I Don’t Wear Them, But I Don’t Want To Give Them Away

Welcome to May friends! The first Tuesday of the month is when we have our Ageless Style Link-up so that means we are kicking off the month of May with a bang. Just in case you aren’t familiar with our link up, here’s a little info.

The first Tuesday of every month ten over 40 bloggers present a different style theme and show a myriad of ways to wear it, all the while proving you can still be fashionable and on trend over 40 and beyond.

So this month I’m joining 8 other bloggers and we are sharing an item we have that we just don’t seem to wear. You know we all have things like that, right? Well let me just tell you that this was way harder for me than I even thought it would be. Here’s the thing, I figured out the items I have in my closet that for one reason or another that I don’t wear hold that place because I just don’t feel good in them. Life is too short to wear things even for a post that don’t make you feel your best. After trying on a couple of different things I didn’t want to be seen in, I finally had my light bulb moment.

So can guess just what it is in this photo that I don’t wear? If you guessed the shoes, you guessed right. They are great shoes made by a great designer. I’ve had them a good 10+ years but have worn them very little, even when I first purchased them. I really think the main reason I bought them was because my mom is a big fan of Donald J. Pliner shoes and they were such a great deal. I got them at the end of the season during one of Dillard’s huge clearance sales.




You know if you hold on to some things they come back around and as luck would have it, mules are back, baby. I pulled these out in the fall and wore them again {one time}, the day I took these pictures. I think they are really cute and they’re such nice shoes I just can’t bring myself to part with them even though I really don’t wear them. I think it’s the fit and the day I did wear them I got a blister. #aintnobodygottimeforthat


So what item(s) do you have that you can’t part with? I also have a few items I hold onto just as a gauge for my physical size? Do you do that? I’ll pull out an old piece to see how it fits. Sick, right? Even though it may be a little sick, it is an effective way to keep your size in check if you’re like me and always trying to fight the battle of the bulge.


Each month we ask a blogger to join us as a co-host and this month it’s Maria of Passion Fruit, Paws & Peonies. Maria describes her style as a cross of elegance and boho chic. I love that! Last week she did a post on positive message tees that I loved. With graphic tees being so on trend, it’s just that much better if one also has a positive message. Maybe if we all wore positive message graphic tees it would be like subliminal messages for everyone we passed. Who’s game? Pop over to Maria’s blog and say hello!
