June Review

Hi there, how are you?
Hope your weekend went well, did you do anything exciting?
Just a stay-at-home weekend for me. I spent the whole of Saturday in the garden trimming the hedge, it’s still a mammoth job and boy did I ache after stopping late afternoon, (with still more to do) but I’m impressed with what I’d got done! 
On Sunday, typically UK weather and it rained all day, bit of a godsend really as I didn’t fancy more trimming so will save that for one day in the week when I’m more rested!
I cooked a Spanish chicken with roast potatoes, coleslaw, asparagus, salad and corn on the cob. Which, I must say, was very tasty, it’s nice to have a slightly different dinner once in a while, I’d hate to say I was bored with a traditional roast. I’ve got a busy week as I’m out to lunch with a friend Tuesday and have a birthday Afternoon Tea with some other friends on Wednesday. Praying it’s going to be nice weather for both, it’s not nice walking out in the rain is it!

They had a lemon theme this season and I’m sure you’ll find many styles you love as do I. 

June Review.

For the first post in June I was delighted to feature some pieces from the stunning new collection from Bonmarche. They had a lemon theme this season and I’m sure you’ll find many styles you love as did I. 

My next post featured these striking sandals
and my lilac sundress. This isn’t a shade I wear much of, but with the support I’ve received over this look I might have to change my mind!

Do you have a liking for culottes or short trousers? I feel right at home in mine and you can see the full story of my pale blue beauties over on the blog here. 

I shared some holiday outfits next from my recent trip to Majorca. I mixed the outfits up this time and wore dresses and both my co-odds. Have a look back and let me know what your favourite look was. 

I’m a big supporter of anything Broderie Anglais so had to show this white stunner off again on its own post, you can view it in more detail and also find links to grab your own!

June Style not Age post next.
This month was my turn and I chose Dreamy Dresses!  Here’s was I wore and if you checkout the post here you’ll see what my four friends wore. 

Finally I share a pretty sundress with you. We had amazingly hot weather for a couple of days at the end of June, that might be Summer for us! It’s raining as I write this so my sunny clothes might have to go back into storage! 😂

Thanks for joining me today, much appreciate your support. 
I’ll catch you on Thursday for the new Chicandstylish Linkup. 
Cheerio my friends. X
