Topshop printed trousers with (yet more) sparkles.


Ooooh golly, it’s such a busy time of the year work wise that I don’t have time for my usual ramblings – which is probably a relief to many.

I bought these Topshop printed trousers before the summer holidays but I hadn’t got around to wearing them. However  since buying my black pointy Dune shoes (these are great Halloween shoes!) it’s made wearing quite a few outfits just that little bit easier. With a block heel and strong style, they go with lots of things and together with a navy sequin jumper from many moons ago, I really liked wearing these trousers.

There are lots of printed trousers around this season – lovely ones at Zara and H&M too. At £14.99 the H&M ones are a really good buy. They are 98% cotton and 2% elastane so they have a nice feel plus a little bit of stretch. Amusingly – or so I thought – they are called “slacks” on the label, which is what my Grandma always called trousers. I know that I’ve said it before but for anyone less sure of printed trousers, a dark background with a lighter print is more flattering.

And there’s these great H&M  cashmere jumpers (£49.99) which work really well over a printed trouser as they offer a little “bottom coverage” without being too loose and baggy. I’ve linked to the page so that you can see the different colours. The one that I have just bought is a pretty peachy/light coral colour which will pick up the same colour in the trousers. H&M also have a lovely grey cashmere cardi and a round neck jumper style too – so it’s worth taking a look if you fancy a little bit of cashmere but at a more reasonable price.



I’m away for a couple of nights in Wales with some friends over the weekend so I’ll blog when I get back. So far I’ve packed a Onesie and my trainers – an interesting sartorial combination if ever there was one.

    I'm soooo glad I stumbled across your blog, I'm approaching 41 & I have 3 double wardrobes full of clothes but I never have anything to wear! I'm sure there are plenty of outfits in there, I just can't find them… I am looking forward to gaining inspiration from your blog 🙂

    I'd love to know how the H&M cashmere washes as I really love this jumper. Keep us informed. Love your shoes, in fact the whole outfit x

    Lovely outfit – I especially love the shoes! I have cashmere on my A/W wishlist – including from Uniqlo – so am interested to know how the H&M jumper wears and washes. Keep us posted!
