Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence.
‘Tis the season! Graduations…weddings…showers…luncheons…and for me, a gender reveal for my third grand child due in September. The warmer weather brings many opportunities to wear a dress!
I have already heard from two readers with concerns about sleeveless dresses and their over 50 legs! I like a sleeveless dress with a lightweight cardigan like I am wearing here. The cardigan and dress are in the MAY JJILL COLLECTION. I really want to purchase more dresses…they are such a great way to dress my style up a little more, and still be cool in summer heat. And with all the options now out there to cover our arms, we need not worry about the sleeveless designs.
Both JJill garments are lightweight and perfect for warmer weather. This is just one option for a sleeveless dress, and the cardigan would also work well with pants and a sleeveless top. Linen is great for casual events.
LONG & LIGHT CARDIGAN
LINEN EMPIRE WAIST DRESS
For my legs, I use a self tanner lotion…of course, I just started to do this so my legs are pretty white still.
I like the TANTASIA BY JANE IREDALE It is excellent and getting a lot of media attention.
Also, JJill is featuring this FUN LINEN TOTE IN JJILL SIGNATURE LINEN as a their latest offering to raise money for the Compassion Fund. 100% of the net proceeds from their exclusive Compassion Fund tote bag will provide support to community-based organizations that help disadvantaged and homeless women become more self-sufficient. Great idea! Thank you JJill!
I used it to carry one pink baby gift and one blue baby gift to give to my daughter-in-law for the new baby as soon as the big reveal took place! It was fun to do this on Mother’s Day Weekend.
