As promised, here is the follow up post to the 'Japan Matsuri' piece I posted a few days ago where I carefully selected photos in which my fabulous cobalt blue tartan, plaid, check, (whichever you please) trousers were purposefully hidden behind octoballs and the like! (check out my other post to understand that sentence in context, no really. I don't want you to leave that to your imagination...) But, now I unveil to you my cobalt beauties in all their A/W13 mega trend glory!
There always has to be at least one goofy pic, you know me! Keepin' it real!
I bought these trousers rather compulsively from...wait for it...H&M kids! I'm guessing with childhood obesity on the rise kids sizes are just following suit. I mean, how else would I be able to fit my mighty swimmers butt into aged 13-14 trousers!? I'd already seen a lot of traditional red tartan knocking about and well, I'm not one to conform too obviously and blindly to trends so this modern take on tartan encompassing a striking cobalt blue colour really caught my eye. When I realised I had nothing to wear (okay, that's a lie) for my boyfriends birthday dinner that evening I immediately turned to my most recent buy. But...I had yet to buy any accompanying pieces to wear with them! As I was in work that day and wouldn't make it back home before we had to be at the restaurant, I ran out to New Look on my lunchbreak to buy a simple black cami, a piece which has actually enjoyed a much overdue revival from the era where every popstar worth her salt was rocking one, the best era ever, the 90's! I finished off the look with a simple pair of Zara heels and a black leather jacket. Simple and understated but oh so on trend!
