CASUAL OLIVE GREEN OFF SHOULDER DRESS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Nice and easy in a casual dress

Most of the time, with clothing, the way a dress or skirt looks is more important to me then comfort. I have this especially with shoes. When I was about four years old, my grandfather and grandmother took me to a shoe store, in a nearby village, where they had a special device for kids. They could watch through the shoes at the feet of the little client. To see if the shoe fit. Because if I saw some black lacquer shoes, I would say straight away that they were good. Of course that had to be checked out! I still search for shoes by their appearance and not if they are comfortable.

But now for a change a casual dress

Because I hate wearing old joggers and a old worn tee on the couch in the evening. But that is the time I want to be comfortable too. And have the cats sitting on my lap. This dress is ideal for that. With a belt and some accesories it’s stylish. I wear wooden bracelets here and a necklace with wood. ( actually a Jord watch would fit perfectly with this outfit!)And I pulled one side of the dress up and stuck it with a small earring for a bit more fun effect. And when I want to relax in front of the tv with my cats and Gerben and a nice drink, I’ll take off the belt put my shoes off and curl up on the couch! But still fashionblogger worthy! Besides, I also played a little with the pictures. But I will not do that anymore, don’t be afraid, I like my pictures better with no filter. With wrinkles and my own teint and bumps and all that kind of badness, but that’s me!

SHORTS OVER 40….OH NO! SHORTS OVER 50!

Can I still wear shorts over 50?

Haha, yeah I can think I’m still young( in my head I’m stuck at 38) but I am over 50. No denying in that. And some garments I really don’t want to wear anymore. Short skirts and sleeveless tops for example. But what about shorts? Well, I don’t know. I have recently seen on the outfit pictures that my legs are really no longer smooth, so actually shorts are out of grace for me. But I always find them so easy to wear. And on the bike it’s so much more ideal than a skirt that always blows open, I always am pulling them down. But when I saw this one I thought: well, I can wear it at home! I had already written a post about shorts( then it was shorts over 40!) here. Only now it’s shorts over 50! Haha.

How do I wear my new shorts

I was asked to choose an item from this site and I choose this pink jacket. I am totally into pink this season. In all shades of pink! I’ve never been so colorful in my life as I am this season. So this jacket, and it fits perfect with my mules that I hadn’t shown you yet. And also had not worn yet. By the way, mules are so comfortable! ( I also bought three! pair of shoes last Sunday. I really have to stop shopping for a while!)These shorts lend themselves well to wear them a bit more elegant. And the navy with this soft shade of pink is very nice together, at least that is my opinion. I’m also fond of gold accents in clothes. A silver button, zipper or buckle doesn’t do it for me. I don’t like silver. So with these golden buttons on this shorts I felt easily in love. Some gold colored accesories finish the look. And my Brighton beads.shorts over 50fashion shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50shorts over 50

FASHIONABLE ICECREAM ON STRIPED SKIRT

We all have a striped skirt…..havn’t we?

Why do we love a striped skirt so much as soon as the temperature starts to rise? And not only skirts, sweaters, tee’s and shoes too! I don’t need to tell you where the striped look came from, but for those who want to read about it I have a link here. I think striped skirts and sweaters generate a feeling of holidays somehow. Water, sailing, sun, France. So I thought I would reinforce that feeling by wearing ice cream! Haha, not literally of course. How much fun is this sweater!

Striped pencil skirt in spring!

With such beautiful weather like today it’s so nice to go with bare leggs. Still a bit fresh but to not wear tights anymore is such a liberty! I have this striped skirt for a long time, and I also worn it a lot. I wore it like this here all the time. I think I will be wearing it again a lot because it is so easy to wear and….I bought a new striped tee that would be great on this skirt. The striped tee I bought for this skirt! I asked you what you would wear on this skirt exept for something plane black. Most of you said: stripes! Okay, then I will wear stripes! But that’s for another moment. I am wearing my turquoise necklace as a bracelet. I always buy these whenever I am in Brighton, on the boulevard. Everytime another color. Just a nice remember of my beloved Brittain. I think I will be buying a red or a pink one soon! Yeah! A dark blue ring and to add a pop of color, a pink belt. For some reason I only wear my brown fringed sandals or these espadrilles with this striped skirt.

FASHION OVER 50 WIDE SKIRT WITH PRINT

Fashion over 50 is fantastic!

