Style Perspectives: Age Is Just A Number

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Welcome to another edition of  TBB Style.    We hope you'll join us and link up your fashion posts below, and check back to see if you are featured!  

Do you believe that age is just a number?  The older I get, the more I do. Society tells us that getting old is a bad thing, and that women over a certain age have less value.  But I'm proud of my 50 years on this earth.  I want to be the best me I can be, while embracing where I've been and where I'm going.



Today for Style Perspectives we're sharing spring jackets.  My tie sleeve blazer from Nordstrom comes in four colors and has such a fun detail on the sleeves.  This time of year I'm all about the layers, and it's nice to have an alternative to a cardigan.  I wore it with my Chico's Bold Tee and a floral neckerchief from Old Navy.


Back in January, when I was setting my goals and intentions for the year, I wrote about connections.  I realize that for me, blogging is about the people I've met and the tremendous gifts they bring to my life.  I want to use my blog and social media to collaborate with women, and to pay forward the kindness and love I've received.

Since sending that thought out into the universe, the most wonderful things have happened.  The Blended Blog has continued to grow, with fun linkups and lots of new friends.  I've also become more involved with The Forever Fierce Revolution, an amazing group of inspirational women who truly believe that age is just a number.  We're coming together to shift the perception of women at midlife, and show the world that we are just beginning.  The community, started by Catherine Grace O'Connell, lifts each other up daily, and the "snowball of kindness" keeps getting bigger and bigger.  I invite you to come see what it's all about, and join us!



And now it's time to link up!  I hope you'll join us again this week, and follow along with #theblendedblogstyle.

  1. It is definitely only a number and women of all ages need to unite and lift one another up..it could truly change the dynamic of what the world has become and I love the love and devotion bloggers have to one another. You look darling, great bows on that jacket!

  2. I'm totally with you. At 56, I feel like I've earned the right to wear whatever the heck feels good and stylish.(lol) That includes a "Cat in the Hat" hat, or a Leprechaun Hat just because. (lol) Hugs...RO

  6. You're my style icon, and my 50-icon! Age is weird to me because my grandparents died at 100 so when I met them, they were "only" 70, and still had decades to live. And I remember my other grandfather turning 80 and my great uncle said, "he's so lucky to be 80. he still has life to look forward." (he was 90) So 50 is practically a teen to them!

    1. Oh my goodness, you're so sweet! I've never been anyone's style icon before :)! The people in my family live to a ripe old age - Grandpa Ed will be 100 in a few months - so I totally get the age thing. Maybe that's what keeps me feeling young!

  9. I love that tee and yes, age is just a number. Maybe it's just because I'm 50, but I feel like it looks younger than it used to. LOL. Happy weekend and thanks for linking up for Fabulous Friday! XO

  10. So proud of your good work with the Forever Fierce Revolution with Catherine and Jodie. Yay for YOU!! I ordered my tee for one decade bolder than yours but it is back-ordered with no indication when it will be shipped. Hope I where mine as well as you do yours.
