Unless you were hiding away in bed over Easter, you will know that the sun finally made an appearance. After months of rubbish cold, rainy, windy weather, we finally got a glimpse of summer. I was actually working all weekend but luckily the Monday was still really lovely. These chances don't happen often in Scotland so you really have to make the most of it.
I think it's fairly obvious by now that I am a fan of wearing dark colours which is perfect for when the weather isn't playing nice. I get caught off guard when the sun comes out. You can't really get away with wearing all black then can you?
Belt: River Island
Necklace: Claire Barclay Draws
I got this dress from Primark last summer and I really don't wear it as much as I should. Personally, I think it's the perfect summer dress. Sweetheart neckline, pastel blue, plaid and a full skirt. Just be careful if it's windy. I had a few Marilyn Monroe moments, though I didn't look as classy as her.
Being a girl who is slightly on the curvier side, I do love a 50's style dress. Anything that nips me in the waist is always a winner for me.
About a month ago the wonderful Claire Barclay had an Instagram competetion to win one of her amazing name necklaces. I was over the moon when I got the notification to say I was a winner. This was the first chance I have had to wear it. The rest of my outfit had a slight cartoony feel, so it fitted in perfectly.
It actually felt nice to wear something colourful for once. Don't get me wrong, I love my normal monochrome style but I am feeling like it's time to invest in some bright clothes for summer. Let's just hope the sun makes another appearance soon. All I want to do is sit in the meadows and have a few drinks with some good friends!
Did you get a chance to enjoy the weather this weekend?
Till the next time!
