This outfit has been one of my favourite ones to wear recently; it is ridiculously comfy (hello oversized top!) but these beautiful printed trousers from Topshop are jazzy enough to lift it out of complete slob territory. I usually wear it when I feel in need of cheering up- it is impossible to stay grumpy when you have such a fun bottom half! I actually spent weeks tracking down these trousers, I spotted them online but they had sold out of my size and the same was true in-store until recently. When I saw them on the rail, I launched myself at them and was at the till quicker than you could say fashion victim, I love it when a plan comes good! Printed trousers can be pretty difficult to style but but a plain top and a jazzy pair of heels go a long way to make them more wearable...

I love this oversized top but it does have a tendency to make me look slightly pregnant, just look how much material there is! I'm not sure whether the excess material helps to make my waist look smaller in comparison or just make my hips look bigger ;) The fit on these trousers is a little odd too, the waist and hips are pretty roomy but the calves have absolutely no wriggle room at all- avoid these if you have legs that are any more muscular than mine!
Navy and orange is one colour combination that I really love and this Primark belt is the perfect shade of orange to match the abstract floral print on the trousers. I am on the hunt for a dressier navy or cobalt blue top to pair with these trousers over Christmas, any ideas where I could get one? My usual search of ASOS has let me down :(

I don't need to tell you (again) how much I love these heels, I am seriously tempted to get the metallic version for the festive season, especially as I know how comfy they are! Although I'm sure I could get away with flats with this outfit, wearing heels actually gave me more of a spring in my step and the extra boost of confidence I needed to ignore the slightly confused faces of Tewkesbury's residents and wear these trousers with the panache they deserved!
How do you wear patterned trousers? Any ideas where I can get a 'fancy' cobalt blue top from?
