Patterned trousers

Printed trousers can be tricky to pull off but luckily this black top can make even the loudest print more wearable. This is one of my favourite work outfits, it is fun but still pulled together. I am so glad that my office doesn't have a dress code because I dread to think how I would cope with having to wear a 'corporate uniform' of dark colours and no prints. I look pleased as punch in these photos, this was definitely a strutting kinda outfit! It took us so long to get some photos without rows of traffic in the back of them too, isn't the fading light causing me enough problems?! ;) #fashionbloggerwoes 

Cardigan: Gap c/o Matilda, top: Primark, trousers: Warehouse, shoes: Marks & Spencer
Originally I was going to wear this lime green jumper but the weather has been too warm to pull out my proper wintry knits so far :( This cardigan is perfect for this time of year, it is super thin and the colour is perfect for jazzing up any outfit. The fact it matches this gorgeous bright lipstick (Max Factor in Bewitching Coral FYI) is just a bonus! I recently bought the Glamour beauty box and the Laura Mercier foundation primer I got in it is beautiful- it makes my skin look and feel amazing! I just hope that I can eke out this tube for a while - it is pretty pricy...



These trousers were another Warehouse bargain (I  seriously love their stuff at the moment!) and they fit both my hips and waist - hurrah! Peg leg trousers seem to suit everyone and the print on these force the eye to skim over your lumps and bumps. What more could you ask for?! This Primark top was such a bargain buy and I love the slight peplum effect the double layer gives. Now to find a replacement before this one gives up the ghost...

Beautiful trousers - I'm so scared of trousers on me but maybe I should try a peg leg style.

I'm pro snazzy trousers. I have some camo ones that I wear when I'm cycling. They look great on you, and it's a bonus you don't have to dress 100% corporate.
