Style Not Age - Sharing our Tutti Frutti Numbers!

Hello there.
How's it going in blogging land?

You remember I'm on holiday this week, so as we 'speak' I'll be lazing by the pool in Majorca (hopefully). 
Packing was a lot easier as I'd got lots sorted a week or so before leaving.  What I tend to do is pull everything out that is a 'possibility' and whittle it down to what I actually take.  I've over-packed for so many years which ends up with me bringing loads home unworn.  Not this year I'm packing light, plus there's room for the odd frivolous purchase ... or three when I'm there. 😉  
As it's the last Monday of the month you've joined me for the Style Not Age challenge that was presented by Emma.

So without further ado let me share what it is ....
Our outfits are styled around the prompt Tutti Frutti.

All I could think about when I found out about this title was the sweets - Tooty Frooties. They were a firm favourite of mine back in the 80's but I don't see them in the shops now, so maybe they don't make them anymore .. shame!

Lotus Trainers with a Salamander Shirt - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
Hope you're doing well.

I'm a tad excited as I'm off on holiday on Saturday, unless the airports or any other interventions have other ideas.  There's 18 of us travelling to Majorca to stay in an all inclusive hotel in Can Picafort (thought I'd mention that so you could avoid the area) 🤣.

I'm nearly packed and not putting too much in as I know not everything will be worn.  I always pack one pieces like dresses and jumpsuits, it makes it so much easier not having to work out what goes with what - all that I have to think about is what accessories I will need.  

Whilst I like to wear dresses, I also love to wear separates & you don't need to look too far to see that.
Today I want to share a casual outfit of jeans and shirt - a flattering and classic look that works well for everyday wear which, I hope you agree, still looks stylish.

Morning my friends.
How was your weekend?

I'm on the run-up to my holiday, this week I'll be getting all of my toiletries bought, my nails done, eyelashes sorted and generally properly sorting my case.  I have a couple of bits to buy at the airport, but basically I'm done.

Father's Day yesterday was lovely, we went out for breakfast to a local cafe, I don't usually have breakfast, but decided to have poached egg on sourdough with smashed avocado and smoked salmon - It was delicious, but really filled me up.  I did managed to enjoy the Tapas meal the kids arranged for David at my daughters house. I'll be smelling all garlicky this morning in my gym classes, but the food they all prepared was worth it, shall I tempt you?  Okay I will!  We ate garlic king prawns, meatballs, cous cous, roasted chicken, merguez sausages, chorizo & peppers in tomato sauce & potato bravas - sounds amazing doesn't it!  We had a super afternoon with beers and sangria to wash down the tapas dishes. Did you have a celebration for Father's Day, hope you special men were spoilt X
Alas I don't have my dad around, neither does David but we did raise a glass to them as we always do.

Today I thought I'd share my look from yesterday with you, it's another peek at my orange espadrilles.

Father's Day Ideas with Cotton Traders - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello there, 
How are you today?

We've had super weather here over the past few days, and it certainly feels like Summer might have arrived.  I have my holiday with the kids in just over a week's time, so I've been gradually getting my case sorted.  I don't need many new pieces as I often have a 'special' wardrobe for holiday wear ... I was chatting to my beauty therapist the other week and she was telling me she has clothes and jewellery just for her holidays too!  I tend to wear bits that I maybe wouldn't wear at home, this often feels like I have a whole new wardrobe for my trip ... do tell me we are not the only ones who do this!!!

On Sunday it's Father's Day here in the UK, and as I've been kindly gifted these pieces by Cotton Traders I wanted to share a couple of ideas with you so you can surprise your dad on his special day!  Some Father's are very tricky to buy for as they either don't NEED anything, (unlike us girls) or they buy things themselves.  Well these post might just give you a few possibilities!

Co-ord from Nomads & Espadrilles from Lotus.

Morning everyone.
How are you doing?

I'm doing well and feeling in such a happy mood.  I've had a super weekend, been to the gym, am getting into the holiday mode with my trip to Majorca which is only a couple of weeks away and the sun is shining today!  Maybe my outfit of yellow and white last week worked it's magic and the weather is going to be nice!
On Saturday after working in the garden, David and I went out with our friends to a lovely restaurant near us.  The views from The Crescent Turner were amazing and all the staff were really friendly (my friend's daughter works there and really did spoil us).  There was a wedding being celebrated in the teepee they have up.  It all looked and sounded charming, but we were all surprised to see the bride sitting on her own eating some chips and sandwiches, so we invited her to our table and not sit on her own! We had a lovely chat about her day and telling her how long we'd been married etc ... and then off she went back to celebrate her wedding with her friends and family! It was quite bizarre!

Sunday we had a BBQ, the weather, still playing fair, was lovely to sit in and we took full advantage of the garden to enjoy the afternoon.  Monday has come around way to soon, which is why this post is so late coming out ... do forgive me my friends. X

Today's outfit just seemed to fall into place!  I received this co-ord from Nomads Clothing and the sandals from Lotus shoes and they just seemed to click with each other.

Enticing the sun to come out and stay! - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hiya my friends. 
Don't mind me I'm lazing in the garden as it way too hot to do anything ... 
Urmm, sorry I was dreaming it's actually very cold and rather changeable here in the UK isn't it, one minute it's sunny, the next it's pouring with rain!  I'm itching to get into my summer clothes but most of them are still waiting to be worn!  I've not even put many of my jumpers & tracksuits away as I'm still wearing them!  What's going on with mother nature, with mixed weather from the remnants of Storm Alex later in the week it's not going to get any better is it!  I feel like investing in a trendy rain mac will be a good idea, ha ha!

What's the best thing to do when the weather is crap?  Wear something bright and cheerful of course.  
My yellow and white outfit is to inspire some sunshine to arrive and banish the rain - hope it works!

May Review.

