On the Run - In a spotty dress as seen in Red Magazine

Today I was up in Cheshire and because the occasion demanded that I dress up a little, I wore this spotty Hobbs dress which I bought a while ago.  To brighten it up a little I put it with a skinny pinky red belt.  I also carried my newly found tote which I haven't been parted from since it was re-discovered in my husband's Wardrobe. I have no idea what it was doing there - it's not as if I have pinched at least a half of his Wardrobe for my clothes or anything.


As this is quite a pretty dress, with its ties at the bottom of the sleeves, at the neck and with the frill around the bottom,  I chose my shoe boots to stop it from looking either too girly, or too dated.  Before I left the house, I asked my husband to choose which shoes he preferred.  He looked at them and said that they looked great - so great he hadn't even realised that I had different shoes on different feet.

Here's a closer picture of the belt which was also from Hobbs - please forgive the fact that I have not positioned it to cover the seam on the dress. You can also see the frill at the bottom of the dress which was given a name by Grazia the other week - it was a play on "peplum" and could have been pep-hem, or hemplum or something like that. Apparently they are the height of cool at the moment which, as you can imagine, is obviously why I bought the dress in the first place.

This is the same dress that was also featured in this month's edition of Red Magazine - it's on page 30 and they show you how to style it four different ways. I like their ideas but I think I'll probably make my own ideas up as I go along.

On Saturday I said that I was going to make another three tiered chocolate cake with our son - well here was the result.  As you can imagine, it doesn't look much like this now.

I was gutted to have missed today's episode of the TV series Doctors as our house featured in it, as do many of the houses around here.  I did catch a clip of it at the end of Friday's episode though. Seeing a man standing on our doorstep dressed up as a woman was something again. I fear that this may be as interesting a story line as some of the others which have included a murder, STDs, extra-marital affairs - you name it, it all goes on behind the pink front door!

Today's outfit: Hobbs dress and belt, Jigsaw shoe boots, Coccinelle bag


  1. Hope today went well! You will have certainly impressed them with that lovely outfit x

    1. Hi Avril - thank you! I will just have to wait and see now...

  2. Very smart outfit. Your outfits always look effortless. I hope you wore a coat because it was very cold today!
    Have you ever done a blog on tying scarves. I have loads but never know how to tie them other than loop it round and leave two ends hanging but what about squares it doesn't work for them. Angela Kennedy Style Director of W&H says we must never tie them like an air hostess! Not sure what she means by that. Sorry to be anonymous but that's all I could manage. Very new to this blogging lark.SJ Northampton

    1. Hello and thank you for your comment - I did wear a blazer! Don't worry about being new to this blogging lark - I often feel like that too and am still nervous of pressing the wrong button! There are lots of videos on You Tube on how to tie scarves - here's a link to one on how to tie a scarf 25 different ways - or something like that. I think seeing it in action would probably do a better job than I could!

  3. What colour tights are you wearing? I never know if black tights are ok with blue or not!!

    1. Hi Elizabeth - I was wearing M&S navy blue 60 denier tights but as my shoes were black, in theory I should have been wearing black. But you know what? I don't worry too much about mixing black and navy - a bit of a mix is fine!
