Being inVisible

Being inVisible

Being invisible has often been a complaint I’ve heard of growing older. And to be honest, I’ve already felt that way a time or two, but I think the beauty of the time in which we currently live is that we don’t have to fade away. Maybe it’s the sheer number of the baby boomers that are keeping us more in the forefront than our parent’s generation, or even our grandparents, or maybe it’s ladies with Not Yet Dead Style or  ADVANCED STYLE, who are turning the spotlight more in our direction. Whatever it is, let’s each do our part and wear what we want, how we want, as long as we want and say, We Are Here! Patti, over at Not Dead Yet Style, has a Visible Monday post each week, so this week I’m joining in. Here’s a picture of me sporting my Kuhl wool coat, my favorite, wear with everything, Frye boots and my eclectic leather bag. I am not one for traditional purses, so when I found this one, I fell in love.                     I also love this purse my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas!                 And because I love the great outdoors more than anything, I also wrote a post a few months back on my outdoor style just for fun.             If you’re a blogger, join Visible Mondays! If not, just enjoy the fun styles going on over there. Whatever your style… Keep RAging! If you like this post, share it with your...
Eyebrows raised!

Eyebrows raised!

Day 5 in the Your Turn Challenge is about practical matters. Yes, my friends, the eyebrow. I don’t know about you, but I have been seeing more and more curly little grey eyebrows sticking out from my face in the last few years and I don’t like it very much. You can only pluck so many of the little buggers before you will be brow-less so I had to find something to tame those wild hairs so they don’t stick up over my readers. This is what I found: Blinc! This stuff is amazing! Tames the brows and makes them oh so chic! Nope, I’m not an affiliate, just someone who likes the product. Give it a whirl! Keep RAging! Hey RAgers, share your favorite product in the comments below and if you like this post, share it with your friends, please! Thank...
Wheeler Peak Style

Wheeler Peak Style

I am loving reading all the blogs, blogs, blogs on style for those of us over age 50, but I don’t think anyone is covering style on the peaks, and since I hiked Wheeler Peak this fall, I thought I would be the first to offer Wheeler Peak Style! I love being outdoors and hiking is my favorite way to do it and having the right equipment makes it a lot more fun.           This is what I wore when I did my first trek to the highest point of New Mexico, 13,161 ft (4,011 meters). My REI pants, easily rolled up and buttoned should it become hot, easy to move in, and breathable; a sleeveless breathable tank; a long sleeve, light weight, breathable t-shirt; a long sleeve blouse, UPF +50 from Columbia; a long sleeve blue hoodie, breathable with a little heft for warmth and a Prana jacket, wind resistant and water repellent. I brought my rain gear just in case, as storms often blow up across these mountains in the afternoon. Lucky for us, no rain. I wore my Merrell light weight, minimalist hiking shoes, with Wright brand, no blister socks. Was I stylish? Well, maybe. But was I prepared? Yes! I carried my REI Traverse day pack with food, water, rain gear and emergency gear, like a first aid kit and a space blanket. There’s quite conveniently attached a whistle to the cross strap in the front. How cool is that? Whatever you do in the great outdoors, having the right gear makes all the difference. I work part-time at REI Santa Fe and...
