Life's Too Short To Wear Boring Clothes

I agree!

Recently, someone I know asked if she should have her nails painted in chic dark color, since she's approaching fifty -- she was actually worried she was "too old" for color. I told her to go for sparkly pink polish if it makes you happy! I wear what I want to wear, hats with cat ears, bone-embellished leggings, etc. Life is too short to stifle your style! ;)

I agree! I take more risks now than I did in my 30's. Maybe because, at my age, I don't give a tiny little thought to what anyone thinks about my wardrobe. Which, by the way, is 98% sweats...but OH that other 2%!
