Yet again life has got in the way of the blog. When is it ever not busy??? These pictures were taken weeks ago and I thought I wouldn’t be able to use them but the top is actually still in stock at Next.  There’s no getting away from statement sleeves at the moment and I think they make an everyday jeans and trainers type outfit a lot more interesting.  There is, however, a downside in that they can get in the way if you’re doing a bit of housework or cooking. My solution? Put your feet up and deliveroo (is that a verb).

I also want to point out the necklace which I think looks really high end but is, in fact, from H&M.  And the belt was my Mother’s Day present to myself (thanks kids). Not cheap, but I’ve already worn it so much that cost-per-wear it’s a bargain.

I probably wear more black than any other colour but with these flashes of white this is a perfect outfit for brightening up yet another dull summer day. It’s also a good excuse to reinvent my trusty O bag with a new floral trim and white patent handles.

The second of my new jackets for summer is this lightweight khaki utility style jacket from Zara.  So on trend this season and I think the khaki works really well with white jeans.  The jeans are from Gap and had massive turn ups when I bought them but I had them shortened to this ankle grazing length which is far more flattering.

When I saw that a new accessories shop was opening just down the road I was obviously interested –  a girl can’t have enough bags, right? And O Bag Factory is bag heaven.  Its unique concept means that you can customise not only bags but watches and sunglasses too. I bought a standard O Bag in rock and added the Murmasky faux fur trim in natural. I couldn’t decide between the faux leather handles in gold or silver so I bought them both and change them according to my outfit. I’ll be going back to customise my bag for spring/summer and will probably have to pick up some shades too…

The jumpsuit was another trend that I wasn’t sure about for someone pushing fifty, but when I found this reduced to £9.99 in the Zara sale I knew I had to give it a go. And I love it. So easy to wear with a white cami, my wear-with-everything Adidas Superstars and a cute mini bag and I think it would look just as fab with heels and some statement earrings for a night out.

Yet another trend I can embrace without spending any money. I bought these Diesel  Louvely jeans back in the noughties when I saw photos of Kate Moss wearing them.  I think they’re a really flattering cut and work as well with trainers for a day of sightseeing in Paris as they would dressed up with heels for a night out. And I LOVE the belt – another hand painted work of art from Marion Cheung.

Now that March is here and Spring is starting to make its presence felt,  it’s time to find an alternative to my much loved ankle boots. These Adidas Superstar shell toe trainers are so fresh and bright they lift any outfit and will see me through until Summer.
