Re-visiting an old colour combination - Mustard and Navy.

Morning to you all,

Hope your weekend went well, and for fellow bloggers in the UK it wasn't too blustery!  I think Storm Angus blew a few cobwebs away over the past couple of days.  Sending out best wishes to anyone who's suffered from the awful floods in Britain too.

I managed to blow a few cobwebs away at the weekend too.  Saturdays are normally spent relaxing at home watching my favourite telly shows and having a take away, however not the case for last Saturday I had a prior arrangement - afternoon tea!
Celebrating a friends birthday at a local hotel. Some six of us enjoyed a lovely afternoon cream tea, complete with a cheeky bottle of prosecco (or two - lol).
The tea was amazing, but I wish the same could be said about the service!  Leaving us waiting much longer than we really should have been, and being rather haphazardly late with the arrival of accompanying milk, jam and cream for the afternoon tea.  I'm thinking they were in need of a decent manager to guild them in the right direction!

In time we parted company with three of the party  who made their way home, leaving me and two friends waiting for our husbands to arrive in town - with the rain pouring down outside there was only one thing to do - have another bottle of prosecco of course!
Meeting up with the boys in a local pub (thank heaven for scarfs) before making our way to one of my favourite restaurants for an Italian meal.  After eating the large afternoon tea, I opted for a light option having chicken and parma ham in a white wine served with some mouth watering spinach,  I'm not sure quite how they cook it, but it does taste divine.  Sharing a bottle of Syrah red wine, we ate, talked, laughed and reminisced about our previous years weekend break to Lake Como, only to find out it was our waiters family home - paying homage to the stunning Italian lake we stayed on, creating this gorgeous dessert for us, stunning!

Fabulous roast beef dinner for ten on Sunday - cooking a fabulous fore rib of beef with all the trimmings, I was so full up I can honestly say I only ate dinner on Monday.

Sharing today a throw back look of an outfit I wore much earlier on in the year. I really think mustard and navy go well  together so along with these colours and my recent gifted navy shoe boots from Lotus Shoes see my previous post here,
Navy always looks fabulous with mustard, so adding this Chanel style scarf in a brighter Persian blue it created a classic look, so along with the jeans it became a casual look. Perfect for an over 50 year old to potter around in and still look stylish.
I hope you agree with me, you can wear your jeans and still look well presented.

Shoe boots with jeans are a perfect combination for Autumn, and Lotus Shoes have got a stunning collection just waiting for you. 
Do you love how I've scattered the leaves to enhance the setting - lol, I can thank Storm Angus for that!

Have a fabulous day ladies, I'll be catching up with you tomorrow.

Linking up with Garay Treasures.

Bye. X
