This over fifty fashion blogger was super busy as usual, house-warming party for my son and his finacee on Friday evening. Still not got my head around the fact that he's moved on! But it's a fact of life that has to be faced at some time or other, but have still got three off-spring at home, & they keep me on my toes. It has to be said that it will now be quality time spent together with the two new homers, so that will be my bonus!
Saturday was a lively evening spent with our besties. Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra were entertaining us at a local pub!! 😉😏 - and very good they were too, makes a change to go out and have a sing-a-long to tunes I know, ha ha!
Sunday was spent lunching with friends - with a surprise proposal, a wonderful surprise for most of us there.
Now Monday has arrived and there's still another celebration to enjoy - my sister's birthday drinks, so I'll be looking forward to the relaxed ending of a hectic weekend & busy Monday!
Last week on my shopping trip with the girls, you might remember I didn't return with a dress! I did however, purchase my first AW garment! Yay or shush will you be shouting at me?
Well with the bloomin' awful rainy weather we've been having in the UK over the past couple of weeks I'll be needing more than a pair of trousers for Autumn, more like a rain mac and wellies! psst ... I've entered a competition for a pair of Hunters, so fingers crossed I might just win! 🤞
Let's talk my purchase then. Paperbag chino trousers seem to be everywhere at the moment, and when I saw these tan brown beauties I jumped at them, fitting superbly I bought them instantly. Having been reduced from £32, these only set me back £15! I'm checking to see if they're available in any other colours too. (they aren't!)
Here's my offerings for today, running late and taking my owns shots today, so forgive me on both counts - I've posted the best of the best and deleted many! Tan obviously matches perfectly with cream, so when I saw this silky little blouse in the F & F sale I popped it into my shopping basket. For £4 it was cheaper than my bottle of prosecco!
A flattering cap sleeve to cover the top of my arm - better for transition into cooler weather. This blouse will still look just as cute with a jacket or cardigan covering it.
I picked out these silk beads that my Dad bought back from Australia - I've had them many years and they get to see the light of day once in a while when they fit beautifully into an outfit. Today was their special day this year!
I'm wearing another birthday present today - the first time they've been on my feet, and I have to admit I'd forgotten I'd got them!
These mules have a back strap with elastic for a comfy fit, a cute round heel that not only looks good but feels safe. I adore the cream soft suede, however I am worried about getting them marked, I'll be buying some spray protector for them.
But now they've been debuted, they'll be on my feet plenty of times now.
I've included this super turquoise scarf and meant to tie it round my bag - too busy worrying about the photos - (note to self) need more practice at taking my own shots!
How do you like this colour mix? Tan and a delicate cream with a blast of turquoise. Brings the outfit to life don't you think?
Thanks for stopping over today, hope you like this colour combination. I'm looking forward to wearing and styling these chinos again - lots of ideas for the Autumn, so I'd love you to pop back again.
Bye for now X
