The Many faces of Confident Style
Happy Thursday, friends. Today I would like to discuss the many faces of confident style.
I will not introduce celebrities or influencers here today who wear their clothing with confidence.
But rather, this post about YOU and your confident style.
We have begun some great discussions this week about what mature women do and do not wear.
I want to keep that going and call attention to the powerful word CONFIDENCE.
THE MANY FACES OF CONFIDENT STYLE – SNOWFLAKES
If you are taking notes, then jot this down.
You are a snowflake! Created to be uniquely you…no two alike.
We are all different and approach our confident style in different ways.
I am featuring within today’s post outfits that reflect my confident style.
These are looks which I am happy to go out into the world wearing.
Confident style is empowering when we understand what makes us UNIQUELY YOU.
I am not here to encourage you to look like me or anyone else.
I am here to inspire you to develop your own unique confident style.
THE MANY FACES OF CONFIDENT STYLE: DEFINITION
There are many definitions of confidence.
I like this one…featured above.
When we step out with this type of confidence, then we are ready for new experiences every day.
We are more likely to smile, greet others, and enjoy life one day at a time.
THE MANY FACES OF CONFIDENT STYLE: BE YOU
On Tuesday, the blog had a lively discussion about wearing shorts.
Some of you like them and some of you do not.
I am attempting to warm up to wearing them…purchased one pair…we will see how that goes.
I am also attempting to warm up to wearing hats and dresses.
Clarification: I was not trying to highlight my aging body and force confidence.
I am hoping all of us can make friends with our aging bodies and accept them.
I accept that my ear is torn…but I do not highlight it.
I accept that my toes are curled, but for nice occasions they are in a shoe.
I accept that my hair is gray, but for me, I feel most confident with color.
Wearing other jewelry gives me confident style.
Covering the toes for nicer occasions…even in warm weather…gives me confident style.
Some of you said a resounding NO to shorts…and that is perfectly good, because you cannot step out in confidence wearing them.
If you are not going to wear them with confidence, then you should not leave the house with them.
The jury is still out for me…too cold to wear them now…but I will report back as the weather heats.
Again, we are all different and should accept everyone’s uniquely you style.
Tuesday’s post was an encouragement to step out of our comfort zones and try something new, but not an edict that everyone should do this.
When you are here, it is hopefully encouragement to look and feel your best….not make you angry.
YOU are the one who interprets what that means for you.
THE MANY FACES OF CONFIDENT STYLE: MY FACE
When I wear my most confident style, then the outfit is:
- Telling my world that I am polished, approachable, joyful, current and creative (These are my five personal style adjectives and I continue to stand by this system as the best way to create a uniquely you wardrobe)
- In my autumn color palette
- Fits me well…and I am currently working to improve the fit to be better
- Making me smile in the mirror and walk out the door with confident style – empowered to face what life has for me that day
I write this today to implore you to be encouragers with one another in this community. Your confident style may not be their confident style.
I love it when readers share what works for them with compassion to others, as the majority of you do.
Let us all develop confident style together and share what is working or not working together…understanding that we are all different.
What I learned in Tuesday’s conversation was that many of you like the Jockey Slip Shorts at Target. I ordered two pair since I plan to add dresses in new ways.
Here are some new arrivals in brands you might like to see…it is good to know what is current…you just might have some of these styles or colors in your wardrobe now!
Hope to see more conversation today…let’s keep it going…and thanks for being here.
