Loving Life after 50

Forever 21 Floral Dress and Signature Pumps plus A Labour of Fashion Linkup

Good Lord, the sun was shining so brightly this morning I do not think my poor ole camera had time to adjust…. I think it was screaming at me, where the heck are my sunglasses it’s TOO BRIGHT……
why are you doing this to me.. 
So I sat and thought about it for a minute and went well what can a gal do at day’s end, adjusting the photos helped ever so slightly but then I decided to revel in the fact that the sun was shining and was actually this bright.  Decided to wear a bright floral dress I found at Forever 21 last year but i threw the lace cardigan overtop to protect me from the air conditioning gods at work. Paired with my yellow pumps from Shoe Dazzle and my neon necklace from Yosa ( hello yes this is on constant repeat). I wore this dress with the yellow shoes here already and I was sure I had worn it with my pink t straps but I sure could not locate a post so sadly I think I only wore this once oops)

Let’s talk about this purse for a minute, I was reading a post on Twenty York Street about Value Village and realized it had been awhile so off I went.  I found two Tommy Bahamas Shirts for Kent, A Kate Spade Bag ( seriously) and this Isaac Mizrahi bag ( for 5.99). What an awesome find. 
I am horrible at switching bags but when I do the first day is about the only day I have where the bag is actually able to be lifted, I transfer over my wallet, pill box, lipstick and phone and head out then gradually everything moves over from one bag to another and next thing I know it weighs twenty pounds.  Why do we insist on carrying everything we own on a bag ( reason number 1-99 that the smaller the bag the less you can carry so go with a wristlet)

  • What a pretty dress, beautiful colours, and looks cute with your yellow shoes. Bags… I need a big bag for work, so when I'm not working I carry a really small one. I downscale mercilessly, and love it. Now I'm on holiday and it's just a minibag, crossbody, hands-free…

  • The colors in that dress are just perfect!! They are so happy and springy 🙂

    That F21 Pastel Floral Dress is so pretty. The Bag and pumps are fun too. I also love how you changed in those colorful and adorable sneakers, after.

  • Awesome finds. I know you had to be happy the sun was out.

    What a pretty find at F21, it's tough for me to find dresses there because they are typically way too short for my comfort level. Love this bright cheery spring outfit!



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

    What a pretty floral dress, reminds me of a Lilly Pulitzer dress! And those heels go GREAT with it! Such fun pops of color!


  • Laura O in AK

    I love finds like that purse! Our Value Village sometimes prices crazy on stuff. Maybe it's an Alaska thing thinking you should pay more. And, I love that you can switch out to sneakers to walk to work.

    Lovely dress! Love toe pattern, the colors and the fit!

  • What a cute romper and those are some lovely yellow pumps. I need more colorful shoes, somehow I am drawn to nude or pink ones.

  • I love the pop of yellow. It's so gorgeous and fresh. Rachel xx

  • Seems to be the floral dress day. LOL. The bag is very unexpected and daring with the dress, but I love it!
