On the Run – Nearly, but I just couldn’t quite bring myself to do it…

It nearly happened but I bottled it at the last minute.  The plan was to wear a dress or skirt for our street party this afternoon but as the day went on and the sun retreated behind the clouds I, once again, wimped out and wore trousers. 

The plan was to wear red, white and blue but as I don’t have any red trousers, I opted for my White Stuff pink ones (note to self: don’t have photos in pink clothes taken in front of pink front door), Hobbs NW3 shirt and as a nod to the “golden” part of the celebrations, I wore gold wedges. As you can see, it was all accessorised with a Union Jack.

This was our son’s contribution to the street party – a chocolate cake which he always makes all by himself, although I am always under strict instructions to get the exact ingredients that he wants for the topping. This time it was Maltesers. I must admit responsibility for the awesomely awful Union Jack!

So, on to the Union Jack scarf competiton winner! Pat Shergold is the lucky winner and once I have received confirmation from her that she is happy for me to share her entry with you, I will do so. Thank you so much to everyone who entered – it’s so lovely to hear from you all and I am only sorry that you couldn’t all win.

So, on to some exciting news about Style It Light, a new fashion blog that has been set up with

Look Magazine, Marie Claire and InStyle. Along with the guest bloggers from Marie Claire, Look and InStyle, I have been asked to contribute some articles each week.  Apparently I was shortlisted by the Marie Claire team from the blogger awards and invited to get involved.  It’s both an exciting and slightly nerve wracking opportunity and I wanted to  thank everyone who voted for me in the Marie Claire fashion blog of the year awards earlier this year, as without you this opportunity wouldn’t have come my way. To be honest I am not sure exactly what it entails but I will be sure to keep you posted!

So, now that the jubilee celebrations are well and truly over it’s life back to normal. I think we all need to make plans for some further celebrations – I don’t know what the reasons for them may be but as far as I am concerned, any excuse will do nicely!
