"The wisest thing my mom's ever passed along in relation to fashion, dressing, and shopping is the notion — or urge to remember — that we're only getting older. Your 50-year-old self would chide 20-something you for skipping the chance to wear that cropped tee or cute floral miniskirt. More likely than not, your thighs are never going to be thinner, your waist smaller, or your arms quite as toned as when you're in the first few decades of your life. Bottom line: stop lamenting the most minor of flaws and start having fun with your clothes. That Summer piece you're just not quite sure about? Wear it! The future you is already applauding."
