Something I
love about my new job is I do not have to look the same every day.  Some days I can wear an outfit like the one
above when I am working in house or conducting certain types of
interviews.  Other days, I need a more
professional style for business meetings or presentations. 
I always
need a hopeful, humble attitude though. 
Last Thursday, I wrote about starting over with humility.  On that same day, I was sent to a luncheon
for a business women’s organization to assist with social media during the
event. They put together an excellent panel discussion on entrepreneurship. 
During the
actual program, I bent down low and went forward to get a shot of the panel for
Instagram and Twitter.  Wouldn’t you know
it…my foot caught on a chair moving back to my seat and I wiped out in front of
everyone!! Several thought I passed out and one was calling 911 until she heard
me laughing.
There are
days I wish I was invisible…that was one of them.  Of course, a cute, young social media maven
in high heels came right after me to also take her photos, and did it with
grace and panache!  My family is still
laughing.  Just re-telling it makes me
want to throw up.  It was an I FEEL OLD
MOMENT.  But, I know it can happen to
anyone…just ask singer and 22 year old Meaghan Trainor who fell recently on the
Tonight Show during a performance.  I
guess we have more in common than I wrote about on Tuesday…bless her heart.
But,
laughing at myself was the best way to handle it.  I was wearing a fun outfit though…always go
down in style.   The one above was a
Friday look working in the office.  I
love it and feel very confident in it. 
All the pieces have been in my closet for a long time…but just recently
met each other in one look.  I think next fall I will repeat this with my faux leather leggings.

My experience is you
have to work a little harder on confidence when over 60…but I still have it and
am hopeful I am charting a new course with a smile.  
I am also stepping out of my comfort zone with a new lip color…RED!
I was given this sample of TOM FORD LIP COLOR MATTE at a Beauty Event at Saks Fifth Avenue months ago.  It sat in my makeup case for a long, long time and finally last week, I decided to try it.
Love the color, and this brand goes on like butter and stays there.
And I will now wear red more often!
