WIWT: Tropical Florals, Bunting & Pink Lips

27 July 2014


I'm here with a WIWT outfit post :) It's been a whiiiiile, and this first one in ages has been photographed by my new flatmate Gillian. So, er, if you're a regular Elevatormusik reader, you may just recognise the backdrop. However, we've cobbled together some of my own props to make it look a bit different, ha! This past weekend, I've been out and about in Edinburgh, soaking up the sunshine with ice cream from Mary's Milk Bar and a wander around the Grassmarket; an Indoor Picnic hosted by Google at the Signet Library and a Gin Masterclass at 56 North. We also cooked up a storm last night and made Chicken & Mango Salad with Raita (from the Three Sisters Bake book), Sweet Potato Maple Syrup Wedges & Watermelon Vodka Slushy cocktails (picture here). It's been quite the weekend.. now just kicking back with a pear Kopparberg whilst me & Gillian write up our blog posts. Is it just me or is it SUPER HOT?! Dying..

House of Fraser kindly got in touch and offered me an item of my choice to style up for the summer festival months. I picked this pretty Miss Selfridge tropical floral playsuit*, as it's a really flattering fit with a fitted waist, wrap top and floaty shorts - super flattering for those moments where I fancy a burger & cocktail evening in the sunshine! I am definitely also gonna pair it with sandals to wear to garden parties and a day at the Edinburgh Fringe this summer. But, I also like how the dark print means it goes perfectly with opaque tights, which will see me through to autumn with some winter boots.

I also wore it with my dainty gold bunting necklace for added summer festival appeal! I haven't worn it in ages, so it'll definitely be getting worn this week after a rediscovery. My black wedges are from TU at Sainsbury's too! They're my current go-to whilst I look for some new summer shoes I can wear day-to-day at the office, as my black bunny shoes are all well & good buuuut.. I needs me some new shoes!

PS, fancy a beautiful out-take....?

I look like such a GODDESS, mid-chat
