Hello and welcome back to my blog!
How's your weekend been?
I've enjoyed a special day yesterday as it was my eldest daughter's Birthday. I can't be old enough to have a grown up daughter with children of her own! I recall the day she told us they were engaged - visions of 'Father of the Bride' came to mind with Steve Martin's character double take look at his daughter announcing she was "getting married"!
All he could see was his six year old speaking!
But guess what, I am old enough and I have got a grown up daughter who's married WITH children - god I sound at least 52!!!! Lol.
She popped round for presents, cake and a glass of bubbly (I had bubbly she had tea!) we had a great catch up, and a few cuddles with my princess and prince - cos I hadn't seen them in AGES!! (In house joke between me and my princess), Okay the day before actually!!
Needing a little inspiration today, and where else to find that, but in the form of your wonderful blogs.
Whilst flicking through some over the weekend I spotted the gorgeous Andrea from Living on Cloud Andrea Nine wearing her denim jean jacket, along with a basic black dress and cute slip on pumps she looked very casual, but also very chic.
I decided to try and re-create this look but with a slight change - a black jumpsuit instead of a dress.
I've shown this before Here, but forgive the bad photos please!
Everyone should have a jumpsuit in their wardrobe, I mean who doesn't love a jumpsuit? I've got two, but looking to amend that anytime soon - there's always room for another one or three *wink, wink*!
This black crepe romper has very, yes very wide legs giving it a long dress kind of look and feel come to that, a tie waist, which could be exchanged for a rigid belt or even a chain belt would look fab! Fitting in with the fabulous frilly theme that's raging everywhere atm, it has a frill around the top of the bust, which I'm afraid I didn't catch in these shots! I have to add these were the first shots taken, by me on my own and 'on location' hehehe. But I'll try to remember to hide the remote control in future - can you spot it?
Spaghetti straps which are great for warmer days, plus the obvious cover-up being my denim jacket.
I simple adore my denim jean jacket. It's an item I nearly always go back to for so many occasions -
I get SO much wear out of this and it's been around for ages.
I'd recommend a denim jean jacket as a staple for any over fifties jacket collection, they're in most shops and come in such a huge collection of colours, styles and fits, you could have one for everyday of the week or month come to that!
Check out these cool choices Next for £32, M & S for £49.50 or this alternative white option from Debenhams for £34.96.

Until Thursday it's been great 'chatting' ... X
