Too Hot For Jumpers, Too Cold For T-shirts!!


You know when it is too hot for jumpers, and too cold for t-shirts!?!

Yes?

Well that!!

It has been so mild over the last few days, not that I'm complaining, I am really hoping the cold weather stays away until we can find someone to mend our gas boiler!!

Off to do some shopping in Nottingham at the weekend I decided to wear a nice warm jumper for the mile walk to the train station as it was a bit fresh.

Only thing is the trains/shops/shopping centres are so nice and warm...

You have to keep taking the jumper off then keep putting it on again... 


What I wore~

Jumper ~ Primark
Scarf ~ c/o School Gates Style
Jeans ~ Abercrombie and Fitch
Boots ~ Barratts
Bag ~ Primark

Now the school holidays and inset days are over its back to the gym today...

I have been so lazy for the last week 4 weeks!!

How To Wear Posh Wellies : Over 40 Style...


With a heart patterned dress, a chunky warm cosy cape and some bright yellow tights...


I wore this outfit in the school holidays on a trip to Meadowhall for a meal out at Frankie and Benny's. 

Initially we planned a nice day out shopping and looking for Christmas Ideas, but unfortunately our Gas boiler has broken and it put a bit of a damper on the day and a cap on spending any money. 

This outfit cheered me up though, loving my new posh wellies and they went together great with my bright yellow tights.


The morning before our day out, a man can to give us a quote on how much it would be to fix our boiler. 

He said he couldn't mend it and we need a new boiler putting in. 

Asking how much it would cost to fit one he said 'I will pop down later with a quote'. 

Nearly a week later still no quote...

Makes me wonder~Do people ever keep their word? Who can you trust? Do people care when you have a family to keep warm and clean? Do people want work?

They have forecast -4 degrees weather this week, hopefully not or I will be walking around the house in these boots to keep warm. 

Fingers crossed we find someone decent this week, who can help..


What I Wore~

Dress ~ Primark

Cape ~ Primark

Handbag ~ Primark

What I think of the Posh Wellies...

I am loving these posh wellies from Lotus shoes.

They feel high quality and fit true to size. 

They feel nice and comfortable to wear.


I wore them all around Meadowhall today with my boot socks on and they felt great. Would I have wore ordinary wellies around Meadowhall!?! No,,, but these are posh ones and felt very stylish. 

Not only glamorous and fashionable but most importantantly to me, very comfortable. 

Perfect for cold, rain and snowy weather too!

These boots will be great for winter.

These will style up great with skinny jeans and chunky jumpers for a nice casual look on Autumn walks. 

I am now almost looking forward to some snow and rain, just to try my new boots out!!

What do you think?

Love them as much as me?

Peach Blossom Spring Dress : Joe Browns Dress Review...

When we were on holiday a few weeks ago I received a email from the lovely people at Joe Browns. They asked me if I would like to style one of their beautiful and unique items of clothing from their new Autumn/ Winter range. Yes please, I love their collections ..I picked this fabulous vintage floral style Peach blossom peach spring dress. The new in range of Shangri-La and Sovereignty are beautiful and inspiring collection. 


Where does the time go!?!  I can not believe we celebrated our 18 year wedding Anniversary last week. Eek 18 years have just flown by. As we had just come off our holidays we decided to leave it till last weekend to have a night to ourselves and go on a date night <3...


Luckily for me, my son took delivery of my beautiful dress when we were away. So on our date night I went out in style...

Here is my Autumn/Winter wish list in how I would style this dress up with other items from Joe Brown in cooler weather~


Brown  leggings | Peach Blossom Springs Dress | Brown leather riding boots | Mustard chunky knit cardigan | Tan X-body bag...

I am always looking for style tips too..

How would you wear this dress in cooler months to come?
