It’s damn cold in Scotland. I keep saying I’m still acclimatising after living abroad, but it was below freezing point the other morning, so I’m not just imagining it! It can be quite easy for me to revert to jeans and hoodies, and anything big and warm, but I also like playing around with layers again, after living somewhere warm for so long. This dress is pretty short and lightweight, but the dark colours and floral print feel appropriate for these dark winter months (seriously, it’s black outside by 5pm). And I’ve bundled up for the cold in this big, chunky cardigan, and these thick woollen tights. I managed to rip them the first time I wore them though, on boot zippers, but it’s covered by these tall, practical boots. I also pulled out some jewellery I haven’t worn in forever – the earrings are some bright fun in an otherwise dark outfit, and the pendant is a reminder of travels in warmer climes.
