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?
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
You could have seen my post from last week when I shared the dress in the same pattern & I can't help but be drawn like a moth to a flame for anything animal print.
This pretty top from Bonmarche* has a fancy frill on the peplum hem and also on the cuff of the 3/4 length sleeves, giving it a flirty feel that can be casualised with jeans and a trendy half tuck.
I like the pretty gathered neckline that gives it a nice modern vibe too. It's available in sizes 8 to 20 and I found it fits true to size too. It's a snip at £18 which makes this fashionable little top so affordable.
It's often been said not to pair black with brown, but I reckon it's a match made in heaven - don't you?
Here it's been teamed with my tan wide leg trousers, I had thought about black palazzo's or my faux leather pencil skirt - both would have worked well.
If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen these tan beauties before - I found them on the M & S sale site and had to buy them, they are fabulous and I'm so pleased with them. I had bought a short and regular but returned the shorter length, I now wish I'd kept them - you win some, you lose some eh! I could have worn them with trainers.
Don't be fooled by the sunshine here, I certainly needed my warm faux suede biker jacket as the wind was bitingly cold. I've had this one for many years now, a Christmas present and makes an appearance every once in a while and still looks like new! Well done Zara but here's an alternative from M & S.
Brown patent tote bag (similar) and nude heels completed my neutral look here and It's one I love to wear - so classic and very flattering.
Thanks for joining me here today - so good to have your support my lovely friends.
Esther Ruby very kindly took these photos for me - thank you darling you really do have an eye for details. 😀
Catch up with you on Thursday for the #LINKUP
Cheerio for now. X
