H & M Jumper from Abu Dhabi #chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning lovelies.

Busy busy for Mummabstylish this week!
Hair appointment - to cover my grey, Christmas shopping, spin class, boring housework and a very important school Nativity play!  Rather excited to see my granddaughters first school performance.   Obviously my princess had the principle part - yes a very important ….. sheep.  Considering how shy she actually is that was quite a landmark for her and I couldn't be more proud.

Falling back on an old pair of trousers today, something floral and small.  I've been struggling with trousers in my wardrobe since losing weight with many of my lovely trews too big for me!  Not a bad thing I know, but now my choices are very limited!  So rummaging through my cupboards I found these that had been relegated to the back because the were slightly too small!  What joy to find they fit now, and dare I say are slightly too big!!  *Smug face emoji*  So what to pair with floral ankle trousers?



So …. what to wear with these flowery trews?  With a handful of choices at my disposal I opted for black, namely a jumper I bought in Abu Dhabi recently.  I like to return home with a tangible reminder of a wonderful holiday & this lucky jumper, along with a cute skirt (I'll share that in a few weeks - it's gorgeous) were my choice.  I'm not sure if you can see in these photos it has sweet little silver balls over the silky black turtle neck jumper.  It feels slinky and soft to the skin although felt quite cold so I wore a little cami top underneath.  Covered in little beads it's quite a statement piece, but a welcomed addition to an otherwise plain jumper.  Available online for just under £35.  Today I picked out cerise pink to accent the flowers.  Certainly bought a bit of colour to my day, along with the welcomed sunshine.





Another borrowed piece from my daughter, this M & S bag is right on trend - loving the darling circular handle.


With the fashion scene covered in animal print at the moment, I think my floral combination makes an acceptable change don't you think?

#Chicandstylish time, the #linkup is now live!


Do you want to know who's favourite from last week?
Camel and grey together, I fell for Cheryl's outfit big time.  What's not to like with two neutral colours blending so well, topped off with white jeans - my favourite!  Stop by for more of her looks over on Cheryl Shops, I really need to try this style for myself - one for those cold, but dry British days I think.

  4. Congratulations on your weight loss! It's challenging to have more limited clothing choices but exciting when you can shop your closet and find all kinds of things that you couldn't wear before! These floral pants looks beautiful for winter!

  6. Jacqui, I love this floral look for winter. So bright and cheery against the black background and the bright scarf is the perfect addition! And how wonderful that your granddaughter had the very important role as a sheep...one cannot possibly have a manger seen with the sheep, so definitely essential! I am sure you are very proud! So cute.

  19. Honey you look fabulous at the moment - spin class or dieting - it's all working! The trousers are a brilliant pep up for a winter's day too and of course black is the perfect partner for these.
    I remember when I lost weight a few years ago - that was the time I started buying from charity shops as I couldn't afford to buy a completely new wardrobe from scratch. I lost about 3 stone and went down several dress sizes so it all had to go. My shopping habits changed for the better though, as second hand can be such fun and makes your money go further too!
