L'age in the city
A few quick pics for you displaying some rather lovely looks from ladies in l'age this summer.
Dressed for business but not at all stuffy, Madame Jaune displays just the right touch of summery frivolity with her full and flowery skirt, toned down a tad by the blazer, then punctuated with yellow sandals. Nicely done.
Striding confidently out of her office tower, Madame Pinstripes(no idea how to manage this in quasi-francais)has managed to look corporate, summery and whimsical due to two important goings-on: First, the suit is linen - all the difference in the world with its softness, and secondly, her silver-thonged birkenstocks. It sounds like it might not be a good idea, but it totally worked. Maybe she returned to her corner office and donned a pair of serious pumps, but honestly, the birkenstocks looked modern and fabulous. If the suit had been in wool it might have been like the old '80s running-shoe-corporate-suit thing that we're better off to just forget. But this was different.
I must add here that in addition to her well-attended ensemble, she had a fabulous ass. Not small, you understand, but totally amazing. And she carried it off with shoulders back, head up - absolutely rocking her l'ageness. It was a good day.
Tomorrow, my favourite summer dress in l'age and why.
