Thanks for joining me today, you're just in time for this month's Style Steal. If you're not a regular visitor to my little blog let me explain what my Style Steal is. Every month I try to emulate another bloggers outfit, sometimes a pretty good copy, other times I might just use the same colours with a different angle.
This month has proved rather a difficult one. You see I've spotted plenty of pretty & stylish outfits, but they all seem to have components that were out of my grasp! That was until I saw my delightful friend wearing a crisp cool pair of wide leg linen trouser with a dainty slip of a top.
I have had a pair of linen trousers hanging in the wardrobe for ….. well for years! See when I wore them with my black and white Jaeger top. My pretty floral top was bought for my recent holiday to Ibiza - blog to follow this week.
This was still too warm to wear so I switched to white shorts for the rest of the day. Much cooler! I'd wear this for an evening out with friends, it's such a relaxed look and the linen trousers can be worn with just about any top.
Do you know who I've stolen from this month? I've possibly sent you off on a tangent as the steal is not a total copy, but this is the nearest I found in the wardrobe!
Were you right? Well it's Anna my friend from Anna's Island Style
I love the simplicity of linen trousers, even with the creased effect that always happens when you wear linen. Wide leg palazzo style are very flattering for any body shape - and that's why they suit everyone! My trousers are not the cropped version that Anna has chosen, but you still get the flattering drape on the hemline. As I said earlier mine have been around for years - I bought them in M & S to pair with a pretty tassel top. They've been worn on so many outings & for all different occasions. I do like a versatile piece and these are no exception. I have listed a link to a pair from Boohoo, but frankly you can get some in most stores. I hunted in my wardrobe for a little top like Anna has worn, to no avail. Settling on this thin strap floral style from George. The side tie detail is rather appealing and gives depth to an otherwise basic summer top.
You can see another Style Steal here featuring another fabulous style.
Many thanks for your support & if you'd like to subscribe I'd be delighted.
Catch you on Thursday for the #chicandstylish #linkup, until then have a super week!
Bye for now. X
