An outft of spotty trousers – and pushing the fashion boundaries; just a little!

 

 

Spotty trousers – something I thought I’d never wear!

Today I wanted to write about a common theme that I have observed many times – and something that happened to me on several occasions, until I decided that life was too short not to take risks and be open minded about new styles of clothes.

Often women see other women (quite often younger than themselves) wearing a particular pair of boots, a certain style of jacket or a slightly different outfit combination and love it. Their heart skips a bit, it brings a smile to their face and then they think “But I couldn’t do that, I’m too old/short/tall/”x” wouldn’t like it/ people will laugh at me/I’m not trendy enough/it’s just not me,” so instead they stay in their comfort zone of safe pieces, feeling slightly deflated and demoralised – that heart skipping a beat moment having passed them by.

Now that’s not a criticism but what I wanted to do in this post was to urge any of you who ever feel like that, just to go for it. It’s better to try something new and decide that it’s not right, rather than never go there in the first place and feel frustrated – and that doesn’t mean being a slave to the latest fads.  Skinny jeans, a pair of heeled boots and a blazer for a night out – it’s all do-able. Boyfriend jeans and heels or converse, a printed blouse, a coloured knit, a leather jacket, a sweatshirt, a bomber jacket, a statement necklace, a pleated skirt, a pair of culottes – give them a whirl.

The worst thing that can happen is that you decide not to go down that route but you may just wear your new things with a smile on your face and a spring in your step – slightly like someone from an advert for hairspray or laxatives – but hopefully not.

    LOL and spot on Beth. Now I just need to practice what you preach and hope I have a smile of someone doing the Silvikrin ad and not a Dulcolax ad.

    I love those spotty trousers! Are they the Top Shop ones? They are perfect to dress up for the office, ladies lunch date or even a dinner date. I want a pair!

      Helloooo! Yes you're right – Topshop but pretty old now. They did them in different colours for a few seasons. Maybe try the Boden Bistro Crop? They have lots of prints/designs. x

    You have the longest slimmest legs anyone could wish for. You'd look good in any kind of skinny jean. Sheila, Northampton

      That's terribly kind of you Sheila but sadly not quite true – this was more a case of a reluctant child sitting down whilst taking the photos. Worth remembering for the future though! Thank you for dropping by.

      It's all about confidence isn't it – and that's not easy for everyone – but small steps are always a good start, especially if there's lots of positive feedback. What are you going to be trying??? x

      Hi, you're right, the spots don't come through on the screen on a phone but they're there on a laptop. Hope you find them!

    I've always loved those spotty trousers Beth – I remember when you got them first. And great advice in just trying stuff – and if unsure, buy a cheaper version so you don't break the bank in the process! Avril x

    I tend not to create a ton of remarks, however after reading through some of the remarks on "An outft of spotty trousers – and pushing the fashion boundaries; just a little!".I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.Could it be just me or do some of these comments appear like they are written by brain dead people? πŸ˜› And, if you are posting at additional places, I'd like to keep up with you.
