Celebrating Style Link up | Florals And Powder Blue


Hi Everyone
It's been quite a relaxing week for me for a change! No more hospital visits for hours on end, and for some reason, I don't know why, but I actually ended up with some time on my hands!
I treated myself to a bit of home pampering. Got my roots tidied up with a hair colour and gave myself a haircut. A pedicure, to get those feet ready for the light of day! All in all, not such a bad week. Let's hope the sun keeps shining!




I'm wearing these fairly new trousers from Eastex You may remember them slightly more dressed up in this post here Eastex have an offer on at the moment and the trousers are now priced at £55.20 I love the colour. This and all the pink tones that are around at the moment are my favourites 


I've teamed the trousers with a top that is a couple of years old. This top is actually meant to be styled off the shoulders, but every time I try this trend and look in the mirror I just see a milk maid! I prefer to wear mine like this!


Most of the gipsy style tops have either elastic and a soft tie to the front and if you like all the styles of these tops that are in the shops, remember that this way of wearing it can be done too.




Have a great weekend everyone, I look forward to seeing your style/beauty posts!

  1. Lovely colours, Laurie, and a clever idea of making the gypsy top a more comfortable style. The milkmaid look made me giggle!

  5. I know what you mean about a milkmaid Laurie, I tend to see Fatima Whitbread as my shoulders are quite big! These colours suit you so well, and the bag goes brilliantly with the outfit. Have a lovely weekend, Gail x

  14. Laurie, I'm with you on the off the shoulder tops. I just can't bring myself to do it. So I am glad that you styled this pretty top with the shoulders up. It looks lovely that way. I figure it is our choice and we need to feel comfortable with with our style. Very pretty outfit. You look like a spring dream! Hope you are having a great weekend. I tried sending you a message about using one of your pictures for my Beautiful Blogger post. I didn't hear back so I left the picture out, but if you are okay with me using a pic from your post I can still link it in after the fact. See my link up post. Thanks Laurie. - Amy

  16. I'm so happy you had sometime to yourself Laurie. Your deserve it, I suppose we all do. I agree with you about off the shoulder tops, it always feels like my bra is slipping ;-) Love the way you put your outfit together though, so ladylike and feminine. Hope you have a happy week

  21. Powder blue is such a fab but underrated color. I love how delicate it is paired with the floral print!

  22. That powder blue is so lovely and really suits you. The whole outfit is so summer ready! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst

  23. I love these soft colours and the floral print of the top. I usually wear elasticated off the shoulder tops more on the shoulder...somehow they always seem to creep up anyway. When I get to the end of this long spell of work (the joys of being freelance!) I'm going to indulge in some much needed pampering. My hairdresser broke her arm so I'm long overdue a trim too!
