Khaki Green & Navy - #Chicandstylish #Linkup

Morning my friends. 
How’s your run up to Christmas going?

This week seems to have flown by, so much so I didn’t have a post ready to share with you!  I went out with my three daughters last night and arrived home late and only then realised I’d not done it! So please forgive me this one might seem a little rushed. 
I’ve been busy getting ready for the big day and enjoying an evening out for dinner and a quiz with the girls last night. 

Let me share a bit about my evening. It was a last minute idea to venture into our local  restaurant chain and join in the weekly quiz! We had a nice meal for a very reasonable price with a cheeky glass (or three) of fizz. I decided on a burger without bacon - who on earth has bacon on a burger? 😂 I passed on a starter mainly because I wanted the dessert, anyone else work backwards on menus? I spotted a sticky toffee pudding so that was a no-brainer for me. I opted for custard not ice cream and boy was that the best choice. As it was only down the road we walked there and back, picking my eldest daughter up on the way and dropping her off upon return. I hate walking alone at night and don’t like my daughters doing it either!  Such a sad world to think we have to be like this! 😞 
Me and the girls came a respectable 3rd … out of 4 teams, well at least we weren’t last! 😂

I wore an old faithful which you’ve seen before. My faux leather trousers came out to play as did my festive top that ticked all the right boxes. I neglected to get any photos therefore today I’ll show a recent outfit featuring green and blue, a colour combo that used to be frowned upon but now it classed as the height of fashion. X

Let me give you a very quick guide around my fashionable look. 

I found the very wide leg trousers in Vinted before I found my other pair in Primark. I was after wide leg trousers and these really are just that, very wide leg. 
I debating whether to sell them again on there as I’ve not actually worn them out. They’re from Miss Selfridge, which I don’t think is around now (correct me if I’m wrong) they fit beautifully on the waist and if they weren’t so wide a leg I’d have been really happy with my bargain beauties. However they are really very wide leg, but the length is so good and they have pockets, always a good feature don’t you think!
Khaki green is proving popular among my fashionable friends so I couldn’t wait to share these with you all.
I added a navy blouse that has a nice frilly detail on the front of the shirt, long sleeve and v neckline. 
All look perfect for a lunch date or a trip out with friends. 

I popped on a navy short jacket over the shirt. It sits nicely on the waistband which creates a lovely balanced look.  This has lovely rose gold features on the zips, such a complimentary colour to the navy blue.
Whoever said blue and green shouldn’t be seen? This proves both colours work perfectly together, tell me is in one you’d wear?

Finally to finish off my outfit are navy court shoes which have a sturdy heel. They are also the best height for my wide leg trousers, not too low so my trousers sit in just the right place. 
Do let me know your thoughts on these ultra wide trousers, are they a trend you’d wear?

Time for the Linkup, it’s #Chicandstyliah time!

  8. Jacqui, I think these khaki trousers look really good on you. Perhaps, they only need a bit of shortening to make you feel better. I love that swishing you get with wide leg pants! And, the navy (I didn't know we weren't supposed to pair navy and green) is perfect! Thank you so much for the feature! I'm always so surprised to see myself on another blog! Thank you for the link party, too! Have a wonderful holiday season with your family!
