Can't believe we're so far into May already, but fortunately for me nearer my birthday. 😏
Now's the time to start dropping hints, big hints *cough, cough* around the family! Lol.
In my local F & F last week, whilst I was returning an item I came across these stylish trousers.
Finding my size I took a chance and left with them.
I fell for these straight away, they were in the sale, for only £8 and I knew I'd got a bargain, result!
Drawn by the floral design and the dominant green calling out to me. I haven't got many pieces in any sort of green, other than Army, khaki green. Check out my Peg Trousers here. So I took on the challenge with pleasure.
I have to admit I was stumped when I got them home and realised there was nothing to match my purchase in my wardrobe, well apart from the umpteen black tops, white blouses and various blazers in my wardrobe. However after a rummage through my T shirt drawer I came across this basic green one, the colour harmonised perfectly. But begs the question 'could I go out for dinner in just a T shirt over the trousers' - was that just too plain and casual?
I wasn't sure how good they'd look on, but I needn't have worried they fitted with ease, felt super on and I reckon look great.
The slim style finishing on the ankle gave a flattering finish, the side zip showing a flat front, along with the high waist holding everything in!
If wearing a floral or patterned piece, I feel it's always best to pair with something plain, which balances the overall look, piecing in a scarf or an accessory to pick out the theme and colour - for example a square beaded necklace if your wearing something check or gingham see my Black Gingham Top.
Well I think I've just about got this covered, by pairing with white sandals and my pretty white flower choker (I fixed the clip onto the chain not the clasp to make it tighter on my neck) along with a short black jacket giving my T shirt outfit a bit of style and edge, and not at all too plain!
My bag is from Forever 21 previously paired Here with a white Broderie Anglaise dress at a Christening.
My choice was spot on for the meal out on Saturday night, a meal of Steak - cook your own steak at that, accompanied by chips, mushrooms, tomatoes and onions. You're given a raw steak and a hot, very hot lava plate that you simply cook your own steak on, rare, medium or well done, it's up to you how it's cooked. Mine was perfect, prompting me to send 'Compliments to the Chef' of course - ha ha ha!!
So enjoy the beginning of your week,
I'd just like to ask, as a reader of my blog do you prefer to know where the garments I wear come from? Some blogs I read have a link to the actual item or a similar one - is this something you'd like me to do?
I do hope you can pop back on Thursday, I've got some wonderful shots that Esther Ruby has taken for me, we've been among the Bluebells and I can't wait to share them with you!
Bye for now. X
