Fashion Lusting: August

Save your Hawaiian prints for someone else. I want knitwear and ankle boots.

It is the start of a new month, a big month for Edinburgh City. The Fringe has arrived in town — must try to embrace it this year. With a new month comes new fashion needs with everyone bringing new weather situations to deal with and new items that lets be fair you just need and want. The basics of a consumer. (4 years at university did not go to waste.)

At this point, summer clothes are starting to become tiresome. Give me a fluffy jumper, some tights and an ankle boot. Oh and a leather jacket. I don’t want tropical printed tops and palazzo pants any more, I need transitional pieces that will serve me fit in November just as well as they did in August. *Passes out at the bus stop in my Arran knit jumper in August*
