Loving Life after 50

Labour of Fashion Link Up and some fun Giveaways

Well today  just have a post fulled with miscellaneous stuff, but all good an outfit, a linkup and a giveaway, seriously how great is that??? So I will keep my words short and sweet so you can get to the fun stuff which is looking at my pictures right?? OK, maybe the link up and a giveaway to win 50.00 for Amazon. ( Plus I attended an event tonight and got home late and did not have a post ready Oops, the meeting was about joining the Epic Cancer Walk this Fall, so all those awesome details will be shared very soon and maybe some begs and pleas as well)
Today’s outfit is an oldie but shopping your own closet is something we should all try.  I found this dress at Banana Republic a few years ago at a steal of a price and then on the same shopping trip but another BR I found this sweater and they match perfectly.  My shoes, well Go Jane was always good to me and I ordered this style in purple and this blue ( which so perfectly picks up the blue in the dress) Finally brought the Kate Spade Beau out of storage.Just a simple classic work outfit for a hot, humid day.

  • It is a great bag isn't it, I love it. The dress also has a bit of yellow and I have been known to add yellow shoes as a contrast. ( surprise right me and yellow)

  • Omg! I loooove this outfit on you! Those colors compliment you well and that bag is to die for *swooning*. Thanks for sharing and hosting the link up as well 🙂

  • Happinessatmidlife

    The blue pops so well against the purple. Very pretty dress on you.



    Would love for you to stop by & join TBT Fashion link

  • Such a great dress. It look awesome with both the heels and the converse.


  • Catherine

    Great color combo, just love it.


  • Thanks 4 linking up to Top of the World Style. I love the color combination of light blue and lavender. I posted a similar dress on Wednesday. However, I think it looks much better with your hair color than with mine. It's probably as your hair color pulls these colors together making it more harmonic.

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom
