Hush Cargo Pants

Holding off buying the Hush Cargo Pants back in July paid off as they were further reduced from £40 to £20 last week! Unfortunately, all the sale stock is gone from the Hush site now but it's worth a look to see what's coming in for AW14. It will make you excited to wear ankle boots and jumpers again.
But back to my bargain new trousers...I sized down to the 10 and they fit well and are a welcome change from my constant denim jeans lately.
Trousers- Hush SS14 (new season here - similar herehere & here)
Black Vest - Zara Basic
Scarf - French Connection (past season - square cotton from my own shop)
Sliders - Fitflops from Cloggs
Handbag - Boden (SS13)
So the black & khaki looked a bit plain but it was too warm for a jacket or a large scarf and then I remembered that I had this cute cotton square scarf I'd picked up brand new from the charity shop last year. It was in a cute presentation box with tags still attached and I loved the colours..even though I wasn't sure how to wear it. You see square scarves are tricky to tie but they're amazing to wear draped like this. Simply tie a small knot with opposite corners and hang it round your neck. It was just perfect to take the bare look off and as the Zara tops are quite tight, it meant I wasn't as conscious of the mum tum (much neglected since my back injury).
You might remember that I bought this bag last year in the Boden summer sale but returned it as I felt the colour combination was limiting. But then one night recently, I spotted a once worn one on eBay (it's boring having a bad back) and as I'd loved the shape and size of it, I thought I would keep an eye on the listing and luckily I was the winning bidder. For a bargain £20 including postage.
Picked a few of my favourites from the Hush AW range on these montages. I'm loving looking at all the new season stock and will be sharing bits and pieces I'm liking the look of from some of my favourite brands over the next few weeks. Because we've had such a lovely summer, I'm ok about the weather turning cooler and looking forward to digging out the cosy stuff again.

Have a great day..oh and before I go, I'm having a flash sale on all my summer scarves on this link - 2 for £10/4 for £20/6 for £30 as I'm making room for my own AW14 stock. These scarves won't be back in stock again and two thirds of the stock is already sold out so don't delay!



  1. Trousers look fabulous Avril. I love the cargo pant look as an alternative to jeans. That bag looks very soft and being Boden I bet it is


  2. Lovely outfit Avril....great way to tie the scarf! It gives some nice added colour and style to the overall look:)

  5. Love that scarf - it really does make your outfit - & swoooon at the new Hush stock! x

  6. Love these on you, a nice change from jeans and for that price it doesn't matter if you don't use the bag that often but great when you do get to use it x

    Oh that Hush yellow sweater with boyfriend jeans looks amazing. Just gorgeous. Lucky you re the trousers, meant to get some myself!

  8. Loving the Hush cargo trousers on. You did well with the bag, love the colours of the grey and red which really compliments the whole outfit which you have styled well. Xx

  9. Thank you Annmarie - I'm so pleased with it. Even if I just admire it hanging in the wardrobe rather than wear it that much! Ax

  10. Thanks Cathy - I didn't realised the sale stuff was totally taken off so quickly...would have bought a few other bits had I known! They must have outlet stores they move it over to - a bit like Next? x

  11. Thanks Sharron - I thought the same too! And yes, loving a change from jeans and like the idea of dressing them up too! Such soft stretch cotton. I'm a Hush addict now! x

  12. Thanks Nic! Sorry for tempting you x

  13. Thank you Sue - it's nice to have something other than jeans that are still as comfy but not too patterned or hard to match up with! Ax

  14. Thank you Jane - I've another scarf I can't wait to wear in the same way. It just smartens up the trousers I think....as they can look quite scruffy too x

  15. Thank you Anne - I see you have khaki & prints on your blog too - off for a nosey! Ax

  16. Thanks Fiona - it is a lovely bag. Such soft leather and really nicely made! Ax

  17. Great outfit Avril, love your scarf and cargo pants, well worth waiting for :)
