Wrapping up in scarves and layers during September feels cosy and right. Being photographed against rain-drenched cobbled streets also feels appropriate for this time of year. Dubai, as lovely as it is, lacks the atmosphere that some ancient buildings and murky weather can lend. So thank you Edinburgh!
I have been here for a few days and retail-wise, haven’t even stepped into Zara, Topshop and the like. No, the focus has been 100% Primarni – that’ll be Primark to you and me.
I have spent less than £85 and yet walked out with about 30 items. This denim jacket was one of my most exciting purchases. The bright burst of blue is everything I look for and this one came with gold tips and shoulder studding. Whilst I think studding can be overdone (Zara Autumn/Winter collection for example….) I found myself gazing at this and so felt that the signs were there to snap it up. It was about £16 and I really love it. No regrets!
Thanks to Susan for the photos and the heavy night out that followed taking them J

I made another cheeky trip last night and hoarded basic ballerinas (I LOVE THESE - £4 a pair) and some nice accessories.
I normally get stressed even thinking about Primark but if you are in Edinburgh then you are in luck because you are served with a well merchandised and pretty calm shopping experience. I will miss it when I am back in the sandpit J
Hope you have all had a great week!
