Converse-ations at Rye & Soda

It's now officially less than 2 years until Gordon and I get married. So far all we've done is set a date, book a venue and a photographer. I keep thinking it's ok cause it's ages away, I have plenty time... everyone else seems to disagree! Last weekend we decided it was time to pull our fingers out and start looking into a few options. We headed to Aberdeen to meet prospective caterers for the big day. But I couldn't talk food without eating some first...

It gave us time to sit down and finalize our invitation list too! Rye & Soda had announced their opening a few days beforehand so there was no question about where we'd go. I really wanted to try the quinoa dish but unfortunately they'd run out. Instead I had a smoked salmon & avocado sandwich. Probably the best sandwich I've had in a long time. The double decker element was a pleasant surprise, but my side salad looked strangely like chips... Gordon welcomed them onto his plate though, waste not want not! His full breakfast looked to die for. I also really enjoyed the raw juice - kale, white grape, cucumber & apple - it was a surprisingly sweet, refreshing drink. We'd been stuck in a 2 hour traffic jam on the way through so our time at Rye & Soda was short and sweet, but we're loving the relaxed brunch style & I'm super impressed with the healthy options! Next time I'll make sure I've more time to sample the rest of the menu.

Converse trainers c/o Cloggs // Zara leather jacket // Primark vest top & jeans // Prada Saffiano tote

My outfit for the day was casual, and a little more masculine/rocky than usual, but perfect for rushing around town in the rain. I never know what to put on my feet when it rains in summer. Sandals will end up soggy and boots are a bit extreme... luckily the guys at Cloggs have sorted me out. I haven't worn Converse since I was about 14 - pink checkered hi-tops if I remember rightly! To be honest I'm not sure why I've left it so long to get a pair again, they're so comfy and easy to wear. They go with pretty much everything - from ripped denim & leather jackets to girly tea dresses and cardigans. Navy seems to be my colour of the moment but they literally come in every colour, and even pattern, imaginable. Cloggs have a huge Converse range available on their site! I especially love the tie dye & studded versions. Which pair are your favourites?

  1. If it makes you feel any better, I'm getting married in May, and we've booked exactly the same as you, wedding and photographer! Might need to pull my finger out :)
