At 60 I’m feeling itchy to try on some new looks…mostly for the feel. Not how the fabric feels, how the look feels from the inside. Looking classic just feels different than looking sporty. It feels timeless and elegant. Sporty feels relaxed and easy. Soft and feminine feels pretty and dramatic feels powerful. This spring I’m adding some new “feelings” to my mix. How about you?
I’ve aways wanted to feel confident, but these days I’m finding confidence need not look powerful. It can also look pretty, or soft or easy or fun.
Paler colors, lower contrast, and less serious accessories feel right to me this spring. That doesn’t mean you won’t see me wearing black…it means I’m comfortable branching out. These pink pants are striking paired with black but I also adore them with a classic white shirt and pale gray sandals.
We wandered around the town next door to ours and I suddenly noticed how darn cute it was! Is it a case of the grass is always greener? We’re talking about a 15-minute drive!
These sandals have a very wide, stable block heel. The ankle straps add support which make them quite comfortable. I almost always wear red or burgundy toenail polish but am preferring a soft pink this spring. My style is definitely changing and I’m enjoying experimenting with new looks for how they feel.
We enjoyed some local artwork at this neighborhood gallery.
My round handbag is duplicated in the shape of my earrings. My pale gray sandals don’t match but coordinate with the silver snake print top on my vintage straw handbag. All shapes and colors are soft which feels feminine, even though there’s not a ruffle or skirt in view.
How do you like to feel in your clothes?
Are you experimenting with new looks at this age?
