Folks, I’m obsessed with brightly coloured trousers. Especially cropped ones, which are the short girl’s best friend: they’re the only kind of trousers I don’t have to have altered!
I actually become obsessed with trousers at around about this time every year. In the Spring and Summer, I love the simplicity of being able to just throw on a dress and a pair of shoes and still look like I’ve made a bit of an effort, but once the colder weather sets in, it’s not quite so easy: you have to start adding things like tights (which I hate) and cardigans, and, if you’re me, sometimes even a long-sleeved top underneath it all, just to keep warm. I’m much too lazy for all of that, and I’ve never really been one for the “layered” look, so around about now I start to want to just throw on a pair of trousers and a top instead: still simple, but a little bit warmer than my usual dresses!
These particular trousers were an impulse buy in the Dorothy Perkins sale: I’m really loving all of the bright colours around at the moment (which make it even easier to make a really basic outfit look a little more interesting), and I couldn’t resist the colour of these. I wore them with my silver sandals, which were about £2 in a thrift store years ago, and are still going strong!
I don’t think I’m quite done with the trousers, though…
