Sunny Days In Circus Lane, One of Edinburgh’s “Hidden Gems”

Sunny skies are a rare occasion in Edinburgh, and usually if they’re there, you don’t know they’re coming. It’s really unusual for me to be able to dress for good weather, but every once in awhile a few days of sun come along and I try my best to make the most of it! Otherwise I’ll have a wardrobe full of skirts, shorts, and dresses that never get worn. Luckily, I was staying on top of the weather last week and an opportunity to go to Circus Lane (in Edinburgh) and wear one of my favourite dresses on a day out with my friend arose!

Mixing Prints and Patterns

Mixing prints is not something I usually do, and mixing tartan on tartan is definitely something I never thought I’d do. But when I left my house yesterday it was chucking it down and I grabbed my umbrella and off I went. It wasn’t until I was updating my Instagram (@arcticsabrina) stories that I realised I was mixing two different colours of tartan. I usually wouldn’t even wear more than one piece of tartan, and ever since moving to Edinburgh I generally avoid it at all costs. I brought my kilt home at christmas and left it there, and these trousers have been at the back of my wardrobe collecting dust. It just feels like a bit much when I wear tartan now, like a bit of an overkill. But yesterday I think I achieved the peak of ‘didn’t you know I live in Scotland now?‘ with my accidental tartan mix-up….

Woolly Sweaters By the Seaside

I think it’s about time I feature a lil outfit post! My wardrobe and style is VERY dependent on the season, and in the summertime I’m very floaty and fresh with my wardrobe. I don’t like anything too flashy, or too high maintenance. I’ll wear the same pair of jean shorts and plain t shirts with Birkenstocks day in and day out. As the weather gets colder, I always somehow find the inspiration to put a lil extra something into my wardrobe. I suddenly want to take the time to do my hair and makeup, and wear skirts with tights and cozy sweaters and turtlenecks. This year, I moved right at the beginning of September, which meant I had to pack up my entire Autumn/Winter wardrobe, and now I’m working through that summer to fall transition on a very minimal wardrobe.

OOTD | Growing Flowers in Winter

t1
love light colours, flowy fabrics and embroidery. I also live in a city that sees below 0 temperatures at least 5 months of the year. Luckily, I’ve found a way to make my peace between those two things. Here’s my little guide on how to let a little feminine, summer aesthetic live in your winter wardrobe, or as I so cleverly put it (modest, I know), how to grow some flowers in your winter wardrobe.
