From my favorite dessert stops to must-see venues across town, I think this list has a little something for everyone. I tried to write them in the order I would walk to all of these locations from my flat, so activities that are physically located close together are near each other in the list below.

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from Edinburgh and a list of fun activities and things to do in the city. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, located on the Firth of Forth near the North Sea.

I visited Edinburgh a handful of times while studying abroad in Glasgow, as the cities are just a short hour-long train ride apart.

The theme for this month’s Thrifty Six collaboration is “Inspired by Travel”—what a fun prompt, huh? Immediately my mind started racing with visions of Parisian chic looks, tropical accessories, easy floral dresses perfect for the Tuscan countryside... But as I started to picture outfits I could create using pieces from my own closet, I realized none of the looks incorporated secondhand items, ha! I had forgotten the whole point of the collaboration… I shifted gears and decided to embrace a much cozier option inspired by a recent vacation of my own—the mountain getaway I took to Breckenridge a few weekends ago! Yes, it might not be as romantic as some of the European-inspired outfits I was imagining, but the girls I saw in Breck were sporting some very cute sweaters and booties, making me very excited for fall. It was the perfect excuse to break out my secondhand camo buttondown!  Continue reading “Travel-Inspired with The Thrifty Six”
