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

Recently, Jennifer and I began a series to address some of the aging body parts which many of us over 50 tend to think negatively about.   We began with THE MID-SECTION HERE and then discussed DRESSING THE ARMS HERE.  Today we are moving on and discussing how we love our over 50 legs!
I confess to not being the biggest fan…of dresses and skirts. I do wear them, but, those of you who read this blog often know I am usually clothed in pants.  The simple reason is…I love pants…not because I don’t like my legs!   Pants just seem to be a big part of my personal style!   However, during the summer, I wear dresses more than any other time….heat is the main reason for that.  My legs have some of the usual aging issues, but really I am very confident of how they look.  So, here are some of the fun ways I handle my over 50 legs!
1.  I care for them!  I usually  have an exfoliate in the shower, and I use lotion every day.  I also get regular pedicures…which come with some treatment to the calves as well.  Even though, some of us have less hair and lighter hair on the legs, shaving is a great way to exfoliate and keep your legs healthy and shiny.
2.  Within reason, I love fun hose, like the polka dots above.  The sheer patterns are not too overwhelming and can be a nice accessory to an outfit.  In fact, sheer colored hose are my favorites and I always have some black and blue on hand.  I especially like hose for the dressier times…such as a wedding or a banquet.
3. But, for the really warm temperatures or more casual skirts and dresses I like a nice self tanner.  I try to begin in early spring to keep my legs covered with it.  My favorites are the ones in the slide show below from Soft Surroundings.  I have used these and I love the way they work…the mitt which comes along with the first two is awesome!  I highly recommend either of them.

One of my personal wardrobe goals the last two years has been to add more dresses and skirts to my wardrobe. It is slowly happening.  I also need a new pair of walking shorts. But for now,  I must to get the self tanner going..quick!
Let me know if you are a fan of dresses and skirts…or predominately a pant fan like me!
