Baggy Trousers

I've been wanting to get involved with the baggy pants gang for a few weeks but all the pairs I fell in love with seemed to come with a hefty price tag, thanks Net-A-Porter for teasing me as usual. So I came to the conclusion that surely a few sizes up would probably do the same job, thank you H&M.  I have this pair in various colours in my correct size and love them and at £24.99 they are a great price. As these trousers have a stretch to them anyway the bottoms are still fitted so they've avoided resembling a pair of 90's leathers.

Winter Wonderland

Incase you haven't looked out of your window I thought I should mention it's snowing outside. I thought moving away from Newcastle that I would dodge such inconvenient weather but I guess I thought wrong! Never one to let the weather get the better of my outfit options I thought today would be the perfect opportunity to wear my Mohair Cardigan. As a shortie it's not always practical to wear but on a snow day it's the perfect way to stay warm and cosy without looking like the the Michelin Man's child and the Mohair fabric is a great way to add texture when wearing head to toe black.

Grey Day

 As a pale Blonde I find it hard to look good in head to toe black, so to give a dark outfit more warmth I like to add various shades of Grey and textures to keep the outfit more Chic than Goth. I purchased this coat from EBay for the bargain price of £40 including postage, I'm going to change the buttons eventually but apart from that the quality doesn't vary from the high street and the shape is just what I was after. As a whole excluding my Givenchy clutch this is a pretty bargain filled outfit, I've been lusting after the Jimmy Choo trainers for some time but I've never been able to bring myself to part with £300+ pounds for trainers when I'm mainly a heel girl. Then as if by magic  a friend told me about this version from Matalan they were £14 but I got them in the sale for £7 and the quality is actually really good. I've already received a few compliments on them, of course I admitted they weren't the real deal. I love them so much I also bought them in Beige so I have the full set.
