Cropped leg trousers at a bargain price!

Hello there, how are you?

I'm really, really getting excited now as at the weekend we have a big family wedding to attend.  Everything is finally in place now - the outfit is ready and waiting, make-up lady booked, spray tan arranged, hair trimmed and nails ready nearly varnished.  Praying for fine weather - so I'm outside doing the 'sun dance' as we speak!  Lol

Talking about the weather, I'm starting to take notice of the possible change of season!  With Autumn fashion not only starting to trickle into the stores, but is beginning to invade social media sites with some promising ideas floating about.  I for one have fallen head over heels (excuse the pun) for the peep toe boots I see everywhere.  I'm hoping to make them an addition to my wardrobe soon, it's just a case of finding the right ones!
But look what I did find in my local F & F store today - are you liking the wide legged trouser of the cropped variety?
Having to be really careful as to where on the leg these finish, an inch is the difference between a chic, polished outfit looking like you've out-grown your trousers!
I've been very undecided with these, and took a chance before the blighters could get away - so glad I did because they are really a fun, fashion item that's going to look great with so much already hanging in my wardrobe.  These are actually navy, but are looking decidedly black in the photos!
Today being paired with cream - and what's not to love about a lace top?  Elegant and stylish don't you think?
Recently seeing the lovely Mary from the Pouting Pensioner sharing her outfit that involved leg lengthening nude court shoes I adopted the same mind set and donned my own!



 
How about the ribbon choker?  A cheap trick don't you think?  Especially when it may belong  to one of your daughters friends!!






I'm going to have to let you all into my little secret ... the cropped leg wear costing an astounding £5 - so glad they found there way into my trolley yesterday!

Trousers from F & F.
Lace top from Next.
Nude court shoes from Lotus shoes.
Bag from Lotus shoes.

Looking forward to seeing you on Monday, I'll be sharing with you all a few photos from the wedding.

I'm off to get my nails beautifully polished, grab my confetti and a few tissues - there's bound to be a few tears on Saturday - firstly from me when I say "I remember when you were born" and then from my nephews when I say "give auntie a kiss" 💋 He he he. !!!

Thanks to Emily for taking these photos.

Catch you Monday peeps. X

  1. So pretty, love the lace, the trouser cut ... and the bargain! I agree, an infinity nude shoe is a must for that length of trouser. Thanks for the mention, Jacquie, I'm flattered! Wishing you a joyous wedding day, looking forward to seeing the pics and seeing what you wore!

  7. This is very elegant outfit, Jacuqi. The pants are of a perfect length and nude shoes is a perfect choice in creating elongating effect. Love the choker, it adds a youthful feel, no wonder it belongs to your daughter's friend. Have a good time at the wedding

  13. Very classy Jacqui! Love the lace peplum top and choker. I have a similar top and should copy you sometime, don't think I've ever shown it on my blog. I'm wearing a black chocker in my new post.

  14. I love the lace top with the ribbon choker, very elegant. Those trousers were such a bargain! I tried to have a browse in Tesco yesterday but I was with my daughter buying school uniform (always last minute!) and couldn't concentrate! Then she saw a couple of her friends and they were racing up and down the aisles so I couldn't wait to get out of there! Gorgeous bag, Lotus have some fab bags and shoes. Thanks for linking up :-)

    1. Oh that's a shame Emma, I don't have that trouble any more, unless I have y granddaughter with me, and I'm normally playing about with her like a kid too!
      I bought another pair very similar in George @ Asda, not tried them on yet, but I'm hoping they'll look fabulous. x Hope you can get a look when they are back in school. x
