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.

Do you wear faux leather?  I bought these chocolate culottes a while ago and have been impressed with the look and feel of them.  You can read all about them on my post featuring my dreamy trousers styled  with this over-sized leopard shirt I bought in Abu Dhabi.

I finally got to enjoy hubby's Christmas present from 2019 next.  Dinner at The Ritz was all I imagined it to be and more ... do have a look at this post, you can see what I ate and more about the dress I wore. X

I've always received some wonderful presents, especially for Mother's Day, so it made perfect sense to share some of my ideas of what to buy that special lady - I know Mother's Day falls on different dates for different countries, so these ideas might help you!

Black and white are an obvious match made in heaven, but how about adding a splash of colour?  I popped my bright and cheerful orange jacket over the top of this pretty satin dress and loved the outcome - do let me know what you think.  What tone would you add to this fabulous combination?

I'm getting ready for Spring to arrive ... hope I don't have to wait too long!  I've been sorting my wardrobe and adding items I need.  This cute jumpsuit arrived at the right time and I managed to get this shot in a window of warm weather the other week.  I love to wear an all-in-one and was hooked on this one from Nomads Clothing from the off!

Inspired by Iris Apfel was the latest challenge for me and my friends from Style Not Age.  I wasn't 100% impressed with my attempt, but the glasses worked well in my interpretation so I'll take that. 

I went down the casual route with my favourite skinny jeans for the last post of March.  I adore wearing these from M & S because they just fit in the right places.  I've been looking to see if they have any other colours, unfortunately mine are a few years old, and they don't seem to have anything similar now - what a shame! But doesn't the jacket pick out the other colours perfectly?  This was a gift from hubby and didn't he do well?  It's ages old, but still looks like new - well done Hobbs.

Many thanks for joining me today, I hope you're having a brilliant start to the new month, fingers crossed the weather improves sooner rather than later!
Catch you on Thursday for the #Chicandstylish #LINKUP.
Cheerio for now. X


  1. I love that black dress and pink jacket outfit! Hope your weather improves soon.

  2. Love the orange jacket with the black and white! Orange is on fire this season! I also love those chocolate collotes. So glad you enjoyed a special treat at the Ritz. May I say your hair looks extra shiny and lovely in that blue dress pic!
    Hope you have a great week!

  3. What a gorgeous month you had even if the weather didn't cooperate! But, the birth of a new granddaughter...lucky you! I think my number has ended at three...but I love them all fiercely!

  4. I'm loving all those gorgeous bright colours on you, Jacqui! It's really cold here in the Algarve too, and we've had a fair amount of rain. Even I've had enough, and I love the cold lol!
