Mum on the Run - Sparkles and silver shoes for an early evening "do"

Yesterday evening I was invited to a networking event at Selfridges in Birmingham. It was one of those early evening do's which was exciting for me as usually at 6pm I am in the midst of the taxi/dinner/bath time/bed time routine which don't get me wrong, I love - but it's always good to have a change.
I also came away with a tin of shortbread biscuits in my goodie bag, which I wasn't quite expecting but which was brilliant as I am a shortbread fiend. A good friend always makes me some for Christmas (actually it's for the family but they don't get a look in) and I love that present, not only for the fact that she's taken the time to make it but because it's so delicious.

So with it being an early evening event and with it being cold, I wore these blue trousers which I bought in the Whistles sale last summer (similar below), together with a Whistles sparkly knit (great for putting layers underneath) also below and in the sale, and these silver shoes from Zara. I can't see the shoes online now but there's a picture below as they may be lurking in a store somewhere in the sale. They were £29.99 full price so clearly not leather but I like the design and the medium heel height. With a closed in toe there's no need for a perfect pedi, which is a bonus in my need for speed (OK, lazy arse) book.

Whistles Elliott crepe trousers (£60)
Zara silver shoes - there may be some lurking somewhere!
Hope that you all have a lovely weekend - fingers crossed for some sun tomorrow.
