24 April 2015

These were taken yesterday when my flat mate and I spent an entire day in the wonderful Glasgow sunshine.

Lunch in Peña, reading and people watching in Kelvingrove Park, a trip up to Byres Road late afternoon and a Waitrose picnic dinner in the Botanical Gardens before popping into our friends for a cup of tea. I had such a productive morning too, so it was a good day.

I'm in love with my outfit, and more specifically these jeans. They're the perfect mom jeans for me in terms of colour, style and not making me feel huge while I'm wearing them - far better than anything else I've seen or tried on. My only wish for this outfit (which you can bet will be repeated!) is that I could have worn my Saltwater sandals, but alas, my toenails weren't painted. You win some, you lose some.

Outfit details: collarless shirt - vintage, mom jeans - H&M, shoes - Dr Martens, canvas tote - Alphabet Bags.

(Picture is by my best gal pal, photographer Alishia Farnan. This is an image from her project Leafy Dreams, and it makes me the happiest. I have it framed, too. Instagram link here.)

  • The new The Xcerts album: currently streaming on The Independent alongside an interview with the band. I've been waiting 4 years for this album!
  • Nars Cruella lip pencil.
  • Dry shampoo - my current pick is Lush's No Drought.. and a lot was used this morning. 9am Monday morning lectures are not the one.
  • Several cups of chai tea.
  • The heating being on.. it's pretty chilly today.

I had planned on putting together another post last week, but it was a bit of a strange one and circumstances left me not wanting to/having nothing to post about.

What have been your Monday Essentials this week? Let me know in the comments! And don't forget to check out Alishia's work!

Pretty (but comfy) underwear.
A cosy knit jumper or cardigan.
A good workspace. (Isn't my new desk just delightful? Still working on making it super "me".)
A plan for the week ahead.

And this song; because how could you not want to dance around like a crazy person when you hear it? Just me?

This post is based on this tweet I made last week. But maybe they will become a regular thing? Monday's are hard to get through after all.

What are your Monday Essentials? I'd love to know in the comments or on Twitter!

autumn vibes

This afternoon Callum came up to Glasgow and we took a little walk up to the Glasgow Necropolis, first stopping in by Tinderbox for a warm drink to keep us cosy. Mainly because I haven't yet bought gloves this year and needed something to keep my hands warm. I've never been to the Necropolis before and it was really interesting to see all the graves of people who died mostly over 100 years ago. It's so peaceful too, which is a nice escape when you live in the middle of a massive city.

Autumn is my favourite time of year. Everything feels so clean, crisp and new, a bit like a fresh start. I'm just trying to enjoy it as much as possible before it ends and we're in the depths of winter.

Im also selling my Dr Marten 1460 boots over on Depop (here). Selling them to fund a new pair as my feet just hate these for some reason. If you, or someone you know, is after a pair please take a look.. I'm asking £50.

Forever 21 trousers and coatigan, vintage jumper, Dr Martens 1461 pw shoes
Urban Oufitters scarf, American Apparel hat, Next bag, Tiffany & Co. necklace.
