I definitely felt festive walking around in this ensemble today! I'm a big fan of red tartan prints at the moment and I've been on the hunt for a good warm scarf. I originally purchased one from Zara which had a sort of ombré tartan effect but the scarf itself was way too large and I couldn't find a good style to wrap it around so ended up taking it back. I then found this little gem whilst shopping in Knightsbridge during the weekend and for a mere £7.99 it was a definite bargain. I paired it with this silk printed t-shirt which I got for £4 during a sample sale at French Connection and my disco pants which have been getting a lot of wear recently. I find they keep me much warmer than my usual AA leggings and they do a good job at sucking you in as well so sometimes I think they look more flattering.

During the weekend I also purchased this bowler style hat which is very unlike me. I'm not really a 'hat' person for two reasons. 1 - I like wearing my hair up 99% of the time and 2 - I have quite a round face shape so many hats don't really suit me. I randomly tried this on whilst in the shops and my boyfriend reckoned it really suited me, I wasn't sure to begin with but now I really like it. It adds a little something extra to a casual outfit and is a good look for the Autumn/ Winter season. However, wearing my hat around the tube stations was not a wise idea, I forgot how windy the tunnels are so spent most of the time holding onto it for dear life!
