Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger for the over Fifties - What real women wear!

Monday 23 May 2016


Hello ladies.  How are you all this Monday morning?

Been off blogging for a few days.  Hopefully back to normal now.

Night out at friends on Saturday night, little Prosecco and a bit of BBQ for me the first of the season!
We tried an awesome Camembert & Rosemary loaf, which tasted devine.  You can check out the easy recipe Here please try this it certainly is easy to do and amazing to taste.
I went for comfort with grey straight legs trousers, and grey wide sleeve blouse with crochet detailing to it, this has a grey cami to wear underneath for extra warmth on this chilly Saturday night.  This together with my white/black dotty sling backs from M & S made the outfit comfy and just the job for the nippy evening outside.
Chatting and catching up with our good friends along with the fizz made for an excellent evening and lifted my some what sombre mood.

Sunday had me up and out the door early for a family Christening.  A small family affair, within the normal Sunday Morning Service at a local Church, afterwards a mini feast was enjoyed by the family, along with a couple of glasses of vino.  Family are so important and I'm so lucky to have mine around for happy and also sad times - they give me strength and support, along with laughter and enjoyment,

For said christening I chose a cream long cami dress, with crochet overdress in the same cream colour,  Cinched in at the waist with my Primark cream/gold stud belt, my classic cream blazer finished off my classic style.  Favourite sling back nude courts were worn to complete the look.
