POTW - Metallic Trousers...

This week's POTW is inspired by a pair of trousers I saw online....

So far, I haven't bought the ones I'd seen!! This is mainly due to after deciding I NEEDED the said trousers A.SAP, I found some similar (ish) that I'd already got and for once (and because I hadn't got time to hit the shops), restrained....

The metallic trouser is going to be a big hit this season, it's that time of year for a start where, due to Santa's pending arrival we all go a little bit more sparkly! I love that you can dress them right up or, go a little J.Crew (my style basis for this look) and just add a knit and heels.

I bought these ones from Topshop in January and to be perfectly honest, my jubilation was immense when I remembered they were tucked away in the wardrobe!...Shortly after I also recalled that they were a touch on the tight side (potential muffin top overhang looming) - Major result when they did up and fit without having to 'squat to loosen'...(we alllll know that one, tight?)

With the trouser situation sorted I moved on to the jumper, again I knew EXACTLY what look I was going for and after several desperate attempts sifting through the husbands pile of knits I struck a blank...HE.HAD.TO.HAVE.A.BLACK.KNIT.LOOSE.FITTING.ROUNDNECK.JUMPER...?!

Again, I reverted to my own wardrobe, convinced there was nothing at all that would... Hang on... Ohhh....What's this...? This jumper was also from Topshop a while ago (hence why it had dropped off my radar)..

Clothing sorted - Accessories...

Again, inspired by the J.Crew glamness that's buzzing around right now, I'd set my mind on some excessive ear bling so after a 10 minute round trip to a local New Look and £5.99 later...;

YES!! (not entirely sure what happened to my hair colour here...?!)

So this is the mental mood board that I had..;

Trousers - These ones are the Mango ones I love, buy here.

Knit - Plain black (let the trousers do the talking). There are loads around, this one is from H&M but no link I'm afraid.

Earrings - Mine were cheaper than a bag of chips (large portion and battered sausage..?) from New Look, these ones are also New Look, buy here.

Heels - Mine were from Kurt Geiger a few years ago (good investment), these are also KG and available here. **TIP** When investing in nude shoes, try and match your skin tone as nest as you can, they elongate your legs!

Clutch - Again, mine is an old Topshop box clutch and very plain. Dune have similar here.

Ignoring the jumper panic, this was an easy outfit for dinner with the girls last night! 

What do you think? Are you getting your Crimbo sparkle on?
