Try to keep your love as light as a feather


(Jacket with feathers: DIY/ H&M Trend, White lace top: ASOS, Kilt Skirt: Topshop Boutique, Shoes: Office, Bag: Zara, Hat: H&M, Glass Ring and Fake fur tail: Etsy) #TeenVogue

Wore this to go to the fish shop...yeah, over dressed you'd think. Some school kids laughed. But if I had worn it to University people would have laughed too. And because I went to the fish shop, if I had got any trouble I could have beaten them over the head with my bag containing 1kg of mussels. 

Bought this skirt from Topshop recently and loved it so much I bought a similar one in another colour. The fact I was born in Scotland means I can wear a kilt casually, also it means I don't disappoint all the tourists who are under the illusion that Scottish people wear kilts all the time. Who told them this?

This jacket was from H&M in the trend section, which is the only reason I go shopping in town now. If H&M had their trend section online I would never shop in stores again. The pattern reminded me of this Giambattista Valli jacket seen here on the lovely Carolina. Anyway, I was then inspired to get some feathers to make mine vaguely resemble, maybe if you squint and if you are colour-blind, that beautiful jacket. This is the end product, I got my feathers from eBay and if anyone wants a link just shoot me a comment.

Also, you may have noticed that I have somehow been picked to be a Teen Vogue Fashion Click featured blogger! If I have understood, this should submit to their website, but technology is not my forte! If it has worked, Hi Teen Vogue, if not then technology has beaten me again, technology:19182 Emma: 3.

With love from,

  21. I'm caught 'overdressed' at places all the time. My argument is that I have a different standard of what casual wear is! If there were not people like us, then what would the dress code for every day life be?!

  22. These pictures are great.
    I love your jacket and your bag is amazing.:)

    I've found two pairs of cute shoes in the sales,
    but all in all I was a little bit disappointed because
    the things I hoped to be on sale, weren't on sale...
