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

Wednesday 7 September 2016

Workout Wednesday.

What are you up to on this first Wednesday in September?
Like you I'm wondering what the weather will be bringing into the 'what shall I wear' equation.
Firstly though I'm actually participating in not only one but two, yes two keep fit classes!!  Having not been in ages I know this is going to be difficult.  The hardest class will be spin/cycle, really it has been more years than I care to remember when I attended these workouts! 
Dripping with sweat with a face resembling an inflated tomato such a good look, such a unfit look!
Straight after I'll be joining the ladies in a class far more relaxed! ... Pilates.  That's going to hurt tomorrow.  Oh well as they say "no pain, no gain".

Waving my youngest daughter off today as she departs for a festival - a working festival.  You commit to work at two festivals and pay a deposit of your ticket price, if you turn up, do your allotted hours, you get a refund on your ticket!  Such a great way to enjoy the festivals, have staff quarters and not have to pay the huge sum for a ticket - blimin good idea.

I've got another list going for items that I need/want in my wardrobe, you know how it is - some things you just buy on a whim - stunning coat or jacket, others you just need - basic T shirts and underwear, and then there's the section for items that will complete loads of different looks with pieces you already own.  Here's mine:

Snakeskin ankle boots.
Black jacket.
Animal print belt.
Blue bag.
Culottes either navy or rust/red.

Long black boots.  (Having wide calves I struggle to get boots wide enough).

Whilst browsing the magazines, I spotted this beauty.  From Matalan at only £16, lovely black neck tie that's so 'in' for the time being, and the darling frilly cuffs make this so feminine. I think I'll be a cute little number to pair with jeans, fitted skirt or black trousers.
Reminds me of the 80's and the 'new romantics style'.
You like yes or no?

Have a great day.  Wish me luck for my classes!  I'll be back tomorrow, even if I can't move any other part of my body, I'm sure my fingers will work. ;-O

  1. I'm loving all the ruffles and fluted sleeves out there atm. Did you buy? I hope your not aching too much brave lady x

  2. Yes cute aren't they. I couldn't find it in store, but then found a similar one in Tu at Sainsburys! Haven't tried it on yet, so will have to see how it fits and looks. Keep fit class went well, and I've booked for next Wednesday!.x
