Great weekend - cant believe it's Sunday already!

Hey!  Where has the weekend gone, can't believe it's Sunday already.

Last night out, out with four friends to a local 'cook your own steak night' our second visit to this venue, see first visit here and still a fab idea for a great night out.
Here's last nights attire, another previous season, worn on repeat many times, but a dress that makes me feel special as soon as you put it on. 
I bought this from good old TK Maxx a few years ago, but love it to pieces and feel great whenever I wear it.  You can't go wrong with nude shoes and I've certainly got my monies worth with these.  Also from TK Maxx, these Lotus sling backs complete so many outfits, I'm thinking I need to find some court shoes that I can wear in the winter months.



Back to today, I've spent a lovely afternoon with family at my nephews for a few drinks and a little food.  Plenty of prosecco, just to top up what I drank last night!  A little BBQ buffet - including the likes of pulled pork, burgers and chicken tikka fillets - with all the extras from salad, coleslaw and tangy homemade guacamole. Perfect - and all the better because I didn't have to cook or prepare any of it!
Still amazingly hot here -  a little too hot to wear my planned white jeans, so I chose this dress.  It was a little hot in the high neckline this dress has, but I stayed out of the direct sun to keep me a bit cooler.
This striking bright orange dress is made from jersey and has a slight pattern all over the shift style dress.  No sleeves made for a more cooler feel, and sitting just on the knee was just about acceptable for my legs, although I'd feel better if it was slightly longer.









These gorgeous Guess snakeskins shoes were not my first choice with this dress, but when I slipped them on I found they picked  the reflection of my orange dress to complete the look I was after.  These are very comfortable, however a little high for me to wear anywhere other than car to bar!  I must add I did take some flat toe post sandals that were more suited for wear on the grass.
Please excuse the pink toe polish - this is on my 'to-do' list to change for a more autumnal colour.



I love you to do me a favour and subscribe to my blog so you don't miss a thing I've been doing.  Also you can catch my daily Instagram photos Here.

See you in the morning for another week in the life of Mummabstylish!

    1. Thanks Laurie, both older seasons, but I tend to buy classic styles that don't date! I always used to wear red, but then though blue was better - I do like both though.x
