Uh yes, you can always count on us to give tips on appropriate gear to scale a mountain hill.

Here am I, walking up the treacherous terrain of Holyrood Park that leads to Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Choose leggings for maximum comfort and ease of movement. Wear shiny ones like mine, just in case you get lost and need emergency rescue – shininess aids visibility. Was still chilly in the morning so I had my boyfriend’s trench coat on. Useful to have since you can take it off after walking uphill for like two minutes cos you’ll start to perspire and then you can take it off, as per Exhibit B.

Washed denim oversized shirt-dress with cut-out shoulders (tied at hips), from Cheap Monday at Weekday. Hooded sports trench, from Giordano Concepts. Leggings, from Topshop. Boat shoes, from Sperry Top Sider. Bag, from Charles & Keith.

Remember to wear something that exposes your shoulders so you cool down quickly after a tiring climb.

Actuallyyyyyyy, I wanted to show you the blue sky (check!) and my cute shirt dress that I bought from Weekday in Copenhagen (though originally from Sweden), but just figured the photos are kinda too small and the shirt too light-coloured to see the details. O well.

I hope you have found this episode of What to wear to ascend a hill.
