Weekday Wear Link Up! Same Outfit, Different Shoes: Edinburgh Castle Outfit

For today's Weekday Wear Link Up, showing one of the simplest ways to change up an outfit. Wearing the same pieces but changing the shoes to create two different outfits for two very different days in Scotland.

What I wore:

ScarfLouis Vuitton monogram shawl in bleu
Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
Shoes: RMK Chester black ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Wore this outfit to go explore Edinburgh castle with the boys. If you're in Edinburgh, it's a must-see! We frequently walked up to here during our time in Scotland, as you can see from my jumping pic! It's just so photogenic on top of the castle rock. The views you get from the various points inide the castle are stunning too, you can see all over the city and on a clear day like this was you can see right across the Forth to Fife.

As it is a high point in the middle of Edinburgh it can be quite chilly with the wind, so I layered up! My trusty leather jacket with a long sleeve black tee underneath and grey skinny jeans made a great monochromatic outfit with the ankle boots. With all of the black and grey, the Louis Vuitton bleu shawl was a lovely pop of colour and being a wool blend, it helped to keep me cosy.

The boys had a fun day and were eager to tell everyone that they visited an actual castle for the rest of the trip!


Last worn: leather jacket, Louis Vuitton scarf, black tee, grey skinny jeans, ankle boots, Louis Vuitton speedy bandouliere bag.

Views From Edinburgh Castle and the One O'Clock Gun Firing




I didn't take a lot of video as we went around the castle - too cold to have my camera out much! So it's just under 2 minutes with some of the views from the castle, the beautiful interiors and of course the firing of the famous one o'clock gun.





What I wore:

Tee: thrifted Maison Scotch black paint splatter print long sleeved tee
JeansJeanswest Cecile dove grey skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagLouis Vuitton Damier Ebene 30 speedy bandouliere

Why I wore it:

Exactly the same as the outfit above, I just switched the shoes! Instead of my ankle boots I picked Converse for a day in the park with the boys. Such an easy way to change an outfit, just swapping out and accessory, but it made such a difference. Converse are my go-to on cold park days with the boys!

Because I really liked the first outfit I kept it all the same, I love how the cobalt blue Louis Vuitton scarf pops against the black tee, leather jacket and grey jeans.

How You Can Wear It:

If you have an outfit you love, wear it again! Everyone re-wears their favourite pieces. If you want to make it slightly different to avoid feeling like you are repeating yourself over and over, swap out an accessory. It can be as simple as changing the shoes you're wearing, or you could change the bag or scarf!

  6. Dear Mica, I see you really enjoyed Edinburgh - although it was that cold! It looks perfect how the cobalt blue of the scarf pops against the look, I agree! And so cool how different your outfit looks only with changing your shoes.
