Just enjoying the sun!

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

I will readily and unashamedly admit it... I love short dresses! Perhaps it's because I never got the chance when I was young or perhaps it's just the feeling of freedom compared to jeans/pants.

( btw, did you read about that woman who couldn't walk after having squatted for hours in skinny jeans? )


It might also be because I feel my legs are still presentable while I'm pushing 40. I don't know.. do you think there is an age after which one should stop wearing dresses like these?


Incidentally, as you might remember a few posts ago.. I was wearing a short blue dress which was lent to me by a friend and she only wears it jeans.. as for her, it's too short. This stripy patterned dress was given to me by another friend ( yes.. I'm very lucky with my generous friends! :) ), who basically says that this dress is a top. :-P


I'm sure there are situations, occasions and places where it's inappropriate to wear a dress like this, but when one is casually strolling along the lakeside.. I think it's okay, right? ;-)


Oh, speaking about lakes and water.. I said in the last post that I would try to mix it up with the backgrounds.. as they were all water-related.. but I couldn't help myself! :-P



So, for real.. next time, I will find something else! :-D

Oh, the video I posted on YouTube was made with both my phone, a Samsung Galaxy S6, and my video camera, a Sony HDR-PJ810. Any preferences?

  2. I really don't think there is an age to stop wearing short dresses as long as you feel confident in what you're wearing. You are lucky to have such generous friends. :))

  15. Your legs are more than presentable, they are absolutely perfect so you should wear short dresses as often as possible. Last summer my grandmother told me I should wear more short dresses and skirts...isn't that funny? I got the same advice from some other elderly family members. It is not true that all older people are conservative.

    I don't think there is a certain age where we should stop wearing something...I've seen people in their eighties wearing shorts and short skirts, and if they are comfortable, why not?

    This plaid dress looks wonderful on you...and those heels are to die for...perfect outfit for a relaxing walk....

    Sometimes short garments aren't appropriate (for example some work places may require a more stict code of dressing ) but in our free time, why not wear them?

  22. Hello Natassia! With those legs you can wear all the mini dresses in the entire world! I love mini dresses too and I can't imagine not being able to wear them. I am 45 and I think that as long as I continue feeling good wearing them, I will be ok:-) And perhaps life is all about doing what makes us happy, right? So you keep wearing your favorite mini dresses because they look amazing on you and I really like the one you are wearing today. Take care girl! XOXO, Jeannette
