Motherhood Unstressed

Mar 3, 2024

Join me as I sit down with the legendary Lyn Slater, better known as the Accidental Icon. With over 750 thousand followers on Instagram and accolades from top brands and media outlets, Lyn's journey from social work professor to fashion influencer extraordinaire is nothing short of inspiring.

In our conversation, we delve into Lyn's new memoir, "HOW TO BE OLD: Lessons in Living Boldly from the Accidental Icon." We explore her transformative decade, where she defied expectations, battled ageism and influencer culture, and ultimately chose to walk away from it all at the peak of her career.

Part personal style memoir, part social commentary, and part creative manifesto, "HOW TO BE OLD" offers invaluable insights into reinvention and embracing change and challenges conventional standards of aging, advocating instead for inclusivity and empowerment.

Tune in to discover how Lyn Slater's rebellious journey will inspire you to redefine what's possible in your own life.