Hi there my friends.
How's your weekend gone?
Here in the UK we've had a wonderful 4 day bank holiday weekend with lots of celebrations for the Queens Platinum Jubilee.  You can read about my experiences with the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilee in last Thursday's post.
June has arrived for us all, and rather than Flaming June we've definitely got cold and wet June - doesn't sound too good does it!  It also means it's time for a recap of last month's outfits, do stay and read about my May Review post.X

I was delighted to receive these sandals from Moshulu at the beginning of May, I had hoped to wear them more often over the past month and I have to admit to doing my best and donning them at every opportunity, but when It's so cold and raining I had to draw the line and wear shoes a tad warmer and more covered in.  Come the end of the month I'll be strutting my stuff in Majorca so you can be sure they'll be joining me there!

Platinum Jubilee & Have you Planned for the Future? - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hiya everyone, how are you?
I'm all good and anticipating a fantastic long weekend celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee.
Haven't got anything planned but whatever I do it will be with the family and some friends, I'll keep you posted what I get up to!

I wanted to get into the festive mood though and have decided to wear red white and blue in my outfits this week.  This is one I wore on Tuesday.
This T shirt dress I've had for ages, & I love the navy and white stripes - makes it quite nautical really and the colours make it very patriotic too!   I picked it up before a holiday in Matalan.  It's so soft & comfortable to wear, it just slips over the head and can be worn with a belt or just loose like this.  I like that it's full length and the extra splits up either side add a little sass to the look.  I added some red beads, the only one's I actually own and were a gift from my son one Christmas.  
Trainers really do give dresses and edgy look and I'm hooked on wearing mine whenever I can, I've also got two new pairs to share with you - do watch out for them on my Instagram page.  I topped the whole thing off with a jean jacket, I've acquired this one from my daughter, it's too big for her so she passed it onto me ... how lucky!

This is a sponsored post, however these are my own honest comments.



When I was younger I never envisaged reaching my thirties let alone my 50's it's almost like I blinked and became 58 - does anyone else feel like this?

Style Not Age - Birthstone Beauties.


Morning my friends. 
Hope your month went well.

June this week sounds crazy doesn't it!
As it's the last Monday of the month it's time to look at what the ladies from Style not Age have been working on.  It was my turn this time and as it fell in my birth month I thought the title of 
Birthstone Beauties would be a topical challenge.  I'm thrilled to see each of my friends have a different stone, all the looks are so different and our individual personalities really do shine through.


I've always loved my birthstone, it's an Emerald and although I don't wear much green I always feel it suits me so well - do let me know what you think. X

It's a Wrap ... Dress from Per Una - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP


Hi there my friends, hope you are well.
How's your week been?

Since Monday's post I've been doing a little bit of DIY.  For the first time ever I've put wallpaper on the wall!!  I'm so proud of my achievement and you'd have thought I'd painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel .. lol  Let me tell you a little of the back story, you see David and I are planning to build two new houses on our property - so we haven't done much to our house and most certainly many of the rooms need serious attention.  You'll have seen my new dressing room that we created back in January, but I only did a little bit of painting then.  This week I've been putting wallpaper up! (Is there a proud moji?)  I was watching some TikTok's showing how to make-over a cloakroom and was introduced to self adhesive wallpaper!  Have you heard of it?  Well as you can guess you peel off the back and stick on the wall.  It was a bit fiddly in places, but I eventually got to grips with it and managed to paper the whole of the room.  It was only halfway down as the rest will be painted, but so far so good.  Will share some photos when it's all done.

For my birthday the other day I had a gorgeous wrap dress given to me from the children, they tend to put their money together and buy one or two big presents - I got this pretty wrap dress, the lilac mules, a statement summer hat and some chocolates.  I'm happy to say the dress is a perfect fit and just what I would buy myself.

What to Wear for a Barge Race on The Thames.

Morning my friends.
How are you?

Another busy Saturday for me, I went to London to watch my youngest son James compete in The Barge Race on the River Thames.  It's an age old tradition, and you can read more about it here!
It was an early start departing for the train at 7.30am.  I took a picnic lunch, snacks and drinks as we were on the boat all day - with no loo we had to stop off at various points for comfort breaks and getting on and off the boat was ... err shall I say interesting!   You can see my wobbly boarding of the boat over on Instagram. 😅

I obviously had to wear something suitable for a day on the boat, as well as getting on and off, it's a work boat so not really suitable for dressy outfits.  I wore jeans. I do admit that wearing white jeans wasn't really my best decision.  Well you do the math's ...work boat and white jeans, yeah I got them dirty!!!
To be fair I think I looked the part, and that's all that matters really eh?

A White Maxi from Nomads Clothing - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello everyone, hope you're well.
Huge thanks for stopping by, I'm very honoured to have your continued support.

We've had brilliant weather so far this week, I've been living in floaty dresses and skirts with some pretty sandals to match.  With the second stint of birthdays just about done I'm starting to think about my holiday in June.  Did I mention we are going away with all the kids, their partners AND their children!  That makes 18 on a plane to Majorca to stay in an all inclusive hotel in Can Picafort (for those who want to avoid the area we go at the end of June). 😜
I'll be doing the usual and packing one pieces like dresses and jumpsuits, I just find that so much easier than taking separates where I end up wearing the wrong things together leaving an outfit totally unsuitable - have you ever done that?  My daughter has now said that's what she will do, so I must have passed on some helpful tips somewhere along the line!

Now if you dropped by on Monday you'd have seen it was my birthday on Sunday, another year older and maybe a bit wiser.  I wanted to have family and friends round and provide drinks and some food, and that's just what I did!
As I mentioned above the weather was nice on Sunday, not too warm, but warm enough to have an outside gathering.  David cooked his usual amazing roast potatoes - in goose fat & I made two pates, one smoked salmon and the other my signature starter ... chicken liver pate.  I also had crisps and some dips & a few sweets to keep the children happy.  I received some wonderful gifts and felt well and truly spoiled especially after getting a cute orange bag and matching belt, some new trainers, a dress, jacket sandals, chocolates and lots of pretty flowers and lovely cards - it was a perfect day that I'd been waiting two years to happen, lock-down birthday's just weren't the same were they! 

