The Pieces

Fleuri Dress

This is the perfect little easy summer dress. The A-line silhouette with princess seams is super flattering. Available in Black, Rapture Rose, and Royal Purple.  Be sure to size down. I’m wearing the XS.

  Pear Shape Alert: Though flattering for every body, this dress is really a winner for us pear shaped girls.  The dress is more fitted in the shoulders and chest, showing off a slimmer upper body.  Then the dress flares out, lovingly skimming the tummy, hips, and thighs.

Italian hair on hide leather thick belt with an animal print and large square belt.   Cute on jeans AND perfect with a dress or skirt.

Soft Surroundings blogger picks for summer

I have been really into neutrals lately. Not sure if that’s a temporary trend for me or a more permanent new direction.  I know for sure that shopping for neutrals makes mixing and matching more simple.  And I’ll forever be a fan of a pop of red!

What are your shopping tendencies lately, Dear Readers?  Let me know in the comments!

Also on the blog lately: my birthday, my haircut,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
