Do you still celebrate Valentines Day? Well, we do at our house because our wedding anniversary is the day before, so I get double everything! Some years it's a bit much! Other years, it's just fun!
I think sometimes dressing in pink is the hardest thing for an older woman to do. So many items that are made in pink look fine on the hanger, but put them on an older woman and something about them makes her look ridiculous. You have to be extremely careful with ruffles and bows in pink. You can't be frilly or you end up looking like you're trying to look younger, and you don't want that. How do you look like a mature, confident woman in pink?
I've taken to shopping with my camera in my phone ready. I try things on and take a photo (selfie), from multiple angles if I can. Then I go get a latte and look over all the photos to decide what might look good and what is totally impossible. I find the camera never lies, even if my mother or my daughter might.
This outfit should work for me, since it's really not pink. At least not all over. A sleeveless pink button down and mint green tapered slacks. A floral pastel cardigan sweater to top it. Pale pink bowed kitten heels. A mint green handbag and a lovely pastel phone cover. Pink and green sunnies for fun! Pale pink earrings for bling! A sheer mint green scarf to wrap at the neck and a pink wool coat to wrap the rest of you!
