How's your Bank Holiday weekend going?
Hasn't the month just flown by! I think it's because we've had a little more freedom as I'm fitting more and more into my weeks. I've been enjoying it, but admit it's been hard keeping up with it all, I hope in time I'll get used to it again and fit even more exciting things in too.
Over the weekend I enjoyed a family party at my mum's house. Fortunately the weather was good for us and we had an outdoor event with a bouncy castle for the kids that lasted into the early evening when the weather got windy and much cooler. We made it easier for mum by all taking a plate of food - I made some smoked salmon pate and coronation chicken with rice. It was a super afternoon and we all had a thoroughly great time - and that was without any adults having a go on the bouncy castle!
Anyway enough of my weekend antics, let's jump into the August Style Not Age challenge.
The challenge was set by Emma - Style Splash who's prompt of Statement Sleeves certainly got me thinking! I have many items with noticeable sleeves and knowing I've used most of them on the blog already made the challenge a little hard for me.
I've ended up picking a pretty top that you may recall seeing in the past (I've had this Bonmarche top for years). I wanted to pair it with a classic white skirt but couldn't find one suitable so decided to go with the Autumnal transitional look and wore these grey culottes .... complimenting grey leaf on my pretty blue floral blouse perfectly.
