It's hard to see bloggers on Instagram everyday in seemingly new clothes ALL the time. But the truth is, new product is new content and generally, if I blog about old clothes, readers get annoyed.
However, sometimes, some older classics are often the best and it's so nice to bring them out and re-style them again in a fresh approach. I wore this dress on a work shoot recently and got so many compliments it reignited my love for it. I love wearing it casually with trainers - it feels smart but also relaxed with its long sleeves (see recent post here for my love affair with sleeves). It was the first item I packed for our trip to Edinburgh this past weekend...

My husband booked a trip to Scotland for a surprise (belated) birthday treat to see the Military Tattoo, something I'd always wanted to see. It was magnificent, and we took some time to see a few Fringe plays whilst there as well. Sadly the weather was expectedly Scottish and after this day it rained for the entirety of our trip, so no blogging after this point!
I still love the feel of white sneakers, and Stan Smiths are still highly rated in my opinion (only pipped to the post in comfort by the Gant 'Alice' versions, which sadly I had to throw out as I wore them literally to their death), although my new Vans are also now a firm favourite.
The jacket, bought 2 years ago now, is still in stock at Jigsaw and is the best leather jacket on the High Street. The leather is butter soft and cost per wear is 100% worth it.
