turquoise gingham

Continuing the clash of prints theme, I've paired my turquoise blouse with some printed pants. I went for geometrical prints this time!.
The weather hasn't improved, so I've kept wearing cardigans and raincoats last days. And my orange trench have received some compliments, which was pretty enjoyable and provided opportunities to chat.
However I'm always amazed when somebody tells me that would like to dress up in lively colors but doesn't have the courage to do it. I think that courage should be reserved for emergencies, not to dress up the way you like!.
Obviously, there are some other backhanded compliments, like "love that you're comfident enough to wear this" or "you look stylish/cool/beautiful for your size/age". I would like to have a witty replay ready for these ones!

Joining Patti and the visibles for another fab party at Visible Monday, and linking Fake It Until You Make It because fabulousness!

Siguiendo con la mezcla de estampados, ahora he combinado esta blusa en turquesa con pantalones estampados. Esta vez he elegido todo estampados geométricos!
El tiempo no ha mejorado, así que he tenido que seguir llevando chaquetas y gabardinas los últimos días. Y mi gabardina naranja ha recibido algunos cumplidos, lo que siempre es agradable y además da pie para charlar, que está muy bien!
Por otro lado, siempre me sorprende que alguien me diga que le gustaría vestirse en colores más vivos pero que no se ve con valor para hacerlo. Me parece a mí que el valor es otra cosa, más para casos de emergencia, no para vestirte como quieras!. De verdad me sorprende.
Y también hay otros falsos cumplidos, como 'me alegra que tengas confianza para ponerte eso" o "estás muy guapa/estilosa para tu edad/talla". Me gustaría tener una respuesta ingeniosa para estos comentarios!
Enlazo al Lunes Visible Visible Monday y también al Fake It Until You Make It, y os deseo una semana estupenda.

  1. I hate backhanded compliments like, "You look good for your age." Why don't they just stop at, "You look good"?

    I also don't understand why it takes courage to wear bright colours. Life is short, why waste it walking around in beige?


  2. Gosh, the turquoise looks amazing - I especially like it with the coral Great styling!! Lise

  3. Your geometrical trousers must be my favourite pair of yours, and it's looking fabulous with the turquoise gingham and long yellow cardigan. Your orange trench is able to brighten up the rainiest of days. Backhanded compliments are such a nuisance. And I've lost track of the number of times I heard the "I wish I had the courage" remark. I can't for the life of me understand why anyone chooses to be invisible in beige! Besos xxx P.S. I loved that anti-ageism video you posted on Facebook!

  4. Gah! I hate those backhanded compliments - if someone looks good I tell them. It's nothing to do with their dress size or age and all to do with the way they put an outfit together. That's why I refuse to add a "Over 50 blogger" tag to anything I do online!
    Loving both colour combinations here, the weather might be rubbish but you look fabulous! xxx

  5. You look lovely in all your outfits. So cool and stylish as always.

    Yes, I hate those backhanded compliments. What has age,size etc to do with it? if you're going to pay a compliment do so; don't quantify it!


  6. I get comments from other people who wish "they had the courage to dress like I do", and you are right, courage should be reserved for other more important things, like speaking up and doing the right thing in a tough situation, not whether or not you can wear that red jacket. It's more about doing what makes you feel good and not giving a f**k what other people think about your outfit.

  7. gray, gray and more gray! Boo. Think I'm in love with your sweater
