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

Saturday 20 August 2016

Good morning Saturday.

Yay it's the Saturday, don't you just love the weekend?

It's been rather quiet in my household this past week with middle and youngest daughter away.  That will all change on Monday as they return with loads of stories, brown and sun burnt bodies and plenty of washing!
I'm so very lucky to have five children who are not only my precious offspring, but my friends too!
We are fortunate enough to get on (most of the time) and nearly always have a laugh at some point in the day.  (More often than not at my expense!)

OK, back to my outfit I'm sharing with you all today.

Again, as so often the case this choice is featuring a item from Matalan , the sale to be exact.  Costing a mere £3!!!  I figured this would be a good choice for the transitional period and being navy, one of the colours I've seen recently, it would find a niche in my wardrobe staples for Autumn.  I thinking pairing with red, navy, white, pink, mustard ... the list goes on, you get the gist!

Today, however, I've chosen beige chino ankle grazer trousers, these are from Principles a couple of seasons ago, and are pretty much a staple in my wardrobe.  You can never go wrong with a beige pair of trousers, although I try to  wear with a brighter colour to liven up what could be a dowdy outfit.

So this sleeveless top made of viscose mix, is a longer line jumper with turtle collar, it's very flattering over the my bottom and top of legs area.  I plan to wear it layered over a blouse or plain long sleeve t shirt in the cooler months for a warmer feel.
I'm wearing with a beautiful necklace my bestie bought me a couple of years ago.  With the blue and turquoise tones a brilliant match for navy.   This has a tie effect at the neck and with the current trend for chokers I thought it would be an ideal choice for the neckline - I think you'll agree it is!

I've borrowed middle daughters' mini handbag for the photo, being the only nude bag I could find, a nude colour bag and also a navy blue bag is on my list of items that are needed to complete many outfits, so I'm on the look out for one!  TK Maxx here I come!

Have a great day ladies's been nice 'chatting'. X

  1. Such a nice color combo. I love your pants and shoes, and the necklace is so interesting!

    1. Thanks Amy, I'm really starting to think outside the box with colour matches, an this time last year would never have put this together! Thanks to blogging I'm opening up to different ideas.

  2. Beige is my all time favourite colour. It goes with everything. My white bag was stolen at Tesco the other day ! So I will be on the lookout for a new white one too. And T K Max is a great place to start x

    1. Mine too Laurie, but I do try to brighten it now-a-days. Oh how awful for you, there's some horrible people out there! I did see a fab bag in the outlet from Fiorelli, however is was reduced to £105! Tk Maxx will probs be my first port of call... lol.x

  3. I do think that necklace makes the outfit sparkle and shine!! Love it!