I've been lucky enough to review some pieces from Nomads Clothing over the past few weeks and found this white maxi will be a winner for Summer as there's so many different ways to style it!  You can catch a reel I made for Instagram featuring some of the looks, and this one has to be one of my best looks!

Wedding wear in Izabel London.

Afternoon my friends.
I can't believe I'm so late with this post!

I've have such a busy weekend with a wedding on Saturday and then it was my birthday yesterday!
So today's post will be be bit short and sweet, but I promise to be back on track by Thursday.

So let's start with the wedding.
It was the wedding of one of my daughter's oldest friends, which she was bridesmaid.  It's be planned for a few years, and fortunately Covid didn't cause any issues for them.  I mentioned in a previous post I'd bought a dress from the same company I was gifted this beauty from.  Izabel London have an absolutely stunning selection and at one stage I have about 7 in my basket!  I finally took the plunge with this cerise stunner.  I just couldn't resist the colour and style and knew without a doubt that it would suit me and I had just the right shoes to go with it.

You can see my previous post featuring the maxi I was sent and as they're both reasonably priced maybe I should have bought more!

Birthday's, Ballet Results and Bardot Styles - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there,
How's it going?

I'm on the count down to my birthday, it's only 3 days away! Not that I want to be another year older, but I want to spend time with my family and friends.  Like all of you, lock-down has scuppered any plans to get together over the last two years, so with all the rules lifted I'm hoping my family will be round to celebrate with a drink or two! 😉  
On Saturday I'm off to another wedding with hubby.  My daughter is bridesmaid to one of her oldest friends and it's been lovely to be included in the celebrations.  I've got a couple of dresses in mind, and also a new one has been ordered (hope it comes in time) from the company that sent me this one I wore to the wedding last week. 

The blue lace dress I've been planning to wear has been hanging on the rail since the first and only time I wore it - it was to my niece's wedding way back in 2017, but as it's a classic style I know it wouldn't look out of place - but as I've still not tried in on (I've lost weight and put on weight and lost again since) I don't know if it will fit!!
Don't worry I'll let you know which one I chose to wear.

I need to tell you about my ballet exam result.  Do you remember I did an adult ballet exam a few weeks ago?  Well I managed to get honours with a score of 89!!! As you can imagine I'm elated to achieve this, especially only training once a week and being over 50!  Just goes to show anything is possible and you're never too old to try something new!

Anyway back to dresses, let me share one I've got earmarked for my upcoming holiday to Majorca.  Have I mentioned we are going with ALL THE KIDS AND THEIR FAMILIES in June????
It's going to be an interesting one for sure and I'm anticipating all of us being THAT family that people want to avoid - lol!  I'm setting a few ground rules before we travel and I'm hoping for a row free happy holiday - stay tuned for that outcome in July!!!

Wearing my Izabel Dress to a Wedding.

Morning my friends.
How you doing today?

I've had a lovely week, with a wedding on Thursday and a lovely dinner with friends on Saturday night.
We have the next stint of birthdays coming up starting with mine next Sunday.  I'm planning on having friends and family round for some drinks and nibble - it'll be the first time I've celebrated a birthday properly since the beginning of Covid and I'm really excited to see everyone together.  I've put my order in for a big birthday cake from my daughter - you can see what she baked me last year.  I've asked for a Victoria sponge but the rest will be a surprise, I love a surprise do you?

It's the season of weddings isn't it and I have three in the space of 3 months, so when I was asked by Izabel London if I'd like to pick something from the website I had fun looking through their pretty items.
My eyes fell upon this stunner so I looked no further!

Moshulu Sandals by the Seaside - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
I hope you are all well.

Another busy few days for Mummabstylish - the Bank Holiday always throws me off track, so with that and a couple of birthdays recently I don't know if I'm coming or going. 😅 
On Tuesday I went to see the new Downton Abbey film.  It's called A New Era and I was suitably impressed with the whole thing.  I'm a big fan and watched the series religiously every Sunday evening.  My Mother-in-law also loved watching it with us and we had many an enjoyable Sunday evening watching it.  My daughter is also a huge fan too - she walked down the aisle to the theme tune and even had one of the cars featured in the drama for her wedding!  Lovely memories for us all, did you ever watch it? I have to say what a fabulous 'feel good' film it was - thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish and actually want to see it again - I always see other bits when I watch a film again - do you?

With a couple of holidays booked I've started thinking about my Summer wardrobe.  I have plenty of one piece dresses and jumpsuits so won't need to add too much there, I will need some swimwear and maybe a couple of cover up dresses.  One thing I won't be needing are a pair of comfy sandals as I was recently approached by Moshulu asking if I'd like to review a pair of my choice.  Well with a fantastic selection I found on the site I just had to say yes!


If you order now and up until Tuesday 10th May (11.59pm) Moshulu are offering £10 off cork sandals - I do love a bargain, do you?  So why not take advantage of the above discount and get yourself a stylish pair too!

April Review.

Hi there my friends.
Hope Bank Holiday weekend is going well for you.
I've had a ball!

Friday night I went to Ballroom as usual, we learnt the quickstep. Boy was it quick!  I got quite hot running around the floor doing chasse's, lock Steps and quarter turns, it was great to learn these fast steps and I managed to get through the whole routine fairly well, even if I do say so myself.  Back home to a Chinese takeaway and a glass of fizz with the excited anticipation of a long Bank Holiday weekend laying ahead of me.

Saturday morning was spent in the garden, I cut both front and back lawn and after tidying up a few pots and running my daughter into Canterbury I came home to strim the boarders.  I love to see the garden all neat and tidy and will be getting the pots ready for Summer plants and flowers in the next few weeks.  We had a cheat meal again by way of a burger and kebab!  Not the healthiest of dinners, but tasted bloody good!  Hubby and I watched Forest Gump although I have to admit to not seeing the end of it, it's a brilliant film and isn't Tom Hanks just the best actor!

