All the 90's vibes with this dress!
A couple of weeks ago we headed through to Edinburgh for the day. I was taking advantage of (what I thought was) the last of the summer sun.
I got this cute dress before we headed to Berlin, it gives me all kinds of 90's feels. I love the floral print and the soft pink shade of the dress. The fabric is very light and summery. In Scotland, light flowing fabric isn't always a good thing, I live in a very windy country! I put a slip on underneath this, both to keep me a bit warmer and also so my undies weren't on show to everyone when my dress blew up in a gust of wind.
We had a day of Festival fun planned, so I wanted to wear shoes I could walk about in. Converse are always my go to for comfort and I love the way they look teamed with a dress, it gives an cute girly outfit a bit of a grungy edge. I almost didn't go for the all white cons, I'm a fan of the classics (white, red and blue), but I'm glad I went for these as they go with so much more.
Our day started off with a trip to Festival Village: Waverley where we filled our faces with some very yummy food (you can read about our visit here). I took the opportunity of the nice weather to pop into Princes Street Gardens and get some photos. I often feel quite ashamed of how little I've done and seen in my own country! Climbing Scott Monument is yet another thing I've still got to do. Maybe I need to add this to my list!
During the summer a denim jacket is my go to. Unfortunately I don't live in a country that really gets much of a summer and in Scotland you really need to be prepared for all weather. Saying we can get four seasons in one day is no exaggeration! Yesterday it was sunny, rainy and there was hail... A denim jacket needs to have some pins on it, I love collecting them and adding them on. This super cute avocado was bought recently from Pie in the Sky, I love it, almost as much as I love actual avocados!
I am currently ALL about a backpack! I'm really glad they're in fashion right now because the old lady in me loves how practical and comfy they are if you're on a day out. I picked this one up in TKMaxx recently and it's hardly been off my back since. It's funny to think at one point when I was a teenager at high school I was so desperate to be "grown up" and ditch the backpack (I had a Warehouse messenger bag, who else remembers them?!) and now I love them!
