Mermaids and Metallics

Mermaid-Dress7

Metallics are just one of those trends I absolutely adore. From shiny silver ankle boots to shimmering sequin skirts, I love rocking something super reflective and eye catching on a night out. While shopping at The Centre Livingston last month, I immediately fell for this unique mermaid mini dress on the Topshop sale rail, and decided to go matchy-matchy and pair it with my metallic cross body bag from Covet Edinburgh.

The Dundee Fashion Guide

Last week I went to Dundee for the first time ever (bar stopping off via the train to Aberdeen when I went to uni there), and it was unexpectedly fashion-filled and fun. I’d heard some amazing things about the small Scottish city, with its newly developing modern waterfront, highly exteemed art schools and a host of talented fahsion brands and manufacturing, so I thought I’d take a day trip and compile a fashionistas guide to Dundee.

The Shore is probably on of my favourite places in Edinburgh. Beautiful modern buildings and amazing pubs and restaurants overlook the Water of Leith and the whole place looks like a mini Amsterdam. I had a great time shooting this outfit with Lyndsey from Edinburgh lifestyle blog The Quiet Resolution This was probably the first time in 2017 I’ve worn a dress without tights because Scotland is cold as hell. Looking at my pale legs you can also see why I usually choose to cover up in black! Scroll to the bottom to shop the look, which features Mandi Candi Boutique and Stella & Dot. I hope you enjoy!
