If you are a mom over forty, you know that we are busy, I mean, really busy. Who has time to shop or worry about personal style. Well that’s where I come in. I offer inspiration and resources, so that you can find cute outfits online easier and faster…. and who doesn’t want to make life a bit easier?
All of my life people have always asked me where I shopped and the truth is that I shop everywhere, because I love it. Over the years, I’ve developed a lot of tips and tricks to making a wardrobe that I love. I know longer struggle with picking out an outfit every day. I no longer stand in front of my closet, with “nothing to wear”. Think of this, as your one-stop resource to outfit ideas, online store reviews, new store recommendations and outfit inspiration for every occasion.
What is Over Forty Style?
The rules that my mother followed, no longer exist. Being over forty is amazing! We know ourselves better and know what we like and dislike. By now, we know what looks good on us and are no longer willing to waste money on throw away items.
There is a common misconception that style must follow a certain formula. The truth is that style is deeply personal. The rule that I follow is that… if it makes you feel confident and beautiful, then you should wear it.
How to get started with building a wardrobe that you love…
In order to create a wardrobe that you love, you must first take stock of the things you already own. I try to do this at least twice a year; once in May and again in late September.
Tips for Success
Keep it simple… shop online instead of going to the mall
Think about the 3 Q’s: quality, quantity and question (ex. can I wear this item with more than one thing in my wardrobe)
Look for outfit ideas in order to reimagine the items that you already own
