Caledonia, You're Calling Me


Today I was missing Bonnie Scotland something fierce, likely do to the cold, rainy weather, so I decided to give myself a little fashion therapy. I pulled out my wellies and my mother's kilt (which she purchased on my parent's honeymoon in Scotland many years ago), and set out into my rather chilly backyard. I decided to pair the kilt with relatively simple pieces to let it shine (plaid can be tricky). I got the longer necklace, which features a bit of a deer antler, on a pit stop to a Native American museum in New Hampshire. It's always nice to take little detours on long road trips, especially if I have my buddy Bretton in the car. I may miss Edinburgh every five seconds, but there is a lot to be said for having the freedom of a car once again.

When you studied here was that your first time in this city? What made you pick Scotland?
