On the go: Nike Frees & another poncho…

Thankfifi- Asos grey cream poncho cape 5 ways - fashion blogger style challenge-8

I cannot tell a lie – as soon as I got my mitts of my first poncho, I knew it was only a matter of time before I added another.  The poncho fairy answered my prayers with a challenge from Asos Fashion Finder to style this baby 5 ways.  I’m game.

I keep gravitating back to this one for errands and dog walks because it’s just too easy.  And easy is good.  Especially when you get to Friday (we made it!).  The breton tee hardly needs and introduction; staple.  The leather legs I cuffed up inside a couple inches to share a little bit of ankle – I always think a flash of ankle is best with flats.  And I fully plan on single-handedly keeping the sneaker trend going forever – I have a dog, ‘nuff said.  But, the main event, the poncho, she’s a good one – goes with everything – or at least 5 things – check out how I styled it up for Asos here.

How gorgeous is Kelvingrove Park looking these days?  I’m dreading a windy day blowing all these colours away…

Melange (FR) : Mix (EN)

Thankfifi- H&M Trend sequin sweatshirt - fashion blogger streetstyle

Sparkles, stripes, rips and all – sometimes more is more and you can literally just pull it all together with a skinny waist belt.  This is the striped coat that just keeps on giving – love that the jersey is flexible enough I can fold the lapels back to belt it up like this to show the whole look… and it’s half price (shame I didn’t buy it on sale but I’d say I’ve had my money’s worth).

Can I talk about my sheep too?  Easiest DIY ever – think I’ll be making another this year…

In other news, I took the furry one for a run yesterday (dog not sheep).  He’s always been so slow.  Really painful.  Like ‘Look at the mean girl dragging that old dog out running’ toenails dragging on the pavement kind of slow.  Until I discovered his Achilles Heel – a tennis ball.  We set out with the ball then we stash it real near the start of the run.  Well, let me tell you, I could barely keep up with this kid on the way back he wanted that ball so bad.  Result.  Maybe it’s too little too late for our holiday in less than 4 weeks time (eep!) but it’s a start.  Anyone got a juice detox they wanna throw my way?

Doppelgänger

Thankfifi- fringed knee high boots - fashion blogger streetstyle-11

That moment when you’re standing in the street trying to decide just the point of the incline of the hill which will give the perfect ratio of autumn, yellow leaves in the background of your shot… and the sun ducks behind a cloud.  That’s a little awkward.  Blogger problems.  That moment when you perch on the wall to wait for the sun (in part because I am a sun lover and in part because I want to trick you into believing Glasgow has the most beautiful weather) and you glance uphill 50 yards and see yourself… no wait… not yourself… but close to that… a girl also wearing knee boots and a skirt and she’s there taking shots too.  That’s awkward on a whole other level.  But also like seeing a friend you’re just too shy to hey to.  Well, hello!

So… these boots.  Last year honestly I fell so hard for them because they reminded me in shape to the Givenchy’s of my dreams.  Fast forward to this year and fringing is big news.  Well, who knew… not I.  But don’t you just love it when that happens?  New trend : fringing… Wait, I got this one!  Happy Monday.x

Autumn layers & ‘I’m sorry’ chocolate

Thankfifi- sleeveless trench, breton top & ponyskin mules - fashion blogger streetstyle-13

A few of my favourite things together today.  That’s all there is to say about that.

Indulge me for a moment now… Imagine you cooked a wonderful meal (and you don’t have that much time to cook and usually your husband does most of it for you but, just this once, you did it, you cooked) and it was because your very good friend was coming to dinner.  And then imagine she forgot.  Straight up forgot.  That’ll make you feel special…  and that was my Wednesday night folks.  Ready meal for one coming right up…  Fear not, we rescheduled and last night we ate that homemade chilli together and she brought some ‘I’m sorry’ salted caramel dark chocolate and that stuff is da bomb (yep, I just said ‘da bomb’).

Hello Friday… where have you been all week?!

Before poncho

Thankfifi- On Elie beach - Ted Baker Furrly leather jacket & UGG Adirondack boots - fashion blogger streetstyle-9

Because not every day is a day full of fashion…  Because some days are all about the memories…  Because when October arrives in Scotland and you still head to the beach with a picnic, you may very well be the only folk there and that might just make it even better…  Because the little brown bear loves jumping waves and napping on the beach and because he doesn’t care if the sand sticks everywhere…  Because this was BP (Before Poncho – see here), I made do with my biggest scarf and wrapped myself right up…
