Mum on the Run – A very stylish lady in a great weekend outfit with lovely colours, courtesy of Whistles, Boden, H&M and a Newcastle boutique.

I really want to say such a big “Thank you” to everyone who read yesterday’s post and/or commented on it.


You all said a lot of things about the Pavilions campaign, from how you liked the clothes, to how nice it was to see a “real” woman fronting it, to how the outfits have provided ideas and inspiration. It means a lot to me to have the support of so many lovely women – and I just wanted you all to know that!


After yesterday, I thought that today I would give you a rest from me prancing around in fancy frocks and instead bring you my lovely friend Vicky, who always looks stunning – whenever and wherever.


Vicky is one of those ladies who is always immaculately turned out – the kind of lady who always has hand cream and a proper hanky in her bag, of which she has a fine selection – (bags that is, not hankies, but probably hankies as well)!  


Vicky is my partner in crime on our day trips to Leeds, which is the half way point between our respective homes. We try and meet a couple of times a year for some lunch at Harvey Nichols, a good catch up and a spot of shopping, naturally. We also swap stories of anything new we may have bought, how good it was, how it wore, whether it was good value – the usual girlie stuff really!



On Saturday morning we managed to get an hour or so together.  The scarf that Vic is wearing is from Whistles and she picked out the vibrant blue and yellow colours in it in her bag (Newcastle boutique) and her cardi (Boden).  She also layered a H&M breton style top underneath it (we both rate them). Her boyfriend style jeans are from Esprit (free delivery and returns) and her boots are from Clarks (which she bought with a discount code).  Such a fantastic outfit for a weekend away involving lots of children. Ah, such a lovely friend!


As an aside, we thought it was jolly good of the Council to make sure that their barriers matched her outfit!

    Hi Ekaterina – good to hear from you. Thanks for your good wishes re the new campaign and thanks for your comments re Vicky's outfit – they are great boots for her as she has such slim legs. No cankles for her to hide, I can tell you!

    Lovely look and nice detailing on the boyfriend jeans. I love the Whistles scarf – I was coveting that over the summer but somehow still managed to miss out in the end … too many other shopping goodies which got in the way I think.

      Hi Sue – the Whistles scarf is out but in a different print which I noticed the Duchess of Cambridge wearing on her recent trip – not that that's a reason to get it but it is lovely!

      Hi Gillian – brilliant, a ready made outfit. You ought to try going bikini shopping with her – now that's what I call demoralising!!!