Sunday was nice and relaxed, I'd decided not to do a big roast but knew I had a full fillet steak in the freezer so decided to cook a Beef Wellington.  Yes it was amazing!  Tasty and delicious as you can imagine it would be - I didn't prepare or cook, hubby did that, but I am a fantastic sous chef getting everything chopped and ready to go, oh and having little tastes along the way - well that's the perks of the job isn't it!

As it's the beginning of May, there's only one thing to share today ... the April Review!

With April being a month of colder temperatures I wanted to share some new sandals and a shirt with you.  So layers are the best thing to turn to in cooler climbs therefore I picked wide leg trousers, a cotton shirt and little jacket which was just right for the mid-temperatures that we encountered.  Do stop by to read all about my frilly blouse and comfy mules.

A Pink Teddy Blake - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Good morning everyone,
Thanks for joining me today.
Do add to the #Linkup below, be great to see what you've been wearing lately.

Well I'm well and truly in the thick of birthday celebrations with Hubby's yesterday and my son-in-laws today!  Not a big celebration, just pizza and a couple of drinks so no sore heads today - always a silver lining!
Ballet starts again today and I hope to find out my results from the recent exam I took - I'll let you know how I get one.  It's also my son-in-law's birthday today, so will be seeing him later after a visit to The Cotswold Company as I've been invited to their opening launch party - will try popping something up on IG for you to see.


I said on Monday I would share a recent gift with you. Seems by birthday came when this beauty arrived - it's a stunner!  Well just see for yourself who wouldn't want this stunning Teddy Blake bag?

Style not Age - This Old Thing!

Hello and welcome to the blog.
How's you week gone?

They seem to be flying by for me, I only seem to blink and it's Monday again!
Had another super family filled weekend.  It's was my eldest's birthday on St Georges Day (Saturday) and she had a little gathering of about 50 people.  It was lovely to all be together which has been much miss I can tell you. It ended up quite a late night for me, but totally worth it although we missed a lift home and had to walk (took twice as long as we were both a bit tipsy .. ha ha).
Have you managed a large family event yet?

As you can imagine Sunday was a slow day and I decided to not cook a big dinner.  Yes you guessed what we ate ... an Indian - my absolute favourite, followed by chocolate - I just had to finish the rest of my Easter Egg, I just need them gone!
I had little Max to look after but he was, as usual, as good as gold.

So do you remember me telling you I was going on a one-2-one photography course?  It was for three hours on Friday in Canterbury.  I didn't know what to expect, but took along my camera - making sure I remembered my SD card and that the battery was full.  The course started at 10 am and I met up with the lovely Tania by The Marlowe Theater.  We went back to her flat where she explained all sorts of details about exposure compensation, focus, camera settings and things like making the background blurry.  I can honestly say I couldn't remember everything that Tania told me, but she has since sent a brief summary of what she taught me along with general notes for the one day digital course. I will be doing lots of studying over the next few weeks.  I set the camera up for hubby to take photos (I'm sharing those on Thursday) and today's were the second lot he took - still not 100% but I feel it's a work in progress and as they say Rome wasn't built in a day was it?  I've just been working on one setting so far and feel it will be better to start on one thing and really learn that before trying anything else - any pointers greatly appreciated. X


Anyway back to the blog, it's the last Monday of the month which means it's time for me and the ladies from Style Not Age to share our takes on the prompt that Gail presented us with ....

...This Old thing!

I'm Ditsy over Florals - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello and welcome to Mummabstylish.
So happy you've found my blog today.

I'm an over fifty fashion blogger and love sharing my styles and a little of my lifestyle.  I'm a busy mum of 5 grown up kids who have blessed me with 7 grand-kids ... so far.
It's a hectic house as I have two still at home and the others are only a short journey away.  They are always popping by or needing help so there's always something going on.  Just yesterday I looked after two of them whilst daddy caught up on sleep (he works shift patterns) and the night before I had little Max whilst mummy and daddy went out for dinner.  They certainly do keep me on my toes - quite literally!  
Tell me are you hand's-on grand-parents or still parents - it's hard work and I take my hat of to you!

I'm also a very excited Mummabstylish.  Reason being I've treated myself to a one-to-one photography course.  It's just for a few hours on Friday (tomorrow) but I hope to have mastered how to take (or set up the camera) photos of me for the blog - wish me luck!

I'm so thankful to have wonderful children who are fully supportive of me and my blog.  They help me in any way they can.  Hubby also helps me with ideas for blogs and also taking photos.  So once I've had my lesson on Friday I hope I've got a better idea of what I'm doing, fingers crossed for better photos.
My youngest daughter helped take these photos today, hasn't she caught the skirt brilliantly!

Easter Egg Hunt!

Happy Easter Monday everyone.
How's your weekend gone so far?

I've had a brilliant time.  Dancing on Friday when we finished off the Tango!  I thoroughly enjoyed it and had the pleasure of dancing at the end for the tuition video - I'll have to check with the teacher to see if I can share it on here!
Saturday was grass cutting and getting the garden ready for the Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday morning.
We had a yummy takeout curry whilst watching Joker staring Joaquin Phoenix.  What a dark and mysterious film but I have to say I was gripped throughout the dramatic psychological thriller and found the performance by JP amazing - if you've not seen it I'd 100% recommend it!

More about this outfit on Thursday, but today I'd like to share yesterday's Easter Egg Hunt. 🥚

Matalan Florals - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there,
How you all doing?

It's the Easter holidays and we have a family dinner planned for Sunday after the usual Easter Egg Hunt.  Hope it's warm and sunny for the kids as we have a big garden (you recall I'm always moaning about cutting the grass) so there's plenty of hiding places.  Do you do anything special for Easter?

