This blog is supposed to be about My New Adventures. Well, I’ll tell you, things have really changed since I was in my 20’s. I’m in my late 40’s and I’ve never felt more confident. I don’t know about you, but I just seem to gain confidence as I age.
I’ve been reading on several blogs things like 5 things women over 40 shouldn’t wear or 5 cosmetics women should avoid. I realize we are getting older and I really do agree, modesty is the way to go. I have never really shown off any part of my body that shouldn’t be shown in public. I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself, my husband or my daughter.
I live in jeans and t-shirts. I realize some people expect women of my age should wear a certain type of clothing. I’m basic, jeans and tees. Guess what, I shop at the Buckle too, right along with my 16 year old daughter. I haven’t found a pair of jeans that I prefer than Rock Revival or Miss Me. I know that is a young adult store, but you will always see me there if I’m in the mall. My jeans may have holes in them, FOR SHAME. My husband, Michael, doesn’t mind. I’m not showing my private area. I’m comfy. My daughter wears the same jeans. In fact, we trade off jeans. She’s 16.
My t-shirts are very comfortable. A LOT of them are graphic tee’s. Some of them say sarcastic things. I’m totally fine with that. Most of my t-shirts are a little bigger than they need to be. I don’t like restrictive clothing. I really don’t like the new extremely short sleeve women’s t-shirt. I don’t like to show off that much of my arms.
Our Church is very laid back. Gracie, my daughter, dresses to the hilt. She LOVES to dress up. I wear my jeans (no holes) and a very nice blouse with a tank underneath. During the night services, a lot of people wear t-shirts. I don’t wear my sarcastic graphic ones. I do wear t-shirts though.
Shoes, I wear what I want. I love Sanuk, Chacos and ESPECIALLY cowboy boots. I wear my boots even in the summer. We are located in the South, boots are a staple.
Makeup is simple and easy for me. I use SeneGence products. I wear LipSense almost everyday, almost any color and and EyeSense. I’m also a distributor for LipSense, so if you are interested let me know. I don’t go all out. I’m plain and simple.
My suggestion on everything you read on the blogs, go with your gut. Do what you want and do what makes you feel GREAT.
