It's About Time...

...for an outfit post! Recently, it's either been raining when I want to get some photos taken or I'm re-wearing something that I've already used on this blog. Or I'm just wearing jeans and a comfy hoodie, which does not make for an exciting outfit!

Dress and blouse from French Connection, shoes from Schuh

I actually wore this blouses pretty, pastel twin in this post, but I felt that this one deserved it's very own post anyway. I love layering tops over a simple dress like this, and I think the coraly-red (totally a word) colour of this blouse is particularly stunning against the black. It's a nice outfit to wear when it's cloudy but humid, like it has been recently.

And there is my boyfriend, pretending to give up and walk off! While wearing my handbag of course.

In other news, me and my boyfriend have watched many an episode of Man V Food in the past and last night I discovered that there is a food challenge right here in Edinburgh: just up the road in fact! Afterz, an ice cream parlour not far from where I live, offers the Titanic Ice Cream Sundae Challenge which involves eating a huge sundae in 15 minutes. The sundae is pictured below! I'm not sure we'd manage that, but we might have to venture down and share a sundae soon.
