What I Wore And Back To The Gym...

Hope your having a lovely Wednesday?

I have been back at the gym today after a few weeks away. First it was the school holiday keeping me from going, then last week I got a really bad cold. Today I felt like I was starting again.

Just over a mile run with my dog Mollie after the school run, felt like really hard work so I booked in 2 classes at the gym to make me exercise!!

A 45 minute body pump class and a 45 spinning class did the job!! After the bike ride home and a bar of chocolate I felt good again!

Fun In Nottingham...

Last Saturday me, hubby and two youngest children all got to meet up with our eldest Sons/ little 2's Brothers in Nottingham for the day. I think study; Uni sounds like none stop parties for the first few weeks!

Youngest of the 2, sounds like he has freshers flu, or just a little horse from all the late nights out and shouting.

It was great to get to see them, things are so quiet around here since they left. I got to hear all about what they have been up to! Well I'm sure I didn't get to know everything!!

I could not resist a quick shoe picture in the Autumn fallen leaves...

Checking out my phone at the train station. Also texting a friend to tell her about knocking 4 minutes off my Parkrun time from only a few weeks ago.

So many tempting stalls on Nottingham market. Especially the sweets and cake ones. Well I did knock 4 minutes off my race!

A family selfie. We took a few, but it was hard finding a perfect picture were we are all looking at the camera and no one had their eyes closed! Daughter had to bend down to fit  me in. Wow I feel small!

My 2nd eldest telling me some of the things he has been working on at Uni.

Train home and a happy me. After seeing my sons both fit and well . Well almost as fit and well as before they left. One son has lost 5lb in weight..

What I wore:

Gillet : Republic
Blouse :Primark
Jeans : Calvin Klein
Shoes : Converse c/o JD Sports
Bag : Cath Kidston

Wiw : Autumn Style And Mustard Tights..

After being spoilt in September with a lovely and warm few weeks of sunshine, this week has been a lot cooler! A real Autumn chill is now in the air. Time now to think of warmer clothes. Long sleeved t-shirts, jumpers and thick cosy tights. Not forgetting to mention granny slippers and onsies!

Last week we had a lovely afternoon; family meal out. 

So I grabbed this sweet cream jacked out of the wardrobe, that I had not worn since Spring and my favourite Autumn mustard colour tights.

First time I had wore this brightly patterned skirt that I picked up early this year off the Primark sale rail. I do love it but it is hard finding things to match with it.

I brought these glitter shoes in the sales at Tesco in January and have been saving them for best, but then got fed up of waiting to wear them!

What I Wore:

Jacket : Jane Norman c/o House Of Fraser
Long sleeved t-shirt : c/o Bonprix
Skirt : Primark
Tights : Primark
Shoes : F&F Tesco

Do you save things to wear for best, then forget to wear them?

Outfit of The Week : What I Wore...

This week I have mostly been wearing running kit or jeans for walking the dog.

So it makes a lovely change to dress up once in a while.

A few days ago I got chance to review these gorgeous Hanneli Mustaparta shoe/boots and now I'm waiting for somewhere special to go!

Hanneli Mustaparta Collaboration with Deichmann...

 My all time dream job would be a shoe designer.

I have always loved shoes . Shoes Shoes and more Shoes!

I can remember sneaking into my Mums wardrobe when I was little, looking at her shoes collection. Then dancing around in the mirror when no one was looking, in her over sized fancy heeled shoes.

Imagine the start of the movie Kinky Boots dancing away in my own little world!!

Colour : I Will Wear What I Like...

Last weekend we spent a couple of days in London.

Whisking away our two youngest along with a few clothes, we set off to the Capital to celebrate our 19th Wedding Anniversary.

We usually spend every Anniversary on a holiday to Blackpool. Where me and my Hubby first went away together. Many moons ago!! My 2 oldest boys are all grown up now doing their own thing. So it is just the 4 of us who get away together.

What I Wore : Walking The Puppy...

Hope you are all having a lovely summer?

We have been having so much fun taking Mollie for a walk in the woods. 

Even though it is summer and some days are red hot, I have been wearing my jeans on or maxi dresses. 

There is a good reason for this!! 

Mollie jumps up all the time and she has such sharp claws!!
