Victoria Street

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

One of my favorite parts of Edinburgh was the colorful thoroughfare of Victoria Street. There were so many neat shops to explore, and we found an adorable used bookshop at the top of the street. Andrew, being the book lover that he is, was in heaven when we walked in, and managed to snag a couple vintage copies of his favorite novels. The shop also had tons of one-of-a-kind of vintage maps and prints, so we were able to spend a good chunk of time browsing its many shelves.

I decided to wear my comfortable striped dress, and layered both under and over it since it was so cold and rainy. You can't really tell from the pictures, but I layered a chambray shirt between my coat and dress. I think it helped add a little more color to my outfit when I wasn't wearing my black coat. Although I do like dressing for the cold, I have limited winter clothing options, so a lot of my outfits tend to look bland unless I add layers or accessories with pops of color!

  1. Oh! If you are still in town (Edinburgh), stop by friend's wonderful little shop. She is a sweetheart and the store is a lovely little cozy place. Miss Katie Cupcake. 52 Cockburn StEdinburgh EH1 - old town! From her friend Nina :)

  2. I just bought a striped dress and I'm obsessed now. I want to wear it every day. I love your look, it's absolutely perfect for popping in and out of used book stores.
