This wasn’t the outfit I planned on posting today, but I wore it for my weekly after school Costa coffee with Isobel (minus the glasses and jewellery) and loved it so much I decided to go with it! I wore these trousers for this month’s Stylish Monday post, and I wouldn’t usually feature the same item again so soon. However, there’s no shame in re-wearing – in fact we should be encouraging it. If we, as bloggers/influencers, have real influence we should be normalising wearing our clothes over and over instead of contributing to the throwaway mentality of fast fashion. So apologies if you’re bored already of seeing these trousers, but I don’t think I’ll ever go off them!
To freshen things up around here I’ve paired them with a T-shirt that’s been in a drawer with the tag on for several years. I don’t know why I haven’t worn it before because it’s fabulous! Maybe it’s because I don’t wear black much lately, but the sequins are its redeeming feature. I also thought it was appropriate for the new season of Strictly Come Dancing as it says “Dancer” on it. (Isobel asked me why I was wearing it as I’m not a dancer…well it’s never too late to start!) As school run outfits go, leopard print and sequins is a little bit extra, but who wants to be boring? The sun caught the sequins in the car and created a glitterball effect – it was like my own mini disco!
This is the second appearance of these sunglasses from Hollywood Vintage on the blog. I think they compliment the sequin sleeves rather well. The green stones gave me the idea of choosing the green velvet bag instead of a black one. Then, that prompted me to swap my beige satin trainers for the gold and green glittery ones – it all escalated very quickly into a bling-fest! Well, Mondays do need brightening up, don’t you think?
