If You’re Gonna Be a Square

My nails are so short, I don’t know what happened to them since my holiday. I think it’s probably because I’ve been lazy and not had them painted.

I felt they weren’t long enough for a fancy design so stuck to this little geometric one. I’m surprised how easy it was, I didn’t even need my little brushes.

Oh Jordan

Esco-williams-oh-Jordan

I came across Esco Williams via BBC Introducing, just as the name suggests it introduces you to lots of unsigned artists. I heard this track on Greg James show but ive since found this amazing live version from Reading a Festival this year.

Esco is from Liverpool, he may be young but he is already a dynamic artist. He has the sound of old Skool r’n’b artists like Marvin Gaye but in a fresh and exciting way. The few tracks I’ve heard are pretty varied, Oh Jordan is smooth and enchanting, while New Challenger is funky and screams Friday night.

His EP Breaking Bones is out at end of October but there plenty tracks in the likes of Spotify and Soundcloud to keep you going meantime.

I Clicked My Heels Together Three Times

I was going to go for a chic all black outfit in the style of one of my favourite bloggers Faiiint. I just couldn’t resist a flash of colour though, and what better way than with bright red heels, Dorothy would be proud.

I’m am absolutely in love with these trousers. I’ve been lusting after some leather ones forever, there’s been a pair saved on ASOS since last October. These waxed jeans are the perfect alternative, with a bit of stretch I bet they’re far comfier too. Oh and the best bit, only £26.99! Bargain.

Hope your all having a lovely Sunday, I’m not sure me and Seb will move off the sofa.

No We’re Not Going Home Tonight

Lace-gold-barcelona-fountain

Last night in Barcelona, of course a night on the town was in order. We didn’t fly out till 2pm so there was no stress about an early morning flight. After the fanciest tapas I’ve ever seen, we settled in a cool little bar a gorged on cocktails. La Ribera became my favourite area in the city with all the cool little bars it’s filled with.

This outfit is an oldie but a goodie. I actually wore this in Turkey last year, the man refused to take photos though. The new addition is this amazing vintage clutch. I spied this on my favourite online store Vintage Magpies, just before my holiday. The wonderful Sarah-Jane posted it right away so it arrived in time to come to Barcelona.

I can’t believe I’m coming to the end of my Barcelona posts, time to book the next holiday I think. At least it’s the weekend, and a long bank holiday one at that for me.

You Dress, You Walk, You Talk

stripe-dress-sweater-glasgow-streetstyle

My bloglovin feed has been inundated with street style shots from New York and London Fashion Weeks. The Warner temperature afforded this August seem to has given rise to a little trend of jumpers over skirts.

Obviously I jumped on this instantly as the perfect way to transition my wardrobe into autumn. This dress is a favourite of mine largely due to its length, when you’re over 5ft 10 it can be tough to get a maxi that actually covers your ankles! The added benefit of stripes simply seals the deal.

The colour also matches my favouriet statement ring, this real orchidone I picked up in Oz. All this sunshine means I’m still getting to rock my favourite new accessory, though I think I’ll still be wearing these Chanel babies in December!

Barcelona- I’m Sure Giraffe’s on the Fly do it

Barcelona-MNAC-giraffe-lavish-Alice

On our last day in Barcelona we explored Montjuic, the hill which our hotel was on. It’s home to the Olympic Park from 1992 and the MNAC, modern art gallery and Montjuic park. The leafy surroundings are beautiful and a refreshing change to the hot and busy city.

I knew I had to have this little Lavish Alice dress the moment I saw it. The giraffe print is just fab. Unfortunately my budget got in the way and it was in the sale before I got a chance. I know what you’re thinking, that’s not a bad thing, well it is when they no longer have your size. I had to have it though so went for one two sizes to big and nipped it in at the waist with a belt, I think it works?

Our last day was perhaps the sunniest of the holiday, Sod’s law eh? It meant I got to try out my wonderful new sunnies though, still overjoyed by this little gift.

You’re like an Indian Summer

Mango-dress-bythswood-square-pink

The temperatures have dipped a little bit and bare legs are becoming decreasingly an option, but the sun is still shining in Glasgow. It’s looking more and more like an Indian summer. Flowers are still in full bloom and they even match my outfit.

This dress is one I’ve had for a few months. It instantly puts a smile on my face when I put it on as it was a bit too tight when I first bought it, all that 30 day shred seems to have paid off. The tights were the perfect combo. The bright colour fits the sunny skies and the flashes of pink set off the metallic details on the hem of the dress.

I know everyone is desperate for autumn to set in to show off all their new season favourites, but can we hold onto the sunshine for a little longer.
