Tia Maria Dark Room

Thankfifi- Missguided checked knotted shirt dress - fashion blogger streestyle

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

Transition

Thankfifi- DIY sheepskin clutch - knits & Birkenstocks_-5

Monday already?  With most of my weekend spent nursing a horrible cold and sipping home remedies (boiled and grated ginger, lemon and honey made by the sweet husband), Monday has indeed rolled around all too quickly.

Colds coupled with colder temperatures have me stuck in this awkward no man’s land where it’s certainly not summer, nor am I willing to let go…

The sliders reign supreme and coupled with a flash of shoulder (prettied up by this Asos lace steal – £6 – seriously?!), a hint of sunshine lies beneath the layers of fuzz and fluff… summer lives on.

Wedding showers

Thankfifi- Crochet lace midi skirt -fashion blogger streetstyle-7

I almost don’t want to say it out loud but something in the air has changed this week… the wind is a little fresher, the ground is a little wetter and the sun seems a little tired of showing face.  Perhaps summer is merely taking a break but , for now, the knits are back in rotation.

When I found this skirt in the Topshop sale it reminded me so much of my wedding dress, which I still completely love, and to have the chance to wear even just a part of that dress again, in skirt form, was too enticing to pass up.  It seems to be completely sold out now but this one and this one are very similar and also beautiful quality lace.

Happy Friday!  I have some fun events lined up this weekend and hope to see a few of your gorgeous faces this evening at Tia Maria Dark Room in Glasgow’s Hummingbird.  Now to decide what to wear…

Splits

Thankfifi- Yellow front split pencil skirt streetstyle-7

Splits are big news this season… and clearly my take on the trend is the banana split.  Baboomch.

Even though this skirt needs ironed every time you stand up, is ever so slightly transparent in the rear and is the most obnoxious banana hue – I like her.  Midis are my comfort zone; formal in length but fitted in form and the split just adds the right flash of leg.  Add to the mix that this one is only £13 in the sale and I’d say we have a winner.

And in other completely random news, if you need a laugh or just fancy a smile I highly recommend spending 7 seconds of your life watching this.  You are welcome.
