Happy Thursday! I hope y’all have had a great week so far. It’s nice to be on the downward slope, right? My week was nice. I got to watch But Have You Read the Book? and, y’all, I am really excited for where this will lead. I plan to write a review of the show either Friday or Saturday, so make sure you come back.


Welcome to Ageless Style! Ageless Style is a monthly link-up hosted by eight beautiful women of a certain age who want to show you that style is ageless. Originally hosted by Carrie of A Simple Lovely Life, she has regained the reigns after a bit of a hiatus. The rest of us responded to a call for cohosts and the rest is, as they say, history. Each month, one of us picks a theme and then we all create an outfit based on that theme. Keep reading to find out more about the other bloggers and to link up your style posts.


This month’s theme, “Styling Ankle Booties,” was selected by Bojana.


I remember when I saw this dress in Target, I put it in my cart and put it back about half a dozen times. I adore white dresses, but I’m one of the clumsiest people you’d ever want to meet and all I kept seeing was coffee splatters on my pretty white dress. So it hung in my closet for a whole year. Yes, I’m one of those people…

Then I started cleaning out my closet, you know, getting rid of stuff I either hadn’t worn or didn’t plan to wear again and I saw this dress. It’s so pretty and feminine, I had to keep it.

Initially, I’d planned to wear the dress with a sunflower colored cardigan, but after looking in the mirror a couple of times, I decided to go with a more substantial topper piece. This denim jacket has seen a lot of wear over the last couple of weeks. Other than a blazer, I think this is the second best way to “Boss Babe” and outfit. And this is coming from someone who has a trunk full of cardigans.



Confession: I love the look of ankle boots and dresses on people, but I always question it on myself. I think it’s because I went through this phase where all I wore were boots and dresses/skirts, so my mind hasn’t quite adjusted to that much leg showing. But seeing the look in pictures, I really do like it, so I’m happy that we this was our challenge.



I wore this outfit to work. I knew I’d be doing mostly desk work, so I figured I’d be safe from any spills or such. And the wedges are pretty comfortable, so if I did need to do any walking, there’d be no issues.
