Sister, Sister

Me and my big sister at the Royal Botanic Gardens

My sister came up to visit me in Edinburgh for a few days this week. We had a wonderful and hectic time: we went out for lots of lovely meals, visited a market (where we bought some delicious cupcakes), wandered around the Botanic Gardens, had some delicious margaritas (banana, mint and strawberry were all sampled), did some shopping, and went up Calton Hill to see the view. We've always been very close, and I lived with her in London for a few months until I moved up to Edinburgh in January, so I really miss her. It was great to see her, and hopefully next time she'll stay longer.

She always dresses very stylishly; I've got lots of clothes that were chosen by her or used to belong to her. My love of clothes and make up (MAC lipsticks in particular!) has always been very much inspired by her. My life and my style would definitely be lacking if she wasn't such a big part of it. Below are some photos of her trip, with some of our outfits too.

On the way out for dinner and drinks: I love that we're both wearing black peep toe heels! Her dress is from French Connection, blazer from Zara and shoes from LK Bennett. My dress is from Warehouse, blazer from Topshop and shoes from New Look.

There is always a lot of silliness when we are together!

  7. I knew there was someone out there who would understand the tragedy of having frown lines at 22! I was reading the list of the usual culprits for face lines and, therefore, frown lines: sun, smoking, heredity and skin type. I've decided I'm going to blame my parents because I barely ever get any sun (hence my being ultra pale) and I don't smoke. My skin type is combination/normal and I don't know how much it affects getting wrinkles or not. Anyway, I'll stop writing now. I've never been to Edinburgh, but I'd quite like to visit!

  8. I adore your black dress! The texture is just so adorable and classy.
