Good Morning friends.
How's it going?
What a dismal day yesterday was, so a quick visit into town was on the cards for me. Yay, I managed to dodge the rain.
I don't know about you but stores seem to change their fashion collections quicker than they ever have before. One week you spot something, the next time you shop it's gone and no sign of it on the Internet for some items either! So the old saying of 'get it before it's gone' rings true now more than ever.
That being said isn't it nice to enjoy new colours and ideas more frequently?
So brightening up my dismal rainy day yesterday was eyeing some new colours I'd not thought about before. The likes of Deep forest green silk blouses with gorgeous ruffles running down the sides, a pretty pale lilac slinky trumpet sleeve blouse (personal favourite) lime green velour tops and a petrol blue dress, all making excellent additions in any wardrobe especially an over 50 fashion blogger.
Try wearing the forest green with blue trousers, the petrol blue dress over a t shirt and leggings or the lilac blouse under a grey sleeveless dress. You CAN have fun mixing and matching.
Give one of these colours a go and see what fun YOU can have matching it to items already in your closet.

Going along with the theme of matching a fresh colour choice to your closet to see how it can be styled, yesterday I did just that...
I spotted this pink jumper on special offer in H and M, how can you go wrong with a ten pound jumper? I know I've got umpteen necklaces and even more scarfs that will all be queueing to get a look in on the act of compiling a stylish outfit for a bargain price.
Try to think outside the box just literally throwing items together on the bed to see if they work, add in a necklace or bracelet to see if it blends or pops. Both work equally well for different outfits and occasions, it's just a case of seeing what you like. Remember we are all different so no one is right or wrong - what works for one person may not for another!
Pale pink making a subtle statement along side black and white trousers, these are previous season from Florence and Fred, black and white are a great staple buy for trousers and are everywhere in the stores now, grab a pair and you'll find they can fit into so many colour arrangements - and you'll have fun finding them.
Now in recent years I would probably have opted for a plain black scarf, but no! Not now I'm spreading my wings and being a bit daring - I'm mixing in another pattern!! Oh blimey some of your advice (other bloggers that is) is starting to sink in!
The scarf in question is a cheapie from Primark. I recommend you'll find at least two or three in Primark that will match items in your wardrobe, jazzing up a plain, boring outfit.
Check out this cuff detail, I'm loving how it hangs like an undone cuff, revealing a stunning sparkly beaded bracelet. These little details add so much to the overall look - making a plain jumper a real snazzy statement.
So what do you think of my outfit? Have you have any bargains recently that have made many stunning outfits? I love to hear from you if you have.
Until the next post .... Bye, bye X
