Lilac Dress & Fancy Friday linkup

lilac dress

Do you already have an idea what my favorite color this spring is? It’s lilac. So let’s make this lilac dress work! Because it’s a color that does not look good in my face at all. So then you have to style it in such a way that it does work of course. Well, it makes a difference that there are several dark colors in this dress, so that is good for me, dark colors are my best colors.

Let’s make this lilac dress work

This lilac dress is pre loved with the tag still attached, just like this one, I bought them at the same time. Those are the best purchases. The problem with a Zara dress is of course the sizing. Gosh, what annoying dimensions they have. With dresses it is almost always the case that I should have a 39 from Zara. Zara, make size 39 dresses!! Do you think they heard me?

So I have to wear this lilac dress when I have a flat stomach and wear shapewear. I’m saying it wrong. I never wear shapewear. If I want to wear this dress I have to wear shapewear. Isn’t that bad every now and then. Well, it actually is, because there is nothing sexy or elegant about shapewear. I once wore one that was so tight it really gave me a stomach ache. Anyway…

How to style a lilac dress when it isn’t your best color

I love lilac, it is such a gorgeous color. And I love green too, and the two work very well together! I have already have a outfit in mind with lilac and green. But first this dress. I thought I would need to wear a black jacket or cardigan over it, because lilac doesn’t do my tint any good. But when I had it on I was so surprised. I think it looks great! I loved it because this is not a dress you want to wear something over.

And how fabulous these white boots look with the dress. I am so happy with these, have worn them so often already. Only inside though, haha, as we had no where to go. And what do you think of my new white statement earrings! Zara. I am totally in love with them! And I also added a statement white ring. What do you think about my lilac dress?

    You know me and lilac! I love your dress. You made me laugh about the shapewear. Sometimes I buy something knowing I will only wear it with shapewear, but I don’t really want to so I hardly ever wear it!

      It’s awful isn’t it! And sometimes I can’t even be bothered!

    Beautiful dress, Nancy. Just spotted it over on Instagram and thought how beautiful it is 🙂 Happy Friday. Thanks so much for hosting.

    This dress is lovely on you and I agree – it needs to be worn without something over it, it is way too pretty for that! I agree about shapewear and won’t wear anything that requires it, I find it way too hot and uncomfortable!

      I actually have a very comfortable shapewear brief now, but they are so a-sexy!

    I’m surprised you say that lilac isn’t your colour because I think you look absolutely fabulous in it! The dress is divine! So annoying though, when their sizes are so screwed up. I often have the same thing buying online from Zara. Drives me nuts!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE the earrings and the boots too!

      Yes indeed! It takes forever to have the right size!

  7. 14th May 2021 / 18:22

    The dress is fabulous Nancy! I love the unique print and the boots are perfect with it. I feel you on the shape wear but sometimes I wear it to make the shape work for me. Thanks so much for the link up!

      Yes me too, but it’s never elegant or sexy!

  8. 14th May 2021 / 18:22

    I love this dress on you! And your styling is so chic! Your white boots are fabulous!

    Nancy, thanks so much for featuring my photo! What a great surprise! I, too, am loving lilac this spring. I think it looks great on you and that dress is SOOO cute! And I agree it looks amazing with green! I never wear shapewear either. I figure this is what I’ve got so I’m wearing what I like! Lol! Have a lovely weekend, my friend.

    Very pretty dress, Nancy! I love the lilac color and the lively geometric print. It’s especially nice that it’s pre-loved, too! Thanks for hosting the link up and hope you have a great weekend!

  15. 14th May 2021 / 18:22

    Nancy, I absolutely love this fabulous dress! It does look magnificent on you. And those white boots are perfection! I agree that shape wear is awful and I really don’t wear it much these days either. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    I hate shapewear ..could be my age. But I love a good pair of tights which acts as shapewear. Great purchase Nancy xx

    I’ve been seeing so much lilac lately and it looks so chic with those boots!!!

  19. 15th May 2021 / 18:22

    You are simply STUNNING Nancy! This dress is absolutely gorgeous on you!

  20. 15th May 2021 / 18:22

    You look wonderful in that dress – the white boots are so good 🙂

  21. 15th May 2021 / 18:22

    Nancy you look amanzing in this dress. I missed you post on friday 6 am? Not in my timeline.
    Enjoy your weekend and holiday.

  22. 17th May 2021 / 18:22

    I’m a firm believer in that if you LIKE a colour, you will look good in it! And here you are, proving that, Nancy! I love this pretty dress, but ugh, I hear you on the shapewear. I have a couple of pieces, but I only wear them with fancy standing-around party dresses (including one that is so tight, I can’t sit in it!).

    Love the bold white earrings and the boots look spectacular with this! What a good purchase those have been for you!

    Thanks so much for the link-party!
