Dungarees are all over the place at the moment, so much that I decided it was time for me to get my own pair too. First I ordered short dungarees but sent them back quickly as I didn’t feel comfortable in them – I felt too old for this particular pair to be honest!
A few weeks ago we visited a pop-up expo consisting of pavilions designed by five different European cities. The expo was a part of the Scotland-wide Festival of Architecture that is celebrated throughout 2016 with various different events, exhibitions, tours and walks. Whilst there I realised that my outfit reflected the earthy colours of the wood, so I asked Matthew to take a few photos.
The other week we were viewing a flat in Leith (yes, we’re thinking about buying again…) and since we were in the area I wanted to visit a cafe/vintage shop/art gallery on Lyne Street in Abbeyhill that I was clued in on through Instagram. As soon as we stepped inside I took a liking to the place and decided I want to do a blog post to support the shop. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera, so photos aren’t great I’m afraid…
It never ceases to amaze me how much Lana copies us! When Matthew was taking some outfit photos of me the other day Lana was running around exploring the terrace and minding her own business. When we were finishing off Lana suddenly decided it was time for her to step into the limelight and carefully backed up against the same wall I had been standing against. She stood there posing for a few moments and let daddy snap some photos before scooting off again. Another reminder of just how much kids really pick up!
Spring has gotten to me once again and I’ve just HAD to purchase a few new items…Such as this patterned monochrome skirt I found in Zara. Unfortunately I got it in a size too big – but guess it’s more suited for work being a bit longer haha (new job is another good excuse to go shopping by the way!)
I was experimenting with making my own online collages using Polyvore and thought I’d share my very basic creation here as well. It’s actually quite fun, and free to use if you want to try it out! This is a collage of things I’m dreaming of buying (should maybe get a job first though!).
I still remember a lovely light grey/blue turtleneck jumper I had around 10 years ago, and now wish I had saved it even though I thought I’d never wear a turtleneck again! But somehow history always repeats itself and here I am dressed in one – and very much liking it. Especially the lovely dark green colour. They’re so practical too, keeping you warm in the windy and cold Burgh 🙂
