Dressing is stressful. I can’t count the amount of mornings I get out of bed, jump in the shower, open my wardrobe with the highest hopes in the world to be knocked down by my lack of motivation for what stares back at me. The result is a very soggy floor where I’ve been sitting wrapped in my towel for 45 minutes trying desperately to piece together somewhat of a stylish combination.
We’ve all had these days, although for a ‘fashion blogger’ of sorts you wouldn’t expect they would be so frequent. Friends are all “your clothes are so nice”, but I seem to always be wanting more current, more out there, just MORE in general. All too often I buy something and hate it a week later.
This poses quite the problem though when you don’t have those long 45 minutes to get outfit creating on your bedroom floor, and since I need to be out of the door for work each morning I’m lucky if I get just 5. That’s when these trousers beam out to me like a shining beacon of hope from my wardrobe!
I’m a sucker for relaxed fit tailoring, who doesn’t want to look a whole lot more put together whilst staying at comfort level 100? Me and trousers do not usually get along this well; it’s either baggy knees or gaping waist bands, but this Uniqlo pair have got it going ooon (in a good way!). I’ve got to say Uniqlo’s website imagery is not doing good things for these trousers or anything else for that matter so I’d recommend going in store if you fancied a gander, they have some fab basics.
This is me in a nutshell, my ideal outfit.
Comfortable, warm, oversized and easy, with a little ‘hiya’ to this season’s current trends in the form of the check detailing (probably last season’s now, but I’m cool with being a season behind).
Going back to the ‘too often I buy something and hate it a week later’ comment, it’s OK to feel like that! All of my clothes go through this love/hate cycle, one month I’m over-wearing (and probably subsequently under-washing) and the next it’s buried in the depths of my wardrobe and if it’s really unlucky, tied up in a bin bag with the rest of the rejects ready to donate to charity or chuck in a clothing bank. How annoying is it though, when you conjure up the most dreamy outfit and realise you threw the one crucial item out when you ‘hated everything’ during your last teenage wardrobe rampage. Here’s to hoping these trousers never get subjected to that treatment!
Fun and fluffy posts on fashion are my favourite to write and to read, but let me know what you would like to see from me because it can be bloody hard coming up with a fresh and engaging idea each week – hence why I tend to stick to what I know and love.
