Spring Dresses Over 40 (& Link Up)

May 3, 2018

Springtime always makes me think of pretty dresses. Whether you need a new dress for a special occasion like a graduation or wedding, or you just want to spruce up your work or weekend style, the right dress can make you feel special!  I’ve rounded up some fabulous ones available right now!


Dresses – Ageless Style

Of course I fully support anyone wearing whatever they want at any age.  When I use a title like “Dresses for Women Over 40” it’s just to help my tribe find me on the vast internet.  Every midlife body is different and every personality is different. I will say this though, at 40 and beyond many of us have certain body issues … maybe a bit of a tummy, or knees and elbows that you’d prefer to keep covered.   I try to keep these things in mind when I scour the internet for things to recomend.


Speaking of pretty dresses, I’m loving this one Nancy of  Nancy’s Fashion Style

from last week’s link up …

Spring is also the time of year that I do my yearly reader survey!  I’d be so grateful if you’d share your opinions with me.  Also, one lucky survey-taker will win a $100 gift card for Nordstrom (winner picked May 14th)!


Have the best start to your weekend, Dolls! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for sharing your style with our weekly link-up!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    Such cute dresses! I love the middle sones at the top, the red floral and chambray ones I could see myself wearing! 🙂

    Hope you are having a great week 🙂 I’m enjoying our cooler autumn weather, it’s a lovely change from the heat we’ve had this year!

    I love dresses! My mom is going to be happy that hem lines are now lower. She also likes dresses but not shorter ones.

    I really need to get myself some pretty spring dresses I just cut my hair off again and I think cute girlie frocks are the cutest with pixie hair!

    My mother should try some of these… she is 60 but I’m sure she’ll look younger in one of these… and she does look 10+ years longer, at least…
