Over 50, mini skirt and over knee boots?

Do we have to addapt our outfits when we are over 50? I feel like wearing a mini skirt and over knee boots. Should I wear that? I am 51, and okay we all say that we should wear what we want. Sometimes I feel brave enough to do so like my different shades of red outfit. Or wearing shorts. I like it, but it is important to me that other people like it too. I am sorry, can’t help it. And I always liked mini skirts, and always wore them a lot until I think about 10 years ago. And now I feel confidant enough to just wear it again. With over the knee boots!

Does your style changes over 50?

At first I thought: yes. Because as you get older your interest changes. Also your interest in other styles. Not with all of us of course, but it can. With me I think that my style hasn’t changed that much, it’s more that I had lost my style. You see, when I was in my 40s I worked in the fashion industry and I wore the latest collections. Not perse my style, but the latest collections. Being on trend at that time was more important then wearing what I loved. And the past two years, with a lot of help through blogging, I think I found my style back. And now I am wearing more and more what I like again. And today it’s a mini skirt with over the knee boots. The off-white blouse that I am wearing is a year and a half old and I have never worn it. I will never make that mistake again because I have learned through The Bad Buy Book that I should not wear that color! It is a very nice blouse though. To hide the off-white a bit, I wear a blue cardigan. And blue tights.over 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee bootsover 50 fashion miniskirt over the knee boots

    I think blogging has helped me find my style again too. I am feeling alive in what I put on and having fun with it! Always before it was all about what other’s expected. What was appropriate and acceptable. Love your style and this outfit!

      Stupid isn t it! And we don t even feel ourselves in clothes that is appropriate of acceptable!

    Hey lady, you’ve got great legs, show’em off in a mini skirt if that’s what you feel like doing!! Dress for YOU, not your age.

    PS – those boots are AMAZING!

    I always imagined working in the fashion industry meant that I could wear whatever I loved and it would look awesome. Now I know it s more restrictive. You should never give up on your style, it’s great! But it doesn’t matter what I think, your oen opinion matters most

    • January 9, 2018 / 2:36 pm

      Yes that is true! Thank you Marloes!

      Maar een minirok staat jou volgens mij geweldig! Jij hebt veel mooiere benen als ik!

    I agree, our style interests change. For me I have always been drawn to a certain style but as my lifestyle has changed and heck, let’s be honest, my body, I find myself choosing slightly different pieces. I love mini skirts too and I absolutely would wear one with tights.
    It must have been so much fun to work in the fashion industry and wear the latest trends!
    You look great in this outfit Nancy!

    Staat je fantastisch! Heeft wat mij betreft niets met leeftijd te maken. Zelfvertrouwen en uitstraling zijn niet te koop.

    I think mini skirt with tights are fine on anyone honestly. Style is about confidence more than anything else. You’ve got great gams! Might as well show them off.


    • January 11, 2018 / 4:34 pm

      Ha ha, thank you very much!

    Gorgeous outfit. Love the mini skirt and OTK boots. You wear this outfit well. Yes I agree our styles and tastes changes and as we age, rules change too. I never really cared much for style rules or what to wear at what age. I just go with what I feel good in. Not only does it save me the headaches, it saves me a lot of money not having to spend on items that some other person who’s style is probably different from mine to tell me what I should wear! Lol Hope you are having a great day so far!
