Too Early For Jumpers? No, Bring Back The Sunshine

Too Early For Jumpers? No, Bring Back The Sunshine

Too Early For Jumpers? No, Bring Back The Sunshine. Hello friends.

Autumn has only just arrived and I have already been poorly ๐Ÿ™ 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.

Too Early For Jumpers? No, Bring Back The Sunshine:

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.ย 

I wrapped up warm and had chance to try out my new Primark jumper, my cosy fleecy tights from last years salesย and some cheeky shoes I was reviewing.

I had a nip into a charity shop where nothing caught my eye, as you do. 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,ย this cheered me upย no end ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    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?

      Yeah thats right, I am loving wearing a jumper with a dress, makes it feel like a new outfit, need to try some more ๐Ÿ™‚

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