I’m back with a good old workwear outfit post today. I quite like starting the week with a workwear outfit, it’s a true reflection of what I’m wearing on a Monday and it always seems to get a good reaction on social media so it’s something I need to try and work on. At the moment there’s just not enough time to shoot all my outfits I wear to work and at the weekend I don’t always fancy putting my work outfits back on to take pictures. I like work to be the last thing on my mind while I enjoy my weekend.
Anyway I’m excited to show off my new trousers. Of course they’re high wasted – I don’t really buy any other trousers these days as I’ve found my ‘thing’. Hey if it ain’t broke don’t fix it they say. I had been stalking the website waiting for these to come back in stock in my size. Luckily my twice daily (no seriously) stalking proved worthwhile and they came back in stock in a size 6. I’m usually a 4 in Topshop – don’t judge me, I’ve got a small waist but they didn’t seem to have a 4 so I ordered the 6. The reviews seemed to suggest they ran small with someone usually a size 8/10 having to get a 14 so I was hoping the 6 would fit. They are a little big and the 4 would have been a perfect fit so not really sure about the reviews as in my opinion, they run true to size. I did leave a review explaining that to hopefully help others although I expect they will probably be more confused than ever with such conflicting reviews. Hey ho, I have them now and they are super smart and classy. Definitely a great pair of trousers for the office. The material is really thick and cosy which is perfect for this time of year. The ruched frill detail at the waist adds a feminine touch and the check pattern is classic.
All in all they are a perfect addition to my wardrobe and they go very well with all my high neck victorian style blouses or as I’ve styled today with a simple thin knit jumper.
