Mum on the Run – Saturday Bliss at Bicester

For the first time, in a very long time, I had a few hours at Bicester Village today and it was bliss! 

The double whammy came from the possibility of being able to buy a couple of pieces from brands which l love but which are a bit pricey for every day – such as Reiss etc and also taking a look at other brands which aren’t stocked (or are stocked but only in a small way) in Birmingham – such as Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Rupert Sanderson, Marni – the list goes on.

I figured that it might be drizzling so wore my Zara trench, wide leg jeans from Mango and because they require a heel, red patent KG shoes.  For accessories I wore a statement necklace, LK Bennett bag and Hobbs belt (oh and I appear to be accessorsing with an antennae too).  Here’s a closer pic of my necklace, which was from Jigsaw.

And here are the KG shoes – still as shiny as the day I bought them!

Here are a few images of things that I liked at Bicester:

a spotty sheep;

Hobbs NW3 shoes in yellow – which you may have guessed is my current favourite colour;

a pale blue Vivienne Westwood bag which I was told off for photographing (the ridiculousness of fashion never ceases to amaze me!)

a pretty going out shirt from Jigsaw, floaty and flattering.

I didn’t buy any of these pieces but I just liked them – and anyway we couldn’t have fitted the sheep in the car.

As a result of my shopping techinque our eldest daughter, who was with me, christened me “Ninja Shopper.” I don’t think that it had anything to do with fighting with other shoppers but I could be wrong.

I think that the sheep deserves it’s own picture, so here it is….

Today’s outfit – Zara trench, KG shoes, Hobbs belt, Jigsaw necklace, LK Bennett bag.

Hope that you are all having a lovely Easter weekend.
