7 Fashion Mistakes that Age You

201306-orig-mistake-1-284x4261. BACK IN BLACK – You are wearing black as a slimming color – all the time. While this may be true black tends to make us look hard and more weathered as we get older. It is fine to incorporate black into your style, but soften it. Also please I beseech you avoid harsh black liner. It is no ones friend. A nice dark brown does wonders.


2. MUFFIN BACK – Wrong bra or wrong hook. We have all seen the gal who has little fat pads sqgood.vs_.bad_.2uishing out of her bra. If you wear a sweater and see rolls where the should not be please go to the lingerie department & get fitted for a new bra.



before-after-spanx-bra13. ROLLS AND LUMPS – And speaking of extra lumps and bumps…shapewear is your friend, all the time. Don’t just pull it out for special occasions. Make sure it fits snuggly but not too tight. You should be able to breathe.

  • Added bonus – they are coming out with some sexy new pieces so you don’t have to look like your mom in a girdle.


puffy4. INCORRECT CAMOUFLAGE – You are sporting baggy clothes. – Look, I know we all have problem areas. If I was trying to hide all of mine I would basically wear a garbage bag all the time. But this does nothing good for us. Try a tailored jacket/. Don’t go shapeless go tailored. Own those curves.

5. OLD LADY KNEES –  I know our knees are no longer pretty but you can wear tights, a bit below the knee at most. Anything lower than that is just dowdy (unless it is one of those cute long summer skirts) that is a whole other story to be featured later.Avoid those below the knee, hanging out around the shin tea length skirts

jersey6. ALL THE WRONG PLACES – Jersey Fabric – I know it is super comfy but unless you are built like Heidi Klum stay away from jersey material. It has the uncanny ability to accentuate every problem area you have.



turtle neck7. GOBBLE GOBBLE – Do you have a turkey neck too? Is your skin looking similar to beef jerky when you wake up? I know the logical thing is to wear a turtle neck but try to avoid these. They really age us. Instead opt for a collared shirt of v neck.These actually draw attention away from the neck (but don’t show too much booby and cleavage)

By Just your average momma

Hi There,
My name is Kris. I am a full time working married working momma of 3 Cherubs. They are 18, 16, & 12. My to my dismay I am 48.
I am your pretty average mom. I love dark chocolate, I am tired and cranky quite often, I am about 10 lbs too heavy and I am crazy in love with my family. I am not particularly artistic or talented, although I am a pretty good cook. I am an OK wife and momma on my best days. I have strong faith, but falter daily. I am not at all feeling sorry for myself, in fact I like some me quite a bit. I tell you this because I am surrounded by this amazing group of beautiful artistic talented women, who are great mommas and wives, who have beautiful faith and you know what? They think they are just average mommas too. So I am taking my average hands on experience and throwing it out for all you other average mommas.
