Yes, I finally made it to the Yorkshire Moors, made famous by one Emily Bronte who wrote the classic gothic novel Wuthering Heights which I absolutely love. I wanted to hit 2 birds with one stone and squeeze in a moors-inspired outfit post which seemed like a great idea from my warm bed but turned out to not have been the best thought out plan in practice. I did get to take the second of my mum’s dresses out for a spin. I chose to wear it as a coat though for a more casual factor and I think that’s how I’ll get the most wear out of both of them – just chuck them over a simple outfit and add some pattern awesomeness.
Sweater: No Name
I have to admit that the trousers aren’t something I would usually wear but I really loved the gothic-esque pattern and decided to take a chance on them (they were on sale). I have to say, I don’t regret it! They’re excellent for making an outfit pop particularly if you’re like me and have a lot of solid colored tops.
It was all fine and dandy to start with – not very cold and actually a bit sunny. But then it all suddenly turned as the wind picked up, everything went dark and the rain started. Exactly how miserable the weather became cannot be demonstrated by just one picture but I have attached one anyway for your personal amusement. I think this has made it clear that I am no Bear Grylls – I’m such a fashion victim.