Talking of the garden, I need to get my pots planted for the Summer, I adore seeing the flowers bloom and my all time favourite has to be an agapanthus.  The lilac flower balls are a sight to see and I can't wait to spot the stems growing day by day.  I've also got a beautiful peony that finally bloomed last year after nothing at all since it was planted!  I have a couple of rose bushes, all gifts and all have pretty stunning buds later in the season.  My love for flowers continues into what I wear.  I'm a big fan of flowery dresses and this year there's an abundance of floral accessories like shoes, bags and hair accessories.  I might try out the latter, but I'm not a big fan of flowers on the other pieces - maybe a blouse is more my thing as are dresses.  Would you wear floral shoes?

Today I'm sharing the prettiest dress with you.  There's a riotous scattering of pink, yellow and blue petals over this smock dress, which gives scope for lots of accents - I hope you like mine?

Spring Greens from Cotton Traders.

Morning everyone.
How are you all today?

I've had another super weekend, with lots accomplished.  
Saturday was one of those days when loads got done and Sunday wasn't too bad either.  Hubby and I cut both front and back grass and did plenty of clearing and sorting.  We also got a few jobs done in the house with my daughter helping sort some of the crap we had stored.  Are we the only house who has tons of 'stuff' all over the place?  There's lots to go to the charity shop, some bags to go to the tip and a few bits that have just been 'moved' lol!

Another amazing dinner on Sunday with roast lamb being served for 7.  I do enjoy having the family round for dinner, we always have plenty to laugh about and I end up eating way to much!

I've wanted to add more brighter colours to my outfits, and one colour that's missing is green.  It's not a shade I choose to wear, but think it might suit my colouring ... I have hazel eyes so when I do pick it I often get nice compliments.  When I was invited to style some Cotton Traders items I immediately added this stunning green cardigan to my list.  Have you noticed it's all about cardigans recently?  Plenty of ladies styling them back-to-front or doing buttons up different ways, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give that a try.
But today I'll share the basic way to wear it.

Styling my Salamander Shirt with Vivaia Mules - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
Hope you are well.

Apologies for being so late today, the wind played havoc with my photos and it's put me all behind, that and the fact I've been suffering with a cough, cold and sore throat this week - not Covid as I had that about three weeks ago and sailed through it!  The gran-kids have all had coughs & colds so it was inevitable that I would catch something.  It's been awful though and I can't remember the last time I felt so ill with a cold, it's also turned into Laryngitis, so I've a squeaky, nearly non-existent voice (which caused a funny 'problem' when collecting an in-store delivery) & is driving me mad - I hate being unwell!

So my funny story started when I went to collect an item I'd bought on-line from New Look.  I hadn't received the confirmation email to say it was in, but because I'd gone over to collect another item from the toy shop nearby I thought I'd see if it was there.  With a squeaky voice and a perspex partition I asked for the item, showing my phone which had the reference number on and gave my name - the girl said she'd just seen the package, found it and gave it to me.  Off I went with this bag, that did seem rather bigger than I had anticipated, but figured maybe I'd had something else in the basket which I'd paid for too!  I got home and finally got round to opening the parcel, it wasn't a pair of trousers I'd ordered, but a few other bits, that were definitely for a younger - slimmer person.  I looked at the name, which coincidentally had my niece's maiden name on it but thought she'd use her married name so didn't think it would be her's.
I rang the store to explain and was told that the parcel did belong to my family member and she would arrange collection from me!  My parcel hadn't arrived and is there now - I'm not making another trip over there yet, I'll go when I'm feeling a bit better.  
Moral of the story ... check the name on the bag when you get it - mistakes happen, check the correct reference number and name of the person you're giving the bag to. Lol

Mummabstylish is now starting the birthday season, with two this week already, I'm trying to stay one step ahead by getting cards and sorting gifts out, but I'm sure that won't last and I'll be buying last minute like normal ... ha ha ha.

March Review.

Morning my lovely friends.
How are you all?
Cold, that's my word of the week!  I've been absolutely freezing, how about you?  I was saying to my daughter I expect weather like this in Jan and Feb, but after having a few lovely sunny days this cold snap was the last thing I wanted or expected!  The wind has been blowing such chilly weather all I really want to do is hole up inside watching TV and eating crap!!!  Let's hope a warmer climate it on it's way, but as it's the Easter holidays, I'm sure that wont happen!

So as it's be start of a new month, shall we see what the March looked like for Mummabstylish?
March Review.

Back in the beginning of March I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of another grandchild. Our beautiful little Kimberley was born nearly two weeks late!  All safe and sound now and I've had plenty of cuddles.
I was also styling some gorgeous outfits and here's the first beauty of the bunch.
A dark floral dress caught my eye on the Dorothy Perkins website. I clicked the button and it arrived after a couple of days, here's how I styled it and all the details about it - love the bright Spring vibes it gives off and with the vest it's made more suitable for Winter weather.

An Everyday Look - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hiya my friends.
How's you week going?
Not much to report from the past few days, been helping with the school run, seeing the grand-kids, going to gym classes and generally just chilling out.  Hubby has been rather busy in the garden - you see we have plans for a two new builds on our property - it's a big plot with a really old house on it and loads of grass (hence I'm always cutting it and moaning about who needs lots of grass).  So he's been building a hard-standing for all the materials we will need, plus he's tidied up the area I'm calling a patio.  We have a lovely set of rattan furniture and it will look super on the new area until the new house is built. 

So with no shopping recently I've been shopping my wardrobe and wearing old faithfuls.  Do let me know what you think of my look today, you've seen all the pieces before, but maybe not in this way.

There's nothing more feminine than frills on an outfit!

Style Not Age are Iris Apfel Inspired.

Hi there my friends.
Do hope you've had a super weekend - I certainly have with the icing on the cake being a big family roast at my daughters house to celebrate Mother's Day with all the family attending.  My mum came too which was marvellous.  We had roast turkey and all the extras, I even had a frozen red cabbage left over from Christmas and my son-in-law made his own pigs-in-blankets - yum yum and totally full up now.  So the rest of the week will be back calorie counting to compensate for my 'pigging out' on Sunday!


