Sheer fringing - festival outfit inspiration



When looking for a festival outfit, or any outfit this season it's hard to ignore all the fringing, I for one am a major tassel fan bit if floral or suede isn't for you then how about something sheer? Kimono's are really versatile and they don't have to be reserved for the beach! I love that this kimono is long, sheer and there are no tassels on the sleeves to get in the way! Paired with some acid wash high waisted hotpants and a simple white vest this is definitely a statement outfit! Wear with layers of necklaces and TUK Anarchic boots for a proper punk vibe, perfect for a trip to punk rock holiday! Don't forget to enter the competition to win a pair of the boots and remember to size up!

Flower child - festival outfit inspiration



Festival season is upon us and whether your heading to Glastonbury, Download, Wickerman or Burning man (I wish) outfit choices can be hard, plus taking more than one pair of shoes is just wasteful packing...you need all that space for bottles of water right? So I have styled the ultimate TUK festival boots for you so you don't have to stress about what to wear! TUK are giving away a pair of these awesome Anarchic boots for you guys to rock all summer! Just head here to enter, oh and if you win (fingers crossed) make sure you size up, I'm a 6 but had to get a 7 as they are a little snug.

For my first look I decided to go all out flower child...well my version anyway! This look would be perfect for Burning man, Wickerman or a picnic in the park if your not heading to any festivals this year! I've always loved cute little dresses and boots, blame my grungy youth or obsession with Hole if you will but I still stand by the fact that it is an awesome combo. I'm so in love with this little lace number from Obscure Couture, their new collection is a dream come true! Flower crown is optional but if you do decide on one go fresh! Either make your own or buy one from an awesome florist, it will start to fade after a couple of days but I love dying flowers, there is something so morbid and beautiful about it. Layer your jewellery for a statement look, obviously henna is a choice but I love the impact it makes with these Annie Haak bracelets. Cover up, or in this case snuggle up with an oversized pastel knit at night if you get a little chilly or if you are going to any festival in the UK, just make sure your bff doesn't try and steal it!

Topshop x Blow an event not to be missed!

You only need to know one thing this weekend, how to get to Blow Finnieston! 


This weekend (May 23rd 10am - 6pm) Topshop personal shopper's will be descending on Blow armed with styling tips, this season's must haves, key wardrobe pieces and summer perfect sandals. Not only are Topshop on hand to fix your wardrobe dilemmas, Blow will be providing complimentary braids from their new braid bar, nibbles and drinks from Gusto Glasgow and the first 50 through the door get a luxury Topshop x Blow goodybag...oh and did I mention it's free?!


Last night I headed down to Blow to check out a little preview of this weekend's event and make sure it was worthy of your time...the answer is yes! I went in knowing I needed some new summer staples but unsure of  what to get, I left with a head full of fringing, gladiators and the sound of suede....and to top it all off I got an amazing my little pony inspired braid for the weekend.




What are you waiting for?! Book your taxi/train/plane for this not to be missed event, take home all your new styling knowledge and a head full of glorious mermaid worthy braids.

Brixton hats - not just for boys.

A good hat can transform an outfit from standard to Sartorialist worthy. 

When Abandon Ship Apparel asked Betty and I to come in and try their new Brixton women's range on you know we jumped at the chance and we didn't stop there, we also tried all the mens hats on too! Luckily there were some small sizes as the tiller is my favourite, so I've progressed from wearing mens shirts to mens hats, maybe I'll start 'borrowing' the other half's varsity jackets al la 90's americana. 

My new obsession is definitely hat shaped.

It's all in the details

I'm a bit of a nester, I love decorating and updating our house and I love accessories! Whilst I may not have the resources (see money) to get everything I want all at the same time the easiest way to update a room is to add fresh flowers. You need to decide on a theme first, do you want a statement or do you want something to fit in yet still stand out? Then you need to decide which room you want to put the bouquet in and what colours would most compliment that room. Our living room is quite rustic with a colour scheme of white and pale grey so I went for the Truffle Bouquet, lilies and roses are one of my favourite flower combinations and when you add in field daisies and hypericum berries you have a stunning flower arrangement. I would also love to add in a brighter bouquet too just to change the room up, as I said the easiest way to update a room is to add fresh flowers! 

Appleyard London provide a luxury bouquet delivery service, you can choose from flower type, colour, occasion and collection. My favourites have to be the wildflower and vintage carnation collections, so beautiful don't you think? You can treat yourself or a loved one with a beautiful bouquet that arrives tied in a big box, luxurious indeed!  





Make sure you check out their site and let me know which bouquet you choose! Use code 'BLOG33' for 33% off of your order*
