Happy in my swing dress

I actually bought this swing dress for our 25th anniversary party, but when I was at the fashion show I decided to buy that skirt for the party. I think that it’s because my body is changing(read I am right in the middle of menopause) that I wear more wider clothes this season then before. A few years ago you could draw me out in pencilskirts and bodycon dresses. But I don’t feel comfortable in that anymore. First because my belly isn’t flat anymore and second because I think shapewear is awfull. I know I will surrender…..but not yet!

A black floral swing dress

This dress is made of cotton but the body is very stretchy what makes it very comfortable to wear. Because of the cotton, the skirt remains so wide, which is actually the intention of a swing dress. I wanted a brighter pink cardigan on this dress, but as I told you here, I seem to have a lot of problems finding perfect cardigans for dresses! Pffff. But this one looks good too, a brighter one would have taken the attention of the dress a bit more, so this one is proberbly better. The bracelets, or actually necklaces, are from the boulevard in Brighton. One of my favorite places to visit whenever we are in th UK. The espadrilles I really love. It’s wearing a high heel and you don’t feel it! Fantastic. And the green combines with so many dresses and skirts. I’ve been lucky enough to find nice shoes this season. Most of the time I don’t like summer shoes that much. I buy a lot of sandals, to settle for it, and then afterwards I don’t like them at all or they hurt a lot or whatever.(fantastic for our next Bad Buy Book theme! btw, please don’t forget to send us your photo for next month. Theme is sandals!) But this season I bought these, these and the ones I show today. All shoes I am in love with!

    Pretty print on the frock Nancy and looks great with the cardigan. Boden have a good range of cropped cardigans in lots of colours, that’s where I get mine.

      Thank you Trina!

  16. July 28, 2017 / 6:41 pm

    I love the fact you added a pink cardigan with a dark floral dress! I hope I can get a colored cardigan because I only have neutral ones now1

    • July 28, 2017 / 8:17 pm

      Well I had a hard time finding a good one!

  17. July 28, 2017 / 7:39 pm

    Cute dress! It is very flattering on you. I also am not as big of a fan of body con dresses. I feel like I don’t look good in them either.


    • July 28, 2017 / 8:18 pm

      I used to love them though!

    • July 28, 2017 / 8:18 pm

      Thank you very much Edwige!

  18. July 28, 2017 / 8:02 pm

    What a fabulous dress, Nancy, it is totally gorgeous. I no longer feel comfortable in pencil skirts either, due to the same reason. As for shapewear: tried it, but it’s torture … xxx

    • July 28, 2017 / 8:19 pm

      I think so too!

  19. July 28, 2017 / 8:11 pm

    This is such a pretty dress and won’t date. I do like how you’ve styled it with the pink cardigan. Perfect

    • July 28, 2017 / 8:19 pm

      Thank you very much!

  20. July 28, 2017 / 8:38 pm

    Nancy, this dress style is very flattering on you and you look fabulous. Personal style and fashion choices will evolve over time so don’t let yourself get mired into the negative about changes in your body. Think of it as a metamorphosis and embrace a new world of fashion options.


    • July 28, 2017 / 9:13 pm

      Ha ha, that is a great way of looking at it! Thank you lovely Rena!

    • July 28, 2017 / 9:55 pm

      Thank you Karren!

  21. July 29, 2017 / 1:30 am

    I love that skirt, Nancy! It looks like a bunch of flowers rained down and are piling up at the hem. So summery, and it’s lovely on you with the pale pink cardigan!

    much love, Len

    Thank you so much for picking me as your favourite Nancy! Apologies for not stopping by earlier – not long back from holiday and having to entertain the troops now it’s the school hols…extra wine is needed until September ;-)I love the style of your dress, it looks great with the pink cardigan. I prefer A line skirts and dresses now over pencil and body con…I feel more comfortable in more forgiving styles.

      I read that you just got back and thought, I will let you know! How do you survive till September??
