Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence
There are many who believe a woman cannot look stylish in flats. The believe women over 50 in flats look old and frumpy. I beg to disagree! Unfortunately, aging cannot be stopped…there is really no anti-aging anything. Part of that journey is dealing with challenges which pop up along the way.
For me, one of my challenges is what I call “funky feet!” From bunion surgery, to hammer toes, to callouses, I deal with all types of foot pain and have been told point blank by doctors…do not wear heels!
I have made a determined choice to not allow this to steal my joy. Rather, I am going to own it and have fun with flats…there are so many stylish choices and I believe you can look just as good in a flat as in a heel. Flats are not old…are not frumpy…and are not ugly.
I have a friend in her 60s and she wears heels almost every day, I am happy for her she can do that; however, I am not going to get depressed or not put effort into my style, because I cannot do the same. I can be confident, look great, and, yes, even own the room in my flats. This is where you start with how to look stylish in flats…with your attitude and confidence level. I wear them with everything…and it works!
If you can wear heels, that is awesome, but do not put down those of us who must wear flats at a certain age. Do not call us frumpy….we are fabulous!
How do you feel about flats?
