Welcome!  Im happy to have a new blog in the works. Hope to start blogging soon about style for us over 40s. I have so much curiosity  about what looks good at my age.


  1. Dear Mary Beth,

    what a great idea to blog about fashion for Forty-Somethings! I have been browsing fashion-blogs a lot lately, but they are mainly written by teenagers or twenty-somethings. The age about forty is hard to get dressed, I think, you feel young on the inside, but shopping at "Young Fashion" doesn't work... I really like your style, casual but chic, and I love your belts, so I will keep watching for new ideas. Great work!
    Greetings from (still cold) Germany, Gabi

  2. Hi Gabi B. Thanks so much for commenting! So exciting. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement. I agree with what you say: I've been looking at so many fashion blogs and realized they are all written by young women in their twenties! Gorgeous blogs, but not so applicable to my life. And yes, I feel perfectly young on the inside yet want to be careful not to look inappropriate or like I'm trying to dress like my daughter, ya know? Thanks again for stopping by.

  3. It's so nice to see you again. And I love your idea about fashion in our 40's. I just turned 42 last week and have been giving this lots of thought. I love clothes but have found myself with a desire for a whole new style that reflects more who I am now. My daughter who is 18 has been inheriting some of my favorite old me clothes. I think you dress superbly!

  4. Oh, thank you so much, Rain. I'm 47 and have been going through a major style overhaul for the last 2 years. Finally decided to blog about it. Blogging really does help clarify my thoughts on stuff. It's fun getting the feedback and having a place to document my outfits.
