Rolled Up Jeans..


What I wore~
  • Jacket : c/o House of Fraser
  • Shirt : Charity shop
  • Jeans : Calvin Klein
  • Shoe : F&F
I wore this outfit a few days ago. The day before the snow arrived again!! Phew it did not last long (the snow not the outfit, lol) The forecast says it will be back by the weekend, Great!?!

I reviewed this jacket from (House of Fraser here) and love it. It will be great for warmer weather, such a great colour for Spring don't you think? I teamed it up with this silky brown and cream polka dot shirt that I brought from the Charity shop a few years ago. Before I had nothing to go with this shirt, I do now.

My jeans are getting a little big now for some reason!?! They use to be a tight fit, not sure how this has happened !?! I'm sure with keep staying indoors looking after poorly children and not getting to the gym that they will fit nicely again soon! I thought these jeans would look nicer with a bit of a roll up on them? Showing a bit of ankle! bit chilly though as it is so cold outside, need my socks on! Lastly I picked up these cute gold shoes from Tesco just after Christmas in the January sale for a fiver, bargain eh?.


Loving brown and cream with a touch of denim thrown in for good measure...

Nottingham Christmas Shopping...

On Saturday me and my 2nd eldest son went into Nottingham for a spot of Christmas shopping. We were up  and out nice and early. Even before the shops were open so not be there when it was to busy and back home on the train before they got packed out too. Nottingham looks beautiful all trimmed up. Love the Winter Wonderland Christmas Market, can't wait to pop back with the little 2 when we have more time. 

To get into the Christmas spirit I wore my new Christmas jumper. How sweet is this penguin on the front?

Upcycled Trainers, Cut Off Jeans And A Day Exploring In Bakewell..


Don't you just love it when the weather is nice, children are off school and the husband has a rare Sunday off work?

It means 1 thing..

A day out exploring!!

Beats a day stuck inside or around the shops any time..


We love Bakewell and visit for the day often but this time we took to the peaks and walked for miles up the hills. The views were stunning, and we seen some cute sheep and lambs .


I love taking pictures of pretty flowers ..

It is great finding beauty in the wilderness..


Wearing my cut off jeans and comfy pimped up Reeboks


I am so unfit...

Half way up I was dying for a sit down with a cup of tea and a cake...

We even drank all the water we had at the start...

Next time I will remember to pack essentials...

Fizzy pop and sweets!!



The way down was the best..

We rushed to the nearest shop for pop.

"Do you want a carrier bag?", the man said.

Then looked at our faces, 

No? "Know there is some thirsty faces!!"

A big bottle of pop and a trip to the chip shop soon restored out energy levels ...

What I Wore : Mans Shirt Restyled!!







What I wore~

Headband ~ Primark
Shirt ~ Primark (mens)
Jeans ~ Calvin Klein
Shoes ~ Irregular Choice~ Patty

I am feeling very bouncy today. Yeah I managed my first long run in months yesterday, 10 miles :) Just a matter of adding another 16 miles on now before April  =-0!!

When my son left for university he cleared out lots of old clothes, some worn, some very worn and some never worn at all. After clearing most out to the recycled bin I did save some of the nice ones to refashion into something lady like for me.

After walking around the shops I noticed lots of ladies checked shirts looked so much like mens shirts. So here we have it, da da no up-cycling need on this one.

What do you think? It looks great fastened with my chunky red belt and red pencil skirt too.

Don't ya just love Irregular Choice shoes?

I am a little obsessed with them. If money was no object I would buy most all styles!! I love their designs. Here is one of my new pairs I got for Christmas. How great that they call each one a different name too... Meet Patty.

In other news, these jeans were to big before Christmas, now I managed to just squeeze into them :(

Eek and running feels so much harder last week but I realised on Sunday I had covered 34 miles for the week, so not all was bad. I really need to stop eatting treats, one leads to another..... Bumping the miles up quickly for the weeks I missed over Christmas worked out good but tiring. I was hoping for a quick road to fitness but I guess No pain no gain!!

Linking up with Tuesdays
