Yay - I've got this in a smaller size!

Morning my friends.
How are you all today?
Been hunting through the wardrobe recently and found one of my most favourite pieces hiding at the back, well it got pushed there basically because it was too big!  So guess what I did, I searched and searched to find a smaller size on the web and hey presto found one!  What joy to find the item I'd been longing for in the right size.  So happy with it I've worn it twice over the past week!
You can catch when I featured it on the blog for the first Five over 50 "Something old, something new....... challenge.

We headed into town on Saturday to have a few drinks with my brother-in-law for his birthday.  We actually caught the bus over which made a real change - what a bumpy, fast journey that was, and isn't it funny sitting on public transport without wearing a seat-belt???  I found myself reaching for the non-existent belt and trying not to touch the sticky side panels! Needless to say we got a taxi home! 🤣
So on to Sunday, we attended a christening for our great-nephew!  We had brilliant weather and lots of catching up with family and friends.  The kids loved the freedom of the enclosed garden, enjoying the bouncy castles and running around chasing each other.  We also enjoyed the free flowing drinks and the funky music - lol. x

This is the New Look jumpsuit I wore into town.  The white background is covered with pink, blue, orange and black palm leafs.  It has a deep v neckline that needed a tiny pin at the bust line - I may just put a little stitch on it instead - just to keep my decency.  It also has a zip at the back with a tie belt in matching material. The wide leg culottes are so flattering and give a breezy laid back feel.

Jumpsuits are definitely my favourite pieces for the summer months, and fortunately I haven't run into any bathroom issues as of yet!  I like that you don't have to think too hard about what to wear or match up.  I only need to find accessories for a dress or all-in-one, for this outfit I chose pink suede mules and a pretty blue three strand beaded necklace.

Second big tick for this outfit are the pockets, anything with them is always a winner in my eyes so this gets a huge thumbs up for sure.

Thanks for stopping by today, appreciate your support.
Hubby kindly took these photos, and I'm still contemplating whether to try an on line course or not!  What are your thoughts on this?
Bye for now my friends. X
