You guys don't really seem to have been enjoying the outfits on the blog lately, which makes me sad, but I'm not sure what it is you want to see? If there are specific kinds of outfits you want to see, just let me know. Maybe you want to see more basic outfits, more rock stuff, more layered ones - whatever, just let me know as I have pretty much a wardrobe full of possibilities! However for the moment, I'm going to hope you are all quietly enjoying this pop of orange in my outfit for this week, which I wore recently. Even if you hate the outfit, I'm sure you're going to love the orange cheeriness, which comes in the form of my gorgeous new Catherine Aitken Harris Tweed backpack. 

This is one of only two backpacks I own and I'd forgotten just how amazing it is to have your hands entirely free! This bag can pack a lot of stuff into it too as the fold over can reduce the more you carry in the bag.

Harris Tweed is by far one of my favourite materials and I love that Catherine brings this very traditional fabric into such contemporary settings.

I love when you get that one special piece and it turns out you have all the other bits to build up an outfit full of complimentary colours. Appeals to my graphic designer sensibilities!

And yes, Donald finally found his troosers....
