The last week has been glorious in Glasgow. I’m trying to ignore the fact that it’s raining today & keep the faith that summer isn’t over. Since sun is never guaranteed I took full advantage of it & cracked out summery togs.
On Saturday I was off to visit Mum with my sis. Mum’s village is really pretty in the sun. We took advantage of the weather to take her poodles for a nice long run around & some baths. Then treated mum to a wee cake in the cutest little cafe.
My niece had facetimed me whilst I was getting dressed & wanted to help pick my outfit. Athena was disappointed by the lack of pink in my wardrobe, but she did manage find a kimino that ticked her boxes. So, in conjunction with my favourite girl I put together this hippie/90’s hybrid.
We teamed tie dye & The Beatles with a hankie skirt & jelly shoes. I should take Athena’s styling advice more often as I felt amazing in this get up.
Kimino – Alice & You
Skirt – Primark
Beatles Vest – H&M
Jelly Shoes – Forever21
I thought since Australia was such a big influence on my new outlook that I’d do one more Brisbane outfit. I’ve had this maxi dress for a few years, but have never managed to get much wear out of it in Glasgow. It’s the sort of garment that requires sunshine, something we are sadly lacking in here. It was one of the first items in my suitcase & I was eager to wear it.
Dress – Gift
Vest – H&M
Sunglasses – Topshop
Satchel – Target
I’ve always been a hippie chick meaning this multi coloured tie dyesque design is right up my street. It has some cute beaded details under the bust & on the straps, which I’m fond of. The halter neck is a gift for those if us who have been blessed in the breast department. It holds them firmly in place giving a great silhouette. The halter does also mean it is a tad too booby, but that’s easily solved by popping a vest underneath.
In short this dress is very bold & funky. Just like me.
Here are some shots from Brisbane. Happy memories.
I miss the view from my brother’s balcony.

I stayed at a hotel right in the middle of the city for a few days & I used to eat sushi in this square. You can’t get a proper idea of it from this picture, but it was a gorgeous mix of old & new architecture.
