TARTAN TROUSERS

CHOKER: H&M
TROUSERS: PRIMARK
TRENCHCOAT: H&M

I hope you all don't mind that my photos are shot in my bedroom, with it being so cold outside and literally having no one to help take my photos I've decided to adopt the mantra: Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. 


No wardrobe is complete without a bit of tartan. I'm used to wearing tartan printed shirts and scarves but its quite a statement when worn on the lower half of your body so when I bought these trousers last year from Primark I had some doubts about the purchase because I really didn't know how to style them but I knew I wanted them. Theres logic there somewhere...

I've looked no further than H&M this season for most of my knitwear and this stone coloured chunky jumper was made to team together with these trousers, they make the print look less "loud and busy" plus the neckline is just perfect to show off this beautiful pendant choker.

The lace up detail of these boots I got off eBay add a different dimension, especially with them being open toe, compared to your standard black boot. Totally weather appropriate...I promise no toes where hurt in the wearing of this outfit. LOL

If your like me, sometimes you may second guess a purchase but end up holding on to it incase you change your mind, sometimes you end up throwing/donating/selling it away but its great when you can get your moneys worth and actually wear it! So sometimes putting an item aside until later can pay off! 

PS: I am totally obsessed with matte brown lips! I am a huge fan of Barry M's lip liner in Chocolate LL6. Shoutout to the 90s! 

So what do you think of tartan trousers?
