Green Is The New Black

Green Is The New Black 9

Kermit the Frog once sang “it’s not easy being green“, but Kermie, you couldn’t be more wrong! If you read Monday’s post, you will probably remember that I took part in a charity shopping challenge as part of Greener Scotland’s 52 Ways to go Green campaign and had a fabulous time second-hand shopping at the Southside’s finest, Glad Rags Thrift.

Picking up a cute outfit that was super affordable, with proceeds going to a good cause AND kind to the environment? Sounds like a win-win-win result to me! Maybe green is the new black after all…

I took to Kelvingrove Park – the greenest space I could think of – to show off my thrifted finds on the kind of beautiful Glasgow afternoon that feels as precious as a one-off vintage piece.

In the still of the park, the sun peeked gently through the trees as I walked across the grass and listened to the birds. It was hard to believe I was just a hop, skip and jump away from the crowded streets and traffic!

I love this vibrant green tea dress, all I need is a tea party to wear it to! Whaddya say? Meet me under the big tree, I’ll bring the cake and you bring the tea?

The black plastic jewellery added a welcome pop of contrast to my bright ensemble, and I couldn’t resist throwing on a pair of black sunglasses to match.

The great thing about wedges are how comfortable they are to walk in – although I still took them off and enjoyed wiggling my toes in the grass a bit!

  1. Outfit looks fab! That dress is so pretty and is definitely making me want to add some green to my wardrobe (in all senses of the word). Definitely need a Glasgow picnic in the sun asap! Hx
