Capri (trousers) by day...

I have been searching for the perfect pair of black trousers for a while now and Topshop came up trumps with this pair in the sale. I met up with the lovely Hattie for lunch and a catch-up and I blame her completely for my sale purchases! ;) I was a little unsure of the length of the trousers when I tried them on in-store but once I got home and was able to try them with suitable shoes I was sold...

Jumper: River Island, trousers: Topshop, top: Primark, shoes: New look, collar necklace: Topshop
 I felt quite elegant in this and the trousers definitely lent an edge of class to an extremely comfortable outfit... I wore this for a chilled out Saturday before I glammed up the trousers for an evening at the pub (post to follow!)


I have always been a bit wary of collars but the beautiful pearl detail of this convinced me to try it out, I felt like a complete blogger stereotype though!


You may recognise this bag from this post, from someone who doesn't like clutch bags, I sure have worn them a lot recently!


Peachy make-up and wind-blown curls. My hair looks surprisingly ginger here! 

Outtake of the day:  me trying to keep my hair off my face makes for some rather amusing photos...
It was so nice to see Hattie again, I love meeting up with other bloggers and we ate, talked and shopped, the perfect combination!  

Do you have a perfect pair of black trousers? Have you met up with other bloggers?

I don't own a pair of trousers, mad isn't it? Just never wear them!
I love the collar, what a lovely detail x

You look really chic, I always find trousers harder to style but I really want to challenge myself this year. i will let you know if I ever work up the colour to wear a sole colour in an outfit post, I really have enough to do it!

I had a lovely time too- also, what a numpty I am, how did I forget to ask you to take some outfit photos for me?! *facepalm* I'm glad you were convinced of them once you got them home with some good shoes- not dwarfish at all!

this is one of my fave looks of yours. reminiscient of audery hepburn perhaps x

Cathie said...

Stereotype or no, I love that collar! :) And I'm usually one to steer away from such things, too. I really like your pastel-ish outfit, and all those adorable little bows!

I know this post is about the trousers but I love that jumper, I need more jumpers in my life.

I love this outfit - really elegant.

Oh the comments button is up the top... Have to admit that took me a while :)
Those pants are rockin! I recently purchased a pair of denim capris and they are definitely going to be a major player in the game that is my wardrobe. Hehe.

I've met up with one blogger before. It was nice that you could skip the background stuff sorta kinda and just chill.

I want that collar necklace, how long ago did you get it? Worth a shot looking for it?

I love this outfit, it's gorgeous! The trousers are so nice and really suit you.
I haven't seen any bloggers since the Southampton meet up in December! I'm looking forward to seeing some next Monday though at an event :) xx

Looking beautiful as ever mi querida,really really like those trousers. I used to find skinny styles much more difficult to wear until discovering that they can be a lot better if they're a bit shorter.

Sherin said...

Definitely a really elegant look. I love those trousers. After seeing you in them, I'm on the hunt for black capris as well.
And the collar necklace is gorgeous.

This is so cute! I love your collar and the trousers are wonderful.

I'm still on the search for my ideal black trousers sadly. I have one wide legged pair but I'd love a slim fitted pair!
