Shopping on a rainy day in Edinburgh: Jigsaw (George Street)

The winds are picking up, here in Edinburgh; I had to rescue some of the more delicate herbs from the balcony this morning, and my poor potted lavender nearly drowned.  I’ve been doing mostly back-to-school shopping of notepads and fresh pens.  I am fully prepared for the crappy weather armed with new cosy jumpers, cashmere layers, stupendously long scarves and soft woollen mittens.

I stopped in at Jigsaw this afternoon and fell in love with the new collection.  Loads of super-soft knits in shades of aubergine, plum and forest green. Bow-tie blouses a la ingenue, and my ubiquitous Breton striped top.  Curvaceous draped jersey dresses and prim French Roman Catholic schoolgirl-esque frocks (minus the obscene skirts, almost nun-like in simplicity).  Pencil skirts, secretary skirts, sexy schoolmarm skirts.  And beautifully tailored trousers, in a easy slouchy fit or my new favourite – neat and cropped, with button detailing at the dainty ankle.  All finished off with the most adorable pair of velvet trainers and a chunky wool scarf woven through with satin ribbon.
