And the experiment continues… I’m having so much fun playing with pattern mixing! There are times when I think I’m a little crazy, but I’m enjoying myself, so who cares? As I approach my 55th birthday (what???) I find I’m more adventurous than ever before – at least when it comes to my clothes. Do I wonder if I’m crossing some sort of invisible line sometimes? Absolutely. Do I care? Not really. I know my limits and have a fairly good sense of what’s appropriate for someone “my age”. I’m comfortable in my skin and understand the things I need to avoid accentuating (muffin top, anyone?). Maybe it’s some sort of mid-life crisis, but it doesn’t feel like it. I just feel free to be myself – and that’s a very good thing.
I’ve spent the last two years reinventing myself. I lost 30 pounds (I’ve gained a bit of it back, but I’m working to take it off again!), learned to slalom water-ski, grew out my hair and started writing this blog. The fashion experiment has done more for my self confidence than I ever imagined and I’m so grateful! Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for encouraging me. I’ll keep writing as long as you keep reading!

Merona dark teal sweater: Target
