Morning dear bloggers.
Are you feeling the chill?
Yes me too, it got decidedly colder on Sunday, so hubby switched the heating on. After being away over night and waking up to horrendous wind and rain it was much appreciated when I walked through the door, in tee shirt and sandals! I'd been with my girls on a hen night. We went to a spa hotel on the coast for a day of pampering and a super evening meal. I had one hell of a luxurious facial, leaving my skin fresh and clean - It felt amazing. I've made a pact with myself to have one every month.
After an afternoon of fun, laughs, relaxation and chatter, I made my way up to the gorgeous room to get ready. Included in the stay was a three course meal comprising of chicken and ham hock terrine, roasted chicken supreme, tarragon mousse, potato gnocchi & charred baby courgettes with a tomato jus. This was rounded off with a cheeky lemon posset and an extra glass of prosecco, savoured all the more because I've been dieting! You have to treat yourself sometimes don't you?
Generally a quiet night with a couple of quizzes about the hen and a show & tell kind of game, giving the hen a gift that means something to both parties, either funny or meaningful. I was baffled with this one, but eventually remember the time she worked as a delivery driver for a local supermarket - her boss got a call to say she was stuck in a field whilst following the sat nav. She had to be towed out & I don't think the shopping got delivered. She never really lived that one down!! Lol.
Now the weather is so changeable Needing extra layers now that Autumn has arrived, so let me share this cute tunic jumper with you.
Isn't it nice to cocoon yourself in a snuggly, soft jumper? This is just how I felt when getting into this grey and white stripe beauty. I picked it up in Florence and Fred, knowing it would be a great addition to my AW wardrobe. Pairing it with white jeans on this occasion, but I reckon it will look fab with jeans, or leggings too.
Loving the front tie detail, great for hiding a wobbly tummy, especially when you can tie it as tight or loose as you like.
I kept the grey and white theme going with grey tie wedges and my grey jaeger bag. Just adding a floral necklace gives an interesting finish, from here it actually looks like a sweet little collar.
I'm thinking of adding this to my red velvet skirt, maybe tucked it, but will see how it looks - stay tuned for that one.
Time for the party to start, the #chicandstylish #linkup is ready and waiting.
From over 70 links last week, I'd like to share my favourite with you ...
Meet Jennie. I fell for her plain but striking mustard & white outfit as soon as I saw it! Love how Jennie has carried through the circle theme with her spicy ball earrings. The palazzo trousers in the colour of the season just punched their way through the screen. I'm searching for a similar pair so I can be a copy cat with this one! See the full post on Jennie's blog A Pocket full of Polka Dots.
