Style Not Age Challenge: Out and About

I hope you all had a joyous Christmas! Ours was quiet, as dictated by the rules and regs. We did a doorstep drop off of presents on Christmas Day, and then had a celebration with just the two of us. 

It's the last Monday of the month so time for the Style Not Age Challenge. Hilda has chosen "Out and About." I get out and about most days on my walks but I thought I would make more of an effort than showing you the usual hiking gear and dirty boots. I'm wearing an outfit that I might wear into London on not too cold a night to go to the theatre or dinner. 

This is my oldest coat and one of my favourites: it's black velvet with a fur lined hood, and makes me feel very glamorous.  I bought it many years ago in a lovely little department store in Newbury that has since closed. 
I'm wearing the coat with Spanx faux leather leggings, red and black ankle boots (old) from Lotus Shoes, a slouchy jumper (old) and a red collar from Rew. I have a few of these and they're perfect for adding warmth around the neck but without the fiddle of a scarf.  They have a button to fasten. Magic!

I haven't taken any pictures in the garden for a while so it was great to see the daffodils coming through. It's been a mild weather so far so a few plants from summer are still flowering. I planted a bare
root rose a few weeks ago, Gabriel Oak, and it's already got some leaf growth so I'm thrilled. I had to pose by the holly as it still has a few berries. It's a bit bedraggled because it fell over recently.

Now let's see what the rest of the Style Not Age collective came up with. Emma from Stylesplash has mixed brown with orange in her favourite work-time look of mini skirt, tights and boots with a roll neck top. Her faux fur coat is a recent charity shop purchase. The skirt is from M&S skirt and the bag was bought the bag from TKMaxx several years ago. The hat is from Asos and the boots, she says, are really old. 
Jacqui from Mummabstylish also has a pop of refreshing orange - doesn't it look great at this time of year? She is wearing some oh-so-comfy lounge wear with roll neck, block heels and jacket for a trip out. Adding slippers and cardi is great for indoors, she says. 
Anna from Anna's Island Style is wowing us with a super vintage pink coat, jeans by Curve Appeal, polo by M&S, boots by Office and new bag by Bags of Time.
Finally Hilda from Over the Hilda has taken advantage of a beautiful day for a walk in her 
Primark coat and boots, F&F camo leggings and a 'Selected' jumper.

You'll find more pictures on the different highlighted blogs. It's my turn to set the next challenge - don't forget to join us on the last Monday of January. See you this coming Wednesday for the last #WowOnWednesday of 2020.
