Mum on the Run - in a sparkly knit, utility trousers and wedge desert boots

I know! Impressively scruffy eh? By the time the rain stopped it was nearly the end of the day.
It was really chilly here this morning, hence the layers of shirt and jumper. I haven't worn my GAP utility trousers for ages, so thought that I would dig them out - but I will be burying them again soon as I have other black trousers that I prefer.
Days like today are quite good for trying out things to see whether you still like them - all in the comfort of your own home and without anyone seeing you - until you go and do something daft like post them on a blog for the world to see.
I do like wedge desert boots with skinny jeans/trousers though. I can't bring myself to wear "proper" boots yet but it was too cold for wedge sandals or any other kind of summer heels, so they fitted the bill.
I have a hectic two days coming up.  Tomorrow I am on a mammoth shop, choosing outfits for a photo shoot, with the shoot taking place all day on Friday.  So if I don't get a chance to blog, it's because I am buried under an avalanche of clothes!
Today's outfit: Warehouse jumper, GAP trousers and shirt, Jigsaw necklace, New Look boots.



  1. you still look gorgeous and stylish!
    I have winter boots on and for good measure I wore a duffle coat today!!

    1. Ah, thank you Fiona. Hey, a duffle coat in August - you really are part of the fash pack aren't you?! (or just cold!) Next you will be wearing S/S '13 next Feb in the snow - that always makes me laugh!

  2. Hi Beth! You are keeping very busy I see:) Just this morning I had a bit of a closet changeover and found a lovely sparkly jumper from last winter!!:) Thanks for the inspiration :)

    1. Hi Anne - yes, it's busy but exciting so that's good. What a fab find - I love it when that happens. It's usually in my ironing basket that I find things! Look forward to seeing your jumper on your blog.

  3. Ooh, I like your jumper. I've seen a lot of sparkly jumpers on the rails in the last few weeks. Definitely plan to invest in one. Nothing like a little sequin to brighten up the winter days.

    1. Hi, you are so right and unusually for this time of year, there are plenty around and at all different price ranges. Have fun hunting one down and do let me know what you find!

  4. Definitely a chill in the air Beth - I had a cardigan on today! Love the mix of sparkles with utility trousers, Avril x

    1. Hi Avril - hope all good with you. I hope that the chill was temporary and that some balmy days are on their way! x

  5. I love that jumper! My ankle boots have been out all week although i'm hoping this warm weather predicted will actually materialise for September.

    Hope to see you on sat at HN! - Laura.
