What I've been wearing this week

Over 50s fashion blogger Gail Hanlon in gym kit from Yoga Leggs - green sweatshirt and camo leggings
So here i am in January in a new outfit for the gym, after saying I wouldn't buy any clothes until my summer. But I am vindicated! My company has a special well being fund and we can buy gym memberships, sporting attire and equipment and just pay the tax. So my camo leggings and "Dance like nobody's watching" sweatshirt don't count.

So what else have I been wearing?
A casual but smart outfit suitable for work: dark blue sequinned jumper and trousers with suede boots
This Fabienne Chapot jumper (sweater) with sequinned stars is ideal for cold weather, particularly with a shirt underneath. It's a relaxed but not too casual look for work with blue trousers and suede boots.
Here's the back of the jumper with a close-up of the stars.
Burgundy sweater with detachable bow worn with a magnolia patterned skirt and burgundy suede boots
For a colleague's leaving do, and something the team like to do every now and then, "print day," I wore my Ted Baker burgundy jumper, which has a detachable bow, and a Lily and Me skirt (now reduced) plus my old (10 years plus) suede boots.  To tell the truth, I did not wear the boots because I caught the train to work that day which involves a lot of walking, and the boots are too high heeled for that. But they look good, don't they!

I'm back on Wednesday with the results of the first Is This Mutton fashion and beauty survey and the #WowOnWednesday link-up.

On Sunday I'll be sorting out one of my dilemmas: dealing with the colour blue.

  1. Two gorgeous outfits Gail, love the blue and burgundy together. Might try and copy this. Thanks for sharing today, have a great week my friend. x Jacqui Mummabstylish

  2. These three looks are all great. Thanks for sharing them at the party. The bow on the sweater is a great idea. It creates interest and ups the style factor.
