Asos if you're Over Fifty - Yes! #chiandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my lovelies.
Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary.   It only seems like yesterday I was planning my wedding.  Five children, two grandchildren, two dogs, four houses, umpteen cars, plenty of holidays and a lifetime of happy events, all shared with my gorgeous hubby.  My oh my how the years seem to go by quickly!
Maybe he will be taking me out for a special anniversary meal, but let's just wait and see.
If he does, I've got just the dress to wear! Have you heard of ASOS?


I purchased this ASOS dress last year, happy that they proved a point back in 2017.  Being familiar with this company and assumed (wrongly) that their clothes were only for young girls, probably because my daughters' bought so much of their wardrobe from them, how wrong I was!  You don't have to be young and carefree to wear these clothes!



Spotting two dresses on the website for my trip to Abu Dhabi and was enchanted by both of them.  I neglected to get any decent shots of this pretty chiffon dress, so thought this the perfect opportunity to get some.  I can't decide if it's yellow or lime green, but whatever it is I like it!



Managing to cover the odd tan lines I seemed to have acquired.  These phots were taken pre Ibiza, the tan has now been rectified as I'm sporting a beautiful bronze glow. 😊
How pretty is this style though?  The frill compliments the hem line, which I hasten to add is the perfect length for me - chic and elegant and feels very feminine too.



Picking out the orange flower with a borrowed bag from my daughter.
These T bar sandals really are great to wear & being gold and sparkly they look super with so many of my dresses, I love wearing them as I feel like they are my dancing shoes.   I'm getting braver by the week, mixing different colours and textures of my accessories - that "matching shoes and bag" is almost a thing of the past!

Who was last week's favourite?
If you're not familiar with Samantha from Fake Fabulous, let me introduce you.
Samantha encourages everyone to have fun with their fashion & embrace individuality.  She certainly shows that in all of her fashion choices.  I love that she also starts her outfits from the feet up!  Something I often try to do!  Her latest look is without doubt a sensation, I don't know what I like more, her sandals or that fabulous denim dress.  Do stop by and see the rest of her blog.


Now let's start linking up.

  3. I do love a floaty dress! I haven't bought from the Asos site before though. That's not to say I'm scared of shopping in the younger high st shops. River island is one of my favourite brands xx

  23. You look like a ray of sunshine in this and I've heard of ASOS. It happens to be one of my favorite online places and I just bought a dress from their "Made in Kenya" line. I am going to try and support that line of clothes from them because at least they are trying to do something as far as the sustainable and Fair Trade issues.

    My best prints come from ASOS and your yellow print is no exception. So ASOS over 50? Well, my dear, it is ASOS at 68-yep just had my birthday on July 3rd so its just a matter of attitude isn't it?

    Happy Anniversary a day late! I did link up with my April Madden upcycled top from an Indian Sari.

    Take care, jacqui

  28. Hope you had a fab anniversary, congrats to you both. Yellow florals bring joy to the world, IMHO and your chiffon and frills add fresh sprinkle to the look.
    Have to fess I became just a little hooked on the reader's pics section on the ASOS site a few years ago, so inspirational, so I stay well away now!

  30. You look beautiful in this dress. It's so unique and I love the color and shape of it on you. ASOS is a fabulous place to shop, but I have trouble with their sizing a lot of the time.

  35. That's a wonderful, sunny, happy-making dress - you look very pretty in it! And do you know the linkup of my blogging friend Maren? https://farbwunder-style.blogspot.com/2018/07/colour-of-month-juli-2018-gelb.html Her "color of the month July" is yellow, so your post would fit perfectly to her linkup!
