Lunching with a couple of friends today, one I've not seen for a while so it will be good to catch up.
I'm always on the look out for suitable outfits for my over fifties fashion blog so whilst out shopping last week I spotted this gorgeous sheer blouse in the Matalan sale, I was drawn by the pretty colours, but wasn't sure if it would be a suitable garment to wear in the colder months.
I had an idea and quickly purchased said top, feeling rather happy with the bargain I'd bagged.
To be fair I would normally wear a little Cami t shirt underneath for two reasons, firstly it being very sheer fabric I'm not a fan of see-through tops, and secondly for extra warmth.
But my idea, probably not very original, but a first for me none-the-less, a white roll neck jersey jumper beneath the blouse - ta da! How good does this blouse look? matching the background colour just makes the flowers stand out more, and what rich colours they are!
The delicate fabric has a pretty floral design over it, in shades of pink, burgundy and green. With a tie neck detail around the collar and tiny gold button fastening at the cuff.
Selecting the burgundy in the blouse, burgundy seemed the right choice for leg wear. These straight leg trousers also from Matalan are only £16! Other colours available are black and blue a great staple for your wardrobe that can be matched with so many different blouses, jackets and jumpers the different outfits you can concoct are endless!
Borrowed middle daughters fur gilet/vest, which I think finished off this look brilliantly. The colours and texture mixed so well, making an impressive statement look. The fur gilet was from H and M last year, however I've spotted these just about everywhere and frankly I want them all. From Tesco to Debenhams they have prices to please most pockets - so grab a perfect addition that you won't be sorry you bought.
Do you remember the boots? My sale bargain from Florence and Fred. How can you forget them I seem to be wearing them all the time - so comfortable, stylish and a great neutral colour, I want to get the best use from them before the really bad weather arrives, when I won't be wearing them so much. I have sprayed them with protector, which is a really good idea, especially for a suede boot.
The photos we very kindly taken by my god-daughter Esther Ruby, and I can't thank her enough for the time and patience she puts into making them look super.
You can really see that pretty details on this sheer blouse. I love the colours across it.
The delightful flowers over it are so on point at the moment, and I'll still be able to wear this come the spring, with the aforementioned Cami t shirt.
Off to get ready for my girly lunch, I'll catch up again in the week.
One last word - good luck with black Friday, hope you get all you want.
