What I Wore: Lazy WeekendSunday, August 11, 2013
Where is time going at the moment? I can't believe it is nearly the start of a new week already. We've had such a lazy weekend as well. It was LF's birthday at the end of last week so we had a night out with friends on Friday followed by a day relaxing with the dogs and having long baths yesterday. I had great plans to be productive today, there is a load of exciting stuff on including the Foodies Festival in Inverleith Park, Judy's Affordable Vintage, an alternative craft fair and of course all the usual Fringe related stuff. So of course I'm battling a cold. Sigh.
I'll just have to make up for it this week. I've already got tickets to see a debate at the Book Festival later this week but I also want to make time for a 'tourist' day. I'm always in such a rush running around town that, as I mentioned in my last post, I tend to just get annoyed with it. I figure the best way to combat this is to go out with the intention of enjoying myself. Besides, at the very least it'll make for an interesting blog post. Although, seriously, if you are in Edinburgh and are looking here for Festival related advice I definitely recommend checking out Ever So Juliet, she's way more on the ball with what is going on locally than me!
This is another new Primark dress, it fact it is exactly the same style as the dress I wore in my previous post just a different pattern. I'm still trying to avoid fast fashion as much as possible, in fact I've managed to build up an acceptable work wardrobe from charity shops over the last 6 weeks. I was in the city centre earlier this week and decided to run in and escape the crowds for a minute and I got stuck. I ended up coming out with the two dresses and two new pairs of shoes as well. I'm disappointed in myself, but I know I'm not going to make a habit of it, and it was a nice wee treat with my first pay cheque.
