  1. Your mom looks great! That 2nd outfit is perfect with the beret, coat, boots…I love this combo. I can’t wait to see more posts for us over 50 ladies. Thank you!

    • Definitely a combo I want to wear myself! Thanks for the feedback, Browyn! Happy you liked this post!

  2. I’m about to send this straight to my mama. She always struggles finding items that work for her because she never knows where to look. And while I might have some good input, she’s never certain until she sees it on someone built similarly to her. Your mom is quite similar, so I’m excited to share this because all the outfits are so cute!

    • I really hope your mom finds this helpful! My mom was a little apprehensive to show up on my blog with her body type, but I told her that she’s “normal” and other people want to see what clothes would look like on them too!

  3. Love the idea and the post! I am 50 this year and love fashion on a budget. I enjoy your blog and have tried to translate some of your ideas into my style. I don’t try to look 25 but want to look great for my age! am excited that you will be choosing outfits from women’s closets who are my age. Please do more posts like this!

    • Hi, Wendy! Thank you so much for the great feedback and for being a reader! How exciting that you will be 50 this year! I will be doing more in this series!

  4. Aging and fashion can be so tricky! I’m in my upper 40s yet I still want to look and feel stylish without looking like I’m pretending to be a 20-something. I love that you focused on this!! <3

  5. I’m another fan who is very pleased you are looking out for us older ladies as well. I have also worried about having a 20-something choose pieces for me. You really opened my eyes to the fact that there are so many things that anyone can wear. Thank you!

    • I’m so happy you are pleased, Megan! I’m really glad you liked this post as well and you found it helpful. There will be more! Thank you for the nice comment!

  6. Your Mother is beautiful and radiates kindness. Both outfits on your Mother are really nice, classic and realistic – please post more outfits like this and maybe some warm weather outfits as well. I love the minimalist style too!

    • Thanks so much for the feedback and kind words, Reva. I will definitely take that into consideration!

  7. Just found you and LOVING that you’ve added your mom on here. Your style is amazing and I look forward to seeing more things you put together for mom (my age) too!

    Also love the home styles – I’m a Shabby Chic fan but also like the simplistic French styles as well as Italian – especially obsessed after I took my first international trip (for my 50th) there.

    New fan!

    • Hi, Laura! So glad you found me! 🙂 It sounds like we have a lot in common! Once I’m able to see my mom again I want to keep featuring her on the blog. I hope you’ll stick around! Traveling internationally for a birthday sounds like the perfect celebration if you ask me!

  8. Loved this post and how your mom embraced your “styling” her. Please make more like this!

    • Thanks for your feedback, Stacie. I would love to! Quarantine threw a wrench in my plans 😉

  9. Thank you to both you and your mom for helping give me the confidence and ideas to step out and style it! I’ve found that the classics have served me well all the way into my 75th year.

  10. What a fun post! Thanks so much to both you and to your lovely mom for sharing. You’re both beautiful!
    I just turned 50 last year and very much enjoyed reading this. I love the idea of aging gracefully (I’m determined that I WILL do this!) and embracing where I am now, although admittedly some days, it does take more effort than others. I’ll keep working on it… and watching for your next post in the series. Thanks so much again!

    • Thank you so much for the nice comment, Tonya! I’m encouraged to hear that you are determined to age gracefully. I can tell you for sure that you’re not alone in the struggle. My mother would tell you that it definitely takes effort too!

  11. I really appreciate you showing how fashion isn’t just for skinny, young beauties but is also attainable for all of us, regardless of age and figure-type. Thanks! Your mom was a good sport to participate and you did a great job styling her. I love how you made it work with her wardrobe and personality type. Well done!!

    • I’m really glad you liked this, Wendy! I’m hoping to do more posts with my mom as well. COVID really threw that for a loop!

  12. I just found your site through Pinterest. I turn 60 next April. For years I’ve been trying to figure out my own style and what would look good on me. I’ve been living in Panamá for the last 7 years. It’s the tropics so my basic outfit was light top and shorts, light dress and some flip flops or super minimal sandals. Seriously, that’s it. It’s hot and humid all year. Sometimes too much even for jewelry. But I’m moving back to the States and am super excited to get to wear boots and jackets and coats again!

    Thanks for an inspiring and fun article. I have signed up for your newsletter :).

    And your Mom has such a great smile. It lights up her face. Love her simple style and how you both dressed her up.

    • Aw thank you so much for this sweet comment, Tracy! I would be excited as well to be able to move back to the States and try out some different fashions. Good luck with your move!

  13. I am new to this page and loved seeing this section on older women. You both look great and how true that classic styles are always relevant. I look forward to seeing more.

    • Thanks, Sam! I am so happy you will be sticking around. I have more posts like this coming!
