I've been looking for a pair of spring/summer trousers and finally found some in the Topshop 'summer treat' sale. This lovely linen pair was only £25, reduced from £38.
It can be tough to buy trousers online as I find it so difficult to find a good fit. Hey, let's face it... when you have short lets, a big bum and a teeny waist, even when you're in a shop it can seem like a small miracle to find a good pair of strides.
But these fit really nicely and I'm so delighted with them. I can't wait to start experimenting with how to wear them. This evening, after opening my spotty Topshop parcel, I tried them on with a plain white vest top and a pair of green leather and wooden wedges.
Linen tapered trousers in coral
I also bought myself three pairs of colourful (apart from the black pair) ankle socks:
Textured ankle socks in peach
Pelerine ankles socks in taupe and black
There's usually some kind of deal on with underwear and hosiery, and I got these three pairs for £8.
I do love those spotty parcels.
