Here's what I wore for the first day of our awesome girl gang weekender. I wanted to use the special occasion to bring out some new items. Ok, mostly I wanted to rock out these awesome Lou Taylor ant earrings. After celebrating my birthday by having my ears pierced for the first time, I have been counting down the day I got to wear these bad boys. (Yes, I even did a whole blog post about it on Jolly Good). A creature feature style by challenge seemed fitting place to debut them. I paired them with my new green dress. I very much enjoyed swishing about in it all day and the full skirt helped to hide the results of all that cake eating.

I also accidentally went a bit creature feature with my leopard print coat. I didn't actually mean to but my coat collection isn't that extensive so it just kinda happened. As I mentioned in my last outfit post this coat is a well worn favourite. It will probably have to be retired soon but I'm hoping it will at least hold out until the weather gets a bit warmer. The scarf I'm wearing also features a couple of critters in the form of blackbirds and worms. There's something about wearing a worm print that I really enjoy. It's subtle but also a little strange. A perfect combination in my book.

I dyed my hair recently and decided to go for a slightly darker shade. It's also more red than I normally go for but I'm really enjoying it. A combination of Manic Panic - Wildfire and Superdrug - Hot Red. I'm thinking I might stick with this for a wee while. Though the Manic Panic - Electric Lava is calling to me. My attempt at a hair "do" was slightly scuppered by the Glasgow winds. Just picture perfect vintage twists and I'll pretend that's what I left the house with.

Hanging out with Lynsay and Vicky is always a blast. It was great to just kick back and enjoy good company and good cake. I tend to be an over planner and try to cram in as much as possible whenever I go anywhere. Last weekend was a great reminder of how fun it can be to spend hours in a coffee shop, chatting and giggling with some of my favourite ladies.

Having Lynsay as our Glasgow guide was also pretty sweet, especially when she steered us towards this awesome bit of graffiti art. This tiger is a recent addition to the Glasgow street art scene. Created by Klingatron, you can find this beauty down by the Clyde. Perfect for some creature poses.
