Celebrating Style – Relaxed weekend Wear Essentials

Hi Everyone!
And happy Easter weekend! A huge thank you to all that linked up last week. It’s growing in numbers slowly, but at least it’s growing!

I had a really lovely day today. My brother and his wife are over for a visit from Denmark. I don’t get to see them as often as I would like, but we packed quite a lot into one day!
I gave them a tour of Chiswick. Lots of walking to do, so it had to be comfortable wear today! 

I chose the easy classic outfit, comfortable style. A jacket that is light to carry and warm enough to keep the chills at bay. Comfy stretchy Bootcut jeans and a white shirt. Oh and just as we headed out the door I told him we were going to do some photos on the way!

Most of this outfit came from M&S I love their fitted blazers, they always fit well. And the white shirt has a special “no gaping” fastening and I can say it’s one of the best white shirts I’ve ever owned. I strongly recommend this shirt if you have a fuller bust.

I chose the simple accessories – Tan belt, Tan Shopper and Brown ankle boots. And not forgetting my new Daniel Wellington Watch If you didn’t catch my last post, there’s a 15% discount code  here

This Tan shopper I’ve had for ages. I can fit so much into it. Another M&S buy that has been worth every penny. Comfortable wide fitting, not too high ankle boots that I can walk miles in. Do you have that special pair of shoes or boots that are just so comfortable? I don’t know what I’ll do when these are worn out! 

That’s it from me, I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend. Oh and of course I have to show one photo of the brother!

Meet handsome big brother. Not bad for 61! He’s going to kill me for putting his age in!

Xo Laurie

I’m looking forward to seeing your style!

    Wow your brother looks brilliant for 61! You both look really stylish. Loving the no-gape shirt. I always end up with gaps at the buttons and it really spoils the look. Gorgeous as always lovely. Thanks for sharing with #DreamTeam x

    Love this classic look! You are gorgeous x

    This is a great classic look Laurie. I really need a white shirt that doesn't pull or gape on the bust. I was in M&S at the weekend but they had an Easter egg hunt for kids so I didn't get to do much browsing! Lovely photo of you and your brother 🙂

    I love this look Laurie so simple yet stylish! I don't own a white shirt because of my bigger bust so will definately get this one, love M&S and we have a good one in Yeovil #sharethejoy

    I love a blazer and jeans together – it s a classic outfit formula that I'm looking forward to wearing again when the weather cools here 🙂

    Hope you are having a great week and had a nice Easter.

    Your post makes me realise how far I've slipped sartorially – your easy, relaxed outfit is my "posh" and "pushing the boat out" in my pensioners' world! Yes, M&S do good blazers, I've got a quite a few suit jackets left over from my smarter pre-pensioner life that I can't bear to part with.
    Your brother? Han er en rigtig koen ungkarl !

  21. April 15, 2017 / 7:02 am

    Love the look Laurie and that bag, OMW beautiful and so big. Hope you had a great time with your brother and family and wishing you lots of luck with the link party. May it never become to big to handle 😉

  22. April 14, 2017 / 9:10 pm

    Oh Laurie, I hope you are not kilked ;). 61 is not old and he looks great! 😉
    You look very amazing in your comfortable outfit!
    Happy Easter, XO Tina

    Lovely outfit. So flattering how the grey in the beard offsets the blue of the sooo casual chic T shirt. Finishing off with such a cool jacket (is it leather? ) really achieves that masculine just threw it together, "darling " look that is just sooooooooo sexy.

    Oh you, it goes without saying that your look is just my style and certainly have an M&S black jacket.

    • April 19, 2017 / 7:28 pm

      Haha I will pass the message on Anna! Maybe he should be the blogger! xx

    • April 19, 2017 / 7:27 pm

      You know it Jodie. I think he worries about it more than me! xx
