Personal Style: I Don’t Care!

I’ve never blindly followed fashion trends or “rules.”

Oh sure…
100 years ago, when I was a elementary teacher, I couldn’t go too crazy,
but even then my taste was offbeat…
at least for this conservative little town.

Any more,
I don’t care

if I ruffle a few feathers with my
casual-bohemian/hint-of-flower-child style.

Honestly,
I don’t care
that I’m short
and I adore wearing long tunics.

I don’t care
that I’m over 50 and I wear slips on the outside…

and
I don’t care
if maxi-sweaters aren’t the norm for my age group.

I don’t care
if people think it’s weird to wear dresses over jeans,

and furthermore…
I don’t care
if people don’t appreciate my funky footwear.

It’s all about finding styles that you feel comfortable in, and just going for it!

The best advice I’ve ever heard about personal style is this:

Whatever you end up wearing,
be sure to “own it” and proceed with confidence…
and just a teensy hint of attitude!
