|Florence lace dress|
I had a very bad habit a little while ago of only buying dark coloured clothing, I lived in black and there was pretty much NO colour in my wardrobe, now when I put an outfit together I will not allow myself to choose two dark coloured items. By adding a coloured or a patterned top I am then able to wear my comfy and trusted dark coloured trousers happily.
The blouse I picked is the Juliet Hanky Hem Blouse in a floral print, a white based top with flowers over. It is cut from lightweight chiffon which flows and drapes the silhouette, the shoulders have an intricate pin tuck design to them and the body is jersey lined which helps to make this top fall over my lumps and bumps and of course covers my mummy tummy rather nicely. This top is £55 although currently on offer for £35.
I am teaming this with a waterfall cardigan – this is a shawl style cardigan in a heavy knit, it is a mixed colour blend of black mixed in with silver, perfect for the cooler evenings and the cold mornings, the school runs or for pulling on when I am working at home in the evenings instead of putting on the heating.
I’m undecided currently which trousers I will be wearing – my black or blue jeans. That decision will be made in the morning depending on which fit better after pigging out on a carvery for dinner with Paul and Jaime tonight.
Edit: I actually wore the trousers I was sent from Celuu on the day, I was unsure of these to start with as being petite at only 5ft 2 they were rather long on me. I tried them on at home and kept pulling them up, so had planned to send back, however I did pack them just incase and I am so very glad I did. I rolled folded the bottoms up twice and teamed with a pair of heeled ankle boots to hide the extra material and they were just so comfortable. They were a mix between trousers and leggings – called Treggings, these come in 3 different colours – I opted for Black so they would go with many outfits and they cost £49. They are made from heavyweight Ponte and are highwaisted so held me in securely all day long, they were a really good fit everywhere but the legs which I solved by turning them up. These didn’t ride up on sag like most leggings do when I wear them and remained comfortable all day and into the evening too.
