For the third and final installment of my street style series that aims to showcase some of my favourite Scottish fashion brands. Featuring photography by the lovely Kirsty McLachlan, in today’s ‘lookbook’ I’m wearing the most verstaile t-shirt dress- and a serious staple in my Autumn/Winter wardrobe, by Glasgow based ethical fashion designer Rachel McMillan.

This is one of my favourite looks in the series, because this is one of those dresses that I can wear for almost any occassion. It is made from 46% Bamboo, 46% Organic Cotton, 8% Elastane, so it feels extremely soft and comfortable, with a good ampunt of stretch so you can still move about despite its fitted, almost bodycon shape. Also, it’s length is ideal for me, standing at 5″11, as I have a particular penchant for oversized and super long clothes. I’ve styled it here with heeled sock boots. The highlight however is the stunning embroidery detail,  a metallic Rachel McMillan logo emblazoned in the centre for all to see; I absolutely love it.
