Outfit | Striped Shorts

Top: Topshop
Shorts: Zara (sale)
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Necklace: Argos (similar here)
Watch: Calvin Klein

I mentioned that I was going to attempt to take some pictures of what I wore on holiday, and you know what I actually managed to capture a few outfits!

Oh and look its not black! Holidays are probably the only time I abandon the darker hues and just embrace lighter colours and fabrics. I don't tend to dress up too much either, comfort is key, I am on holiday for a break after all!

Photo Dairy | The Scotsman Steps, Work No. 1059

I have been on a roll lately finding pictures I had forgotten about. Bit of a lazy way of blogging I know but I take so many pictures I am not surprised more than a few fall through the net.

Now if you aren't familiar with Edinburgh (my home city) which I am sure not all of you are, then this post might seem a little odd. Its just a staircase right?

Well yes it is but it was transformed from a rather ugly, dirty and a dilapidated flight of stairs into a wonderful work of art. All thanks to Martin Creed and the Fruit Market Gallery
Their article will explain it much better and in far greater detail than I can. But basically artist Martin Creed was commissioned to do this work by the Fruit Market Gallery as part of his solo exhibition 'Down Over Up' which was shown at the Gallery in the summer of 2010. 

The work wasn't finished and open for the public to view (and walk all over) until 2011 which was after I had moved to Brighton.
So despite reading about it and seeing pictures online I didn't get to see it for myself until quite some time afterwards.

The exhibition was only on for a short time but the transformation of the steps is permanent. It is subtle and is not necessarily something you would take notice of immediately but if you take the time to look and appreciate it is quite beautiful.

Outfit | Abstract Print

Top: Zara (sale)
Jeans: Topshop Joni 
Boots: Sam Edelman
Glasses: Ray-Ban
Watch: Calvin Klein
Necklace: Argos
Rings: Accessorize, Vintage and Street Sellers

Well don't I look miserable?! Probably because it is really the end of summer if I'm wearing boots and jeans. 
I can't complain too much as I am currently on holiday in Spain, hopefully sunning myself as we speak (look at me getting fancy with scheduled posts! Is this what proper bloggers do?!). Anyway this is what I was wearing the day before I left.

There hasn't been much getting me out of these Joni jeans since I got them. I still love my numerous pairs of Jamie jeans but I might be a bit of a convert to these as well. Topshop in my opinion really do make the best jeans on the high street.

This top was an opportune purchase in the Zara sale a few weeks ago when I was at home in Edinburgh. It was the last one on the rack and it was calling my name. To me it looks a lot like something you would find in Cos but for only £12 it was a bit of a bargain.

Sales are my ultimate weakness. I will consider normal full price purchases for ages but as soon as something is reduced i just 'have' to have it.
I really need to develop some form of self control. Especially with final year fast approaching. I need to be buying yarns and weaving materials, not more clothes!
