One dress, two different ways and both with blue shoes (although not suede ones in this case)….

This morning I attended a meeting at the offices of a local modelling agency. We were there to discuss the next event for Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, which is being held in October. It’s a great event, the aim of which is to showcase the work of the Jewellery Quarter to the rest of the City.  I love this particular event, not only for the fantastic people and the great atmosphere, but also because it means that I get to style models in lots of fab outfits whilst playing with diamonds and other beautiful jewellery at the same time.

Knowing that it was going to be a day of two halves in terms of activities, I wore the  Pia jersey dress from All Saints for the meeting. It’s easy to wear, comfortable and can be dressed up or down. For this meeting some blue heeled Hobbs shoes dressed it up (the leather jacket is good for warmth on slightly colder mornings)…

…and for this afternoon’s trip of  “back to school” jobs which included children’s haircuts, stationery buying and a trip to the Post Office, blue converse dressed it down. Keeping with the blue theme I also wore a lightweight NW3 blazer which I wore a lot last year – less so this – but it was nice to re-visit an old favourite.

How are those back to school preparations going in your homes? I know that some children have already gone back, some are starting tomorrow and others start next week.  For anyone with children starting new schools, at whatever age, good luck!

    My daughter is starting 6th form this term. No uniform!! Have never bought so many clothes for her. I see that I will have to get her up an hour earlier than normal so she can decide what to wear
