Tartan around

Tartan is everywhere right now.  But we really just want to have a touch of the tartan don’t we?  I mean, this look isn’t the aim, is it?!

Again, this is what too much tartan looks like (outfit owned and worn by the Duke of Windsor).  Sometimes less really is more.

As mentioned in a recent blog post, I bought this Morgan & Oates tartan scarf from a charity shop the other week.  I am delighted with it, although its bigger than Ben Hur, so dominates my outfit.  That’s OK, its so good, I am happy for it to take centre stage.  Here I am wearing it with a Mango sequin fronted jumper, Zara super skinny jeans and Sam Edelman Adena slippers.

And today I wore tartan again: Mango black and grey wool mix jacket  |  Primark black cotton long sleeved top  |  Tartan skirt from a vintage shop in NYC (a long time ago)  |  black opaques and Kurt Geiger Willow ankle boots

Now, if you fancy a cute tartan shirt, may I point you in the direction of this one from New Look (£18)?  Its nice, but it didn’t work for me (I just don’t suit that sort of shirt for some reason), but its worth showing you in case it works for you.

Real life close up (then my phone died.  Quite annoying)
