An Ode to the Shetland Isles

Every year around this time, I get the travel bug real bad. I’ve always been in love with Europe, and there are a few countries on my bucket list I have yet to visit. Scotland is one of them. Friend’s who’ve been to Scotland always speak wonders about its breathtaking scenery and rich history. I can’t help but feel a bit of FOMO.

Burberry was obviously equally intrigued, since their new crop of cashmere sweaters was partly inspired by the magically quaint Shetland Isles. I always love finding out the inspirations behind the creations. When you wear a piece with a back story, it’s like you carry with you a piece of the journey — a hint of the experience. So even if I don’t get to escape to Scotland next year, Burberry sure gave me a welcomed and wonderful reprieve.
