FASHION | The Perfect Black Trousers

Jumper - Uniqlo | Coat - ASOS | Trousers - H&M | Shoes - Topshop | Bag - Mulberry | Earrings - Accessorize

Back to black...I feel normal again now after my last post! So I got my trousers, I don't hang about. I went to H&M and tried on a few pairs, these were the perfect ones...black, the right fit and a nice material too. They were only £35 as well which isn't bad! I'm so used to skinny jeans that these feel a bit weird, I keep thinking they make me look bigger but they don't, I'm just not used to the looser fit. I'm gonna wear them all the time with everything, they're so versatile! I actually wore this same outfit this evening, I just wore heels and a blazer instead (see here.) As I said before, these aren't going to count as a piece because they're a basic I didn't own. I highly recommend you get yourself a pair too, I always thought they'd look too much for day time but they work for whenever.

I've had a good weekend, we went out on Saturday night to a Chinese buffet thing for my Mum's birthday and I ate everything, I even ate duck pancakes and I hate duck....I was just being greedy. I have CF Clinic on Tuesday though, I'm gonna tell my dietician and she's gonna be proud of me. Especially when I tell her that the next day at Bluewater I had chicken tikka and chips and a pie and mash (I've had three pies since that one I had at Covent Garden the weekend before trying to find one that tastes as good...so far none have measured up.) You know at the pie place in Bluewater an American served me and it made me feel strange, like I wasn't in Bluewater. Like how did an American end up working in a food place in a Kent shopping mall? I don't think that was his dream when he arrived here. I think England has let him down. When I got home I felt like I'd bought loads of lovely things and was all excited until I looked in my one shopping bag and saw plain black skinnies for work and a plain black t-shirt. Oh...I think I just saw lots of lovely things. But I'm glad I finally got the jeans, I've needed a new pair for months because I forgot to wash them inside out and the dye ran...I looked like I spilt milk all down myself which was not a good look.

  9. I pretty much live in Bluewater but I always find it weird to have tourists or foreign people working in there. Like it's my local shopping centre, what are you doing there?? It's definitely the first place I go when I'm back in the UK though :)

    Love how you've already styled the trousers so differently; making them look perfect for day and night!

    Good ol' Bluewater aha! Feels almost like my second home, I'm there every week for a cinema date (and this week twice) *saddo*
