Does your age influence how you are perceived by others?
I sometimes wonder when someone looks at me if they see a stereotypical fifty-three year old woman or do they see past that?
Can they see the real me?
We are not our age we are individuals.
I refuse to be defined by my age. We are so much more than the years we have lived.
Our singular identity is formed through unique life experiences.
We are our loves, our mistakes, our choices, our joys, our sorrows and our battles.
The complexity of our lives cannot be expressed by a number.
Dressing one’s age is an antiquated idea.
I’m a grown woman. I don’t need anyone dictating how I should dress.
Personal style is our chosen packaging.
We should make it count.
My style communicates my deep concern for the environment, all but my boots and glasses were purchased secondhand.
What about you?
Does your style communicate everything you desire?
Are you influenced by society telling you to “dress your age?”
