THE AGELESS STYLE LINKUP

Hi, welcome to the Ageless Style Linkup. The linkup runs the first Tuesday of each month and features 10 women over the age of 40 styling an outfit based on one theme, and, because we’re all so different, each theme interpretation is different. Each month, one of the co-hosts invites a guest co-host to join us for the linkup. Our goal is to show you that style is ageless…

This month’s theme is: “Styling a maxi dress or skirt” and was chosen by Jonet Wooten from Fabulously Chic Over 50. The guest co-host, also selected by Jonet, is Catherine Grace O’Connell from Catherine Grace O.

MY LOOK

I wore this outfit to work on a non-teaching day, that consisted of reference desk duty and shelving {which, to be honest, isn’t very practical in a maxi, but I’m the adventurous sort so…}. This outfit also works for strolling through the grass with the “wind” blowing…

I’ve also learned the power of the belt. Normally, I’d just wear the top untucked and hanging down because I’m not a belt wearer. But I’ve been a fan of obi belts for the longest time. I was just a little nervous about wearing one because I tend to carry my weight in my middle. But I think it actually works for me.

If I’ve learned nothing else from this post, I’ve learned that I do not wear dresses nearly enough. Oh, yeah, did I fail to mention this is a dress? A dress masquerading as a blouse and skirt.

In case you were wondering why I don’t wear it as a dress… There’s just a little bit too much exposure for me. LOL I think this picture was taken about 2 years ago…
