|Brora Wool and Mohair Coat|
Fabric from Lochcarron of Scotland
Hermes Giverny scarf
So when I saw this gorgeous blue coat in the same fabric, with a matching skirt, I knew it was just the winter outfit I would wear on repeat for many years.
The Liberty cotton lining is absolutely exquisite, and the perfect compliment to the blue tones. And the coral piping on the interior is an inspired choice!

Lochcarron of Scotland. This surprised me because I know Lochcarron as a producer of tartan fabrics, so this particular fabric must have been ordered specially for Brora.
Have you heard of Lochcarron? If you have some Scottish ancestry (or even if you don't!) this is the place to source your perfect tartan skirt for holidays (you can have one made full-length) or for everyday wear (they'll make up a simple straight skirt for you out of your choice of tartan as well).
This is something I've been thinking of doing for years. My grandfather was from Scotland, born in Edinburgh he immigrated to Canada at age twelve. He was a Grant, and when I was a kid he had kilts made up for me in his clan tartan. Through Lochcarron I could order a kilt or a skirt in Grant Ancient, Grant Modern or Grant Weathered.

Back to the Brora coat and skirt and my love affair with it:

Enjoy your Sunday Tooties, are you doing anything fun? I'll definitely be watching the Oscars later on today, with some sparkling wine and snacks. How about you?
