It's been pretty cold and frosty up here recently and so Max and Juno (and I!) took the opportunity to go for a wander...
They began with a short walk around Kinnordy Loch in Angus.
Everything was touched with a crunchy layer of exquisitely perfect ice crystals, including the gently twisting boardwalk paths that marked the walking route.
It was all very photogenic.
They stopped for a while in one of the wooden bird hides by the loch in the hope of seeing some wildlife, but it was far too cold and they didn't linger long! However, the windows of the hide were covered in an absolutely stunning array of ice crystals which just begged to be photographed!
After all that a quick coffee and warming up stop at Deja Brew was in order.

but you know what I'm like so it'll probably be some time next year lmao
Cosy jumpers just didn't cut it a week or two on though, when they visited a very frosty Loch Lomond, so the jacket and scarf combo were brought out instead.
The loch was incredibly still and the light absolutely beautiful.
Back home they took Baxter out for a brief walk.
Everything the frost touched gained its own unique charm and the photographical opportunities were numerous!
'It really is freezing out here isn't it?'
'Yeeeeppppp. We should probably go back inside before we end up crystallised ourselves!'
'Definitely! Hot chocolate might help too I reckon!'
Once back in their cosy home and fully thawed out, Juno could finally show off her latest outfit; a vintage inspired dress which is perhaps a little inappropriate for the current season without something warm on top!
I used -this- pattern, with a couple of alterations and I really want to make it again as I learned a lot from sewing it and I know I can get the skirt part looking a lot less stiff and unnatural next time.
I did take Baxter with them on their little photoshoots but only used him once, so here he is again, literally chilling in my pocket until I needed him. XD
(The last lot of outdoor photos were taken in my back garden, and it was pretty chilly so please excuse the lack of sartorial elegance - comfy loungewear and furry boots ftw! 😝)
