I Salute Former First Lady Michelle Obama.

In celebration of my 4th blogiversary, I salute former first lady Michelle Obama.  Today, I serenade Mrs. O because she represented style and substance.

I know I’m not the only one who couldn’t keep their eyes off of Michelle when she exploded on the scene back in 2007.  It was when Barack Obama, then just a junior Senator from Illinois, announced his candidacy for President of the United States.

As we seasoned ladies advance in age, let’s not lead a sedentary lifestyle which can lead to obesity.  It’s a new year and an excellent time for a new you in 2017. Do you have health or wellness goals? Are you actively inspired? Then you need to discover the chic activewear at Chadwicks of Boston.

My wellness goals still include doing at least 10,000 steps daily. However, this year, I plan to incorporate more cardio activity into my exercise program explicitly. You know, with simple tasks like taking the stairs and parking farther from the store while running errands.

There Frye Shooties Are Made For Walkin'
It’s been a moment since I’ve reminisced about childhood fashions.  Let’s go down Memory Lane. Some of you may remember Nancy Sinatra’s song, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin?,”  that debuted in 1966.  At that time, go-go boots were the thing to have.  Fast-forward to this post: I’m talking shoe fashion. Specifically, these Frye shooties that are made for walkin’ in Paris.

Who mandated wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion faux pas? When I started to research the history of wearing white, I found little in writing regarding this no-no of sporting the color after the first Monday in September.

Fashion History, Wearing White

Perhaps it was a petty distinction initiated with the snobby upper class looking to establish their golden rules of fashion.
