Outfit: Layering Up At Temple Newsam

Since moving to Leeds we've been trying to get out and explore our surroundings as much as possible, especially before it gets colder & (I hate to say it) the snow comes - because it's pretty much inevitable. Okay so that's a huge over reaction, but i bet it won't be far off! On Tuesday last week me & Dan ventured up to Temple Newsam, which is about a 20 minute drive from our new home. It plays host to the festival 'Cocoon In The Park' once a year; Dan's been on a few occasions but today we thought we'd go check it out in it's usual every day state.

As mentioned in my last post I'm just getting over that horrible sniffly snotty cold so I thought instead of going out in palazzo pants & a cami (which I'd much rather have been able to do) I'd better play it safe and wrap up in this thick cosy scarf & trench.
I was given this scarf last year as a Christmas present from my lovely friend Marilyn and it's getting to that time of year again where it needs to be brought back out the closet. I love the checked print & think it'll be really big this Autumn/Winter, again, mostly in the traditional tartan red of course, but it's nice to be a little bit different - And who doesn't love monochrome?
I've layered my outfit with my trusty beige inbetweeny trench, I've been loving this trend & this coat has literally not left my back - It's super easy to wear and super versataille! I'm also wearing my equally trusty Miss Selfridge leather skinny jeans with a green knitted Topshop top I picked up in the sale a few months ago. I refound these Chelsea boots not long ago after 'loosing' them for a few years. If loosing means chucking to the back of your wardrobe and forgetting about them - Oops. It's quite sad (and a bit bratty) that I've actually got that much stuff that I forget about things, but that feeling of rediscovering a hidden gem is awesome!

How have you been transitioning into your Autumn/Winter wardrobe?

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
