Too Early For Jumpers?

Jumper ~ Primark
Dress ~ Local shop in sale
Cosy tights ~ Primark
Shoes ~ Cheeky Shoes

Autumn has only just arrived and I have already been poorly 🙁 Last week I got a fever and was knocked off my feet for 2 days, the kind of illness when you just cannot stop sleeping.

On Saturday I knew I had to try a little race as it was only a week until my half marathon, (eek now only this Sunday).

I really think the rest sure did me good though, after a few weeks of pushing myself into running and spinning once the kids were back at school.

Park run is only 5k ( 3.1 miles ) so I knew its not to long to run if your not feeling well and I felt pretty good so went for it.

My best time in a year, 25 mins 21 sec so I was happy with that!! My 10 year old son was 2 minutes behind me this time, as he won me a few weeks back too, so now he is in training again!!

After a big cooked breakfast we went out shopping for the day as it was my husbands day off from work. I wrapped up warm and had chance to try out my new primark jumper, my cosy fleecy tights from last years sales and some cheeky shoes I was reviewing.

I had a nip into a charity shop where nothing caught my eye, as walking out the lady in the shop said “can I just say how lovely you look” aww when I was feeling sorry for myself, this cheered me up no end 🙂

Now lets hope I’m all fit and healthy for Sunday…

    When I admire an outfit, accessory, or something I try to compliment. Compliments are contagious! You look great in red:)

    Gotta love those random compliments from strangers that just make your day! 🙂 And I've begun getting all of my winter clothes out of storage, it's getting chillier!

    I'm thinking there is a culture difference here. To me, I could be wrong, a jumper is a one piece item that has large sleeves that you were a top or shirt or blouse under. But any rate, it isn't to early for that or for what you have on. Is yours a dress with a sweater on top of it? That is a new trend that I am seeing more and more of and I am digging. You may see some posts like that from me. I do love how you styled this outfit now matter what we term it. huh?
