I think my trusty IPhone camera has had a challenge too far with this pink changing room and a white shirt as I now seem to have acquired a tan any TOWIE star would be proud of!  And this shirt is a real star too -its  from Miss. Selfridge, loose fitting with a flattering scalloped edge, long enough to cover the ‘derriere’ – a real grown-up shirt and perfect to team with jeans, leggings or slim fitting trousers…just wondering if there is any chance of a guest appearance in TOWIE for a tangerine-coloured fiftysomething?xx


Mark Darcy Reindeer Jumper and Me

Ever since Mark Darcy struck a pose with Bridget Jones in his reindeer  jumper, novelty animal knits have had a bad press- but this season they are everywhere from Joseph to Topshop.  So here is a very wearable grown-up version from House of Fraser – with a snowball motif its perfect for the Siberian weather that we are getting at the moment – toasty enough to keep you warm,  yet stylish and fun enough to bring a smile to any fifty something! see you next blogxx

Saturday Night At The Movies

Just casual today – off to the cinema with friends so ….still wearing my jeans …. now realising why I need this blog too as think  I must have a bit of a jeans addiction( promise to get out of them next blog) – I have added a baggy jumper from Phase 8 with a long t-shirt underneath to hid the bum, and my favourite shoes of the moment – animal print Doc Martins – pass the popcorn please!

Am I Reddy?

I’m being brave today so am out in the changing rooms feeling bold, trying on a fab red trench coat from Hobbs.  A colour I would never normally choose to wear but apparently is good for older complexions and I’ve decided that I love it! Good length over trousers, nice belt to clinch in giving a bit of shape – very wearable!

Thanks  for coming shopping with me, Annie xx

Tweedy winter warmer

Tweedy winter warmer Its looking a bit grey and chilly out there so time to warm up. Ive put a tweed vintage looking jacket from Zara over my jeans – nice and casual, slightly fitted but with a bit of length to cover the bottom!

Although we’ve already lived through shoulder pads in the Dallas era, they are back again and this time we might be a bit more grateful for the effect it has on making our hips appear  much slimmer ….
