OOTD: I now own a pair of pants!

December 19, 2010

The snow has attacked our little country once again! So many people here are complaining -we LOVE to complain!- but personally I love snow. I hope its still here for Christmas! I think I am the only blogger who doesn't have pictures in the snow but I don't have anyone to take them for me (and I would look/feel incredibly silly trekking out there with my tripod!)
I tend to get in a rut of wearing black tights with everything during the winter so I stopped by Primark to find some pants, or trousers as most people here call them. About 40 minutes and 5 elbows-in-the-side later I found these dark grey peg leg pants. The fit is a little off, which is not Primarks fault but rather my oddly shaped body! Perfect on the waist but baggy on the legs, aside from that I think I like them.

Blazer: Tesco *** Top: Tesco *** Necklace: Primark *** Pants: Primark *** Wedges: Primark

The pictures don't capture how the pants look very well, whoops! I paired them with the blazer that I wore to a job interview back in September. The top is also from Tesco and I snapped it up for the mighty sum of €3.20, marked down from €18.50!
I have been trying not to spend too much on clothes this season, hence my whole outfit being from cheaper stores. I don't even remember the last time I was in my favorite stores. This whole outfit cost less than €65 which is about the price of one dress or cardigan from Topshop. I will probably buy a lot of my SS11 clothes from TS but I have put myself on a budget for the winter months!

Ps. Hello to all of my new followers! I have quite a few since my last post so thank you for stopping by my blog. I am thinking about having a little giveaway when I reach 850 followers as a "thank you" from me to my readers. ♥

I hope everyone is having a lovely December so far!

xoxo

  4. This look really suits you - you look smart, but not in an over the top way :)

    The majority of my clothes seem to be from Tesco & Primark! Can't go too far wrong with those prices!

  6. Wow, that's lovely!
    I also hate shopping for trousers. I have quite an ample belly then when it comes to my legs it bags and sags. Sob.

  23. Like the change to pants. You can have that too! I agree you don't have to brake the piggy bank to look stylish. Takes more of an effort, because you can't always rely on the fabric of cut.
