Mum on the Run - Bringing you some fantastic pieces from the M&S Limited Collection range

On Thursday and Friday of last week, I was working at Marks & Spencer doing Style Presentations at a cardholder event. I was presenting every hour, on the hour, from 1pm until 9pm. It was hard work but brilliant fun. I was working with two personal shoppers and a sound technician and they were fantastic.
I was encouraged to get up to all sorts of mischief by some of the ladies who came to chat to me afterwards, which included being told to take off my wedding ring so that I could have some fun with other men. When those over 70's have a glass or two of fizz there's no stopping them!   
This is the dres that I wore on the second day of the event. It's the Floral Print Tunic Dress (£39.50) from Limited Collection. By the time that I had sorted out the outfits to talk about there was very little time to choose an outfit for myself.  I needed to have a belt for the microphone and wanted to wear something colourful, comfortable and warm as the air conditioning was chilly - so this dress worked really well.

There were some great pieces in store and for me, Limited Collection is really strong at the moment. I love this Nehru Collar Embellished Blouse (£35). With its pretty detail on the shoulder and unfussy neckline, it's great with jeans, tailored or printed trousers, or a pencil skirt.

These Jacquard Straight Leg Trousers (£35) could easily have walked straight out of Whistles. They are styled here with the blouse shown above.

This is the Circle Jacquard Jacket (£55) which goes with the trousers. Trouser suits are such a massive look at the moment but separating the pieces out and wearing them with other things is a little less challenging - especially if you're not operating in the world of full on London fashionista.

A grey T is hailed by many as the mainstay of their wardrobe. This Sequin Embellished T (£25) is a great piece. The sequins on the sleeves are matt, so they add interest without bling - because bling just wouldn't be right on a grey T.

Whilst working in the store, a lady came up to me to say hello. It transpired that she read Style Guile and that she had spotted this Pure Cotton Jacket as had I.  She then went on to buy it so I am hoping for a photo from her soon to post here!

I hope that you have enjoyed a whizz through Limited Collection. There are several other great pieces too. The collection literally is Limited, so if there's something you like, it's best to be quick!


  1. Some nice choices. The jacquard trousers were a no-no for me when tried on - although I was very drawn to them on the hanger! x

    1. Hi Ash - oh, that's a shame about the trousers. Were you tempted by the jacket instead? x

  2. The cream blouse is AMAZING - I love that so much.

    1. Me too - and I do have those M&S vouchers sitting on the side but no - I mustn't. Or should I? Let me know if you do!

  3. Like that tunic dress - I'm a sucker for a three/quarter length sleeve. Pity the M & S website and photos are so useless - you do really need to go and see their stuff in the flesh.

    1. Hi Isla - you are so right. Oh how I would love to get my hands on their website and sort out their styling!

  4. Some lovely choices. Really like the dress you chose - it's so difficult to get nice dresses with sleeves, but that's a winner.

    1. Hi Helen - I liked the dress too - easy to wear, no fuss and pretty colours. Sleeves can be a tricky issue but I think that the High St is finally starting to take notice!

  5. Really like the cream blouse..I can see that working well for quite a few occasions.

    1. Me too - it's a dangerous one. Lots of reasons to buy including versatility, price, how pretty it is etc. Am trying to resist though!

  6. Oh nooooo! Must stop reading fashion blogs! Have just ordered the gorgeous floral tunic dress ( although the website pic would not have persuaded me to). I hope it looks as good on me because it would be a really useful dress.
