Jaeger on a Thursday?

Hello from MummaB ......

Whilst it's not out of the realms of reality to have Jaeger on a Thursday, this Jaeger is a stunning top & not a drink!

Half way through summer and some days are feeling decidedly more like Winter!  We never seem to get a happy medium here in the UK, it's either stifling hot or freezing cold. Never knowing whether to wear a strappy top and cropped jeans or long trousers, cardigan & a rain mac!

When the photos were taken a few weeks ago it was a quite hot - so with our changeable weather in mind I chose to wear my years old M & S white linen trousers, M & S have similar here
The linen palazzo trousers are cool enough to wear in hot weather, whilst still keeping my legs warm from the inconsistent windy weather!
Debuting this gorgeous Jaeger cotton mix top, I received from my sister for my birthday prezzie.  She knows my style really well and we tend to have similar likes and dislikes - we often love what each other wears, then subsequently by something exactly the same or similar.
So getting back to the top - the white with black leaf design top is sleeveless with a double frill running down the side - which is a statement detail that I find very appealing. 
Jaeger have been around for many years and produce effortlessly stylish clothing for both women and men.  The excellent quality shines through in garments for work and play without the designer price tags.  Jaeger you really are 'the bomb'!
Black and white has always been a winning combination in my eyes and I never get tired of wearing it.

How pretty is this backdrop?  Just right for showing this monochrome outfit.
You can see my version of the not-to-be-confused-with monochromatic look here on my blog post at 5Over50 share Monochromatic!








Are you a fan of linen trousers?  I've owned a few over the years and it does pay to spend a little bit more to get better quality.  Cheaper linen trousers have a tendency to stretch when being worn!  Who wants baggy, stretched clothes?
But remember linen never, ever goes out of style, so buy those trousers, dresses and shirts. You will always have something to wear in your wardrobe for any occasion. 
Linen can be dressed up or dress it down with some basic accessories, for example a stunning necklace over a dress for an evening out or a silky scarf and straw hat paired with linen trousers and flats for an afternoon shopping.

Let me know if and what you have that's linen in your life, I'd love to hear.

I'll be off now, my daughters birthday to prepare for along with a night out on Saturday!
Wishing you all a super weekend - whatever you do.

Bye for now. X

  5. Very classy outfit Jacqui, black and white is always so elegant! I read that Jaeger was in financial trouble so let's hope someone rescues them, it would be a shame if another British clothes firm went out of business.

  8. This look is so chic! I love when classic black and white gets refreshed like this. The frills on the top and the wide leg pant look so effortless and glamorous on you! And the monochrome really pops against the floral mural!

  16. A very stylish summer outfit! I don't think I own anything linen - I'm always put off by its tendency to crease, but it does feel lovely and cool in hot weather. I should really add a few pieces to my summer wardrobe. Thanks for linking up!
