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!

Daniel Wellington and Triwa Watch

  Hello all!

The Blonde Edit have been spoilt this Christmas and we both received lovely new watches which we want to show you.  Ollie got a Daniel Wellington watch and Fi got a Triwa watch.  We love both these brands for their quality and originality, and the simple but stylish designs.  The brands are a little bit different from other watch brands which you normally find on the high street.  Our particular watches are great for any occasion or outfit.

Daniel Wellington is a British brand which makes high quality watches of a classic style.  Check out the website here – it has lovely imagery and stories.  Ollie’s watch has a black leather strap, made from genuine Italian quality leather, with a white and silver face.  All DW watches have interchangeable straps.  We love the idea of being able to have different colours for different outfits.

Swedish design, watches

Triwa is a Swedish sunglasses and watch brand.  The products are a mixture of classic design and modern swedish features.  We love the brands ethics – it is “dedicated to transforming the perception of the status symbol into a symbol of style”.  Which really made us think about the huge number of watch brands out there that are simply a status symbol.  Triwa ensures the watches are made from leathers which have a natural ageing process.  They use a local Swedish tannery for their products so they know the leather is organic and of high quality.  We really think this is a brand to watch!  It has beautiful designs and ethical processes.

And here we are modelling our watches – we hope you like them!  The Triwa watch is available here, and the Daniel Wellington watch is available here.

Let the blogging commence….

Well our very first blog post…. To say we are excited is an understatement. Starting a blog together is something we have thought about for a while because we love the same things.  We are the best shopping, eating and travelling partners so why not blog about it?  We have now finished studying Fashion Management so this is a nice project for us to do along side our busy lives.  Here is Ollie this morning, all set for our first blog meeting….

We did some planning and started shooting some outfits – apologies if there are some awkward looking photos… this posing malarky may take a bit of getting used to!  We spent a couple of hours taking photos outside in chilly Scotland and were only left wondering why we didn’t start this in Summer?!

Maybe we need more practise than we thought?!?!

After our busy morning of blogging what better way to treat ourselves than a bacon bagel a cup of coffee… yummy.

We are looking forward to our next post about winter coats.  You can also follow us on Instagram and Twitter.
Enjoy reading The Blonde Edit.
