OOTD: Purple Crop Top

Posted on

I never thought I’d sport a crop top at my age and especially not after giving birth – but after becoming a mother I’m somehow more comfortable in my own skin than ever before. Obviously my “mature” age also plays a role, plus that my tummy seems to be flatter post-birth (!!!) It might be just in my head, but still!

Outfit Of The Day – Grey Jersey Dress

Posted on

I’ve decided that I want to do more outfit posts, so here we go! I thought I’d start by showing off my new grey jersey dress I bought whilst in Finland, worn with one of my favourite second hand knits. It’s very comfy, goes well with both sneakers and heels and is just my style.

Sunny Saturday

Happy Saturday folks! It’s so nice to be able to fit in my old clothes again – it’s like having a whole new wardrobe to try out! So this sunny Saturday I rediscovered my favourite skirt (inherited from my granny), my favourite necklace (second hand), my favourite cardigan (Monki), my favourite bag (from Mexico) – and introduced them to a new addition: a striped shirt I bought in a charity shop last week. All ready to go out for some lunch 🙂

Saturday's Outfit

A few weeks ago I entered a competition on the lovely Elisabeth’s blog Dragonfly and was lucky enough to win a necklace by Iki Koru – a Finnish jewellery collection made from recycled materials. The necklace is just my style, so I was over the moon when I won 🙂

Blond is back!

I usually don’t treat myself to a visit to the hairdresser’s more than once a year, so had forgotten what a mood-booster a new look can be! I’m 100% happy with my decision of going back to blonde – I feel more like myself now.

Saturday Shopping

Advocate's Close Edinburgh Old Town

Hello from a very rainy Edinburgh! We’ve just come home from a little shopping spree on Princes Street, completely soaked. Matthew’s going to Lisbon for a week with the lads, so he needed some summer clothes, and we didn’t come home empty handed. I might’ve also bought myself a little something…:)

My New Hair!

Here it finally is; my fringe!

After 3 years of cutting my own hair (the hairdresser said my hair was almost 2″ longer in the back haha) I decided that it’s time for a proper haircut. And it was worth the effort, it’s such a mood lifter to have a new look! Matthew thinks he has a new girlfriend now, that’s how unadventurous I’ve been when it comes to my head in the past…Might still dye it darker though, will have to see what it looks in daylight first.

Ciao a tutti!

Hope you’re all having as nice a Sunday as I am. The sun has been shining all day for a change, and I feel very energetic as I’ve been to the gym and then climbed Arthur’s seat, followed by a super healthy quinoa-black bean-salmon salad for lunch. Slightly better than the hangover yesterday…
