Falling in love with trousers and the perfect pair of culottes

After recently discovering Emma Hill, I have kind of been obsessing over trouser-based outfits and it's made me realise how few pairs of trousers I have in my wardrobe. With winter on our tails, I've been thinking of ways to incorporate trousers into my outfits to save myself from getting stuck in a daily rut of denim from black to blue. Just because the weather is dull doesn't mean we have to compromise on our outfits I see winter as a great time to experiment with something more statement on your bottom half as you can always get away with a simple knit tucked in and you're pretty much good to go. Warm and cute ... tick!

Trousers have always been an area of fashion I've swerved, I think this is due to getting into a denim comfort zone growing up or due to me buying crazy coloured trousers in my younger teenage years that I felt totally embarrassed wearing! either way, Having trawled the high street I think I may have found the ultimate pair of culottes that not only fit like a dream but have well and truly made me a trouser convert!

I popped into River Island last week on a whim,  not really looking to purchase anything when I stumbled across these. I kid you not it was love at first sight and then marriage came having put them on! Another reason I have always avoided trousers is the fit, having such a slim waist has always made it hard for me to find a pair of trousers that are going to sit on my waist without a big gap at the back and without slipping down all day and without looking like my crotch area is being drowned by a bulk of material.

Here I have teamed them with a black knit that I also picked up from River Island with the CUTEST statement sleeves! (yes, the knitwear shopping has commenced!)  I also aim to wear these as a more casual look with the H&M Sistersociety top I posted over on Instagram a few days ago!

I would also just like to metion this beautiful leaf pattern ring that Jewelpoche very kindly gifted me, the style of this screamed Autumn to me so I couldn't not feature it in my first Autumnal outfit! you'll be seeing a lot more of this soon along with a stunning necklace they also sent over but until then feel free to use this link for £5 off your order !
If you have any trouser recommendations let me know as I am determined to broaden my selection!

I have linked this outfit below along with some other trousers that are on my A\W wishlist!


  1. Love this outfit! I've never been one to wear trousers as felt that they never suited me, but with a new season I may have to purchase a few pairs as I've seen so many people styling them, and I think they're kinda growing on me! Say good bye to my bank balance... oops!!

    Love Somachi xx

  2. If your man is pushing you away and acting distant

    Or if the guy you’re after isn’t giving you the time of day...

    Then it’s time to pull out all the stops.

    Because 99% of the time, there is only 1 thing you can say to a standoffish guy that will grab him by the heartstrings-

    And get his blood pumping at just the thought of you.

    Insert subject line here and link it to: <=========> Your ex won’t be able to resist?

    Once you say this to him, or even send this simple phrase in a text message...

    It will flip his world upside down and you will suddenly find him chasing you-

    And even begging to be with you.

    Here’s what I’m talking about: <=========> Is your man hiding something? He may need your help?

    Thanks again.
