There’s nothing like a sunny Saturday to make you want to put on your glad rags and head into town, am I right?
Last weekend, I decided to do just that, and while I was at it, I took advantage of the nice weather to wear a few new pieces that had been dying for an outing…
The Sunglasses: Glasgow-based glasses designers IOLLA have recently released a line of sunglasses with polarised lenses, in a range of colours and frames.
This rose gold mirrored Inglis pair were the perfect accessory for a walk along the river, as the polarised lenses helped to keep the glare from the sun to a minimum.
The Playsuit: With the rare opportunity of a sunny day, I decided that it was high time I de-tagged my new playsuit and took it out for a spin! I picked up this Archive by Alexa Chung at M&S one in the sale after having my eye on it for quite some time.
This playsuit has delicate slip-style straps and, along with the satin fabric, it reminds me a little of lingerie (great for a night out, but a Saturday down by the Clyde? Not so much!), so I dressed it down for daytime by layering with a white tee and biker jacket.
Also, note to self: wearing a playsuit sounds really cute until you need to use the bathroom. This is the part I always forget about until it’s too late…
The boots: A couple of weeks back, I discovered the new Marble Effects collection from Dr Martens. As a Docs girl since my schooldays, AND a lover of all things marble, these statement boots were my firm favourite from the new capsule collection (consisting of two pairs of boots, two satchels and two street style-inspired tees).
I absolutely loved stomping around town in these boots, and catching the reflection of the striking white soles throughout the day! I also love how they have toughened up the feminine look of the playsuit.
After hanging out at the water, accidently walking into a VERY busy Pokestop (whoops!) and making friends with a lovely dog called Hugo, we headed for some coffee at Dear Green’s Cafe Project.
Sunshine and damn good coffee – isn’t that what weekends are all about?
What did you get up to this weekend? What are your favourite pieces to wear on a sunny day?
