Let's have fun with colour is what I advocate and here I am practising what I preach. I'm so pleased with these palazzo pants which I found in Tesco on my recent trip away. The wedge sandals and handbag are also new and work perfectly with this look. I had previously customised the little purple cashmere cardi with new Mary Goldberg buttons and don't they tie in so well with not only the necklace, but the whole outfit? Sorry if I'm coming across as smug, it's never meant to be, I just take such pleasure in my clothes - they really are a source of joy for me. I want to share that with others and inject some enthusiasm into the wavering or unsure amongst you. Adding a few bright separates to your wardrobe can be a great facelift and a mood enhancer too. Go on, give it a try. It needn't be expensive and who knows where it might take you?

I'm in my fifties and my love of clothes is as keen as when I was a teenager. Over the years I've discovered what suits me yet I'm still adventurous enough to experiment. I'd love to share my passion for fashion with you. Being a Scot I adore tweeds, tartan, fairisle knits and brogues and have very recently bought myself a kilt. However I like to style these with a bit of a twist, fighting shy of anything too predictable. Much as my face bears testament to my years, my clothes will hopefully reflect the sense of sheer joy that can be derived from putting together a fab outfit. I'd love to think I could inspire women of my age to have fun as they dress to please themselves.
