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

Wednesday 10 August 2016


Hello Ladies,

How's the week going so far?

Today more gardening is on the cards.  Having been out for dinner ingredients already, I've just had time for youngest son ... aka David Bailey!! Shsss don't tell him to get some photos.  Actually so pleased with how they are looking so far, he's doing a fabulous job, need to get the others trained for when he's not around. Ha ha.

I've chosen my spring season long tunic top today.  It came from Apricot and you can read about it Here 
Wearing it with white skinnies from Matalan, I feel they lighten up the dark top, by way of picking out the cream butterflies - it gives the outfit a brighter feel. 
I picked out my shoes first and worked my way up, these pewter flat pumps with a bit of bling by way of some jewels, are past season from M and S,  find similar Here for £12.99.
I have to say these are not the most comfortable flats I own being rather narrow and pointed for my fat little feet, but they fit the outfit perfectly and I only needed to pop to the shops, any longer and my feet would have been really squashed.  All in the name of fashion lol!

Okay have you got any new season clothes yet?  Spotted some great colours in store yesterday.
Old classic colours such as red and navy blue looked stunning together as you would imagine.
Lots of olive green around which I love and can not wait to get started with buying some pieces.
I especially like the olive green peg style trousers I saw in New Look recently, so watch this space within the next month we shall see how that goes.
I also spotted some lovely suede boots in Debenhams, can't find them on line, but will endeavour to get a photo soon.
