Your Over 40 Style Guide

jonet wooten and family

I hope you all had a beautiful Mother’s Day, my friends. As our kids grow and fly away from our lovingly prepared nests, some years we do not have the luxury of having them with us on this day.

As I grow older (and BOLDER, I might add) I realize more every day with crystal clarity what truly matters in life. So when my sweet hubby asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day, I said, “both my children home”. Because spending time with my family is the greatest gift of my lifetime.

I had a happy and memorable Mother’s Day, although I was missing my sweet daughter who couldn’t make it in ~ work and adulting. I missed her terribly but got to FaceTime, so I was able to see her lovely face.

Our son now lives in the area and he came over and both shopped for and prepared a restaurant-quality dinner for us. To spend half a day with him and see all the love, time and effort he put into making me a special meal, was such a gift. Happy sigh….

Have you heard the news… high-waisted pants are trending, which is great news for all us fabulous midlife women.

Remember when low-rise jeans were all the rage? If you have been blessed with a muffin top, a pair of these hip-hugging jeans is a sure way to get some serious tummy droopage. Always flattering!

Not so with the slimming cut of HIGH-WAISTED PANTS, which offer classy navel coverage (wink) and helps to hide the bits that might be bulging.

Add to that, the also trending tie to the waist and we’re talking serious classic, cool style, darlings.

I’ve kept the look summer style easy-breezy with a comfy pair of black Guess Sneakers (love these so much), a simple black top, REBECCA MINKOFF BAG and FILAGREE CUFF BRACELET. Throw in a pair of tortoise shell shades which pulls the colors together and I’m ready for the day.
