The Tartan Trend

So the weather might be turning sub-zero but until the last leaf has fallen from the last tree I am firmly flying the flag for Autumn. Orange leaves, country stomps and wrapping up in scarves are just some of the reasons I adore Autumn. And then there's the food: soups, stews, pies, crumble... but I digress. Like Spring, I think Autumn is the perfect time to give your home a quick makeover and add some cosy touches.

Tartan is back in a big way this season. No longer is it confined to punks and dodgy school uniform it is a trend that everyone can get involved and its slowly creeping in to my wardrobe and my home. Here are my top picks to keep on top of the trend, and not break the bank:

Lambswool tartan scarf from
Red and green check treggings from Topshop
Tweedmill red tartan blanket from Urban Outfitters
Sandhurst chaucer boot by Hunter
Welsh wool cushion from
Cooperative tartan cardigan from Urban Outfitters

And if you're still thinking about the food try this epic hot chocolate recipe.
