Wimbledon - Anyone for tennis?


Morning ladies - is it Thursday already? 
Forgive me that I have to ask, but I've had a long weekend away, for those who don't follow me on IG I've been living it up in Ibiza on my nieces Hen Party - yes that's right this over fifty year old has been living it up with the 'youngsters' - doing it for the oldies, and I can say with hand on my heart it's been amazing!
I can't remember the last time I GOT IN AT 5AM!!! I thought that 5am was for getting up and going to the loo!!!!

Visiting many clubs & bars along with plenty of eating, drinking, sunbathing and laughs.   One club in particular, which is frequently visited by plenty of celebrities was Ocean Beach, this is predominantly aimed at the young and fabulous, & I was somewhat apprehensive about joining my young companions.
Worrying about what I should wear, how I should act, would I stand out like a sore thumb or risk embarrassing myself. 
Things are never as bad as you imagine, I shouldn't have been so anxious because everything felt normal, especially when looking around - what did  I see?  Plenty of cellulite!  Yes gorgeous, beautiful young ladies of all shapes and sizes WITH CELLULITE!  My inner demons were crushed right there - all ages can and do have the dreaded wobbly, fatty deposits - lingering undesirably on certain parts of their anatomy.
Visiting Ibiza Old Town was an absolute pleasure, I think I fell in love with this ancient city with its romantic little side streets, quaint restaurants, intoxicating aromas and dramatic castle lighting, making a vow there and then to bring hubby back to enjoy this romantic city in full! 
Watch this space as they say!


Anyhow apart for coming back to the usual chores, I've come back to enjoy Wimbledon.
Do you follow tennis?  I'm not an avid, have to watch sort of fan, more I'll watch if I'm home or if the players are interesting.
So I was thinking I'd have a play around with something I would wear if I got the chance to attend.
It should be an outfit that's summery, but not too short, tight or revealing.  With no shade maybe a high neckline and plenty of sun lotion!

A pair of shorts would be a good option with a cardigan or light jacket for cooler weather.  Jumpsuits are very fashionable this year and are totally acceptable for Wimbledon.

Watching tennis is not the place for extravagant fashion and most of the looks are simple and classic. You can add interest to a solid-coloured outfit with jewellery and accessories.
Sunglasses are so important for a sunny day, they will protect your eyes from the glare. A sun hat is also a fab option unless you’re sitting in Centre Court!

When it comes to footwear, it’s best to go for comfortable summer sandals with a block or wedge heel, even though you’ll probably be sitting down for most of the day. Stiletto heels can be difficult when you’re climbing the grandstand to find your seat and you may have a long walk from your transport to the event.

Here's my choice for a day at Wimbledon - if I ever get to go there.






White shorts for comfort, paired with a white beaded sleeveless top, and a blast of red from the flat shoes, red bag, cardigan and belt, all being a gentle reminder of the strawberries with cream that will be a tempting treat.




As it's not going to be me attending this year I'll make do with my consolation treat: Strawberries & cream, Ham & cucumber sandwiches with a delicious glass of prosecco .... Whilst watching the match on TV!

I'm glad you could join me today, hope you can pop back on Monday.

    And Ibiza! There's me doing one tiny element of a recent hen party, the cinema bit, and you've done a whole living-it-up trip to the party island! Party like a young thing in your 50s because maybe 15 years on you'll be joining me in the cinema!
