Feeling fresh in Krisp Clothing #chicandstylish #linkup

Hi there lovelies, how are you all?
I'm getting rather excited, you see next week I'm off on holiday to Abu Dhabi!!  Yes I can't wait.  I have to admit, I've already started packing my suitcase!  When I was younger I always started packing weeks before actually going away, but since having the children that's normally been left to the last minute, although fortunately never (except once) have I left anything at home!  So I've worked out what dresses I'm taking with me, and all my swimwear has been set aside along with what sandals I'm taking, the only item I need to get is a long dress to wear to and from the beach - not much chance of finding one in the shops, so I'll be checking out what's available online, otherwise I'll just have to go shopping when I'm away - shame! 😉
Okay back to today as I'm still a few days away from escaping this Autumnal weather!
I was recently contacted by Krisp Clothing, & from their exciting collection of fashion garments I was asked to select a few pieces - this cute jacket caught my eye immediately.  Check/plaid pieces are everywhere this season, so it felt right to include this in my top pick!

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

This check jacket* feels amazing!  The material is suedette, with a slight stretch, therefore is very smooth & soft to touch.  With two colourways to pick from I opted for charcoal, but the pink was just as pretty. Now I know you're surprised I didn't go for the pink one, but I felt charcoal would be better for matching throughout AW.  There's any number of colours that could be paired with it, such as green or blue for starters.   What do you think?  Now reduced in price to just under £23!! Maybe buy two colours. 😄

I've worn it over a pale mink roll neck jumper, also choosing white jeans to pick out the white check detail.  Isn't this just right for a stroll through the shops and a catch up lunch with friends?  Easy to wear and just as easy to look great in.

A neutral jacket calls for muted bag and boots, so this is where my blush pointed toe boots and lotus bag came in handy.  Both have complimented so many of my outfits since I took ownership.

The double breasted jacket has a stylish but formal peak lapel & a tie belt which I felt looked super fastened at the back.  But my favourite addition has got to be the pockets, you all know how much I like pockets on clothes, these are fabulous for car keys which I can never find in my bag - "over fifty memory problems" - lol!

Time to party... it's #chicandstylish #linkup time.

Who's favourite from last week?  Fonda from Savvy Southern Chic wowed us with her moto jacket, check trousers and fabulous Bakerboy cap.  A little different from what you'd normally find her wearing, but I think she looks fabulous don't you?   Please do pop over and checkout her blog.

  21. Ohh, enjoy your fabulous trip! Yes, it is so much harder to prepare and pack for a trip after having kids. Even if it is a trip we're not taking them on, it's still just hard to find the time in-between all their activities, etc. I hope you have a great time! I just love this plaid jacket on you and that striking necklace! Love the booties, too!
