Good morning from a chilly Mummab! Isn't the weather freezing (in the UK) - well not literally, but cold enough to just want to stay indoors drinking hot chocolate and watch films in front of a flickering fire. Shame I can't do that as there's work to be done!
With my skiing holiday just over a week away I'm in the throes of sorting my skiing gear - well I say "in the throes of" but really I'm just thinking about getting in the loft and sorting through. I bought new salopettes last year & need to check they still fit me. Things may need another wash, but all in all I'm positive everything will glide along nicely. 😉
Blogging has been slightly neglected for the past few days, I've been taking my princess to school as my daughter only recently gave birth to my grandson. The walk to school has been lovely, trying to catch up with a speedy 4 year old on a scooter was probably a funny sight - had me running after her nearly all the way, at least it will help with my skiing next week! It's been some years since I had to do this, and was somewhat weird to drop her to the same school her mum went to! Can I really be that old?
Today's outfit is based around these wide leg trousers. One of my all time favourite styles to wear and when I spotted these in the M & S outlet last week I just had to buy them, especially when they turned out to be £10!
What colour do you see these trousers as? I bought them as grey, but each time I look at them I can't decide if they're grey or taupe - what do you think? I suppose there's two colour ways I could go - doubling the outfit choices lol.
So the trousers are wide legs, I always find this a flattering style, but don't have nearly enough in my wardrobe. I've matched them with a pink jumper, pink boots and my pink boucle pea coat - brought together with my stylish scarf, it's got all the same colours in it adding a bit of pzazz to my outfit.
Thanks to the wind, I'm styling the wind sock look! It didn't help my hair style either, sometimes I just hate the local weather.
The only thing I don't care for about these pants is the fact you can see the outline of the pocket. I usually love anything with a handy pouch but might have to do a little DIY on these, anyway I wouldn't actually use these to hold anything, so they're somewhat redundant! I'll let you know what I decide!
With pockets galore, some with zips, two styles of handles one to use as a cross-over the other is shorter - perfect to sling over my shoulder or hold snugly in one hand.
Time for the #chicandstylish #linkup
Most favourite from last week is not one but three lovely ladies all styling one of my preferred looks from recent months - leopard print. Meet Jodie and her two mums Nancy and Charlotte who can all be found residing at Jodie's Touch of Style. How lucky they were to have a passer-by suggest this wonderful shot - it really does stand-out making a stunning photo don't you think?
