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

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?

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

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

Most Friday nights the neighbours catch us coming home from the local around 7pm and ask if we’re heading out… we’re not… we’ve been out and now it’s bedtime. We work late all week and now we’re ready for Netflix and shuteye. It’s pretty wild. Most Fridays.
Last Friday night Tia Maria were awfully nice and invited me along to experience the Tia Maria Dark Room at Hummingbird and things changed. I donned a new frock, the check dress that thinks she’s a shirt, and the leather legs and grabbed a friend. We had a plan – drink Tia Espressos, indulge in the treats on offer from WAH Nails and a new do from Toni & Guy, dance to Gemma Cairney’s tunes and be home, tucked up in bed by early o’clock (and that’s where it all went a bit off piste)…

Say hello to my new friend Tia & Ginger – ginger is a natural health remedy and, as I’ve been feeling a little under the weather, it seemed prudent to stock up on the medicine… Which helped me dance the night away to the best cheesy pop mix this little lady had to offer!
Toni & Guy turned me into a ballerina (definitely more of the black swan variety) and these guys shook up some more cocktails. I know he looks like he’s finger snapping to Gemma’s tunes… he’s not… he’s after my drink token. Fair exchange if you ask me… I’m after his drink. Perfect girls night! Thanks Tia Maria.x
