Before I get into today's fashion post, I just wanted to say that I'm back from an eleven day 'adventure' which I will talk more extensively about on Wednesday's travel post. I tried very hard to stay active in Blog Land while I was away, doing a few scheduled posts and responding to some emails, but it was almost impossible because I was so busy. So if you have been feeling ignored, that is why. I think next time I travel, I will just have to let everyone know and close down the blog for awhile. I just worry about letting everyone on the Internet know I'm going to be away from home, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, onto today's fashion post! Even though I was out of town, I still tried to keep up with the challenge #IWillWearWhatILike that goes on for the entire month of August. (If you still haven't heard of this exciting social media movement, see my first post HERE, I explain it all there!) I wasn't able to participate everyday because I didn't have those items with me, so I will be playing catch-up this week.
But these are the days I was able to play along:
Day 8: Non-Matching Socks
This one was hysterical. Are there really people out there who wear non-matching socks that it needed to be mentioned in a list of What Not To Wear?
Again, ridiculous, but for a different reason. Why in the world would anyone over the age of thirty not be able to wear hoop earrings or anything sleeveless? Most of the earrings in my collection are hoops, I wear them all the time and never once thought it wasn't 'age appropriate'. And as for sleeveless, if it's hot out, I'm wearing a tank top….that's it!
If you'd like to read more on the topic of social media attitudes about age appropriate dressing, see Catherine's article "Dressing Without the Fear of 'What Will Others Think...?'" from Not Dressed As Lamb. It is very insightful and worth the read.
