Looking at the Autumn shade…

Last Saturday I was feeling a touch of cabin fever. So, I made myself look as presentable as possible & popped out to see a film.  Sold out movie & other cinema fails put paid to that plan. Hence, we retreated to Starbucks & had a nice long gab. 

I took some pictures thinking they’d be   useless, but it turns out I didn’t look quite as rough as I thought. It’s jumper dress time again & this one combines my fav colour with my go to style. Teamed with my new boots it’s the ideal Autumn ensemble.

She’s so cold…

Oh man, it is cold. This will be my constant refrain until next summer (if we get one). So, if I have to be freezing for months on end I’ll be doing it in style. Enter my chilly wish list.

I am still enthralled by velvet, but camel & faux fur are quickly creepy into affections. I’m dreaming of a soft & warm winter; with a tiny wee splash of glamour.

To me you are a work of art….

Apologies for my sporadic blogging. My body is really trolling me at the moment, which means I’ve had to be really careful how I use my spoons. this post covers a day out from weeks ago. Better late than never, eh?

Ever since the neon went up on The Gallert of Modern Art I have been dying to check out the exhibition of work from Glasgow School of Art. There were some stunning pieces. My particular favourite was this painting by Victoria Morton. 

  
I was also rather fond on the mirrored handbags in this piece. 

  
I can never visit GoMA without taking pictures in the mirrored entrance. I really love this one, even though my Dad appears to have lost his head. 

  
I’ve been searching for the right pinafore type dress for months, finally I found it. I’ll be able to style this piece a million ways, which pleases me. I foresee it being an autumn/winter favourite.

We followed up GoMA with lunch, beer & a pedicure. In my book that’s pretty perfect Saturday. 

Look how pretty my little tootsies are. 

  
 

She wore blue velvet…

I took a little time out of being spoiled on Monday & snapped some pics. It was a bright sunny day & I was sporting a bright sunny outfit. So, click click.

  

Skirt – Forever21

Leggings – Etsy

Vest – Primark

This outfit was a bit of a rush job as I faffed around all morning & then had to jump in the shower with only 40 minutes left to get ready. I have to say though, I am quite pleased with the results. My all time favourite skirt, paired with comfy vests & galaxy leggings totally works.

 

Pure shores….

A few weeks ago I went on a wee road trip with my sister, Billy & Seb. We set off on Sunday morning in dubious weather to check out Elie. It never fails to surprise me how beautiful Scotlamd is. We drove through glorious scenery, growing more excited as we began to spy glimpses of the sea. I had been craving the sea for a while, something about the endless sky & lapping water at the beach always calms me. 

On arrival the unpredictable weather was for once in our favour. The sun shone on our seaside floricks. Seb had an absolute ball meeting lots of new doggie friends & exploring the gentle waves. The two legged members of our party relaxed with a yummy picnic & some chat. We of course also took advantage of our surroundings for a blog shoot.

Our love was so comfortable….

If you are a regular reader you will already have heard me complaining about the weather & my health. In case you missed it, I’ll catch you up really quick; it’s cold & I feel crap. These two factors have combined to make me crave slouchy, cosy layers. Obviously I still want to look lovely, lovely & so I have winkled out some bits that fit my brief.

I’m very keen to swathe myself in tactile fabrics that feel friendly against the skin. I’m also going for stretchy unrestrictive pieces to soothe my poor sore body & vibrant, quirky prints to maintain my nifty aura. In short, leggings, tunic, cardi’s & flats are what I’m gonna be rocking.

Wildflowers….

On Sunday I embarked on a wee visit to see my Mum, which descended into a mad wild goose chase. Much frustration & losing of tempers later we rescued the day with lingerie shopping & cake. 

It goes without saying that we also found time for a little blog shoot. I was tempted out into the wind by this bed of pretty flowers. I’ve become a bit of a wild flower devotee. Not only do I love their, well, wild beauty, the are a life source for our bees. If you weren’t aware, our bees are in danger & we really need them. 90% of vegetable crops depend on bee pollination. Those fuzzy bellied little guys are very useful. So, if you have a place to do so, plant some wild flowers. 

  
Anyway, after my own little detour, I will get back on point. I threw together a couple of items that were meant to see me through the a long hot summer, but actually require leggings & cardi to be wearable. In Scotland we work with what we’ve got. 

  
I’m glad this sheer shirt works with layers as I love it. It’s nice to know I can get some wear out of it as the seasons change.

Everybody walk the dinosaur…

My photographer & I both had rough weeks. By Friday we were more than ready for a pick me up. The sun lured is outside for a cocktail & the prospect of dinosaurs coaxed us back in. 

  

A hot day calls for something floaty & this shirt dress was just the thing. Paired with a lace effect dress I felt chic, not to mention comfortable. 

Leaving the cinema to balmy summer’s night tempted us into a little  blog shoot. I love photos taken in the last gasps of day light. That soft glow works for me.

The dinosaurs were marvellous. As with the others in the franchise Jurassic World seems to be very much on the side of giant lizards. I’m all for a summer blockbuster that’s telling humans to stop fucking with nature. 

Last, but not least, a few snaps of my city basking in the summer sun.
