New age wrist party

Thankfifi- Daniel Wellington St. Andrews Rose Gold watch - fashion blogger streetstyle-8

It’s not always easy to smile on Monday’s but ever since my rose gold St. Andrews Lady arrived from Daniel Wellington, she’s been on my wrist making me smile.  The wrist party has pared back for me over the years, choosing delicate pieces over statement pieces and becoming altogether more ladylike as my style matures (I’m still wearing a tank top, I know, don’t want to be completely grown up).

And if you fancy one of your own, the kind folks over at Daniel Wellington are offering 15% any watch purchase with the code SUN-FIFI until 15th Sept.  Obviously I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for my St. Andrews Lady but the Glasgow Lady came a close second (for obvious reasons!)…

The un-trench

Thankfifi- Missguided being sleeveless trench coat - fashion blogger streetstyle-12

When it’s almost coat weather but just not quite… a trench with no sleeves for 20 bucks does the job rather nicely.  It looked even better flying behind me as I rode my Nextbike into town (People Make Glasgow, didn’t you know?) but the logistics of getting that shot, when my photographer is also on a Nextbike, were dangerously not in my favour.

Over and out.  Happy Friday!x

Reworking lace

Thankfifi- Lace, leopard & stripes - fashion blogger streetstyle-11

Sometimes it just feels right to throw on every texture and print you own.  Well, you know, it’s me so prints only really stretch to spots and stripes.  But I’ve been eyeing up a lot of images on Pinterest of pencil skirts with boots and striped tees and I thought to myself, hold the bus just a moment, I might just have all the ingredients for that.

I know I wore the lace pencil skirt super recently but I just couldn’t resist another shot.  I don’t like to play favourites – I am that kid who couldn’t part with any cuddly toys because they must all be equal for fear of offending (and they are still ALL together, equally happy, in my playroom in the family home – my bedroom is long gone but those stuffed animals, they’re just up there, hanging out, happy).  But… this skirt is my fav.  Gah, there, said it.  Major sorry to this one and this one but sometimes, when the new kid on the block ticks all the boxes, when I’m pushed, I’ll play favourites.  And this one’s it.

Do you play closet favourites?  Do you keep a nice even rotation or do you have a favourite that you wear and wear and don’t even want to wash because then you can’t wear it for a day?

Upgrade the basics

Thankfifi- red sohpia backpack by LK Bennett - fashion blogger streetstyle-2

Doesn’t get more basic than jeans and a tee and these two are in constant rotation (last worn here).  Upgraded with the essential stripes, for you know I am an addict, the coat is a steal at half price on sale.  Shots of red, post box included, hopefully keep a little bit of summer in the mix.

Start of a new week… let’s do it.x

Bubble by GOMA

Thankfifi- H&M Trend bubble dress, GOMA Glasgow - fashion blogger streetstyle-9-2

Two frocks in one week?  Well this is most unusual… Jeans expected to be back in full rotation next week.

Maybe the bubble hem is not the most pleasing for your man’s eye but there’s surely the certain allure of leaving something to the imagination that, say for example, a bodycon would not.  The fact that the silhouette of this H&M number is oddly reminiscent of that Stella dress is merely a coincidence I assure you…

Shooting pre party in Royal Exchange Square by GOMA is a nice change too – looking at these shots I can’t help thinking that Glasgow’s  such a pretty little thing.

Have a great weekend everyone.x
