I Was Wrong
When I started this blog in 2010 I thought I could always find inspiration to write about style and fashion. Well the dearth of posts over the past year has shown I was clearly wrong.
I started to find sitting down to write about what I wore, my favourite shoes, or a new piece of clothing was feeling like work. And with a full time job and a busy family I didn't need another job.
Don't get me wrong. I still love style. One of my main objectives for this blog was to re-discover my sense of style after 40. Today I am very happy with the reinvention of my style as classic with a pop of something just a bit different. Which to be honest has always been my style - I had just lost sight of that for a while. But that done, I didn't have as much "NEW" to say about it anymore.
I also don't buy a lot of new things (part of my eco-fashion intent) and I wear a lot of repeat outfits. Repeat outfit pictures aren't that interesting, so I felt I had less to talk about.
I love writing. I miss writing. I miss sharing bits of my adventure in life after 40. I have a lot of things to talk about... not just fashion. And I think I have a unique 40+ perspective on a number of things.
So I am making a slight course adjustment in my adventure in mid life blogging. I intend to continue to share the good, the bad and the potentially embarrassing details of my life after 40. But now I will blog style, sustainable living, books, food, wine, opera, travel, televisions, failed DIY attempts.... and of course that ever present gravity.
I hope you continue to follow my mis-adventures.