With it being the last Monday of the month it's time the latest installment from the ladies of Style Not Age.
With this months theme falling into the hands of Hilda she gave us the tasty yet tricky prompt of ...

Inspired by Iris Apfel.

There's a new collaboration in town between Iris Apfel and H & M.  I'm excited to see this up close and personal, so will be paying a visit to my local store toute suite.  Iris, who's pattern mixing is second to none, pairs flashy prints with feather boas, bangles, beads, beads and more beads.  She wears statement round glasses too, these are here signature so you'll never forget who she is! 
These looks aren't for everyone, but will certainly make you stand out from the crowds. Do share if you've seen the new edit and if you've bagged an unusual garment or two. 

Well I can confirm that this proved to be 100% a tricky title for me.  I didn't want to buy anything new as I figured I had plenty in my wardrobe to complete the look and so I set about styling my copy with enthusiasm.  I have to add it's not my most favourite look and I probably won't be repeating it, but it was interesting to try!

Jumpsuit Joy from Nomads Clothing - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning everyone.
Hope you are well.
Nearly the end of March can you believe it!  The weather has been lovely recently, really quite warm on some days, so much so I wore a dress with my legs out the other day!  Had to quickly reach for the fake tan though, I really need to get on the sunbed I think!

The grandchildren have been filling my days this week, and tonight I have two for a sleep-over.  They are staying for the day tomorrow so I'm planning on taking them to the kids soft play center so they can let off a bit of steam.  I can get a coffee there and watch them play, although as they're still quite young I'm sure nanny will have to join in and play with them. 😉

Going back to the warm weather we've been having, I though it might be time to talk about proper Spring dressing like this new jumpsuit I was gifted from Nomads Clothing.  One of my favourite things about warmer weather is wearing less layers, I do hate bulky jumpers and and thick coats and adore wearing thinner jumpers and jackets.

Black and White with a Splash of Fiery Orange!

Hi there my friends.
Hope you're all doing well.
As I said last week the weekend was a quiet affair.  Didn't get up to much and even my ballet exam was postponed for a couple of weeks due to a Covid outbreak for teachers and a few pupils.  I do admit to being rather pleased to have the extra practice, I think I need it to be honest!

I looked after my grandson on Sunday, just for a couple of hours before going to the local for dinner. Neither me or hubby felt like cooking, so David suggested going out to eat and as you can imagine I jumped at the chance - any reason not to cook works for me ... lol!

I'm always on the lookout for a charming dress and when I saw this in the Dorothy Perkins sale I though why not?  As it was a mere £15 I popped it into my online shopping basket and home it came to me!

Once it arrived I didn't really like the look, so it might go back, do let me know what you think my friends.

Mother's Day Ideas - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Morning my friends.
How are you?
After my busy weekend it's been nice to have a quieter week.  I've been to the gym and apart from that I've basically stayed at home doing 'catching up bits', a bit of ironing and generally tidying up - it's been quite therapeutic really! I'm not out at the weekend so it'll be good to have a takeaway and watch an exciting film or two.  I do have a ballet exam on Saturday afternoon, but that will only be about a quarter of an hour and will be over in a flash!  

We do have another special day emerging on the horizon though as the weekend after hosts Mother's Day.  I try to combine being with the children with seeing my mum, we either go out for a meal or have a roast at home with everyone giving a helping hand - not sure what the plan will be this year, but fingers crossed I wont have to cook ... ha ha.

I'm always a very lucky lady on special days like this and every year I get beautiful cards, lovely messages and thoughtful gifts, so today I thought it might be helpful to share some ideas of what to buy the special women in your life.

Dining at The Ritz.

Morning my friends.
Have you had a super weekend?
I've had a really busy one.
On Friday I was in London with my husband and son for another presentation at Waterman's Hall.  This was for winning the Doggett's Coat and Badge race last year - you can read all about it on this post.
I wore a dress that was featured on the blog a while back and the black and white shirt dress looked good even though we'd had to travel in the rain! 
Saturday was a very slow day due to mixing my drinks.  I'm the one who always preaches to the kids not to mix drinks and there I was doing the very thing I shouldn't have!  I did pay for it the next day and even went back to bed to try and get over my hangover!  Will I ever learn to say no to the last drinks? Lol.

Sunday was a different story, I woke early and popped into town to try and get something to wear yesterday.  I did come home with two dresses, you can see I picked this pretty cornflower blue Spring dress to wear even though it also rained yesterday too!  I'll be featuring the second on the blog later in the week so I hope you'll stop by to see it.

With lots of charming Spring tea dresses, brightly coloured trousers and some tempting jumpers I was spoilt for choice.

Chocolate and Leopard Print - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my friends.
How you all doing?

Well I'm on cloud nine.
You may have seen on Instagram that finally my grand .... daughter has arrived!  Yes a girl to even up the numbers.  Not only that my granddaughter is over the moon about having a sister to love and spoil.  She's only 7 and has a cousin that she adores (she likes the boy cousins she likes as well) but wanted a sister to share the laughs and special times with ... now she has her wish. 💕

I looked after the three of them whilst they were in hospital and it certainly does keep you on your toes, I was shattered and wonder how I managed to bring up 5 of my own!!! Well I was a lot younger then, lol!

February Review.

Morning all.
Another busy weekend for me.  
Dancing on Friday evening and dancing on Saturday night too!  You see I was invited to a Ladies Night, which is a dinner dance to celebrate wives of the Freemasons. I had an invite to this splendid occasion and it was so nice to get dressed up in a long dress enjoy a dinner with drinks and a bit of dancing too.
Funnily enough my dancing instructor and his wife were both present at the dinner, however the evening didn't have ballroom style dancing just normal mum and dad dancing ... lol!

Sunday we had a small roast with some of the kids, we're all on tenterhooks awaiting the very late arrival of our newest addition to the family.  Hopefully baby will arrive in the next two days ... 🤞

As it's the beginning of March you'd stopped by just in time to see my catch up post from the past few weeks.  More commonly known as the February Review.

