Hi there, ready to face another week?
Having had a rather different weekend from the normal, I'm looking forward to getting my week back on track - the reason being hubby has been away to Dublin, helping the Stag celebrate his last weekend of freedom as they say! You can catch where the hens went here!
It's like having my arm cut off not having hubby at home. The children were around some of the time, but it's just not the same as we do so much together. Missing him - an understatement!
When looking at other fantastic blogs I follow, I noticed more and more outfits that I'd love to wear & realised I could re-create many of them with clothes I already have in my possession, maybe having only to buy one or two extra pieces to complete a 'copy'!
I've decided that on the 3rd Thursday of each month I'll be featuring a Style Steal, copying another bloggers look.
First up has to be the delightful Catherine from Not dressed as lamb winner of the UK Blog Awards for fashion & beauty 2017.
She encourages women to wear what they want and look fabulous doing it. Winning many accolades for her high street picks and individual style, along with blog post featuring health, beauty and fitness issues.
Catherine's blog, is a go-to, up-to-date, informative site for the over 40's, & many people including me love to visit.
This outfit got me thinking ...
I had red linen trousers somewhere in the wardrobe along with my ever faithful cream sparkly baseball trainers I was half way there. The ace up my sleeve this dainty lace top all the way from Spain, on my earlier visit to L'Escala.
Having a double lace layer, see-through in places, with a discrete covered in section in just the right area. With a pleasing scalloped edge on both the sleeve and the hem, the exquisite detailing married with the cream colour makes this beauty timeless and functional, therefore it'll be winner with so many of my outfits in the future. Be prepared to see this darling again and again!
How about the cute flower pattern in the lace - isn't it pretty?
I took my black Osprey cross-over bag to complete my style copy - the only thing needed was a hat, well truth be told I don't own one. I've planned to get one, but haven't seen any I really like, so if you could use your own imagination I'll be very thankful. 😜
Esther Ruby took the photographs in a local play park. This a short drive away and the first time I've visited for about forty years! Needless to say it looks very different from what I remember.
This play park not only caters for young children but older youths too. When we arrived Esther made a bee line for the zip wire she spotted - having a little ride, enjoying every minute - shame no photos!
Not to be outdone MummaB had to get in one the act having a go too, except I couldn't get off it - literally!
We set about taking photos in the park, being careful not to include any kids!
Fortunately finishing just in time, because we were swarmed by a class of school children on a day trip - obviously letting off steam in the play area. They were everywhere and would definitely have been photobombing my shots! Ha ha.
Have you ever stolen a style? Would love to hear what yours would be.
Hope you'll join me next month to see who's style I've 'copied'.
So until Monday, thanks for stopping by.
Many thanks Esther Ruby for your super photos. X
