I had a lovely evening last night combining business with pleasure. My friend Sally was my dinner date for a restaurant review I did for Aspire Magazine.
We ate at the Tennants Arms in Kilnsey, about 12 miles out of Skipton and it was excellent. The review will appear in the March issue and as always, I will share my review here once it is out in print.
I wanted to deviate from my usual choice of a dress for such occasions so wore these amazing reptile print leggings with high- heeled ankle boots and a velvet jacket.
I have plans to style them in a few different ways so will do my best to get some photographs taken in natural daylight. The wet weather precluded this yesterday.
The leggings are from the Foundation Range at Hope Fashion. designed with both comfort and style in mind. The collection comprises four shapes, a long sleeve scoop top (which I have in black and will be wearing soon), a vest, a body and leggings.
They are made from a super-soft, super-stretchy and super-comfy Italian fabric for which I was grateful given the hearty three course meal I consumed.
They maintained their shape and looked unworn even when I took them off (I think this is the first pair of leggings that hasn’t gone even a little baggy at the knees, particularly after sitting for several hours).
The vibrant print calls for only the simplest of accessories so the only jewellery I wore was this bronze and black statement necklace.
And this Mint Velvet black leather and ponkskin clutch.

About Hope Fashion
-Hope Fashion is the brainchild of Nayna Mackintosh, herself a 40 plus woman.
-The models reflect this age group and the sizing is inspired.
-The collection has been designed using the principles of Divine Proportion (found in science, nature and the arts and represents the balance of working in thirds). In reality, following this principle when dressing can elongate the body making the silhouette look taller and slimmer. This is The Hope Code.
My clothing was a gift from Hope Fashion. All opinion is 100% honest and all content is my own.
