Fashion blogging for over fifty year olds

Hi there.

Starting to feel very proud of my little Fashion for over fifties blog! 

I have days when I wonder why I ever thought I could do it!  But I realise I'm not competing in any way, shape or form with some of the wonderful, professional and informative blogs I see on a daily basis - I want to run along side them, giving the odd piece of 'real' hands on, true life inspirational ideas. There are so many blogs posted daily, one could read 24/7 if you so wish.

After all we are all individual with different ideas, styles and varying amounts of money to spend on and for our blogs.
I'm just wanting to share my ideas about my fashion now I'm in the 45 -60 age bracket (don't you just hate having to tick that box?) Lol! Adding a little about me and my day gives you an insight as to what kind of person I am.  It's actually so lovely to read and see other blogs from all over the world, different aged people, different cultures and amazing surroundings.  I'm amazed when I check out Instagram to see photos posted in stunning areas such as Yosemite National Park, Austrian Tirol, Los Angeles to name a few.  Equally fantastic to see 'local' photos in blogs from ladies in the UK featuring some of our incredible scenery and views.

We all have our favourite blogs, our go to blogs - to see how it's done, what they're up to and sometimes for inspiration.  There's nothing wrong with that - if I can give someone inspiration and belief that they can wear something, do something or attain a goal and vice versa, well hurrah for that!

Leading me onto fashion for the over 50's - here is today's outfit.

Do you like Chino trousers?  I do, mine from Principles have been in my trousers collection for a couple of years.  Easy to wear, easy to style, and my only criticism they do crease easily and are a nightmare to iron if you don't catch them in time!  The style I've got are a crop ankle length on me - so just about suitable for this changeable weather we're having now.  Worn here with my very much loved baseball trainers.  Make this a casual outfit for everyday wear. 
Now these baseball trainers are still all over the shops and I think everyone needs a pair in their life!  I keep suggesting my mum gets some, but she's so far not taken me up on that idea!
Mine are from Next, I been checking what they've got available now and there's plenty of choices here's some I think are a good start:  silver with toe cap here  blue sparkly here and a bit of leopard print here (the last ones are my personal pick atm)

Paired with this a standard stripy shirt, worn over a nude Cami top. Upon looking at the photos this shirt may have to be relegated to the wear-under-a-jumper pile, look at the creases!!!    I bought this from H and M earlier this year, but I may have been turned off wearing it again.  One to peruse I think. Don't you hate it when that happens?
Now you'll have to forgive me these photos.  First attempt at using the tripod and remote button!  Blimey it's so difficult,  I think a tiny bit more practise maybe needed in the photography department!








So long, until the next time. X

  3. Chino trousers are so comfy although you´re right, they crease easily! I only have 2 pairs actually although mine´s a thicker version of yours. I love wearing them with lightly knitted tops but I have to try the stripes version like what you did with yours. ;)
