Bonmarche Wide leg & Sunflowers #LINKUP

Morning lovelies, are you ready for the #chicandstylish #linkup? 
I'm looking forward to seeing your offerings this week, I'm sure they'll be full of sunshine and bright colours, but if not don't worry because I love seeing all your looks!

Today I wanted to show off this beautiful sunflower top, if this doesn't remind us of lazy summer days, I don't know what will!  Although I'm hoping the weather yesterday was a sign that it's changing for the better, I was so bloomin' hot, all the doors and windows open it was a real treat!
I had the pleasure of looking after my prince and princess yesterday as mummy and daddy had to go out.  Well it was full of laughs - mostly at my expense!  Spending about 10 minutes trying to put up the buggy - why are they so difficult until you realise just how easy they are (upon checking YouTube lol)! 
I also spent about 20 minutes looking for my phone, convinced princess had hidden it.  I could hear it ringing behind me but could not find it ... yes you've guess, it was in my back pocked - one red faced nannie right here! 👋 ... he he he.


How pretty is this Sunflower Bardot Gypsy* top?  When asked to pick a few items from the latest collection from Bonmarche I was stunned at the amount of goodies I wanted!  They really have upped their game over recent years and it's shining through in all the garments. Here's my previous choices.

M & S Blouse three ways or more!

Hi there lovelies, how you all doing?
I have to say I've had a wonderful weekend, you might be thinking I been out shopping, out for a interesting evening or spending the night with great company, eating gourmet food and drinking delicious wine, but you'd be wrong.  Actually I've been gardening with hubby and then sitting on the sofa watching TV with a takeaway!  I've had a brilliant weekend.  The weather was delightful, warm and sunny with a real Spring feel which is about bloody time really!  Better weather always gives me a spring in my step along with renewed energy that evades me over the winter period.  We managed to cut the grass, trim the hedge and generally tidy up some of our over-grown garden.  So happy with the results, but there's still a lot to do.



Do you remember the pretty lilac blouse I purchased from good old M & S?  Turns out my former 5Over50 colleague Gail had bought the very same one!

Kent & Sussex Steam Train. Weekend away. #LINKUP

Hi there, thanks for joining me today, are you going to join the #LINKUP I do hope so!

You might recall last Saturday I spent the night in Tenterden after spending the evening travelling on the Kent and East Sussex Railway.  We were celebrating a special birthday of a close friend and the weekend certainly was a celebration.  Arriving mid-afternoon we had a quick look around the town, stopping for a drink in a local hostelry.  If you follow me on IG you'll have seen I found the house my Nan lived in, having last visited her when I was roughly 8, I congratulated myself that everything was as I remember!  I longed to knock on the door and have a look around, but thought that rather cheeky so didn't do it!  I have many happy memories of afternoon tea around her coal fire, albeit rather strong tea for a child!  Thinking it funny to have a coal scuttle in the kitchen and coloured glass (yellow I think) in the bathroom window!  She always had potted Hyacinths on the table, and to this day every time I smell one it takes me back to my nans front room!  Strange how aromas evoke feelings and memories as soon as the smell hits your nose!

Bonmarche Skirt, Blouse & 'must have Jacket'.


Morning ladies,  how's it going?
Things are going well for me.
I had a wonderful night out on Saturday, we stayed in Tenterden, which is about an hour away from where I live.  Our evening plans were to ride on the Kent and East Sussex Railway which included a five course meal.  Pop back on Thursday for the full post plus the #chicandstylish #linkup

Recently I was very kindly asked to pick a few pieces from the new Bonmarche Spring collection and this jacket was top of my list.  Laurie from Vanity and Me Style also has the same jacket - great minds eh?  I have to say it's definitely the 'must have jacket'* of the season, and if you want a new jacket and only buy one I suggest you pick this one!  Season appropriate because it's going to compliment more-or-less any outfit.  You can dress it up with a flattering skirt or dress it down with jeans.  Have you guessed I love my new PU addition? PU-abulous!! Lol

Lotus Shoes - Houston Handbag #chicandstylish #linkup


Hello lovelies, hope you're having a fabulous week.
Rather enjoying the fact that it's been a short one after the Bank Holiday on Monday.  Meaning the weekend is nearer which is great as hubby and I are having a cheeky night away.  We'll be boarding the Kent & East Sussex steam train for a journey and meal, with a night in the local hotel.  I'm looking forward to enjoying the company, atmosphere and gourmet meal.  I'll be sharing this weekend jaunt in the next couple of weeks.

Another exciting day on Friday as it's my grandsons first birthday!  Wow that year went quickly.
So with some fun times coming up I'd like to share a fun bag with you.


On Monday I featured the fabulous wedges I've been sent from Lotus Shoes and today it's the Handbag's turn.

My Lotus Nude Wedges - the perfect shoe!

Happy Easter Monday everyone.
How are you all doing?
With the weather still doing it's own thing ( it's getting boring now!)  I just had to break out a spring outfit, in hope to maybe tease the weather into changing for the better!
Having had a wet beginning to the Easter weekend I hoped for a brighter day yesterday, when I had arranged a mini Easter Egg Hunt for my little princess.  As it turned out the grass was way too wet for any fun and games so we resorted to hiding the eggs indoors.  She had a great time searching for the chocolate eggs and she ended up with some twenty odd yummy eggs in various sizes culminating in a large white chocolate bunny hiding in a cupboard!  So after a busy weekend of her first trip to the cinema to watch Peter Rabbit,  picking her own Easter egg (two really) on a shopping trip with me and grandad, finishing with the Easter Egg Hunt she really has had an egg-citing Easter! Sorry. X


Last year I styled a chambray shirt dress.  I'd wanted something in this soft denim drape for a long time, and it took quite a few shopping trips (such hard luck - lol) until I found the right one.  Pop over and see how I styled it last April with tan accessories and my basket bag.

Frilly Shirt & Grey #ChicandStylish #linkup

Morning lovelies.
Hope you are well.
On Monday I hope you caught my post featuring the ladies from Style not Age group.  Our task, set by me, was Polka Dots!
I bought two tops, one the cute yellow top from Zara, (that you can see here) the other a dainty blouse from H & M. Initially I had in my mind to return the second blouse, but I tried it on, & now I'm not so sure!
I thought I'd put it out to you lovely readers to decide whether I should keep it or not!
