to but her look remains very modern and she looks well dressed at all times. Her small carry-on bag held everything she needed for her short stay.
The long black coat from Ronen Chen has lots of details around the hem, but it did not add bulk to her look. The pieces she wears always include interesting details such as asymmetric hems or necklines so that something else underneath with different lines or a different color might be peeking out. She is very trim and in great shape so this style of dressing suits Robin very well. She always looks stylish and sporty. Never overly fussy or like she put a lot of effort into her look. I love that!
As you know I am a big fan of effortless dressing. I much prefer a look that takes four minutes to put together so that you can get on with your life. A well planned and edited wardrobe can allow just that. Robin has mastered the art of owning pieces that flatter her shape, work with many other items in her wardrobe and fit her lifestyle. That is the key to effortless dressing.
Thank you for joining Mr. Mickey's family and me on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
