Because Style Only Gets Better With Age!

people ask me to write about “APPROPRIATE” dressing for middle age ladies :/….well What does age appropriate really means??? there are not set of rules that applies to all women.if you are happy when you look in the mirror, than its your AGE-APPROPRIATE.

In today’s world when everyone from 9 to 90 wearing jeans,there are lot of people who still believe in age-related fashion ahhh…..i don’t think number define your age, your attitude,your lifestyle and your energy do. what’s appropriate for one person can be different for another.

Dressing your age means feeling comfortable in your own skin. i have seen many ladies in their 50’s who are in amazing shape and pull off any outfit.its totally up to you if you want to dress edgy, classy or mixture of both.if you like to wear tailored jackets or modern clean cuts.now a days designers are making grown-up cloths which are trendy,cool yet polished.

Yes!!! you can wear your daughter jeans but of-course everything else need to be elevated with. maybe you can wear nice fitted blazer and pair of comfy pumps and you are ready to rock! if you want to get a title of COOL MOM from your kids than learn to dress fashionably. well that doesn’t mean you should dress like your son/daughter teenage friends :p it just mean to choose great cloths that are fashion forward and great style for you body type.

FEW TIPS FOR THOSE SEEKING A STYLE BOOST!

please note that these are just general guidelines, they don’t apply on everyone.keep trendy but only pick those trends that work for you.

  • if your legs are wider at calf and ankle,avoid crop styles.
  • get yourself nice signature or designer tote.big boring bags make to look old and big.
  • if you are middle age and on heavy side. you need to dress accordingly,make yourself appear thinner by wearing solid colors.
  • make sure to wear good bra.
  • update your eye wear, weather they are prescription or just reading glasses.get the latest style according to your face cut.
  • baggy sweats and over sized pants can make you look bigger.
  • don’t always go for black dress.many women over 45 actually look better in colorful dress.
  • get youthful hair style and a nice hair color.it will make you appear fresher and youthful.
  • wear hip,trendy but comfortable shoes.

STILL GORGEOUS & STYLISH MIDDLE AGE AND BEYOND!

tradition says its good luck to wear RED the color of your love on v-day.you may go for all red outfit but if head to toe red is not your thing(like me) than one red item is enough. red dress or red top with white skirt , plan outfit with red scarf or just red lips.

12592457_10203963379684971_3952498634446895535_n
well i will always suggest a flirty white dress as opposed to something red. tiny accessories with precious touch are all you need to take this white on white look to the next level.

VALENTINE’S DATE NIGHT IDEAS!

Since my hubby and i have been together since we were teenagers (mashallah) valentines day has always represented love in its sweetest form.  Well i’m not a biggest valentine’s day advocate, a candle light dinner and movie at home with my hubby is perfectly romantic for me any time,any day.i’m married for 12 years and i have to tell you that every day (or every weekend :p) is a valentines day.i know it sounds cheesy but trust me its true. If valentines day is super important to you, ask yourself why? is it for the gifts? extra attention? or just an excuse to get dressed up and go out on date with your man?well they are all good reasons but i think all these things a couple should be doing on a regular basis and not just because of valentines day.

making your man feel special, dressing up for him,cooking his favorite food without any particular reason are things you should do for him on regular basis ( of course not everyday)when you make somebody feel loved and appreciated, most of the time they will return the love. you get what you give…..

and having small children is no excuse. you can manage if you really want to spend some alone time with your man. Remember married couples need some alone time for healthy relationship.

ROMANTIC STAY AT HOME DATE NIGHT ON V-DAY!

valentines night don’t need to be fancy or expensive. sharing some personal favorite ideas to make this night beautiful, comfy,cozy and romantic…..

1-the most important thing….. if your kids are small, put them to bed early. keep their dinner easy and favorite so there are no battles ( you know what i mean ahhhh) you need privacy and no interruptions please.

2-don’t have time to make a special dinner? take it easy and order your favorite food, dine under star’s on you balcony or by candle light in your living room.

3-do you have preteens who stay up late than you on weekends (in my case yes)than take your dinner, go to the park or beach with blanket if its cold (or just sit in the backseat of your car :p) you can make it even dinner and movie date with your laptop or portable DVD.

4-you can turn your home easily into romantic love nest through the creative use of candles/music/flowers and food

5-try to keep it lite,NO SERIOUS DISCUSSIONS!

6-smile and laugh! a bored miserable expression on your face will kill his mood.

7-make dinner together( if he like it)

8-watch his favorite movie

9-regardless of how long you have been together, sometimes things are not easy in a relationship if you are going through a rough time, try to break away things which are making you apart.

10- last but not least…DRESS TO IMPRESS, wear something your man like. A little dress ( never hurts any one 😛 ), there are many classy ways to show some skin 😉
