#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.

Are you a fan of the vest jumper?
I found this cable version in Oban in Scotland over the weekend. Brilliant isn't it!
I'll be sharing a more detailed post soon as this jumper has so many possibilites.

I wore all new items for my day out to Inveraray .  We visited the jail that was open all year round, I can't tell you how cold it was there - I definitely needed the extra layer of my vest top, along with my thick padded coat!

Do stop by again to find out more of my Wintery warm look!

Time to party?  It's #Chicandstylish #LINKUP time.

  3. Love those ankle boots! And looking forward to read about your holiday!

  4. Such a cosy looking knit and you layer it well! I'm glad you have been enjoying your trips recently! Hope you manage to get everything organised for Christmas, it is such a busy time of year!

  5. I love those short sleeved sweaters! The one you found is absolutely gorgeous! I'd have snapped it up too. You look fabulous in this outfit, Jacqui. I must say, I'm rather envious of your visit to Scotland. It's such a beautiful part of the world, isn't it? We went there about four or five years ago and totally fell in love with the place. I remember going to Oban for fish n chips!
    I'm looking forward to reading more about all your recent escapades!
    Big hugs

  6. Ooh, Jacqui, your new vest jumper is so pretty! What a fabulous souvenir to pick up in Scotland! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, my friend!


  7. Aww, I bet you have had an amazing time :) Love this look, Jaqui. Yes I love these vest jumpers too as they don't make you too warm like a big jumper does and there is so many ways to style them. Thanks so much for hosting and featuring me too.

  8. At first I didn't really like the vest trend but I have seen quite a few cute looks like yours here and I am rethinking!

  9. Welcome back! I'm glad you had such a nice holiday. I love the boat behind you. Thanks for the party!

  10. Hi Jacqui! I look forward to hearing about your excursions. One of these days we will visit the Uk. Love the vest over the shirt, especially the winter white. Cute bag too! I dressed in layers at my moms as it was colder than what I am used to!

    Have a great day!

  11. What a cute vest jumper, I swear these are really trending right now and I've thought of getting myself one. You have been busy and I wish you and family a great holiday!


  12. I love these pics! I'll be studying abroad in Scotland starting in January, so seeing these pics of a Scottish town gets me really excited.

    Miles of smiles,

  13. I love sweater vests! Love how you styled this one! Thanks for the linkup and good luck with your Christmas shopping!


  14. That's a great vest, and I'm glad you're enjoying your travels—can't wait to read all about them!

  15. Hello and thank you for hosting! Wish you a great Holiday Season!

  16. Lucky you, Jacqui. I'm not upset, I'm just jealous! Lol! Those Aran sweaters are SO warm, aren't they? I bought one for my son when we were there but he doesn't have many opportunities to wear it here in California. Can't wait to hear more about Abu Dhabi!

  17. Thanks for sharing, it looks very warm.

    I recently got a women's plus size tracksuits, which can only be used at home. Still need to buy warm sweaters.

  18. Can't wait to hear all about your trip, babe!
