Alright in Abstract - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello everyone, welcome to the last blog of the year, next stop 2022!

That sounds so scary doesn't it.  Twenty twenty one came and went full of Covid and all its restrictions.
Let's hope and pray that the next year improves and we have some kind of normality ... please!

Do you have any plans for NYE?  Did you catch my post on Monday, the ladies from Style not Age were sharing their Little Black Numbers, do have a look.  I'll probably be in a lounge suit on the sofa .. again, as I'm not going out. 🤣

You all know I'm a huge fan of wearing dresses, somewhat a signature of mine to wear dresses more than separates (except for wearing jeans).  So when Roman Originals asked me to pick a couple of pieces from their new range I had to include a dress in my list didn't I!

Style Not Age share - Our Perfect Little Black Number's for NYE.

Hello and welcome to my over fifties blog.
To be honest it's not only for over 50's, everyone is welcome.
And just like that Christmas was over.  All that stress, worry, anxiety and panic for one day and it comes and goes in the flash of an eye.  Why oh why do I worry so much?
My Christmas day was rather a different version than the one I had planned in my mind!  One of the family tested positive for Covid and I had to re-arrange the whole day!  We managed to pack three cars full of cooking ingredients, utensils, cutlery, presents and the turkey and use my daughters house.  At least I could enjoy my day unlike last year but one I hope I don't have to relive next year!
Hope your's went well, I ate way too much as usual.  The gym and spin class can't come quick enough - oh are the gym's still open?  I do hope so.🙏

Can you believe it's the last challenge this year for my group of friends from the Style Not Age Collective ... do stop by for a brand new challenge next month - I wonder what we'll be set!
So are you venturing out for NYE?  With the Government changing plans for day to day, it's hard to know what will happen.  We aren't actually going out so I'll probably be indoors in a lounge suit or something equally as comfortable to laze about in!  Had I been going out and if I hadn't eaten my weight in chocolates over Christmas I'd be wearing this classy number.

At Home With ... Jess - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello and welcome to my blog Mummabstylish,  
So pleased to have you join me today as I'm sharing another respected blogging friend Jess for my 
At Home With ... series.
I've followed Jess since I started blogging and get lots of inspiration from her stylish and well-put-together outfits.

Before we learn more about Jess, I'll briefly tell you about my week.
Since getting back from my holiday and weekend in Scotland I've been full on getting everything ready for the big day.  Every year I plan to have things sorted by the beginning of December and alas every year I fail big time! Lol.

I've just about got everything ready now, just one or two little gifts to buy and a couple of deliveries and then put a fork in me I'm done! 
I'm going to share a holiday photo with you all, and hope I don't make you too jealous!  I had an amazing time in Abu Dhabi for 10 whole nights in heaven with my hubby, (watch out for the full post).  This was our last day in paradise, and I travelled home in this floral beauty - soon changed into jeans and boots once I landed at Heathrow - certainly noticed the cold!!!

#Chiandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my friends.
Hop you're all well.

I have a big apology to make as I've been AWOL.  You see I've been away on holiday and I came home for a couple of days and went off for a long weekend to Scotland.  What a busy lady I've been and now I'm frantically trying to sort out my Christmas presents and get the house in order for the festivities.
I'm planning a dedicated post about my trip to Abu Dhabi, until that is ready here's the #linkup to keep you and me busy.

November Review.

Hello and welcome to you all.
As we speak I'm flying home from Abu Dhabi soon.
If you follow me on IG you will have seen many of my outfits, but I'll be showing them to you on a dedicated post in the next few weeks.
For now I'd like to share my November Review with you.  Just in case you've missed any of my posts, you can catch them all here. 

Do you remember my hubby buying me some jumpers?  Well I still have two that I've not had a chance to style yet, so do watch out for them, but until then why not hop back to this post where I showed off a couple with jeans and a big smile!

Grey Coat From Bonmarche - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello my friends.
I'm mid-way through my holiday and I'm probably enjoying some sunshine, some wonderful food and a few delicious drinks!  What more could a girl ever need ....  (the Mall is just a slip away, through a door in the foyer of the hotel - sweet!)

I'll share my trip to Abu Dhabi with you in the coming weeks as I have some new dresses to show off.
Until then I wanted to re-visit a gorgeous little coat I was lucky enough to be gifted from Bonmarche.

I've had the wonderful opportunity of styling many of the new looks recently and wanted to spend a bit more time on the gorgeous coat* I chose as part of the gifted pieces.

Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
