I think this is my first outfit that actually looks like I’m somewhere cold, despite it being cold and winter here in the UK for quite a while. This is the outfit I chose to wear for our day trip into the Scottish Highlands. I know a short dress and tights might not seem like a great choice but trust me I was plenty toasty enough with my fleece lined tights and 120 denier tights over the top. I really like this jumper and don’t wear it nearly enough, when I bought it I was expecting it to be a large sweatshirt style jumper but it’s much more fitted which I like.
A lot of people comment on my mittens being on string (including a lovely man in the Edinburgh Lush store that used it to start a conversation that progressed into his recommendations of holidays) and I do feel like a child sometimes but it’s just so darn handy to never worry about losing them! I strongly recommend everyone acquiring mittens on string or indeed just attaching string to the ones you already have!
