Fashion and beauty blog for the more mature woman not ready to hang up the high heels yet.



Hi Everyone
How are you all? Anyone in the UK must be wondering when the weather is going to pick up!
I am envious of all my American blogger friends right now! beautiful weather there. I keep seeing all those lovely post, all basking in the sun.
I will be on my holidays soon to "Sunny Scotland" and wanted to get myself some smart shorts. I have lots of regular every day shorts to see me through the summer, so I thought I'd treat myself to some smart ones.

And I have to say I am really pleased with these M&S ones that I bought. See listed below....

Here are some others that I looked at

Mango had some fantastic smart shorts the red ones above £29.99 fantastic colour, a little too high on my waist.You can find them HERE

Totally fell in love with these. Suede is everywhere for AW15 Mango got in a little quicker with these beauties £69.99 HERE

Or more in my price bracket these ones also from mango £44.99 HERE

A pair for you taller ladies out there, a beautiful pastel shade of pink from French Connection, their Sorbet City Shorts are on special offer at the mo for £49.99 instead of £70.00 HERE

Ok not quite shorts but a skort I had to add these for not only are they smart and will go with anything, but the fantastic price £7.00 HERE  Will have to be quick ordering these.

I very nearly bought these as this was the colour I was looking for. These are from Dorothy Perkins £15.00 HERE Sadly they didn't have my size

These M&S  Denim coloured shorts are really well cut. I tried these on and was so tempted , there's a jacket to match these too £25.00

These are the ones I have purchased, comfortable, smart and the perfect colour £29.50 HERE And I love the other colour stocked in this style

A beige colour, of course another wardrobe staple colour. I have to say they are really comfy, and they don't seem to crease easily either.

Getting some decent photos done on the other hand was another matter. The sun would come out, great, put shorts on, take picture. By the time I made it to the only corner of the garden shaded from the wind, it would cloud over, then chuck it down! in out, in out!

Quick take the picture!

Shall we just give up?

Again sun gone in. Five minutes after this is was throwing down massive hail stones! What we do for blogging ?

Shirt = Karen Millen an old favourite
Shorts = M&S
Wedge Sandals F&F current £20.00

Anyone else fed up with the weather? think I need to pack my wellies to go to Scotland? They will look grand with the shorts
