Honoring my Scottish Heritage

Posted on: October 26, 2016

My Mother’s maiden name was Campbell and she was so 

proud of her Scottish Heritage, in fact my youngest 

brother carries the name Scott to honor her pride. 

It was so fitting when she got strong enough after her heart attack to 

take her life long dream trip to Scotland that my brother accompanied her.  

Linking up with Classy Yet Trendy today

My mother instilled the Campbell plaid love to me when I was young. 

I loved the kilt skirt complete with the gold pin I had as a child in this plaid. 

It meant a lot for me as a child knowing it was a part of my heritage.

Can you believe I found this poncho when I was at AC Moore looking at craft stuff with my daughter. 

It was just $14.99, so even though I didn’t need another poncho I couldn’t help myself. 

Once again I am wearing the Halston lariat necklace (sold out) , it’s truly becoming a workhorse .  

The green necklace is by Passage to Israel , found HERE .

I need to do a better job of getting my hair away from ears.  

I bought these from TJ maxx last year in both green and purple and have worn both a lot!  

This was the beginning of me improving my earring collection,

something I neglected as I wore gold and silver hoops only for the longest time.

My jeans are by Diane Gilman and are patched with silver sequins ,

are alas sold out,  

It took me a long time to warm up to this type of “damaged” jeans , 

but this season the patched version came onto the scene making it more 

comfortable for my style. 

In this photo you can see the black and white plaid,

which I can reverse this to and it will have a tiny bit of this blackwatch plaid

just around the neckline.  I will be giving it a try at some point.

I love these blue boots I bought two years ago when in Ireland, 

they are perfect for adding to skinny jeans like this.  

Dear Readers, this darn weather gave me a sever migraine on Monday,

leaving me with residual light sensitivity and nausea all day.

  Apparently this was not just happening to me as a few Facebook friends had the same.   

Gratitude 

I am grateful that despite the residual side effects that I was pain free and the migraine was gone. 

I am grateful that getting a new charger fixed my son’s laptop issue. 

I am grateful that my daughter and son did a grocery store run for me today, as I wasn’t up for it. 

I am grateful that I had the determination to fix spaghetti squash with bacon, Parmesan and mushrooms for dinner. 

I am grateful for Fall weather arriving and the chance to start wearing some new items .

Wow—I noticed that it looked reversible in the one photo! That makes it such a perfect find Tracey!!
I know what you mean about the jeans. I have one pair and I still feel almost embarrassed to wear them in some situations!!
But I figure the next trend will be patches over the distressed part—ha ha!

Patched jeans are here, so a DIY could change yours, lol

Tracey, what a buy on that poncho! Love the plaid and the fact it is reversible! I think it is great that you are honoring and looking more into your Scottish Heritage. I want to join Ancestry.com as my mom has found info there on my Ukrainian and Irish heritage.
have a great day!

I’m in love with that reversible poncho! You look fab in it!

WOWZA!! I love your tartan poncho; no wonder you couldn’t resist. I have one that I bought in Scotland (having lived there because my husband is Scottish). I am Tartan daft, I bought so many tartan things while there, including bed sheets and lampshades! LOL How lovely that your mom got to visit her beautiful country.
