Another busy and exciting week in the books! January 25th was Burns Day, which is a “holiday” here in Scotland that celebrates the life and work of Rabbie Burns, Scotland’s national poet (you probably know him as the writer of everybody’s favorite New Year’s Eve song, “Auld Lang Syne”). As such, it was a fun and festive week with lots of cultural events to commemorate the day. Plus, even though I rarely say this, I think all of this week’s outfits are winners! I didn’t even wear the same bottoms twice, which is kind of a big deal when you pack as few pants as I did.

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”
