Leather love...

I have been craving leather trousers for a long time (especially after Jen and Chloe looked so good in them) but was put off by the fact that they were either like leggings or super shiny. Not a forgiving look, I'm sure you'll agree! I saw these waxed jeans in the River Island sale [I can't see them online unfortunately!] and they offered me the perfect compromise, they have that luxe leather look with the comfort of actual trousers... win win!  I will give them this much too, these trousers are warm...

Trousers: River Island, beloved owl top: Zara, jumper: Primark, ring: Topshop, shoes: Primark
 I thought I would keep it simple with my favourite ever t-shirt and the jumper I have barely taken off. I love it when an outfit is made up of old and new favourites, it just shows that my policy of only buying clothes you love, does work...

I just love the zip detailing, it made me feel so rock 'n' roll! 
 Smudgy eyeliner (again!) and a bright pink lipstain...

I was unsure about which bag to wear with the outfit as I didn't want to wear too much black but I thought this gorgeous Kate Benjamin bag which Accessories Direct sent me was enough to add a touch of fun (even if it was black!)

Bag: c/o Accessories Direct.
Longtime readers of Frills 'n' Spills will know that I can't resist a bow and this fulfils all my OTT tendencies...


Plus the lining is emerald green! [This is my glamourous assistant face :P]


This little beauty, though, has blogger written all over it! I love love love the cartoon hearts on it and despite its garish fun print, the colours mean it is incredibly versatile. If I had been going anywhere nice when I wore this outfit, I think it would have been the perfect finishing touch...

Do you like fun clutch bags? Would you wear leather trousers?

The trousers look incredible, Maria! I have resolved to have a very similar policy of only buying quality things that I really love :) Love the bright lining of the bag, too. x

Those leather trousers look amazing on you! I've only recently ventured into wearing leather, and really want to try a pair of leather trousers now.
And the clutch is incredible! I love the green insides.

I'm never sure of leather trousers, but these look so amazing on you I'd be tempted to reconsider

Great post. I never thought leather trousers could really be flattering- but they really are, they look great! I love the ring- where's it from?

VR said...

What a pity your make up doesn't really show up in the pictures. The trousers look great though.

Lauren-Ella said...

They really suit you, you look fab in them! And I want both of those clutches! haha xx

I applaud your bravery for wearing those trousers- they look great! Great choice of jumper too, since it helps to play them down a bit.

These are fab, and you look lovely. I love the jumper with the, I think they look ace xx

You look gorgeous! Really like how you've styled the trousers, I always thought leather trousers were a little too "out there" but you've made them look super classy and stylish! The bow bag is beautiful too! xxx

Oooh loving the jumper, it looks like the same as mine but in cream! It's gorgeous isn't it? I would wear mine all the time if I could haha! Love the bags, that heart one is the sweetest thing ever!

I can't use clutches, I carry way too much junk around with me, camera, purse, full make up bag and loads more haha xx

I've been thinking about leather trousers for a while, but have my doubts, these seem like a perfect alternative xxx

I love knits and leather, they believe they perfectly balance each other.
