I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter…

Saturday was one of those perfect winter days. The air was crisp, no sign of rain & cold enough to wrap up without fear of freezing your arse off. So, when my sister suggested taking her lovely Seb for a walk I jumped at the chance. I have actually been missing the Sebster, so it was nice to get a look at his handsome face. We decided to head to Pollok Country Park, which is an amazing piece of country right in th middle of the city. It’s also home to the Burrell Collection, a herd of highland cattle,Maxwell house as well as dozens of woodland walks. In short it was perfect for Seb to roam free & for us to get some cool blog photos.

This is a new look for me. I’ve always been very self conscious about leggings & worn with either skirts or tunics. This skeleton pair are crying out to have all their bones exposed, so I stepped out of my comfort zone. I mostly wanted to be comfortable and cosy for our walk. With this in mind I teemed the leggings with my Ghostbusters t-shirt (a childhood fav), layered cardigans & a scarf. My trusty sparkly boots stood me in good stead in the mucky park.

I have to say I am chuffed with these pictures. I am loving this fun casual look so much that I may well invest in some more statement leggings.

For the sake of auld lang syne…

I’ve never written about fashion (or fatshion if you prefer) before, but I have been writing for a very long time. I certainly have no problem expressing myself through my clothes, so with a little bit of luck I should be able to find my style voice too.
I’m kicking off with the outfit I wore on New Year’s Eve, mainly because I felt bloody good that night. Tartan seemed appropriate for Hogmanay with the faux (veggie safe) leather adding a smidgeon of sex appeal. I wore it with some sneaky support leggings, which look like thick tights, but do a marvellous job of smoothing your contours. The bonus with this dress & leggings are they are seriously comfortable meaning staying out all night was easy peasy.
