Loving Life after 50

A Labour of Fashion 2

We Fashion/Style/Outfit bloggers sure are stylish aren’t we, ever the fabulous outfit, nary a hair out of place, always looking so well put together. I mean seriously don’t we all just lounge on the stairs in perfect plaid pumps???
black and white checked tunic and red pants
or maybe we actually sit there in our slippers, sipping our morning tea debating is this a heavy boots day or do I really to start wearing heels again?? It was a tough day folks, I swear I have not worn high heels in a significant period of time ( and I did not make it all day, need to retrain these feet of mine) Seriously week two of my link up a gal has to wear awesome shoes right???

Thought I would try my Fecbec Tunic over bright red dress pants, maybe because I saw a pair of fabulous tartan pumps and remembered I had not worn mine in awhile…. cue the hmmm how can I wear these and stay warm???
threw on my moto jacket and felt  I would be warm enough for heading to the office and for taking the pictures, boy was I wrong… cue the broken record, it was cold outside.

  • I am in love with your red pants and especially the red plaid pumps. You know red is my favorite color plus I LOOVVVVEEEEEE Plaid! Well done, friend!!

  • Linda, I love your plaid heels!! You are so brave to take your photos out in the snow. I'm such a wimp when it comes to standing outside in the cold.

  • HI Linda
    I love the heels and of course the quilted jacket! It would match my quilted handbag! Love the combo you put together with red black and white, looks great. And Yes most often I am in a cozy long robe, drinking chamomile tea, with my soft slippers on, if I am home all day. Bravo for the snow pictures 🙂
