Syon House Visit – Killing Two Birds With One Stone


What with our unpredictable weather of late, the Syon Park gardens that I often visit has a huge stately home on its grounds and for the last three years that I have visited the gardens, I have never been inside for a nose.

The gardens are literally a ten-minute drive from my home and I love to visit this place and it’s handy for my photo shoots. So I decided to extend my season ticket this year to gain entry to the house too. I thought if the weather carry’s on the way it has so far this year, at least I can take refuge there for photos and show you some lovely parts of this place too


Sharing a new outfit at Syon Park – floral/neutral

Let’s talk about the outfit first. Purchased for a night out, and together these two items make the ideal pairing but I’ve stayed shop savvy here knowing that I can use each of these two items to create different looks.

H&M has so many lovely items this season and I love so much of the Conscious collection too. You may remember the dress from a couple of weeks back. I took the photos in Syon Gardens.

The top is not a style that I would normally go for. The sleeves are long with a double lined cuff, split at the back. For a regular sized woman, they would finish just below the wrist line I would imagine but I tried it on with the cuffs turned back and I liked how the sleeve hung.

A bargain at £19.99 it’s one of those tops, neutral in colour that will work with anything. It’s not at all see-through and comfortable to wear.

Floral trousers remind me of the eighties!



I fell in love with the trousers! I just love the pattern and how they are not too “out there” with the soft muted colour tones. The fit is really good and I can tame the look with a simple T-shirt or dress them up. H&M’s cigarette trousers are worth looking at. There are plain materials in lots of different colours.

I’ve purchased a camel coloured pair but found I had to size up. Maybe because of the cheap price tag of £12.99? whereas the floral ones came up great in my usual size but a little bit pricier.


1. Cream Split Sleeve Blouse
Straight-cut blouse in woven fabric with a slightly wider, round neckline and opening with a button at the back of the neck. Long sleeves and wide cuffs with a slit.
2. Patterned Cigarette Trousers
Ankle-length cigarette trousers in patterned stretch cotton satin with a regular waist, concealed hook-and-eye fastener, zip fly and tapered legs with short slits at the hems.
3. Metallic Straw Tote bAG
For a modern and sturdy everyday accessory, choose this sleek tote bag. The woven finish is strong and has a traditional texture, while smart top handles make it easy to carry.
4. White Block Heel Sandals

I purchased some sensible shoes for running around London in. These are from F+F and I can’t provide a link I’m afraid. Super comfortable and worth a look when you’re doing your shopping.


And to finish off the look – Most worn bag



To finish off the look is the most worn of the year handbag. I literally use it on a daily basis and that’s why I bought the shoes to pair with it. It seems to go well with any outfit I wear.

For an evening look, I think some party heels and a little more jewellery will do the trick, along with an evening bag. But at the same time as I say, wear these items separately to create so many looks. The top is great for day or night time wear.

I’m leaving you with a little taster of Syon House. I will be sharing more photos on my Instagram stories and will feature photos in my end of the month post. It really is a beautiful place.

    That’s one beautiful pair of trousers. I like both the print and the cut, they look both elegant and versatile. I love how you styled them with that white blouse with slightly flared sleeves and heels. Very elegant and sophisticated styling. Perfect for the visit to the Syon house.

    Sleeves are always a problem for me Anna. But I couldn’t resist this top. I normally look out for three quarter length sleeves

    I’m waiting to see if you buy Anna! I bought the floral in my regular size but the plain one’s at £12.99 I had to size up. A cheap price like that I guess they scrimped maybe xx

    Oh my gosh I would love a place like that 10 minutes from my house. What a beautiful home. Love your outfit! Those pants are gorgeous and that’s such a cute bag too!

  22. May 16, 2019 / 1:07 pm

    We love Syon Park! It’s beautiful isn’t it. So peaceful- even when it’s busy. Those trousers look very pretty! I’m not sure I’d have the courage to go for a light colour- but they look perfect on you. Thanks for joining us for the #Dreamteam x

  23. May 16, 2019 / 8:41 am

    I love this muted look on you Laurie. These shades work so well with your skin and hair colouring. I’m pleased to hear that others have to size up at H&M – I thought it was just me. I’ve just nipped across to see if these are still available and dang, they are! Am trying not to spend this month as the boys are spending so much on their boats – the sooner they are out on the water the better! Hope to see you soon sweetie x

  24. May 14, 2019 / 6:09 pm

    Wow what a gorgeous place! I love the muted colors in your pants and how they would just be perfect with pretty much any top! You look so chic for spring!

  25. May 14, 2019 / 9:30 am

    What a beautiful place to take photos, Laurie. Beautiful outfit too. Love the colours in this look. Thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays 🙂 Hope you can join us tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing at Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop.

    Your trousers look beautiful. I am not familiar with floral trousers being popular in the 80s but I am glad that it is trending now.

  39. May 9, 2019 / 11:41 pm

    What pretty trousers. I’ve had a few pairs from H & M, and most came up small. The slingbacks are very cute and very me! I have a red pair that I wore on the blog recently, and love the look of them. The house looks like a fabulous backdrop, you’ve shared some fabulous photos Hun. Jacqui Mummabstylish

  40. May 9, 2019 / 6:16 pm

    I don’t often wear trousers, but if I do, I prefer floral ones. I find yours particularly gorgeous. Incidentally, I bought several pairs of H&M cigarette trousers last year. They are such a great fit and, very importantly, just the right length for petites like us! Loving the handbag too. And how stunning is the ceiling in Syon House’s long gallery! xxx

    Such a beautiful place and a pretty outfit to match

    Syon house looks so elegant and amazing. Laurie, first what part of rewardstyle do you used to get the numbers and subsequent items that you list for shopping? ( I have reward style but use “boutique”. ) Second, I LOVE this look! So romantic and stylish withe the soft neutral and muted floral pattern. Just beautiful! I have looked on H&M, but the Conscuous collection has all sold out ( here in the US) and I was bummed. I would have to see now.
    thanks for linking!

    Laurie, I bought these trousers too….funny story but the first time I saw them and tried on the only pair in my size, I didn’t like the way the pattern was placed at the crotch area… was like the fronds all radiated out!
    The next time I saw them, again only one pair in my size, I’m happy to say that the pattern was fine! I am a sucker for patterned trousers and these are so pretty.
    Thanks for the sizing tip on the 12.99 trousers as I am going to get a pair..they had some great colours.

  45. May 8, 2019 / 7:53 pm

    Oh it looks amazing! I love the castles and manor s in the UK! Love your trousers. They look cool and elegant by at the same time.
