Too good to keep under wraps …

Those of you who have read some of my other posts know that I am wanting to spread the word to women amongst us that we can look good and feel great at any age and at any size.

After a health crisis last year I no longer take even the simple things for granted.

I’ve put things in perspective and I choose to put myself and my need to feel and look good – when I want to – first!!

Perfectionism is a waste of time and I have learnt that life is far too short to waste it on worrying about being perfect.

What I want is to be in the moment and feeling joy from that moment.

So these photos are by no means perfect but show the lingerie on a real person in their own home.

The lingerie I wear gives me that strong sense of confidence to ignore the side-eye I frequently get because I wear what I like, rather than what society may think that I should …

Satin and Lace …

The lingerie I’m wearing in this post was purchased by me and all opinions are my own.

I love the basics of the black – it’s always beautiful and chic.

This bra and panty set is a pretty mix of satin and lace.

The shoulder straps are unusual, wide with a crochet look, which is the same as the lace edging around the bra itself.

This feature makes the bra so pretty and feminine, which I just love.

The panties are a comfortable fit on the hips and the delicate crochet look lace is just gorgeous…

I was glad that they did not make any lines through my clothing.

Brunch-coat Brilliance

I love a pretty brunch coat and this one ticks all the boxes with it’s simple, sheer black fabric and deep, scalloped lace edge along the hem and cuffs.

It’s great as a pretty cover-up and has a subtle effect over the lingerie underneath.

Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web today.

I’d love to hear what you think about the “inside story” in relation to clothing and how it affects how we see ourselves … so leave a comment or like or follow …

    • Thank you for your kind comment, Mahmoud, my purpose in wearing nice lingerie is not to give β€œsexual frenzy” but is to feel good, strong, empowered and positive from the inside out … Donna πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™

    • Oh Diane, Thank you so much for your kind comment although sometimes I worry that it some may find it inappropriate which is why I put on the warning … although I think it’s something that we as mature women are allowed to consider as we venture into the next phase of our lives, and to be honest I’m just glad to be alive and kicking! … Donna πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™
