Blonde moment.

Hey there!
Today I went shopping in Glasgow. As much as I love Edinburgh, we have a chronic drought of majorly important high street shops, we lack an American Apparell (though the sweet Diesel shop assistant who directed us to said AA informed us that Edinburgh is soon to have our very own one, please don't say she was toying with me!) a Primark and an Urban Outfitters. This is why our West Coast rival is so often named "fashion capital" whilst we are the real capital - complete with annyoing, poorly dressed tourists. Sea was unable to join us, F and I, which was a bummer but I think after next pay day we'll take a fashionsqueah trip there! This was my outfit, incorporating 75p thift find!
Grey tee - H&M, navy top - thrifted, skirt - Oasis, tights - tightsplease, shoes - Debenhams, bangles - vintage via ebay, necklace - H&M, bag - thrifted.
Took my sailor jacket to ward off rain, always advisable in Scotland - even in June!
This is an outfit I wore yesterday for dinner at my Mum's place as it was Lil Bro's birthday, happy 19th bro! I didn't post it before because there was something not...right about it. I was unable to figure out what though. I tried pinning the belt to make it high-waisted and every belt in my collection but it still didn't work. Not an outfit to be repeated then.

Tops - ebay, skirt - boohoo, tights - tightsplease (don't worry, a different pair! I'm not that skanky...) shoes - H&M.

How thick am I that I saw these legwarmers on tightsplease and assumed they were some kind of awesome ski-pant type of thing, a solution to my woe (ski-pants are one-size-fits-all, I have long legs!). They are just normal legwarmers! Argh how am I to style these without looking...odd? I bought grey by the way, not the brown colour pictured.
I'll be posting my purchases from Glasgow soon, right now I just don't have energy and, as always, I must get up early for work!

I really like the first look, very chic. I know what you're saying about the stylish boy thing. I walk a fine line between wanting them to dress well and not wanting a guy who is clearly "into" fashion...
