You guys, it's finally scarf weather. This might seem like a strange thing to say as it's nearly half way through November already, but the last few weeks have been unseasonably mild. But never fear, winter has well and truly arrived and there's currently a howling gale and lashing rain outside. FUN. Anyway, I wore this outfit at the weekend to go to Tribeca for some birthday pancakes (I'm 25 now sobbbbb) and stopped off at the Bruntsfield Links opposite to frolic amongst the falling leaves and take some photos.

Tu Clothing (who you might recognise if you ever venture into the clothing department of your local Sainsbury's) recently launched their online shop, and I was really excited when they asked if I would like to become part of their Tu fashion blogger community - and even more excited when they let me go on a little shopping spree on their brand new website! As well as some winter basics like cosy jumpers and and pyjama bottoms (seriously, these Striped Jersey Bottoms are my favourite thing right now) I picked up a couple of accessories which are a wee bit out of my comfort zone. I really like fedora hats on other people, but I'm just not sure if I'm quite cool enough to pull them off... but I kind of love it anyway. I have discovered, however, that hats and windy Edinburgh do not mix well so perhaps this wasn't the most practical of winter purchases! The shoes are much more practical though, and pretty stylish if I do say so myself. They're really comfy and great to chuck on with a pair of jeans.

The rest of the outfit is very simple with a slouchy black jumper, black skinny jeans, black leather jacket and, shock horror, a black and white scarf! I'm all about the all-black outfits with a pop of colour or pattern, and this houndstooth scarf from Primark fits the bill nicely. It's so big and cosy and I kind of want to wear it as a blanket. I finished things off with one of my old favourite necklaces, a crescent moon from the lovely Ginger Pickle and hey presto - Saturday afternoon outfit sorted.

Are you a hat person? How would you style a fedora?

  2. I consider myself THEE hat person! Hats are the best. Your eyesbrows are always ridiculously amazing. So jealous.


  3. The fedora looks so cute on you lady. Great pick! NYC has been quite windy too recently, so I've had to hold onto my hat quite a lot so I don't need to chase it down the street. Happy belated birthday too! xx
