It’s time for another edition of Ageless Style! This month our sweet style sister Bettye chose our theme, Rules Were Meant to be Broken! Although I have never met her, I have a feeling Bettye is a bit of a rebel, lol!
So here’s the thing about me: I am compliant. I follow rules. But not when it comes to fashion. I think the rule about not wearing white after Labor Day is antiquated and I refuse to let anyone tell me what is age appropriate. You know how much a side eye bothers me? Not at all. I could not care less as long as I feel comfortable and confident in what I’m wearing.
The good news is that fashion rules according to age seem to be disappearing. Don’t believe me? Do a quick google search of what not to wear over the age of 50. You’ll see. But enough of that, here’s what I decided to wear for this month’s link up: shorts. Short shorts.
These shorts are favorites of mine – I love the color and the scalloped edge. I bought them a few years ago and have enjoyed wearing them ever since. They’re perfect for hot days and even more perfect coupled with my favorite leopard wedges!
My shorts are old and my top is no longer available. I found some great options for you!
I think regardless of age some things to keep in mind when you’re getting dressed are fit, function, and feel. How’s the fit? For me, shorts can’t ride up, creep up, or show butt cheeks. Function is about where I am wearing them – not to church or any kind of formal event. And finally feel. I feel good in these shorts. I’m not self conscious about imperfections on my legs, my streaky self tanner (it’s wearing off), or my cellulite and crepey skin. That’s what matters most in my opinion.
Do you follow any fashion rules? If you do, please remember to be kind. Just because you follow a certain rule doesn’t mean everyone else needs to. What works for you may not work for someone else and vice versa, let’s keep that in mind. I hope you’ll visit the rest of the ladies to see what they’re styling today!
