Been getting into winter city walks post work and the leather leggings have been enjoying some amount of airtime. I knew they were not bound for the back of the closet (or worse, under the bed – no coming back from there) but I hadn’t predicted that I’d want to live in them. So the conundrum is this: if the leather leggings are dry clean only, but are in fact only half leather, then how does one wash the jersey half to prevent bagging? DoG forbid I’d have to stop wearing them quite so much…
Also, this scarf is so ridiculously soft that the husband caught me in a tender caress with it. Full on, stroking my face with it, fabric softener TV ad style. That was awkward.

Those kind of weekends that only Scotland can give you… When it rains rains rains and you just don’t care. When you drink hot chocolates in front of the fire to dry your toes. When you accidentally take the long loop walk instead of the short and do 5 miles and you don’t pass another soul. When you run across the decking in your swimsuit and boots to jump in the hot tub (in the rain rain rain). When you eat a 6 course dinner and don’t care about your food baby. When you stay up late laughing and wake up late with puppy cuddles in bed. When you take time out…

Speaking of 6 course dinners and over indulging… seems perfect timing to have begun the Highland Spring Pre-tox – looking forward to discovering the effects of swapping G&T’s for these for a couple weeks!
Certainly this will be a shock to many of you but, yes, I am wearing a tartan scarf again. And you know what? I got even more where that came from, just you wait…
Also, these jeans, I love them but I would advise ordering down a size than normal. I need to either wash them at 1000 degrees or eat all the Christmas sweets to make them fit perfectly – which one of those two options seems more likely? But they are tuxedo style and distressed so they really do tick a lot of denim boxes.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend – can’t wait to share some of mine tomorrow although, as I read recently, it does often feel as if there is a day missing between Saturday and Sunday. Not just me surely?

Hello Friday! Wow, what a week… but we made it.
Just one of my everyday work looks today – my winter uniform of tartan scarf (I can’t get enough – maybe because I am Scottish?), toasty tops, boyfriend jeans and heels. Simples. (Now and again the husband likes to amend my ‘typos’ for me when I’m not looking and, planning ahead, husband, it says ‘simples’ because of the meerkat, not to be amended to ‘simple’ thank you very much. Love you).
Well, the heels are staying at home this weekend whilst we three roadtrip up North – planning a weekend of friends, hot chocolates, maybe even hot tubs, long dog walks and long lies.
Have a great weekend and thanks so much for reading.x
