Loving Life after 50

From White Couch to Red Couch

Red Couch Tour calls for a bit of red, Converse and a striped dress from Old Navy work.

Busy Blog day today and I am scrambling to stay awake. So big update, I didn’t stay awake and instead went temporarily with a wordless post from Linda.  I am currently experiencing a weird phenomena too many events to share and not enough days or hours to write about them.

Red Couch Tour calls for a bit of red, Converse and a striped dress from Old Navy work with a classic blue blazer

Last night I was honoured to attend the media event for the launch of the Red Couch Tour.  A fantastic Canada 150 event that embraces what it is to be Canadian.  Sad part is by attending an event I then don’t get to create posts on all the other amazing things that have been going on.  I know first world issues.  Going to take a breather here, remain calm and just start writing and sharing.

Blogging

I would probably have an easier time if I didn’t share so many pictures.  Pictures make the world go round don’t you think.  I could write a thousand words in less time than it takes to edit and resize pictures but I am to visually a person to skip that part.  The pictures tell the story better than I could.

What type of blog reader are you, pictures or words? I like both but to be honest words without pictures usually has me skipping through.  That advice write to your reader, well I am my reader.  I write for me.  In the style I like to read.  I hope that appeals to others no question but I guess my target is me ( which I also hope is you).

OOTD Red Couch

Today I dressed for the Red Couch Event. ( by today I mean yesterday).  I was confident that it would not be an overly dressy affair but it seemed appropriate to wear red.  The Converse are a must because I have discovered if my feet are not comfortable at an event then I am not going to enjoy myself. The dress I found at Old Navy last year and I considered it my patriotic dress normally reserved for Memorial Day and Independence Day and a few other days too. . It’s the perfect combination of red, white and blue.  Paired with a fav blazer.  This blazer really needs to be replaced but I cannot find a good replacement.

White Couch to Red Couch

Ironically I started the day on the white wicker sofa and progressed to the Red Couch.  Do me a favour go check out the details on the tour.  It’s a fun opportunity to tell the world what Canada means to you.

    I am a woman of both a lot of words and a lot of photos when it comes to my blog posts lol. In all honesty I prefer when bloggers write up a little bit more than just what they wore and more than just sharing their affiliate links when they post.

    Such a great event for such a great blogger. You always nail stripes and nautical looks. Great dress and is made for those Red Converse’s. =)

  • I can really appreciate your thoughts about writing for yourself. My blog is if nothing else a sort of memoir. Thanks so much for linking up with Ageless Style!
