We are Stardust. We are Golden.

It's been like Woodstock here the last couple of days! A lovely little heat wave hit wave happened to hit Scotland just as the undergrads finished their final exams. It's been mayhem. The meadows were covered with people, spending the day barbecuing, drinking, playing/listening to live music, and footballing (which, might I say, the vast majority of Brits do better than perhaps the best Varsity athletes at my High School).

To add to what proved to be an absolutely flawless day, I found this little sundress for 10 quid and am kind of obsessed with it. It's comfortable, breathes, fits perfectly, and is a flower print I can actually get behind (I'm picky). I also found some stellar new nail polish/varnish (silly vernacular differences) for a 3 for 2 deal. Couldn't decide which color to wear first: the fluorescent yellow or the sparkletastic red, so I went for both. It's almost scary how well they match my dress too...OCD face.

Tight rope walking!
And the sun finally starts to set at about 9:30 PM

Dress: I have no idea...I forgot to look at the name of the store. FAIL; Nail Polish: Boots; Earrings: San Lorenzo market, Florence

Love the dress. Wish I had one.

And the day looked wonderful.

Nice homage to a great song.

Lovely dress and the earrings!

It's been very warm and sunny here in Finland too, for about a week now. Even +25-30 celsius.

I really happy to see your post here in EDINBURGH. I am an Korean and went Edinburgh University as a postgraduate worder in Dept, of Englihs. i can eve n pin point most of the shooting spots in your posts(well, almost all the places in the Castle and the Royal Mile and Meadows and the every single paved streets can be photo spots as I remember.). Spring in Eding burgh is beyond comparison especially in the Prices Garden.
Really nice a fashion blog in Edinburgh. It is eve my secon hometown.
Well, I like styles as well. Among the army green waxjackets and hats you must be outstanding as yourself.

I will see you around. Unfortunately not to Edinburgh, even though that is what I want to do right now, but to your blog.

If there was ever a perfect summer dress I do believe you have stumbled across it- absolutely stunning! And adorable mix match of nail colors; I might have to copy that decision...

Oh my gosh I am stoked to see your nails representing like that!! One of my favorite things to do is add a little flair to the ring finger, it's so Atlanta (or at least I always thought so... do you know where it comes from??) Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is lovely as well :~)
