Some New Purchases & WIWT

Happy Saturday ladies.

Before I show you what I'm wearing today I've got a few new purchases to share with you.  First off for those of you who follow me on Instagram you may recall this outfit I posted last week when we were off out for our son's celebratory birthday meal.

My Midlife Fashion, marks and spencer super cropped wide leg trousers, french collection frilled sleeve top, embroidered clutch, topshop venus stud sandals

Top - French Connection
Bag - Mango
Culottes - Marks & Spencer
Sandals - Venus £52

And the eagle eyed amongst you may have spotted I was wearing some new culottes - these babies below, which were love at first sight.  Super wide, fitted on the hip with pockets & a lovely crepe fabric.  Perfect for late summer but I'm also planning on wearing these in the Autumn teamed with a simple crew neck, trainers & biker & Winter with block heel ankle boots.  But be warned although they're described as cropped I'm wearing the shorter length version & I'm 5'7"!

Marks and Spencer Crepe Super Cropped Wide Leg Culottes

Talking of Marks & Spencer I've not been totally convinced that the loafer trend was for me but when I spotted these at such a fab price I thought they were worth a shot & I can't tell you how comfortable & gorgeous they are.  A real steal at the price & I'm hoping that with pop socks they'll also be ok for Autumn/Winter.  Plus with Marks' insolia flex they're incredibly comfy & less bulky looking than the loafer shoe.  If you're tempted I'd definitely recommend clicking the button sooner rather than later as I'm convinced they're not going to hang around......I'm just hoping they'll also introduce some more colours.

Marks and Spencer Snaffle Trim mule sandals

Now we all know I love a pleat or frill & with both set to still be big next season I just couldn't resist this pretty shirt.  I just love the detailing, it falls lovely & will be so easy to style with jeans, paired back jewellery & statement shoes/boots that there was no way this wasn't coming home with me.

Topshop Pleat Bib Long Sleeve Shirt

Finally I'd featured this shirt on a previous post & felt the urge to investigate & again its a keeper.  Love the star print, the weight of the fabric is just right plus it will fit perfectly into my winter wardrobe (it looks much nicer on than it does below).

Mango star printed shirt

Back to today & I'm going for another monochrome look & wearing my new culottes with my polka dot lace cami teamed with a boucle stripe jacket.
