are you wondering what to wear to work? yes, women of a certain age are still suiting up for the office. just like jackie o who embraced her third act of life as a working woman. jackie will always be remembered as a glamorous first lady. and her controversial marriage to a greek tycoon received constant attention from the press. but at the age of 46 jackie kennedy onassis put her fame behind her and embarked upon a new career in publishing that lasted until her death at the age of 64. did jackie o need a paycheck? i don’t think so. but i do think she wanted direction in her life. that she wanted to channel her energy and creativity. and remain active. as well as it should be for any woman entering their third act of life. there are so many lessons to learn from a woman like jackie who navigated life on her own terms. from her first act as an inquiring photographer that transitioned to devoted wife and mother who acquired her unwanted claim to fame to her last act as a single woman and associate editor. this was a woman who wanted to live life fully. and she did all while looking fantastic from head to toe. what a remarkable woman!
