Stylish Clothes for Women Over 60

This post contains affiliate links. By the time we reach our 60’s, we pretty much know what we like to wear. We’ve had many years to develop our style and confidence. But the other side of that is we can become so accustomed to what we typically wear, we’re in a bit of a style rut and don’t even know it. It’s so easy to just put on the same outfits day after day…it’s simple and you don’t have to think about it. I…

Why I Decided to Create a Lifestyle Blog

This post contains affiliate links Why I decided to create a lifestyle blog for women in their 60’s I’ve never been a person who religiously followed someone’s blog. It just wasn’t my thing. I’d seen some blogs that were quite impressive…so much information, lovely photos, hundreds of thousands of followers… yeah, that’s nice. So I surprised myself by making the decision to start blogging about my life as a 60 something woman. A lifestyle blog is sort of like an online diary of a person…

My Favorite Over the Counter Hair Color

What is my favorite over the counter hair color? There are so many choices and options out there, and we all have our preferences. As mature women many of us feel that our hair color can help us look younger. I know I do. I’d much rather have my medium auburn hair – out of a box –  than my natural color. It is not the classy natural silver that some mature women have. It’s a mousy brown with a lot of flat gray. Enough said. First some hair coloring history. I’ve been tweaking…

My Love Affair with Coffee

I love coffee…good, strong, full bodied coffee. I don’t want any flavors in it, nor do I sweeten it up with sugar or water it down with cream. Nope. Hot and black, preferably served in a china cup and saucer. It tastes better that way. My love affair with coffee began at an early age, around 12 or so as I recall. My parents were, and still are, coffee drinkers. My mom is Italian, a child of immigrants, and their breakfast was often a cup of coffee and slice of home made bread. So it is…

On Being a Single Woman Over 60

When I was in my 20’s I could never envision myself as an ‘older person’. My parents were old, of course, but the future was so far away and undefined. Shoot…it was enough to get through life as a young person without contemplating the distant future. But now, here I am at 62, a widow after 20 years of marriage to my best friend and soul mate, living in SW Florida and running my Home Staging business. How did I get here so quickly?   My first marriage ended after 10 years, but I…

Style is About More Than What You Wear

  I’m not a fashion follower. You won’t see the latest clothing styles in my closet. Spending hours shopping for the perfect outfit would be a painful experience for me (get in, make the purchase, get out, is how I roll). But, as a woman over 60, I have a clear sense of style about me. Style is about more than what you wear. It’s your mojo, your ju-ju, your aura…call it what you will…it’s what makes you…you! Style is about how you carry yourself…

I was born in 1955, a Baby Boomer, in Detroit, MI, and raised by wonderful Christian parents, who are still with me as I write this piece. I have been so blessed to be with such remarkable role models who helped shape my life. We were a typical midwestern family. My children, 2 amazing boys, were from my first marriage. They are both married and have blessed me with 3…
