Style Steal - Mustard culottes with cobalt blue.

Hiya, how's your weekend been?
Did you get up to much?
My weekend was filled with family, as usual.  Looked after the grandkids on Saturday morning with nearly all the family congregating at ours in the afternoon.  Saturday evening was a relaxed affair.  We had a fabulous night with my sister and brother-in-law, catching up over a few drinks followed by a cheeky curry!

Sometimes a colour combination just grabs you, picks you up, shakes & wakes up your imagination and leaves you wanting more!   Well that's just what happened when I saw this months stimulating Style Steal .  How striking are these colours together?  Vivid mustard with an equally striking cobalt blue … tempting your colour taste buds or what?

Joligrace - Storage cases for everything. #chicandstylish #LINKUP

You may remember a couple of weeks ago my internet was down due to a problem with my phone line, which resulted with no internet for NEARLY A WEEK!  Yes it was as bad as I thought It could be.  Luckily is wasn't a complete disaster because I had the chance to get lots of odd jobs done, one in particular I'd been putting off - sorting through my makeup collection.  That was were this beautiful Joligrace makeup case came to the rescue.
Having been asked to select something from their pretty range of bags, makeup cases and travel bags I settled on the obvious choice - yes a pink one!

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Joining the stripe brigade.

Hi there, thanks for joining me on the blog today.  Mummabstylish features my style, this is what this over fifty fashion blogger likes to wear.

Being such a huge fan of culottes & crops, I simple couldn't resist these beauts I picked up in H & M a couple of weeks ago.  Having already got three pairs in my wardrobe along with numerous culotte jumpsuits, I knew I wanted to be wearing them come the colder weather.  So with the weather becoming decidedly cooler over the past week I felt the time had come to share them.

Unseen, unheard but always near, 
still loved, still missed and held so dear"

Here's last weeks favourite from over sixty links.
Just when we thought we were all over yellow - Linda from A Labour of Life throws this little number into the mix and we're all musing over adding yellow into our outfits again!  Let's just take a minute to check out her lemon shoes - now doesn't that remind you of a cold Limoncello!

Now let's start linking up.

Black Lace with colourful accessories.

Hi there - hope August is going well for you.
We've been busy in the garden, trying to clear the weeds that have appeared.
It's hard work, especially with the hot weather we've been experiencing in the UK over the past few weeks, but better than working in the rain!  It's starting to look tidier already.  Hubby and I have finally agreed to get started on a little decking area outside the kitchen, it will tidy up an otherwise messy area and I can't wait to get going on it. I'm picturing me entertaining friends and family here, so with that in mind here's just what I'd wear for my first get together.

#Chicandstylish #Linkup

Hi there, welcome to my over fifty fashion blog.  My little space on the internet where I share my style, my thoughts and some of my life.  Thanks for stopping by - you make my day!
Unfortunately I'm been a victim of No Internet!!!  This has caused no end of problems and worries, hence my absence from blogging, visiting and commenting - not to mention, no phone, games station (for my son) or Netflix!!!

Style not Age - Not square with Gingham!

Hi lovelies.
Thanks for visiting today.  The Style not Age ladies are sharing their latest collection today.
Hilda's choice, which is rather an interesting one this month …
Not square with Gingham.
I've only recently jumped on the gingham bandwagon, therefore have only got two items in my wardrobe.  You may well remember seeing three ways with my gingham crops - which I absolutely love.  I also have a rather easy wearing cold shoulder top too!

Re-living Ibiza. #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello my friends.
Hope I find you well.

Seems like my holiday to Ibiza was years ago.  When in fact I've only been back a couple of weeks! Isn't is a shame how long we wait for holidays to arrive, then no sooner do they transpire than we are back home, back to work and back to normality - feeling like we've never been away!

My weeks holiday in Es Canar with the family was a knockout.  I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my time away.  The weather was amazing, the food - well the food was appealing, varied & plentiful, the drinks flowed and the company was brilliant.  All of this made even better upon the surprise arrival of my youngest daughter!

Style Steal - White Linen.

Hi there my lovelies - how are you all?
Thanks for joining me today, you're just in time for this month's Style Steal.  If you're not a regular visitor to my little blog let me explain what my Style Steal is.  Every month I try to emulate another bloggers outfit, sometimes a pretty good copy, other times I might just use the same colours with a different angle.

This month has proved rather a difficult one.  You see I've spotted plenty of pretty & stylish outfits, but they all seem to have components that were out of my grasp!  That was until I saw my delightful friend wearing a crisp cool pair of wide leg linen trouser with a dainty slip of a top.
I have had a pair of linen trousers hanging in the wardrobe for ….. well for years!  See when I wore them with my black and white Jaeger top.  My pretty floral top was bought for my recent holiday to Ibiza - blog to follow this week.
This was still too warm to wear so I switched to white shorts for the rest of the day.  Much cooler!  I'd wear this for an evening out with friends, it's such a relaxed look and the linen trousers can be worn with just about any top.
