Zara Fringe Top

Hello everyone,

It’s nearly the weekend and hope you have all some fabulous plans! I myself will be taking it easy after a busy week!

I just wanted to share with you all a recent outfit I wore just the other day. The thin sweater is from H&M and I am thinking I need to get one in every colour as they are so useful for wearing by themselves or with a shirt underneath – buy it here now. However it does appear they don’t have it in black any more, sad times. On this day I wore a lovely fringy cami top I got on sale from zara, unfortunately they no longer have it, it is great for layering whilst the weather is still pretty chilly (as you can see in the photo). Maybe once the weather gets better I can show the beauty of the whole top as it has some lovely embroidery on it!

Orange is the new black, or if in doubt wear both!

Happy New Year Readers!

First off, we are sorry for our lack of blogging. We have both been so busy over the festive period, that the blonde edit has had to take back seat. But we are back and ready to take on 2015 and what it has to offer!

There has been scattered snow showers, so the need to wrap up is certainly a must. I wore this colour popping orange (looks more like a red/orange in the photos) Zara coat to do a little bit of retail therapy and to see if I could get bargains (*will share with you soon*) as the sales come to an end. It is a great colour to bring into the spring time as it isn’t a heavy coat and can brighten up any outfit as you can see here in my typical all black!

Winter is Officially Here – Time to Look Out Our Winter Coats.

Hope you have had a lovely weekend!

Don’t know about you but we just love our winter coats… Once our Spring/Summer wardrobes are put away the Autumn/ Winter items are put in their place, and are mostly full with our vast selection of coats in all various colours and styles.

We love these coats…  they aren’t too heavy which is good for layering when shopping in the warm shops over the festive period. Ollie is wearing a Topshop collarless boucle wool coat and Fi wears a very similar one in grey from Zara.  The grey one isn’t available on the website anymore but it is still in some Zara stores. And Zara now has it in an ecru colour! It is beautiful!

Added bonus with thumb holes to make it extra cosy

Stay cosy everyone!

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!
