Where Are We Now?

When I was a teenager, I never went to bed the night before school without bathing, washing my hair,  picking my clothes out, and rolling my hair on orange juice cans.

When I got married, I still put the make-up on daily, continued to bathe daily, and tried to look like the mom out of The Leave it to Beaver.

When I was younger, I tried my best within my budget to have the clothes that were closest to name brand, and up-t0-date. I would go without, until I was confident I fit in with everyone else.

When my kids were grown and out, I still continued the daily bathing, sometimes put my make-up on, at least whipped some hot rollers in my hair. Clothes had outgrown my age. I was beginning to stick with what I looked good in, and didn’t quite worry about fitting in. I was too tired, I think.

Today, I go for comfort. I really don’t care what others think. I have tremors, so comfort is my main wardrobe. I still bathe, but not every day during the cold months. About twice a week, I wear make-up. Sometimes I dry my hair and if my legs are sturdy enough, I will use the flat iron or curling iron.

Clothes have come and gone. Style is in and not. I even see clothes I wore in high school, but there is a slight twist to make them look more updated. I saw a photo that reminded me of the pants I wore in high school. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud, as I remembered how my own pants had to have the biggest bottoms as I could get. Who cared if I looked good or not in them, they were in style. I thought I would show you the photo. See if you remember them. If you do, let me know. Better yet, if you wore something like them, let me know that too.

  1. We all change as we get older. I am for comfort too and I just wear what I like, still I like to look good. I think once you are over 50 you don’t care so much about what others say about you. I am me and if they don’t like how I am, tough!


    • I rarely wear make-up anymore, and I definitely wear what is comfortable. I have heard that as we age, it is more about comfort, than impressing. I can understand why you feel the way you do. The pants remind me of the pants I wore as a teen
