Nanna chic repost

Stereotypically, people think Nannas or Grandmothers array of clothing is stuck back in the 50s. There's something rather familiar about the outfits you see on the black and white films your Nanna tells you are marvellous l! BUT have you ever looked at what she wears with a different mind set? Maybe that cream woollen shawl she wears every day would look so glam matched with the latest oversized leather handbag or the large 'spectacles' with the paint peeling from the framing could look rather vintage whilst encasing your fake lashes OR even her 'william morris' patterned below the knee skirt would totally set off those 10 foot tall stilettos...
Take a look in her jumble sale and think of us whilst pulling that sour lemon face at her old feathered hat!

The oatmeal knit

Go on dig it out! Don't hide it away! Its waiting for you! Yep, you know what I'm talking about... the old knitted cardy your gran told you would look divine with your pair of denims! Well, she's right! It's going to look great! Take a peak... don't be scared... it won't be as awful as you think... trust me!

The mustard shawl.

Its the dreaded shawl you've always dreaded. The one that lurks around at the back of your cupboard. You remember the words your grandmother told you when she gave it to you ' I'll give you this as my little treat' A TREAT?! you thought... Well don't scare yourself with the morphed memories you have of it! I'm sure your views will change after a sneaky glance at this.

A little bit of tweed

When your Nanna gave you this tweet jacket to match hers for christmas your face dropped. But, don't go digging out the receipt that was tucked into the card. Keep it, Embrace it, Love it !

Pearls for Girls&Amber clusters.

Why not borrow your grannies little pearl earrings from years ago!? They are so trendy and sweet and can look so elegant with an updo! I'm pretty sure your nanna will have one lerking around in her colection of old earrings and necklaces!

Glossy Brogues

They are the in-thing! So, don't worry about feeling old and frumpy! They look lovely withs skirts, dresses and smart trousers and are perfectly versatile!!

Nana's Old Handbag

Why not get some use out of nanas old leather handbag! The chances are its pretty plain and big to fit her knitting or handy wet wipes in!!! Her bag can look Oh So Stylish so give it a go!!!

The winter warmer

Cream scarves match anything during the winter and im pretty sure you will love nannies knit!

Donut it up! 

When grandma's hair 'donut' comes to mind. You immediately think... slicked back....tight...and well unstylish!! BUT it doesn't have to be that way! Donuts can look absolutely gorgeous when messed up a tad and the scraped back hair loosened... Take a look at this....

Hope you enjoyed this post ;) and took away some handy tips and styles xx
