She wears the trousers...

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Haha not sure what Dave will think of the title of this post...he'd prob agree with it actually but I think we are more of a team.. we are both the eldest child in our families and only a few months apart in age..we both stress and worry about the same things and go out of our way to make sure the people around us are happy..our families are very important to us and we both love to talk..ALOT! We've been asked to leave restaurants before because they have closed and we havent noticed!
we are two peas in a pod :)

Anyways! On to the outfit..I bought these I guess you'd call them tribal printed trousers in H&M in Jan when everyone was out stocking up on winter sales stuff I was buying my spring essentials..which then sat in my wardrobe torturing me til the warmer weather appeared last week.

I dont wear alot of trousers, mainly cos Im very fussy about them..since leggings/jeggings came back on the scene I find jeans uncomfortable and too binding..lol comfort is key and im more of a dress preson anyway esp saying im pretty much obsessed with pattern..patterned trousers dont crop up alot..until i saw these beauties.. and at 20 something pounds they were a bargain..high waisted, elasticated, soft drape, narrowing in the ankles they seemed great for spring.
Im also loving cropped jumpers for spring..inc this one which im wearing to death Ive playing about with a tangerine one and a loose knit liliac one..
what items are you loving for spring?
oh! before I forget Ive been lucky enough to be asked by Wildfox to represent them in a new blogger project, they asked 12 bloggers to represent their star signs and be an Astrology Fox. I am now the Aries Astrology Fox! The details will be up on their site soon and Ive been sent the amazing Aries tee to style up to best represent me!
Be sure to stop by Wildfox and check out the Astrology collection!

  3. I am more of a dress person too, they are perfect for all seasons and cheaper too, since a nice pair of jeans costs a lot to say the least and then you still need some nice tops to pair it with... anyways, lovely outfit! I have seen this pants a lot before, but you really wear it in a creative way :) love it! x

  4. Ahh, love the trousers! I tend to wear my jeans more in the spring when it's not quite warm enough to bare my legs but too warm for thick tights. Loving the trend for ankle grazing chinos and trousers at the moment too. Lovely outfit, as ever!
    Feeling any better?

    I know what you mean about comfy trousers, since I bought my first pair of jeggings I've not put on a pair of jeans since.

  7. I agree so much! I thought I was the only person who thinks dresses and skirts are wayyy more comfortable than jeans. I hate wearing jeans so much! I love that bright blue sweater. It's so simple but so awesome! Pretty photos. =)

  12. So weird, when I was reading your post and you were saying about making people happy I was thinking I wonder if she's an Aries because my Mum and weirdly my 3 bestest friends are and they're like this; then lo and behold you're Aries Astrology fox!!! XX

  17. The trousers look fab, I love the print!
    Completely agree with you about finding jeans too uncomfortable to wear now, I found a great pair of black velvet trousers on asos though which are a pretty good compromise!

  48. that's really cool about how you guys are the oldest children and are all responsible. I'm the baby and my husband is the oldest. . .and somehow all of my best friends are either the oldest or youngest in their family and I don't get along too well with middle children or second borns (even if they are the youngest).
