The first half of life is for learning. The second half of life is for living.

The New Mid is a frank, funny look at women in mid-life and their day-to day-struggles and successes, as well as the big stuff - questions about meaning, fulfillment and happiness. It’s a place where women in their 40’s and up are breaking societal boundaries and expectations, while still dealing with real life issues such as caring for aging parents or restarting their careers.  You’ll get real talk with nothing held back about the topics you care about, with experts weighing in on health, sex, finances, relationships and everything in between.

Do you look in your closet and feel like you have nothing to wear? In today's episode I speak with Get Your Pretty On Founder Alison Lumbatis on how to find your own fashion style in midlife.  What fashion trends are too young or too old for us? What's the best why to shop both in stores and online plus how wearing clothing has a lot more to do with how we feel inside than just what we're wearing on the outside!

Show notes: 

  • Alison is a firm believer that it doesn't have to be age appropriate but rather "you" appropriate.
  • When you're thinking about your wardrobe there are three questions you should ask yourself: 1- Does this make me feel more stylish and confident when I put it on? 2- Does this fit or flatter my body? 3- Take a selfie in the mirror. 
  • Tipis on how to find your fashion.
  • We only use 20% of the clothes in our closet so 80% of our clothes we don't wear! 
  • Clean out your closet in order to figure out what pieces of clothing you need to get.
  • Go shopping with a list so you don't buy items that you really don't need. 
  • Alison explains what stores are goo to shop at to get the different pieces for your wardrobe.
  • Fall/Winter staples and a comfy pair of joggers and leggings are included!
  • Box Styling services allow someone else to pick your clothes. They can be really helpful for us midlife women.
  • What to wear on a Zoom job interview.
  • Believes in capsule wardrobes
  • What are good pieces of jewelry and other accessories to have in your wardrobe.
  • Denim trends are basically anything goes...even bell bottoms!
  • Alison also talks about how if she could talk to her younger self she’d let her know that life is a tapestry of her purpose and what she’s doing today. She couldn’t rush or sidestep or done things differently or she would be different than she is now. In midlife we have the ability to see the value of perspective.
