14 Nov Thirty-nine, and moving on………
If 60 is the new 40, then surely I am still in my 30s, but not for long………..
Yesterday was my birthday, and while it was a good one, I am mindful that in one year I will bid farewell to a decade I really enjoyed.
Google the phrase ‘aging gracefully’ and you’ll find advice on maintaining a good attitude, wearing appropriate makeup, taking vitamins, getting enough exercise, getting enough sleep, eating a proper diet, and everything in between. This is all great advice, but frankly my children and their friends practice this lifestyle.
I’ll continue to do all of the above, but I want to enthusiastically embrace the new 40 in 364 days!
For me, this means bringing more focus into my life which includes focusing on my wardrobe.
To celebrate 40 the second time around I intend to make 40 garments that anyone revisiting this wonderful age needs in her closet. When the big day rolls around, I would like to at least dress like I’m ready 😉
How many times have I craved a jacket to pull an outfit together? Whether it is to take jeans and leggings to the next level or add panache to a simple dress, a long jacket always brings about a little polish. I also love the pattern’s princess seams which allow for easy alterations to easily achieve a flattering fit.
I invite you to follow along with me as I sew with purpose during the next year, PIN my favorites (coming soon) reveal my mentors , inspirations and hopefully greet the future in style.
Until soon 🙂
