You are well aware of the fact that I don’t follow every trend. Whereas gingham might be one of the biggest hits this summer, it isn’t for me. I can’t call something a trend when I’ve loved it for years and years and will be wearing it when most people will have fallen out of love with the print. I’m currently reading that plaid will be the new trend this autumn/winter? Really? I mean didn’t I hear the very same words just last year? I think so and besides: I love plaid so so much which shouldn’t come as a surprise with it being one of my most loved Pinterest boards.

I bought today’s gingham dress for only 10 GBP at the Next summer sale. I spotted it and purchased it without any hesitation. We took the photos at Thirlestane Castle, our accommodation in Scotland. It has an amazing holiday apartment and we’re so happy to have stumbled upon it. summer sale finds


You’re dreaming of a holiday in a Scottish castle too and think it’s too expensive? I tell you it isn’t! There are great bargains out there and lots of options to spend a very individual holiday that you will never forget. Far away from any mass tourism.


The apartment has such lovely rooms and an amazing bed. A plaid bed. Of course! It’s Scotland after all. And so so comfy, I can’t even tell you. I filmed it all for you and the vlog is now ready on my YouTube channel. I think it turned out quite well this time especially because we didn’t think but just went with the flow. What probably does the trick: Just keep on filming, have fun with it and never forget to smile or even laugh real hard. You will find it all in the new vid. summer sale finds
Oh, do you want to know another plus that speaks for Thirlestane Castle? It’s only 25 miles south of Edinburgh. Pretty fab if you ask me.

What a lovely post. I really need to find time and travel up North to Scotland for a visit. The pictures are amazing, kudos to the photographer.


That’s so kind, thanks so much. And yes, Scotland has some amazing spots, for example the Highlands are out of this world.
