Funky Scottish Loves...


...layering with a gorgeous 'statement' scarf. 

It's the perfectly stylish way to keep away evening chills during a bbq or alfresco sundowner.
Have you been in our Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique recently?
If not, take a close-up peek at our latest collection of scarfs. xo


French Connections‬. Our Funky Alternative To The Football...


This summer, thanks to Euro 2016, it seems all eyes are on France! Even if you aren't a football fan, there are other reasons to pay attention to our continental cousins. Here are our Top 3...
1. Style. The French are renowned for their chic, understated fashion sense. Think classic 'Chanel' stripes and a flair for making a simple outfit suddenly glamorous using just a scarf! See our collections in the Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique and give your wardrobe a European twist!
2. Cafe Culture. We j'adore the continental approach to cafe culture here at Funky Scottish. So, we've fully embraced it with alfresco seating like the pavement cafes of Paris. It doesn't always have to be really sunny! Just wrap up in layers and warm up with your cafe au lait!
3. Relax A La Riviera. Inhabitants of quaint villages and coastal resorts in the South of France are expert at celebrating simple pleasures: slowing down, appreciating a good conversation, delicious food or the natural beauty of their surroundings. Their approach inspires us to do the same at home in Pittenweem. 
So, please join us! Step away from the sports channel, thrown on a pretty scarf, saunter down the street and idle away an afternoon in our Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique.
Bonne journée! xo

Oooh La La! Rivera Chic Sails Into Our Seaside Village…


Discover a gorgeous new collection from Club De Mer at the Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique, on the high street in ‪#‎Pittenweem‬!
Classic ‪#‎stripes‬ are a smart addition to your capsule wardrobe this spring/summer. Throw on with capri pants, cropped jeans or wide leg trousers for simple, elegant ‘‪#‎Chanel‬’ inspired style.
We adore this timeless design - a signature look for Audrey Hepburn and of course Mademoiselle Coco too. Audrey Tatou is pictured as the designer in the film ‘Coco', next to the off-duty woman herself.
See our full Club De Mer collection inside Funky Scottish. Finally, complete the look by slowing down for a continental-style illy coffee - taken al fresco - at our pavement ‪#‎cafe‬.
Now, where did we put our yacht….
