Mum on the Run – Anchors Away!

Firstly I would like to thank anyone who has dropped by Style Guile as a result of reading the article in Woman & Home Magazine. Thank you for taking the time to come and say “hello”. I hope that you like what you find.

Today I am tapping into the whole printed jeans trend which is so big this season.  If bright flowers perhaps aren’t for you, these more subtle jeans may do the trick of being something slightly different but not too different. From Oasis, I bought them on a whim not sure how the anchors would translate onto a leg – would they become stretched, distorted – who knew.  In actual fact they were fine.  Phew!

I put them with navy patent Carvela slingbacks which I find are a good height and comfortable.  I also wore a Topshop knit which I bought in a sale just after Christmas and a Boden blazer, which was also a sale purchase.

I love the spotty lining on the blazer, which you can also see on the cuffs below.  I felt quite patriotic in my red blue and white outfit – just like I did in 1977 for the Queen’s silver jubilee.

As well as the practical, there’s also a little room on Style Guile for dreaming and this is top of my wish list at the moment – the Lily bag from Mulberry which is part of the “cookie cutter” collection, so called because the items in the range look as if they have been cut out with a cookie cutter. 

I have no doubt that the Lily bag will remain a wish, rather than become a reality but that’s fine with me.  Part of the fun in life is dreaming about the things that I would like to own!  Instead I spotted these shoes in New Look.  The same colour with the same pretty detail, they would fill that gap in my wardrobe for a nude accessory with a pretty edge. OK, so they are a pair of shoes and not a bag but that too is fine.

I tried them on and actually despite the heel height, they are really quite comfortable – and at £24.99 easier on the purse too!

Today I am wearing: Oasis jeans, Topshop jumper, Carvela shoes, Mango scarf, Boden blazer

    Hello – what a great question and one to which I should probably devote some proper blog space! I think that 2 or 3 posts should cover it, so keep your eyes peeled. So pleased that you are enjoying the blog – thank you. Beth
