Meet Me

Hey there Beautiful!!

I’m Valerie, a 60-year-old wife, mother, empty nester, and champion of women over 50 thriving in all aspects of life. Born in Texas and now residing in Dallas/Fort Worth, I split my time between a corporate HR career and pursuing my true passions through this blog and podcast.

Fashion and style have always been in my blood, thanks to a stylish mom who taught me the confidence-boosting power of fun, bold looks. While my childhood dolls have retired (I used to dress them), I still adore putting together head-to-toe outfits and sharing my styling tips with other women.

A few years ago, I launched this blog as a creative space to connect with women over 50 on the topics we care about most – fashion, beauty, health, career, self-improvement, and more. I believe that with the right mindset and support system, we can navigate life’s transitions with grace, wisdom, and timeless style.

My goal is to inspire women to embrace their inner power and flair at every age. Stereotypes that “older” means frumpy and drab simply aren’t true! Through my blog posts, I chat on everything from revamping your wardrobe to refreshing your resume.

As another way to connect with each of you, I’ve recently started  the Aging with Grace and Style podcast, which celebrates women over 50 living their best lives.  In the podcast we tackle topics like defying outdated conventions, balancing self-care with family demands, and forging new career paths. Listen in as we empower women to age confidently and authentically.

I invite you to dive into the blog, subscribe to our monthly newsletter, tune into the podcast, and join our community! Let’s connect on Instagram and Facebook so we can keep the conversation going- I’d love to hear from you!

Together, let’s continue to age with Grace, Style and a touch of Sass.
