This outfit features pretty much all of the pieces I’ve been wearing most frequently over the past few weeks. An autumn uniform, if you will. Stripes make an appearance in my outfits a good 50% of the time, and these black skinnies from Hobbs are still the best skinnies I’ve ever owned, hands down. But that Olivia Burton beauty? Well, that’s new in my wardrobe. I’ve been wearing the same two watches on rotation for a good few years now- a delicate silver D&G watch I was given by my Godparents for my 21st birthday, and a rather battered old one that once belonged to my Grandad. But then the lovely team behind The Watch Hut got in touch a few weeks ago to see if I might like to try a new watch on for size, and that’s the story of how that gold, white and tan beauty wound up strapped to my wrist! I’m very grateful for it, not least because the face has actual numbers on it which makes it oh so easy to tell time from! I’ve been wearing it pretty much non-stop ever since it arrived (it goes with *everything*!) and now would most definitely consider myself an Olivia Burton disciple.
And now, let’s talk tartan. I’m going to say it now- this is the best scarf I’ve ever owned. It’s giant (basically a picnic blanket masquerading as a scarf), 100 times softer than I expected it to be when I spotted it online, and…it was twenty pounds. TWENTY! It’s so amazing that I just know I’ll be one of approximately fifty billion women and girls wearing it this autumn and winter, but you know what? It’s worth it. There’s nothing better than being able to bury down into a huge, plush scarf on chilly days, and I think this one is going to get a whole lot of airtime this autumn and winter.
