pink sunsets

Lately I've been dreaming of sunlit diners, palm tree lined streets, pastel buildings and ice cold milkshakes. 

I felt like I was getting the rainy day blues last week, but spring has finally sprung! And now I'm wishing for summer parties, ice cream and all the picnics one girl can handle. I've picked my ultimate spring/summer party outfit, I would wear a pink lipstick (Lime Crime's Geradium is perfect) and have my hair down and messy with the headscarf tied like this <3

What would your perfect summer outfit be?

Land of the floating heads...

There is nothing better than going for a wander around Kelvingove museum on a rainy day. Glasgow is full of amazing things to do but this has to be one of my favourites. The building and grounds are breathtaking and what better backdrop for some tartan styling? 

Last week was world tartan day, like anyone needs and excuse though! My Chou Chou hood was my first go to item and luckily I have a pair of topshop trousers that match exactly, teamed with a simple cream shirt and my Docs the focus was kept on the hood and trousers. I love tartan and leather....must be a throwback from my teenage punk years <3

cry me a river

I have a bit of a thing for quilting right now, I would like to have a quitted version of all my favourite clothes/shoes/bags...and yes I do realise that that's a little crazy! The quilted jacket trend was never something I bought into, but boy am I making up for it now!

This adorable twin set is from USC, the top is not cropped (horray!) and the zips are metal so they give it a little bit of a harder edge. The top also zips right off....naughty! I knew right away that the first time I wore this I had to team it with my pink quilted Docs and a printed shirt. I opted for a check shirt because I felt the white could do with a little bit of pattern. My necklace is from the lovely sugar & vice <3

Are you obsessing over anything right now?

Modern Fairytale

I still love fairy tales, although I have always been more drawn to the folklore, which is usually a little darker and well, less "disney". As soon as I saw Naromode's Duck tee adapted from their first collection 'The White Snake' based on The Brothers Grimm story it was love at first sight. 

The tee sits a little longer than waist length so it goes perfectly with high waisted jeans, and will go perfectly with any highwaisted skirt! Have you seen their new scarf collection? I have my eye firmly on the 'Raven' print...I feel a bird print obsession looming.

cat ears and my little pony

It may be spring but it's still not warm enough to wear sandals with out socks....luckily printed socks are everywhere at the moment and I managed to bag a my little pony pair! Before you ask, yes sometimes I base an outfit around an accessory, sometimes you need to get dressed from the toes up!   

This skirt was a dress but I cut the top off as it was lace and a bit horrid, I love how fluid it is in the wind, the chunky polo creates a nice fabric contrast with the organza. A crop was a little optimistic for outdoors but worked for the office as it's pretty toasty in there.
