Vionic Sandals - comfort all day long! #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning, welcome to my blog today - how are all you over fifty ladies doing?

Today I'm so excited to be sharing these oh-so-comfortable espadrille sandals with you.  I was recently in contact with Vionic Shoes* and after scouring their website I settled on these darlings.  Drawn by the colour and the ankle tie ribbon.  I've heard so much about this company and wanted to find out for myself just what all the fuss was about!

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Style Steal - White, Denim & Tan, what better mix?

Hi there lovelies.
Thanks for stopping by.  Can you believe it's the middle of the year already?  Only a few days before we have our longest day!  I always feel rather sad when getting to this point in the year because although we have a long hot summer in July and August to appreciate (who am I kidding - lol), the nights gradually start to draw in, meaning we're heading towards cooler weather, shorter days and Winter.  But let's not get ahead of ourselves there's still plenty of warmer, sunnier climbs to enjoy. What's more I've got a whole mountain of summer clothes to wear, and a week in Ibiza too!
Here's my latest Style Steal featuring a look that screams summer - a white dress.

Who can go wrong with a white dress, a denim jacket, tan accessories and a pretty turquoise necklace?

Wide leg trousers & Cold shoulder top. #LINKUP #chicandstylish

Morning, are you ready for some w - i - d - e  leg trousers?
I do hope so because I'm sharing these extra wide floral pair today!  Also the #chicandstylish #LINKUP is live today, why not add a post of two?

I had these wide leg trousers for quite a few years now, the girls bought them for me a few birthdays ago.  I consider them quirky and they come out to play every once in a while.  Today I've paired them with this gorgeous, deep coral pinky red top.  I bought this especially to wear with the trousers, picking out the flower perfectly.  I also like the cold should box style of this pretty top. Making it a summer must-have!

Best of the last six months.

Hi there lovelies.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Just back from a fabulous few days away  I feel it's going to take me a little while to get back to normal, although I'm fully refreshed as I knew I would be.  The weather in L'Escala was very favourable for me and I spent three wonderful days lounging on the beach.  This destination is more like going home rather than a holiday.  I first visited Spain way back in 1984, when three important things happened to me.   Getting engaged to my soul mate, buying our first house together and travelling abroad on holiday with my now hubby.  Plenty of things there have changed over the years, and I have some amazing memories of brilliant holidays with my family and close friends.

First day going to the beach ….

TK Maxx for dresses #LINKUP #chicandstylish

Morning my fellow bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by today, although I'm away for a few days I've still managed to get a blog post out today, woo hoo!  I'm not sure how because I've been soo busy!  Birthdays, nights out and generally running around like a lunatic!
I'm sure at the moment I'll be sunbathing on a beach or sipping a sangria in the bar, either way I'll be relaxing I'm sure!  Sorry don't mean to rub it in lol, but this over fifty blogger needs a little R & R.

Packing for any kind of holiday or long weekend always brings it's own little problems, and I always seem to struggle with what to select.  Getting it wrong more than I get it right!  I either pack to much, not enough, the wrong choice, or just the wrong season, lol!

Impromptu nights out & Hokey Pokey Ice Cream.

Hi there lovelies.
How are you all?
Another birthday is being celebrated today, my youngest son turns 21!  I still can't believe he can be that age especially as I'm still only 18. 😂
I've had a brilliant weekend, you know when nothing is planned and then last minute someone suggests an impromptu walk along the seafront with a few drinks along the way, culminating with dinner in a local restaurant.  Yes we've all had one of those, well sometimes they can be the best nights by far - can't they?

With the weather reaching the high 20's it felt like I was on the Mediterranean rather than the English Channel!  I even went out without, yes you read correctly without a jacket.

Lanhydrock NT + #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning lovelies.
Glad you could stop by today - please do read further and join the #chicandstylish #LINKUP with a blog post or three!

Last weekend I had a little break in Cornwall.  We took my mum to see her brother and have a couple of nights in the fabulous Pencubitt House, which is situated in Liskeard.  Arriving after a journey lasting roughly 7 hours (yer … I know a long journey) which included stopping for lunch, I had well and truly earned the G & T that was waiting for me!

Style Not Age - My Jumpsuit Joy!

Hi there ladies, how's May going for you?
Today It's time for May's Style not Age challenge.

I've been away in Cornwall for the weekend with my family & only just got back!  After the busy couple of weeks I've had lately it's been nice to take time away to collect my thoughts and relax a little.
The stunning Pencubitt House which is situated in Liskeard played host this weekend.  I enjoyed the surroundings of the countryside in Cornwall whilst partaking in drinking large G & T's, wine and wonderful food - well someone has to! 😉 The silence interrupted by the distant mooing of cows, the flapping and swooping of the swallows building their nests & our intermittent laughter! I'll be sharing a post about my weekend away soon, so hope you'll watch out for that one!
Back to the Style not Age Challenge ….

May's task fell into the lap of Anna.  My Jumpsuit Joy has been one of my favourite challenges so far, and I jumped in (sorry) with two feet.  I did think I'd be buying a new jumpsuit as you've seen all my collection already, here's my snakeskin choice, orange is the new black pick & finally my faux velvet style steal.
