Glasgow

Zara coat // Primark dress // Next shoes // "YSL" earrings from ebay // Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses // Prada Saffiano tote

If you were expecting a referendum based post, I'm sorry to disappoint! Luckily these photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, before the chaos of the results. Personally I'm glad that we're still a part of the UK, but I'm sick to the back teeth of all the violence, verbal abuse and general negativity surrounding the whole thing. Lets just all be friends eh?

Moving on...

As you can see I was feeling some sixties vibes this day. I've only recently managed to get my hair into a beehive again since I got it chopped off all those months ago. Sixties style has always been a favourite of mine so this season's trends are right up my street. Gordon bought me the pink Zara swing coat for my birthday in July so I paired it with a simple shift dress and loafers for a classic look. If I'd had my cats eye sunnies on it would've been the perfect throwback! ;)


On the way home from the wedding celebrations Gordon and I took a detour through Glasgow. First we stopped off at Wholefoods in Giffnock, then headed into town for a look round the shops and a bite to eat. I love the mix of buskers around Buchanan Street but the guys pictured above were my favourite. They looked like they'd walked straight off the set of Braveheart. Their unusual blend of bagpipes and drums sounded amazing and was attracting a bit of a crowd.

We ate at Bread Meats Bread - somewhere I'd been desperate to try for a long time. With the recent opening of the Boozy Cow in Aberdeen (still not been!) burgers have been playing on my mind! Gordon had a "Smokey" burger while I eventually decided on the "Black & Blue"; a Scotch beef burger with blue cheese, bacon, slow onions, pickles & sauce. It was a beast, but one that was easily tamed, i.e it was easily squished together so I could get a good bite! The burger was messy, juicy and full of flavour and the bacon was suitably crispy - thank God, I hate pink chewy bacon! We shared sides of caramelized fries and sweet poutines. I hadn't realised the caramelized fries were made with sweet potato too. This should probably be stated on the menu, but hey they both tasted great so I guess that's all that matters. From all the buzz around BMB I had expected it to be more of an experience than the quick in and out burger stop that it was, but we enjoyed it all the same. It's handy if you're after a pit stop lunch in the city centre, and want an upgrade from TGIs! You can find Bread Meats Bread at 104 St Vincent St, just off Buchanan St :)

Where's your favourite place to eat in Glasgow?

  1. Your outfit is gorgeous! I love the 60s style, but I don't pull it off quite as well as you. And that burger looks amazing... if I am ever in Glasgow I might have to visit Bread Meats Bread.
