Style | ASOS Trousers

Thursday, 16 February 2017 | No comments


Hi

I thought it was about time to invest in some more work trousers, I have been wearing my favourite Yours Clothing ones for a few years now. They are super comfortable but I wanted something slightly more tapered as the Yours ones are a bootcut. I purchased these ones from ASOS a couple of weeks ago along with a few other items, I actually bought everything at full price which is very unusual for me, I do like a sale item


 
 I got these trousers in a size 24. I would say that they are definitely true to size, but if you like stretch in your trousers then I would suggest sizing up, there is no give in these at all especially around the waist. In terms of length they were perfect on my 5ft 3 frame, normally I have to get the hems taken up but these hit the tops of my feet which is fine for me. I was also really impressed at how they washed and dried, barely any creasing and so quick and easy to iron.


My new shoes, I'm in love!

Style | Down by the lake

Tuesday, 14 February 2017 | No comments




One of my favourite things to do when we go to Milton Keynes is to have a wander around one of the lakes. There are quite a few, so far I've been to Furzton, Willen and my favourite Caldecotte, which is where these pictures were taken.



It was such a beautiful day when we went, despite the chilly start the sun then made an appearance and it was lovely. I asked Mr C to take a few snaps of me once he finished photographing all the ducks, swans and geese!



I bought this shirt and pair of shoes recently from New Look. They were definitely late night random purchases but once they arrived and I'd tried them on I was super happy. The shirt is a little something different for me as I rarely wear shirts, they always end up gaping over the bust on me. I sized up to a 24 with this one and although it's slightly big on me I really like the oversized effect it gives and it means no gaping across the bust!


Again, the shoes are something unusual for me as I'm more of your plain, simple shoe girl. But when I saw these I couldn't resist and at £8 that was even more of a reason to pop them in my bag! They were actually quite comfortable while were walking around and I absolutely love how they look, especially with jeans but I would also wear them to work as well.
