Out and About as Covid Restrictions Ease: And Link Up

Casual fashion for the over 40s.  Blue jeans with abstract patterned top, silver loafers and blue sequinned straw bag.
I had a few days off last week and finally went "Out Out."  Here in the UK we are now allowed to travel, and to go to pubs/restaurants/hair salons and so on. Social distancing and lots of sanitizers are still the order of the day.

I went by car to see my mum in Plymouth, a 250 mile drive.  The car was quite surprised at this sudden activity, after weeks of only going to the supermarket, and promptly told me it wanted a service.

Style Steal: Suzy Turner's Red and Khaki - and Link Up

There's an old saying that red and green should never be seen, but as they're opposites in the color wheel, this can be taken with a pinch of salt. Colors that are opposites often look fabulous together.  This was demonstrated a few months ago when blogger and author Suzy Turner wore a khaki and red combination.  I resolved to do a "style steal," and it's taken a while but here it is.

Casual Fashion Look Over 50 - and Link Up

Woman in Bowie t-shirt black jeans and white trainers
I've got a new Bowie t-shirt. You may remember my other one which Shelbee featured as a style steal. Like the other one, I bought it on eBay. Bowie was so cool that even his slogan t-shirts have a bit of an edge over other rock icons. Well, in my opinion!
Styling a Bowie t-shirt, a casual look for any age group
Summer makes shooting blog pictures very challenging because the garden is quite snall and north facing so gets a lot of shade and contrast during the day. So I moved to the garage and lane area to take these few pictures.

I riffed on the orangey-red logo with my accessories: black and red cat's eye sunglasses, an orangey red lipstick and a suede bag from Dune. My black jeans are very old, from Marks and Spencer, and I have yet to find a pair that beats them! I love the length because I'm not very keen on jeans that hover above the ankle.  The white trainers are my Adidas Stan Smith's from last year. Nothing was gifted for this post.

Now it's time for the weekly link-up #WowOnWednesday, a chance for bloggers to find new readers.  Some of the big linkies are now not operating so I'm opening #WowOnWednesday for longer. It'll be open from 6.30am UK time on Wednesday  22 April until Monday 27th April.

What makes it different, I hope, from other link-ups is that I try to promote a few of the posts featured during the week, on Facebook and Twitter  (see my social channels below).  Please show the blogs some love and leave your comments, it's so appreciated by all of us.

The readers' favourite (most clicked) last week was Mireille from MireilleFashionTravelMom with her post What is My Signature Style?  I love this particular skirt of Mireille's and it looks so cool with the striped top.
I loved the latest style steal from Anna at The Glam Adventure. She's really getting these so right, this time channeling J Lo with a Denim on Denim look. A very wearable look for all of us.  I loved the make-up look that surprisingly came via an app called Lumyer.
