Welcome to the November Stylish Monday link up! I hope you all had a great weekend. We got back from holiday on Friday evening – from beautiful sunshine to rain…typical! And of course the clocks went back while we were away so now it gets dark even earlier. Can I just hibernate and wake up in March?*sigh* Just kidding…only 51 days to Christmas!
When I saw that this month’s Stylish Monday theme was ‘Lovely in Leggings’ I was in two minds whether to participate; usually the only time I wear leggings is to work out, and then I definitely don’t feel or look lovely! But then I remembered how I styled my Meadowlark yoga leggings for both a casual and a more dressed up look. So as these are the only pair of leggings that I would wear in a non-exercise situation I decided to go for a similar look.
These leggings have magical slimming and firming powers, while still being incredibly comfortable. I wasn’t planning to keep this outfit on but I felt so good in it I wore it to a hospital appointment. (Isobel needed an MRI scan on her hand to check on a little lump). I wore the same boots but a different top this time; I’ve had this tunic jumper for years – my mum bought it for me one Christmas. It’s always felt a bit tight on the arms so it’s stayed unworn in the drawer. When I first put it on for this outfit I almost took it off again but it seemed to stretch after a while.
I’ve added the same owl pendant and oversized sunglasses as before, but I switched my Jennifer Hamley tote bag for the latest addition to my collection: the vegan leather Mischief bag. Jennifer recently held a live Facebook auction to sell off her remaining stock, with proceeds going to charity. I managed to bag (pun intended!) this chain handle bag, plus a vegan leather coin and card holder. Both were fabulous bargains, especially given the RRP. Some vegan leather can be stiff and crack easily, but Jennifer Hamley bags are every bit as good as cow leather. It’s just a shame she won’t be making any more.
