Good to have you here, appreciate you taking time out of your day to spend with me!
Been a lovely weekend for me. I have seen all the family including my mum who popped in for a cuppa and piece of my birthday cake. It's been so nice to enjoy some special time with them all, with a few cuddles to savour.
Friday I went ballroom dancing. It was the first session back since the beginning of lock-down and even though I danced alone and couldn't be partnered it was brilliant. It was so nice to twist and turn and feel carefree for a change. We followed all the rules and I felt totally safe learning a little waltz routine. We have 3/4's of an hour learning the steps and a further 15 minutes practicing them.
Saturday I took my grandaughter shopping, we only went into a couple of shops - namely Primark, H&M and Marks & Spencer. She came home with five dresses - the style she likes to wear are sleeveless summer dresses with patterns on - even in Winter ... lol. My little beauty will look perfect in is this one from H&M. How sweet is this with cute rabbits on it?
Saturday night if you saw my IG stories I went to my daughter's. Her hubby cooked us a typical dish from The Alps and it's the nearest I'm getting to being away skiing this year, how sad is that! 😞 We watched the Eurovision Song Contest - bloody annoyed that we got the usual nil points - seriously why do we bother to enter - not sure if voting is tactical or not because I think James Newman's song was brilliant & very catchy - do let me know if you like it my friends. x
Sunday was a family day too. Got to see my grandson and grand-daughter with mummy and daddy, they popped by to see us all so my other daughters also joined us too - nice to have nearly all the family together. No roast to worry about either so a takeaway curry was the order of the day - delicious as always.
How did your weekend go?
You may have seen this styled on IG last week, I wore the tunic dress and faux leather jeans slightly different though. Instead of the white boots I teamed light tan boots and a trench coat with it which I think worked better than the bright ivory boots here. The boots seem a bit too bold for the subtle, casual look, so I'll opt for the softer suede boots in future.
The floaty tunic in shades of pink animal print is a good length for me, I would only wear this over leggings or skinny jeans because it's way too short for me on it's own. I love the variety that can be achieved by pairing different jackets with it .... black is the obvious choice, but beige, cream or tan score high too. I love the fact you can layer a look like this, with a tee shirt under or a jumper over the top, but it's just come to mind that this vest top will look quite good as well - what do you think?
I'm enjoying wearing this blazer and you might recall I found a red one that looked smashing too. I ordered two sizes and they arrived - very disappointed in the quality of them, so they both got returned - I'm still on the look-out for a crimson copy do let me know if you see any! I'm a big fan of wearing jackets, they complete a look and are so easy to wear. I've also got my eye on this one from Zara, love the pretty Chanel style blazer & can see it worn with white jeans or these palazzo style trousers. 🤍💗
Do let me know how you'd style the tunic, I'm interested to hear your views. x
Thank you for joining the blog today, much appreciated.
I'll see you on Thursday for the #LINKUP.
