Jacquard trousers...

Looks wise, there's not much my Mum and I have in common, she is tall and slim and I am short and...not, which means there's not many clothes that suit both of us (much to my dismay as my Mum has the most amazing style and a shared fondness for Hobbs) Despite this, we occasionally pick up the same thing and are then massively excited when we see the other wearing it (the exciting lives we lead!) These trousers were a bargain in the M&S sale before Christmas and I fell in love with the subtly jazzy print and the fit- it's not often that my waist and hips are happy to share the same pair of trousers! 

Cardigan: BHS via Mark's mum, top: Primark, belt: Primark, trousers: Marks & Spencer, shoes: Dorothy Perkins
I knew they would be perfect for work and they are, equally nice with both my omnipresent loafers and a pair of black heels (another rare attribute for trousers) I know there are more exciting ways to style these (just look at the lovely Miss Cohen for proof of that!) but sometimes keeping it simple makes it much easier to get out of the door in the morning! I never thought this top would become such a wardrobe staple but it is so comfy and skims over my stomach- winner! 


Just look at how awesome the print is on these! You all know that I am quite the fan of bright colours and jazzy prints but I know not all of you are as keen, so a subtle print in a fairly sober colour is ideal if you are trying to ease yourself out of wearing all black outfits to work, February is grey enough already! 


What have you been wearing to brighten up February?

Oooh, they look amazing! I think markies have some fantastic trews in just now. My hips are my biggest area so I've always struggled to find trousers and jeans that fit me. But in markies at the moment they have different styles to suit different shapes... So ones for slim waist, massive hips, or vice versa! I got a pair of black skinny jeans and they fit like a dream! Long love markies!xx

Great colour and subtle print. They're a lovely fit on you. I'm rocking rusty red tights with a turquoise, navy and mustard print dress today. I don't do dull February clothes! Hehe

Love your new trousers, they look amazing and really versatile. I agree sometimes the simpler looks are best for whe you are rushing to get to work. These days I often save my brighter colours and prints for weekends.

Those pants look FANTASTIC on you! I really love the casual yet sophistication of this outfit. It's just what I'm looking for! Now, if only I could find pants long enough for me.. then I'd be in the money. Lol! ;)

Oooh, what a lovely print! My mum & I share cardis but we're completely different sizes too....I think she'd steal all my clothes if we were the shame size haha! I've started dressing like it's spring. ;)

Oooh I love these Maria! It's loud enough to be different but definitely still ticks the smart corporate box :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

I feel like Spring is nearly here so I've been wearing lots of brightly coloured tights and clashing patterns to brighten up cold mornings :) I used to love sharing shoes with my mum but then I outgrew her as she has teeny tiny size 3 feet!
