September marks a monumental moment in my life, I’m turning 40! While some women stop the clock at 39, I’m leaping into my 40’s with excitement. Why not? Look how much fun my role models are having in their 40’s. From Demi to Halle, Sarah Jessica to Nicole, women are proving they can still be stylish and sexy long after the birthday candles are blown out.
Of course, with all great style icons comes a closet filled with the appropriate fashions. With this in mind, I set out to purge my closet of those “skeletons of fashions-past” and to refocus my newly claimed sexy and sophisticated look.
The first thought as I enter my walk-in closet is a feeling of liberation. I now understand that “dressing for my forties” has nothing to do with dressing for my age and everything to do with taking the knowledge I’ve gained over the past 40 years and applying it back to my wardrobe.
