On Tuesday I turned 60!! Woohoo!
Feeling so blessed! Let’s talk about turning 60 shall we? I can honestly say that this feeling of looking forward to another birthday really started at 50 for me. It was a milestone and I felt like life was finally going to start giving me the time I so desperately chased for all the time. And every birthday since, I’ve been looking forward to the next. It sounds kind of nuts actually, when you consider how society and the media feeds us all this info on how to remain ‘young’. We can’t actually do that- nor go back in time! Truly, I’ve never felt better, more at peace and most of all so in control of my own freedom. I wanna say that ageing is a liberating process for me. I can do so much more of the things that I want to do- finally!
So rather than dwelling on how to bring back the past, I’m celebrating how far I can go!
I’ve got lots to look forward this week and on! The kids are planning a birthday party for me:) I’ll be posting more pics on that next week! And even more exciting and important, by next week, I should also be sharing another blessed news! Stay tuned!
For my birthday outfit, I chose a favourite slinky jumpsuit of mine. I adore the comfort, the colour and the flattering cut on this one. Paired with a sheer animal print blouse, I get the comfort of just the right cover-up that will take me anywhere without me worrying about weather, or how I want to look and feel depending on the place, event or time of day. Don’t you just love it when an outfit can do all that?
And today, to kick off my birthday weekend, I thought I’d jazz it up with a super colourful dress and a satin green kimono. There’s nothing I find more deliciously chic than wearing slinky lingerie out- rather than for sleep- how about you?
And also, for my Birthday week, I recorded a Podcast! I speak a bit about my feelings on turning 60, as well as sending you an invite, asking you: How do you feel about turning 60, 70, 80…!!?? Let’s share our views and experiences- Let me interview you!! LISTEN HERE TO “TURNING 60- AN EXCITING TIME”:
AND NOW ……….
Are we ready for some FABULOUS FASHION DIVAS??? Since it’s my Birthday week, I thought I’d choose more than one Diva today…So, I chose 5!!! (and trust me, I’m really limiting myself- it’s always so difficult to choose!!)
Starting off with Carrie of Curly Crafty Mom. I’m loving this blush dress on her so much!! Strike a pose: Vogue!
Next, Darlene of Aquamarine Style. How darling is she in this zebra print and shorts?! Never met an animal print I didn’t fall head over heels for, and this one is divine. Hotness alert!
Third on this FABULOUS list is Rena of It’s all Fine Whatever Blog. How good does she look?! This babe is giving me all the beach vibes with this perfect laissez-faire styling- and that hat! I just wanna be on that beach! I’m also totally envious of that mane, you??
Fourth Fashion Beauty is this sizzling diva, Ashley of Le Stylo Rouge. Adorable overload is what she is! You all know how crazy I am for yellow…well I’m totally in love with this gem of a dress. And with the wedges, it just comes together so perfectly. Love it!
Last, but certainly not least…I mean, did you actually think I could leave this Fashionista off my list??? Sheila of Ephemera Blog! I’m so into powder blue and feminine these days (remember last week’s duster?)…and then don’t I land on Sheila’s post where she is styling the whole package with this dreamboat dress! The epitome, my darlings. A true Sheila Statement of course! Gorgeous!
And it wouldn’t be a Fabulous Friday if I didn’t include my FAVOURITE READ from last week’s Linkup Party: Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge for her post on: Affirmations for Love and Compassion. I absolutely loved reading about this and am now incorporating these in my daily. So interesting and inspiring!
It’s now YOUR TURN!!!
Please come and LINKUP YOUR POSTS with me for my FABULOUS FRIDAY’S LINKUP PARTY!!!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading- I appreciate you! Have a great weekend everyone- see ya next week!!
Happy Happy Birthday, my sweet fabulous friend! I view birthdays quite the same as you. Aging is very liberating and I just grow wiser and more comfortable in my own skin with each passing year. Why the heck would anyone want to go backwards when forward is so much better?! I am loving both of your birthday outfits, but that tie dye dress with the gorgeous green kimono is speaking to my soul! Absolutely stunning! Thanks so much for the feature this week, too! What a lovely way to start my weekend!
Thank you for all your kind words Shelbee! Birthdays are great moving on, I find too! And yes, that green kimono is just delicious lol!
Happy Birthday to you Lucy!! I hope you have a fabulous time. I agree with everything you have said – I turned sixty last year and I’ve never felt happier and more in control of my life. Here’s to the next adventure.
