Brora Long Cashmere Gloves 3

So this morning we saw the first snow of the year. It transformed from big, damp flakes on my windshield to an almost complete whiteout in the space of a workout, so the drive home felt more than a little perilous. So, now that I feel we’re in the midst of real winter, I thought it would be a great excuse to share one of my favourite finds – Brora’s stunning Cashmere Long Fingerless Gloves.

Brora Long Cashmere Gloves

The gloves are made of the softest two-ply Scottish cashmere, and they dreamy soft! On cold, wet days like today, they are just what your want to pull on to feel as snug as possible.

The fact that they’re fingerless is absolutely perfect for me! It’s a pretty widely known fact among my friends that I’m a bit of a klutz, so not having to whip the gloves off every time I need to send a text or an email feels like an absolute godsend!

The cashmere is just the softest you can imagine, and they are so warm and cosy, they are just a dream to wear! The long arm length is super flattering (not to mention cozy) too! Since I tend to rotate through a wardrobe of neutrals, the pop of colour feels super fun, and I like to wear them slouched down over my wrists under blazers and coats.

Brora’s Cashmere Long Fingerless Gloves are priced at £59 and are available here

 

Brora Icelandic Mohair Sweater 1

Now that we’re finally in November, I feel like I’m squarely in ‘sweater weather,’ and to be honest, I’m pretty happy about it! When the weather is as pretty as it is right now, getting to spend days outside in golden sunshine feels pretty wonderful! Since autumn is usually pretty short lived up in Scotland, I’ve decided to make the most out of every second of it!

My sweater of choice on these sunny, but still rather cold days has been Brora’s stunning Mohair Icelandic Jumper. It’s not like anything else in my wardrobe, and it feels just perfect to wear right now. I’ve been wearing it mostly over my J. Crew keeper shirt and jeans for a cosy outfit which still looks pulled together!

I’m just obsessed with the colours in the sweater – the soft, icy grey with the touches of sky blue just look so perfect against the increasingly wintery skies, and I can’t even begin to tell you how cosy it is! Made out of a super kid mohair blend, the jumper is the perfect mix of comfy, cute and I absolutely adore the hint of fluff it has!

The Mohair Icelandic Jumper is such a work-horse of a sweater, I have absolutely fallen in love with it! I can’t even tell you how many compliments I’ve received wearing it!

Brora’s Mohair Icelandic Jumper is priced at £119 and it is available here

Thank you so much Brora for lending me the jumper!

Harvey Nichols - The Art of Style

If you’re from Edinburgh, you’ll know how glorious Tuesday was. It was the perfect Autumn evening – all golden light and cool breezes, and it was an absolute joy to walk down George Street to Harvey Nichols to attend their Art of Style Trend Presentation.

Nestled in the middle of all of this season’s most beautiful clothes, I got to attend the most fabulous panel discussion which focused on the links between art and fashion (i.e. my main two loves)! As an Art History major, I can seriously geek out over the tiniest brushstroke or fabric pattern, so the evening was a must for me!

Harvey Nichols - The Art of Style 4

Designed as the pinnacle of Harvey Nichols’ The Art of Style calendar, the panel of speakers was really something special – the iconic Molly Parkin, Harvey Nichols’ Buying Partner Darren Skey, Project Director of Fashion at Edinburgh College of Art Mal Burkinshaw along with Anne Lyden the Curator of Photography at National Galleries of Scotland.

Discussions ranged from Molly Parkins’ rather unorthodox childhood in a Welsh mining town to the technicalities faced by fashion buyers, as well as the on-going David Bailey exhibition currently showing at the National Portrait Gallery not to mention the burgeoning number of students currently flooding fashion schools. We even got a glimpse of Molly’s technicolor do!

The conversation flowed freely for over an hour, and the chance to ask such a distinguished panel questions was a real thrill! I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I could have easily sat listening to everyone chat for hours, and once the panel had concluded, there was a chance to chat to everyone, resulting in the most interesting discussions which were wonderfully plied by the free flowing prosecco (Harvey Nichols’ own is absolutely delicious I have to say!) Chatting with both Molly and Anne was really incredible, and I’ve already arranged a trip with friends to visit the David Bailey Stardust exhibition next week (it’s on until the 18th of October).

Thank you so much to Harvey Nichols for inviting me to this event.

Aspinal Travel Collection

If you follow me on Instagram (you can find me here) you’ll know that a couple of weeks ago, Harvey Nichols Edinburgh kindly invited me to an event being hosted with Aspinal of London.

Aspinal of London Monogram

Aspinal of London personalisation

Positioned right in the centre of the swoon-worthy accessories department, Aspinal of London had set up a seriously old school monogram press, which meant that anything purchased could be personalised to your heart’s content. The selection of leather goods from Aspinal was truly the stuff of dreams – neon pouches, sleek clutches and the most glamorous of totes were all crying out for a little bit of initialing, so when I was handed a rather sleek box, I’m not ashamed to admit that I squealed more than a little bit!

Aspinal of London Travel Collection

Tucked inside was the chicest of collections – Aspinal of London’s Burgundy Red Travel Collection. I cannot tell you how long I have lusted after this selection of goodies! Every time I’ve stepped foot inside an airport I’ve promised myself that I’m going to treat myself to an Aspinal of London travel wallet – they are just the epitome of glamorous travel (not to mention being incredibly useful) and I’ve never gotten around to choosing one. So, you can imagine how excited I was to get my paws on the entire travel collection! Safe to say I can’t wait to book up somewhere terribly exotic to christen the set!

Aspinal of London Travel Collection Travel Wallet monogram

Crafted out of the finest Italian Saffino calf leather, the Travel Collection comprises of a Classic Travel Wallet, Passport Cover and two luggage tags (one for hand luggage and one for checked) and is available in a veritable rainbow of shades. Mine, burgundy is a new shade for Aspinal, and it’s also my favourite!

Aspinal of London Travel Wallet

The Classic Travel Wallet is everything you want and need when you’re travelling. Whenever I travel I tend to get super paranoid about losing tickets and passports, so to have everything in one terribly good looking package is an absolute dream!

Inside the Travel Wallet, there’s a place for everything! From a zippered compartment for coins, to a slot for your boarding passes, tickets and passport, it means that fumbling around at passport control is a thing of the past!

The interior of the Travel Wallet is trimmed in stunning blue suede. It’s buttery soft, and it adds the most beautiful pop of colour to the wallet.

Aspinal of London Travel Collection Passport Holder

I was so happy to see the Passport Cover tucked into my box – my passport has definitely seen better days, so to get a super sleek cover like this one is the stuff of dreams. In addition to the gorgeous Saffino leather, the Passport Cover has reinforced corners so it stays looking pristine no matter what adventures you get into!

Once again, the Passport Cover is lined in gorgeous blue suede, and comes complete with a navy twill ribbon which acts as a page saver for whatever stamps and visas you need to keep out.

Aspinal of London Travel Collection Luggage Tags

The duo of luggage labels is just adorable. The two sizes means that one is perfect for hand luggage, whilst the other can be used on checked bags. I absolutely adore how the gold monogram shines out from the burgundy Saffino leather – it feels super grown up and glamorous, and it means I can easily identify my bag when it comes off the plane!

Both luggage labels have little flaps which cover your name and address details, and again, the conners are reinforced with brass corners to make sure they hold up through even the most vigorous of baggage handlers.

Thank you so much to Harvey Nichols Edinburgh and Aspinal of London for the beautiful Travel Collection!
