I realise this is not a pair of trousers but I just wanted you all to know that I can occasionally buy things other than from COS! Is this not a lovely tunic? Yes, not hugely flattering, but hey I love stripes plus even more I love grey, what's not to love?
The Toast trousers were from eBay*, when I bought them they were really cheap and only on arrival did I realise they were very high waisted and thus not very comfortable. They were worn once for my Turkish New Year debacle and that was it. Now they seem better, maybe I have trimmed some muffin top off who knows, but it is with tremendous trepidation that I try on trousers not worn for a couple of years. Can you imagine how depressing it would be if I could not do the zip up?
I should really try them with a shirt tucked in but time was short so I played around with proportion instead.

- How utterly lovely is this jumper? A billy bargain from Next, I bought it in a size 20 to get it really baggy, it is sooo soft I almost can't wait for the weather to cool a bit so I can wear it. I said almost...
- Now this is a COS top again with wool, so very warm, I specifically bought it to wear with these trousers but guess what? The bloody blacks clash. I am gutted as it was my planned outfit for a housewarming party next week, le sigh
- The stripy shroud..but I love it so who cares.
- Ha, two in a row, have you ever loved something so much you buy it in two different colours? I have this cardie in a grey cotton, yes from COS, I love the structure and so when they did the same cardie in super soft black wool it was a must buy as it was in a lovely beige marle.
I really laughed at Belgian Waffles perfect description of Japanese asymmetric shrouds with massive sleeves made of boiled wool. Oh the cap so fits me I know. Sadly I do not teach at Goldsmiths or work on Cork Street but my heart goes via there daily
