The gold plated legs of my rival


 (Tartan snood: ASOS, Tweed jacket: Zara, Stripe tee: Forever21, Gold skirt: Topshop, Animal badge: Etsy, Wellies: Hunter)

Happy New Years and Merry Christmas... sorry I was so absent over the festive period. I was employed as the in-house chef, I cooked Christmas dinner and New year nibbles so I spent a lot of time in the kitchen or with my sister/ cats. Interchangeable. But now I am back at University writing my dissertation so there aren't any more distractions...

This was what I wore for a walk. Yup. You'd think it was impractical, a short gold silk skirt, thinnish jacket and a scarf thrown on for good measure, but let me tell you, my walking companions were asking me for help over rocks and through water. So who cares that everyone else had walking boots and waterproofs, my outfit was the best for the conditions and for that I am proud. We went for our walk in the highlands, in an area which is particularly glaciated. I loved geography and rambled on about kettle holes and moraine for a bit too long. My former geography teacher would be proud, no eskers or drumlins though.

This badge... pretty great right?! There are animals all over the world. It was a bargain from Etsy and I am pretty sure it was £3 or something. To be honest I was surprised when it arrived and turned out to be so nice. Not really a broach kinda gal, they can be a bit naff unless you are Prof. Umbridge and you can rock the kitty broach. But hey, I like this one, maybe I am a convert!!

I hope you all had a lovely festive season! What did y'all get up to?

With love from,

Emma x

    1. Beka... I honestly don't know... It's a nikon, and it's black???? It is a pretty old SLR. I can try and find out if you'd like, it must say on it somewhere right? I edit my photos so that might be it, all in an attempt to make my hair look less frizzy!! (Worst answer ever... sorry!)

    1. Aw Charlotte, shall we start a "new-brooches-convert club"? We might have to think of a more catchy name mind...!
