How I wore gingham trousers...

Black and white is not a colour combination I go for very often but monochrome does look very chic and these Uniqlo gingham trousers were just too good to resist! I have to admit that I do look more than a little pretentious in my sunglasses but it was so bright that it was next to impossible to see without them. With the cat eye sunglasses and the skinny gingham trousers, this outfit could have been quite 1950s in style but thanks to this oversized tunic top, it felt a little more modern. I have been scouring Pinterest for some sartorial inspiration and have a few ideas. Now I just need to feel confident enough to wear it with a white shirt knotted at the waist- wouldn't that look ace?!

Top: Daisy Street via ASOS, trousers: Uniqlo, shoes: Marks & Spencer, glasses:Accessorize
MAC Impassioned lipstick is one of my favourites and the neon pink shade adds enough interest to make this feel more 'me'. Red lipstick would have been a more classic pairing but I actually love how much more fun this is! Paired with Max Factor Disco Pink nail varnish, I fulfilled all of my matchy matchy tendencies and felt slightly more summer appropriate- win win!


I had been eyeing up these Uniqlo gingham trousers for a while but wasn't sure whether they would fit me. Luckily these are a trouser/legging hybrid and even have enough stretch to fit over my hips! ;) I never thought I would wear leggings so happily but paired with a loose blouse, they are surprisingly comfortable and I felt super sassy in them. I was worried that they would be super warm but they didn't feel too smothering, even in the heat. Now I just need to buy all of the different patterns and have them on permanent rotation... 


Would you wear Uniqlo's trouser/leggings?

You look super sassy in these, it would look great with the blouse tied up and little wedge heels or your hair typed up in a scarf xx

I've been thinking about gingham trousers for ages but not gotten around to getting any. Might have to make a sneaky purchase of the Uniqlo ones! This is such a great outfit, love it with the sunnies especially!

Oh I love those trousers!! I kind of want a pair now... also loving the lipstick, Impassioned is such an amazing colour (although I'm obsessed with Relentlessly Red at the moment - proper heart-eye-emoji stuff!) xx
