OOTD: Feeling Akward Yet?

 Trousers - H&M (similar here)
Short Sleeve Jumper - H&M
Shoes - Converse
Necklace - Primark
Bag - Lulu Guinness

It's been a manic few weeks for me -a suprise trip to a&e, the future fashion event at Edinburgh International Fashion Festival and the launch of somewhereto_re:store in Glasgow. That's why a leisurely lunch deeking the new Dower & Hall Autumn/Winter collection with my two babestations Thank Fifi and Betty Swollocks sounded like a perfect way to break up an otherwise pretty hectic week. Can I also add there is nothing more awkward standing off Buchanan Street posing for outfit posts. You'd think I'd have this thing down by now.

It should suprise no one that I am all about a good A/W collection - but what I really love about Dower & Hall is that while they release new collections, they are less trend focused and more about creating transeasonal pieces that you can keep forever. It's not so much about your timeless classics and playing it safe - but having fun and really using jewellery as a form of self expression. How can I not get behind an ethos like that?
Dower & Hall are conscious about always trying to source their jewels ethically and means you can get some really cool unusual pieces in store. The Dotty ring collection properly caught my eye (just look how good it looks on me y'all)  and loved the idea that the rings can be ordered bespoke to the colours that you love. The aquamarine, sapphire, diamond and tsavorite was already pretty perfect in my eyes.  I also couldn't quite get over the feather collection. Super wearable bohemian pieces they just seem effortlessly chic.

Seriously though I can think of worse ways to spend a lunch break than trying on some utterly dreamy jewellery. Got to start saving  to get a dotty ring to call my own!

    1. I don't have much of a garden to speak of. City photos seems like a weird way to spend a day x

    1. I like a wee short sleeved jumper too. Seems like an odd piece to own but great transitional piece between seasons! x
