The work-to-party trouser that I refuse to take off

I didn't intend to buy the trousers. I intended to buy a cami top. Said top didn't fit and I returned it. I have the mind set that once purchased, that money is spent. If I then return, it's like free money and I can splash it on what I please. This is a dangerous mind set. Do not copy.

However, I stumbled across these trousers on a few Instagram stories and the words 'why not' ran through my mind. I ordered an 8, risky as my hips are a 10 and waist a large 6, if that's even a thing. When I say they fit perfectly, I am not lying. It's like they were made to measure. 

The paperbag style is a very big trend as the minute, and I previously tried a skirt with the design and hated it, in ear that nothing would look right tucked in, and definitely not hanging over the top. However, these are so very high waisted, that tucking a blouse or a t-shirt in shouldn't be an issue. Add a pair of loafers or court heels for an office look and you're good to roll out the door at 6am.

If you prefer to roll in the door at 6am on the other hand, after a wild night on the town, these should do you just fine also. For my 'night' look, I added this cheap as chips bra-let with double cross straps, and my gorgeous strappy Kurt Geiger heels. These shoes are the most comfortable heels I have ever owned. I wore them to the UK Blog awards recently and could have probably run to the place and been ok (and by ok I mean my feet because I DO NOT run and think by heart would give over if I dared more than a slow jog). I don't know if it's the high but not really heel height, or the sole, or what, but I could wear these all day and feel good. 

The moral of the story is to get yourself a nice pair of trousers. Ones that are thick enough to not see your underwear, but thin enough that summer party outfits are sorted.
