Now that may not be such a statement to some of you but for me it is a big thing. I NEVER wear trousers - I'm very much a skirt and dress kind of girl. However today I looked in the trouser section of the charity shops I visited and I actually bought a pair. Want to see? Actually that is a rhetorical question as I'm going to put them in the post anyway although you may choose not to look :) And you can probably see the top of the picture whilst you are reading this so you have already caught a glimpse. Anyway.....
Fancy (Per Una) red linen trousers. They are slightly too big and too long but they can be hemmed. I'm going to have to try them on with various things I already own and see if I actually like them. I also hoping they aren't like the linen trousers I owned years ago that got bigger and baggier throughout the day as you wore them.
The buttons are cute too!
I also picked up a pair of trousers for Anya - again they are too big round the waist and too long but they at least have those button adjusters inside and look quite cute turned up on her.
And they are brand new with price label still attached - and they have sparkly silver thread running through them! Anya wasn't that keen on them but we will give them a go. If not they will come in for Tara :)
I also picked up this cute waistcoat for Anya which she does like.
It's made out of t-shirt material and has pictures of ladies and grand pianos on it!
I also got this t-shirt for me - I love the scarf effect round the neck. I was actually thinking last night that I need to start wearing scarves more - maybe this will inspire me!
I've been after a decent black skirt for a while (the only other one I have is made of silk so doesn't get worn that often). This one is linen and really isn't as shiny as it looks in the picture!
And the piece de resistance is this gorgeous spotty and stripy skirt! I love it and it will look great with my red shiny shoes :)
See - pretty!!
I'll let you know how I get on with the trousers :)
