Loving Life after 50

LBD for every Day

I took full advantage of the Labour Day Sales last weekend and today another of my finds, this little black dress was found at Target, yep TARGET.  Another steal of a deal at 10.00.
It is the perfect dress, it has pockets, it is sleeveless ( actually tank straps) and is silky enough for dress up but yet can carry off a casual vibe.

Summer has found us again in September so we are experiencing very warm temperatures so light and airy is the way to go but as usual Offices are freezing most of the time so I threw my Forever 21 blouse over top. Add a Fedora and some floral wedges and I am good to go for the commute to work. I am really preferring my glasses lately so a hat is necessary for sun glare. I love this hat, so Thank you Carnival Conquest for an awesome buy ( yep again with the 10.00)
The necklace is Mauve ( sorry for the glare) and was purchased from Charlotte Russe last year, wedges apparently are George but I found them at the Salvation Army Store, with tags still attached.
Is the back of this not just fantastic…..I love cut outs, especially when they are so strategically placed.

My hair looks more brown than red in this picture but trust me it is red, and I am still in love with it.Added a small floral earring from Forever 21 because the necklace did not seem to need any distractions

My Floral Wedges, cork heels so as comfortable as can be. 

Happy Thursday and don’t forget to check out my Thirsty Thursday Series today.

  • looks beautiful and the dress is cute

  • I'm a sucker for dresses with pockets! Such a great find! Love the cutout detail on the back!


    • Me too, put a pocket in it and I cannot walk by..

  • Thank you for joining Adrienne and me for "How I Wear My: Sandals." We each featured one of your photos in our posts. I loved your ladylike look in that eShakti skirt! Are you on Twitter? I will investigate. XO, Jill

  • That's the nicest casual LBD I've seen, and you carry it off so well. I love the shoes, too. I like black, but it doesn't like me, so I don't have much. Lately I've figured out that if I use a big scarf, I can wear a black top. You have fun with your look and it works!

    • I find a scarf or a great statement necklace helps me get away with colours that may not work the best on me.

  • I just adore the cutout on the back of that dress! Those wedges are also adorable. You really look fabulous in that dress and I love you can tell that you would agree. 🙂

    On another note, we missed you last week for style confessions link-up… I always adore seeing your favorite look of the week. Please feel free to join us again, over at http://sequinsandstyle.com/week-10-linkup/ 🙂


  • I love your floral shoes! They are perfect with that outfit. I think you need to do a post on sales. You find the best deals!

  • I love Target dresses! They have so many great styles and they're totally affordable. This is such a great outfit on you!

  • I am a 63 year old bachelor who believes your blog radiates from inside as much as from the outfits. Well done and thank you for the other items.

  • I didn't do any Labor Day Shopping. Now I'm sad, I want a little black dress like that!

  • Hello Sexy Back. Love how you styled your LBD. I need that checkered jacket and one of those Summer fedora hats.

    P.S. I agree with Ronald – your blog radiates, Linda!!

    Happy Weekend my Friend!!

  • Love the floral wedges Linda. ; )

  • Love it! Such a versatile piece!

  • Love how you styled this lovely LBD with the big silver necklace and those cute wedges. I need a pair like those wedges!
