Monday - you here already?

Hello all, that was a pretty quick weekend, It flew by.  Did you get up to much?

As I mentioned yesterday first roast dinner in what seems like ages, so much beef left though, will be making a Chilli with the remaining piece.  I've got a great Delia recipe which is so easy and great for a Monday night when I don't really want to do much cooking.  I usually add some peppers into this recipe, to add colour and a bit of extra flavour into the pot.
There are so many other ingredients you can add to a basic Chilli blueprint, anything from peppers, cheese and various beans to chocolate or even vinegar!  What's your secret ingredient?  Please share with me!

Just popped over the Rachel the Hat Here She has got some amazing styles to show you all and It's given me a couple of ideas of items I 'need' OK, OK would like.he he...
Firstly I need some coloured jeans.  Rachel is sporting a gorgeous pair of coral coloured jeans, I have been thinking for ages of getting me some yellow jeans maybe, however seeing how stylish the coral looks I think I want them!  Oh I've had a great idea - maybe I could get both - lol!!!

Today's look neutral colours, just knocking about today, nothing in particular to do - that makes a change.
Matalan patterned ankle grazer trousers, look great with heels as well as flats, so I've picked these F & F bejewelled white flats, two seasons old and still going strong.  I've chosen this beautiful swing top, with crochet detailing on the arms and across the top.  Obviously picked out the cream in the trousers for a great match.  Nice and cool to wear - it's been a lovely bargain from Zara Basics last year, it's a dress up top for drinks at the local or casual shopping on a week day.  Hope you like this style, please let me know what you think.

Bye bye for today..X

  2. I love those pants! Patterned pants are favorites of mine! But I do also like a colored jean. I just bought blush and lavender skinny jeans for the spring, but now it's too darn hot that the thought of skinny jeans make me cringe! Although, I have some fabulous ideas with these pastel pants for the winter! So, I say go for it. Get yellow ones and coral ones! Why the heck not? Thanks so much for linking up! I hope to see you again this Friday!


    1. Thank you for your uplifting comments. You've got something nice to look forward to wearing with your lavender and blush skinnies. So nice when I do that - some how forget about them and find them just when I need something new to wear! Yes looking forward to linking up Friday..x

  3. Great neutral outfit! The pattern on the pants & the pretty details on the top add just the right interest!

    I have been thinking of getting some colored jeans, too! I also really love Rachel's, and I have seen some on some other blogs (can't remember where right now), so they have been "stuck" in my brain...