And why is fashion over 50 so great? Well in my case because the older I get the more confidant I am. As a girl and a young woman I was pretty uncertain. Many people confused it with arrogance. Such a pitty. But the more confidence I get, the more I wear what I want. No, I have to say that in a different way. I always have worn what I wanted but now I feel more confidant in the clothes I wear. Such a shame that I had to wait until this age to get there!

This skirt helped me to find a new dress!

Just like these shoes I felt immediately in love with this skirt when I saw it on Instagram. The print is fantastic, the colors modest yet colorful and it has bags. I think that looks great on skirts like this one. And the lenght is just right for fashion over 50(on me that is). When I checked the site where I bought this skirt, I saw that this brand has got amazing dresses too! And I had been looking for a dress for our party. Gerben and I are 25 years together this year( we are not married) and in June we celebrate that with family and friends. And I ,,needed,, a dress for that occasion of cours. The dress will not be worn before the party, even not for you guys so you all have to wait a while! I have already told you that the store where I bought most of my clothes, and where I worked, has changed the concept. I can’t find any nice dresses or skirts there anymore. Such a shame. On the other hand, it aint a bad thing to explore other brands.

What I wear with this skirt.

I know, print mixing is it! But I do not intend to cover the fine print of this skirt with other prints. So I keep it calm with a lace top and a leather bolero. Btw, my dear blogging friend Shelbee wore this print on a beautiful blue dress last week.

PINK SKIRT, RED TOP, BLACK BLAZER & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

I finally am wearing a pink skirt.

But first I ask your attention to the following. Tomorrow is the first of April and April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Red My Lips has started an campaign to wear all month red lipstick. Read below a piece of their website.

Red My Lips is an international nonprofit organization designed to raise visibility and awareness about the realities and prevalence of sexual violence, while combating rape myths and victim-blaming. We run an annual global awareness and action campaign where our fierce and fearless supporters rock red lipstick all throughout the month of April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) to demonstrate solidarity and support for survivors and start important conversations with people in their lives.

You can find more information here on this organization.

So a pink skirt …and red lips!

Pink and red. I know it is not very original because we do see half of all the fashionbloggers in this combination. But it is so beautiful! This skirt is pretty thin so I am wearing tights underneath and hence also went with a blazer. A small pink bracelet with some thin black ones and pink earrings. A red corsage gives the outfit just a little more cachet. I think I will wear a lot of pink and red this season.

Don’t forget your picture of your worst trousers for The Bad Buy Book.

 dark brown short cardigan in tall bootsThe story behind these tall boots.

I am really very happy with these boots. I’ll tell you why. I had last year bought these boots. A nice quality suède and elastic at the top making them sank not a millimeter. But there was a big problem with these boots. I could not walk normally on them! Because of my lung disease I cannot walk on high heels anymore(it’s to exhausting) But these are not that high and the tread was wide. I don’t know what it is but I cannot walk on these. I look like a construction worker when I walk on it. They were good for only one thing: I was featured with these boots at Everything Just So! Well, I still wanted some other over the knee boots in brown suède. I came across these and there was some kind of discount week going on and I paid €30 for these. Is that a bargain or what! They have a block heel and are easy to walk on and they don’t sack either. I am very happy with these!

How I love to style my tall boots.

I never wear boots over pants. It might look good on others, it certainly doesn’t work for me at all. I think denim and brown combine great, it gives denim a more sturdy look I think. Perhaps it reminds me of cowboys……I have nothing to do with cowboys…..don’t even like westerns or country music! I digress. I wanted to wear this long cardigan with the jeans and the boots. This amazing leopard print blouse would look good on it too because of the colors, but the cardigan made the outfit look very pale. So I decided to wear a dark brown shorter cardigan over the pale one. Because the darker brown one is a bit to wide, I closed it on my back with the last button. I added some brown and gold colored bracelets in different materials and leave earrings, I also wore a leave bracelet. And a beautiful leather wrap belt. I really love this outfit and it is perfect for this cold weather because of all the layers. I hope you like my outfit too!myself in tall bootslight brown long cardigan in tall bootsblock heels in tall bootsleopard print blouse in tall bootsbrown boots in tall bootsbrown belt in tall bootsoutfit in tall bootsbracelets in tall bootsdenim skirt in tall boots
