Hot pink and dalmatian print...

If you know me, you know I love hot pink. It's a colour I always go back to and when I saw these trousers in H&M it was love at first sight. I had been looking for some clothes to update my work wardrobe and these were perfect, a classic shape in a modern and fun colour. 

Blazer: New Look, top: H&M, trousers: H&M, belt: H&M, shoes: George at ASDA, necklace: Accessorize 
With trousers this bright, I thought I had better tone the rest of my outfit down so I stuck to a monochrome palette...

Messenger bag: c/o Spartoo
Totally in love with my bag too, it is the perfect size for work and even manages to fit my lunch in [not bad considering that needed a bag all of its own before!] I only wish it was leather although PVC is probably a bit easier to keep clean!


Unusually with these trousers, they fitted both my waist and my hips, quite a feat when you consider the size difference between the two... I think my waist is 30" whereas my hips are 38", quite a difference!


These shoes are definitely  my favourite bit of the outfit though, you  know how much I love a good block heel! The best part though? They cost the measly sum of £12 (!) and are ridiculously comfortable, get yourself to ASDA, pronto!

What are your recent bargains? Which colour do you always go back to?

The trousers are gorgeous and look so lovely on you! I usually shy away from bright trousers so as not to draw attention to my bum/hips lol but this may have just swayed me! x

I massively heart your trousers - these days whenever I plan a trouser purchase I always lean towards bright colours - usually red!

This is such a great outfit for work, I love it when someone wears colour...so many people stick to safer black or grey. And those shoes! i love them, such a bargain! KG were doing similar for over £100!!

Love your trousers!! And your bag! Cant believe your shoes were £12, there are ones in River Island exactly like them for £40 odd. Amazing find :)

Those shoes are asda? they look amazing. Love the hot pink trousers too. I struggle with well fitting trousers for the same reasons too (probably partly why i favour dresses! :) xx

I love this whole outfit! I don't really go back to one specific colour, but I do like wearing Autumnal hues :)

Those asda shoes were a bargain! I love that bag too, I really want it in blue or green. Satchels are great for work, stylish but functional x

Everytime I come on your blog I want to start my comment with Mariaaa Mariiaaa you remind me of a west side story.... but I guess you get that a lot and it's now an annoyance right? I HATE it when people sing The Damned "Eloise" at me.
Rambles aside I LOVE pink on you! I always think it looks better on brunettes
