H & M Jumper from Abu Dhabi #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning lovelies.

Busy busy for Mummabstylish this week!
Hair appointment - to cover my grey, Christmas shopping, spin class, boring housework and a very important school Nativity play!  Rather excited to see my granddaughters first school performance.   Obviously my princess had the principle part - yes a very important ….. sheep.  Considering how shy she actually is that was quite a landmark for her and I couldn't be more proud.

Falling back on an old pair of trousers today, something floral and small.  I've been struggling with trousers in my wardrobe since losing weight with many of my lovely trews too big for me!  Not a bad thing I know, but now my choices are very limited!  So rummaging through my cupboards I found these that had been relegated to the back because the were slightly too small!  What joy to find they fit now, and dare I say are slightly too big!!  *Smug face emoji*  So what to pair with floral ankle trousers?

Check trousers from Krisp.

Hiya, how are you over fifty bloggers doing?
How's your Christmas shopping going?  Are you an 'I've got everything already' or 'I'm leaving it until Christmas Eve' person?  Me... I'm somewhere in between!  I've bought a few pieces already, but still have a mountain of presents to decide on, buy and wrap, although I'm making a concerted effort to get most of them done this week, I hate struggling nearer the time and vow every year not to put myself through a difficult run up to the festive period.  I'll keep you posted how I get on!

Tartan, check or plaid, whatever you call it, it's in fashion!  Everyone is wearing it in some form or another!  So I was pleased to receive these grey check trousers from Krisp recently.

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

Joules Scarf GIVEAWAY #chicandstylish #linkup

Good morning, how's it going in over fifty blogging land?  I'm really chuffed you've stopped by today as I've got something special to share and you all have a chance to win it in the GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

I've was out nearly all day yesterday!  Got quite a few pressies, so now need to enlist the help of a good wrapper .. hint, hint! (in case hubby is reading) he's rather good at singing too - lol!  😂
Still plenty to buy, but I'm getting there slowly but surely.  Just need to ask, when shopping for others, does anyone else see mountains of clothes and accessories in the shops that would be great presents for themselves?  Why does that happen?  When I'm looking for me, I never see anything!!  I wanted so much ... a bag, a skirt, a coat, a jacket, numerous pairs of shoes and a couple of dresses - the only thing to do is take lots of photos and leave lots of clues laying around the house. 😉

Denim Shirt over Leopard Print Skirt .

Morning to you all and hope you've had a great weekend!

Christmas has definitely started in Mummab's household - we put our Christmas decorations up and how fun & festive they look.  I just love seeing all the decorated trees, baubles and lights throughout the house.  We've had to buy more lights to hang outside as our old ones were … old and broken!  Along with these I'm buying a couple of Christmas trees to place either side of my front door.  Since we tidied it up in the summer there's a space to display them.   I go all gooey eyed when I see the decs up, who else likes to turn the main lights off and look at the tree through squinty eyes - or is it just me?

I thought I'd show another of my pieces from Krisp Clothing today.  I received this leopard print stretchy pencil skirt* & after searching through Pinterest for a few ideas, came up with this one.

Messages in Metal - #chicandstylish #linkup

Good morning lovely fashion bloggers.
How are you all?

I'm not sure I'm liking these dark evenings, just makes me want to wrap up on the sofa, watching telly whilst eating soups and stews with hot drinks - ohhh a hot toddy - now that sounds like a plan. 😉

With Christmas looming are you having trouble finding 'the right' present for someone special?  I've found just what you might like with this cute online shop.  Messages in Metal recently contacted me to ask if I'd like to share their unusual and meaningful jewellery with you.  Loving jewellery as I do, I couldn't wait to check out their site and pick something.

Keen as Mustard - Style not Age Fashion Collective.

Hi there, how are you all.
This over fifty fashion blogger is back to reality with a big, cold, damp bump!  I almost, yes I did say almost, wish I'd not been away to a hot & sunny destination.  Doesn't is always feel even colder when you take a sunny holiday in cooler seasons?  My heating is most definitely on as are my socks and gloves!

The latest challenge fell into the hands of Hilda, I'd love you to read on to find out how the ladies from the Style not Age collective attacked November's challenge 'Keen as Mustard'.
Are you keen on the latest colour trend?  Yes I'm talking about firery amber yellow.  I've always liked this colour, but only in recent years worn it.  It actually mixes well with so many other shades, I've paired it with cobalt blue not once or twice but three times, also covered in little flowers & an old faithful jacket.

The hot spicy colours are taking centre stage in the fashion industry for AW, and mixed together make for hot combinations.  I'm seeing mustard, shades of red & mahogany, sienna red and russet, all topped off with brown or tan accessories......

Please vote for Mummabstylish in the UK Blog Awards + #chicandstylish #linkup

Good morning.
This over fifty blogger is back home, back to reality and looking forward to catching up on all your wonderful blogs.
I have to say I'm not impressed with this weather - coming from hot and sunny Abu Dhabi it's been a shock to the system, along with the fact that my hotel service is being rather lazy!!! (no buffet breakfast or waiter service this morning!).  I'll be posting all about my trip to the UAE so do look out for it in the next few weeks.

Style Steal - Another piece from Krisp Clothing.

Morning, how's life for you over fifty bloggers?
I'm still away on my holiday so have posted this in advance.  This month's Style Steal is just a little bit different, this month I'm not actually copying a specific outfit, but emulating someone's classic & elegant mode of dress - can you guess who its is?

Do you remember I was lucky enough to receive this super jacket a few weeks ago & along with that I also picked this Pussy Bow Blouse* from Krisp Basics collection.

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

My timeless outfit is full of classic pieces, all in neutral shades of cream, with a punch of black trim to keep everything in order.

Jeans, Stripy Tee and Jacket - #chicandstylish #linkup

Hi there - how are you?
Right now I'm getting acquainted with my hotel in Abu Dhabi, relaxing with a drink or two and chatting with friends.  Sorry if I'm making you jealous, I'll try not to rub it in.
Do stop back in the next few weeks I'll be sharing my experience with you.
But back to the matter in hand, my over fifty style ideas.

I seemed to have slipped back into my old ways with this outfit.  I had a hard and fast rule of three-colour-styling before I started blogging, but have tried hard wanted to get to grips with more noticeable ensembles … Alas not today!  You see old habits die hard, and I still think plenty of my styles look bloody great!

Okay, okay I know what you're saying - it isn't even in my three-colour-rule book it's more like two! But I really like the basic jeans and tee shirt style, and to be fair I'm wearing ivory boots so technically that counts as three tones right? - lol 😂
