Feeling a Bohemian vibe wearing this new Zara dress

Feeling a Bohemian vibe wearing this new Zara dress. 
.
I could be pregnant with twins under it - but that would be a miracle -  -  or hiding any number of things under its volumes of fabric.
.
It's not a sexy dress or a flattering dress for anyone with boobs as it hangs straight from them - but it's cool and airy with a fun print and vibrant colours that bring joy to the wearer. 
.
Is it too young a dress to wear at the age of 66?  Who cares - I am enjoying wearing it.
.
When we enjoy and feel good wearing a particular item of clothing - we as women - feel confident, positive and empowered.
.
This is a happy dress.

Happy Chinese New Year The Year of the Rat

“Gong hei fat choy” in Chinese translates to:
“Wishing you great happiness and prosperity.”

Wearing the colour red symbolises luck, joy, vitality, celebration and good fortune in Chinese culture.

May all your wishes, hopes and dreams come true for you this new year.

The Summer wardrobe is finally having an airing this week.

The Summer wardrobe is finally having an airing this week.
.
Summer has arrived in London at the same time as my busiest fun week of the year.
.
It makes a change to wear real clothes instead of daily fitness kit lycra which everyone walks around London in, even if they're not going to the gym.
.
Girls night out with Marcia McCabe at my cousin Russ Kane's pre-Edinburgh festival warm up gig at the Albany pub, London. .
Wearing halter neck silk top and limited edition customised jeans from Zara ( summer 2018) and vintage denim jacket.
.
I can remember a newspaoer article a while ago saying at what age are you too old to wear jeans? .
I say never too old.

Difficult to know what to wear when the weather changes from hot and muggy to cold and rain

Difficult to know what to wear when the weather changes from hot and muggy to cold and rain and you're sitting outside the restaurant for dinner.
.
The way forward seems to be mixing Summer and Winter wardrobes.
.
Chanel-style cotton rib dress from Zara (Summer 2018) with vintage leather jacket. .
Photo seems to be slightly out of focus. Think the photographer may have had one drink too many

Been off grid for a week as I dropped my phone and the screen broke

Been off grid for a week as I dropped my phone and the screen broke even with all bumpers and protection.
.
£220 later for Samsung S9+ screen/whole frame replacement ( and that was one of the cheaper quotes) I'm now catching up.
.
So...
Never too old to love a live music gig..
Especially when it's a mother and daughter girls night out. Fleetwood Mac at Wembley.

Good morning Monday. Here’s to a great week.

Good morning Monday.
Here's to a great week.
.
I'm wearing:
Zara dress (this season £19)!
And 
Debenhams Jacket (2018)
John Lewis Valentino Rockstud look-alike shoes (2018)
Whole outfit under £100 
.
Btw...
To all who look at others' Instaposts wishing that your life is as glamorous, colourful, fun, full of socialising and excitement - 
Most people's are not, Including my own. .
I'm not out every night, nor am I at the gym everyday. .
My posts are simply the parts of my life that I hope are interesting.
.
I hope to inspire with lifestyle tips of fashion, style, fitness, nutrition, health and beauty as a 64 year old woman with no filters or editing to show that you can be active, fit and enjoy life to the full whatever age you are. .

@bbc5live @emmabarnett . Chatting about age- #BeAgeProud and being real on BBC5live at 10.50am this morning with Emma Barnett. .

@bbc5live @emmabarnett .
Chatting about age- and being real on BBC5live at 10.50am this morning with Emma Barnett.
.
Why I no longer feel the need to fib about my age even when I reach another milestone birthday. Looking in the mirror each morning isn't always the best as i still feel like my younger self inside but the mirror tells a different story.
.
When we were in our teens or twenties,  we aged ourselves up to appear more wordly and maybe to be taken more seriously by those older than us especially for career advancement.
.
However when we reached our 40s and onwards we fibbed and lopped years off to remain as long as possible in the previous decade.
.
Now that we look after ourselves better with a healthy lifestyle and diet, nutrition knowledge, fitness and beauty regimes, we can look our best and be proud of how we look naturally whatever our age.
.
I'm proud to look the way I do in my 60s.
.
Of course I would like to look like I did when I was in my 20s but I'll settle for being the best version of how I am now.
.
I've had amazing life experiences in my 60plus years and two wonderful children. 
Ive no need to fib any longer.
.
I want to inspire women of all ages.