Whilst skiing at the beginning of the month I was pleasantly surprised to share a product to enhance my hair.  I've always had dark hair, that doesn't need much attention, however the shampoo and conditioner enhances it even more.  Do stop by the blog to read more about these fantastic Vegan friendly products and the other products they offer.

Lilac & Orange Dress - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there.

Such sad news this week, my heart goes out to the people of Ukraine, and I hope there will be a safe and speedy conclusion to what's happening. 💙💛

Have you had a good week?  I'm STILL anticipating the arrival of my grandchild.  My daughter, as you can imagine, is pulling her hair out.  Baby should be here by next week though, so I'll let you know my friends. X

Well the end of February did have some lovely weather and it almost felt Spring like here, alas that didn't last and we've experience drizzle since the beginning of March.  I know we've not had much rain over the past few months, but it was just starting to feel like Spring was in the air ... lol!

Florals are always in fashion, and what about dark florals?  Well they are too.  I have plenty of flowery garments in my wardrobe and love pairing them with all sorts.  However the dress I'm sharing with you today has such a big flowery print over it, I'm only thinking of styling it with plain accessories.  I want the pattern to shine through so it can be appreciated for what it is ... big and bold, lilac and orange, moody but still sexy.

If I were a Handbag for Style Not Age.

Good morning my friends.  
How are you?
All good here, just had a wonderful weekend with the family.

Did you see my IG on Friday?  Well my youngest son did the most amazing thing.  He's been growing his hair for the last couple of years, with the end goal to donate his locks to the Little Princess Trust.  They use the hair to create wigs for children who've lost their hair due to cancer or another condition.
I have to say I'm hugely proud of him and what he's done.  He's now completely bald!  Do pop over to see him, and maybe even make a donation!

I'm also waiting for the arrival of my grandchild, (unless they arrived since I edited this post) I'm so excited and full of wonder as to whether we're blessed with a boy or a girl and what they will look like.
I'll keep you informed my friends.

Today is the last Monday of the month, which means it's time to take a look at what the ladies from the Style Not Age  group have been styling.
This month it's been Anna's turn to give us a prompt and she went with quite a teaser .....

"If I were a Handbag..."

I did find this one rather hard at first and couldn't come up with anything, bit silly I know as I have so many handbags to my name.  I finally realised a handbag really does emulate a person.  You see I've always wanted to be one of those people who have a small and neat bag with little compartments and everything in the right place.  I even bought one of those inner bags so everything can be transferred from bag to bag, but the sizes never worked for me.  I've come to the conclusion I'm a big-chuck-it-all-in kind of bag person.  I know it's in there I just have to find it. I'm the lady with everything in her bag.  Always have a tissue, pen, hair band, tampon (when needed) and the odd safety pin and sticky sweet! Lol.

To be totally honest I do love a leather bag, there's something about the smell isn't there.  I was chuffed to receive this beauty I'm styling for today's post - it's very me and you can find out more about it later!

My Confident Outfit - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello and thanks for stopping by my blog today.
Appreciate you joining me.

You find me a very impatient MummaB today, you see my eldest daughter's baby was due yesterday and as of yet nothing has happened!  You can imagine she's just about had enough now - especially as her other babies were early!  She's tried the hot curry and raspberry leaf tea, so next I think she should try jumping up and down ... lol!

Talking about up and down - I've been actually enjoying my keep fit classes recently, seems I've turned a corner and don't ache as much afterwards - my stamina has also improved and I think my skiing break has helped that, I was on the go every day whilst away.  I've also been following a calorie counting diet - you literally count everything you eat and stick to a certain amount each day - it's surprising how easy I can get carried away with the odd biscuit and snack throughout the day.  I did follow the keto diet (you may recall I lost 2 stone on that) but just couldn't get back into it.  So I'm on day 4 and I’m pleased to say so far so good, it's more about when you can eat rather than what you can't, and that makes a huge difference to the mindset of losing weight.  Do tell me if you have any secrets to losing weight!

So without any more deviations, let me run you through my look of the day.

Monochrome Tan Outfit.

Hi everyone, how you all doing?
Hope you've survived Storm Eunice.
It's been a blustery few days, and I've been laying low and not venturing out - taking notice of the experts by staying indoors and not venturing out unless absolutely necessary.  Have you been affected by the storm?  Hope you're staying safe.

It was a funny day on Friday, as I said before I didn't go out.  Fortunately didn't need to.  I didn't even go dancing on Friday night - I was about to text I wasn't going when I got a message from the teacher to say they'd decided to cancel the class to keep them and everyone else safe.  I have to admit even though I was worried about driving I really would have loved to have been there, it left me rather restless.  I couldn't settle and kept just walking about!  Does anything unusual leave you with a different attitude?

Saturday was a little better and the weather replicated my mood - it was sunny but still cold in the morning, so hubby and I went out to collect a few bits from town.  I had my grandson over for a sleepover on the evening - his sister came over in the week so Saturday was his turn.  He was an angel and I'm not just saying that - when kids are on their own, they act like different children don't they.  He did everything I asked and was such a joy to have around.  I didn't want him to leave, but then I don't want any of them to go really!

Sunday was the usual roast dinner for the family, and yesterday we had chicken and goose!  I didn't like the latter before, hence the chicken was cooked for those who didn't want it!  All the normal trimmings and a fab day for everyone.  It was very hectic and quite noisy too, but they always have a great time as I do too!  What was your weekend filled with? 

I have to ask have you heard of the latest craze going around.  Me and my friends & family are hooked on Wordle  & it's been keeping me busy for a few weeks now.  Not all the time you understand, just the odd 5 or ten minutes in the day.  You have to guess a 5 letter word and get 6 attemps.  If a correct letter is guessed but in the wrong place the square colours yellow, but if the letter is in the correct place it turns green - you can then try to work out what the word is.  One word a day and I'm hooked.  It's a really good talking point with the family - all trying to work the puzzle out!  Do click the link and have a go - I guarantee you'll be intrigued too.  For the clever people among us, there's a 6 letter word Wordle2 and also four words to find… at the same time .... Quordle - good luck!

