Turning 50...Let me start by saying this blog is not about vanity..I have never been hung up on hiding my age...This is an inner conflict about acting your age, dressing for your age...ect ...Having to fulfill some anal self-styled obligation that society has deemed I should be. I am not or never have been able to conform to anything. I have never been a slave to what's in style, or having to have "Name Brand" items..I have always just acted and dressed as I liked. Having said that..Since I turned 50 I have had this nagging voice in the back of my head, is it time? I am 5'4" and weigh 110 and I workout. I wear everything from very Short skirts to long flowing ones I wear very short shorts to caprices...all of my pants with the exception of my leggings are very low on my hips..I wear everything from belly shirts to dressy blouses..I am not ashamed of my body and I dress to please my eyes..But...This nagging question..Is it time? I sat for a while the other day and tried to imagine me wearing more mature clothes. Most people that I meet think I am about 35 or 40..I don't act my age either..Inside I feel like I am 25 yrs old.. So my question is why I or anyone should give up who they are to succumb to a life style that is clearly not you...because it's the right thing to do for someone my age... I am afraid that if I did...I would cease to exist...I would just give up..Has anyone else gone through this?
