We looked like Giants

(Angora Jumper: Nowhere at Nelly, Leather skirt: Topshop, Plaid Coat: ASOS, Platforms: Marni x H&M, Bag: Mulberry, Pasta earrings: DIY, Pearl necklace: thrifted, Pink stone necklace: River Island) # teenvogue

This small, unimposing structure is the Wallace Monument in Stirling.  I actually wrote an essay about it once, if I remember correctly the plans used to build it were found in a bin... Fun Fact. It is worth a visit if you are in the area, I actually prefer it to Stirling castle as they have taken out all the original furnishings, so every room is just a shell with an awkward candelabra with fake fire. You can go inside the monument but heights aren't my friend.

I got this jumper from Nelly, and it was my first purchase from them. I really enjoy this jumper and its little frontal cut-outs. As always, as it is angora it is mighty itchy. I also recently rediscovered this coat, it isn't the most flattering but it is warm and goes with pretty much everything.

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I handed in my dissertation this week and then the day after contracted a cold, so my weekend of freedom has deteriorated into watching Mad Men and feeling sorry for myself. Colds do not help me and my tissue phobia. Weird I know.

With love from,