So nice to hear this Alison! I find I’m hearing this more and more compared to the women of my past who dreaded getting older as of 30! Times have changed for the better. And you are one hot 60 mama xx Thanks so much!
Happy birthday! Enjoy the rest of your celebration this weekend!
Thanks o much Mireille! I will post about it:)
This is a fabulous motto … “So rather than dwelling on how to bring back the past, I’m celebrating how far I can go!” I hope that you have a marvelous time celebrating your birthday and thank you for the lovely compliment on my post. You have an invitation to enjoy my beach with me any time your heart desires.
That sounds so good to me- I’m a total beach bum! I’m crazy about that motto too- I should hashtag it and tweet it lol!! Thanks Rena, I loved featuring you xx
Happy happy birthday but I’m not sure I believe you Lucy. I need to see some ID please, LOL!!!
HAHAHAHA!!! YOu’re too cute Jodie xxx
I absolutely LOVE the halter dress and satin kimono, Lucy. It is so pretty and eye-catching! Happy, happy 60th and welcome to the 60s club! I totally agree that this is the time in our lives when we can truly do whatever the hell we want!! Thanks, my friend, for featuring my photo. And yes, I’m with you: I’ve never met an animal print I didn’t like! Lol!
Darlene you are such a babe! I feel so privileged to be part of this new group and am in fabulous company I see! Thanks ever so much xx
Happy birthday! I love the jumpsuit for your birthday outfit, it looks so good on you and that’s a great topper with it! But the fun colourful tie dye dress is my favourite 🙂

Thanks Mica- you’re so kind!! Have a great weekend too xx
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lucy! Wow, you are leading the pack and showing us all how to feel like ourselves and wear whatever the hell we want, regardless of our actual age! I adore both your dress (that lime green duster/lingerie piece?? be still, my heart!) and that incredible jumpsuit! I think my mom had one like that in the early 70s!
Thank you so much for featuring me and for introducing/reminding me of these other fabulous women! You are such a sweetheart. Thanks also for the link-party!
I’m going to listen to your podcast now. 🙂
Wishing you a wonderful birthday weekend, full of joy, friends, family and good times! Big virtual hugs to you, my dear friend!
Thanks for everything Sheila! Your comments light up my day! And yes, this jumpsuit actually is from the 70’s!! And the green kimono is number one on my list of faves for any occasion or time of day! Loved featuring you of course!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope it was a wonderful day for you!
It was! Thanks so much! xx
Happy Birthday, Lucy, and many more! You are gorgeous in whatever you wear. That green kimono is a hit! I cannot see that it was supposed to be lingerie. Anyway, as I always say: age doesn’t matter. Enjoy your every moment! – Angie, http://www.yourtrueselfblog.com
You are so kind! Thanks so much xx
Love your positive attitude towards birthdays! You’re such a role model for older women looking great and achieving their goals. Love the lime outfit !
Gail I appreciate you saying this- how wonderfully kind! Thank you ever so much xx
Happy birthday, Lucy! I totally agree that with age I’ve felt more at peace with myself. I love both of your outfits, but that dress & kimono? Dopamine styling! It makes me happy.
So glad to make you happy- that’s my whole dopamine styling point! Thank you Michelle xx
Wishing you a very happy and fabulous birthday, Lucy!

Thank you Cheryl!
Happy Birthday Lucy and enjoy this very special birthday weekend.
I’m always thankful for every year I have been given.
I so agree with your attitude! Thanks very much!
Happy birthday and thank you so much for the feature! 🙂 Wow, what a great way to look at it… I think at 50-60ish it is interesting how life really can slow down and you have time to do more things for yourself and relax a bit more. I love that tie dye in the first photo, so colorful and fab!
Thank you Carrie!! And I loved featuring you!
Wishing you the happiest of birthdays! I love your perspective on getting older! Love all of these fabulous looks!
Jill – Doused in Pink
Positive is the only way to look at it! The alternative is not yet for me lol! Thanks Jill xx
Happy Birthday Lucy! So great you are celebrating each year with gusto! I do agree with your philosophy on aging, there is a sense of freedom and coming into ones self at this age. No wonder you chose that jumpsuit, wootwoo!
Looks fabulous on you, and the other outfit is lovely too, I just love the vibrancy in it.
Thanks Jess- so happy you agree and thank you for the good wishes! xx
You look amazing! The colours and prints of the outfit really suit you! I hope you had a fabulous birthday! Thank you for hosting this link up!
