Mrs. Stafford

Welcome to the Mrs. Stafford Community!

​​Hi there! Let me start by introducing myself. I’m Maria, AKA Mrs. Stafford.

​I’m a wife and mother living in the beautiful Green Mountain State of Vermont. My family and I moved here over 15 years ago from Philadelphia, which, believe me, was a bit of a culture shock for us.

In my first year in Vermont, I tried to adapt to my surroundings by dressing only in L.L. Bean clothing with bulky, unstylish boots and ditched most of my makeup.

​Eventually, I realized that I shouldn’t be concerned about fitting in if it compromises my sense of style and self.

I decided to be me, even if that means I stand out in a crowd. I will take any opportunity to dress my best because it makes me feel good about myself.

​Heels may not be practical in Vermont most of the year, but I will still rock my six-inch heels in the middle of a blizzard because that’s who I am.

The point of me sharing this story is that I believe women my age are at the point in life where we can find our true sense of style, and in turn, a true understanding of ourselves. It doesn’t matter what others think or expect you to look like. This is the time in life where we should just enjoy ourselves and not be concerned about what others think.

This blog is about building a community of women who can support each other and build up each other’s confidence!

On a final note, the joke was on me because Vermont women don’t all dress in L.L. Bean clothing and Birkenstocks, so beware of preconceived notions.

What is the Mrs. Stafford Blog All About?

In this blog, the main focus is aging gracefully and starting conversations women my age can relate to. There is a big gap out there concerning lifestyle blogs for mature women, which is shocking! Hopefully, we can change that here and now and start building a community of strong women who can share our life experiences, and feel like we aren’t alone in this crazy world.

“On the Mrs. Stafford Blog, we are going to say it ALL OUT LOUD!
I want to talk about menopause, health, self-care, and so much more!”

There are so many topics to cover that just really aren’t being discussed enough, at least in my opinion.

I also want to have some fun and share my knowledge on some of today’s leading beauty products and treatments. My obsession is skincare, beauty products, and makeup techniques. In today’s world, the market has so much to choose from. Since I have tried them all, I know what works and what doesn’t.

I will cover all the leading trends in beauty. Plus, share my personal fashion choices with links to get the same or similar looks to help inspire your own style. I hope you enjoy!
