My weekend antics and #wiw

Hi there, how are you all my lovely over fifty blogging friends?
Busy weekend for Mummab!  Meeting a friend for cake and a cuppa on Saturday with an exhilarating walk along the seafront to work it off!  My little town was absolutely buzzing with people everywhere.  It seemed like a summers day especially with the delightfully warm wind blowing off the sea.  People were sunbathing on the beach, although I didn't see any swimsuits.  Ideal weather for flying kites, & I saw a couple of bright flyers swooping and soring high on the breeze.
Stopping in the aptly named Windy Corner Café for an acceptably large piece of Lemon Drizzle and Polenta cake - naughty but oh so nice! Washed down with plenty of tea.  Nice to catch up with a friend like this and it was such a treat because it's not something I'd normally do on a Saturday!
You'll never guess what I did on Saturday night!  It was Esther Ruby's birthday and she had a silent disco!  Yes you heard right (sorry - excuse the pun!) a silent disco.  With personal headphones and a choice of three music channels to dance the night away!  I did think I'd end up in the front room listening to the juke box with the oldies, but had a really fun time dancing and singing all night!  When a new song came through there was lots of pointing, mouthing and pulling one earphone off to shout "switch sides" "hey this is a good one" or "I love this one". Although it was hilarious when I took the earphones off and I could hear everyone 'humming' and 'singing' to their own personal songs! Out of tune & drone came to mind - ha ha ha!



Here's what I decided to wear.  Because of the unexpectedly warm weather on Saturday night I chose to wear a sleeveless top over some black jeans.  I picked up some boots in Florence and Fred (I'll show these in the next few weeks) on Friday and couldn't wait to wear them, super comfy soles meant I could and did dance all night!  These aren't in the photos because I hadn't bought them when they were taken.  The tassel ankle boots look great too so I could have worn them, but they aren't quite so great on my feet!

I haven't fancied wearing this swing top very much, one reason is that it has felt a little tight, so having lost a little weight it now fits me perfectly.  I like the splashes of blue and lime green over a black background, lightening and brightening an otherwise bland tunic. Do you like the different length hem? I love how it's longer at the back, giving good coverage on the rear - lol.



Again my jean jacket came to the rescue, topping off my look with ease.  See the many other outfits I've worn it with over a white dresspaired with an orange dress & casually with a black jumpsuit.








Thanks lovelies for visiting today - catch you again bright and early on Thursday when I'll be sharing my final pick from Eva Trends.
Bye for now. X

  3. A silent disco sounds fun - would be great for a wedding reception when you have several different generations who all want their own music! Nice outfit Jacqui, your denim jacket adds a bit of edge as do the uneven hems!

  5. All the weekend activities sound fun, I guess you can regulate the sound level too on that silent disco? That would be a great way for oldies to disco still, as I can't deal with too many decibels these days. Nice outfit, is the top sleeved?
    Hugs, x.
