Hey everyone, how are you all today? Did you have a good weekend? Do anything or nothing… You can catch up with my goings on over on Instagram. I went and seen Grease at the Kings Theatre in Glasgow last Wednesday with Chris. It was soo good! It’s one of, if not my most favourite musical! I used to watch it on repeat all the time, as well as maybe knowing all the words off by heart? There are a few photos on my Instagram if you want a little nosy. Also, if you would like proper outfit post/photos then please let me know in the comments here or on Instagram. I know I’ve been MIA for quite a few months but I’m not going to talk about it too much right now. I just want to talk about my outfit and what I have been to in the last week or so.
A few years ago Chris’ parents booked a cabin in Arrach. The first time they went with their parents & we just visited for the day. Along with other members of Chris’ family, who can say no to beautiful sites & a try of a hot tub! The first post I did was I’ll Meet You At The Bridge all the way back in 2013! So excuse the quality of everything… Then the following year (the year we got married! 2014) they booked another wee break last minute! Luckily for us, we were invited up again for the day. It’s such a great opportunity for outfit photos & photography. Plus its nice to be able to go out and explore, if you want to know more in detail about what we got up to, what I wore and to see the beautiful sites take a look at my post Losing Myself In Argyll, Scotland. So that will give you a bit of a back story of where I’m going with this…
As you can see, we have a slight love for the ol’Scottish cabin holiday… We aren’t the only ones though, the whole family enjoys them! So last year Chris’ Gran decided to treat the whole family and take us back here again. I think it was around this same time last year? I could be right or wrong here, I’ve no idea! Well, I was super excited! Everyone together, I would get to cuddle the babies, plenty of good food & a bbq on the cards! We can never be too sure about the weather though, I was just excited about the food mostly… So to set the weekend off we ended up going to Amarettos, which I’ve talked about many times before and shared food photos on my Instagram. Then as we were walking towards the car I started to get these sharp pains in my abdomen, being of the female kind, I just put it down to being that time of the month. So off we head, a convoy of about 4 cars? One after the other.
This cat actually just roamed freely around the village shop. She also belonged to the village postman and was called Jess! Super cute, I couldn’t help but get some photos and cuddles! Her bed was on the counter next to the till.
As we continue along the journey my tummy starts to feel even worse & then it hits me. Im going to be sick. With nowhere to stop and going about 50 odd miles, I had to throw my head out the window and get on with it… As you can imagine, it was not a pretty picture and one of my least favourite memories of my life. So unfortunately, for the next 2-4 days I spent them in bed, in agony and running to the toilet every so often. I may have come out near the end, but I was worried about infecting everyone. Especially the wee babies! Still to this day, I’ve no idea what brought it on. Chris & I ate the same meals the few days before so I can’t have food poisoned us, plus it doesn’t work that quickly once you’ve just eaten. So it can’t have been the meal. I assumed it was a bug, but no one caught it off me!
So that gets you all caught up on where I’m going with this! We were then invited down for a night when they booked and when it was coming closer to the date. So of course we were up for that, can’t say no to a hot tub can we? A few weeks ago I then ended up in hospital for a wee while (detailed post coming soon). So after that happening and not being able to enjoy the last trip, I think they felt that we both needed a wee trip away (& fattening up, especially me!). Which, Chris & I also agreed would be good for the both of us. With some great food once again, the chance of some sun & beautiful views. A relaxed weekend just before I returned to work was just what I needed! So thanks again Cammy & Suzy!
As I knew it was going going to be a casual weekend, with the possibility of walking, I wanted to be pretty comfy and prepared for the sun. On the second day we decided to go exploring because it was a beautiful day, I’m sure you can see from the photography I shot. I didn’t even plan for outfit photos, but when I seen this stunning backdrop I couldn’t not! Everything matched pretty well so I didn’t waste the opportunity. Plus who really knows when I’ll be back here? The dress is a very pretty summery yellow, with flowers all over. I thought it would go great with my comfy red cons. Before we went we knew on the last day we would be going out, Sunday/last day tradition! So I made sure to pack my cute little black bag. I used my backpack on the journey down, packed with all my crap. So I kept with in the same family of tones with my sunglasses & lipstick. I also wanted to add to the girlyness & cuteness with the dress, so I added some frilly white socks!
What do you think of the outfit, what would you do differently? Is seeing the scottish countryside on your to do list? Where would you like to visit! Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to chat to you guys.
