A very excited MummaB greets you today.
I've finally jumped onto the Linkup bandwagon. Today I'm launching a brand new Linkup.
I know all of you are #chic&stylish, if you'd care to join in I can see all your latest looks, and so will everyone else!
Hopefully things run smoothly with no issues or problems, let's keep our fingers crossed for that then hey?
But before that why don't we take a look at today's outfit?
Isn't it funny how we have these steadfast rules regarding style in our minds? I have tried and tested outfits that work for me, and tend to keep them in my head in imaginary 'little boxes', for instance a playful tee shirt I would only pair with jeans or wear under a shirt, another 'contained' look is an elegant pleated skirt with heels and a stylish blouse or jumper. Why don't I ever mix the two up? I see all the young and daring bloggers go for it, but I'm just peeping out of my box thinking "that won't look right on me" well that's just in my head right?
I've styled this regal red velvet skirt twice since I received it for Christmas, both my outfits have been typical of the modest way I tend to dress. So anyway last week scrolling through IG I found a young fun, & lively outfit with a blue pleated skirt, then my daughter sent me a screen shot and suggested I try it out! Nervously I searched my wardrobe - nothing popped out, onto second daughter's wardrobe - the possibility of a cute stripy blouse, nah not really! Into youngest daughters room and she had the perfect top - but, will it fit me? Thank god for stretchy fabric because it did.
Here's my 3rd look with my red pleated skirt. Catch the first one here and last months here.
The stretchy tee has horizontal stripes across it featuring cream and shades of orange, loving the long arms that I pulled down over my hands. Topped off with my faithful jean jacket as the weather was fairly warm today - and yes warm enough for no tights!
The baseball trainers made an appearance to finish off my casual outfit.
tan court shoes, and swopping the blue clutch for my tan leather bag.
I felt chuffed with my young and trendy style and feel I might have been converted!
