Gracefully. Gorgeously.

"I don't want to look younger.  I want to look as great as I can at any age."

Words to live by.

I find myself drawn to images of stylish older women.  It's what I'm working to achieve for myself.  I've never been one overly tied to what I look like, paying much more attention to how I feel.  And, finally, after many years, I'm feeling stronger.  I'm walking more.  Apples taste better than ice cream.

It's not about losing weight or trying to fulfill some constructed beauty standard.  It is about feeling powerful and confident and unique.

So, when I'm buying clothes or designing jewelry or planning felt projects, I'm keeping my style goals in mind.

What are your style goals?

  1. That is such a wonderful quote! I've always wondered why, as woman grow older, they try their hardest to look younger. Growing old is a privilege and growing old gracefully is an art form :)

    I must say as I'm reading this I'm eating ice cream. But I do still LOVE apples! LOL

    My style goals are simple: wear what speaks to me and be comfortable!
