It's that time of year again, when taking outfit pictures becomes a battle against the elements and the swiftly waning light. I tried my best last winter and mostly succeeded but as you may have noticed, things have been slow around here as it is. Truth be told I've been struggling to find a balance between sewing, blogging and everything else in between.
I love my blog and I suppose you could say that getting dressed is a favoured hobby of mine but I never really set out to write a style blog. The blogs that I have admired from the beginning and really immerse myself in are actually more like an online dairy that anything else - a bit of everything, whatever is going on in the writers life. I find it so interesting to see a little glimpse into how these girls live and dress in foreign cities and to follow a little part of their life.

In the past I've been hesitant to blog about things that aren't frocks or shoes, I suppose this is partly though bad experiences that I've had and if I'm totally honest its easy to stick with what you know. With all of this in mind, I've decided to try and change things up a little around here. That doesn't mean that outfit posts are going to outlawed, not at all. I would hate that! Just that I'm going to make room for other things as well.
This is how Adam and I spent our Sunday, wandering around town drinking coffee and settling into the festive spirit. We stopped by The Red Door Gallery on Victoria Street to see the lovely window display packed full of A Wooden Tree's creations. Then onto one of Edinburgh's (we have two) year round Christmas shops to pick out some tree decorations. I found it so hard to choose between Young Victoria, Sherlock Holmes and Henry VIII plus all his wives so in the end I left them behind and bought HMS Victory instead. Then home for homemade pizza with Venison pepperoni, which I did try to capture but my low light photography still needs some work.
