My closet, once stuffed to the brim with every color, cut and style of clothing you can imagine was never my happy place. Even with all those options, I would spend thirty minutes or longer trying to get dressed each day, and I never felt particularly confident or stylish. I no longer spend money on clothing or makeup or accessories that I rarely wear. I don’t shop to fill a void in my life and don’t care what is in style this month. I wear and enjoy all of my clothes and accessories for several years.
Fewer clothes but better choices allow me to get dressed each day without stress. Those items reflect the woman I am now and fit my shape as well as work with each other as a cohesive group. These jeans are from a couple of years ago, and the slate gray shirt is here. Both items are from Express. I sized up on the shirt to avoid gapping, and I had to get the jeans hemmed. The shoes are by Franco Sarto from about three years ago. The bag is by Calvin Klein via T.J.Maxx, and it is about four years old. The scarf is sold out now, but there are many others here.
The look below is a typical work-at-home, casual, comfortable look for me. If I run an errand such as going to the bank, I might change my accessories to something a bit more polished as shown in the photos above. The cashmere cardigan is several years old by J.Jill. The loafers are also several years old by Louise et Cie.
I wear less makeup than I did for most of my life and skincare is way more important to me now that I am over 60. My makeup takes about ten minutes to do. My daily routine of getting dressed and putting on makeup is easy and simple, but it gives me results that are natural and comfortable. I share my daily makeup techniques with you in the video below.
