What I Wore: Warm & Cosy

Friday, January 18, 2013


For me, January tends to mean lots of chunky knits, cups of tea and some good books. This outfit brings together a couple of these things. In an attempt to be slightly more creative with the location of my photos I dragged my long suffering boyfriend and the dogs into Edinburgh's Old Town and took these near the Writer's Museum. Of course, being more exciting with my photos also means looking like even more of an ass as even more people see my awkward posing, but it was fun to go somewhere different. I've got loads of  plans for different places I can try out in the next year - it'll be like I'm a tourist in my own city. 

The weather has been bitterly cold here for the past few days, and I've found myself drawn to warm colours to counter act it (because obviously colour is more important than layers!) so lots of oranges, burgundy and browns. This outfit ticked all the right boxes, even if I was absolutely freezing when I took my coat off to take these photos. 

I want to thank you all for your amazing comments on my last post, I've read them so many times, and I've been trying to come up with responses for all of you, but I've just been so overwhelmed by how wonderful you all are. As soon as I posted it I ran away from the computer and couldn't face checking my emails for about 6 hours, silly, I know, but healthier than sitting at the computer waiting for a response. 

Anyway, it is a lovely day (despite being promised snow) so I'm going to go make the most of it. Lots of love to you all.
