    I have a friend who keeps nagging me to take the family & go camping with them …. they are on thin friendship ice ;-) I love walking out and about (all my shoes and boots are flat, I can’t do heels I have tried) so my entire wardrobe is aimed at comfortable.

      Haha, I don’t mind camping but that usually depends on the weather ;-)

    I think I’m the other way round, I have so many casual clothes, but putting them together stylishly is a bit more of a struggle! The gilet is perfect for early spring/autumn, and would work with so many things I already have.

      I agree on the gilet, I need to keep a look out for a nice one :-)

    I can’t do heels at all! I was talking about this with some friends the other day- two of them have super cheap boots from New Look (£20) but the soles come off really easily so they keep buying new pairs. I have some boots that are Clarks (from John Lewis, but I am sure they are Clarks) and I think I have had them for 4 years now. They need a bit of a polish every now and then but I think getting something quality works out better in the end.
    I don’t like boyfriend fit jeans in the cold- they let all the cold air in!

      Agree on the quality although I know I have some New Look / Primark boots that have lasted well, only due to the fact I don’t wear them often enough to get worn!

    I think my ‘getting outside’ wardrobe is probably not very fashionable at all! We’re talking serious walking gear – labels I flaunt when out in the hills include Paramo, North Face (but the functional stuff not the trendy stuff!), Alt-Berg (my uber-wide walking boots), Rohan (my VERY untrendy but so comfy walking trousers) and Rab (my ‘transitional gilet’ – it’s bright purple but it’s filled with down and is so light and warm). Some of my most expensive clothing is walking gear – my waterproof Paramo jacket was £200 – but when you are up a mountain and it’s lashing down with rain it becomes a very sensible investment! But the most versatile thing I have is my Buff – those tubes of fabric that can be hats, scarves, bandanas, even hankies (when you’ve nothing else!) – would hate to be without a couple in my bag!

    Walking in the hills is such an amazing experience – so stress-busting yet challenging and you get a great sense of achievement when you can tick off a few more mountain tops on your list (and British mountains are so much more accessible than the higher ones abroad!). Even if we get caught out in dreadful weather I never regret a day out on the hills – it makes you feel alive. Like an old Fat Face Tshirt that I always wished I’d bought – ‘Better a bad day on the beach (or in the hills!) than a good day in the office’!

      I love North Face! I think it can be quite trendy ;-) A buff sounds like such a great idea, I bet they are perfect for hiking and climbing. One of my good friends does a lot of hill walking, one day I’m going to have to join her!
