I have managed to get a couple of tartan items in my wardrobe this season! I can never be bothered to follow trends but I do love a bit of tartan! I’ve layered this red tartan top from Red or Dead with an old peter pan collar top from Topshop (and a very unglamorous thermal vest!) and then completed the look with the black neck tie. I add that ribbon tie to almost everything I wear, as you may have noticed already! The white collar top underneath is old but I love wearing it with short tops because as well as covering and keeping my midriff warm, the pretty anglaise broderie peeps out at the hem.
I couldn’t wait to wear my new Hunter wellies
which I’ve had for about three weeks now, so as soon as we decided to go for a countryside walk, I knew what footwear I was wearing with the outfit! I love the colour of them, they are an aubergine purple with glossy shine, and they’re adjustable around the calves. When they arrived through the post, I wanted to wear them straight away but as it was only spitting, I didn’t want to seem too keen. I think I’ll have to buy some of those fleecy socks to go with it because they’re a tad too big, and they rubs on my feet and gives me blisters. Wellies are a must-have for british winters, not just for the snow but for when the fields get so wet and yucky. As I live in the rural part of the country (boggy fields!), I’ve got a couple of pairs of wellies but nothing quite as fancy as Hunter. Hopefully, this pair will last much longer than the ones I’ve had in the past!
There is an outfit video to accompany this post but I went to Leeds today to visit the Christmas market, and have only just got back so haven’t had the chance to put it on to YouTube
and retrieve the link to embed the video here! I have already edited the video, it didn’t take me long but I’ll put it on the blog as soon as I’ve worked out what to do on the YouTube side of things! x
