A Lifestyle Blog With An African Twist

Stylish and Comfortable : Distressed Jeans, Black and White Top with Orange Sandals

Hello and Welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe.  

Before I tell anything about today's outfit I want use this opportunity to thank Sylvia of 40+ Style for featuring me on her blog as one of the 40 most stylish midlife women you should follow on instagram right now.  You can read all about it and check out the other fabulous women that were featured here.  I also entered the how I wear my ling necklace series and was featured by both Adrienne of The Rich Life on A Budget and Jill of Everything Just So. Plenty thanks ladies!!!

One of the things that hubby and I do on those weekends that we haven't got anything planned is looking at display houses.  We love looking at the different designs and layouts and of course the decor and gardens. Hubby loves gardening while I am happy to look at and appreciate the beauty of it all. On such weekends I like to go for a casual and comfortable look as we do quite a lot of walking from house to house.   

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
