I've never been a huge fan of tartan as it can so easily look tacky but this season everyone seems to be going wild for it! I've seen some lovely subtle pieces in Zara but they're pretty pricey for what they are. For the mean time, I've settled with my trusty H&M tartan scarf which I bought this time last year. It's absolutely huge and literally the cosiest thing ever so perfect for those chilly mornings like today. I've worn it with this Missguided knitted t-shirt which I actually think it meant to be a dress but it's ridiculously short. And that's coming from me standing at 5'4! I've paired it with my favourite Asos Ridley ripped jeans which I've been wearing non-stop over the past week. They're super comfortable and despite the draught coming through my knees, they are perfect for this season.

I've also got round to re-doing my nails at long last and went for one of my favourite all-year round shades - Essie 'Blanc'. This polish is the perfect crisp white shade for Winter and really lasts on my nails well. I've also used the No.7 Limited Edition Gold Glitter on an accent nail which I picked up during the Christmas period last year. It's so sparkly and eye-catching so felt I'd join in a little with the festive spirit. I'm also wearing Mac 'Dubonnet' lipstick which is the perfect shade of dark red that I spent searching for last year. It's part of the 'Amplified' collection so the colour is very pigmented and the finish has a slight sheen which is good as it prevents my lips from drying out.

  5. To be honest I'm not overly keen on the head-to-toe tartan look - I have a scarf too (mines just a cheap primark jobbie) which is a great way to update jeans & a tee when I'm having a lazy day. I love your Zara boots too!
