Mum on the Run - How to wear prints - shirts, skirts, blouses and trousers (plus boots)

Please forgive me - I'm doing a bit of a cheat's post tonight - but there is still something for you all to read.

I have been asked by Alaina, the Senior Editor at, to write a weekly article for Easy Living Magazine online and so, once a week, (if it's all right with you all) I will provide a link to the article instead of writing a post.

My first article is about how to wear prints. For this article I used images which you may have seen before - but the text is new.  If you would like to take a look you can do so here
I really hope that you find it enjoyable and useful too.


  1. Congrats Beth! Look forward to your weekly updates:)

    1. Hi Anne - ah thanks, so kind! Hope that all is well with you and the family.

  2. Great article Beth, with some really useful tips. And SO refreshing to have it illustrated with pictures of you wearing each trend rather than some anonymous model (or worse - just 'cut outs' of the pieces). I'll look forward to reading the future articles :-)

  3. This is great - really helpful advice on prints. Congratulations on the weekly column by the way... :-)

  4. Fantastic - so excited for your new writing gig. Congrats! I can't personally bear prints on my top half because I think they drown me (and I don't like printed trousers because they make me think of PJs). However I love your first look with the gorgeous skirt and that plaid Hobbs dress looks yummy on you.

  5. Beth - I was planning to comment on your article on the Easy Living page, but there doesn't seem to be any way to do that, so I'll do it here instead!
    I love the way that you've added the narrow turquoise belt to the digital print skirt outfit. It's just perfect - but I would never in a million years have thought to do that...
    I'm taking notes :-)

  6. Hi Thea,

    Somehow the comments were pushed down the page, if you check back you can now comment. Thanks for reading!

    Best wishes,

    Alaina Vieru (senior editor of

    1. Thanks Alaina. I'm impressed that you're checking in on Beth's blog, and looking after your writers!
      BTW, I love the suggestions in your '50 best autumn dresses' feature. I hadn't visited before, but I've bookmarked it now :-)

    2. OK, comment posted on the site now :-)

    3. Hi again Thea,

      I've been reading Beth's blog for awhile (although this is the first time I've checked in for a week - I've got a cup of tea and am having a good read. Bliss!). Thanks so much for your nice feedback on the site!

  7. Love the post and congrats on the new series. And sorry to be picky but there's a typo in the snake boots section.

    1. Oh dear, our subs missed that! Thanks for pointing out and that's now amended!

      Many thanks,

      Alaina (senior editor -
