Floral Cropped Trousers & Navy Pumps

Untitled I posted recently about how I have been favouring my jeans over patterned trousers but I think it was party because of the weather then as I'm back in love again now spring has sprung. A girl's allowed to change her mind, no? In fact, not only am I wearing them today, I'll also be wearing a different pair on the blog on Monday as part of a very special collaboration with 5 of my blogging friends! But back to today, where I'm wearing a pair of Gap navy floral patterned trousers I picked up in the sale a couple of weeks ago in Gap in Castlecourt, Belfast (as opposed to the outlet). I think they were about £12 (more expensive online - that seems to always be the case with Gap) and what I like about them is that they're not too 'in your face' and they look great with navy, light grey and white...and denim too. Lots of boxes ticked! They're a cropped slim fit with some stretch, so are very comfy to wear.

Today I wore them with a Boden denim shirt (similar here & here), navy pumps from Zalando (similar here & here) and the best-selling silver overlapping necklace from my own shop.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend - I'm looking forward to a quiet Saturday night in watching the final of The Voice while the hubby supports Ulster at Ravenhill! #SUFTUM and I'll be back on Monday morning!

  8. Those trousers are really pretty and as you say "not too in your face" and what a great price. Agree Gap prices should be the same online as instore, it's bad practice. I'm saying that because I rarely get to a store! x

  11. I adore those patterned bottoms from the Gap. I suspect you will wear them lots this Spring as they are very versatile. I like it with the denim shirt :)

  13. Thanks Mel - I've a hot and cold relationship with my patterned trousers...I go through periods of wearing them all the time and then I can't stand them for months! Loving at the moment...thought you probably noticed that already! Ax

  14. Thanks Andrea - that shirt has been the best buy...it just works with so many items in my wardrobe! Ax

  15. It's a strange customer proposition...but I guess it must work? Perhaps the online offering is more expensive for them? Anyway, I don't think I'd have taken a gamble on them at full price but for £12.99, they were a no-brainer! Ax

  16. I'd say they're so comfy - saw another blogger wearing them in the other colour way yesterday and she said they were her fav pumps! Ax

  17. You've got to add a denim shirt to your wardrobe! Brilliant for coloured denim and patterned. Sainsbury's had lovely ones last year! Ax
