A snakeskin outfit from Outfit.

Hello there my friends.
Another busy weekend, which has been lovely.  I went to a 4 year old's birthday party on Friday, taking my grandson with me which was rather special.  He's just at that interesting age ... 2 1/2 ... stringing sentences together, quite literally jumping into everything and basically enjoying all he does - when he calls me Nanny he melts my heart. He's a cheeky chappy and I love spending time with him as I do all the gran-kids.

... when he calls me Nanny he melts my heart.

Saturday night hubby and I were out, out for drinks and dinner,  it was so nice to catch up with my sister and her husband and we certainly made a night of it - drinking way too much and subsequently having a really slow Sunday morning!  We were out for a friends birthday for Sunday lunch, what a delicious roast meal we had at Cafe and Kitchen.  Very often roast dinners out are just not like our own home cooked versions, but I can honestly say our meal was every bit as yummy.  You can tell I'm on the run up to the big day as my diet has gone out the window - I managed to demolish crayfish cocktail followed by roast turkey, roast potatoes, etc - polished off with plum crumble AND custard - I could hardly move after all I'd consumed and literally wanted to lay down and relax!!!  Guess what? I relaxed watching one of my favourite movies ..... Elf, brilliant fun, easy to watch and really one to get you in the festive mood. 🎄🎅🤶

Snakeskin is a neutral trend that's still at the forefront of fashion - complementing many a black outfit as well as loads of other colours (see when I wore a rust snakeskin dress last week).  I've got a few other items that work hard in my wardrobe and these shiny drape trousers are proving a welcomed addition too.  I'm going to have fun styling these again and again.

Here's the first and most obvious way I'd style these straight leg pants.  I picked a mushroom jumper that's from Primark.  I'm not happy with the quality of the £14 jumper, and you certainly get what you pay for - lesson learnt I'm looking for a better one as we speak!  Another well used jacket from my coat collection, this one is from Zara and is extremely warm as it's made from faux sheepskin.  It's a good alternative to black and has well and truly earned it's place in my wardrobe.

Let's spend some time on the trousers. They skim over my legs for an elegant look, fitting beautifully on the waist for a flattering look & comfortable feel.  With pockets either side of the button and zipper fastening - these stylish trousers will keep me bang on trend with lots of options waiting to be worn.  Do let me know what you'd pair them with.

Finishing touches by way of some big, bold tiger stripe beads and my tortoise shell Ralph Lauren sunglasses.  I'm ready for anything now!

Thanks for stopping by today, I know just how busy you all are, and really love that you spent the time with me.
Special thanks to Esther Ruby for taking my photos for me - mwahh. X
Good luck with the preparations, and catch you on Thursday.
Bye for now. X
