My Top Five Instagrammers to Follow for Midlife Style Inspiration

In my last post, I showed five amazing women who are still rocking amazing style into their 60s and beyond. But those looks are pretty aspirational for me, what I want to look like when I finally grow up and feel free to be wild. However, if I’m looking for style inspiration I can use now, there are tons of incredible women in their 40s and 50s on Instagram showing me just what I could achieve if I would only try once in a while.

I love following these woman because while I can match my shirt to my pants, that’s about the extent of it. These women have grasped the part of style that’s always eluded me: what shoes to wear, how to add a scarf, the benefits of changing your purse more than once every five years when it finally falls apart. They inspire me to up my own fashion game.

Here’s a list of five of my favorites; there’s tons more!

I love Beth Djalali’s simple, classic beautifully accessorized outfits. It’s like she takes the clothes I have in my closet already and shows me how they could really look awesome if I just added a scarf or cool pumps. The beauty of her Instagram feed is that I get to see which scarf and which cool pumps.

If @styleatacertainage is the older sister showing me how to do the classics with flare, then my fellow Atlantan @poppysstyle is the friend encouraging me to wear the outfit I think I’m “too old for” by saying “Sure you can! After all, look at me, I can pull it off. Don’t I look amazing?” And she always does.

I really should hate Kat of doesmybumlook40 because no, her bum does not look 40. It looks 19. But I love her style, which is classic with an edge and I love her attitude, which is a mix of life-loving optimism and wine-loving realism.



I’m starting to see a trend here; apparently I’m all about classic style with a twist. Jess Jannenga’s twist is that she favors lots of bright colors and patterns which always intimidate me. I’m all about the neutrals. I enjoy reading her blog as well where she features lots of stylish midlife women.

Check out those shoes! And how her jeans are artfully rolled up, which is what my daughter is always telling me I need to do. And the trench coat, something my daughter would also love. I love everything about this outfit.


Well, I’m off to try on everything in my closet and then purchase some artful accessories. You can check out my transformation on Instagram at @katykozee. Wish me luck!
