Mum on the Run – 3 outfits for progressively colder days – at this rate I’ll be in my long johns before long!

Be gone Shane Warne! That’s sorted him out. I’m quite impressed that I managed to uninstall a program on my computer. I didn’t even know that you could do such a thing but apparently you can, hence his demise.


Today’s post is outfit based and shows just a few of the things that I have been wearing this week during the miserably cold and utterly pants weather we’ve been having. In actual fact that’s not strictly true because the first outfit was taken on Sunday when the sun shone (ish). I’m really posting them because my Mum likes to see what I have been up to, rather than because anyone is likely to go “oooh, that outfit is great, I’ll give it a whirl”.


So this one was made up of a Topshop sparkly top, Gap boyfriend jeans and giraffe print converse. It worked for dashing around at home, especially as there were 9 of us over the weekend.



School run outfit of Gap boyfriend jeans again, French Connection striped jumper, Kew short trench, All Saints shoes and Boden sunglasses – because despite the cold the sun came out in the afternoon. It was the best that I could do given the temperature!


And yesterday I just thought “oh bugger it” time to get the fur back out. It was so cold that I put it on over a Whistles grey jumper with yellow sequins on it, H&M yellow necklace, Mulberry bag, Gap skinnies and Ash wedge trainers.  I had LOTS of shopping to do yesterday so needed to be warm, hands free (hence the cross body bag) and comfortable (hence the wedge trainers).


It would be lovely to bring you some amazing summer clothes (in whatever guise) for a change but it’s just not happening – not yet for a while at least. However I will take some photos of outfits that I will be showing at tomorrow’s style event which contain lots of print and colour so hopefully that will brighten everyone up a little.

    I'm on the verge of giving up on summer. I keep looking at sandals and then wondering whether it'll be worth spending money on something that only gets worn for about a day!

      Hi Kate – me too! In fact most of the ladies I shop with at the moment are buying pieces for all year round, rather than things specifically for summer. It's just not worth it is it? Such a shame though. x

      Hi Anne – ah, lovely to hear from you. You're so right – I keep sneaking the heating on too, though it has been boiling here today. All so random! Hope that you and the family are all well.

    Well if there is one silver lining to all this horrible weather, it will mean the summer sales will be mega! Not so good for the retailers though!!xx

      That's true – just need a nice holiday somewhere hot to wear any bargains now. Not sure that Wales will count on that front! Thanks for dropping by.
