Star Print in Victoria Street | Edinburgh

Victoria street is one of the places in Edinburgh we kept going back to. There are thousands of streets but this one was a little more magical and vibrant and had so many things to see. Apparently it’s the street that inspired Diagon Alley. How flipping cool, we also went to The Elephant House cafe where J K Rowling started to write Harry Potter. We didn’t pick Edinburgh for it’s connection to Harry Potter but loved seeing all the inspirations.Maison Bleue  at night.

We stopped into Maison Bleue in the evening for mulled wine and a mince pie.

 We stopped into The Red Door Gallery and picked some prints to hang when we move in together. I really loved that shop, there were so many prints that I wanted. We chose from Mr Peebles and And Smile and a little Edinburgh postcard to go with our Cornwall one.

At the bottom of Victoria Street you’ll find Hula. A perfectly decorated cafe with a huge healthy menu with lost of GF, vegan and veggie options. We never went past when we were in need of food but went in for a smoothie and a cold brew.

The Chia Fields smoothie for me and a cold brew for him.

Winter Party Nights

I wore this to my mums Christmas party, she hosts one every year and it’s always a hoot.

I loved wearing kimonos during the summer but thought they would be silly in winter. How wrong was I, they are the perfect party dress coverup. I’ve been listening to Fleetwood Mac  non-stop, which inspired the accessorise. Also I’ve found that I hate wearing tights, they are so uncomfortable.

Winter Style

I thought there would be a transition between summer and Autumn, turns out one day it’s glorious sunshine the next its torrential rain. Typical British weather! Though it does mean that I can start to work in my winter wardrobe.

I’ve never worn a turtle neck before, I always thought that I had to much in that chest area for it good. But this baggy drop sleeved one is perfect. paired with high waisted black skinnies it’s a perfect casual outfit. Of course I had to wear my Topshop orange flats!!

Blue and Metal

By now you lovely readers should know that I love shoes, like really love them. If I see a pair of shoes that I love I have to have them. This is what happened the other day. My mum showed me there beauties and I fell in love ( I totally blame her ) 😉

Nude, metal, block heel, t bar, buckle, everything is perfect about this shoe. Oh and did I mention they are super comfortable, I could easily do a marathon shopping session in these. DSCN0390 DSCN0395These shoes have to be worn with one of my favourite colours, blue. The metal is totally off set and beautiful against my navy jacquard skirt. Of course I couldn’t wear head to toe blue everyday ( even though I love to try) This Zara top is so light and the oversized sleeves are perfect for when the sun finally comes out. DSCN0401 DSCN0402 DSCN0406Trying so hard to be Parisian, I can dream.

this hexagonal necklace is so perfect, delicate and masculine at the same time, I do love a contrast. DSCN0413 DSCN0416 DSCN0417I wore

The Hunter

To say I’m a shoe addict would be an understatement, I bought a new pair of shoes today even. But I want to talk to you about these shoes.DSCN0327I love these Hunter sandals, the jell of the shoe moulds to you feet and sticks like glue, which makes them the easiest to walk in. Also the colour!! I love, love, love fuchsia, a huge pop of colour to my outfit. I really wanted to make my shoes the focus point of this look.
