This month’s theme is: Valentine’s Day Date Outfit.


 Ageless Style Linkup Valentines Day Date {living outside the stacks}

This was a hard prompt for me because I’m so not a fancy dresser. I tend to go for bohemian outfits. You know, flowy fabrics, socks, and boots. Not fitted dresses and sexy shoes. But I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try this dress that has been hanging in my closet for about three  years. Three years and it has never been worn.

I found it at a second hand store and was immediately attracted to two three things:

  • the shape ~ fitted without being too revealing
  • the print ~ florals are so fun
  • pockets ~ all dresses should have pockets

I decided to pair my dress with red accessories just for a bit of the unexpected…

Red wedges. If you don’t  have a pair, go and get yourself a pair now. You will thank me later. Promise.

    I’m on the hunt for a cute pocketed dress. I’m driving my Mr. crazy because I want I’m also hunting down a pair of perfect ripped jeans…not too ripped but just enough to make a fashion statement. I jokingly/not jokingly whomped on him because he actually said…and I quote…”What 53 year wears ripped jeans?” I said….”THIS 53 year old does…or will….when I find the right pair?” humph lol…. I think it’s funny as all heck! I’m gonna post them too! (snort)

    • Whoa! Ripped jeans are in style. Men know nothing. LOL But I hear you on the hunt. I’ve been trying to find the perfect pair of ripped jeans too. I even ripped a pair but they didn’t have that look that I want. When you find yours, post all kinds of pictures. LOL

  • Totally on board with all dresses having pockets!!

  • I love this look on you. I know I posted on IG but these shots show more details in the dress.

  • Beautiful dress and I love the bright red wedges! I am glad you finally decided to wear this dress. The oversize floral is Fabulous. Great photos. I particularly like the one your husband suggested. I need to get outside the box more with my photos.
