Inspired (or perhaps a better term is 'enabled') by Claire I bought these blue trousers from New Look. Go to Claire's blog to see how she wore them.
New Look still have similar ones still for sale.
I haven't really bought trousers like this before, where they aren't jeans (my usual lower body clothing item of choice) and they aren't boring work trousers. They are really really comfy. Soft material and stretch slightly with wear.
I went for a really classic look here I think. White shirt, red cardi and a dash of spots in the scarf. Not edgy, but reasonably timeless. I think I will wear them with lots of stuff, and I have bought very similar ones in a dark tan colour.
Shirt is from Simply Be and I'm looking forward to wearing it more this season. Lovely light cotton, but I sized up to a size 28 for a looser fit and to be honest it was touch and go over the boobage. I am hoping it hasn't shrunk in the wash and I may have to use my secret weapon: needle and thread. I have been known to sew shirts shut so there is no gaping around the buttons. Nothing worse than gapage and a peek-a-boo bra.
Cardigan is from H&M and a complete bargain. £8!!! Scarf from Primark. Where else? ;)
Yes, I am holding a lemon. That was my 3 year old daughter's contribution to the styling on this outfit. Very handy for impromptu gin and tonics.
So are you a blue trouser kinda girl?
