Mom Jeans - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
How are you all doing?
Seems crazy to think we had some "almost" nice weather at the beginning of the week, but it's so cold now, with a biting wind and grey skies!  
I met up with a friend for coffee and a scone yesterday - it was a very chilly walk along the beach and we both welcomed the sheltered area where we sat, ate, drank and chatted.  We decided that when we are allowed to enter premises to have a meal or a drink Mother Nature will be there sticking two fingers up as we'll be sweltering in the heat and clambering for outdoor tables - lol.
Anyhow ... this is what I wore, basically I just changed to skinny jeans and ugg boots (boy did I need them)!

Style not Age - Spring Sweaters

Hi there everyone.
Glad you could stop by today.
You're just in time to see what the Style not Age collective have been creating from the prompt set by
She made it easy for us with the challenge ....
Spring Sweaters.

Let me tell you a bit about my week.  I took charge of my Giveaway prize on Friday.  I was lucky enough to win a stylish lounge suit from Asquith London and I'm revelling in the comfiness of the two pieces - do pop over to IG to see them.  
Saturday night we managed to have drinks and food al fresco with our good friends - it was rather chilly so not a late and raucous night we would usually have - that will come, my friends that will come! 🤭
Another two birthday's celebrated over the weekend with my daughters on Friday and daughter-in-law's on Sunday - all celebrated outside I'm pleased to say but was bloody cold though!  There's another two this week and then a bit of a lul until the next three-in-a-row!!!  (I told you it was an expensive couple of months - lol)

Tu Skirt & Cable Jumper - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP.

Morning my friends.
How you all doing?
Exciting week for me and I'm happy to say I've been to the beauty salon yesterday and am going to the hairdressers this very day!!!  I'm so excited to be getting my hair trimmed, it's beginning to get me down as it's way too long and out of condition.  Catch the looks on IG my lovely friends.

Today I'm sharing another look from Bonmarche.  A jumper is the perfect addition for Spring - worn over a tee shirt or blouse is a stylish way to layer up when the weather calls for it. Doesn't the bright yellow give off a positive vibe too!

Animal Print top from Bonmarche with Wide Leg Trousers.

Morning my friends.
Hope you're doing well.
I'm in the thick of birthday's this and next month, with 10 to celebrate! Two under my belt already - it's an expensive month I can tell you!
It will be nice to try and have a bit more of a celebration than last year when it was literally my family indoors who could enjoy the day.  I'm praying for better weather so we can make full use of my new-last-year rattan furniture. 
I'm venturing out to do some more retail therapy again this week, I so enjoyed having a look at what's on offer and hope there's more to see.  I'll be sharing my two jumpers with you soon, actually one next week for the Style not Age challenge - do stop by to see our latest task.
I'm also off to the hair salon on Thursday, I can't wait!!! Have you had a trim yet?

At home with ... Suzy - The Grey Brunette + #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
Hope you're all okay.
The past couple of days have been very nice.  I've not actually eaten out or been to the pub yet, but have stepped inside a few more shops than the run-of-the-mill supermarket.  I'm planning a shopping trip today and hope to be out early to avoid any crowds.  Fingers crossed I come home with something new for Spring.  I had planned to get a new darker handbag for Winter, but you know that story- maybe it will be a lighter one for Summer - ha ha.  I promise you'll be the first to know what I buy my friends!

I've also spent a lot of time in the garden recently, cutting the grass and hedge and getting planters ready for some new flowers.  It's so nice when the weather is good to be outside in the fresh air - keeps my head clear and I adore seeing the birds visiting my new feeders. 🐦

Last month one of my good blogging pals was kind enough to feature me on their blog.
I was elated when Suzy - The Grey Brunette shared bits and pieces about my blogging career, sharing a few photos along the way.
I wanted to return the favour and feature my stylish friend on my blog.
A big welcome to Suzy..

Maxi Dress for Beach Days!

Morning from a very excited Mummabstylish!
Finally we are beginning to see light at the end of a very long tunnel!
Lock-down is starting to ease here, with shops, pubs and restaurants opening today. Hurrah!!!!
Obviously with masks, distancing and outdoor service, but at least it's a start in the right direction.
I can't wait to go shopping.  It will be nice to browse the stores and really look at the clothes before actually buying them, it'll be interesting to see just what the shops have in though eh!
I also can't wait for the gym to open.  You may know I started doing the Couch to 5K and have been quite successful, but I'm a people person and love to interact.  Also I'm tactile, so that might be a bit of a problem! Lol.
The hair salon's are also opening today and I have an appointment booked for 22nd and literally can't wait.  I've been trimming my fringe, but can't quite do it like my stylist, so I'm ticking off the days until Thursday week!!
We've had two family birthdays so far this month - with four more in the next couple of weeks!  I do pray the weather improves for garden parties.  You might have seen the cakes my daughter Little Berry Bakes made for them.  They went down really well, one was Spider-man themed the other Pirates!

Did you read about my latest dress from Bonmarche last week?  I've another beauty to share with you today too.  
It's a maxi and will be flattering addition to my wardrobe for sure.

Animal Print Dress from Bonmarche - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning everyone.
How are you all today?
Hope you aren't too cold, I know it's April so we shouldn't expect anything different!
These four day week's seem to fly by, I nearly forgot to prepare today's post!  Ended up working late into the night to get it done.

So even though it's not really dress weather at the moment ... today I want to share this striking animal print* look with you.

March Review.

Morning my lovely friends.
How ya' doing?
Happy Easter Monday.
Did you have a nice Easter weekend break?  
How many Easter eggs have you eaten?  I only got one and that was after lots of big hints to hubby and nearly having to buy it myself - lol.  I usually receive one from my mum, but she hasn't been out yet so didn't get one from her!  Ohhh I sound like a spoiled child don't I!!!!
The children enjoyed their Easter Egg Hunt 🐇🥚  If you follow my IG stories you may have seen my trail.  They had lots of eggs to enjoy, so I hope they didn't eat too many and make themselves ill!!!

Time for the March Review.
It's scary to think we are in April already, I just hope and pray that things keep heading in the right direction and we can continue our route out of lock-down.  
A new month also means I can share last month's blog posts.  
In this post you can read about what I've been obsessing over, I had a busy month that was filled with all sort of emotions.  I sadly lost my darling little Jack Russell Roxy after her being by my side for nearly 16 years.  Also I had a special little lady arrive some ten days early.  She's gone a long way to mend my broken heart. 💖

But first let's start with a vest top.  There's a few different terms for this little jumper and I've been interested to find out what you call them!

Chocolate culottes & Blush Blouse - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my lovely followers.
Hope you've been lucky enough to enjoy some sunny weather over the past few days.
It's been exciting to wear dresses and jackets and feel the sun on me.  It's also been lovely to start easing out of lock-down little by little.  The figures seem promising and are heading in the right direction, but who knows how things will pan out!
It's Easter weekend coming up and I'm planning an Easter egg hunt in the garden for the gran-kids.  I never actually had time to do this for my kids, but am pleased to have more time on my hands to arrange a hunt for my darling grand-babies.  I've got plenty of different sized chocolate eggs, little coloured buckets and some face masks my daughter found.  I can't wait to see their little faces hunting out the goodies.  All kids love chocolate don't they, as do their Nanny's ... I do hope my hubby has bought me one too - hint, hint.

Talking of chocolate, I thought I'd show you my new culottes again.  I first wore them for the Faux Leather - Style not Age challenge.  Today I've added blush pink to the equation and love how it's softened the brown culottes even more, creating a harmonious feel.
