I recently bought myself a pair of striped trousers and I'm already debating buying another pair. The final image here is from March 2014 but I decided to republish it with a few more recent looks added to the mix. A lot of trends do tend to fluctuate in and out of fashion and I feel like this trend is still going strong. Perhaps that's down to the statement this particular style of trouser makes which means that the trend is not overdone, thus allowing it to continue on through the recent years. Personally I would avoid anything that looks a little too "Beetlejuice" and stick to a thinner stripe.

When the weather is unpredictable, I tend to turn to a good pair of jeans a hell of a lot. Last year I got rid of a pair of white jeans that never fit me right and after seeing these looks again, it's making me want to hunt down a new pair. I love them paired with black boots and a black belt, I think the contrast is really cool.

Totally loving the floral embroidery trend that has been appearing in blogs for the past few months. It's also pretty popular in the shops right now, so I reckon this trend is only going to grow over Spring time. I feel like this has to be my favourite form of floral because there tends to be either a boho or gothic edge to the pieces. I have even dabbled in this trend myself by purchasing an embroidered faux fur coat that I featured in a recent post (here). There is almost too much choice of embroidered pieces in the shops at the moment, and for really low prices to boot, I've featured a few picks below. Enjoy!

Next jumper (old), Primark jeans (new) & Primark shoes (old)

I've spent the last two weekends in Leeds and I'm heading to York this weekend, busy busy, so of course the introvert in me has to take it easy the days after. I'm starting to get around to getting more stuff done again now. I've been trying to write more, well clearly not on this blog - however I was on quite a roll with it all but now it's slowed down again... We're still waiting on paperwork to come through regarding our new house in Leeds, bloody takes ages this buying a house stuff. Feels like I've been patient for months and now my patience is running out. Just ready to move in now and end this in between - limbo stage. I just can't wait to start making a home again, it's been almost 6 months now since we moved back to UK.

Outfit Diary | Striped Trousers

I turned 26 yesterday 🎈🎈🎈 and I went for my first smear test last Tuesday whilst I still had a few days of being 25 left. Going to the doctors gives me bad anxiety but the relief after I got it done was worth it! It really wasn't as uncomfortable as I thought it would be. I just closed my eyes and it was over so quick. I have now returned to volunteering twice a week. When I first started volunteering, I had a whole load of anxiety about answering phone calls, going in for the informal interview, about meeting new people and worrying if I was going to make mistakes - but now once I'm there it's always fine. I had took some time off to visit my hometown for Christmas but it ended up being a longer break than that because my Granfer passed away on Xmas eve, he was the head of our family and my Nan is a little lost without him. She also caught a nasty flu right before his funeral and she thought she wouldn't be strong enough to attend, however my family were urging her to go and she pulled through like the trooper she is. My Granfer was a stubborn and headstrong man but he loved his family very much and worked hard his whole life. Unfortunately dementia made his last few years on this earth pretty tough for him, but as he counted with awe the amount of people around his hospital bed, we are sure that he knew how loved he was.

We're weeks away from getting the keys to our new home and when I do you can bet the mirror will be in a place with a good lighting situation. Priorities! haha, anyway for now my posts might look like something from blogging circa 2012... but life goes on. Our new house is going to be a bit of a project. We're putting in a new kitchen and bathroom and we have to strip all this textured wallpaper off the walls and maybe plaster them. Then of course there is all the painting. However hopefully it will be a good investment and we will see some profit when we sell. And despite all the work, we will also get to make our home exactly how we want it. Although the idea of moving into a new build that was already done up was tempting... I am just looking forward to the part where I get to choose cool pillows and other homeware. Our new house is in the Leeds area, so a brand new city for the both of us. Tom already works there and currently has an 1:30 hour commute either way which will be cut down to 15 minutes when we move. Anyway, exciting times a head, just have to be patient in the mean time.
