This Wife Wouldn’t be Caught Dead Wearing Mom Jeans: The Sophisticated Style Edition

Nearly halfway through my 40th year on this planet I’ve gleaned some truths about what it means to be a woman of a CERTAIN AGE.

In other words you need to remember , hard as it is, that you are NO longer 23, and that dressing like you are 23, won’t magically reverse the aging process- it will just make you appear like a 40 year old woman trying in vain to recapture a youth that no longer is hers for the taking. But it’s not all downhill for us forty-somethings– we just need to acquire a more mature style. And that’s what brings me to today’s post- Think Sophisticated and NOT matronly. And I’ve found five looks that SCREAM just that!
