Tie Dye in Edinburgh

I’m starting my masters in Edinburgh this September, and so I spent this weekend hunting for somewhere to live! I’m so excited to live in a city that I love, and looking at flats (and decorating them in my mind) is one of my favourite activities. Luckily the weather was pretty warm whilst we were there, so I got to break out my bare legs and a very summery crop top! This top actually belonged to me when I was around eleven. A lot of my clothes from year 6 and 7 still fit me, not because I’m small now but because I did all my growing at a very young age. I was a tall eleven year old! I cut the bottom half off this top, and ta-da, it became a new crop top! Who says hoarding clothes doesn’t have it’s benefits? I bought this kimono from Rokit in Brick Lane a while back. I think it used to be a bed coat, but it’s more fun as an outside coat. When wearing this at uni, one of my friends asked me with genuine puzzlement “why are you dressed up as a witch today?” because wearing a cape that billows in the wind is fun, that’s why!

I’m wearing one of the skirts that I made a couple of months ago. Although one of the easiest to make, it’s among my favourite things that I’ve made because it’s so easy to wear, but the pu leather is unusual at the same time. I can’t wait to go back up to Scotland, I’m hoping to be there for the Fringe festival. I went briefly in 2010 and it was a lot of fun!

  1. How cute! I love that you still have clothes from when you were so young, I wish I did! I still dream about this amazing elephant sweater I had in elementary school…..

  2. Jess you look awesome! I still have clothes from when I was young but no way do they fit me. Although I’ve been the same size since I was 16 so have a lot of clothes from then šŸ™‚ xx

  3. Woow you will live in Edinburgh, I’m so jealous! It’s on top of my bucket list, it must be so beautiful there! šŸ™‚
    Love your outfit too, indeed a good mix of witchy with the cape and hippie girly girl with the crop top! Really cool shoes too!

  4. Jess I’m so thrilled for you! Edinburgh is such an amazing city and I’m sure you’ll have the best time! You also look downright amazing here! I don’t know many people who can rock those glasses but I think you’ve done it! I also love your skirt, in fact the whole outfit is perfect! Good luck with finding a place to live šŸ˜€ xx
