Lilla Rose Giveaway - #chicandstylish #linkup

Hi there!  How's your short week going?
I love that bank holidays mean a shorter working week - it means I have my family around me for longer.
Did you do anything exciting?  I'd love to hear what it was.
We were still working in the garden on Saturday, clearing and sorting - but the mind hasn't caught up with the fact that I'm over fifty and sets a pace for a twenty year old!  Quickly reminded on the following days by plenty of aches and pains!  Sunday had us celebrating with our best friends for their 30th wedding anniversary - a night out with drinks and a lovely meal in a fairly local hotel.  Again the mind still thinks I'm a teenager with the amount of drinks and the late night I had - resulting in a slow day on Monday.  Getting home to have nearly all the family round for a long waited and much anticipated roast dinner.  Don't get me wrong I love having BBQ's, lazy dinners or takeaways on a Sunday, but it's so nice to have a full all-bells-and-whistles family roast dinner - followed by relaxing snoozing on the sofa! …. heaven.

Item marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.

Talking of relaxing …

Style not Age - Wild about Animal Print.

Morning all.  How was your past week?
Nearing the end of August now, and it's definitely starting to feel like Autumn/fall is just around the corner with slightly cooler mornings and mushrooms popping up in the garden!

This month the ladies of the Style not Age collective are going wild - Wild about Animal Print!
Emma has bestowed the never-go-out-of-fashion element for our latest challenge, and rather happy I was with this task.  I think animal print is rather like Marmite - you either love it or hate it!
Having come a long way since the days of Coronation Street barmaid Bet Lynch donning leopard print "anything" - with the arrival of the more subtle prints such as zebra, giraffe & snakeskin.

As you may already know I love wearing dresses, and tend to wear them a lot.  So it's nice to find a dress that can be transformed from casual to dressy just by adding different appendages.  For this challenge I opted for heels, but fancy trying baseball pumps and a jumper for a basic relaxed feel.

Again with the stripes! #chicandstylish #linkup

Morning.  Thanks for stopping over.
Come see what this over fifty fashion blogger likes to wear.
After wearing stripes recently by way of some cool ankle trousers I couldn't wait to show off another example of this trendy fashion.  Are you lining up to add this look to your outfits?

With September and Autumn/Fall fast approaching, I'm just about letting warmer outfits filter into my mind.  We can easily let our Summer wear merge into looks for the next season by simply adding another layer.  A tee shirt and cropped jeans needs only a shirt added to turn summer cool into Autumn cosy.

Style Steal - Mustard culottes with cobalt blue.

Hiya, how's your weekend been?
Did you get up to much?
My weekend was filled with family, as usual.  Looked after the grandkids on Saturday morning with nearly all the family congregating at ours in the afternoon.  Saturday evening was a relaxed affair.  We had a fabulous night with my sister and brother-in-law, catching up over a few drinks followed by a cheeky curry!

Sometimes a colour combination just grabs you, picks you up, shakes & wakes up your imagination and leaves you wanting more!   Well that's just what happened when I saw this months stimulating Style Steal .  How striking are these colours together?  Vivid mustard with an equally striking cobalt blue … tempting your colour taste buds or what?

Joligrace - Storage cases for everything. #chicandstylish #LINKUP

You may remember a couple of weeks ago my internet was down due to a problem with my phone line, which resulted with no internet for NEARLY A WEEK!  Yes it was as bad as I thought It could be.  Luckily is wasn't a complete disaster because I had the chance to get lots of odd jobs done, one in particular I'd been putting off - sorting through my makeup collection.  That was were this beautiful Joligrace makeup case came to the rescue.
Having been asked to select something from their pretty range of bags, makeup cases and travel bags I settled on the obvious choice - yes a pink one!

Joining the stripe brigade.

Hi there, thanks for joining me on the blog today.  Mummabstylish features my style, this is what this over fifty fashion blogger likes to wear.

Being such a huge fan of culottes & crops, I simple couldn't resist these beauts I picked up in H & M a couple of weeks ago.  Having already got three pairs in my wardrobe along with numerous culotte jumpsuits, I knew I wanted to be wearing them come the colder weather.  So with the weather becoming decidedly cooler over the past week I felt the time had come to share them.

#Chicandstylish #LINKUP


Hope you are all enjoying August and some fine weather.
Another short and sweet post this week.  I have had a terrible week with awful news so will be out of action for a few days.
I do hope you understand, but would love you to join in with the #chicandstylish #linkup anyway.

"Those we love don't go away,
 they walk beside us everyday.  
Unseen, unheard but always near, 
still loved, still missed and held so dear"

Black Lace with colourful accessories.

Hi there - hope August is going well for you.
We've been busy in the garden, trying to clear the weeds that have appeared.
It's hard work, especially with the hot weather we've been experiencing in the UK over the past few weeks, but better than working in the rain!  It's starting to look tidier already.  Hubby and I have finally agreed to get started on a little decking area outside the kitchen, it will tidy up an otherwise messy area and I can't wait to get going on it. I'm picturing me entertaining friends and family here, so with that in mind here's just what I'd wear for my first get together.

#Chicandstylish #Linkup

Hi there, welcome to my over fifty fashion blog.  My little space on the internet where I share my style, my thoughts and some of my life.  Thanks for stopping by - you make my day!
Unfortunately I'm been a victim of No Internet!!!  This has caused no end of problems and worries, hence my absence from blogging, visiting and commenting - not to mention, no phone, games station (for my son) or Netflix!!!
