I’m in a dilemma. I HATE almost every piece of clothing I have. I also HATE to shop and HATE to try stuff on in store dressing rooms.
But the worst part is …. I don’t know what my own personal style IS.
I know what I don’t like …. tops that show off my (tractor tire) rolls, pants that I feel are floods (I’m not a fan of cropped pants – middle school/high school teasing of “floods” pour over me when trying to wear them), anything that makes me look wider than I am tall ….
Well, you get the picture.
I’m really a jeans-and-t-shirt gal, plus I like western wear (boots, jeans, snap-button shirts), AND I like wiggle dresses (think Mad Men). I’m all over the place. If I could live in jeggings and a decent top, that would be my jam. But I also must dress for a casual-Friday-type legal office.
t-shirt and skort — hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park:
My western “look” (with my sister in law, Jill) …. and a borrowed snap-front shirt of my brother’s …
Our law firm Christmas party, wearing a dress rented from Rent the Runway … that’s me on the left, btw … when I was MUCH fatter …
Me a couple of years ago with a different Rent the Runway gown … and one of the lawyers I used to work for …
My “norm” … t-shirt and jeans. These are my twin nieces Summer (left) and Hanna (right)
another “norm” look — black leggings with a (very) oversized men’s chambray shirt.
Basically, I’m not very stylish. And I don’t know how, exactly, to fix it.
I’ve been trying to watch a bunch of YouTube videos on makeup, hair, lifestyle changes for women over 50, just to get some idea of how to move forward from here. I just don’t want to end up in muumuu’s or slip-on polyester pants (shuddering) or …. well, I dunno. Old lady shit.
I’ll take any tips/help/comments. I’m CERTAIN I’m not alone in this.
