Another way with tan trousers.


Hi there, hope all is well with you.

Well the weather is getting cooler, kids have returned to school (not Mine Obviously), Christmas cards are in the shops (well some of them) and that can only mean one thing .....
No not Autumn arriving!  I mean it's time for Strictly Come Dancing to return to our Saturday night viewing - hurrah. X
I've had a wonderful weekend - and my Saturday nights are seriously back on track - Yay!  Strictly Come Dancing has returned with all the glitz, glamour and spray tans you could want - so along with a take-out curry and bottle of wine it's making my Saturday nights very hard to do anything else other than sit on the sofa and watch telly! Exciting night for an over fifty fashion blogger eh??

Isn't it great when you find a garment that you know will be a wardrobe staple?  Something that's always there to fall back on when you've run out of options.  I've got just that with these peg style tan trousers I bought a few weeks ago.  Already getting my monies worth from this £15 pair of trousers, I've worn them about five times already, value for money I'd say! 
Here's two other colours I've worn them with already - catch them here and here.

Tan and pink are a good match I think, confirming this only too well was the outfit I wore the other day.
Having found this flattering half blouson effect blouse in Primark a few seasons ago.  I had this top in mind when I bought these trousers - I thought they'd go well together, and go well they have!
I paired my tan block healed courts shoes with this outfit, along with my faux suede clutch bag.  A cream bag goes with just about everything.  I'm sure every over fifty lady has at least one in her bag collection!








We took photos in a local boat yard, having only recently found out about this place.  However It makes a fabulous backdrop for photos.  Are there places near where you live that you've never ever been too and suddenly find out about them?




Trousers from Apricot
Blouse from Primark
Shoes from Debenhams.


Glad you could pop over today, I do hope you'll stop by again.

Hugs to Esther Ruby for taking today's photos.

If you'd like to see the next 5Over50 challenge there'll be a new one on Monday.  Hope you can visit my blog to see what we're styling.

Cheerio for now... X

  1. I need to buy more trousers for the winter and love the style and colour of yours. I would never have considered tan before

  3. I love the colour combo of the pastel pink with the tan - definitely a winning outfit! I like when that happens, when I see an outfit in my head when I buy something and it turns out just as perfect as I hoped it would! :)

    Hope you had a great weekend :)

  4. Tan and pink is a pretty combo! You found a fun place for a photo shoot Jacqui. Part of the fun of blogging is finding interesting backdrops. Always on the lookout and I can't help seeing a spot and thinking, "That would make a fantastic backdrop!" There are great places to discover without going far.

    We're having a heatwave here in Ontario, it's beach weather. Hot and humid but I don't mind, autumn can wait!

  7. Pink is such an underrated colour, it goes with so many colours. But high on my list is pairing it with brown, like you've done; I have loved the combo since I saw Hayley Mills wear it when I was 12!
    Great location, as alwas. Hugs x.
