Knits With Added Cool

A bit of a grey Sunday so … Be bold. Be bright.  This chunky knit from Superdry will lift your mood and keep you cosy even if you aren’t sipping gluwein on a mountain top.  Its perfect to pair with jeans or skinny trousers and has room enough to disguise that post Christmas bulge!xx


The One That Didnt Get Away

I have been away so no bla-bla blogging for a while but am now back  and hitting the last few days of the sales looking for a bargain and this fabulous puffa jacket from MaxMara isnt going to get away! With a flattering wrap around collar, this shaped jacket just  reeks style.  Definitely something to perk up a grey January day and stop us over 50 somethings from feeling frumpy -and yes I have bought it! This is getting to be an expensive blog …..xx

Aspen to Accrington

For a bit of apres ski style on the high street, this coat in the sale at Zara certainly has everything you need for high altitude dressing.  With a flattering faux fur collar to soften the face it definitely looks more Aspen than Accrington but no need to wait for the slopes, a cold January day is excuse enough to get out there and look a fabulous over 50 something! see you next blog xx

Miss. Moneypenny

After all the repeats of James Bond movies over the holidays, trying on this pencil skirt and animal print top in the sale from Mint Velvet made me feel very Miss. Moneypenny!  Lets just hope that when James returns from his latest mission he needs to pop into the office for a bit of dictation ……I’m sure he’ll appreciate the more mature lady and her fabulous fashion sense for the 50 somethings! xx
