Pink and red and blue and green, in the rain

This is from the weekend I went back to Scotland for my scan. I had really been looking forward to some June fun outside, but the weather was atrocious. Like November, cold and constant rain. I had planned this outfit around the new shoes which I bought myself as a birthday present, but with all the rain I thought I’d better stick with something more closed and less susceptible to being destroyed by mud.

Though I did get to wear them a little on the Thursday when it wasn’t raining, and initial impressions are positive. I takes a bit to getting used to walking in the completely inflexible wooden soles, but despite them having the words high heeled in the name, they’re really very walkable even for a flats aficionado like me. I haven’t taken them to Belgium with me, but I look forward to wearing them for a while when I get back in August.

I’m 13 weeks at this point by the way, and this is the last outfit photo where I don’t look visibly pregnant. By now (week 15) I have a little bump and most of my clothes don’t fit me any more. I really hope I can fit back into everything afterwards!

Outfit stats:
* cardigan – used to be my granny’s * blue top – free with a magazine * green top – charity shop * skirt – zara * shoe – el naturalista * handmade bag – gift * moomin brooches – gift * scarf – swap * brolly – gift *

    Well, I love a good colourful outfit in the rain, and that mural is beyond perfect as a backdrop (I also like the shot with the terrace houses though). Poor Scotland and its sorry excuse for a summer though; I remember when I lived there it was constantly dreary, and my friend did say there were only two seasons: Winter and the 15th of August!

    I adore how you match that backdrop, and that parasol is just such a fun shape. I wish I could be brave and wear such bright colors together like this–one day!

    Between you and the Polka Dot Princess of Chappals vs Stilettos, you make colorful dressing look so easy! Great ensemble and backdrop- and I can’t wait to see your frolicking in your new Ugglebo clogs!
