CASUAL FRIDAY'S

Hey guys how are you all on this fine friday? Have any plans? If so, let me know in the comment box down below! Today has been miserable, we have definitely hit the winter now in Scotland. Well, saying that we are still getting the odd cheeky sunny day. But even then, our "cold days" are very quickly becoming full blown winter days. Which is what today was. I woke up to the sound of heavy rain hitting against our bedroom window, which was a little disheartening. We had a lovely sunny day yesterday and i went to bed with the plans of getting some outfit photos for the blog today. I did expect the weather to be alright just because of yesterday but i really should remember this is Scotland! The weather can do anything on any day. Never trust the forecast here, just always assume you are getting to get all four seasons in one day. Although, since i am here writing (or have now written since you are reading this) it means the weather did perk up a little bit this afternoon, thus resulting in an outfit post! Yaay! 

In fact the weather went lovely this afternoon, you know when its mid-afternoon to evening time? And the evening light/sun has gone a gorgeous kind of golden? My favourite type of lighting to shoot in personally. It did go back to being greyish, but like i said we live in a "four seasons a day" country. I'd rather still get that little snippet of sunshine everyday even if its only for two minutes, better than nothing! Its just even worse when we hit the autumn/winter months. Oh well. You have to work with what you are given!

OUTFIT DETAILS
Since i woke up to a miserable day, i just wanted comfort and to be wrapped up in layers! I had started to put another outfit on but like i said all i wanted was comfort today. The other outfit really wasn't a "winter comfort" type of look. So i kept with this shirt and decided to match my oxblood docs with my trusty, always go to green skinny jeans. I then decided to add another layer with my cardigan, which matched the burgundy i was wearing as well as keeping with the earthy/toned down colours. I don't really wear another layer under my coats as i get too hot too easily. But i just felt like layering up today and it really has gotten colder recently. I also really feel my hat and coat turned this "casual" outfit into something a bit more chic. To be honest with you all, this is kind of my scruffy can't be bothered to try hard outfits. Skinny jeans and Dr martens are pretty casual, so if you do want to add something a bit more to your outfit think about what else you can/are going to add to change the look. Hence my oversized coat and hat!
