Do you wear dresses? I remember my Granny wearing dresses all the time. She always wore a housedress when she was home, then changed to something nicer when she went out to run her errands. I never saw my Granny in pants. My Mom wore dresses when I was little but the older she got the more she relied on pants. I seldom wore dresses when I was a young woman but the older I get, the more dresses I wear. I appreciate their comfort and how easy it is to look polished with just one garment.
Welcome to Hit Your Style Sweet Spot. Pam Lutrell and I began this series to help inspire women who are struggling with their appearance. Each week we choose a scenario to show how we dress to reach our style sweet spot. Your style sweet spot is when you feel confident about your appearance and know you’re sending the message you want people to see. Last week we shared how we dressed for a new stage of life. This week we’re dressing… in dresses.
Dresses are all over the stores but I see so few women wearing them. I admit that pants seem more comfortable, but there’s something about a dress that is so simple and easy. You don’t need to coordinate a top with bottom and they usually bypass that trouble spot, our waistline.
During the winter I like to wear black tights or fishnets with them. In the summer I don’t like to wear any hose. Having flourescent white legs is a bit of a problem that I solve with a little self tanner.
I have spider veins and a few varicose veins so self tanner helps camouflage them. The skin on my legs has also become crepey…like on the rest of my body. Having a touch of color on them helps.
I’d like to say the days of orangey self tanners are over…but they’re not. I’ve tested many but always come back to this one. I like this
Jergen’s Natural Glow in Fair to Medium. I use it on my legs every other day to keep a little color going all Spring and Summer. On the alternate days I use my regular moisturizer.
A few tips for using. If you have dry skin, use a scrub first. Concentrate most of it on your shins and thin it out toward your knees and ankles.
Now lets pop over to see how Pam at Over 50 Feeling 40 wears a dress.
Have a fabulous week!
