I got my new tripod on Saturday, and it feels SO good to finally share an outfit post again! I’ve missed blogging and have felt very odd not posting the last few weeks (aside from my weekly recaps, of course—but I don’t really count those). Today’s blog post is my monthly collaboration with the Thrifty Six, and Emma chose the theme ‘Brighten Up January’ for this month. Usually I really dislike January—all the holidays are over, it’s cold and dark, and everybody is trying to have a healthy start to the new year (which generally means eating less sweets, boo).

What a week it’s been, full of excitement, frustration, and lots of adjustments! Unfortunately, my tripod broke right before I left for Scotland (and it didn’t fit in my bag anyways) so I am currently tripod-less and photographer-less… which means no new outfit photos for the time being. But, thankfully, my dorm closet did come with a full-length mirror on the door, so I can still share my outfits of the day—even if the lighting/quality isn’t the best. I’m hoping to get the photo-taking situation figured out soon so that I can get back on my posting schedule! But until then, here are my outfits and all the fun exploring I’ve been up to in Glasgow for my first week here. Continue reading “Weekly Recap #1, 2022 + Linkup”
