How to Wear - Black & White Striped Trousers ♥

1. 2. 3. 4.
Today seems to be dragging on incredibly slow, like the snail type of slow, I've just put on Love Song by Sara Bareilles so hopefully this uplifts the tempo of my day. How is your week going? I'm currently stuck in the library blogging and typing up my notes from my law lecture. I met with my tutor earlier and she's really pleased that I'm all finished with my Final Major Project - so am I! I also found out that we come back from Easter on the 16th of April, I only thought I would be home for 2 weeks! Not that I mind, I'm quite looking forward to seeing everyone and most of all - having my mums cooking! I definitely think you can't appreciate your mums cooking until you move out the house, ahhh this is making me even more hungry... She's coming to pick me up on Friday so I have been ordered to pack up half of my stuff to make it easier for may when I finally go home. I think it's safe to say I haven't even taken the bins out today, let alone packed my stuff. I'll do it tonight when I get, sigh. Aside from me purely being lazy, I think I'm a bit hesitant to pack everything because then it really means I'm finishing uni. Living in a cramped house with my mum, dad and siblings isn't as fun as it sounds... 
1. 2. 3.

Anyway, I just wanted to do a post on how I would wear these black and white striped trousers from Missguided - aren't they amazing?! I'm not sure if those Topshop heels go with it but I like that it adds a little colour, and because they're quite subtle shades of pink and grey, I think you could get away with it. I had to include that Alexander McQueen clutch bag - I saw it and I've been in love ever since. It matches with the Topshop biker jacket perfectly and finally, I added the crochet vest because I think it adds some texture to it. We all know I can't pull of 'pretty' - I need to have some heels and tight leather somewhere! haha :) For the second outfit, I wanted to mix a bold colour against the stripes - orange is in for Spring this year so I thought now would be a perfect time to feature it. The blazer is from Rag and Bone, I think it matches the River Island heels perfectly - when using block colours, it's always important to have the same shade of orange. This look is really bold and daring but I just love how well it all clashes together - I don't mind clashing clothes every now and then. What do you think, do you prefer the first look or the second? ♥

  21. Arghh I just bought the ones from Motel for like nearly 50 quid!! Cant believe I missed these ones! Ack I might get both haha I cant wait to wear them though, Im holding off until its warm enough to just wear a blazer in newcastle as I think a jacket or a coat might spoilt them.. atleast the jackets that I have will anyway!
