Tartan and Denim | Cold Weather Spring Outfit

Tartan Dress, DMs and a Denim Jacket | Cold Weather Spring Outfit

This tartan dress is proving to be more of a versatile piece than I thought it was going to be.

Even though it's a very distinctive item... no blending into the background here!... I've worn it a few times already, and it seems to make a different statement each time.

See it styled with leopard boots HERE.

I'm also keen for the weather to warm up a little and I'll be trying it without the need for thermal underlayers!

This time it's the turn of some sensible DMs and a denim jacket for a day out in Glasgow.
I needed something that could take me into town for a few beers, an early dinner and a visit to the RSNO (Royal Scottish National Orchestra) for a wonderful show.

(All thanks to my beautiful friend who was treating me for my birthday... I'm a lucky lady for sure!)

An outfit like this is great because the dress is dressed up enough for the show and the jacket is casual enough to tone everything down during the day.
I could have worn heels to up the style ante a little but my pragmatic head was on.
I needed comfort... and warmth.

A dress and a denim jacket, what a classic combination!
Nothing could be easier to throw together than this look.

{BTW... It was chilly and sunny at home but FREEZING and drizzly in Glasgow... Chitter!
Luckily I was packing a big cashmere wrap in my bigger bag because I really needed it.}

  1. I absolutely ADORE this tartan dress. The fact that it looks like a two-piece makes it even more special. The accessorising is spot-on for me, too; I can see myself wearing this dress and styling it exactly how you've styled it here, with the denim jacket and the boots.

    It sounds like you and this outfit had a glorious, fun yet chill day out =D

  5. This dress is awesome - I loved it when you styled it with the leopard print boots and think this is another great bit of styling. This dress can do no wrong in my eyes and I can't wait to see its next reincarnation. Happy birthday BTW - sounds like you had a fab day out, hurrah! xxxx
