So my question is, how old is too old for trendy items like this? I am in my late thirties and still feel really young but am having trouble walking that line between looking fresh and trend-aware and looking like I'm trying too hard to recapture my youth. It's a tricky line. Especially in the stay-at-home mom sector where the uniform around here is generally yoga pants and a tee-shirt.
I found a fascinating post over at Alexis' J Crew Aficionada on this very topic here. Much to my surprise, many of the women there said they were too old to pull it off. Hmm. I think it's all about styling - and many people had wonderful styling ideas - to make it work.
So here are my Paige pants. I would only wear these with a long top that covered at least most of my generous derriere. But, I am bravely pulling up my shirt in the last picture so you can get the idea of what they look like without.
I paired it with my liberty print shirt for fun but I would most likely wear these with a long tunic or striped shirt or plain white menswear shirt.
Thoughts? Does brightness of color make the difference? Fit? Combinations?
Would love to hear the blogging communities ideas!
