Packing for Scotland.

Heya, hope you're well.

This weekend I'm excited to be flying to Edinburgh to watch the Rugby match between Scotland and Italy, it's going to be lively match I'm sure, although I know England have already won the Six Nations! (having won all their games so far).
There'll be plenty of eating, drinking, laughing and shopping too!  But shush - don't tell hubby about the last one. Ha ha! Hopefully a bit of Haggis on the menu, along with a wee dram of the local brew - when in Rome etc etc!! Lol.

Remember my previous Cheeky Night Away, and my lack of colour?  Well this is what I'm planning on taking this time, enough colour do you think?

Jeans - Two pairs
New dress  - Mustard
M & S Dress 
Jumper pink
Jumper white
Blouse pink
Boots Grey
Shoes Black
Scarf x 2
Cream shimmery baseball trainers.
Pink jacket or blue coat.
Two T shirts coloured.

You can see I'm aiming for pink, grey and black for casual day wear, with a splash of colour for one evening, but I will admit I'm taking my black and gold dress, neutral I know so lets just see how this pans out. 

Here's hoping this has me looking and feeling better in the fashion stakes!

Fingers crossed I can get all this in my cabin bag as I'm not sure we've booked a case in then hold - bad move!

Swiftly moving onto what I wore today. 
Winter 'off' whites for a beautiful Spring day,  starting with this pretty scarf I bought last week in Primark.
Drawn towards the cute coral pink flowers over the white background made me think of blossom on the trees.  I've worn this over a white jumper I picked up in Matalan.  I know this will be a favourite of mine through out the coming months - It'll go with so many different styled tops and will also be a super cover up on a chilly Spring/Summer evening.
Wearing my chinos today, although I'm still not happy with the fit!  I bought a larger size, but the material has stretched whilst being worn.  I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place because the smaller size fitted too tightly.  Being very structured I don't think they could be altered at all - so I'll make do with wearing once and then washing - not very eco friendly I'm afraid!

 How sweet is this scarf?  From Primark for only £4 - isn't it gorgeous!

Check back next week to see how my weekend faired, who won the rugby??? lol, and what I got up to in bonnie Scotland.

So I'll be seeing you Monday. X
