    cream - it will show up the tan nicely. Ideally if you can get one that is quite boxy, a bit more structured - a bit more towards a jacket than a cardigan - so it will still be casual but look a bit more dressed up.
    Also 3/4 sleeves are good as again they show the tan off

    Also cardigans look good with the jeans and t-shirt combination so it need not sit in the wardrobe after saturday

    (personally I hate cardigans with no buttons but if you are a non dress person it might be a better option)

    If you have an American express card - free film screenings for October 10th (think it might be cineworlds?)
    I've not clicked on any so I don't know if there is a booking fee

    Welcome to the registration page for complimentary tickets to UK-wide screenings of Battle Of The Sexes at selected cinemas. If you are an American Express Cardmember, you can access tickets now. Maximum of 4 tickets per Cardmember

    Battle Of The Sexes is the true story of the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs.

    Simply check availability below and click 'Book now.'

    Once tickets are all claimed, we'll open up a limited waiting list for cancellations before showing it as 'Fully booked'.

    Good morning all....

    Lovely to see you popping in JTS.

    Mrs 3 Dogs list is testing me....I don't need anything on it,but when its placed in front of me in simple terms I can't help but salivate over the W comparisons and wonder just how long it will take for my resolve to crumble.

    I was in T yesterday and bought the long life dream stuff...just one carton for £1....but the SS till managed to take 3 coupons without issue so a little opportunity for a "moderate overage"...i did wonder about using the 4th coupon too but lost my nerve...but 3 worked fine without issue.
    Got to be my favourite coupon of the year....so thank you I think to curl girl for posting.....

    A house just down from us is in the process of being re-roofed, they stripped down at least half of it yesterday, and were in the process of stripping down more. They seemed to have one group stripping and another group re-tiling it. I just hope not too much was uncovered as we had a couple of minutes of torrential rain that would have been like normal rain for a couple of hours, but weather here yesterday on the whole was not so bad.

    As for Studio, have only ever bought tiny things from them, on the whole have avoided them due to their reputation. Don't know if they will be on https://www.!!!!!!!!!!!!!/index-search.php? Might be worth a look, always good to go to the top. Don't know why that is !d out - it is www.c e o email.com without the spaces. If someone knows why it is banned from here can they let me know please, sure I have mentioned it before.

    All the batons, roofing felt, softs, barge-boards and gutters are being done as well as the tiles. When out yesterday saw a couple of houses in the process of being done and roofers where desperately trying to cover them up wuth plastic, but it was blowing off as quick as they were trying to get it on.

    Have just made a complaint to Studio through Resolver and have rung them once again. No record of request for refund. Garden furniture is available at 5 times what I paid for it, if I would like to re-order

    Just checked my American express account for new member offers. I seem to have quite a few offers for London restaurants - spend £100 get £20 back.
    Except for Claridges where I only have to spend £75 to get £25 back

    I think I need to be using this card a bit more for small purchases - outside of the nectar stable eg sainsbobs, Pizza Express - then they might have a better understanding of where I eat out

    Great thanks ladies, I did think pink but wasnt sure with navy.

    I own lots of dresses, but only for holidays I just dont seem to wear them here, sometimes feel slightly overdressed in a dress, when everyone else turns up in jeans

    At least I have a few options to pick from now when I go shopping, and as you say I can wear them again with jeans.
