Outfit - A Pirate's Life

      I feel like this week's outfit is maybe a little less obvious than some of my previous ones? Anyway, I've returned to the villainous side, with a look inspired by Captain Hook, from 'Peter Pan'. I didn't have a red cardigan or jacket (and part of this project is not going out and buying specific items all the time!), nor a white top quite as frilly as his, but I thought the peplum hem of this one, plus the flared skirt made it a bit more flouncy! The colour of the skirt is obviously to match his outfit, and the black boots are pretty close to his too. I went with feathered earrings, since I don't have a feathered cap, and a pirate medallion necklace, which has an inscription about the Jolly Roger! I added a bracelet and ring to one hand, with the silver metal meant to echo his hook. Finally, I have purple tinted makeup, to bring in the purple on his hat, and I'd slept with my hair in braids anyway, which captures some of the volume of his hair!

Pentlands Capital View | Hiking Edinburgh

     We've had some absolutely wonderful weather here in Scotland over the past few weeks, a rare occurrence for us! It's been nice for so long that I'm starting to get wary of how long it can last - surely the rain is due any moment now? But I did take advantage of this lovely warm, sunny weather the other day to go on a hike, in the Pentlands Hills, which are just to the south of Edinburgh. They cover a very large area, so there's hikes of all lengths and ability levels. I only had a few hours, being between tours, so I picked one of the shorter ones, the Capital View Walk.
