This outfit post has been a long time in the making. Last Christmas I got an amazing pair of trousers from my parents. They were absolutely gorgeous, but they were miles too long. My aunt kindly offered to hem them for me. Although I could have done it myself, I was happy to let someone else do that job so I passed them over to her. She invited me over for a fitting, pinned the trousers to the correct length….and then forgot about them for a year.
So last week I got my Christmas 2013 trousers back from my aunt, freshly hemmed and pressed. And I couldn’t wait to wear them. So I popped them on to go to the movies to see Into the Woods.
See what I mean? They’re awesome. They have so much billow and volume. They are also really light which makes them a perfect choice for summer.
I am wearing:
– Blue vintage camisole (thrifted)
– Printed trousers (gift from my parents)
– Pierre Fontaine pucci print heels (thrifted)
– Moonstone necklace (gift from my grandparents)
– Assorted silver rings.

I am having a love affair with printed and wide-legged pants at the moment, and this pair ticks all the boxes. the only thing I don’t like about them is that they aren’t sewn at all along the sides. Which gives them lovely movement, but it means that when you get a stiff breeze blowing, the front and back of the pants blow apart, flashing your backside to the world. It’s not ideal. But I’ll now know better than to wear these on a gusty day!
