Check Trousers - Me New Spring 'Lewk'

Topshop Boutique V Neck Cashmere Jumper, £110 || Mango Knot Detail Trousers, £35.99 || Topshop Zip Backed Mid Heeled Boots, £49 || Similar Gold Hoops – Econe, £45 

If you’re anything like me you’ll have spent the entire winter wearing a navy blue jumper, jeans and black boots.

Every.

Day.

Well let me tell you people spring is officially in the air which means *newsflash* it’s just about time to start showing a bit of ankle. I mean obviously keep the cashmere jumper on for a good while yet, but you know, we could start to think about mixing it up a bit.

Well then ‘check out’ my new spring outfit – LOL (I found that funny anyway). Checks are everywhere this season especially on the blazer front so why not turn it upside down and get them on your bottom half as an alternative to the daily denim.

Then, may I encourage you to venture into white boot territory.  I admit I was nervous at first but as soon as I tried a few pairs on I was a convert – they instantly make your outfit look modern and go with everything.

Next up Toppers has been doing some surprisingly good cashmere of late (remember my Christmas cashmere hoodie?) I love this sand coloured one from Boutique. I sized up for extra slouch.

Finally, bung on some gold hoops and you’re good to skip amongst the daffodils – just be sure to attack your ankles with an industrial grade sander and a light fake tan before you leave the house.

I like the style and the price point is great for some kicking around in pants, but they haven’t matched up the plaid at the front seam – and an obvious seam – so they end up looking cheap.

Sorry Twig, agreeing with the previous comment about the plaid. Very obvious from the pictures that the plaid is seriously unmatched. After reading your journal a few weeks ago I popped into Mango for a peek and sadly I think the quality of the fabrics and the make up of the clothing not of a good standard. The pics and fashion shoots on their website are great but very dissapointing when you see the garments…sorry. I do love your journal though and your style.

Loving the trousers and entire look Twig. Might just have to pop over to Westfield to purchase!
