So having bought the same pair of trousers (blue cigarette ones from New Look), Gina and I set ourselves a mini fashion challenge. The challenge was a simple one – we both style and wear the trousers and blog about it. I did a similar thing with Naomi recently and she looked LOADS better in the dress.
So here is my outfit:
Jacket – New Look
Shirt – Frock and Frill @ Simply Be
Trousers – New Look
Shoes – Dorothy Perkins
Scarf – New Look
Hands down this is my all time favourite outfit. I look how I always want to look – smart, sophisticated, chic and well, un peu Parisienne!
I have had to resist buying the jacket in navy as well – I already have it in black! I have a real thing for blazers at the moment and these ones are light weight enough to not feel stuffy but as warm as cardigans. I love grey and peach as a colour combination, so when I saw the scarf, I knew I had to have it! Especially because it has … yes you guessed it – birds on it ! I clearly have a problem! As for the trousers, as Gina said recently on Twitter, I have never met a pair of New Look trousers that don’t fit me perfectly. It is very true. All I want now is for these trousers to come in grey and I am sorted.
My love for Inspire continues – it’ll have a quiet period and then BAM! the site will be full of items I *must* have! My bank balance looks like I’m donating money to New Look sometimes.
Do you have an outfit that just makes you feel amazing? If so why?
Don’t forget to go and see how Gina styled her trousers.
