Happy Friday everyone! Last Sunday we finally had a break in the middle of this Siberian Winter. The temperature rose all the way up to 40ºF. When we went out to church it was 32ºF and it felt warm!
Today I want to write a little bit about the purpose of my blog. We women had been shown a perfect woman as a role model. That is not something new for any of us. Fashion is always selling their beautiful designs shown in perfect younger women. When we reach 40 and we realize that our body is starting to show the signs of age, we fight desperately with this reality. Instead of embracing our trophies (expression lines, curves, etc) they depress us. I am not saying to not take care of our body. I, for instance, have had a beauty routine since I was 12 (I have oily skin prone to blemishes). What I would love to see is more mature women showing us fashion and beauty products. I want us, 40ish and beyond women to see the beauty in our age. I want us to see the beauty that comes when we embrace our body and our age as it is.
Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you very much for reading!* OUTFIT * Top:: Equipment shirt, Vince jacket Bottom:: T by Alexander Wang Shoes:: Frye Bag:: Sophie Hulme
