1. Co-Ord Tapestry Trousers

2. Metallic Geo Jacquard Trousers 
3. Jodie Trousers by Motel
4. Khaki Flock Spot Trousers

I have been eyeing up these trousers recently from Topshop, as I've been thinking a lot lately about how I dress, and I've come to the conclusion that I look a little bit untidy, but that has always been the way I dressed, cut off ragged denim shorts, Dr Martens and my dad's shirts so in an attempt to look smarter I have bought some, what I would consider, 'staple' items and so far I've managed to cross off my list: a white blouse, a black skater skirt and black leather shorts and the only things left are a pair of smart shorts, trousers and a black blazer so that I can mix and match and have items that I know will go with most things. Since my hair is quite funky, in that half of it is shaved off, I like to think that I could still maintain an 'edgy' look even though I'd be wearing more formal things. I like the idea of juxtaposing though, I'm all about textures and colours at the moment, and the gold Jacquard trousers are influenced by The Man Repeller in her section in ASOS magazine and she was wearing a gold jacquard skirt with a black jumper and I thought it looked good so it got me thinking about textures and picking clothes with interesting features and patterns that I might not have originally considered before.

I always over think outfits as well, by that I mean i always try to get the right silhouette, colour, length, texture and try to make them as funky and outlandish as I can, but I keep forgetting that I like simple basic things, like jeans and a shirt and I don't like to try and do too much in my outfit with too many colours or whatever, because my hair makes an impact on its own, I feel like I can tone down my outfit so I don't have too much going on, which is how I like it.

So these are the bits that I bought online this morning..

Black Ponte Skater Skirt - River Island
I'm super excited to wear this skirt with a white blouse, an orange blazer, black tights and sparkly boots, I have a friend who wears skater skirts a lot of the time and she looks like she has so much fun in them so I hope I can too.. haha

Leather Shorts - H&M

I don't know how I'm going to wear these but I'm sure I'll figure it out.. but I am very excitedddd!
