April Review.

Hello and welcome to my blog on Bank Holiday Monday. 

It’s not really the weather we’re all expecting for the first BH of May. With wind and rain taking centre stage it’s been hard to get into the swing of the spring season let alone wear some lighter clothes!
 I’ve actually been away this weekend and am on my way home from the Isle of Wight now!  I’ll share a dedicated post with you soon to let you have a little insight as to what it’s like on this little island and what I got up to!

It’s the first Monday of the new month so time to take a look at what I got up to in April. 

Welcome to the April Review. 

This dress from Roman has got my name all over it!
I adore the colours as I’m a pink girl at heart. Mauve is one of my favourites too, although it’s not a shade I wear very often or feel it really suits me. Hop over to the post where you can not only find out about this striking mesh dress but find a link to my stunning heels too!

Next up I told you all about this outfit which is one of my favourite looks. I’m all over wide leg trousers and these tan pair have been a real godsend. Checkout the full post here!

Next I showed off what I wore on the steam train for Afternoon Tea with my mum and sister. I wore the ideal suit in a striking bright blue. Do let me know your thoughts on this fab culotte suit!

After being kindly gifted some items from Bonmarché I was delighted to attend the Afternoon Tea at Fortnum and Mason to view the new collection created by David Emanuel, you can see my favourite dress on the blog next!

Another pink dress on the blog & I’m loving the big bold Leo print pattern of this floaty midi dress. I’ve pair some gifted shoes with it and quite honestly could wear these beauties every day! Do let me know your views on my pink number. 💕

What to wear for a night out with friends for the big 60! I opted for a colum knitted dress with a neutral faux leather jacket and cream boots. I’m all over this stunning look. 🖤

Who else likes hearing about new supplements? I’ve been excited to learn about XByX products. I’ve been reviewing supplements aimed at ladies of a certain age and loving how they make me feel. Checkout my post reviewing them. I’m also sharing a stylish two piece lounge suit. 🩵🩵

My final post for the month of April was for the Style not Age challenge. The prompt of April Showers was obviously all about covering up if the rain arrived - which it did quite often. So I shared my vintage trench coat and baseball cap. I’m quite liking this new-to-me outfit but what do you think?

Thank you very much for joining me on this bank holiday. It’s so nice to have you. Do stop by to read about my long weekend on the Isle of Wight. Until Monday have a great time. 
Bye for now. X
