Lalage Beaumont - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning all, I do hope it's a good one for you all including all you over fifties out there.
What you got planned for the end of the week?  Today I'm so excited to be having a spa day with two friends - it's for my birthday (back in May) so will be a real treat.  I'm looking forward to a day of R & R, catching up with friends and a super lunch in the delicious country house.

A bit late in the season, but I picked up a neat pair of tailored Bermuda shorts in my local F & F recently, I figured they'd be a worthy edition to my wardrobe, and being white will be a useful piece for the next few years.  If the weather is dry, but cooler come the next few months I'll pair them with a thick top or jumper.  I may even try wearing boots with them too, so stay tuned for that one!
Anyway last week I decided to slowly blend Summer with Autumn mixing white with rust - namely my long sleeve frilly blouse I bought on my last visit to Venice.
I'm also styling the tan cross-body bag I returned with, my bags play host to the usual bits and bobs - phone, lippy, tissues and purse, however when I'm sporting a smaller more compact bag I often just take my bank cards and a small amount of change instead of my purse.  That's when this sleek little credit card holder from Lalage Beaumont came up trumps.

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

I found the shorts in the sale section of F & F for a cool £7, I know they'll get lots of use as white goes with anything.  They'll be a valuable piece to take on my forthcoming trip to Rome in September where I know I can wear them both day time with casual trainers or maybe dressed up with heels in the evening.  Details include deep pockets, detachable belt & pin tucks for a flattering finish.

The little Chanel style jacket came from Matalan ages ago it gets pulled on quite often as it gose with so much.  I like the thin black pin stripe & frayed edges.  I love this one too!

Lalage Beaumont* offers a sophisticated collection of classic and original handbags and small leather goods that are truly elegant and timeless pieces.  My card holder has room for 4 or 5 credit cards with a small section for notes in the middle too.  Do stop by and check out the seriously gorgeous designer handbags too, they are mouth-watering.  Lalage beaumont also offer clothing and hats - definitely taking a look for the wedding I'll be attending next year.

Picking the right colour from the choice of nine was hard, but I opted for the orange/tan as I wanted it to match my small leather cross-body bag, all were very appealing, I wonder what you would choose?

Lalage Beaumont gained extensive experience in the fashion houses in England designing for both Burberry and Mulberry among others.  Combining elegance and timeless beauty in all her creations.  Do stop by and read the full back story here.
