Maybe I’m Too Old?

I’ve spent a week in New York City at our son’s bedside, while he underwent brain surgery as part one of an upcoming procedure whose purpose is to reduce his uncontrolled seizures.

FYI: I HATE Epilepsy.

It’s been a tough and exhausting week but we have our eye on the prize.  Misery for a week to improve a lifetime, is well worth it.

This week’s blog post is not about being in the hospital, but rather about what I saw on the streets outside.

To maintain my sanity, get fresh air and eat a real meal, although potato chips and M&Ms are quite yummy together, I go outside and walk up and down one block.

It’s been chilly here, but the cold air feels so much better than the, hopefully, sterile hospital air.

So I’m taking my stroll and see a few younger women walking around with ripped jeans or midriff bearing tops and jackets.

Can a woman be too old to wear ripped jeans and midriff baring tops?

I’m thinking aren’t their knees knocking from the cold?

Doesn’t their belly button have goose bumps?

So I wonder…am I too old
or
just too cold?

Please share your thoughts on the question: Can a woman be too old to wear ripped jeans and midriff baring tops??

Please be gentle with your comments below, it’s been a rough week.

    Scarlett,
    So I just celebrated my 50th Birthday last December. I wear the ripped jeans
    with the fabric or mesh panels behind the rip. The look is tasteful and fun.
    One of my favorite pair is from White House Black Market. The styles are made for women our age and compliments our sense of style.
    Best,
    Sandra R

      Happy Birthday Sandra!!
      I love that you found and wear the modified ripped jeans look…sounds perfect!
      Now get out there and rock those jeans and being 50!!!

    Such a good question. I suppose it all depends on the individual. There’s lots of men my age who can pull off looks that I simply can’t because of my body type personality and sense of humor 🙂 I think the same is true women.
