Happy Friday and Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!
I’m feeling so summery with my new floral shirt dress that I decided to wear as a kimono over some white skinnies and stripes! Then I realised I haven’t worn my hat for a while and that this look needed a nice big statement necklace and pop of spring / Easter colour with my clutch, which brings out those cute lilac flowers on the dress a bit more I think… There was no question about the shoes – my new girly nude pointy toe heels complete my “boho-casual-spring-traveller” look!

It’s Easter Holidays for kids and that means they are off school for 2 weeks (lucky bunch), but what that also means for us is a lot of imagination for things to do when it’s raining outside and a lot of pressure to spend every minute of the day outside if it’s sunny! Although the latter would probably apply to the entire Scottish population… And so we were blessed with some real sunny (uninterrupted by rain) day on Monday so we hit the road for the west coast of Scotland, because that’s what people do here when it’s hot – go the beach, wear shorts and sandals and some even take their tops off! But that’s a different story about Glasgow!
And here we go – in to the wild with our sandals and sun hats on, backpacks and cameras, snacks and sunnies packed in to the car playing “I spy with my little eye” for over 2 hours and loving every minute of it. What’s funny is that we got ready to leave on our little Sunny April adventure in 10 minutes (so that we don’t miss the Sun) – no kidding, lippy was put on en route! My pastel pink “sliders” I’ve been desperate to wear for ages now, but this hand-printed t-shirt was sitting on top of my drawers as a new addition to my wardrobe and to be honest was a perfect choice for our outing as it kinda goes with our wild theme! I love how things come together sometimes perfectly – I needed a new good quality white tee with a quirky print – and along come the amazing new brand Abetwix, who hand-print their unisex tee’s and jumpers so I was lucky enough to have one of their best designs, and besides, who doesn’t love a day in a new great quality white tee and jeans? What’s more – I needed a canvas bag for our trip and guess what? Abetwix sent me a hand-printed bag with my t-shirt delivery… What a lucky girl am I?
You’ll be seeing this t-shirt in more future posts here, but in the meantime , go check out Abetwix on ASOS Marketplace and follow the guys on Instagram to discover more about their cool brand and designs…

Hope everyone had a great weekend – mine was full of treats and fun as usual, but with my girl being off school for 2 weeks, it’s weekend every day for us just now! Lots of meals out, outdoor climbing and family meets, which is always great and here’s one of the outfits I wore for our family breakfast in one of my favourite Glasgow cafes – Epicures… Yum!
I mentioned somewhere on Instagram that I can never have too many pairs of jeans and here’s my new favourite pair – stretchy, high-waisted and with ripped knees and 34″ long, which is ideal for my height m but I rolled them up here with this outfit! Talking of too many pairs of jeans – I think I have another new pair somewhere in a zara bag still unworn! Shhh…. it’s a secret – don’t tell the boyfriend!
Feeling very summery here with my toes peeping, crop striped shirt under a pastel blazer with rolled up sleeves and of course sunnies… Hoping that Sunshine will hang around for longer this week though and hope everyone has a good one!

Workwear? Mmmmmaybe not! And definitely not gym wear – I think I’ll call it “Sports Tux”!
These loose fit sweat pants with the white stripe remind me of tuxedo trousers, so when worn with a smart blazer, it kind of comes together – obviously sporty and for £5 in H&M sale, elegance and class are right out of the window there, but that is not what I’m aiming for here anyway…
I go to the gym all the time and love my comfy gym gear, but I also love my heels and blazers, which sometimes can make the look too smart if you know what I mean?
Lets do this: take away the shoes and the blazer – I’m left with literally a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt (PS I don’t wake up like this – I wish!). So you know I work from home and have a daughter to pick up from school or sometimes I work in one of Glasgow’s cafes for a couple of hours, basically I’m out and about a lot, so comfy bottoms and a tee are ideal for working from home. Actually – I could have woken up like this!!!
Right, add she shoes back on to the outfit with the blazer, a clutch or a crossbody bag and there you go – my very own Sports Tux which might turn a few confused heads, but you know what, it works, it’s comfy, so easy to assemble and I bet all the office workers secretly wish they could wear sweatpants with their suit jackets too!
Have a great weekend and check in with me on the Social Media, where I’ll share some more of the detail from this outfit! x
