Summer Lookbook 2014

I loved writing my Winter Lookbook series at the start of the year, so I thought I'd carry on the theme and continue with a Summer Lookbook this season. Most clothing pieces featured in this post are from my HUGE summer clothing haul post I wrote last month. I have linked direct website links to where you can purchase most of the clothing items on line. Where items are no longer available this season, I have linked similar items to the ones I am wearing.

A Day In Aberdeen

I can bet every one of you reading this has thought or said you will do something but never get around to doing it. I am a victim of this. So after discussing our desires to travel the world whilst walking through Waverley train station in Edinburgh last week, Ken and I decided we would not by-pass the remark and booked a train to Aberdeen the next again day. 

It wasn't the most extravagant destination in the world, but with a 2.5 hour train journey away, different accent to understand and the humiliation of not getting the signature Edinburgh 'chippy sauce' with a bag of chips - it felt like we were on a mini getaway.

So, if there's something you've said you would plan on doing in the future, whether it's meeting up with a friend you haven't seen in a while or visiting a city you've always dreamt of going to - do it! It doesn't have to be the most adventurous thing in the world, but I can guarantee it will make you feel better afterwards!
