A Spring Outfit in Grey and Beige

My goodness isn't it nice to have some sunshine!  Our winter has not been particularly cold but it's seemed bland, grey and wet.  When spring sprung  a couple of weeks ago we took ourselves for a social at our local bar, which we do about once a month.  Now. I have noticed that many blog linkups require a post about an outfit.  Very rarely do I write on an outfit (I know that as many of my blogs aren't link up worthy due to lack of outfit. ) Clearly I need to add it to my repertoire more regularly.  Would you like that? Don't answer do answer, please.  I'd like to know what you'd like to hear more of on my site.  

Getting on to the outfit for this post you won't find any fancy modelled pics as I wasn't planning on using the pictures that way and I'm not generally speaking that sort of blogger.  

On this occasion hubs and I took a saunter to our local bar.  We like to go once a month to catch up with friends on a Sunday afternoon.  Sometimes we take the dogs. 

It was a warmish day so I grabbed this handy little top I have from H&M USA site  and UK site .  Lucky you, it's reduced, but I bought it in the autumn at full price.   It's quite sheer so I wear a nude cami underneath.  This blouse, although sheer, is warm being a chiffony material.  No need for a jumper or cardigan on this particular day.

I paired it with grey jeans (I like grey and beige, don't you) and 5 years old Clarks black knee boots.   To walk to the bar I wore my sale purchase Laura Ashley coat, which is no longer available. I added my tan Boden thrifted leather bag.  I've always been one for mixing my bag and footwear colours so I was delighted when this became a trend. Sadly I'm hearing that matchy-matchy is back.  Nooooo, that is so not me! How will I manage to be that put together?  I'm  throw it on and pray sort of girl midlife woman has been

Isn't it lovely seeing the daffodils out.  And no I didn't trample on them.
