On the Run - A little bit of Hobbs, Zara and Reiss for a style event

Today I was going to bring you some photos of the pieces that I showed at today's Style Event - but it's currently throwing it down with rain and the bags are in the car - whereas I am in the house.  Having just got wet bringing the washing in, I don't fancy getting wet again but there will hopefully be an opportunity tomorrow to take some photos.

It was lovely to be invited back to a local firm of solicitors to do another Style Event for them today.  There were some familiar faces and some new ones, together with Pimms and scones with jam and cream.  It had been arranged by the female solicitors in the Commercial team and they had included elements that they would have liked at a networking event.  Nice thinking.
Despite being with a group of ladies for several hours, there wasn't an opportunity to get a photo in - hence the DIY bathroom shot.  All but our youngest were out when I got back (and the babysitter of course, just in case anyone thought that I had left a 4 yr old on her own) and I think that "Bananas in Pyjamas" was infinitely preferable to her than taking a photo of me - not that I blame her one jot.

It wasn't the easiest of outfits to pull together, given the heat (yipppeee) the fact that I have to lug a lot of bags around - although I was lucky to have lots of willing helpers - and the fact that when people are sitting and I am standing, there's a danger that they will be faced with my bare knees/thighs - so I need a bit of length to my dress.

So, the Hobbs silk one it was, which I bought for the bargain price of £50 in the sale a couple of years ago.   It had the length that I needed, together with some movement in the skirt. I swapped the belt, which makes the dress a bit too evening(y) for a Reiss cream leather belt, added Zara heels and I was good to go. I also wore my Reiss cuff, which I am very attached to at the moment. I think that all ladies need one of those dresses in their Wardrobe which they know will work for them when all else fails - or just isn't quite right. Tried and tested is often a good approach I find, especially when in doubt.

Here's a closer look at the frill on the front of the dress - great for adding a bit of volume where needed!!!

Hope that you are having fun in the sun.


  1. I'm liking the dress and the shoes. I wouldn't think to look for shoes in Zara but they look lovely. Also like the frill on that dress which is much clearer on the last photo. I have the same colouring as you which is very useful!

    1. Hi Froggy! Zara has some fab shoes generally at fairly good prices too, so def worth a look.

  2. Love the dress, and the shoes...also impressed by the shiny taps, bath and basin!

  3. Hi - I don't think anyone has ever complimented me on my shiny bathroom before so thank you, though I must admit I do have some help. You can always tell when my Mum has been because the kettle and toaster gleam too!
