LONG CARDIGAN & JOGGERS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

I love to wear joggers. Is that very a-stylish?

I bought these joggers last year and showed you it ton sur ton and with a blazer. But I havn’t worn these that much. Several years ago I bought this pinstripe joggers and wore it quite often. I think joggers are easy to style stylish. However I can see these grey/off-white ones also be styled with a simple white tee and white sneakers. And then wear it in a baggy way. I also already ordered another pair, these black joggers. Aren’t they great?

Get style ideas from other bloggers!

If you read many blogs you also get a lot of ideas by other bloggers. I find it great fun to get inspired by others. This outfit I am wearing is inspired by another blogger. I almost only wear long cardigans over dresses. It is fun to style your clothing in a different way you’re used to. So I wear the pants here with a long cardigan and a floral top and light brown pumps. A green necklace that I like better worn as a bracelet and green earrings. And a little green bag. I love it when everything matches. I know a lot of women think that is so ,,thought of” but I love it! Because today’s items are all older, I put simular links under the pictures.

WHY BLUE DRESSES NEVER GET BORED & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

How many blue dresses can a woman have!

Oh well, do I really have to answer that! And of course my collection black dresses is even bigger! Look, black dresses never really get bored……and you cannot have enough black dresses. Lol. But I tend to wear blue dresses just as often. And it’s not really my favorite color. I have very few tops and skirts in blue. But why dresses? Because when I was able to choose a dress from Shein, I fell for this one, with blue in it! Why is it that blue dresses never get bored? Well, and now you probably expected an answer and I do not have one for you! Maybe it’s just very personal. But, for example, with red and green I get bored very quickly. I am curious, have you got the same with blue? Let me know!

So yet another blue dress

I choose the one I showed you here. I had already ordered a dress of the same design, this one, and liked it very much. I love the colors in this dress, brown and blue make a great combination for Fall clothing I think. This is actually a summer dress but I find it fantastic to wear with a long cardigan or jacket and boots. To accentuate the blue, I chose my blue jacket and blue boots. Simple blue earrings and a few wooden bracelets are all the accesories this dress needs.blue dressesblue dressesblue dressesblue dressesblue dressesblue dressesblue dressesblue dresses

FASHION OVER 50: ZIGZAG PRINT ON PLEATED SKIRT & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

And how should fashion over 50 look?

And do I look that different then I was when I was 20? Yes of course! Fashion over 50 is different then over 20. Just like everything else in your life, the way you dress yourself changes over the years. I once thought(in my twenties) that cycling for fun was awfull, I thought I would be in nightclubs dancing all night for the rest of my life, I never noticed the birds singing in spring when I was in my twenties! So yes, also the way I dress has changed. I don’t wear short skirts anymore, I don’t like to wear sleeveless anymore and I don’t like my dresses to tight anymore. But that doesn’t mean I now, at the age of 50, have to dress frumpy.  I still wear what I like! And today I like to wear a somewhat stuffy outfit!

Is a pleated skirt fashion over 50?

Well not necessarily, but today I wanted  to wear something a bit frumpy. Click here for more inspiration on pleated skirts. Not that I think it’s frumpy, I think this is a fanstastic outfit! I love it! I told you before here that I would show you how the sweater would look like with this skirt. But I liked the outfit so much that I decided to dedicate a hole post to it. So now I am hoping that you don’t sigh: Oh there she is again with that pleated skirt. I also showed you my blue pleated skirt. Haha. I also had already bought a pink one so I think you see me wearing the entire summer pleated skirts. I wore big earrings with it and a small pink belt. I wanted to wear my pink mules but the pink of the mule didn’t match the pink in the sweater.

GREEN CULOTTES AND BLUE SHOES

New green culottes and fabulous blue shoes

These are my third culottes. Even though I’ve given my first away real soon afther buying. I could not get used to these. So probably it was just the fit because when I bought another one I really did not regret it. This one I wore a lot! And when I attended a fashion show, a couple of weeks back, I bought this green culotte. A really beautiful color and the fabric is so soft and a bit silky. I am sure I’ll wear this one very often too. You can find some great styling tips for your culottes here. I also bought a few weeks back these gorgeous blue shoes! Shoes that I immediately fell in love with( yeah I know that happens to me often!)

Why am I wearing a sleeveless top?

At the fashionshow I also bought this top to go with the green culottes. I had previously said that I would not wear any sleeveless tops anymore  because I have very ugly arms, I forgot about this when I bought the top. I really thought this was very strange, that I have these ugly, old looking arms, because I work out a lot. I asked my physical therapist, with whom I also work out with, and asked him for other exercises for my arms. He said my arms were muscular but that the skin was very dry.

I always use this bodymilk for under the shower. In the morning I always use a cheap body lotion and when I go to sleep I use cool cream on my arms and legs. Well, Gerben always says that the shower cot is full with a grease emulsion of the bodylotion, so I probably rinse most of it away. The morning lotion is, like I said, cheap so probably not that effective. And the cool cream is very fat but was not meant for my dry skin. (a few years ago, I suddenly got red spots on my feet and legs. My GP sent me straight to the dermatologist, whose assistent was a total bitch, she was poised because she could not reach me by telephone. We then had just moved out of our house and our telephone was disconnected, however I had that morning mailed my mobile number to the dermatologist. I pointed that to her and then she saw my number on the screen. Now she was even more pissed! The dermatologist looked at my legs and feet and without touching them, he said: you have a pulmonary disease right? Then it must come from that. What? I responded that I would like him to look further then my lung disease. He then started searching on the net, I told him that I already had done that. And then he said: well, I have to look for it in my books at home. Yeah duh! What good will that do for me? I told him that I did not get the impresion that he would help me with this and walked away. What an asshole was that!) Where was I…So I went to the drugstore and bought a few tubes of better bodylotions and it seems to be working. So I hope to have better looking arms for the the rest of the summer then you see here. But they are muscular! Lol.

ON TREND IN A GINGHAM DRESS

But what is a gingham dress?

Back from a lovely week in the UK! Back on Wifi! Haha.

Yes, I can picture a Brigitte Bardot-like dress in black and white like here, although most of them are actually in red/white! But where does gingham come from, why is it called gingham? Of course everything we want to know can be found on Wikipedia. So now we know!

I really wanted a gingham print dress in black and white for years, but because these are often off shoulder, and I don’t think that looks good on me, I have never bought one. Until I wanted to try some dresses from overseas companies. And this one has straps on the shoulders, so I do not feel so naked in it. I’m glad I tried some overseas sites. It was worth it. I now have different dresses that I am very pleased with and they fit surprisingly good.

Styling my gingham dress with green

You almost never see me with a bag, a nice trendy one that is. I always have to carry the bag for my oxygen concentrator when I go out. If I ever, ever get a transplant and don’t need the extra oxygen anymore, the first thing I will do is by myself a designer bag! Btw, I’ve almost finished the post about my disease. I think it will be ready in two weeks. Back to the bag, isn’t the color amazing? And I think that gingham matches with green perfectly. Of course black and white match with any color. So, I wear green slippers, green earrings and a green bead chain worn as a bracelet from????? Yes, Brighton! Just like these ones! It is only a pitty that there are no loops for the belt on the dress. Now I have to check all the time if the strap is still in the right place, otherwise you see the elastic above it. Perfection is a thing….
