My New Jogger Set - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hello how are you?
Hope you're doing okay.

I'm a very happy Mummabstylish because my new build is underway and starting to look like a house.
The builders have gotten us to first floor level and the next step of steels and floor joists is in the lap of my hubby David.  He's a very talented man and can turn his hand to lots of things.  We've built our own house before and he's also helped build many homes under the help & guidance of a good friend. It's exciting for him to project build our own property and what he doesn't know he finds out and usually ends up doing it very well.  
If you'd like to see the progress so far do follow along on my other IG account purely for the new build in our garden.   I hope you'll agree my enthusiasm is founded!

I've hardly bought any new clothes recently, have you? I've been waiting for the Spring styles to arrive.  I'm excited to see what's going to be included and have yet to see what's creeping into the shops and haven't actually seen anything online either.  Do tell if you've got anything new yet! 
I have, however, bought myself a lovely trouser suit.  It's actually beige!  I know, I know I should be steering away from shades like this, as I don't want to become invisible.  I do have big plans for it though.  I fancy styling it with bright bold accessories like orange or green and have some stunning additions to style it with already.  Do watch out for this one, I'm sure it's going to be a winner.  Until I share it, do let me show off a wonderful jog suit I bought recently, it's from H & M as well!

I've long admired this style from afar.  I've shunned wearing anything young and fashionable like this for fear of looking ... well just wrong!  Anyway I finally decided to get this one from H & M a couple of weeks ago and picked the perfect day to wear it earlier this week when it was a tad warmer with a bit of sunshine to boot. My daughters gave me lots of encouragement too, saying how good it looked on and that I looked like a 'trendy mum/nan' lol!

Stated as a wide leg jogger, It's not a traditional cuffed leg style but has a wide leg that's sits at just the right length on the boot or trainer.  It has a drawstring fastening on the waist which can be cinched in for a more flattering finish, or left looser to fit on the hips for a more relaxed feel.  The length is perfect on me and I figured I could also thread some elastic around the hem which would give it the typical pulled-in-at-the-ankle finish - both are brilliant looks for the season too.  Both top and bottom are still available and priced at £17.99 for joggers and £19.99 for the hoodie a bargain tracksuit if ever I saw one and it's sure to get plenty of wear, I know mine will. 

Now the matching jogger top is also a traditional style, but as it's a more boxy shape that's on trend at the moment. It also lends itself to having layers over or under it -  I wore it recently over a little camisole, but I plan to wear it with my gilet for extra warmth or my cream trench coat on cooler days.

I have to add I'm really pleased with the style of this jogger, it has a drawstring on the bottom of the hooded top and I pulled it in tightly creating a more feminine look.  It balanced out the outfit neatly as did the chunky boots.  I pulled on my cream Deichmann pair that I bought for skiing.  They have a good sturdy sole with a nice heel that's some 3.8 cm high.  Having higher heels on boots, for me, keep them a little less masculine - which I much prefer to wear.  

The cross body bag works brilliantly with this outfit, keeps it nice and casual.  A great look for shopping, running errands or a trip out with the grandkids when you need both hands to get stuck in at the park! Ha ha ha. 🛝
