Shades of Grey OOTD

Hello all!

A quick outfit post: a comfortable Sunday outfit consisting of all shades of grey, well charcoal to be precise.  I said I would show you this jumper as part of an outfit a while back, when I bought it in November!  It is from COS and was bought on a shopping trip in Glasgow which I wrote about here.  Although I bought it back in November it didn’t go in to the Winter sale – so the good news is it is still available!  The bad news is, it must be sold out online but I recently saw it in a few COS stores in London.  So here it is on.  Its a lovely soft knitted jumper with a cute flare and zip up the back.  It looks great with jeans or a pencil skirt.  I also think it would look great with a white shirt underneath!

I spoke about these jeans in a recent post.  A great find from M&S and they are so comfy!  Anyway I won’t go on about them, if you do not know the full extent of my M&S jean appreciation then check out this post.  The boots are an old favourite from All Saints last year so they aren’t available anymore!  You can find a similar style here which I love!

Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing Sunday!

Accessories, Accessories and More Accessories

Hope you have all had a good weekend!

An eclectic selection of accessories is just what you need to make a lovely outfit – amazing. Here is just a selection of my ultimate accessories right now, my collection is forever growing and showing no sign of slowing down!

With the winter in full force here in the North East of Scotland, hats and snoods are a must! Cos had a great selection of both and I was lucky enough to get the orange snood and hat for my Christmas and the lemon hat was a sale treat to myself. The orange is such a great colour for brightening up any plain outfit, I do tend to wear a black hat with the snood and vice versa with the hat, as it looks all a bit much. They were in the Cos sale but sold out pretty quickly unfortunately. However the lemon ribbed hat is currently in the sale for just £13, it is a wool and cashmere mix so it doesn’t get itchy – get it here before its gone!

So now on to my favourite accessories… jewellery! I just can’t get enough of it, I have run out of fingers (and toes) to display all my rings on, my many hooks are forever being strained from the weight of all my necklaces. As I have so many pieces I thought I would share with you my everyday pieces I have been wearing over the past few months.

On the first of this year I had a lovely email from MOXHAM with 50% off for all subscribers… “Yes” I thought as I knew exactly what I was going to buy as I have been lusting after the OTTO silver cuff for quite a while. I haven’t really had it off since I got it, even considering its chunky size, it is comfortable to wear for everyday and definitely a statement piece. The woman behind MOXHAM Madeleine Moxham, aims to “offer oversized statement pieces that create the focal point for a contemporary look” and she really does just that.

 The necklace was was a sale item from a concept store here in Aberdeen called Peltoniemi. It’s  a really delicate chain that is great for wearing everyday, and has a little sparkle to it.

The perfume is from the same store – Olfactive Studio Lumière Blanche is “a mild and enveloping perfume, Lumière Blanche is a comforting cocoon, between milky mildness and cold spices” it really is  lovely.” All the scents from Olfactive Studio are really nice have a look at their website here.

Last but not least the ring is from the Danish silversmith Georg Jensen, it is solid sterling silver ring which I am loving wearing with all my other silver jewellery and new watch!

What are your favourite accessorises just now? We would love to hear from you!

Hope you have a good week!

Glasgow Shopping – COS, Zara, MAC, Benefit and the lovely West End.

Hello lovely readers!

It is Fi here.  I want to tell you about my recent trip to Glasgow for some shopping, eating and drinking (what we do best here at The Blonde Edit).  I love Glasgow at Christmas time.  It always has a great atmosphere with the sparkling Christmas lights and the happy and friendly shop assistants who make Christmas shopping painless.  My plan for Glasgow was to get all my Christmas shopping done, but in true Blonde Edit style I only came home with new purchases for myself!  We had a whole day shopping which was largely spent wandering about House of Fraser.  I feel like a big kid when I walk in there and see these beautiful, sparkling lights…

I also love Princes Square at christmas.  It is a little quieter than other shops and shopping centres so you can relax and browse the lovely shops and have a bite to eat.  Plus my favourite shop is there – COS – where lots of time was spent.  I could have done some serious damage in there but unfortunately had to remember that Christmas is about giving gifts to other people (not just myself).  But I did buy a jumper which I have hardly taken off since!

I seem to have a bit of an obsession with grey knitwear at the moment. This is charcoal though so maybe that doesn’t count?  This jumper has a ribbed knit pattern and is flared at the bottom – I love it!

I also bought the necklace in Glasgow.  We spent the afternoon shopping in the West End of Glasgow.  If you haven’t already been there it’s a must! There are great little shops with unusual gifts and a great selection of vintage shops.  There are also loads of bars and restaurants.  My favourite restaurant is there – The Hanoi Bike Shop, a vietnamese canteen.  The food is amazing and they also do yummy cocktails.  This was my main reason for venturing to the West End but it was closed!!!!  So after stomping my feet and being close to tears I went for some retail therapy instead.  I found this amazing necklace in Nancy Smillie.  This shop is an Aladdin’s cave of jewellery, crafts, gifts and homeware.   I was extremely happy with my purchases of the day.

After a full day of shopping my feet were aching! So it was back to the hotel for a rest before dinner.  For Dinner we went to The Grill on the Corner.  I have been here a couple of times and will always go back.  The food is amazing, the atmosphere is lively and the selection of cocktails is great.  Now… I don’t want to make you jealous but here is the yummy meal I had – take me back ASAP!
