Red shoes, No knickers

Chic comforts

Having only recently discovered the gorgeous Jamie Beck, of From me to you blog, I have been obsessed with her beautiful photography ever since.  Not only is she a brilliant photographer but she is always impeccably dressed.  Having scoured her outfit posts here I stumbled across this cute little video and wondered what it was that I loved about her outfit so much.  Then I realised it was becasue she looked really well put together ~ stylish, chic ~ but essentially she looked comfortable.  Her clothes weren’t getting in the way of her day {taking photos, running, throwing leaves} and that is something I am currently aiming for.

For me a skirt that sits on my waist and doesn’t restrict me from eating or riding my bike is a big Michael Winner.  Next, a thin knit that keeps my body temperature at a comfortable level is essential.  And lastly, due to a bad back and being in training for a half marathon, a flat lace up means that should I have left the house that morning and been on the go for 13 hours ~ my body might have been weary but feet would have been fine. 🙂  This is a very good outfit. I am extremely happy with it.

In this outfit I rode a bike, went to work, cleaned the kitchen, hurdled, lunged, skipped and ran for a bus, did the splits and kayaked down the Thames*
