Recently, I wore this simple outfit to work.  A very stylish 20-something entrepreneur commented,
“I really like how you are dressed today. 
I would wear that!”  I told this
story to someone over 50 later in the week, and she said the comment would have
caused her to never wear the outfit again. 
She would assume she was dressed too young.
After the young lady made the comment, I asked why she would
wear it.  “I like classics,” she
said.  “I also love to wear neutrals and
feel loud colors are not me.”   She loved
the taupe jacket.  My response was, “Thank
you…I consider that a complement!”  The
great thing about classical style is the timeless factor….it is timeless and
works for any age of woman.  I also
consider the young lady who made the comment to be very stylish…I love how she
dresses and would really like to see more millennials follow her lead in the
workplace.  This was an outfit I consider
more business casual and I wore it on a day I was in-office editing.  When I go out to meet people, I pump it up more.
So, how would you have responded…more like the first woman,
or more like me?  Have you ever been
complemented by a much younger co-worker? 
Please share…

Thanks for stopping by!
