Styling floral trousers with an off white top.

Hi there, how's your week been?
I have to say that for the past week, at about 9pm I've been at a bit of a loose end!  The reason being a TV programme has come to an end, yes I'm sad to say my favourite 'must watch' has finished.  
What you ask could it be?  Love Island!  For those who are unfamiliar with this have-to-watch Telly programme it's about mixing a group of young people - hoping for them to find love!  Watching their antics and listening to their talking had me and the girls either in fits of laughter or in tears!  Anyhow it's definitely one for the female sex - hubby absolutely hated it and is glad it's finally over!  Back to the football then I suppose!!!

Again for me my weekend was a busy one!
Youngest daughter's birthday on Friday, so having family and friends around was the first get-together of the weekend.  Drink and nibbles were served to our guests - followed by birthday cake.
Saturday morning had me err .... let's just say recovering from the drinks & late night!
I Livened up in time to attend a hen night in our local Cantonese restaurant, a venue that has live music along with a buffet meal with entertainment included.
The cabaret singer had a few of us busting some moves on the dance floor, enjoying sounds of the 80's, 90's and more.  Worrying I'd not be able to move in the morning, but I was fine I must be fitter than I think - lol.
Sunday roast was on the menu yesterday, the first for a long time.  We've either been, out, away, eating take out food or cooking on a BBQ.  Everyone savouring chicken with vegetable and roasted potatoes - it's been too long roast dinner you've been missed!

Sharing my outfit choice today.  You may have seen these floral trousers a month or so ago.  Styled then with a plain green tee shirt.  A plain off white pretty blouse this time around.  Having bought this in Matalan sale (which is currently now on)  & wanting a neutral top I spotted this.  Seeing the colour first, then the frilly sleeves I knew it would be a default item in the wardrobe.  Having worn it twice since I bought it - only a week or so ago, I've proved myself right!









Here's a closer look at the cute frilly sleeves, cap  detailing on the shoulder is very flattering, but also feminine.  Wearing the green choker again with this look.  Have you bought a choker yet - they're in lots of the stores, in many different styles and colours this three pack is very cute for only £8.99 from H & M.


Guess who's bombing my shot?  Yes it's my princess - who sometimes wants to be called 'The Queen', not sure where she's got that from, but I don't mind with the love I have for her she can be called anything - lol.

Anybody been buying for the Autumn yet?  Laurie from Vanity and Me has been sharing the AW17 Pantone forecast charts - and I'm musing over many of the colours.  There'll be a shopping expedition for MummaB very soon, I'll be needing some new choices in my collections!

Top from Matalan.
Trousers from Florence and Fred.
Sandals from Florence and Fred.
Choker from H & M.



Hope you can all stop by on Thursday, I'm sharing another outfit from Bonmarche with you all, and I feel you're going to love it!

See you soon. X

  1. Happy belated birthday to you're daughter! Sounds like a fabulous weekend! I never had Sunday's roast. In September we are staying four a few days in the UK abs then I'll make sure I eat it in a good pub!

  4. The trousers look great! I do a roast nearly every Sunday - funny old tradition isn't it, but we wouldn't be without it.

    1. I love it when the family are all together, but it does tend to be more of a Winter trend for us. Thanks for your comments Gail.x

  5. That top would quickly become a favorite of mine as well. I love its simplicity, but the sleeves just add a little twist to it. You can pair it up with anything, jeans, trousers, pencil skirt, with a blazer/jacket, etc. Looks great!

    And, wow, you are one busy lady.
