oh I am all xcited! u are in Munich!!! Maybe I see you while u r here ♥ Just yesterday I saw a girl’s back and thought her outfit was very fresh and cool. as i was walking past, I saw she must have been a 40-sth. woman but it nevertheless looked so good and she also did not look like she was trying to look young but she did! it was stunning!
What a terrific fresh look for a young lady in her 40s! A true celebration that the term “youth” has little to do with the number of candles on one’s birthday cake. And nice choice on footwear. It’s nice to see that the epidemic of flip-flops that has struck New York may not have fully reached Germany.
Yay, since reading girl spy’s comments Re: ‘Sartorialiste of the year’ about women dressing too young, I’ve been in a quandary. I totally agreed with her and yet I don’t live a lifestyle where fishnets and heels are really appropriate, fabulous though they may be. Also, I like to be comfortable.
Many thanks for showing us this fine looking lady!
I love how your Milan subjects were all dressed up for their daytime outings–reminds me of my mother-in-law who would never answer the door in less than stockings, heels, a Davidow suit–but I don’t want to do it! Thanks for showing us a great casual look as well!
Its great to see a woman in comfortable shoes and not in 6 inch platforms! The jeans fit her figure beautifully, she looks so at ease. Her smooth, shiny refined haircut looks great paired with a casual yet perfectly stylish outfit!
She is absolutely perfect, the hair, the attitude, the style. You have to admit though that her body shape helps her in order to support this style. Not many women have such great bodies after a certain age and that is why they choose to dress more conservative.
I want you to know, sart, that when I dressed today, I dressed with this photo in mind. As a sexy, confident middle-aged broad, it can be so hard to find anyone else who gets what dressing in this manner really means. In the US, women are “Deperate Housewives” “Soccer Moms” “Divorced Single Moms” “terrified of aging mom” or, as an icon of style the last century said: “mutton dressed as lamb”. Women seem to dress to stereotype, as though it is a badge of honor. I find this woman refreshing and fearless, and non-stereotypical. What a relief! Middle-aged women are the sexiest! Love you, sart! xoxoxoxo, “Lady is a Tramp” PS: Of course, when I step out of the house looking great like this woman, nobody will get it, sart, but I will know and so will you. PPS: Do you know what style is where I live:
Dressed= Tee shirt, shorts and flip flops. Well dressed= the tee shirt is CLEAN.
Most of the above comments make me quite wild. What the hell is “age appropriate”? How is a non-teenage woman supposed to dress at the weekend — in a navy blue suit and sheer tights, for god’s sake? There is nothing “too young” about what this woman is wearing; she looks casual and comfortable and has the right sort of figure for the jeans. I know heaps of women over “a certain age” — my fit and fabulous 70-something mother included — who scoot around happily in t-tops, casual pants and runners. Perhaps we’re not so uptight about such things in Australia. Perhaps the stiff-necked rest of the Western world should follow our excellent example, and loosen up.
Yeah! Go grovergreen! This woman looks great and entirely appropriate for just about anything.I’m also of a “certain age” and I’m wearing jeans, “flip flops” (we call them thongs, if any one wants a cheap laugh)a graphic tee and a new jacket which until I read this I thought might be too “mad cat lady”. I think I look quite nice, but then I’m Australian.
How can such a casual look yet be so elegant and classy? Love the sneakers; I agree with the othe poster who feels flip-flops are so overdone. For that matter, so are chunky crosstrainers. Here in Seattle, the uniform seems to be black yoga pants and crosstrainers. It looked good the first 10,000 or so times, but enough already!
