As the nights start to draw in and you're debating whether or not to put the heating on, we decided to pretend like summer wasn't coming to an end. The best way to do this? - have a full on tropical themed shoot with our girl gang ladies Miss Vicky Viola and Miss West End Girl.  It had been feeling like forever since our wee girl gang had hung out, so a sleepover at Vicky's new pad was the perfect remedy to that. And, being all together, we couldn't miss the opportunity for a fun photoshoot. Enlisting the help of the ever amazing Mint and Chillies we headed to the Royal Botanic Garden with as much colour as we could manage.

It certainly pays off to have friends in vintage places. The lovely Pat of Nicely Eclectic kindly let me raid her summer stock for something suitable for our theme. When she handed me this crazy jumpsuit I have to admit I was slightly skeptical. The pattern screamed 90's bed sheet (in the best way) but I wasn't sure I could pull it off. When I tried it on though I was very pleasantly surprised. The top half fitted rather nicely and I loved the scalloped neckline detail. Matching it with some high, high heels made for a more flattering shape and I added just a few accessories to allow the print to do the talking.

While the other girls were piling on the fruit I decided to go for more of a tropical tourist look and accessorized my crazy pattern with my novelty camera bag. The only way I could've added to the comedy tourist look would've been to add a bum bag and some socks under my shoes, but maybe I'll save that for my next actual holiday. I did have a bit of a go with the fruit, DIYing a sparkly pineapple fascinator. This was a last minute attempt which resulted in me getting glue in my hair. In the end I didn't really like it with the rest of the outfit and ended up hiding it in my bag after a few shots. All that glue based trauma for nothing!
