Style at Any Age – Especially 80
Todays post is dedicated to my dear Mum who just turned 80 this month.
My Mum has never worn much – if any makeup, but always made sure she was well dressed. Over the years her dress sense has changed somewhat – I still have memories of her in purple hot pants with matching heels in the 70’s (eek – hehe). As my Dad was still alive she mostly dressed in what made him happy. This included the typical belted look and pencil skirts – tell me a man that doesn’t like that! However now it’s as if she is going through a new revolution of being absolutely free to dress as she pleases!
Her favourite look being a soft shift dress with pretty print on it. She has had this terrible habit of hijacking my bags. It always makes me laugh as I have bought her so many bags over the years and yet the ones she uses mostly are always my second hand bags – it has become a running joke between us.
You can see she’s worried in this picture. Telling me I can photograph the bag but I don’t need to think I am getting it back.
Luckily she’s not interested in this bag as it’s far too small for her, but it was a little piece of fun for our photo shoot – taken up north at Taipa Bay.
Whilst many people have black as their wardrobe goto colour – my Mum has red. It’s always been a favourite colour and a large part of her wardrobe is consumed by it.
Occasionally you’ll find her in cropped pants and long blouses – my personal favourite look on her.
My Mum’s 3 Style Mantras:
- Always leave the house looking and feeling fabulous.
- Always look at the shops and what others are wearing for inspiration.
- Never ever wear ripped or crinkled clothing no matter how trendy it is.
A big thanks to my Mum for remaining young at heart and looking fabulous at any age!
We hope this post has been an inspiration to all of out there – it doesn’t matter how old or what size you are, you can always remain stylish!
