Wide and cropped trousers

How easy is it for an older woman to wear this summer's wide and cropped culottes and trousers? Over-45s blog Is This Mutton? tries a couple of pairs for size.
Now there's a line to strike fear into most older women's hearts:  wide cropped trousers. Last year we had ankle grazers but they were mostly straight or narrow legged.  This year, "what's trending" on Asos tells me that wide, cropped trousers/ culottes are going to be very big this summer. In more ways than one.

Find your perfect Mother of the Bride/Groom dress

Shopping for a mother of the bride or groom outfit is a minefield. You want to look cool and contemporary, in an outfit that flatters. But too many dresses are sleeveless or in a fabric that clings.  And you don't want to go too mainstream in case someone else is wearing the same dress. Here are some tips on finding your best outfit.

Lotus Cattleya sandals and Joseph Ribkoff dress

A summer dream team for parties or weddings: Lotus Cattleya sandals in nude with a flattering Joseph Ribkoff dress in lime and leopard print.
I was thrilled to be gifted these gorgeous Cattleya high stiletto heel peep toe sandals from Lotus. Look at the elegant cut out style, which has some diamante that sparkles very invitingly.  And they slip on, with no straps needing to be adjusted. Even better, they're a neutral colour which goes well with anything.
