Stripes are everywhere this year, have you got yours yet ?……….

When Sheela of Sheela’s Blog got in touch to take part in Project Sister Act I was really surprised. Here is a woman in my point of view just “too cool for school ” I have never been able to achieve that “cool look ” and I always envy women that can carry it off. Sheela is also a fantastic writer, and I recommend you pop over for a read sometime.

To explain the project SWEET STRIPES
A blogger of different age groups Teens, 20, 30, 40 50’s
Yep that’s me the oldest one !  This post is to portray that whatever our age it’s easy to wear an outfit of stripes. OK I may be old but I can wear stripes ! in fact I fell in love with these trousers because they made me look so much longer in the leg. So anyone else who  want’s  their legs to look longer, go get yourself a pair of stripe trousers ! I bought these from FandF The link to buying them is at the bottom of the post, a bargain at £16.00

So let me introduce you to Sheela and the other lovely bloggers doing the Sister Act this week….

Meet Sheela of Sheela’s Blog See what I mean, just to cool for school. I love this look and would never think of putting an outfit together like this. I envy ideas like this. Pop over to Sheela’s blog for the link up for lot’s of outfit inspo
