How are you and what have you been up to?
It's hard to get motivated and wear anything that's sort of resembles stylish at the moment isn't it? These days I'll be found wearing something comfortable and very casual. My grand-daughter is staying with me at the moment and asked if she could pick something for me to wear. When I came out of the shower she'd picked three outfits. The first was a newly acquired green dress from my daughter, the second my mustard coloured Spring dress and finally my yellow trousers with a pretty sparkly jumper. I have to admit my first choice would have been the elegant green dress but thinking it through sensibly I ended up wearing a boring grey velour suit with a black tee shirt! Crawling on the floor with the kids and preparing dinner just didn't seem the 'right' occasion - ha ha ha.
Today you find me sharing the fashions' of my four blogger friends who, along with me, are sharing their interpretation for the prompt set by our newest member and previous co-founder of the 5 over 50 collective Gail ....
Do you love denim? I'm a huge fan and seriously wear jeans at least 70% of the week especially in the cooler days. I also give my denim jacket the same frequency when a jacket is all I need. I've had denim skirts in the past of varying styles, but to-date haven't got any that I wear. So when Gail suggested the prompt I was chuffed as I'd just bagged this lightweight jumpsuit from Matalan for the bargain price of £25. When you know, you know, and that's how I felt when I spotted this hanging in their store. I simply knew it was 'me' & just had to try is on, I found it not only fitted beautifully but looked just right too! What do you think?
I'm sure you've all spotted my rainbow shoes and I know that many of you love them. They are a bit too high for everyday wear and certainly aren't being worn anywhere ... well anywhere at the moment, but they are ready and waiting for when the time comes.
Here's my lively orange jacket taking it up a notch - I wanted colourful colours to match my shoes. You've seen my biker jacket before and it's quite versatile and very noticeable, worn on my flamboyant days!
All sorts of nice is this jumpsuit. From the front opening buttons, to the adjustable trouser length (it can be rolled over and over to make the leg length shorter) - I'm happy with it. It has short capped sleeves, so would need a jacket on cooler days. Definition can be added by using the attached matching belt to pull in the waist, and I'll be adding other colours like tan or maybe white to change the whole look.
It's also available in soft pink which is really nice, but not a patch on the faithful mid-wash denim I picked. I fully accept this is a transitional outfit - paired with layered tee shirts and informal jackets, but with the legs rolled up and sandals donned this will work well for summer evenings and holidays too!
Gail - Is this Mutton is styling her denim dress beautifully. I love the pink accessories and simply adore the tartan tights - a statement indeed.
Anna - Anna's Island Style with her denim jeans look like she's heading in the right direction for Style Street. I love the matching embroidered coat too an all round perfect combination.
Emma - Style Splash has chosen to pair denim with bright cerise pink! I love them combination so will be heading in that direction of my wardrobe to copy it!
Hilda - Over the Hilda is heading in the direction of comfort and style in her comfy jeans and jumper ensemble. You simple can't go wrong with skinny jeans can you!
Thanks for stopping by, I love to have you here and would love you to check out my friends too.
