Hope you're all safe and well.
Well I had a productive weekend with the lovely weather we had. Managed to get out into the garden and do a bit of clearing whilst hubby and helpers shredded the branches we had chopped off the hedge.
I also cleared the tubs and pruned some bushes making it look a whole lot better and gave me a very positive feeling. I'm hoping Boris will have some promising news tomorrow evening, but am not holding my breath for any major changes to our situation yet!
As it's the last Monday of February it means the ladies from Style not Age have been hard at work creating their outfits for my prompt ...
There's been a lot of faux leather outfits around recently and I've been eyeing them all up and wanting to copy them. So I managed to find a gorgeous pair of black trousers in said faux leather and also some flattering culottes in a sumptuous shade of chocolate brown. I don't have very many pieces in this colour and like the softer alternative to black. Now the problem with not having much in this tone means also not having much to pair it with! I flicked through my wardrobe and came up with a few ideas including a soft pale blue top and a high neck blouse - both I'll be sharing soon. My eyes fell upon this combination and I slipped it on and immediately felt very classy. But do let me know what you think about my faux leather combination. X
Before we meet my girls, I want to tell you about my outfit.
I've wanted to jump on the faux leather culotte band wagon for ages, but hadn't found the right ones. How about chocolate brown as an alternative to black? I'm smitten with them and am pleased they feel as good on as they look. In the sale, which I love, for a stunning £14 - you can find the link to Very above.
I've not worn this top in quite a while, so when I hung my culottes next to it I was wowed! Just look how well they go together - the brown pops in the sunflower seeds don't you think! This is a few years old from Bonmarche and the neutral shades go with so much - makes me think of Summer days eh!
I brightened the whole look with an off white revere long coat from the New Look. I was overjoyed to find this one in the sale a couple of weeks ago and when I saw it reduced to just over £20 I couldn't resist it - well this is going to be a versatile little number that will be worn and worn. Have you found any bargains recently? Talking of bargains I've also just bought some wide leg trousers in the M & S sale too. They're tan and I've wanted a pair for ages - do watch out for them coming on the blog soon.
First up let's take a look at Gail - Is This Mutton. Gail has brilliantly styled faux leather spanx with bright green accents and what a cool number it's made. Love this shade of green and it's one I should try - I reckon it might suit me! 😉
