A Tartan Scarf, Some Reindeer and Christmas Lights!

In a previous post I told you that I was a bit afraid of tartan. This is just based on the fact that I didn't (and still don't really) know how to style it. As you probably all know, tartan is a HUGE trend this season so I wanted to try to incorporate a little tartan into my style (especially because I'm Scottish). I decided to go for a tartan scarf which, I think, is a pretty good place to start. I'm going to show you the outfit I wore with the scarf and I would love to know how you style tartan too so please do let me know!
As you can see I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit very plain and simple so that the tartan scarf would stand out and above all, not clash with anything. 

What I'm wearing  
Fine knit neutral coloured jumper
Black skinny jeans
Black boots with cut outs
Tartan Scarf

When I went out in this outfit I just added a black leather jacket and some gloves. I honestly was quite happy with the look and didn't find the tartan overpowering.

I also wanted to put a little extra bit in this post so I hope you don't mind. Recently the Christmas lights were being switched on in my little city and it is literally the busiest the town centre ever is. There is always a little stage with different things going on, loads of Christmassy stalls, live reindeer, a tea cups ride and best of all - a huge Christmas tree right in the middle of it all. Here's a few pictures for you to gaze upon.


They obviously aren't the best pictures in the world but the lighting wasn't great and I only had my phone. I also bought some Christmassy things while I was waiting for the lights to be switched on. An adorable gingerbread man soft toy and a Christmas bauble with my name on it (I rarely see my name on things).

Anyway, thank you so much for reading and have a lovely day!