Are you a lover of wide leg trousers?  I find them really flattering and have a few pairs to my name.
These are a firm favourite of mine.  Tan is such a wearable colour so it was a no-brainer to go for a monochrome look.

Random Acts of Kindness Day - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello my friends.
Thanks so much for joining me today on what is Random Acts of Kindness Day.
What is a RAoKD you might ask, well let me give you a little insight.

Random Acts of Kindness Week takes place for one week each year, always taking place in mid-February.  It's a week dedicated to kindness and taking that extra, conscious step to brighten somebody's day.

It was created by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation with the intention of encouraging more harmony and kindness between people by offering thoughtful gestures of kindness, no matter how big or small.  A Random Act of Kindness could be surprising a colleague with coffee and a bagel, complimenting somebody on a job well done or placing a funny note in your child's lunch box.  There are so many ways that you can join in, spread some kindness and positivity, and possibly make someone's day!


I wanted to participate and surprise someone with a random act of kindness too.  In the past I've heard of things like paying for the person behind's toll, paying for shopping for someone in a store and also paying for fuel at the petrol station.  I got my thinking hat on and with the help of hubby decided to purchase a lottery ticket for the next person at the till.  The cashier was really interested both with the special day and my blog, but when I asked her to hand the lottery ticket to the next person, she thought she might not be able to help!!!!  Not sure why, so I decided to hand the ticket to a lady near me in my local Sainsburys.  She was so shocked, but very happy and I hope her ticket is a winner.  I wont even know if it is because I didn't ask her name.  I hope she continues the trend and does something kind for someone else.

Let me give you a little insight as to how I knew about this special day.  I was very kindly offered this lovely lingerie set and with that came this sustainable wash bag which has been specially designed to keep my new pieces in tip top condition.

Styling an Elegant Satin Blouse From Zara.

Happy Valentines day to you.
I hope you have a wonderful day, and get totally spoiled (if you actually celebrate this day).

Hubby and I don't celebrate this day in particular, I feel every day should be a special day and hubby feels the same too.  He treats me special in other ways ... like cooking a lovely meal or surprising me with an gift or two. I treat him well by letting him watch sports on the telly when he wants ... 😂 
However I have to add this year we've started a date night.  We've only managed one so far.  We had a meal in one of our favourite restaurants with drinks after in a local bar.  It was really nice to just go out together and talk.  Something we always did when the kids were young but since we've had no ties we've let it slip.  I have more planned for the future, and among some of the 'dates' are escape room, cinema and going to the theatre ... ( I would even go to a football match).

So let me tell you about me weekend, Friday night at ballroom we started learning the Samba.  I bloody loved it!  The teacher put on some really inspiring music and I just danced my heart out.  I wonder what I actually looked like, but I didn't care.  Saturday was lovely and sunny so hubby and I tackled the hedge.  You may recall I often talk about this monster job, but feel I've conquered it!  We cut it down to a more manageable height so it can be trimmed when it's not too tall - so much easier.  We generally tidied up some of the garden, but I need a new mower to get on top of the grass, it's way too long and needs a good cut - so that's next on the agenda.

Sunday I had Max!  My grandson came to stay as his mum and dad went to a wedding.  God isn't it hard to get back to something that you did years ago without thinking about!  We still had a family dinner, and I had the help of my other daughters which made life with Max so much easier - many thanks to them. 💖 Trouble is I get so attached to them and hate when they have to leave.  I'm sure it won't be too long until I see him again - he's only 5 mins away.

Do you love a pretty blouse?  I certainly do.  Whilst on holiday in Abu Dhabi I just had to go do a bit of shopping.  I came home with three shirts, this patterned satin version has been teamed with skirts and jeans already, and with an array of tones within this print I knew it would pair well with plenty I already have in my wardrobe.

Salamander Shirt in Pretty Candy Stripe Pink & White - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hiya everyone, how are you?

I'm definitely down in the dumps after getting back from Skiing, I almost need another holiday to get over it.  I'm working my way through the washing pile and surprisingly did see the bottom for a brief moment yesterday!  I'm not sure whether to put all my gear away just in case we manage a sneaky break away for a weekend in the snow before the season finishes.  

I've not been shopping either, which also puts me in a sad mood - but it's a bit early for Spring pieces to arrive and I'm waiting for them to appear before I get shopping. New clothes always make me happy, figuring how to style them, when they will make an appearance & what occasion will I be able to show them off.  
So you can imagine how thrilled I was to receive some super beautiful shirts from Salamander Shirts*, and I'm impressed with the quality and styles I got.  This is one of my favourites.  Obviously I chose pink - candy pink & white stripes to be exact and will look good with smart trousers as well as jeans like I'm showing you today.

January Review.

Morning my friends.
How's things going?
Back to earth with a big bump and lots of washing.  That has to be the worse thing about going on holiday, but it's so worth it!
It's a slow process to get back into normal life isn't it?  I've had such a good time skiing, and I always hate coming home.  I'm rather late with the January Review, and hope you'll forgive me.  

What did you get up to last week, any new purchases?  I'll surprise you by saying I didn't buy any clothes whilst away, just didn't see many boutiques in Sestriere.  So I'll leave it a few weeks until I venture to our shops to see what the new styles are.  I have to admit I can't wait for Spring to arrive, the new styles and colours are always a welcomed addition aren't they?

Let's take a look at my styles last month shall we!

My grey and off-white outfit proved quite popular at the beginning of the month,  It was a look that I'd seen on many a fashionable lady so wanted to emulate the look - think my grey wide leg trousers, grey roll neck and off white coat looked great with my ecru boots - you can find out more about this look if you pop back over.
