On the Run – Another casual Friday outfit with a little bit of Liberty, Petit Bateau and Ugg, just for good measure

Yes, we’ve made it to the end of the week – just.  Two of the three terrors have limped, sneezed, coughed and wheezed their way through the week and finally it’s Friday night and we can now sigh a big sigh of relief. Phew. 

Do you reckon that when you are older and you have a tooth out, the tooth fairy still visits? I hope so because tomorrow, at 9am, I will be in the dental hospital having a wisdom tooth taken out. The up side of all that though is that the dental hospital is in the centre of Birmingham and to get back home I will have to walk past House of Fraser, Jigsaw – well any shop I choose really – and what better way to take the pain away than with a little retail therapy?

I was styling again today and after so much racing around yesterday, first with the trip to London and then working in Selfridges in the evening, I went for a fairly casual look – hoping that the lady I was working with wouldn’t mind.

I wore the new White Stuff wide leg trousers that I bought last week together with a Warehouse silk shirt, Topshop knit, Converse and Zara mac.

Hopefully I just about got away with it – there was no way that I could face heels today.

Today I thought that I would bring you a few snaps of some pieces that I saw yesterday whilst on my travels. Having arrived at 7.15am I had plenty of time for wandering. So, I took myself off to Oxford Street, South Molton Street and Regent Street for a look in Liberty, where I spotted this gorgeous Liberty print/Dr Marten satchel.

I have included a link so that you can take a closer look it. At £195 it isn’t cheap but if you are perhaps in that baby zone, not wanting to spend too much on clothes for now but needing a cross body bag and looking for something to pep up your Wardrobe, my money would be on this little number. Have I persuaded anyone yet – apart from myself that is? [Although I am not sure that wanting to own this bag is reason enough to go for baby number 4]


I just loved the styling of this window too.  I am not sure that I am in the market for any DM boots but I did used to love wearing my DM shoes when at University – bought from Sheffield market, I wore them all the time – without socks too – rock hard I was!

Many of you will know that personally, I don’t like wearing Uggs outdoors (not that I am judging anyone else for doing so – I will leave that to DM readers!) Given that I don’t own a pair in the first place it would actually be quite difficult anyway but even if I did own a real pair, as opposed to a mini Boden pair,  I still wouldn’t feel right doing it. 

So, this is my tongue in cheek photo of some Uggs which I would be prepared to wear outside – well, that’s if I could actually walk in them.

I took this photograph of the window of Petit Bateau on South Molton Street.  As you know, I am a fan of stripes and I love this simple but striking, and very chic, window display. 

I can’t think of a better way to finish tonight’s post than with some stripes so I will sign off now. Tomorrow I will bring you a few more shots from the Boden press day (did I tell you I’d been there?!) and a very inspirational lady. Enjoy your Friday night.

      Hi Avril – when the noise got too much I decided to sing a song in my head – any song. I wasn't banking on "Once in Royal David's City" making an appearance though! Glad you like the shirt/knit combo – I find it quite toasty!

    Oooh, yes, I agree with you on the stripes. I currently have my eye on the Jigsaw pink striped top – I can't pretend that I need any more navy and white so am branching out.
