I’m Adele, a Yorkshire lass living in Scotland with my fish farmer partner Andy, our 6 year old girl, Madeleine & 3 year old boy, Thomas.
Nest & Dressed is my personal blog in which I share my love of fashion, adventure, creativity and colour whilst striving to live a more ethical and sustainable life.

interior inspiration | upcycling DIY projects

I love interior design and have a constant desire to feather my nest for my little brood. I’m also a keen upcycler so can often be found rummaging in a skip & slapping chalk paint on salvaged furniture or turning an old duvet cover into a pair of curtains. We are slowly decorating our rented house & transforming it into a bright, comfortable family home. I look forward to sharing the journey with you.

wish lists | outfits | fashion news

I have a penchant for pretty frocks & shoes, although the Scottish weather often keeps me in waterproofs & wellies much to my dismay. I’m a fan of vintage & retro style and you can expect a plethora of spots, stripes & colourful prints in my ‘Shop My Style’ section.
My outfit posts are as raw & real as my mum-tum and varicose veins. No photo-shopping here; just honest images of my everyday ethical outfits.

family adventures | solo getaways | hotel & spa reviews

We are very lucky to live in the beautiful area of Argyll in Scotland and there is so much of it we are yet to discover. I do, however, have serious wanderlust and can’t wait to explore new & exciting parts of the world with my two little adventurers. We have many plans for future travels including everything from skiing holidays & ice hotels to family cruises & glamping. I’m also fond of the odd solo trip; Mama needs a break every now and then!

self-love | running | mental health

I’m a big advocate of self-love and of taking the time to nourish yourself both physically & mentally. Whether that’s through body-positive thinking, discussing mental health issues or taking time out on a yoga retreat. You are most definitely worth it!

And if you’re a runner then make sure you follow @adele.running.scotland for all my running updates and chat.
