Style inspiration: Basic Black Trousers...

Hi all!

 I'm back with a quick outfit post today. I love the chevron print in this top and paired it with my silky black ankle length pants. These are great to have for all occasions .... I have several styles I rotate according to the season and always end up buying some new ones too.
 Add  a pop of colour with jewellery to lift the overall look and you have a simple everyday style.



Top/Dunnes Savida range (old)  Pants/H&M  Bag/Coach  Shoes/old (market in Spain)  Necklace/Wallis  Belt/Penneys

Having a quick look around this morning Topshop have this lovely pair of tapered trousers still on sale


These are linen and also have a flattering ankle length which would look great paired with sparkly sandals and top for an evening out :)
 A fabulous bargain for £7 !! also check out Wallis for some lovely jewellery  I got a few bits while I was away last week in Donegal which will come in useful for A/W .

Now I'm off to do a little fake tanning as I didn't realise how pasty my limbs looked until I put up the photo!!

Hope you all have a good day:)
Anne xx

  4. I can't remember the last time I wore a pair of black trousers. I have one pair of black linen trousers - in the summer clothes box which I haven't got out as strangely enough I don't know what to wear them with. I do wear my white linen ones though which you would think would be harder.

    Seeing your picture reminds me ... I need new sunglasses!

    1. These are cheap ones...I am afraid to wear my favourite Chanel pair as I have broken good ones in the past!

  25. Nice pop of colour with the lovely chevron pattern. I have a couple of favourite black trousers - at the time I thought they were expensive but I've certainly had my money's worth and they always look brand new!!

  29. I'm so impressed with all of your adorable outfit combos! They are always so classic yet trendy! Love the basic black trousers :-).

  30. What a lovely outfit and pictures - I really like the chevron pattern on your top. And black trousers - you can never have enough pairs I agree. The sun has come out today and I've realised I'm completely white too - will it be around long enough to get the garnier out I wonder?

  31. Your black trousers look so chic with the black and white top. I also love the pops of yellow!
