Sporty Tartan

Following on from my recent tartan orientated post 'Cobalt Tartan' where I brought to you my rather daring plaid trousers, I now give you a more understated take on the trend...

(These snaps were taken just before my boyfriend and I visited the Science Museum on a rather chilly day, as will soon become evident!)

If like I initially was, you're a little apprehensive about the trend, a scarf is a great way to experiment! Just whack it on and voila, your transformation into a fashionista is complete! If you want to take your awesomeness to a whole new level, team it with another on trend piece like I have. I mean, what's the only thing better than one fab piece of clothing!? TWO of course!

(Awkward shot no.1)

 A little too happy perhaps?
My boyfriend also rockin' the tartan scarf trick! Honestly, it really can  just jazz up about any outfit. And guys, take note too, you can also experiment with this trend!

My scarf was quite frankly ridiculously priced at a mere £4, from Primark, obviously...

As trends are often over before you realise they even exist, I find Primark a great place to purchase 'throwaway' or 'keep in your closet until it becomes fashionable again' pieces!

No outfit is complete without my fashion soul-mate, my one and only (or one of many) my Cambridge Satchel!

Okay, so... I made the brave decision to take off my layers despite the frostbite inducing cold to showcase to you all my chiffon baseball top. Generally, the sports luxe trend is confined to jazzed up trackie bottoms of some specification (and yes, I do own a pair myself). BUT, I think this top from H&M brings a new, fresh take on the trend that is greatly welcomed (by at least me anyway...)

HENCE THIS "OMG IT'S FREEZING" SNAP! No, I'm not trying to look all ' high fashion' and 'in motion', this picture really just was a badly timed snap of me moaning about how cold it was while wincing thanks to a massive gust of wind! Go with the former if it makes me seem cooler should you please though!

Me, giving a good old Elvis 'uh-huh-huh'! Can't you tell by the curl of my upper lip!? (Honestly don't know what happened here)
