RETAIL THERAPY // Spring Fashion Shopping Inspo

Update the wardrobe with these fab finds.


We are lovin’ this warmer weather! And you know what that means, don’t you? Time to change it up in the wardrobe department. We’ve got ankles to bear, t-shirts to wear and sandals to slip-on. We are soooo ready to replace the winter woollies with light, flowing fabrics, fun accessories and fab funky shoes.

So, we went a-hunting in the Highlands for some spring fashion inspo and found plenty...

...and when you're on the look out for your new spring finds, please remember to shop local! Each time we shop locally we're supporting our friends, neighbours, friends-of-friends.... the people and families who run or work in our lovely local shops. So check out our ladies, mens, shoes and kids options first. Thankyou!

Sexy and casual, Zoe’s silk dresses flow beautifully and create that perfect silhouette.

7 // Whytes Clothing and Tailoring

These guys have been dressing Highlanders since 1895! Yep! And they’ve been at their flagship store in Mossy since 1920. Now, they cater for both the lay-deeze and men (and stock school wear too) but we love the range of men’s clothing here. There’s a fab focus on quality – we’re talking comfortable t-shirts, polo shirts, dress shirts, shorts, pants, belts, super-stylish hats (we love a man in a hat!), socks and more. Lots of variety - it really is the place to go for men in Mossy.
