Seeing as I have always loved tartan, and own plenty of skirts, shirts and scarves printed with it, I really didn't need to make an effort to hop on the tartan trend. It seems to be everywhere at the moment, and this skirt fitted into my wardrobe nicely, although I'm not sure its the most flattering thing I own. I sometimes feel like if I actually stuck to what suited me, I'd look incredibly boring all the time, because there are not many styles that seem to flatter my pear shape! Sometimes its worth saying 'ahh, screw it,' and wearing what the hell you like. And thats what I did. Just repeat, Beyonce has a big bum, and people would pay for that, right? Eh-hum! 

Yes, I'm wearing sunglasses, it was so bright on Sunday! I never thought I'd say that I need sunglasses more now than any time in the summer. The 8-11am sun is unbearable, and even on the drive home, the glare from the low sun is almost worse than the high sun of summer! In stepped Vision Direct who offered me these lovely glasses (although they actually specialise in daysoft lenses), helping me to survive my drives with a bit of attitude - I really do think these are very Ooh La La, Breakfast at Tiffany's style glasses, so I'm won over! 

What do you think?
Are you into tartan?
