Feel like I want a few new fashion ideas for 2017. Can anyone recommend some good fashion blogs for middle aged women?

I like fashion lift and also my fashionable forties although am so bored of her being in black and grey everyday so haven't looked for a while.

Bum40 is ok but she's not really my style. It's a bit overdone for me. I like how she writes though.

I like 'a life to style' - formerly School Gate Style. She has a great eye for clothes

That's not my age.

I like Midlife Chic. She went through a frumpy phase and is now back to normal, hooray. She writes interestingly and insightfully about modern life for forty-somethings, as well.

Choose one from the over40 collective

I'm transitioning from Oxfam chic (flowery dresses etc) to just chic. My younger look just doesn't suit me anymore...

I'm the opposite, I think - transitioning back to my hippy days. I'll need to be careful or I'll be back in hot pink crushed velvet.

Another vote for my fashionable 40s
I also enjoy Susiesoso's blog

BlueEyed finally blogs where they don't all wear stilettos, thank you.
