The world is your oyster.


Morning, and welcome to my blog.

What's this over fifty fashion blogger been up to over the past week?
Saturday had me at two parties, the first being my granddaughters little tea party - fun time with three year olds.
Saturday evening joining friends for a BBQ to celebrate an 18th birthday party.  A fun evening catching up with friends,  a little chilly for the outfit I had wanted to wear, so boots and jacket had to be included in my choice.  I didn't manage to catch any photos of what I wore, so thought I'd show this one to you all instead.

This mural is randomly painted on a house wall in our local town, the quirky high street has a few odd wall paintings dotted around, and make fun backdrops.  This mermaid being the biggest I figured it would be a fun starting point,  it may have been too big to include in all the shots, however the second picture shows just how big it is and how small I look!!
Portraying an oyster in it's shell, but more importantly the world is your oyster, grab every moment, live every second and party whenever you can, life is too short to waste time on worrying (I'm still trying to learn this on) - look after your friends and family, and if you love them, tell them!








I adore wearing culottes which is such a shame because hubby hates them!  They are so easy to wear, comfy, roomy and stylish.  Dressed up or down they always look super.  I paired mine with this long tunic, sleeveless style that I'm not totally at ease with, my arms do look huge in the photos, two options I can do to avoid this, one by wearing a cardigan and the second lift some weights!! Lol.

My tunic has some lovely colours running through it, so in turn brighten up an otherwise dull look. 
The blue clutch came into play again - I really wanted to grab my shiny black patent bag, however with a little coxing from my god-daughter I gave in to use the blue one instead. 

Finishing off with these tan suede courts, again this was a little out of my comfort zone - I would have gone with black, but viewing the results I'm starting to think in a different way - maybe at times my 3 colour rule will take a back seat!  I'm even having little thoughts of pattern matching in my outfits!!!! Heavens above - mummabstylish matching patterns whatever next!!! Okay that should have a 'possibly' in that sentence. Lol.










I'll be back again on Thursday, I'd love you to stop by again. 
Enjoy your week, there's a long weekend in sight - what will you be getting up to?

  4. An amazing wall, can't believe that gable is so huge and has no windows. That location is going to be a hard act to follow!
    You look gorgeous, my darling, your lovely dark hair looks good with all colours. Like the mix of lime and blue in the pattern.
    Like the colour mix in that top.
