"Timeless everyday style"

Midlife Loves

OOTD - Stripes & Leopard Print

Yeah it's Friday!!!!  Another busy day ahead for me but the start of an amazing weekend....hubby's birthday today so lots of celebrating & a celebratory meal this evening, then a day out with my Mum tomorrow to celebrate Mother's Day & of course Mother's Day on Sunday so all in all a lovely few days to look forward to :-)

Here's what I'm wearing today, & having taken delivery of my new baby I just HAD to build today's outfit around my new Boden bag, which despite saying there was a waiting time of a week arrived within 3 days of ordering :-)  Don't forget the up to 40% sale ends Sunday if you're tempted!!!!




Mac - Massimo Dutti
Sweatshirt - Marks & Spencer
Bag - Boden
Jeans - Zara
Bracelet - J Crew
Ballet Pumps - Brought in Majorca


And if you fancy stealing my style here's my suggestion.


Breton & Leopard Print


Mac - Zara £79.99
Jeans - Zara £29.99
Bracelet - J Crew £95
Ballet Pumps - Next £22


Have a great Friday.....my mouth's already drooling at the thought of some wonderful food this evening....made all the more tastier by the fact that I won't be cooking not to mention the fab company of my two boys :-)

See you in the morning.

  2. How is the strap on the Mya? I've heard a few people complain that it's a bit flimsy for the price? I was tempted at £66 seeing as I originally pre-ordered it at just 20% off!

  5. LOVE the jeans - I need a third pair (!) of skinny boyfriend jeans, I KNOW I will be living in them again in the summer (as I have in the Winter)

    1. Aww thanks Lynne....I'm trying to get more comfortable with the pictures but it's soooo much easier being able to cut my head off!!! I'm going to try on the days hubby is working from home to continue with including my head as it means I've got someone on hand to take the pictures.....as usually when hubby & son leave I'm still in my running gear & that's not a great look!!!

  11. Just in awe of how shiny and healthy your hair looks - it's lovely. And I love the full length shots of you as well (rich coming from me who chops her head off most of the time but honestly it is so much easier).

    Love the whole outfit - something I could definitely see myself in and replicating.

    1. Thanks Sue & it's so much easier chopping your head off isn't it. Plus at least looking in a mirror you can see what the picture is going to look like.....more practise needed.....but I'll get there!!
