The great outdoors

Now that it's properly chilly, I can bring out my Penfield down jacket. I'm not usually one for puffa jackets, but I do love this particular Penfield Gillman jacket. It's a collaboration with Scottish wool maker Jamieson's of Shetland so it features a Fair Isle knit yoke and pockets.

I got my jacket in the ASOS sale back in April, when it was reduced from £260 to £130 down to £65. I couldn't believe what a bargain it was and knew that even though I wasn't going to be wearing it for months, I'd appreciate it when I did.

And I do. It's so cosy and warm. I can't wait for the weekend, when I can team it with a scarf, hat and hiking boots for a brisk walk in the country. What better excuse to embrace the great outdoors, eh?
