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?

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


This is quite an adventurous outfit for me, I've never gone for bright bag and footwear in different colours!  I really like it! What do you think though?  I had this idea for a while to pick out both pink and green from the dress. I've worn it with cream boots and pink jacket before, which you may have seen, but this combination really does stand above it!  I picked the dress up in the M & S sale for a bargain price of £17!  They really do have amazing sales and I always find a bargain or two when it's sale time - are you a big sale shopper?  The shirt dress is always in fashion as they're just so easy to wear and compliment most figures, the midi is a good length for me and I feel very glamorous in an outfit that's put together like this.  I now wear items to create contrast and texture, it's nice to see something different each time you look.


I have LOADS of bags that would be great partners for my dress and shoes, but I wanted to show my new Teddy Blake bag off for the stunner she is.  I have to admit I was thrilled when Teddy Blake asked if I'd like to chose one from their website, they have so many I really was like a kid in a sweet shop!  I knew from the off I'd pick a pink bag, but which one was my issue.  Eventually I went back to my first choice (funny how we do that) and the Lola Palmelatto 12"* was decided.  I can honestly say it's even better in real life than it looks on the screen and it look pretty good on there my friends.


Teddy Blake bags are made by Italian craftsman who create stunning designer bags without the luxurious price tag - the Lola is offered at $409 which is a huge saving of 41%! I love everything about this pink beauty, from the quality leather to the gold hardware.  The bag is a sturdy style using semi rigid calf leather which is grained therefore creating an interesting look.  It's big enough to hold everything a girl could need & has complimentary suede interior and two zipped pockets.  It has a small and neat handle adding a glamorous feel and also a longer adjustable shoulder strap for hands-free shopping trips and a more casual vibe.


You can save up to 70% on traditional luxury.

Luxury can be affordable. Using the same Italian pelleteries to handpick our leather and the same factories to create our bags as expensive luxury brands.  With Teddy Blake there is No compromise on the quality of your leather bag - and there in No charge on the label. Enjoy the Teddy Blake experience Today!


My bag is both fashionable and functionable and I know will give me years of joy.  It's a worthwhile pick, but with so many beautiful bags and colours it was a really hard decision.  My wish list is getting longer by the day ... lol!


Did you see the shoes?  I've wanted green shoes for absolutely ages and had to find some with this fancy tie detail - I found just the thing on MissGuided and ordered them for just under £30 and got a discount for my first order making them just over £20 with delivery.  I have to admit to trying different ways to tie them up as some ways just slipped down my legs - lol. I've been watching TikToks that share how best to style them - is this a fashion you'd follow?
