I'm always talking about women dressing their own age— because it's true— women should dress their age.
There's nothing worse than seeing a 40-something—looking like she just stepped out of Forever 21. And while I'm not knocking Forever 21— because they really do have cute clothes— if you're in your 40's, it's not a good idea to sport the same outfit your freshman niece is wearing too.
TODAY I'M WEARING RIPPED JEANS
And not just any jeans.
I'm talking jeans you've had for such a long time, they've actually transformed to your body and no matter what you do to them—not even rips—they fit like a glove? Yes, those!
In my defense, these rips didn't quite start as big; it's been a gradual process. I do, however, admit these jeans are getting a bit out of control. If my mom had it her way, they'd be trashed.
My "ripped jean" rule-of-thumb has always been simple!
In your 20's—rip away. In your 30's—take it easy. In your 40's—slow your roll.
Today, I broke my own rule.
Now the question is, do I trash these jeans or do I trash my rule? After all— rules are made to be broken, right?
