Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger for the over Fifties - What real women wear!

Sunday - a much needed day of rest.

So you may remember some time ago I told you I was attending my best friend's son's wedding, well that was yesterday.  I managed, eventually, to find two dresses for this occasion, so I figured I could wear one dress (see below) and save the other one for a future event, then this little beauty could be ready, willing and able to furnish me with a suitable outfit, will post photo in the future.

This fuchsia pink lace dress, my favourite colour, was purchased from Jacques Vert, and what I really like that is was in the sale at quite a discounted price!  A bargain for £39, therefore making it so much easier to purchase another dress from this fabulously elegant and classic brand, to which I promptly did.

So without further ado here's my beautiful dress:

Love a bit of lace,  as soon as I put this on I knew it would be the dress I purchased, and knew even more that my hubby would love it. 
The fuchsia pink prom style dress has a lace overlay, which sits perfectly over the grey silk liner and both compliment each other beautifully.  It has a pink waist ribbon, which I chose to wear tied in a bow at the back, it could either be worn at the front, or look equally as good just tied in a knot and left hanging.
Having a v neck line both at the back and front meant wearing my pear necklace would be seen and would sit upon my neck freely without any neckline material hindering it.
The grey suede wedges were a last minute purchase from Debenhams  I wanted either a block heel or a wedge because the wedding venue was in a marquee in the gardens of a local stately home and with past experience of parties on grass I wasn't going to risk my heels sinking into the turf!  Although it has to be said there was some coconut matting on the floor inside the white marquee, but not outside where the ceremony took place.
That's one little tip I'd pass onto ladies of any age.
These wedges were soooo comfortable, I wore them all day and night, not feeling any pinching, blisters or rubbing so a great big thumbs up for them.  They have a cut out heel detail which ties at the front, and a strap across the toe base.  Very pleased with how they look.  I also think they suited the jeans I wore when I bought them - brilliant I can wear them casual as well.
Umpteen glasses of prosecco were consumed, a wonderful afternoon tea and a yummy hog roast in the evening made for a tremendous afternoon wedding - oh and not forgetting some great mummy dancing - the band were amazing and had everyone up dancing.
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, with great family, friends, food and fizz!  Made even more special because all our children attended and they all get on so well.  Can't wait to do it all again very soon.

Tutti - frutti gel nails - love, love, love this colour. makes even short nails look great.

So hope you're all enjoying the little spell of warm weather,  although don't want to alarm you, and mention the A word - but autumnal clothing is starting to seep into the shops - opps sorry quickly slapped my hand over my mouth!

Bye for today..X
