Bonmarche – Casual Shopping Style And Comfort & Celebrating Style Link Up

Hi, everyone! A huge thank you to all that linked up last week. I should be in Cornwall right now, but not only the Father in law is still in Hospital, but the Mother in law too! I can tell you it’s been one of those weeks! And I’m still behind with everything!

Anyway onwards and upwards as they say, and thank you all so much for your good wishes. They are both on the mend and hopefully will be home soon.

Today I’m on my way to one of my favourite markets at Kempton racing grounds. I popped in for a quick cuppa at one of my local haunts at Brentford Lock and took my photos here.

I’m showing you today this really cosy striped waterfall Cardigan from Bonmarche And the most comfortable jeans from their new collection.

The cardigan I chose for the neutral colours that can be mixed and matched with other items. Grey, Navy and Beige being my main go to daily colours. I have a size S on here and it’s really roomy. It’s also just gone into sale from £24.00 down to £16.00 here Bargain!

The Jeans that I have chosen are from Bonmarche’s new Ultimate Shape Enhancing Jeans. I love the shape of the leg on these Jeans. Not skinny, just perfect straight. They fit like a dream and so comfortable. These have also just gone into sale from £28.00 down to £23.00 here

You can see how soft the ribbed cardigan is here. Iv’e teamed the Jeans and Cardigan with a plain Grey T-shirt and Grey studded belt. The Jeans are not Denim they are a soft cotton/polyester with lots of Elastane, equalling comfort and great for keeping their shape.

I’m leaving you with a couple of photos of the Lock. It’s so lovely here in the Summer, a great place to watch the world go by.

                                   Cardigan                                                                     Jeans

I’m looking forward to seeing your style!

XO Laurie
