Pastels





Cardigan c/o | Top | Jeans | Bag (similar here) | Shoes (similar here)

Morning everyone, well it has been another horrendous weekend here in Scotland on the weather front anyway. Rain, rain, horrific wind and more rain! I managed to get in these outfit shots in a brief five minutes of recess from what felt like a monsoon. 

SS15 brings us lots of pretty pastel colours and what better way to brighten up your wardrobe for Spring/Summer, right?! 

What do you guys think of my slouchy pastel-lilac cardigan?  It sure did keep me warm this weekend whilst braving the rain and wind. Its the perfect length to wear with jeans for a shopping trip or out for food ... and it kept me very cosy. I love the colour. I think it would also look great as a cover-up for a dress or playsuit.

Neo







Adidas has officially launched their new Spring/Summer 15 Neo range that has been designed by superstar, Selena Gomez.

The new City Life collection from adidas NEO Label and Selena Gomez is heavily inspired by the glam sportswear look, fusing contemporary sportswear with city attitude.

Selena Gomez, global style icon for the adidas NEO Label, has further developed her role as a NEO guest designer by taking inspiration from the city and implementing it in her new Spring Summer collection.

The glam sportswear look has been a centrepiece on the runway in many fashion circles and NEO & Selena have interpreted the trend in their unique way, mixing up street looks with sports silhouettes. The collection mixes gym staples such as hoodies, track pants and bomber jackets, with unexpected materials like structured fleece, mesh, drapey single jerseys and denim, completing the perfect Glam sportswear look.

A key detail this season is the blurred flower print, bridging the street and sporty looks with a feminine twist. The ultimate spring look will be found in the blurred flower print tracksuit that gives anyone a spring in their step. Furthering the collection are the key colours of black & white with yellow and pink pops to really bring out the details of the collection.

Selena commented: "I am very happy with my new adidas NEO Label collection. The color pops and blurred flower graphics are a great spring look. The collection bridges sportswear and street wear, but still manages to incorporate modern silhouettes like the cropped hoodie or higher waisted denim. The pieces in this collection are absolute seasonal must-haves." 

You can put the finishing touches on your look with the Selena Gomez footwear collection, which conveys a fusion of contemporary street wear & city attitude, taking inspiration from classical basketball silhouettes with discreet pops of neon colour as well as the ultimate street running silhouette with exquisite floral graphics, providing a truly sophisticated look for the street.

In Spring/Summer the Selena Gomez accessories play with perforation and material combinations, bringing into action crocodile look PU and a combination of mesh and blurred flower graphics. The lining on the bags this season bring in a pop of colour making sure that they stand out in a crowd.

Below are my favourite pieces from the new collection:

Styled Up Link-Up







Blazer (Zara)  | Top (Zara)  | Printed Pants  (c/o) | Heels | Bag (LYDC)

Today's weather was absolutely horrendous. It has rained non-stop from this morning and that is set to change to snow as of later tonight. Taking outfit photos against gorgeous sunny backdrops isn't always so easy, here in Scotland, but if you are looking for a gloomy rainy vibe, it sure won't leave you disappointed!! 

One of my favourite types of trousers are the printed baggy kind. These beauties from Blue Vanilla are the latest piece to add to my collection of prints. I love the damask print and their shape. They are super comfy to wear with an elasticated waist band. I've styled them with a little blazer and some nude pumps. I could wear this outfit on a date night or even to a restaurant with friends. 

Oh .... No doubt you all will have noticed, I changed my hair colour and length last week .. back to my roots, that blonde was too hard to keep up with :)

This week's "Styled Up" co-host is the gorgeous Adriele from StyleAssisted. I first met Adriele through my link-up and have had the pleasure of a lovely blogger friendship, ever since. She has to have the best hair in the blogosphere, I absolutely love the colour of her locks and just wait until you meet her gorgeous little bubba, Alexander! 




Adriele is a style (and recently beauty) blogger from the midwest in America. She is obsessed with shoes (aren't we all), and her new baby boy. She loves leather pants, a good pair of heels and great coats. She blogs every m-w-f and has a section devoted to men's style named "Guy Friday." She has styled people and photoshoots professionally, but now does the blog as a hobby in her (limited) free time- as she is a political consultant in the real world. She thinks every woman needs a good pair of jeans and some fabulous lipstick.

To learn more about Adriele, visit her here.

Cosy Plaid









Sunglasses | Cardigan (Primark) similar here | Jeans 

Bag (old) similar here | Shoes (Primark) similar here


Gosh, it was chilly today in Glasgow. That cold front is not letting up as we approach March.


I got this oversized cardigan from Primark for under £20 and wore it today to keep warm. The plaid pattern, and the fact it looked so big and cosy, attracted me to it. I was right in how cosy it is, it was perfect for keeping me warm and all wrapped up. Not only did I get the cardigan, I also got the pink quilted hi-top trainers ... for £5!!! Primark is always great for lovely finds at a gentle price. 


Where are your favourite places to shop for a bargain?
