Checking out peplums...

I have seen quite a few bloggers wearing those amazing checked Uniqlo trousers and when I saw how awesome Jen, Hannah and Claire looked, I wanted in on the checked action. I picked up this pair of trousers after a lunchtime trip to New Look and I love the slim cut mixed with the check pattern. 

Top: Primark, trousers:New Look, belt: Miss Selfridge, shoes:New Look
I finally got my hair cut at the weekend and it feels so much better, if anyone is looking for a hairdressers in Cheltenham then I would definitely recommend Blushes on Montpellier, I have been a few times now and I trust them with my hair (which is definitely a big deal for me!)


I have had this top for a few years and I thought the slightly flared hem would work with the narrow cut of the trousers. I'm not sure what I think of the peplum trend, I love it on other people but I can't help but think that my hips don't need any help in looking any wider so (I hope) this hem is a subtle nod to the trend...

I love how this looks like my legs continue from one photo to the next, small things eh?!
The trousers are thin but still really warm and I can't wait to pair them with cosy jumpers and my favourite ankle boots when it gets colder, I think I will be going for androgynous layers this winter rather than my usual dresses and tights. I love the checked print and they will definitely be getting a lot of wear this winter!


Would you wear a peplum? Do you own a pair of checked trousers?

I love the trousers and would llove some, but I will never feel comfortable with my shape in trousers. I've tried in the past and I just feel so self-conscious in them. Likewise with peplums!

I really want to start wearing peplum! I don't know if it would suit me. It looks great on you!

I've really started to love printed trousers recently! I'd love to get my hands on a pair of checked ones :)
I'm totally into the peplum trend. I must have one in every colour!

I didn't own any trousers until I got a pair of jeans recently, might treat myself to some nice tartan ones in navy and green maybe to wear with shirts to work x

Love the trousers!
I tend to steer away from peplum, but I've seen some lovely tops lately. Might be brave.

I love the trews and the peplum action Maria! I am also with you on the hairdressers front, it's so hard to find one you trust and when you did - you definitely have to hold on to them!

it isn't worth me buying trousers at the moment as my size will change but dammit I want those! x

I think that this almost peplum looks gorgeous on you - there are so many different styles of peplum, I think there's one for every body type. The pants look great too x
