Hello there my friends.
How are you all?
I've had a good week so far with two runs under my belt nearing my 5k target each time. Mind you I'm a picture when I've finished! I'd love to be one of those ladies who run their circuit and don't break out in a bead of sweat! Me - I look like I've run through torrential rain and need a shower and hair wash when I'm finished, but to be fair it's good I run first thing then come home, shower and change into more stylish attire. Anyone else have that problem or can you stay in gym gear for the remained of the day?
I had my hair trimmed last week and it's now settled into a happy, less stressed style - my hair seems to get 'scared' whenever I have it trimmed it doesn't lay right and I never like the way my stylish blow-dries it either. 😟 I like to style it 'my' way and put a little 'oomph' into it - do you have that issue?
One thing I don't have an issue with is wearing culottes. Today I'm sharing another pair from Bonmarche and like last week's animal design these stone version are really going to work hard in my wardrobe throughout the Summer and into Autumn too!
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
I've wanted a another pair of culottes for a while and when I spotted these on the Bonmarche website I thought they'd be perfect in my collection - how right I was. Neutrals work well with most colours and this pretty OTS top looks in-keeping with summery vibes - trying to entice the sunshine to stay - lol. Do you remember seeing this sunflower blouse? It's also from Bonmarche a couple of season's ago - you can see it paired with my black plazzo trousers & with my mustard culottes here.
Cropped trousers or culottes are so cool to wear in the summer, quite literally really cool! Sometimes skirts make me hot and sticky and that's when lightweight short trousers are a god-send. Mine also have a fabulous half elastic waistband which is such a good idea - lockdown has left me with some extra pounds I hadn't anticipated & I'm hoping easing out of LD to some sort of normality will have me return to the gym and maybe my diet too!
The trousers also are available in two other colours as well as this stone version*. All come in sizes 10 - 28, although some sizes are very popular so are now not available but do check them out as the £16 price tag is heaven to the purse. All machine washable and don't need an iron - did you hear me - DON'T NEED AN IRON - yay!
Aren't the shoes delicious - #just saying
From Dorothy Perkins and looking fabulous with this stunning dress my neutral 'Demy' ankle strap sandals are still available online my friends - hurrah!
