Should we aspire to not aging at all?


what else is there to say but "wow"

I’m at the stage of life where my own internal conversations – and definitely conversations with my girl friends – often is about aging.  One friend recently referred to her gray hair as her “wisdom” – as in, my wisdom is showing.  I love it!  What a warm, positive way to approach what is often a kind of difficult transition.  Everywhere we look we are bombarded with images of impossibly youthful looking women at middle-age and beyond.

Like the above image.  Holy cow!  She’s 65!  Gotta give her credit – she looks amazing.  And, as I understand it, she’s very well researched and educated on this topic.  HOWEVER, the “not aging at all” thing isn’t working for me and wasn’t the point of this post.

I wanted you to know about this blog – Advanced Style – and these incredible shots of lovely women who are aging gracefully, beautifully, and with style.

wouldn't you love to know her?If you subscribe to the feed similar pictures arrive regularly from all over the world.  So inspiring!  I think perhaps that these women are a more realistic approach to aging gracefully..

how sweet is she?

And while I certainly would love to look like Suzanne Somers at 65, having the grace,style and confidence of these women would be just as satisfying.  What do you think?

And, in honor of Mother’s Day, I think my Mom should be included here.  At 75, she’s chic, stylish and health conscious.  Here she is with my daughter, Robin, on a recent family holiday.
