I am checking in because I am sentimental.
A quick chat about a trip down memory lane and a small addition to my wardrobe; seems about right for this time of the year.
My school uniform was Black Watch tartan accessorised with a white blouse and opaque black tights in winter. Actually it wasn’t all bad and especially back in those days when the legs were for showing and we hiked the skirt up as high as we could get away with.
Fast-forward several (that’s being kind read many) decades and a trip to Edinburgh sparked a walk down the tartan memory lane. I found a Black Watch cashmere scarf and had that warm and fuzzy nostalgic feeling.
Yes, I am a fan of the tartan trousers.
I am wearing them with a very simple black sweater and mules or boots depending on the day. They are flattering; it must be the cross checking pattern and they make a great change from the black pants and jeans. They also work dressed up with heels and a tailored blazer or jacket.
I don’t feel Scottish and nor do I feel like a schoolgirl, more is the pity, but I really, really do love the tartan. xv
