Tartan Leggings

I very nearly didn't post this. I'm getting really fed up of my outfit posts lately. Maybe it's the location,(my garden isn't the most exciting of places) or the fact that I'm not the most comfortable in front of a camera, but something isn't working. Despite this, I really really like these leggings and felt it very important that I share them.

Speaking of leggings, I think I have a problem. A few years ago, if you'd have asked me to wear a pair of leggings, I'd have laughed in your face. I used to despise them, especially if they weren't worn with a long enough top. Two years later and I can't get enough of them. Super cosy (always top on my list of priorities) and can be worn with a wide variety of jumpers. I now own around 5 or 6 pairs and love them all equally. This lovely pair is from Topshop and I think we're going to be very good friends. I've also fallen a little in love with this beautiful necklace from Ever Ours. I bought two others but this one is definitely my favourite. 

I'm planning on putting together a recent purchases/haul type post. I've bought a few nice bits recently and want to get round to sharing them with you. Problem is I really dislike trying to photograph clothes. It would all be good if I was willing to foray into youtube, so much easier but so much scarier. Not quite sure I see it happening any time soon.

If there's a few things I've learnt from this outfit post it that: 1. I need to figure out something new do to with my hair. 2. The word coatigan really does make me cringe and 3. My obsession with checks/tartan is getting as out of hand as my obsession with florals circa 2009. Believe me, it was bad.

Despite all these things, this beautiful checked beauty is definitely a new favourite addition to my wardrobe. It's definitely not thick enough to keep me warm once the real cold sets in. For now though, paired with a nice chunky scarf, it is perfect.

Now need to go and warm myself up with a nice cup of tea and a pack of magic stars, which have been calling me for a good hour now.

Jumper -Topshop
Skirt - Topshop

Some people look fantastic in leather, I've never though myself to be one of those people. However, when I spotted this skirt in Topshop, I fell in love. It may be current penchant for tartan (there's another outfit post in the pipeline featuring it, whoops) but something about this skirt was calling me.

I went home empty handed, but found myself on the website for the next few days wishing I'd picked it up. So, this morning, I rushed out to Topshop and finally bought it home. As you can see in the pictures, this one is the tiniest bit too tight, I can never win with Topshop sizing. Sadly the size up was massive and I needed it, so it's just incentive to possibly maybe get back to the gym at some point. 

I've got a couple of things to do before I have to rush off and catch my coach to London. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
