Outfit | Leather and plaid
It was my birthday yesterday (It’s OK, you don’t have to say anything: I’m not a Birthday Person) (A Birthday Person is a person made entirely from cake, streamers and greeting cards, by the way. They’re a bit like Christmas People, only scarier, on account of all the candles…), and, much to my surprise, it also coincided with the first day of spring – or the first day that felt like spring, anyway.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, I know actual spring is yet to arrive (March 20th, for those of you wanting to put it in your diaries), and there’s still every chance of snow, or gale-force winds at the very least, but the sun was actually warm on my skin while we were were taking these photos, and I know you probably won’t believe me, but if I’d been walking fast, say, rather than standing in the middle of the road posing, I might even have been tempted to take off my jacket. No, really. I don’t always want to take off my jacket in the summer, let alone on my birthday, so this was a special day indeed. I mean, I know I said Scotland isn’t quite as cold as people think, but it’s not normally that warm, either, so I have no idea what’s going on. Probably the apocalypse.
Anyway, I decided to celebrate by abandoning the winter coats and opaque tights I’ve been living in lately with a more spring-like leather jacket and nude fishnets. And also the same damn shoes I’ve been wearing in almost every outfit photo post lately. I keep on telling myself I should branch out, and wear something else, if only to justify the existence of all of the other shoes in my life, but then I always just shrug my shoulders and reach for these ones again.Um, at least I’m getting my money’s worth? Or something?
