Loving Life after 50

Time to Stop and Smell the Flowers and a Link Up

I know its Thursday and it is an outfit and fashion link up day but holy mackerel finally my peonies have decided they can come out and visit. I love peonies and I wish my yard was filled with them but alas I only have three bushes white, pink and fuschia (not out yet). So don’t fret outfit and link up to follow but lets just stop and smell the flowers first…
Summer is back in Ottawa, the sun is shining , the temperatures have warmed up and I am back in heels and bare legs.  The heels I am gradually getting back to but today I lasted all the way till 3:00. Its weird that a small sprain caused by heels and driveways can keep giving back weeks later.  I am still suffering twinges and some swelling, and yes I am aware staying in sneakers would help but this gal loves her shoes so I am pushing through the discomfort.  Now before I can harangued for the price of fashion and beauty, realize I do this for me, not for anyone else because I love shoes and heels.
My outfit, not the first time combining all of these pieces is a collage of some of my favourite places. A Joe Fresh Dress paired with a Blazer from Ricki’s and how perfectly do they match? Add Shoes from Go Jane and a Kate Spade Bag, again different retailers  but perfect colour match, and they all fit so wonderfully together.
