Morning ladies today I'm taking a look at all the new into store loveliness that has hit Marks & Spencer over the last couple of weeks.  But be warned there's lots to get us tempted including the pieces I've been sent by Marks to style, which includes the above outfit.  

As we already know I've a huge weakness for a pretty white top & the one I'm wearing above is no exception.  Loose in style & fit it's ideal for keeping stylish & cool come the warmer weather.  I've styled it above with these cropped kick flare trousers that come in three lengths.  I'm 5'7" & I went for the short so they finished above my ankle bone.  They're perfect for showing off my grey block heeled sandals but will also look great dressed down with trainers or ballet flats.  

In terms of sizing I went for my normal size in both but should you want a closer fit on the top size down.  Also the waistband at the back of the trousers is elasticated so if you're between sizes you should be able to size down in this too. 

I've finished the look with a classic panama, which makes a great accessory during the summer months whether on holiday or back home.  The one I'm wearing is from the men's department as I personally find the fit & style to be true to the classic design.  Plus it comes in 4 different sizes so you should find one to fit all heads.  I went for a medium, which is a good fit in terms of not being too tight or large.

Top Picks, my midlife fashion, marks and spencer, marks and spencer cotton wrap ruffle a line midi skirt, marks and spencer pure cotton ladder trim flared shell top, marks and spencer tiered ditsy print a line maxi skirt, marks and spencer aztec print hand embellished clutch bag, marks and spencer kick flare cropped trousers, marks and spencer handwoven panama hat, marks and spencer frilled asymmetric round neck jumper, marks and spencer floral print a line midi skirt, marks and spencer embroidered long sleeve tunic dress, marks and spencer pure cotton cutwork peasant v neck blouse, marks and spencer cotton blend romantic lace swing midi dress, marks and spencer flared tie back sleeveless maxi dress, marks and spencer floral embroidered shopper bag, marks and spencer cotton blend striped fringe jacket


Before I share the my other couple of looks I also wanted to show you some of the other stunning pieces that have recently hit the stores & online.  Since last Autumn I've really started feeling the maxi skirt love & the three I've featured above are all stunning & each would be perfect styled with a blazer or biker jacket.  As you may know from a previous post this ruffle skirt has already caught my eye & is now hanging up in my wardrobe!

Now I probably don't need to explain why I picked either of the white dresses & think these would look amazing teamed with some gold metallic sandals.  As would the khaki maxi dress - throw on some gold jewellery & I reckon this would look far more expensive than what it actually costs.

For me apart from the classic straw panama another summer 'must have' is an embroidered clutch, which I personally find so useful for adding extra interest to a simple look & they truly come into their own when away on holiday.  Needless to say I couldn't resist this gold & black clutch that should you need it also comes with a shoulder strap, although I shall probably just use it as a clutch.  Nice & lightweight so ideal for packing & also a great size so it will definitely fit all your essentials in.

As you can see I've styled it above with another item Marks have sent & that's this ruffle crew neck knitted top.  This top is ideal for a simple evening look styled with jeans & heels.  A smart fitted top that falls away from the chest down so super flattering plus it conceals a multitude of sins & is true to size.

The final item of clothing also features a few ruffles & I'm actually wearing it today.  I don't know what's come over me but I seem to have found a love for pattern recently & it was certainly love at first sight as soon as I spotted this skirt.  Just perfect for dressing up or down, with flats or heels.  I'm thinking a simple cami when the weather is nice & hot & layered with a t-shirt or 'V' neck & biker/blazer when cooler.

So ladies what do you think?  Do you see anything that's tempting you to get clicking?  I can highly recommend all the pieces I've styled above & if you're tempted to join me in 'clicking that button' on the striped ruffle midi skirt you can see what I think about sizing here.  Plus if you need further temptation then check out the Rosie for Autograph new collection of swimwear & beachwear here.  There's some lovely pieces & in my view it's definitely their strongest swimwear collection to date.  Talking of which anyone seen their latest advert?  I absolute love the idea behind it & it's definitely something I can relate to both in terms of what I wear & in embracing life.  When I watch it, it just makes me want to do something that normally I wouldn't even consider.  How about you?  Is it an advert that strikes a nerve & makes you want to grab life?  If so I'd love to hear.

In the meantime have a lovely day ladies & don't forget to let me know what's caught your eye.  See you in the morning & if you've been eyeing up any of Boden's tops & tees now's the time to shop with 25% off today & tomorrow here, just remember to use discount code 6T2C.
