Arthur’s Seat Lit Up Yellow

*This post contains gifted items of clothing, both the coat and the jumper were gifted by Peregrine UK. Peregrine is a brand that I reached out to, to work with because they are Made in Britain, and use sustainable practices. They produce a really high degree of quality in their clothing!
I have been up Arthur’s Seat only once in my life. Situated at the tipy top of Holyrood Park in Edinburgh, it’s quite a little hike to get up, and, to be honest, I usually can’t be bothered. I go up Calton Hill every other week, and I regularly explore the other seven hills of Edinburgh, but I’ve only gone up Arthur’s Seat once. Today was not that day. Today we went up just high enough that we got a decent view, but more importantly, we got to get up close and personal with all the yellow gorse flourishing in Holyrood Park.

OOTD | Dressing for Winter

I’m a big fan of dresses. I know they’re not for everyone, but to me they’re such an easy way to be comfortable and chic, it’s too good to pass up. Of course, part of the comfort question is the style of dress. For a loooooong time I stuck strictly to bodycon and skater dresses because I felt like anything that didn’t hug my waist made me look ginormous. Thankfully, after spending years avoiding dresses that I found gorgeous just because they weren’t form fitting, I have embraced it. Even better: shift dresses are the comfiest and I regret having missed out on them for so long.

Must Have Summer Beauty Products

Summer time is my FAVOURITE time, and I’m only a lliiiittle biased as a summer baby. I love hot summer days that just give off life and energy and put everyone in a good mood, I love spending my days outside and feeling the warm breeze and I love the smell of sunscreen and grass and I love seeing people out and about everywhere I go. No matter what you’re up to, there are people around doing people things and I LOVE IT! (Maybe) my favourite part of summer is the easy breezy makeup. The summer sun adds a little colour and glow to your face, and you start whipping out SPF tinted moisturizers and all the lowkey makeup products that create a classic, effortless, beachy beauty look. Here are my go-to summer products!…

Statement Sleeves

I was recently watching British Vogue’s fashion documentary on Youtube when Alexa Chung (who’s the host of the documentary) was asked what she thought the next big trend was – statement sleeves. The documentary was published a year ago, I’m SHOOK! Leave it to Alexa to call it big time. I need to stop talking about her so much on my blog, I’m sorry pals. Let’s talk about statement sleeves instead, no doubt you’ve noticed this trend coming on, here’s how you can pull it off!

Wear Your Mottos

gt12

It’s no secret that graphic ‘motto’ tees have become très populaire. Motto themed graphic tees are popping up everywhere, from high fashion runways, to Candice Pool Neistat’s new Billy! brand, to Forever 21’s horrible attempts at being #relatable (see here). Graphic motto tees have evolved from what they once were, (the cheasy, punny, embarrassing tops that I used to wear), and are now becoming more politically motivated, personally motivated, or (in the case of Forever 21), financially motivated. Regardless of what section they fit under, everyone’s making them, and pretty much everyone’s wearing them….

Monochrome, Monochrome, Monochrome

Let me say it one more time: MONOCHROME! Monochrome – also known as all and only black and white – is a huuuuge trend in fashion for Spring. Dior (Ready to wear) and Calvin Klein (menswear) both had almost entirely monochromed runways. And now I can’t type monochrome without giggling, it’s all too much!

There are two great things about an all black and white trend – you probably already have everything you need in your closet and it’s versatile enough that you can still put your own style and spin on things. Here are three monochromed looks that I put together that I think both express different aspects of my own style, and look on trend….
