Loving Life after 50

Two for One Link Up for A Labour of Fashion

I decided if the entire blogger world was celebrating spring I needed to embrace my inner flowers and jump on board, florals and a midi, what can I say I am easily influenced by my fellow bloggers. I have been noticing a big trend with SheInside. several of the blogs I religiously follow have been modeling great pieces and thought maybe I should check this out,.
Well bottom line is, I am hooked, gosh darn it, the prices are ridiculously low and there are way to many pieces I am in love with. So lets start with my first order which included this midi skirt. It is a perfect addition to my wardrobe, dark tights and a sweater for now and cute flats or sandals and a cami for summer, I am thinking I will get a lot of use out of this. ( only thing that would have made it better, POCKETS, yes its true I am on a mission to get pockets in all full skirts and dresses.

My Yosa necklace was the perfect addition to this outfit and I decided to really overdue the floral theme and add the necklace I got from H & C for Christmas.

Well today is a superspecial day, I agreed to Co-host the Thursday Fashion Files with Carrie and Jill, which I am really excited about, the only fly in this ointment is I usually have a link up on Thursdays so what the heck should I do……well I am going to take a walk on the wild side and hope this experiment works, today is a two for one special a chance for you to link up to two blog linkups from one location and hopefully get double the exposure.  Are you in??? Do you think we can make a two for one work successfully for all of us??? Here’s hoping and maybe if it does we can make this a monthly occurrence and really get some cross blog hops going.
So join me for my Labour of Fashion and then hop down and hit the Thursday Fashion Files

Now let’s get linking!

    Wow more power to you always Linda – love the happy prints of your skirt!


  • That's a pretty spring look! I was complaining yesterday when we had some snow (after weeks of nothing but sunshine), but you still seem to have quite a lot of it left. But spring is on its way, we just need to be patient.

  • Irene

    love the skirt! i think it can be worn in so many ways!


  • That skirt is so pretty! I love the pattern! So happy you are co-hosting with us this week!

    You crack me up so much, always. You walk on the wild side all the time my friend – I mean that in a good way. I am glad the double link up worked and see I linked a different post for each lol.

    That skirt is stunning. I own a floral, full, midi skirt already but I want a dressier one. They sell for anywhere between 45-80 bucks here, no bueno. I too have heard great things about sheinside and I registered yesterday and already added a ton of beauties to a wishlist. Your skirt is beautiful but I agree pockets would have been better. Love the floral bouquet on the neck too, you mixed 2 necklaces right?

  • lamoumous.blogspot.com

    love love love the skirt. Nice outfit:)

  • Happinessatmidlife

    A double link up! How fun! I love this skirt on you!


    Hope to see you for TBT Fashion link up.

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom

    Thank you for co-hosting with us this week! I really, really love this floral look with that gorgeous necklace and the floral print on the white skirt! But, tell that snow to go away! lol!!

  • That's a great skirt for a start to your spring wardrobe! You look great and the necklace is stunning!

  • Thanks Nora and thanks for dropping by, Yosa has the best neck pieces. I love Rachels shop

  • I am trying, wait till you see the pictures by Friday you should notice a difference in the snow ( little rain always helps)

  • I am there, of course

  • Thank you, Sheinside has the cutest skirts

  • I did mix two necklaces, really takes it up doesn't it. I find Sheinside is a pretty true to size with skirts and dresses, I want to try pants but I am a bit paranoid of sizing ( cuz I think the shape may be more junior not mature. I am going to take the leap soon though)

  • Thanks Jill, its been great. i was worried about the double link but I think it works

  • I am so anxious to try it in warmer weather.

  • we still have way to much but it is slowly going away. So anxious to ditch the heavy winter wear ( today I was able to go lighter coat YEA)

  • Thanks, Rebecca, we try and I do love the skirt
