Look and feel great at any age. It’s a claim I often see being made in popular women’s magazines and top beauty blogs. But, here’s the irony. I don’t see many images of women who look like me.
Granted, my 40 doesn’t look like my mom’s 40. And, my daughters’ will no doubt look even more different.
But, for mature woman like myself: professional, womanly, and motherly, I started to wonder: What does looking and feeling great at my age really mean?
I believe that feeling confident is about so much more than what I look like. It’s about being humble, finding satisfaction in my circumstance, loving unconditionally, and being mindful of the impact of my actions.
At the end of the day, it’s about living a life that makes me happy. And, doing it with a little style and grace along the way.
That’s why I created my style blog, Sister Lady Girl. I wanted it to serve as a one-stop resource where busy boss ladies can find your style by using my do-it-yourself personal style and professional image strategies.
Believe it or not, style does matter. In fact, numerous studies have shown that appearance very much shapes other people’s perceptions of not only you as a person, but your financial success, intelligence, honesty and whether or not you’re suitable enough to hire or promote. When you think about it in those terms, what others believe about you really does matter.
So, the key question becomes: what do you want people to know about you? That’s the question that Sister Lady Girl aims to help women answer.
As the fashion icon Coco Chanel once said: “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.” Here’s hoping you like what you see and will visit often to tell me what you think.
