HOW TO WEAR AUTUMNAL HUES
'Autumnal hues' has long been one of my favourite fashion phrases so when I saw the opportunity to dress accordingly and subsequently blog about said outfit, I took it!
Outfit inspo really can come from anywhere and when I saw how beautiful this tree line path looked with the oranges and yellows together, I knew just the outfit I wanted to wear later that day.
A super gorgeous warm and sunny day in Glasgow was the perfect time to debut my new River Island blazer which I picked up in the sale last week. I actually did wear the blazer at the intu Braehead A/W fashion event a couple of weeks ago but sadly had to give it back so when I spotted it half price in the sale, I snapped it up right away! I love the gold button details and the slightly longer length as well as the structured shoulders. (similar blazer linked below)
I picked up this bucket bag from Very.co.uk about a month ago and I have had SO many compliments on it. It was only £28 and I love the hoop handle giving me all the Chloe vibes but without the price tag. This slightly mustard shade is one of this season's must have colours and makes any outfit look a little bit more wintery. As it's suede, I don't think it will get much use when it's raining so I always make sure to use when it's dry.
I love the combination of the bright orange with the muted yellow tone of the bag so I decided to just let the blazer and bag do all the talking and kept the rest of my outfit quite simple. I teamed them with a grey t-shirt from New Look, jeans from Zara and white croc effect heels from River Island.
GLASGOW IN THE SUNSHINE
Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day in Glasgow and the sunset was just stunning. Blythswood Square is always a good spot for photos at 'golden hour' so I dragged my friend, Kathleen, with me for some quick pics before heading down the hill to Stack & Still for pancakes.
PANCAKE DATE AT STACK & STILL
We then headed to the press launch of Stack & Still on West Regent Street for some pancakes and prosecco. Kathleen is something of a pancake connoisseur so I knew she'd be the perfect plus one.
After much deliberation, I decided to go for the protein pancakes with banana and salted caramel whilst Kathleen opted for the Big Breakfast short stack of pancakes. There's a huge selection of pancake combinations to try (over 12 million to be precise) and they cater to every pancake need from gluten free to sugar free and buckwheat as well as the original (and best) buttermilk.
There's a self dispensing bar with a huge selection of craft beers as well as gin cocktails and even prosecco! There's also a vast cocktail menu (the salted caramel espresso martini sounds pretty damn tasty) if you prefer your drinks prepared with a more human touch.
I loved the cinnamon throughout my protein pancakes but did need to order some extra maple syrup as the top pancake soaked up all of the topping so I'd definitely recommend ordering some extra syrups and sauces if you have a short stack of pancakes.
The Prosecco pump is easy to use once you know how but I'd get one of the staff to help you the first time so that you don't waste a single drop of your drink - because that would be a real travesty!
