yesterday on the blog, we talked about ways to deal with uncertain times. i wanted to thank you all for the massive outpouring of support and love. i stand in awe of my readership’s strength and level-headedness during these times. today, we’re going to return a bit of escapism and talk about heading into spring with grace beauty and strength. i’ve got a fresh outfit today pulling in elements from timeless classics list.
our informal mission statement over here at Style at a Certain age is aging with grace, beauty, and strength. as i said in the introduction, the network of women who support this blog are strong. and although it may seem superficial at first glance, one of the ways we can express that strength is through the way in which we present ourselves to the world. i’ve got an outfit today that, to my mind at least, exudes that strength we work hard to embody.
a good leather jacket is one of the most flexible and reusable piece of outwear you can invest in. depending on where you live, they are wearable during spring, fall, and winter. although we’ve had a wet, wet winter here in Athens, GA, the weather is finally starting to turn around. we’ve had a few warm days which i’ve taken full advantage of. today, i’m pairing a leather jacket with an old a-lin skirt (similar flare hem skirt) from Talbots. all neutrals today made visually interesting with a statement blouse from J.Crew.
i’m absolutely loving these square toe pumps from Talbots. in addition to the blouse, they give this outfit just enough oomph to be visually interesting but subdued enough to compliment the neutral quality of the outfit as a whole. they’re versatile and i can imagine pairing them with anything from jeans, slacks, and skirts.
