Lookbook / Chictopia

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know that i don't wear trousers. It's not that i don't like them, quite the opposite actually but i just don't think they suit me. They don't suit my height and frame so i tend to stay away and stick to tights and leggins. That was until i saw these little gems in the Zara sale a couple of months ago. Zara has a good rep for trousers so i was pretty certain I'd find something suitable. The only thing i don't like is their sizing, they seem to have lots of tiny sizes but only a few larger ones. It's like hello! Just because I'm not a size 10 it doesn't mean i don't want to wear trousers. But i did find these for £15, which was pretty sweet. I'm rocking my favourite necklace from Babi-Online which is now currently doing the rounds on Tumblr.

I'm not very well today, I've caught the cold Matts been on about for days. The worst thing about it though is the fact that because i suffer really bad with my throat, i tend to get things worse than he does. Really can't be doing with feeling crap all week, especially with so much to do. I think the black in my outfit is channeling my inner feelings on this.

I'm really sorry for anyone who ordered scrabble items last week, I've not had time to get them sent yet but they will be on their way later on this week. I'm also going to make the t-shirts and canvas bags as soon as i see the light at the end of the uni load tunnel. So bare with me, I've not forgotten!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on yesterdays post, you seem to like it so maybe I'll stick with it for a few weeks! I'm also changing the layout of the Style Qs a little bit this week, so hopefully you'll like them too!

  3. Oh they really suit you! I think a lot of the battle with trousers (same with jeans) is finding a shop that makes a cut and length that flatters your particular shape.

  6. I love those trousers! They really suit you, especially with the long shirt and the dark lip you're rocking.

    Do you find that the feathers are constantly falling out of the Babi necklace? I'm always trying to reattach them but 5 minutes later it'll disappear again!

  23. they look great on you! i really like some zara trousers but they are always SO long on me! it makes no sense to me because i'm spanish and short and nearly every spanish person i know is short too so why do zara make their pants so long?!

  29. I love those trousers on you. Obviously I know you're not a tinsy size 6 or whatever, but you have nice thighs! I'm a size 8-10 and my thighs are awful! I HAVE to wear skirts because they're massive so you're totally lucky. I like that you know what suits you too.
    Lovely outfit, very flattering for your figure. and thanks for following my blog too! xo.
