5 Signs You're Entering Your Señora Era

The señora era is a delicate thing - some of us rue the day we’re referred to as one instead of “mija” or “señorita” while others are embracing this change regardless of our age group.

The señora era is the time of your life where you find yourself behaving in ways our mothers or grandmothers commonly do, with fewer social activities and a lot more things happening in your casa.

If you see yourself in the 5 signs below, lean full force into your new era, señora!

A clean house brings you unrivaled peace.

Gone are the times when a drink with the girls brought you the ultimate form of blowing off steam, now your peace comes from a clean house. Nothing brings you to your ultimate state of calm like knowing your entire house is spotless.

You need your afternoon cafecito to function.

Mornings are not just for cafecito anymore—instead, the señora era makes room for a minimum of two cafecitos a day just to get you where you need to be. Bonus points if you drink it on a porch.

Your new favorite pastime is sitting in your yard doing… nothing.

Did you ever look out of the window and find the women in your family sitting outside doing absolutely nothing? Well this is your time to shine, señora. Sitting outside, lost in thought, and being void of activity is your newest fulfilling hobby.

The best entertainment for you is looking out your window.

Though many of us grew up in households being told to mind our own business, that didn’t stop mami from pulling the curtains aside and taking a peek outside. Whether it was stocking up on the neighbors’ chisme or just checking the weather, there’s so much activity out there!

You have your home clothes and your out-of-the-house clothes.

Your new at-home fit consists of a comfy robe, house dress, and “house shoes” for the day (perfect for both chores and relaxing), while your going-out clothes now consist of a floral blouse, straight or wide cut jeans with platform sandals or heels, and your makeup/hair perfectly done. Don’t forget the over-accessorizing with all the jewelry and your handbag.
