Principles have a MEGA sale on atm and the clothes are as cheap as chips!!

I am 36 and am into jeans with a longer top to hide the belly and chunky jewellry and high shoes.

I look cool!!

Jewellry can maketh the outfit.

Try TU at Sainsburys.

Thank you lovely ladies. ggirl I loved the top... but as usual I left it all a bit late!! So I decided on Beige cropped trousers and a cream with beige stitching, longish, sleeveless sweetheart neckline waistcoat & chunky jewellery. I think I looked alright!! Thanks again xx
