Some Fabulous Sales Finds & WIWT

Morning ladies, you may recall a while I ago I shared with you my top picks from Baukjen's SS16 collection (see here) & mentioned that they were a great brand for shopping the sales due to all their pieces being so timeless.  So today I wanted to share with you my edit from their sale, as with up to 60% off it's the perfect time to treat yourself & perhaps upgrade some items currently hanging in your wardrobe.


Sales Edit. Sales Picks, My Midlife Fashion, Baukjen, everyday leather biker jacket. lea print dress. lea print shirt, Alesia wide leg culottes, nadinw chambray shirt, alesa midi dress, lena jumper, roewood print jumpsuit, roewood long line shirt




I could have included so many more pieces in my edit so if you like brand, or have been tempted to give them a try I'd certainly recommend you take a peek at their sale here.

Back to today & I'm wearing a beautiful dress that I've been kindly sent by Baukjen that's also in the sale but be warned it's now down to limited sizes, although they have similar sales dresses here & here.

Size wise I went up a size to a 10 as I didn't want the fabric to feel too restricted or too clingy & whilst it's slightly big on the neckline it means that the one sleeve falls slightly off my shoulder to give the dress a slightly less dressier feel - which I just love & as you know I'm quite partial to an off the shoulder jumper so this makes it perfect & to easier to dress down :-)

If you like this style of dress but worry about it drawing attention to the one area most of us wish was a little tighter, firmer & more toned (our tums!) then don't be as the skirt half of the dress has gorgeous ruching which distracts any unwanted attention as well as the pattern being the perfect Bet-tastic camouflage too.  Depending on preference you can also alter the length as the dress is a midi length if I pull it straight down or can be shortened by ruched more of the fabric across the hips.

So has anyone shopped the Baukjen sale yet?  If so I'd love to hear what got you 'clicking that button'. Talking of sales the Nordstrom sale starts today, which is always has some amazing pieces & with worldwide shipping it means we can all take advantage :-)  I'm hoping to get some time later today to take a peek but in the meantime you can grab yourself a bargain here.

A busy day for me as I have a couple of meetings, lunch out with my son (who has got the day off work :-) ) then this evening we have family over for dinner to continue our son's birthday celebrations.

Have a lovely Friday & I'll be back in the morning.

  1. I think am the only woman in her 50s who is just crap at clothes. I never know what to wear or when. Just rubbish at it. Have currently just given up!

    1. Hi Jennifer oh that's such a shame you feel that way. Don't give up it's just a matter of finding a style that suits you & fits in with your lifestyle. Then you can build a capsule wardrobe of pieces that will intermix so it doesn't become a nightmare of wondering what to wear with a few fail safe outfits for different occasions. To me clothes are a real confidence booster - if you feel good in what you wear I find it helps with confidence & also my general mood. If you're interested I offer styling services if you need a little help finding your way.
