You may remember the rather beautiful outcome of Kimberley's shoot with Mint and Chillies. Since seeing the results of that I'd been super eager to have a go myself. Luckily our schedules collided and a few weeks ago I meet up with Paulina and Stan in Edinburgh. After sheltering in a cosy coffee shop to avoid a brief spell of rain, it was out onto the Edinburgh streets to shoot away.

It was such a fun shoot! Lots of smiling, giggling and general joviality. These two are so friendly and welcoming, putting me at ease right away. I did my general goofing around and even tried a jump shot (just ignore the fact my feet are barely off the ground). It's safe to say I am thrilled with the results! Paulina manages to make even the most ordinary of Edinburgh streets look magical and I love how she's captured my gingerness and the details of my outfit.

For the shoot I chose to wear my amazing Whitepepper egg dress. It's a firm favourite in my wardrobe and looks great beside my yellow Bonnie Bling ring. It was a tad chilly so my leopard print coat was very much appreciated, though I did brave the cold for a few shots without it.

I had a great time shooting with Mint and Chillies and I really hope Kimberley and I can get together with them again for a proper Wardrobe Conversations shoot. Check out their Edinburgh Blogger project so far and watch out for my Q&A when it pops up. Hopefully my answers aren't too cringey!
