caftan…

Did I mention that I think caftans are one of my favourite fashion staples?  Yes, I said staple. I truly believe that a beautiful caftan is something every woman should have in her closet.  It never really goes out of style and there are so many variations that it can be worn by any woman at any age. This one above is available at shoplatitude.com as is this one and this oneI also love this one by LEMLEM and this one at ASOS.

flats…

It’s no secret that I love to wear heels. At 5 feet 1 inch ‘tall’ they make me feel like I have legs. But let’s face it there are times when heels just aren’t practical. This season is the season of the flat. Whether it’s a trend or longer term fashion must-have remains to be seen.Of course, lats will always be in style if you choose to wear them. It’s a no brainer. Wear what you are comfortable in and you will always get it right.

to bare or not to bare…

I have to admit that at the first hint of warmer weather I want nothing more than to shed the layers I’ve been cocooning under all winter. But, well my legs may need some TLC before that happens. Not to mention that I don’t feel as confident in short styles as I used to. It  isn’t that I feel women over a certain age should stay away from total leg bearing it’s just that I for one would rather not. Unless I’m on the beach of course!

Afterall…if I can achieve the same thing in a pencil skirt why not go for it in a way that suits me much better.

floral dress…

Although I love the soft flowing floral dresses this spring, this seems to be channeling Elaine from Seinfeld to me. I do love the motto jacket over the soft floral dress, I’m just not that into the white ankle socks with the flat loafers. I prefer it with a high heel strappy sandal or a knee-high leather boot either flat or heeled. But, she pulls it off beautifully…

bohemian style…

In keeping with the bohemian vibe that is present this season, I want to share this mini dress that I came across while shopping one of my favourite sites. It seems perfect for me although I don’t normally gravitate towards anything more than an inch or two above the knee (well, unless I’m at the beach of course). This dress somehow is short without feeling short. I love how light and breezy it feels and I absolutely am ga-ga over the added tassels at the hem.
