Knot & Stripes

Now if you follow me on Instagram you will know that I bought these trousers a while ago. But this is only the second time I have worn them because I was being really picky and only ever wanted to wear them with a burgundy top to match the colour in the trousers. As they are mostly white I don’t want to look to wishy washy right!?

Annoyingly the only burgundy top I had was a turtle neck jumper that obviously was way too hot to be wearing over summer so I finally got round to getting myself a little cami that I could team up with these trousers. 

Trousers – Primark 

Top – Boohoo 
Sandals – Birkenstocks

I decided to tie this up into a make shift crop as I don’t know if anyone else ever feels like this but sometimes when I wear patterned trousers I start to feel really conscious that it looks like I am in pyjamas, which is part of the reason I never wanted to wear these with just a plain white tee. So I thought rather than just leaving it down loose or even tucked in, tying it up to become a crop top made it feel that tad bit dressier and so less like the pj’s look. 

I’m never normally one for trousers on holiday – I always think well you can wear trousers the rest of the year but shorts when it is freezing or peeing it down with rain is not ideal. Butttt this year I was determined to try something a little different and not always go with the same old same old. 

Plus it was a last minute holiday and was, I guess, quite late in the summer, so by the time I was actually thinking about buying some new holiday pieces, all the autumn collections started coming out. So I had to make do with what I had and get over my little scared I look like I’m wearing pjs thing… And I am glad I did because I do actually really like this look. 

Plusssss as it was late in the summer some nights were a little on the cold side so trousers were a good shout in the end!

Are you like me and get scared you are looking far too cosy in pjs or do you have anything that you are a little hesitant to wear sometimes?
