Legs Eleven

Hi Folks! It’s been a while huh?

With being away in the US for work for almost two weeks and coming home to various house-move dramas, the blog has taken a little bit of a back seat I’m afraid.

Those of you that follow me on Twitter and Instagram though shouldn’t be disappointed though as I do find it much easier to quickly use these and often keep them updated.

Anyway, I thought I’d share a few of the trousers I’ve been wearing recently. It’s been better weather so I can go barefoot and free-ankled (I hate nothing more than wearing tights under trousers, or socks with shoes) and since doing the #Whole30, they all fit again!

I do love a pair of statement trousers and I’m looking forward to the summer when I get can more of them out with vests and silk tops.

I’ve also recently invested in some new jeans as I’ve found most of mine are now ill-fitting. The Gap Always Skinny are fantastic. Great fit, rise and wash. I may need to get them in the Dark Indigo too.

Tuesday Shoes-day

It’s a double-whammy edition today! Due to the snowy weather, and a walk to the station since the car is well and truly snowed in, I’ve had to incorporate appropriate footwear for both the trek, and the office.

First up… Classic Tall Chestnut Uggs

Granted probably not the best snow footwear, the walk isn’t far and I needed something warm as my Hunter Wellies, although more practical, left my feet freezing yesterday.

My outerwear consists of:

  • Burgundy Scarf – Zara
  • Navy & Black Faux Leather Waxed Jacket – Indigo by M&S

I’ve had these Uggs for AGES! Bought in NYC in 2006 I think, they are now soft and stretched but I love them. I did think about getting some chocolate brown replacements but didn’t in the end. When i get a hole, I’ll replace them. I know they are peoples’ shoe marmite but they work in my wardrobe. Incidentally, the jacket I’m wearing was purchased in the sale for £9 and was a Size 20 but my Mum worked her magic and took it in. Perfect!

Under the cold weather gear… Limited Collection Oxblood Patent Pumps

I love these shoes as they are so comfy and the heel makes them really easy to wear. An added bonus is that they make my feet look small, especially in these bootcut jeans. I’ve had them for about three years and bought them as I love the rich colour, that actually goes with so much.

I’m wearing them with:

  • Ditsy print Silk Top – Aubin & Wills
  • Navy & Oxblood Stripe Jacket – George at Tesco
  • Indigo Denim Bootcut Jeans – For All Mankind
  • Multi-coloured necklace – Vintage

It’s a bit of a print clash but the tones work and I love a bit if mix and match. I also don’t often get to wear jeans to work in the week so although dress-code for today was casual, I thought I go with my version of “never knowingly underdressed” casual.

What do you think? Weather-appropriate? Do you own a pair of Uggs you love and wear to death? Plus would you mix prints like this?
