What about a cropped about when you’re over 50?
All season I see those nice sets of skirts with a cropped top. Every time I thought again: what fun, but I’m not going to wear that anyway. I am over 50 and I do not really have a six pack anymore (although I still have it on the side of my stomach…. a bit). But …. when the Zara sale started I saw this skirt and I thought that one top would look great on it and that was this cropped top. Since they were both reduced in price, I thought, well if it really doesn’t look good at all I can always give it away. And how special, by the way, that I once find something in the sale that I like and that it also fits.
I thought if I wear this set and I pull the skirt a little higher and pull the sweater well down, you will not see so much exposed and then it is okay. Coincidentally my dear blog friend Shelbee also wrote a post about a cropped top. I think that women over a certain age increasingly wearing what they want. What a revolution! A while ago I showed you this outfit and so this season I am completely in pink and red tones. Very crazy because I never loved red but the combination of pink and red I find really beautiful. Always loved that combination. I can remember as a child I looked into the magazines of self-make fashion from my mother and that I particularly liked a red skirt and pink top together. But that was not done back then, yes that is a very long time ago, just like blue and green. You just didn’t wear it like that.
Cropped top over 50
And here we are, 40 years later wearing a red skirt and a pink top. A cropped top. I also bought a solid pink top that I would love to wear on this beautiful skirt. The skirt has beautiful pleats on the side and wears very nice. I don’t believe that I have ever bought anything so beautiful that was on sale. I don’t like the sale at all. Because if I would have liked an item, it would have hung in my closet already. And the top I had seen before, but I always thought, neh, we should not do that anymore. But I have to say that the older I am, or maybe it is because of blogging, that I increasingly wear what I like without disturbing whether something is still appropriate. I have also sometimes talked about my ugly arms, but on the other hand, I think more and more often: I am not twenty anymore, does that mean that I can’t wear nice blouses anymore? No ladies, just wear what you feel comfortable in. But there is nothing wrong with looking critically in the mirror, and do you like what you see? Then step into the world with self-confidence!
