For AW-18/19 Vogue said silk dresses are in. Or if you want something more wearable a silk scarf around your neck or in your hair is a perfect nod to the trend. Or really dive deep into the trend and find yourself a silk dress, much like the slip dress trend but for this season it’s about pattern and vibrancy for Autumn.

Thank god I rarely throw anything away. As I have kept most of the silk scarves that I’ve picked up here and there. From vintage kilo sales to thrift shopping you can really find amazing vintage silk if you know where to look.

A silk scarf dress that I bought for my senior prom (6 years ago) and just kept because it’s so unique. Of course, it’s a summer piece so pair with a turtleneck and tights or a jacket and jeans. You could just go bare legged and a huge jumper, it’s really up to you. Miss matched layering is another trend for AW-18/19 so go wild. If you are a DIY wiz get creative and cut a silk scarf diagonally in half and sew the cut triangle ends together to create a silk scarf top and a little ribbon if you chose otherwise tie together.

I was infatuated with the X by Trollbeads bird skull when it first came out but never managed to get around to buying one. I completely forgot about my love for it until I want to Weymouth the other day. In the Fossil Beach shop ( the precious beads and souvenirs shop), they had loads of necklaces and I saw a little bird skull hanging from a leather thong and it all came back to me. How goth it looked and how unusually it would be to wear. This one is much smaller then the X one, which I prefer. I picked it up right away and have been wearing it ever since. Also adds to the slight punk aesthetic I seem to have found myself with. My silver septum ring bleached hair and now my bird skull.
A chance encounter with a Harris Hawk at the beach was so serendipitous that we couldn’t not have photos together.

Being able to run around a new city with someone you love is such a unique thing. Wanting to explore a new place with your love, is hilarious and exhausting and you really can’t wait to explore the next new place.
While we were in Edinburgh we drank Iron Bur till we were orange in the face, explored the Christmas market, woke up before sunrise to watch the sun come up over Arthur’s Seat from the Nelson Monument, went to cool bars, drank many cocktails and ate so much food.

Looking back at all the photos from this trip it really looks like I only wore black, white or red for four days. oops!
