Mum on the Run – Some yellow accessories as, in the words of the Beatles, here comes the sun!

I was off styling again today – my second model in two days, for the event next week.  I have four models in total and today I was working with an 18 year old girl who was lovely and brilliant to work with. We had a fab time in the shops and the great thing is that I can style her in all the trends that I wouldn’t necessarily put the other models in – or wear myself.  As we walked into Topshop I turned to her and said “bet this is better than a normal Wednesday in sixth form.” She just grinned.

I have decided to let you have a peep at a couple of the things that I bought yesterday as I just really love them! They are the accessories to go with an outfit from Preen at Debenhams – which was a really great range for the lady I was working with yesterday.  Anyway, as yellow is THE colour of the season, I thought that I would introduce these to the outfit…Apparently the shoes are really comfortable, despite their height. 

I pity anyone who comes to the door over the next few days.  I feel that it is my duty to give some of the clothes a whirl, just to see how they fit/fall/feel etc so there is a danger that at any given time I could be wearing palazzos, shorts, a dress, skirt, pink jeans, shirts, knitwear, blazers and any number of shoes and bags. Poor postman.

For myself, I thought that it would be nice to have an outfit of no black, either shoes or accessories, so I went for tan and navy instead. Given that I knew that I would be dashing around in the stores, I also went for comfortable footwear again.

What I am wearing: Tan Jones boots, Gap long and lean jeans (which need replacing but I haven’t got round to it yet), Boden blazer and jumper, H&M snood, Stella & Dot necklace, Cath Kidston bag.

Off to town again tomorrow to style model number three…

    I really love your outfits, they're so stylish and elegant but I think the Cath Kidston bags spoil the look a little. I hope I haven't upset you by saying so, I eagerly log in to see what you're wearing each day as you always look so lovely but I felt compelled to say something as you look so perfect otherwise. Thanks for sharing your looks with us, Therese.

      Hi Therese – no, I don't mind you saying so at all! Feedback is always welcome. I have to say that I agree with you but I needed a hands free bag for styling and also I bought it with some money from my Grandma – so I kind of bought it because I knew she would like it – which makes me like it to. I love the psychology behind clothes!!

      Great to hear from you, you're right though, a hands free bag is handy when you're a mum – I love your Mulberry one. The blog is great, it really fills a gap, I love style but so many of the fashion blogs show unrealistic and often unaffordable clothes so it's great to see clothes for 30 something Mums. Thanks for replying. Therese.

      I am so pleased that you like the blog and that it fills a gap for you. As you say, there are a lot of lovely clothes out there but so many are so expensive and really, in my opinon, it's just not necessary to spend a lot on clothes. I would love a Celine cross body bag but I think that Zara may be filling that gap instead!

    I love yellow – despite Coco Channel saying that you should never wear it (what did she know!!) I have an old (should say vintage) yellow coat that really lifts my spirits. In fact I may wear it on the school run today – might have to get out of my tracky bots though they won't really 'go'. Looking forward to seeing some pictures from your fashion show. BTW, I just nominated you for a BiB Award on BritMums. Michelle x

      Thank you so much for the BiB Award nomination on Britmums – that is so lovely of you. I would love to see a pic of the yellow coat and yes, pictures will follow the event.

    What an amazing job you have! I must say yellow does nothing for me but for those with olive skin tones it works nicely. I bought some beautiful Oasis jeans yesterday in long – they are so nicely fitted and feel more expensive that they are!

      I must say I have never been a fan of yellow but I am warming to the idea of a bag or some shoes. Once yellow appears in the stores it makes me realise how many tones of it there are! Love the sound of your jeans – I really rate Oasis for their selection. Always good in a sale too!
