Whilst I love wearing jeans, when it comes to trousers I generally find looking for the perfect pair a bit of a nightmare. Whilst the styles which I like may look amazing on the hanger, the reality of trying them on is distinctly different. Given that I'm quite tall, I tend to struggle finding trousers which are a flattering cut and which I'm comfortable in. However, after trying on this pair from Monki a few weeks ago, I was really impressed. I really love the high waist, and the palazzo style seems to work really well with a lot of the pieces I've already got lurking in my wardrobe. This blouse from Warehouse was a savvy sale buy a few Christmases ago and it's definitely a real favourite. Teamed with the trousers I think it captures a hint of 70s style, perfect for cheering up the middle of a distinctly autumnal week!
Are you inspired by any style decade in particular? And do you like to experiment with your wardrobe?
