Red and orange (by some bins)

Yeah, that’s right – I’m posing with some bins! It was Dave’s idea, he was thinking about this photo from our wedding. This setting is distinctly less glamorous, but I like the photos anyway!

These were taken before we went to New York. You can actually barely tell I’m preggers in the photos, not even from the side! Oh how things have changed! I really must take some photos of the expanding bump soon, I’d been slightly overwhelmed with the New york photo backlog, and of course the Scottish weather has gone all November gale force winds again, so I haven’t been taking photos. Hopefully I’ll manage some soon!

What else is there to say about this outfit? Oh yes, the bag! Two strangers commented asked about it that day. The first was a girl in the pub at lunch. She seemed genuinely interested and wanted to know what brand it was (it’s irregular choice) and the second was a guy that came up and went ‘I like your bag’. He didn’t seem particularly interested in the bag though, and it seemed like he just wanted to say something. It’s a strange kind of chat up line, if that was what it was.

I’m submitting this to the ethical fashion bloggers eye popping brights outfit challenge.

Outfit stats:
* vintage dress – etsy * blazer – charity shop * belt – some chain shop, years ago * bag – present from Dave’s mum * shoes – el natralista * brolly – present from Dave *

    That dress looks amazing on you, I love how colourful your outfits are. I’m glad I’m not the only one who is having problems with the weather too, I keep trying to take outfit photos then giving up because I’m worried my camera is going to go over πŸ™ xo

    You look amazing! The colour contrast between the dress and tights is so fab.

    And hello bag twin! Mine has had no comments from mildly creepy men yet though, hehe.

    I like those colors together – they are set off nicely by the bins, actually.

    It’s odd – how this sounds but ” You look great in that picture by the trash bins ”

    I think there’s lots to be said about this outfit, especially the colours (I love the red and orange together and the blazer anchors it nicely). Ugh to the Scottish weather however; I do remember thinking Scotland was such a wonderful country but the weather really is atrocious…
